About the property

Spectacular In Any Season, Dramatic Lake And Mountain Views

This 5-bedroom estate is spectacular in any season! Dramatic mountain views frame lake Dillon across the street. Walk two blocks to the marina, stroll a couple blocks to downtown, cath the free concerts in the amphitheater, or hop the nearby bus to 4 ski resorts (Breckenridge, Keystone, Copper, Arapaho Basin, with Vail just a short drive away). This unique home is extremely high end with extraordinary quality at every turn.

THIS LISTING IS FOR THE "PENTHOUSE" (top floor)) and "MIDDLE EARTH" (middle floor) and does not include the Studio or the Lower Lair at this time.

See below for a description of all floors. Please keep in mind when booking that one floor or unit may be rented and you might be able to rent only a subset of the house. Check with the Host!

======== THE PENTHOUSE =======

Step into the Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. The top floor is amazing: A grand entrance with slate and Brazilian Rosewood floors. An ultra-gourmet, fully-equipped kitchen with a massive granite counter and island, 6-burner stove and double oven to bring out your inner chef. The living room has a huge rock fireplace and massive flat screen TV, all overlooking the lake and mountains. A large deck with huge outdoor dining table and stainless steel gas grill for you outdoor cooks. The dining room table is a one-of-a-kind art piece cut from a giant hollow log. There is a fireplace and stereo and some toys for kids. The master bedroom, also with a lake view and fireplace, has WOW all over it with a master bath to die for: double-nozzle steam shower with side jets made for two (or six), Jacuzzi tub and walk in dressing room. The stone finishes are gorgeous. The second bedroom has two bunk beds and a trundle all of solid tree beams. Very cool. Park in the roomy garage and walk directly into floor-heated rooms that are oh-so-nice on snowy days. Access to hot tub and the Penthouse has a private laundry room. Sleeps 5 in beds and 2 more in fold-out couches with another long couch on the side. Can connect with 'Middle Earth' via inside stairway.

======== MIDDLE EARTH =======

Middle Earth (the middle floor) is for fun! It has its own entrance right by the hot tub. The Living room has a big screen TV with a media library, wet bar and comfy couches (one fold-out queen bed). The kitchen has all new stainless steel appliances, refrigerator, gas cook top, dishwasher, microwave oven, toaster oven, toaster, blender and coffee maker. It has the basic supplies to cook and serve. The master bedroom has a beautiful lake view, king bed, private bath, sitting area, and dressing room with a laundry (washer/dryer). The guest room also has a lake view, with a queen bed. The multi-purpose sun room doubles as a game room (Foosball, Karaoke machine and toys for kids), dining area and a third bedroom with a futon couch that folds out to a double bed, and a single bunk bed with stairs for easy climbing, plus a long couch that could sleep one more. Sleeps 9 on beds plus 1 more on a long couch and there's a fold-out futon available for 11 total. Middle comes with one indoor garage space, with plenty of parking outside as well, and a hot tub with seating and a gas grill. Middle Earth can adjoin inside to the 'Penthouse' upstairs. See the floor plan to see how it lays out! You can go to VRBO number 515151 if you want to rent only Middle Earth.

======== ADDING THE STUDIO =======

I am sorry but the Studio apartment is booked long term at the moment. Prices reflect only what is available.

======== ADDING THE LOWER LAIR =======

I am sorry but the Lower Lair is now only available for long term rentals beginning August 17, 2015. Prices reflect only what is available.


Cleaning fee for both floors: $250.

Check-in at 4:00 pm. Check-out at 10:00 am. Call if you need something else and we will try to accommodate.

Laundries on top and middle floors, hot tub, 3 garage spaces and a lot of parking in a long driveway.


Summer and Winter activities are nearby, with plenty to choose from.


Downhill skiing and snowboarding at Keystone is a mere 10 minutes away; Copper Mountain, Breckenridge, A-Basin and Loveland are very close, and Vail is about a half hour. Cross country trails are available at Keystone, Breckenridge, and on the Frisco Peninsula. There is something for everyone, even those who don't ski or snowboard, with snow shoeing, ice skating, a movie theater, live community theater, bowling, concerts, excellent restaurants and plenty of shopping nearby.

