We hope you enjoy our non-smoking mountain retreat as much as we do. Our mountain get-away is in the neighborhood of Wildernest in Silverthorne, CO nestled near the top of Buffalo Mountain. This locals neighborhood is quiet and peaceful but it is just a 15 minute drive to multiple ski resorts. Come and see what draws us all to the mountains. You will find hiking right outside your door and many activities to satisfy any adrenaline junky. After a day of fun and exploring return to the clubhouse to enjoy the pool, hot tub, and sauna. Upstairs in the clubhouse you will find ping-pong and foosball. End the evening wrapped in a blanket by the fireplace.
Our home is clean and spacious. The spiral staircase to the loft and sky lights give the space an airy feel. Our condo property is one of only three in the area with a pool and hot tub. If you love fly fishing, the award winning Blue River is at the base of Buffalo mountain and you will often see fly fishing in action during the summer. If you love shopping, there are many high end outlet malls at the base of Buffalo mountain as well.
SETTING THE STAGE:
If you are not from Colorado you may not know the lay of the land. Allow us to introduce you! Our home is located in Summit County most famously known for mountain towns that carry different names but are really more like sprawling suburbs. Silverthorne, Dillon, Keystone, and Frisco make up the largest geography. Breckenridge is located ten minutes South of Frisco. Vail is located twenty-five minutes West of Frisco over Vail Pass. If you would like to ski on multiple mountains Silverthorne, Dillon and Keystone are the best locations to rent. These lively towns are also packed with people, restaurants, pubs, and shopping.
WINTER RUNDOWN: There is a FREE Summit Stage local bus in Silverthorne that takes people to Keystone, Frisco, Breckenridge and Copper Mountain. It stops just outside our door. Of course you want come to the mountains in the winter! KEYSTONE 10 miles: Keystone is a popular resort with a charming ski town and wonderful little back bowls. It has a large terrain park and many twists and turns to its runs. COPPER 14 miles: Copper is a quiet family friendly mountain with fewer tourists. LOVELAND 14 miles: Loveland is often peppered with young families teaching their children how to ski or board. A-BASIN 15 miles: A-Basin is considered a locals mountain with snow boarders galore. It has a Rastafarian feel and a young crowd. BRECKENRIDGE 18 miles: Breckenridge is a classic resort. It has many long wide runs and is a long time tourist favorite. VAIL 33 miles: Vail is a posh resort tucked 25 minutes West of Summit County and home to the best back bowls anyone could every hope to ski or board. Vail village is a sprawling little town full of high end shopping, restaurants and pubs. BEAVER CREEK 45 miles: Beaver Creek is a charming posh resort another 15 minutes West of Vail. - If winter resorts don't suite your fancy, there is winter tubing, ice skating, or shopping minutes away. We love to hike in the winter so put on your boots and drive up Buffalo mountain two minutes to find many trail heads. There is also a charming trail that runs through the ravine right out our back doorstep!
SUMMER TIME: We love summer almost more than winter in Summit County. Dillon has a beautiful marina ten minutes away where you can go sailing and paddle boarding. You can also find yourself rafting down Colorado rivers but keep in mind this is best during June to mid August when the outside temperature is warmer. Don't forget to check out local festivals or shows especially on the Dillon Amphitheater. Many ski towns and resorts put on concerts during the summer. Hiking and mountain biking trails are everywhere! There is nothing like the smell of fresh pine in the summer!
We are excited to hear from you!
