Ski Tip Ranch, River Meadows Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome (no one above or below you) in Keystone. Pull into your own garage!

Very quiet: No one above, below or behind, with sound insulated double side walls. With over 1700 sq. ft of living space and your own heated garage, this townhome is beautifully decorated in mountain décor so you can relax and enjoy the incredible mountain views from every room. There are huge windows in the living room from which you look directly at pine trees and feel like you’re camping out! The pines are so refreshing with their scent, and are every color of green you can imagine! From the porch you can enjoy the sound of the stream just steps away.

There is a gas fireplace in the living room, and a high def. flat screen TV and DVD player for watching your favorite movies. The bluetooth soundbar plays music from your devise wirelessly for the ultimate in relaxation. The huge windows and vaulted ceiling make for a peaceful, spacious setting. There is free WiFi and HD Comcast cable TV service.

The dining room table easily seats 8, with three bar stools at the kitchen bar. The kitchen has been updated with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. You have all you need to cook a meal or just bake a pizza. Or grill out a steak on the back porch! Also on the main floor is a half bath.

Many ski condos have stairs everywhere, such that to unload groceries into the kitchen, you must climb stairs with your bags. With our town home, you pull into your own garage, and the kitchen is just steps away on the main floor. So easy. And to go run an errand, you get to go out to your warm car in the heated garage. Makes those errands so much easier!

Upstairs, the master bedroom looks out the back onto the pine forest. You can hear the stream from the king sized bed or the window seat. There is a large closet and master bath with double sinks and a jetted tub, and separate shower. You have your own flat screen TV for catching the news before you fall asleep.

Also upstairs, the second and third bedrooms look out onto Wolf Rock and share a full bath off the hallway. One has a new queen sized bed, and the other has a new queen bed with a single twin loft bed. Both have flat screen TVs, dressers, and huge closets.

The living room has a sofa sleeper that can sleep 2.

There is a washer and dryer upstairs for your convenience.

Outside, you can enjoy the wonderful fresh smell of pine trees as you sit on the porch and listen to the stream. The porch faces south so you have warm sunshine most days, even in winter. Or go take a little hike back in the forest and you’ll find an even bigger stream and plenty of places to take a picnic lunch. This townhome is in a beautiful and quiet location where you don’t have to listen to road noise.

There is a beautiful, large new in ground hot tub in Ski Tip Ranch for you to use across the street. There are bathrooms/changing rooms there also with towels provided. You also have free keyed access to the pool and hot tubs in the Dakota Lodge in River Run.

The historic Ski Tip Lodge is a one minute walk for you to enjoy a five star dining experience that draws people from all over the country. It was included in the top 100 US restaurants this year by Open Table.

During ski season, choose from two free resort shuttle stops where the shuttle bus picks up every 20 minutes to take you directly to the lifts, or you can walk the half mile yourself for skiing or shopping or getting something to eat in one of the great restaurants in River Run, the newest village of Keystone resort.

The shuttle stops are on both sides of condo. One stop has shuttle stops at 2,22 and 42 past each hour. The other side has shuttle stops at 9, 29 and 49 past each hour. Very convenient! And extremely reliable. During off season or after normal hours, the shuttle comes when you call them. So easy.

If you find a comparable rental for a lesser rate, please let me know, and we will beat their price.

***If you are considering buying a Summit County vacation home, I am a Realtor, and have done a lot of research in this market. I would be happy to help you find the right place to buy, and can help you get started renting your place to others.

Just send me an email through this VRBO page, and I will get back with you quickly via phone or email.

About Peggy Taylor

We are newly empty nesters who have skied and hiked Summit county for years. We love being among the pine trees in the Rocky Mountains, so when we found this town home, we were so thrilled! Even when you're inside, the huge windows give you a sense of being among nature, with the peace that goes with it. We love to hear the stream as we fall asleep at night, and we love to explore in the woods behind the townhome.

Having a townhome with a pull in garage, and an easy unload is so nice. No stairs just to get to the kitchen! Many ski condos have flights of stairs just to get to the main level.

And having the 3 bedrooms upstairs gives everyone the space they need if they're an early to bed, early to rise, or a late sleeper. The porch is nice and big, and faces south so you can enjoy the Colorado sunshine and crisp air almost year round.

