Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Welcome to "Mountain Escape", our Dillon, CO lakefront vacation rental condo in the heart of Summit County (Ski country USA!)

Timberline condos are some of the largest and most spacious 2 bedroom units we found when looking for a vacation rental property to purchase in Dillon. At just under 1300 square feet, this unit has plenty of room for you to spread out and relax! Additionally, this is a top floor end unit (21 steps up), which means that there is only one shared wall with a neighbor and the ceilings are vaulted which expands the spacious feeling of the unit.

RENOVATION: WHAT HAS BEEN CHANGED

We bought this property in June 2012 and have since gutted the entire unit and have rebuilt it from the bottom up! Below is a short descriptive list of all of the changes that we have made to the condo:

*New wood floors

*New carpet in the bedrooms

*New tile in the two bathrooms

*Steam shower & Jacuzzi tub in master bath

*New trim and doors

*Freshly painted throughout

*New light fixtures

*Fireplace has been converted from wood to gas

*New linens & bedding

*New furniture (except for the comfortable leather sofa in the living room, which we loved so much we just couldn't replace!)

*New custom kitchen design including 7' island, granite countertops, stainless-steel appliances

We have re-designed the kitchen floor-plan from the original galley style to a larger plan that includes an impressive 7 foot island. The counters are made of beautiful solid granite. This custom kitchen is equipped with new stainless-steel appliances (refrigerator, microwave & oven.) The sink & dishwasher are located in the island. You will enjoy preparing your meals in this brand-new, well-stocked kitchen!

PERFECT FOR TWO COUPLES TRAVELING TOGETHER

Our condo possesses two large bedrooms, each featuring a king-sized bed with cozy bedding and linens. The master bedroom is outfitted with a gorgeous natural wood king sized bed with matching nightstands and dresser. The second bedroom features a king-sized black iron bed with rustic nightstands and chest of drawers. Both bedrooms have flat-paneled TVs with cable service for you to enjoy your favorite TV shows from the comfort of your bed!

NOTE: The maximum occupancy for our condo is four people. We cannot accommodate more than four people, even on air mattresses or sleeping bags. Additional fees may be incurred if your party exceeds the maximum occupancy as per our rental contract.

There are two newly remodeled bathrooms to enjoy in this condo. The largest is connected to the master bedroom, but is also accessible through the hallway. The beautiful hickory vanity is equipped with double sinks. And because Timberline does not have a public hot tub, we made sure we included luxury features in this bathroom such as a brand new Jacuzzi (whirlpool) tub as well as a new state-of-the art steam shower. (Wouldn't you rather luxuriate in your own well-maintained and private Jacuzzi bath or steam shower than share a public one with strangers? We thought so!)

The second bedroom has an ensuite bathroom. This bathroom is also fitted with double sinks in a hickory vanity and has a shower. The entire room sports beautiful new tile.

The main living area is an open and airy space that incorporates the kitchen, dining area and living area and is capped by soaring vaulted ceilings. Relax on the comfortable leather sofa in the living area and watch a movie or your favorite TV show on the large 50-inch flat screen HD TV. (An upgraded HD package is available in this room.) Or enjoy the convenience of a cozy fire in the fireplace with a flick of the switch, and settle in with a glass of wine and a good book.

WHAT THIS CONDO HAS THAT MOST DO NOT: SPACIOUS BALCONY & MILLION $$ VIEW!

But I've saved the best for last! Because through the two brand new 8 foot patio doors is the most breath-taking view you have ever seen! Our spacious deck and the view it provides is the crowning jewel of this unit and is the primary reason why we purchased this condo. Despite all of the work that needed to be done to update the condo, we couldn't forget the majestic views of Lake Dillon and the Ten Mile Range that this unit provides. You will be drawn again and again to enjoy the sight of the merry sailboats on the lake in the summer time or the kite-boarders on the ice in the winter time. Enjoy your meals al fresco on the bar-height iron patio table & chairs, or sit and converse on the comfortable Thomasville patio set. There is a gas grill available on the deck.

