The Ponds at Blue River Townhome Rental Photos and Description

3 BR/3.5 Ba Sleeps 8 En Suite Bedding K,Q,D + T NEW FURNITURE, BEDDING!

FIRST snows have come, think ahead! Book an early weekend getaway and $$AVE! PRIME ski days still available, but not for long. And as families meet over holidays, summer vacations RAPIDLY book up, don't delay. We have great group lodging for you with your own private hot tub and Million $$ views, not to mention a full bath for EVERY room plus one!

This is as close to home as you can get with amazing access to all your mountain fun

Kudos to all the lucky guests that jump on the bookings well in advance and get the spot they really want! We're getting requests for XMAS 2017, so don't put it off!

A condo that sleeps 8, with 4 bathrooms, a great kitchen/living/eating area with views along with private garage and hot tub is a great value! Compare with the average hotel room $147 x 4 rooms would be $591/ night w/out a cooking/gathering area, private hot tub, garage, laundry, walking trails and VIEW!

We are MINUTES from 7 world class ski areas, try them all!

Free shuttle for group flexibility. Hike, fish, walk, bike from front or back door!

Would you rather rent from a privately owned town home with an individual property manager minutes away? That's us with a PERSONAL touch!

Would you rather stay in a spacious, friendly neighborhood or row after row of high rise, dated, impersonal buildings? Check out our map! One little road surrounded by ponds, rivers, bike paths and SPACE!!! Rather look at mountain and pond views than into the building next door? Only 4 units per building gives you quiet, privacy and VIEWS!

No stairs to climb, no noisy neighbors overhead! Both end units don't even rent out, so it's peace and quiet, ahhhhh.

THIS is why we chose our little slice of heaven. Our guests agree that our condos are a cut above.

Enjoy MOUNTAIN top views reflected on the water/walk from back door to FREE skating. Rent paddle boards, bikes or kayaks and USE them 10 feet from out door! Be DISCRIMINATING!! OUR views are easy to see from just about any room, any chair! You don't have to go out to enjoy the bliss of your mountain retreat. CLOSE TO SO MUCH world class SKIING! No long lines of traffic (think Breck), and no long steep climbs up snow covered roads. We're just 2 miles off of I-70, yet quietly tucked away by North Pond with all the natural features you'd want. Steps from FREE SHUTTLE, that operates year round.

Lots of choices for multiple family members gives YOU maximum freedom in planning your day. Bring your bike and ride to coffee, hiking, shopping, HECK ride to VAIL!!!

THERE are SO many things I love about our bright and cozy place with views from every room. Your own PRIVATE and New HOT TUB steps from the back door! It's very private from neighbors. I think what you'll love is that it is well positioned, decorated and appointed for the avid outdoor enthusiast, OR the couch potato, chef, hot tubber and wine sipper!? Did I mention you are 2 miles from great local coffee as well as premium shopping outlets?! So even in the worst weather, (which is rare in sunny CO) there is SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE!!!! Free shuttle a block away, running to the ski areas , rec center, eateries and shopping. With the shuttle, you can have ultimate freedom. Cruise right in to your plowed driveway, warm GARAGE! FIRST FLOOR!!! (that's hard to find around here, so even folks who have trouble with stairs have a sleeper sofa and 1/2 bath on 1st floor)

We recently bought a new queen sofa sleeper, with temperpedic mattress, love seat, beds, comforters and dining room set and we are continually upgrading! New interior paint, new window! DR seating (8) plus counter.

Leave your skis on the rack, so they're ready for tomorrow! No schlepping equipment and groceries up flights of cold outdoor stairs, (we've all been there, right!?) No scraping ice/snow in AM!!!! Pull in, click the button and walk 10 feet to the fridge!

And fish, bike, hike, skate, x ctry ski, or snowshoe right from the garage, no 4 wheel drive required!

Beautiful, spacious townhome located on North Pond in Silverthorne. See for yourself!! Not all units in our area give you views of mountains AND WATER! Check out our map to see. You WON'T get tired of seeing the reflection of the mountains, or walking steps from the hot tub to abundant activities, INCLUDING the POND hockey tournament. BEST place to skate and WATCH! We ARE the closest 3 bedroom to the action!!!

Furnished in Colorado mountain style with all the comforts of home. Well appointed kitchen for all of your holiday/vacation entertaining needs.

Swim, kayak, paddle board out the back door, (or just enjoy watching from the cozy hot tub!)

Granite tile kitchen, Flat screen TV in Living Room, master and triple BR, FREE WiFi, HUGE tub in master bath with spectacular mountain views, full washer/dryer and 1 car garage w/ opener. All bedrooms are private with their OWN full baths. WEDDING attendees LOVE our townhouse, EVERYONE can get ready at the same time w/ a bath to spare! Iron on premises to touch up your dress!

