About the property

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! In the spring, summer and fall, 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 or anything into the kitchen, or anywhere for that matter, 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. When you get home, just pull right in to the heated garage with the remote control. Close the door to keep out the cold, and unload in the warmth. 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 brand new 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, and is Vail resorts #1 restaurant. Have extra guests? Ski Tip Lodge is also a bed and breakfast.

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 free resort shuttle stops at 3, 23 and 43 past each hour, 8-5 during regular ski season. Before and after the regular ski season, it is on call for you: 970-496-4200. Very convenient! And extremely reliable. So even 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.

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 Ski Tip Ranch, River Meadows

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...

There are more restaurants all around Keystone and on the mountain for you to enjoy!

Quiet, cozy with easy access to Keystone

  • 5 of 5

My family had an amazing trip to this property. We couldn't have been happier. Peggy was easy to coordinate with and the Property Management company was easily reachable. This property was very quiet. We didn't hear or even see anyone else in the block of townhouses. Facing the pines from the family room gave it a cabin-in-the-woods relaxing feeling. The heated garage was awesome so your gear can dry out over night. The quick drive or shuttle ride to River Run was incredibly convenient. Honestly, this townhouse had everything we needed. We'll definitely book again in the future.

Great location, views, and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We took our family for spring break vacation and stayed at this Ski Tip condo. Owners are great to work with and always available. View off the back living room is amazing! We ended up taking lessons and skiing during the week at A Basin, a short 10 minute drive. We enjoyed watching the NCAA playoffs on the big screen in the comfortable living room and the kitchen was well equipped as we did a lot of cooking and grilling.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for an entire month and had an awesome vacation. The property is cozy and well stocked with all the things you need. Mostly it is just a very comfortable home. There are huge windows that look out over the forest and a lovely fireplace with great furniture to sit and enjoy the view!! The shuttle is close and on time. We enjoyed the scenic walk to River Run and the Hot tub was great and close-by. Even in the winter we enjoyed using the grill and feeding the birds. Would definitely return!!

It doesn't get better than this!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at this condo and we just love it here! The layout of the place is spacious and comfortable. The furnishings and appliances are all high end. Anything you could ever need is, extra bedding, kitchen supplies, movies, books, etc. The best part is the location and the view! Backing up to the open forest with a stream out the back door truly makes for a magical get-away. We brought our snowshoes this time and enjoyed exploring in the open area surrounding the condo. A big thank you to the owners! We can't wait to go back!
