About the property

This is an oversized 2 bed / 2 bath. Much more space than similar units.

Check out the video tour.

This newly-renovated condo is 300 square feet bigger than most of the 2 bed / 2 bath units. It is on the top floor, with vaulted ceilings and a view of the slopes. It has a patio with views. Both bathrooms are were renovated in 2016. This is simply the nicest 2-bedroom in River Run.


Future Rates - Currently, the rates are set through 4/20/2019. If you are looking to book after that date, please reach out for a quote.

Negotiating Rates - I set rates that I feel are appropriate. I'm not likely to negotiate rates as I already set the rates at a fair level for this property and time of year. I just say this because I seem to get 2-3 offers per day below the quoted rates. I would rather save us both the time, and let you know that what you see is what you get.

Minimum Stay - We accept one-night stay requests for Sunday through Thursday nights. However, if a stay includes a Friday or Saturday night, we usually require a two-night minimum. The exception is if the property is only available for one night.

Parking - The unit is only guaranteed on garage spot. We haven't had issues parking a second car as long as it isn't a crazy-busy weekend, but please know that only one spot is guaranteed.

Unit features:

- 3 flat screen TVs

- Slope-facing views

- Vaulted ceilings

- New furniture

- The character of a ski-getaway

- 1,144 square feet (most comparable in River Run are 830 square feet)

If you are going to Keystone, River Run is the place to stay. Access to pools, hot tubs, restaurants, bars, and walking distance to the gondola.

Buffalo Lodge offers complimentary Wifi, underground garage parking, ski storage, laundry facilities and outdoor hot tubs on site.

Sleeping accommodations: King, Queen, Queen sofa sleeper

The main lobby of the building includes two pool tables for guests to use, plenty of seating, a large flat screen TV and gas fireplace. Guests of Buffalo Lodge also enjoy full use of The Dakota outdoor heated pool and hot tub area, open year round and located adjacent to Buffalo Lodge.

We have a 2-night minimum if the reservation includes a Friday or Saturday night.

About Cody Sudmeier

I grew up in Arvada, Colorado and learned to ski at Keystone. I always dreamed of having a second property in Keystone and I finally made that dream come true in October 2014.

Cody Sudmeier purchased this condo in 2014

Why Cody Sudmeier chose Keystone

Most River Run properties have (sub)standard finishes. If you look at pics from other properties, be sure to notice:

- Linoleum counters

- Old appliances

- Cheap furniture

- No character

This property has had $60K in renovation/upgrades. If you are already investing time/money in your vacation, make sure you choose a nice place to stay.

What makes this condo unique

When I was shopping for a condo in River Run, I was surprised at how many of the 2 bed / 2 bath units had really small living/dining areas. I finally found an oversized unit and it was worth the investment. Don't make the mistake of renting a condo that doesn't have enough space to enjoy company. Also, the standard finishes in River Run are rather cheap (think mid-90s finishes). This unit was upgraded with appliances, granite, tile, TVs, etc. I hope you enjoy it!

It's Fine

  • 3 of 5

The condo was fine -- just not exactly what I expected. From the pictures it looks quite light -- it is not. But it is roomy and in a good location. It is as pictured -- just much darker. You should know that parking is limited to one car. If you have a second car you need to park it in the Keystone overflow lot about 3 miles away. Fair enough -- but we were unable to get that information from him or his office. Not exactly a responsive group. Would have been nice if that had been disclosed in the book in the condo. Also we found in the morning that the Keurig didn't work. Luckily there is a Starbucks within walking distance, but it was just one more thing that wasn't quite right. All in all it was fine. But I felt that I paid a bit of a premium, and it didn't completely live up to my expectations.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us and for taking the time to write a review. For future renters, I would like to point out that this is the first 3-star review that the property has received in the 3+ years we've been renting it. I was puzzled with the comments on it being dark as you can clearly see where there are (and are not) windows. Keurigs can be finicky and we will certainly make sure it is fixed. With parking, that is determined by Keystone resorts. Every unit in every building gets one spot.

Fantastic condo close to gondola!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been more pleased with the condo at Keystone/Buffalo Lodge!

Well-appointed and clean...what else can you ask for? We will definitely be staying here again. One of the nicer condos we have stayed in at Keystone. Amenities were plenty! You do have to go down the road for the fitness center/spa, but most of your exercise comes directly from the slopes so no problem! Quick, walking access to the slopes and easy access to the ski lockers. Owner was great to work with and promptly answered all of our questions prior to our stay! Loved it!

Very Nice Condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here the first week in January of 2018. We had four adults and two kids. It was very spacious and nice. It was great to be on the top floor so that we didn't have to listen to people walking above us. We were able to see the Saturday night fireworks from the deck, which was wonderful! My kids enjoyed the pool and hot tubs, as these were a short walk away. This is also very close to the gondola, so it was a short walk to the slopes. We would stay here again and honestly had so much fun, we are already working on planning another trip soon!
