Wonderful property with great ski in/ski out access
Indoor parking, gas fireplace, easy lift access, walk to town
Great place, perfect for ski in/out, would go back any time.
The owner was very helpful with any questions and the place was amazing. Great condo if you're looking for ski in/out and not too far from downtown.
Thanks Patrick! Hope you had a great vaca.
Wonderful unit at Riverbend Lodge
Wonderful unit located on 2nd floor. Super nice and spacious, plenty of space to spread out and relax at end of the day. Nicely maintained and everything you could want. Nice that it is near the elevator, stairs and hot-tub.
And of course the absolute closest complex to the lift of ANY unit in Breck.
see you next year
Ski in Ski out - and you can actually do this! Amazing condo!
Owner was very kind and responsive. Great early season skiing in Breck! Ski in Ski out! 50 feet from Snowflake Lift - direct access to Peak8 and 9. Very close to a Vail Resorts lift ticket office with 4 ticket windows (and never a line - unlike Keystone). Also right next to Charter Sports, an amazing local rental shop with a kind, knowledgeable staff. 100 feet from access to the Yellow and Black Bus routes (access to all of Breckenridge, and surrounding cities like Dillon/Silverthorne/Frisco, etc). You can also walk downtown. The unit was absolutely incredible. Stunning vistas, plenty of sun during the day. Tons of space, TV's in all three rooms. Board games. Xbox. You name it, they've got it! There are two hot tubs, one inside and one outside, a steam room with controllable temperature (and it gets hot if you want it to, unlike just about every other steam room), also a beautiful sauna that also has controllable temperature. There is a small workout area too. Indoor parking, with luggage carts and elevators for easy access. This condo is very close to the elevator and therefore, the most conveniently located unit in the most conveniently located complex.
IF (because it's very popular) this particular unit is available. Book it. You won't be disappointed!
Very nice accommodations
Overall experience was great. Owner was very responsive and actually contacted me before the trip to be sure we were all set. Accommodations were very nice and very close to downtown Breck.
Nice condo, good location, bad management
July 4th weekend
We got to the condo after picking up the keys from Pinnacle Management and the keys did not work. We called and waited for 45 minutes for the person to bring working keys. The VRBO listing advertised 3 DirecTVs in the condo and the only DirecTV was in the living room which did not work for the entire 5 days.
2 different management companies for Riverbend could not get it working after several attempts. The 2 other TV's in the 2 bedrooms were not DirecTV but some poor excuse for cable. We emailed the owner who was not made aware of the situation. He refunded 20% of the original 6 night total, even though we had arranged with Pinnacle well in advance of our arrival date to stay 5 nights. Management had not informed him of the 5 instead of 6 night stay either.
Even WITH the partial refund we still ended up paying for more than 5 nights.
There WAS a photo on the VRBO listing showing a false exterior view of the condo with a caption that claimed that the windows were the owner's living room windows with views of slopes and mountains. It was not their condo's windows which overlook the driveway entrance and 4 O'Clock Road. They have since changed that caption that now reads Tyra Riverbend, but the photo is still there.
Sloppy advertising, sloppy and careless management.
Our building uses magnetic key cards which can occasionally be demagnetized when placed next to magnets (ie, computer hd's and cellphones). Pinnacle Lodging is a great management company. Unfortunately the keys were needed after hours which of course takes additional time for the staff to arrive with new keys. Tyra Riverbend will be upgrading their lock system to keypad locks this fall.
We did and do apologize for the inconvenience of having the cable tv unavailable but as with anything electronic, it may malfunction without warning or delinquencies of our own. The maintenance staff and cable technicians were there almost every day troubleshooting and it was finally discovered that the issue was with the cabling behind the walls which was fixed.
Our refund policy is 30 days notice for any changes to stay. The changes were made with less than 2 weeks to reduce the stay by 1 night over the 4th of July weekend. The guests comments with regards to the refund are incorrect, we actually refunded MORE than one nights stay, despite our 30 day no refund policy--the guests received a $300 credit which is 27%. As a result the guests actually paid less than 5 nights because of the $300 credit. After further conversation we attempted to work with the guests by offering an additional $100 (for a total of $400), which they declined, demanding a 50% refund for the cable TV malfunction (Netflix and other formats were still operational). It is the property manager's policy to refund up to one night due to similar inconveniences. We felt that we went above and beyond this and tried to do our best to come to a satisfactory resolution.
The photo that the guest mentioned is a correct photo of our master bedroom window and balcony (in the top left corner). It may be difficult to recognize which unit is ours. The intention of the photo is also to give one an idea of the buildings (there are two buildings that make up Tyra Riverbend) and surroundings. The photo is taken from the street and the driveway to the building can be slightly seen in the photo on the left.
It's unfortunate that the cable service was inoperable during their stay and that they based their 50% refund on its availability which seemed to us as unreasonable. I hope the guests were still able to enjoy the Rockies and all of the amenities offered by the beautiful town of Breckenridge over the 4th of July.
