About the property

Close to six major ski resorts

'Mont Maison', a mountain home with views in three directions, is a newly remodeled, cozy two bedroom, two bath condo nestled high above Silverthorne, in the Wildernest Area, in the heart of Summit County. It is a short drive (10 - 30 minutes) to seven premier ski resorts: Copper, Keystone, Arapahoe Basin, Breckenridge, Loveland, Vail and Beaver Creek as well as three cross country ski areas in Frisco and Breckenridge. Surrounded by National Forest area, local trail heads to Eagles Nest, Lilly Pad Lake and Buffalo Mountain are just a half mile away.

In the summer, you are close to breathtaking hiking, biking, fishing (in Lake Dillon and the renowned Blue River), kayaking , sailing, rafting and horseback riding. Foodies will welcome the good variety of restaurants in Dillon, Frisco, Breckenridge (our favorite is Blue River Bistro) and Keystone (including the famed Alpenglow Stube, a AAA Four Diamond Restaurant). The numerous cultural events during the summer--jazz and blues festivals, the Bravo Music Festival in Vail, the International Dance Festival in Vail, summer stock in Dillon, juried art fairs--are some of the many activities available during the months of June -- September. Every summer booking will receive a complimentary listing of these activities.

From the south-facing balcony of Mont Maison you'll have breathtaking views of Buffalo Mountain and the Ten Mile Range. The condo can sleep 2 -- 5 persons. The master bedroom has a king-size bed, the second bedroom has a queen-size bed and desk, and the living room has a queen-size sofa-bed.

The living room features panoramic views of the mountains, a toasty gas fireplace and stereo system. The beautiful kitchen is completely outfitted with all utensils, a microwave, coffee grinder, coffee maker, blender, Cuisinart, KitchenAid Artisan mixer and basic commodities (sugar, flour, salt, pepper, olive oil, vinegars, about 20 spices, etc.). The living room has cable TV and a DVD player, while the second bedroom has a TV and desk for your laptop. Quality bedding (600-thread count sheets), fluffy towels, paper goods, liquid and our signature bar soaps are provided. As a bonus, a washer and dryer (including laundry soap) as well as free wi-fi are part of the condo. Watch Hill is one of few condos complexes with an elevator making this a breeze for persons with disabilities and those adjusting to the high altitude. Down the hall are both an indoor and outdoor hot tub. Think hot tubbing in the moonlight in all seasons!

Note that to protect those with allergies, this is a non-smoking (cannabis, tobacco and e-cigarettes) home and that no pets are allowed. While we want you to have a great time, events and parties are not permitted.

The free year-round Summit County shuttle bus stops down the street and takes you to the nearby ski resorts, nearest grocery store, and outlet shopping at the fifty-one Silverthorne Factory Stores.

Unlike other condos, we do not charge an additional clean-up fee for rentals of six days or more.

You will have a terrific vacation in the breathtaking mountains of Summit County in the heart of the Rockies and will look forward to your stays at Mont Maison year after year!

About Mark Horowitz, Nance Horowitz

Nance and Mark live in Fort Collins, and are in love with the Summit County experience: "Fourteeners", downhill and back country skiing, snowshoeing and biking trails plus an unbelievable array of cultural activities like plays, top tier symphonies (Dallas, Philadelphia and New York Philharmonic), free concerts, blues and jazz concerts, dance and film festivals much less the sheer beauty of the Rocky Mountains will draw you back again and again to the mountains.

Mark Horowitz, Nance Horowitz purchased this condo in 2012

Why Mark Horowitz, Nance Horowitz chose Silverthorne

We have vacationed in Summit County over the last few years, and dreamed of having our own place, that reflected our environmental and aesthetic values with attention to detail in design. We found it in the Watch Hill condo complex. We have re-decorated and remodeled the condo and would love to share this comfortable retreat with you.

What makes this condo unique

Watching distant storms roll over the mountain peaks is one of life's pleasure. We love the warmth and coziness of this place in the winter and the cool mountain breezes on the summer nights--no need for air conditioning in the mountains! This is a quiet place just about as far away from the noise of I70 as any in Wildernest. Think: the only sound you hear is the breeze.

Lovely view, well appointed condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Mount Maison. The unit is located on a corner so the views of the mountains were lovely and it also provided an abundance of natural light. The property is well cared for and the owners have thought of every convenience imaginable to make our stay comfortable. Mark andNance were extremely nice to work with.

Well equipped condo with great views

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the quiet, second story, end unit condo with great views. The rooms and the kitchen were clean and well equipped. We grilled tasty suppers on the covered balcony and hiked the nearby trail to Lily Pad Lake. We recommend it.

Wonderful location and comfortable property!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 people stayed at the condos for 4 days. The unit is at the end of complex and it is very quiet! The condos has everything we need from bedding, cooking, and laundry! The unit is now nice and charming! The location is awesome as well! We visited Rocky Mountain National Park when we stayed there. The mountain area is beautiful, and offer many fun activities like mountain biking and rafting! We had great time when we stayed there! Thanks for the owner for preparing so many utensils in the kitchen and giving clear instructions on the driving direction and other items!
