About the property

4 Br/5 Ba Gorgeous Log Home in Keystone, CO.

This gorgeous log beam home is located on the private and prestigious Keystone River Golf Course, 8th fairway. In the winter time, the fairway doubles as the Keystone Nordic ski trail. You can put on your cross-country skis or snowshoes and walk right out the back door to the extensive Keystone Nordic trail system.

The large windows in the two-story high living room provide amazing natural light and views to the fairway and mountains beyond. With the wet bar located in the living room, you won't have to go far for refreshments. The granite and stainless steel kitchen is fully stocked with all of the amenities you'd expect from a home like this, as well as a formal dining area that sits up to 8 people.

The main floor features a beautifully appointed king master suite with fireplace, walk-out patio deck with private hot tub, five piece bath with jacuzzi tub and oversized walkin closet. On the second floor, two bedrooms have queen beds with en suite bathrooms. The fourth bedroom has bunk beds and a pullout trundle daybed sleeping four people comfortably. All bedrooms are equipped with flat screen televisions, en suite bathrooms and large closets.

Outside you will find a huge redwood deck with a private hot tub to relax after a long day on the golf course or ski slope. Or if you prefer more activity, the cross country ski trails and/or bike trails right out the door will take you right into the heart of Keystone Village.

The two car garage is heated. The driveway allows for another 2 to 3 vehicles as well.

The home is stocked with tons of movies for adults and children, boardgames and novels for your enjoyment.

About Brian and Tamara Smith

We are Colorado golfers/skiers who appreciate luxury travel! When we take the time, money and energy to arrange a vacation, we expect nothing but the best. If you are the same, you will not be disappointed with this home!

Brian and Tamara Smith purchased this house in 2013

Why Brian and Tamara Smith chose Keystone

We fell in love with the large wood beams and 'mountain' feel of this home, combined with pure luxury! And the pristine setting on the 8th fairway sealed the deal. The peacefulness of this property allows us to fully relax and enjoy quality family time with our three children.

What makes this house unique

The Keystone Nordic Center with cross country skiing, tubing, etc is right out the back door. The cross country Nordic trail goes along the border of the property. The property is peaceful and serene, but with plenty of activity options if so desired.

Very clean, well-furnished, and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

What an absolutely wonderful stay! My family traveled from Virginia, NC, and Florida to gather in Colorado and the home on Wapiti Way was perfect. It was very comfortable for 8 adults and a toddler and furnished with everything we needed. The deck overlooking the golf course provided privacy and beautiful views of the mountains. We enjoyed the hot tub in the evenings and coffee on the deck in the morning. The location midway between Keystone and Dillon allow for excursions that were not far away. We also enjoyed Windy Point on Lake Dillon. When we had a question Brian got in touch with us right away. All and all a perfect vacation. Thank you and we highly recommend this home.

Beautiful Home and Location

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from fantastic stay at Brian and Tamara's home! Tamara was great to work with in booking the rental and everything was set up perfectly for our group. The home is well decorated, clean, spacious and comfortable. The outdoor patio was our group's nightly dinner spot and highlight of the home. The views from the patio were beautiful! Having a bathroom for each bedroom was also an added bonus. Everyone loved the home and loved the location. Excellent stay, we hope to be back next year!

Fun Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our adult family of 7 enjoyed a delightful week in Brian and Tamara's beautiful home. The space, décor and amenities made our stay perfect and fit our lifestyle. Because we are all huge foodies, we stopped at Sprouts on the way up from DIA and took turns cooking all our meals. City Market in Dillon, only 5 minutes away also served as an excellent grocer for supplemental ingredients. The generously equipped kitchen and outdoor grill allowed us to pull it off successfully. Our activities included golf, a 10K trail run in Breckenridge on July 4th, hike up Mt. Massive and Mohawk Lake along with neighborhood trails, bike ride to Dillon for farmer's market, shopping at outlet mall, Breckenridge and Vail plus visiting friends and family in Leadville and Denver. We prefer the relaxing, slow paced atmosphere of Elk Run for home base and ventured out from there. The large outdoor deck with table seating for 8 and hot tub provided a wonderful environment for evening chillin with the family. Our picture gallery captured the beautiful scenery and memorable family moments. As a VRBO owner ourselves with high standards for our property, this Keystone home met all our expectations. In addition, Brian and Tamara were quick to respond to every one of our inquiries. Highly recommend staying here in the summer and I imagine a good location for skiing the summit without all the heavy traffic of Breck.

Wonderful Home in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Ideal location and fantastic amenities in one incredible home.


Four of us (two couples) made the most of our ride from Denver stopping at Red Rocks

Amphitheater, Georgetown, and a trek up to Mt. Evans.

Needless to say, we were glad to get to our mountain retreat.

Next two days we spent visiting Keystone, Dillon, Frisco, Breckinridge and Vail.

It was so convenient to have this mountain home as our home base.

The home has a well equipped kitchen which opens into the dining area and a large

open living room.

Four bedrooms each with private bathrooms plus a powder room made for

comfortable accommodations.

The rustic log beam structure and mountain motif are nicely appointed.

The house is very clean and well maintained.

The mountain views from the large back deck and hot tub are beautiful.

The owners were very responsive to all of our needs.

Thanks for a great home away from home, we will definitely be back.