Free bus service on the Summit Stage is a short walk away, with frequent service to Keystone, Copper Mountain, Breckenridge, A-Basin, Frisco and the Silverthorne Outlets.


In the summer, my favorite thing is to grab bikes from the garage, start on the bike path right at the driveway, bike around the lake to Frisco, have breakfast and take the water taxi, with bike, back to the Dillon Marina, hang out at the famous marina Tiki Bar, catch the evening free concert there at the amphitheater, then ride all of two blocks back to the house!

The Dillon Marina has boat rentals, Dillon Amphitheater (free sunset weekend concerts and nature presentations) and the Dillon Farmers Market (food, gifts and artwork every Friday) are a 5 minute walk away.

For fly fishing, this property is in between the Blue River, Snake River and Ten Mile River. It's great!

The bike path runs along the lower part of Gold Run Circle, and provides safe bike access to Frisco, Breckenridge, Keystone, and a trail over Vail Pass for the hardy. Prime hiking and walking trails abound, and summer special events such as art festivals, jazz festivals, beer and wine tasting festivals and popular concert series are frequent and nearby. The renowned National Repertory Orchestra performs its summer season in Breckenridge with occasional concerts at Keystone.

A ski bus is a short walk away. Walking to marina and downtown and amphitheater. Big stores and outlets nearby.

Why Eric chose Northwest

I bought this gorgeous home over Christmas 2013 and I still cannot decide if it's more wonderful in winter or summer! I come stay when I can, but happy to share this beauty with those who treat it like the elegant home it is.

What makes this estate unique

A wonderful estate close to the lake, downtown, marina and ski resorts. Can't be beat!

Wow! So great!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful place and the hosts were wonderful. It was very last minute as our original place fell through. I'm glad it did as this place was much nicer for less money and the hosts were so responsive.

Great trip!

  • 5 of 5

Every year we do a college reunion in the Rocky Mountains. This was our third trip and such a perfect location for a weekend we look forward to all year. We always ski so the 7 minute drive to Keystone was incredible. The house was large enough for our party yet still cozy and great for making meals together and watching football. The owners were wonderful to work with, too. I highly recommend this property.

Great property and location for skiing!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our spring break vacation skiing and staying in the Penthouse. It had all the luxury and amenities that we enjoy at home. Having rented many properties in over 20 years in this area it was one of our best choices. It's hard to tell on line with pictures how a property Really looks until you get there and this one was everything that was promised. Lu the owner was very good and responsive to work with and even addressed questions we had while traveling internationally. The location was great to ski multiple resorts within minutes. We would highly recommend staying at Lu's property and hope to stay there again.

Awesome Family Reunion with 2 families ages 1-87!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our 2 families to reunite for a full week! We had 18 people in our group starting from 1 years old and up to 87 years old! The 3 levels allowed us to have our space as well. The Top "Penthouse" level was by far the most luxurious and was the meeting place for everyone to hang out. We love to cook and was very impressed by the amenities in the penthouse kitchen. They had Pyrex bowls, pie pans, food processor, blender, you name it. Most Vacation rentals do not have all these amenities.

The Middle earth was a great level for the family with the young kids to stay at. The sun room makes for a great play room and they even had kids toys already there! The living room on this level also can be very dark if you shut the curtains and makes for great movie watching and napping.

The bottom level is great for an adult who wants to get away from all the craziness on the top 2 floors. The only thing I would make sure is that the person staying on that level is ok with climbing stairs as it has quite a few stairs to get up to the Penthouse level.

Overall this house was perfect for a large family. There is enough room for everyone to hang out and have fun on the penthouse level, but also allows for space for people to get away from their family too. :)

As far as location, it was great! In the 7 days we made multiple day trips driving all over Colorado. We also enjoyed just walking to the town of Dillon and the kids played at the playground overlooking the lake. Very cute town!

The owner of the home was very accessible and available to help us with anything we needed, which was great as well!
