This River Bank Lodge one-bedroom condo was remodeled in November, 2011, with a functionally superior new floor plan featuring a “U” shaped design for the full kitchen. This one bedroom condo is managed by the owner and is perfect for a couple or a small family. It comfortably sleeps up to four adults plus now has a full-sized kitchen which will save time and money for those who choose to stay in and enjoy this cozy condo. It is peaceful with all the amenities of home along with a spectacular and unhindered mountain view.
After spending some time in our place, we realized how much we disliked the original design due to an extremely inadequate walk-through kitchenette and a floor plan that the bathroom/Jacuzzi consumed way too much of the total living space. We know that many guests do not want to go out for every meal due to the time it takes and the expense so this past September we gutted the place out, removing the ancient leaking hot-tub and stupid shower head that came out of the ceiling. We now have a beautifully equipped, fully-functional and well-designed kitchen that can be the social center for our guests to enjoy and entertain that merges seamlessly into the dining room area and living room. Some of the other one-bedroom rentals in River Bank Lodge may have dressed their places up but it is still the same old floor plan better suited for an RV than a winter and summer condo. We love our new design and we are sure you will too (where do you hang out most, the bathroom or kitchen?).
Full floor to ceiling windows offer an incredible unobstructed view of mountains, skiers on their way down the slopes and wetlands that touch the building. There is no way a permit would be granted to build on this location today where the building touches the wetlands off the Snake River complete with beaver dams. We can see ducks, geese, beaver, fish and the occasional fox plus a moose was seen in September from our picture windows. The view from the living room, dining room, gives you the feeling you are in the middle of the wilderness except you have a fireplace, flat screen TV and the comforts of home to enjoy, including the full kitchen.
Sip champagne, wine or your favorite smoothie and relax. If it is near a full moon, spend a night sleeping in the living room by the fireplace looking out at the great outdoors. The photos from the living room you take home will have your friends thinking you took them from your tent but you do not have to tell them you were not camping out.
The common areas have had several recent upgrades to the interior and exterior of the building plus a new enlarged deck area on the rear of the building overlooking the wetlands. The condo lobby has a fireplace, seating space and a great view. This is an excellent spot to enjoy some down time or meet new friends. Our new, limited exercise room opened July, 2011. A new water heating system provides plenty of available hot water. Hopefully the snow will be covering up our newly sealed/stripped parking lot. There is one parking space for each unit with a tag provided for your car. Parking is free on-site and additional free parking is available nearby, if needed.
We do not charge for cleaning fees, which many others tack on. We supply the initial paper products, soaps and some basic kitchen supplies. Our rates accurately identify exactly how much it will cost you. No hidden fees except there is no escaping the taxes levied by local and state government agencies, which is 5.775%. Free WiFi.
You can arrive any day of the week you want and the longer you stay, the lower the per-night rate, which we automatically have built-in discounts for longer visits. Ask about our 3-day Front Range Metro Guest Weekend special rate, which allows you to arrive on Friday afternoon and check out as late as 8 pm for the 2 night standard two night rate. Why spend Sunday packing the car and sitting in the return traffic when you can ski/board all day, fix dinner and then head home? Once you stay with us you automatically get 10% off for future visits (including our vacation rentals in Costa Rica)
This vacation rental is available year round and rented on a first come, first served basis for visits as short as two nights or up to three month long-term stays. If your plans are in the early stages, I will be glad to hold any dates you want which gives you time to complete your planning. If I get another inquiry for your dates – you will have first rights and 24 hours to make a decision at no obligation.
With the wetlands next to the Snake River, River Bank Lodge is one of those unique properties that you will never forget. View wildlife right from your couch, yet be close enough to shopping, restaurants, and ski slopes!
Looking to the west, you have a full view of the Ten-mile Range near Frisco and Dillon. You can easily walk to slopes; the gondola is only a three minute walk.
River Bank Lodge is located on the tranquil side of River Run Village area of Keystone. A short 3-minute walk is all it takes to get the Keystone Gondola loading station. In half that time you are in the center of Keystone's River Run Village shopping, restaurants, and night life. For those of you addicted to Starbuck’s, don’t fret, there is one waiting for you in the middle of the village. River Run has everything you expect for a mountain village with lots of late night ambiance for those winter nights or cool summer evenings, including a community firepit. River Run Gondola and Summit Express lifts are an easy walk (150 yards) away. Walk across the street to the Haywood Café for a great breakfast, lunch or dinner menu to select from.