ACTIVITIES IN SUMMIT COUNTY

Summit County offers so many activities it is hard to describe them all. In the winter there is world-class skiing just minutes away at Keystone, Breckenridge Resort, Copper Mountain, Arapahoe Ski Basin & Loveland. If that isn't enough, Vail and Beaver Creek are 30 minutes away. The free Summit Stage transportation will pick skiers up just a block away and can take you to many of these ski resorts as well as to the Silverthorne Outlet Mall and other destinations such as the quaint, nearby town of Frisco. (See the link below for the “Summit Stage Free Transportation Map”.) Other winter activities include cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, tubing hills for the young at heart, and dinner sleigh rides for a memorable, romantic evening. (See the link below for “Dillon Colorado Vacation Activities”.)

The rest of the year in Summit County is just as enjoyable (if not more so!) than the winters. Each Friday morning during the summer Dillon offers an amazing Farmers Market. Also during the summer you can enjoy (free) concerts at the Lake Dillon Amphitheater each Friday (“Friday Night Concert Series”) and Saturday (“Sunset at the Summit”) nights. The amphitheater is located one block from our condo.

Other summer activities include biking (bike rentals available right in town), hiking, boating, kayaking, sailing, fishing, horseback riding, and whitewater rafting.

UPDATE (Sep 2016): The Town of Dillon has embarked on an expansion project for the Amphitheater which will be under construction until sometime in 2018. Part of the amphitheater construction project is the reconstruction of Lodgepole Street, the street directly in front of the Timberline building.

Please be aware of these improvements being made at the amphitheater (which is located one block from our building) which may temporarily impact residents & visitors to the area until the completion of the project. The recreational bike path on the Dillon side of the lake will remain open to the public with appropriate signs and fencing that will guide users of the path to keep in areas that are safe for public use.

2017 CONCERT SERIES: Concerts will be held at the Dillon Amphitheater Fridays and Saturdays from June 16th- July 8th, 2017. Concerts will then move to Dillon Town Park and be held every Saturday Night only through Labor Day Weekend. All Concerts Begin at 7pm.

If you are looking for a spacious, clean, up-to-date and beautifully furnished vacation rental property with a view to die for, this is the one for you!

About Valerie

We are Redgie & Valerie and live in the beautiful state of Colorado! We love to travel and experience new adventures as often as possible. Valerie has been involved in the vacation rental industry since 2002 (a former employee/Manager at VRBO/Homeaway until she retired in 2013.)

We bought our first vacation rental property in Summit County, CO (VRBO 382)and now are happy to own our two beachfront condos in the warmer climate of Florida (VRBO 2462 & 232742)! Our fourth vacation rental (VRBO 1508) is a cute little cottage in Lynchburg, VA. We have loved sharing our homes with our guests over the years.

Valerie purchased this condo in 2012

Why Valerie chose Dillon

We first visited Dillon in 2009. We had such a great time and were so awed by the majestic beauty of Lake Dillon and the mountains that we knew if we ever could buy a vacation rental property of our own this is where we would want to be. There is so much to see and do in Dillon and the surrounding area that no matter what the season, we always look forward to coming back and spending time here.

What makes this condo unique

The unique benefit of this condo is the amazing view of the lake and surrounding Ten Mile Range that can be enjoyed from the large deck. The condo itself is one of the largest 2 BR units we saw when we were looking to buy. You can't beat it for spaciousness and the million $$ view!

Perfect Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed with Valerie a number of times and have never been disappointed with our stay, or the property. Everything a person could need for a great weekend has been provided by the Rogers. The home is well taken care of and loved. Valerie is available for assistance and wants to make your stay perfect. We love this home and will return in the future for another fix of the mountains.

