About Tom Major

We are long time (25 year) locals who came to Colorado to ski bum, but never wanted to leave. This is our 'dream' home that we built in 2001. We feel fortunate to have been able to purchase the property and build the home in such a beautiful and unique place and look forward to sharing our experience with guests.

Tom Major purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Tom Major chose Dillon

It was the only place we wanted to live in Summit County.

Clean, warm, cozy, and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

It was a pleasure to stay at the major residence. My boyfriend and I were in town for a charity hockey tournament in Copper Mountian and decided to stay a bit farther away, and I’m so happy we chose Tom and Erin’s place. 4 wheel drive is needed and that’s no joke, but if you are well prepared you will have no issues. The drive to the house is beautiful!! The apparent was nice and warm when we arrived and super clean! They have a fully stocked kitchen which did come in handy. There is nothing I could possibly complain about, we loved the time spent there and can’t wait to make a trip back!

A Place Made For Us

  • 5 of 5

There are times when we like to stay slope side, but our preference is to stay at a place where we can get away and relax. Tom and Erin's apartment above their garage is the ideal location for us. It's a beautiful drive through the canyon to their home near the mountain town of Montezuma, Colorado, but it's still only 15 minutes to Keystone and 20 minutes to Arapaho Basin. Once there, we cooked our breakfasts and dinners and relaxed. The apartment itself is clean, comfortable, was stocked with everything we needed and is beautiful.

Great Location Away From It All!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the location, and the size of the rental was just perfect. Roomy, clean, fully stocked kitchen and a nice view of the surrounding mountains. Our dog enjoyed exploring the property and surrounding area. Close enough to Keystone (15 mins) and you have hiking right out your door. Tom and his wife were very responsive, will stay again.

super clean, well appointed, very comfortable

  • 4 of 5

My friend and I stayed a long weekend at the apartment. It was perhaps the cleanest VRBO I have ever stayed in. The decor is tasteful and interesting without being overwhelming. The furniture and other appointments are comfortable and added to our enjoyment - comfy couch and chairs for TV viewing, very comfortable bed with lovely sheets, generous bathroom with a great bathtub and shower. The sofa bed wasn't too comfy, but that's to be expected. We used the kitchen a ton and enjoyed eating our meals in the apartment. It was easy to find - Tom's directions were perfect. Only bummer for us was no deck to hang out on. We really enjoyed our time there! Thanks!

Great mountain experience

  • 5 of 5

The rental space was clean and had everything I needed. The location is convenient to Keystone and A-Basin, but make sure you have a 4WD vehicle to get there, as it's well past Montezuma and the roads may not be well plowed.