Peggy Taylor purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Peggy Taylor chose Keystone

Ski Tip Ranch is an upscale community that is close enough to the lifts to be handy, yet removed enough to be quiet. It is nestled into the pines, and is beautifully maintained. When searching for a townhome to buy, we chose this building as one of the best in Ski Tip, and when this townhome became available, we snatched it quickly!

What makes this townhome unique

We love looking out at a pine forest, not cars, people, traffic, noise, etc. And we feel our location is particularly quiet and peaceful... in one of two buildings we determined were GREAT locations in Ski Tip Ranch.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Everything was absolutely perfect! The location, the furnishings, the comfortable couches and beds, access to the hot tubs and the very clear instructions made this the best vacation rental ever. We used the Scrabble board, DVD player and the Summit County hiking guide. Very thoughtful touches! Even the weather was ideal with bright sunny skies and brilliant starlit nights. Thank you for following up...

Quiet, beautiful Rocky Mountain getaway

  • 5 of 5

Looking for the quiet, scenic and intimate lodging in Colorado, look no further than Ski-Tip lodge. This property is nestled in a scenic, forested area in Keystone Ski Resort. The 3 bedroom townhome is a perfect family place where you can be at home away from home in the mountains. Kids can explore the tree lined creek and parents can stroll the various walking paths in the Keystone area. We truly enjoyed our time relaxing, reconnecting and having fun hiking and exploring the mountains with our family. We also had fun white water rafting in Beuna Vista and 4 wheeling in Mountezuma. Easy access to all your family vacation desires! Book today.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review! Just wanted to clarify for future renters that our neighborhood is called Ski Tip Ranch. Ski Tip Lodge is in the middle of our neighborhood, and was a stagecoach stop decades ago. It has been remodeled into a beautiful five star restaurant, and bed & breakfast. Wonderful place for a special occasion dinner!

Simply perfect.

  • 4 of 5

This home was everything we expected. It was spacious, inviting and perfect for our family ski vacation. It was very close to the Keystone Ski Resort. We loved the large dining table for all to and then sit and play games. Its the ground floor so the kids played in the snow everyday upon returning from activities and the adults watched from the large windows while cozy in the warm interior. Peggy was wonderful and helpful with any questions or requests we had. Would love to go back next season. Plenty of linens the home was clean and the kitchen was well stocked. We skied, tubed, rode snow mobiles, enjoyed the hot tub and played in the snow. The Ski Resort's fireplaces were wonderful the mountain was wonderful for an intermediate skier such as myself. My family and I loved it. The shuttle was close by but I would not say this is walking distance to the lifts.

Owner's Response: We do walk into River Run all the time, but then, we love to walk! When in ski gear, we take the shuttle because it is so easy and reliable.

Wonderful vacation home for all 9 of my family members.

  • 5 of 5

Nicely decorated, well-maintained, and updated townhome just down the road from River Run at Keystone Ski Resort. Slept all nine of us comfortably in 3 bedrooms and a pull out sofa sleeper. Great hot tub access just across the street to relax after a hard day of skiing.

Quiet area/ backyard/street after a busy day at the mountain. Very refreshing!

Warm and Cozy Townhouse with Convenient Summit County Location

  • 5 of 5

This property is very well maintained and the owners have done a wonderful job on furniture, beds and amenities. Great location and very convenient to Keystone, A-Basin and close to other Summit County resorts Breckenridge and Copper. The property is very private and backs to wilderness. Our family of 5 was very comfortable at this property and would recommend to anyone because it is a well appointed and maintained rental and the owner is very responsive and interested in helping you. Keep up the great work!

During ski season, there is a free ski shuttle that arrives at Ski Tip at 2, 22 and 42 past each hour from 8-5. There is another shuttle stop very close by that arrives at 8, 28 and 48 past the hour if that works better. After the daytime hours or during non-ski season, the free shuttle is on call to serve you as needed. It takes you anywhere in Keystone. There are small grocers in Keystone, and a big City Market just 10 minutes away in Dillon. Also in Dillon/Silverthorne is a Target, Sports Authority, Bed, Bath and Beyond, Smash Burger, Noodles, Chipotle, Qdoba, and all the fast food places. Keystone has local restaurants within walking distance (or take the shuttle) like Kickapoo (general menu, our favorite), Luigi's pasta, a pizza place, Wolf Rock Steak House, a local coffee shop called Inxpot, a Starbucks, frozen yogurt, cookies, etc. And those are all in River Run. There are more restaurants all around Keystone and on the mountain for you to enjoy!
