Overview

About the property

Beautiful 1-bed 1.5-bath in town with Queen bed & unusually comfy Queen sleeper

Beautiful and spacious 1st-floor, 1-bedroom, 1.5-bath condo centrally located in Silverthorne. Enjoy unobstructed views of the Blue River steps from the back patio! Queen bed in bedroom and supremely comfortable Queen sleeper (no bars) in living area provide plenty of room for 4 people. The bedroom has a full master bath and the 2nd bathroom has a toilet, sink, and washer & dryer. Hot tub, fireplace, free WIFI, Smart TV with streaming internet connection. A 10-20 minute drive to 4 major ski resorts: Copper, Keystone, A-Basin, and Loveland; and a 25-30 minute drive to Breckenridge and Vail.

Our home is wheelchair-friendly and is in a small, 36-unit complex. Recently redecorated with upscale furnishings. When you see the high ceilings, views, and quality finishes, you will know this is no ordinary condo!

Details:

Our place is beautifully appointed and furnished, and it is in a newer, quiet, but friendly complex. There is a very comfortable queen bed in the bedroom, and a top-line, best-in-the business leather sofabed in the living room. This queen sleeper is so comfortable (it has newer technology with no bars) that you would feel good having your mother sleep in it.

In the colder months, enjoy the radiant heat floors (carpet or Italian tile) and gas fireplace. There is a beautiful hot tub in a building nearby, about 60 steps from our door. We have a flat-screen Smart TV with Blue Ray DVD player, Comcast cable TV, and internet for streaming movies; a small audio system that allows you to play music via Bluetooth (so it works with both Apple and Android devices), and we have free WIFI for your personal devices.

This 900-square foot condo feels roomy with the high ceilings and a wide hallway. The quality construction of the 2-story building means you will rarely if ever hear your upstairs neighbors. The kitchen is fully equipped with modern stainless appliances as well as high-quality minor appliances (e.g., toaster oven, coffee maker and blender).

This condo is wheelchair-friendly, but not fully accessible. There is a handicap parking space right in front; there are no steps or stairs between the parking lot and front door; the front door threshold is low, and all exterior and interior doors are 33 inches wide (wide enough for standard wheelchair), including bathroom doors. However, the tub with shower is standard (not roll-in), and counters are all typical height (~30'). There is an elevator available to get to the second floor hot tub.

Location: We are literally on the banks of the Blue River, but very close to shopping, the outlet center, Lake Dillon, and great restaurants. Less than one mile from I-70. Gold Medal fishing is just a few steps from the back patio.

Skiing: It is a 10-20 minute drive from our parking lot to 4 ski resorts: Copper, Keystone, A-Basin, and Loveland; and a 25-30 minute drive to Breckenridge and Vail. You can even catch the FREE shuttle just outside the condo complex to all Summit County resorts (not Vail).

There are many Forest Service trails within a 5-20 minute drive for hiking, mountain biking, and backcountry skiing. Whitewater kayaking and rafting are available on the Blue River and flatwater kayaking and sailing is available at Lake Dillon. Great fishing everywhere, including right out the back door!

About Jeanette Haegele

My husband Albert and I feel very fortunate that we can travel to the extent that we do. We like to mix our travels with outdoor fun, so we have enjoyed activities such as European bicycle trips; a whitewater kayak adventure in Costa Rica; sailing and snorkeling in the Grenadines; and we like to ski, camp, hike, bike, and whitewater kayak in our beautiful state of Colorado. We are quiet but fairly social people. We appreciate people with integrity and humor, and are ready to meet new friends along the way.

Jeanette Haegele purchased this condo in 2013

Why Jeanette Haegele chose Willow Grove

We recently purchased our condominium in Silverthorne, CO that is in a fantastic location---on the banks of the Blue River but centrally located in town---close to several major ski resorts and lots of trails, and beautiful Dillon Lake. Now we wish to share this beautiful place with others.

What makes this condo unique

Sitting on the patio or living area, listening to the Blue River is something we will never tire of! We also were so impressed with the quality of the construction: even though we are on the ground floor, this building is so well-built that we rarely hear our neighbors, and never hear the nearby road (Highway 9). We also like the spacious feel of the high ceilings and wide hallway. There are many condos in this area but few are right on the River; we honor that by avoiding the typical ski chalet decor and instead filled the condo with art that depicts river scenes and water creatures...

Modern, immaculately maintained and great location.

  • 5 of 5

The property was very well maintained, organized and comfortable. The owners thought of everything we may need so it felt like a home away from home. The Blue River was in the backyard where we sat on the adirondack chairs while enjoying a glass of wine. Convenient and close to shopping and restaurants with a walking path available. Would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful condo in a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a few nights for a little get-away. We enjoy fly fishing and we could not have been more happy with the location and access to the Blue River. The condo was in fantastic condition - very clean, comfortable, and just the right size. We enjoy cooking and had everything we needed to make some delicious meals. We would stay again!

A hotel room can't offer you the comfort and beauty this place can...

  • 5 of 5

First let me say the owner of this place has wonderful taste. I would hire her to decorate my mountain hideaway.

This is a cozy little apartment thats very clean and we'll maintained. Bathroom is modern and spacious. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils. Not that you need to cook, plenty of great places to eat nearby.

The highlight though is right outside the patio. The river and the two deck chairs sitting right next to it are a perfect spot to have a glass of wine with your significant other around sundown.

No, you're not in downtown Breckenridge, but I much prefer Silverthorne -- natural beauty and not nearly as touristy.

The only suggestion I have is if there are any movies or music you want to stream, download it to your laptop before hand. The internet is pretty slow and would so.etimes dropout. I do not think this is true owner's fault, that's pretty common when you live in the mountains.

Great and roomy place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Jeanette's place was perfect for my husband and I. It had plenty of room for us and our luggage. The 2 bathrooms was nice to have including a washer and dryer! We loved having easy and close access to the outdoor jacuzzi just a short walk away from the condo. Parking was also very convenient right in front of the condo, we never had trouble finding empty spots. Jeanette was a great host; she was very prompt with refunding the security deposit after checkout and she checked in on us via text while we were there to ensure all was well.

The only reason I'm not giving this place 5 stars is we like to cook on our snowboard trips and there were very limited pots (1 medium sized pot) which made it challenging. The place could use a couple more medium sized pots with lids as well as a new teapot!

Owner's Response: Thanks to my guests for suggesting that additional cookware would be appreciated. I strive to ensure my guests have a great experience, and upon receiving their recommendation, I immediately added a new medium pot and tea kettle to my cookware collection. I admit to being a little disappointed to receive my first sub-5 star review, but welcome their suggestions for improvement.