Just 10 minutes to Loveland,15 to Keystone and Copper, 20 to Arapahoe Basin, 25 minutes to Breckenridge. Only 30 minutes to Vail, 45 to Beavercreek. Plentiful dining options within minutes. Easy grocery shopping, natural foods store AND fine dining close by. New Whole Foods Market.

Free tubing/sledding and x ctry skiing at the Raven Golf Course across the st. Minutes to the Factory Outlets. Walk to NEW $6 million performing arts center, (coming soon)

In summer enjoy golf just across Blue River Parkway, and outstanding fly FISHing on the Blue River or the pond out back. Many types of trout. We nicknamed the largest trout Hal! You can view him from the bridge. The Summit County Recreation Path stretches for 55+ miles for cycling, etc.. AGAIN, it's RIGHT THERE! All kinds of boat rentals on DILLON reservoir!

Great wildlife viewing. As you can see from the pictures, a full bull moose wandering by.

For bird lovers, you'll have fun watching the mother osprey in the nest across the pond bring fish back to her chicks. Eagles viewable along Rt 9.

In February, from the hot tub, you have a front row seat for the Colorado State Pond Hockey Championships. All winter the city maintains half the pond for skating! Fantastic Rec Center 2 miles away and on free shuttle line.

You'll come for winter recreation, you'll come back for 4 seasons of fun!

PLEASE WATCH THE VIDEO TO GET A BETTER FEEL FOR EXTERIOR, LANDSCAPING, NEIGHBORHOOD ETC... Our front porch and back patio are ample for sitting outside any time of day. I take pride in the upkeep of front garden as well as back native wildflower garden to give you color in both spots

About Cindy Smallwood

We (Cindy and G) lived in Colorado for six years early in our marriage, moved back to Ohio for family, jobs but vowed to get back out here someday. We love to ski, snowshoe, cycle, hike, kayak and look forward to fishing. And despite Ohio being our family home, we truly love all the activities the mountains have to offer.

Cindy Smallwood purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Cindy Smallwood chose Silverthorne

Having been in the market for a mountain home and rented around here for (YEARS!) we became very picky. The Ponds was the most desirable location, but we even narrowed it down to just a few units that had the most stellar view of water AND mountains. This one was it!

We love the feeling of being close to everything in the Summit area, yet having it quiet enough that you can feel like you're really getting away from it all. This spacious property gives everyone their own private baths, plus a powder room, with comfortable living areas as well. Having a large pond out back and the river and recreation path out front offers so much recreation at your fingertips. Mountain hikes are just over the neighborhood bridge!

What makes this townhome unique

We feel this particular town home has the best of everything! It has drop dead gorgeous views from all the main living areas including master bedroom and soaking tub! But it also backs up to a blue ribbon trout stream and miles of bikeway for incredible access! Of course, there are multiple world class ski resorts with in 10-35 minutes away! So much convenience. The neighborhood is so peaceful and friendly too!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you! The beds were very comfortable. We loved using the hot tub at night when it was snowing. We spent our days skiing Keystone, Copper and Breckinridge. We also enjoyed the shopping.

Keystone Opening Day!!!

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable property, all the right amenities and spotless. We just came back and I can't say enough about this property. Location is fantastic so close to the slopes of Keystone/ABasin/Breckenridge.The apartment is very modern, 3 bedrooms with plenty of room, private bath. Beautiful view's of the lake from the living room and a cozy a fireplace. We cooked most of our meals in the kitchen, it had all the equipment we needed plus more. Last but not least the jets of the superclean hot tub are the bomb. We will come back beginning of next year.

Owner's Response: Thanks Jason! It was a pleasure to have you and our neighbor even commented on how polite you all were. I've never seen the tourney but she took pictures, it sounds like a lot of fun. We've already booked the tourney slot for next year, (word is out that we are closest rental to the action!), but you are welcome back anytime! Cindy

Nice family holiday

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! There is a lot of sleeping space and bathrooms. The common space is comfortable and nice but limited for 6 adults.

We loved having the hot tub which was very clean!

The kitchen is quite well equipped! We cooked all of our dinners there and we were pleased with the "tools".

Nice location. I liked not having to drive up Wildernest road.

I'll come back

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying with us and your wonderful review! We agree that even though we seat 8 and sleep 8, our seating in our family room does not quite measure up. That's why we are juggling the seating along the east wall, adding additional seating. Hope you come back! Cindy (owner)

Wonderful condo!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five stayed here for a week in August. Beautiful views! The condo was clean, nicely decorated and the kitchen was well stocked for cooking meals. My boys were thrilled with the Apple TV:) The location was convenient to many activities! We visited Breckenridge and the Silverthorne recreation center and lake Dillon. My husband and boys loved fishing for trout in the pond right outside our back door! We were also able to hike within the neighborhood. Would definitely recommend this condo and we plan to return in the future.