Beautiful condo and views

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a week in September 2017. The condo was very comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. The views were amazing! The only issue for us was the stairs (2-1/2 flights) up - but that was primarily because my husband had pneumonia. Would definitely stay again if we're ever in the area. Had one very minor issue upon arrival but the owner took care of it very quickly. Highly recommend.

5 star condo/5 star experience

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our week stay here in unit #36. Valerie was a joy to deal with. She was so helpful before and during our stay. And she made sure we had access to her or her assistant throughout our stay to ensure we were taken care of.

Her condo is everything you'd want, and then some. All top of the line stuff. She even had a coffee grinder, which made hubby sooo happy! And the pantry had so many supplies. Not what we usually run into with VRBO units we've rented in the past. So that was also a pleasant surprise. And I'll have to say the beds are sooo darn comfortable. We thought we had the best bed ever. NOT.

Valerie even helped me out with my insomnia situation. The place was so quiet at night you could hear a pin drop. Sucks for insomniacs like myself. She suggested an app and it truly saved me. I got the best sleep after that.

We've rented at least a dozen units thru VRBO in the last few years and both my husband and I agree this is the best unit by far we've stayed in. And that says a lot, given most have been great experiences.

Thanks so much Valerie!

Owner's Response: Your very nice review made me smile....thank you! We are very pleased to hear how much you enjoyed your stay at our "Mountain Escape". As you have seen, we try very hard to anticipate almost every need our guests may have and create a comfortable and lovely experience for them when they stay in one of our properties. It is gratifying to hear that our guests notice our efforts! I'm glad the "white noise" app helped you sleep....I use it all the time! We hope to host you again the next time you visit Dillon.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a tremendous time at Mountain Escape. We loved that there were 2 king beds - this is a rarity. The condo was well stocked with anything one would need in the kitchen. The towels were luscious, and the condo was immaculate.

There were 2 tiny issues, which are simply maintenance issues. First, the fan did not work in the 2nd bedroom bathroom, and the shower water pressure was poor in that same bathroom.

We loved the views from the balcony, and spent a lot of time out there. It's a magical place and we definitely will return.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your very nice review! We are so happy to hear how much you enjoyed your visit. I am surprised to hear about the issue of the fan & water pressure in the 2nd bathroom....we will have our handyman right out to check that out. I appreciate you letting us know about the issue so that we can address them before they become bigger problems and so that it does not impact more guests. We hope you'll consider staying with us again the next time you visit Dillon!

Best condo in Summit County

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this beautiful condo for 2 weeks in August 2017. The unit had everything one could ask for in a rental (in fact it included items I would like to have in my home) and it was very clean. The view of Lake Dillon and the mountains was truly a Million Dollar view.

I highly recommend this condo.

What more could you ask for

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided to book this condo because of the pictures online and the location, and we are so glad we did! The condo is actually much prettier than the pictures. And the views are (we think) the best you could have in this area of Colorado. Waking up each morning to a view of Lake Dillon and surrounding mountains was incredible (especially coming from flat Florida). The location was great! There is a City Market and liquor store within a few minutes drive of the condo, and several very good restaurants within walking distance, The recreation path that circles Lake Dillon is accessible right out in front of the building. We golfed a few times and all of the golf courses were within a 10-15 minute drive which is very convenient. As far as the condo, the kitchen is extremely well outfitted for a vacation rental, and there is a gas grill on the deck, so we cooked out several times. The deck is very large since this is a corner unit and the seating is very comfortable. We ate lunch outside on the deck as there is a bistro level table and chairs so you get a great view. The master bedroom bed was very comfortable and the master bath was quite amazing! It's not often we rent a condo that has more niceties than our home in Florida. But this bathroom had a shower with multiple shower heads (we like the rainfall shower head the best) along with a steam shower. The tub is a jacuzzi tub which was very helpful after a long day of hiking uphill. Having a washer and dryer right inside the unit made it so we didn't have to pack as many clothes which is always helpful. The owners have really provided everything I could imagine you'd want from a rental. We were so pleased, we are already booked for next year.
