About the property

4 bedroom, 4 bath (2 full, 2 half) - walking distance to Mesa Cortina trailhead

A luxury home in the middle of Summit County awaits you! Our gorgeously remodeled home sits atop Sky Pilot Drive, with nothing behind it but National Forest and a completely unobstructed view of Buffalo Mountain. Step across our property line and you will find yourself in the forest, just a few yards from the Mesa Cortina hiking trail. Although peaceful and secluded, the Lone Star Mountain Retreat is close enough to the heart of Summit County to enjoy the comforts of urban life. We are minutes from a multitude of summer and winter outdoor activities, both in the Silverthorne/Dillon area and in nearby Keystone, Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, and A-Basin. From downhill skiing at nearby world-renowned resorts to exploring the hundreds of miles of trails that wind through the Rockies, biking, boating, rafting, fishing, shopping and so much will find it all to be within easy reach from our home at the top of Mesa Cortina.

This home was fully remodeled in 2016 and features tray ceilings, hardwood floors throughout, a large stone wood burning fireplace, an open floor plan with an abundance of windows that provide spectacular views from all sides. The updated gourmet kitchen features granite counters, all new stainless appliances and cabinetry and is fully-stocked for meal preparation. In addition there is a large wrap-around deck equipped with a gas grill and outdoor seating for dining al fresco while taking in the beautiful views and regular wildlife sightings.

Bedrooms and bathrooms are equipped with luxury towels and linens to make you feel completely pampered during your stay.

The master bedroom suite is outfitted with a king-sized bed, a large closet, and a separate living area with TV and desk. It has its own remodeled bathroom and a deck view of Buffalo Mountain. The bottom floor features two separate bedrooms each with queen-sized beds and sitting areas with flat screen TVs. The fourth bedroom is our bunk room, with two sets of bunk beds that both kids and adults will find quite comfortable. The home can comfortably accommodate 10 people.

About Jennifer Heath

We are a Texas-based family with a love for Colorado and the outdoors. We chose Summit County for our home away from home, and selected the Lone Star Mountain Retreat because of its excellent location and spectacular views. The home has been completely renovated and appointed with everything you need to relax and retreat away from the everyday world. We look forward to your visit!

Beautiful, relaxing, and great host

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying here. It is a beautiful home, with trails in its backyard, a real wood fireplace, amazing views of copper, the lake, and buffalo mountain. Jennifer was so helpful with anything we needed. We had a hot water issue, but she was there for us and sent a plumber out to fix it right away. She always made it right. Highly recommended!!

Great Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The Lone Star Mountain Retreat is just that a Retreat! Gorgeous views, privacy and enough space for the whole family. This house also has one of the best equipped kitchens I've had at a VRBO, made it really easy to cook our family style meals for 8. You will not be disappointed in staying here!

Beautiful property in a breathtaking setting!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderfully relaxing time during the long weekend that we stayed. The home is on a hill backing to a National Forest, has breathtaking views in every direction and is perfectly updated with everything you need - even books and games are provided. Each bedroom has its own personality and the beds and bedding are very comfortable. There were only two of us but the home is very spacious and could easily accommodate a large group or family. Silverthorne is a lovely town with lots of shopping and restaurants. They also have a great library and community center with a pool and tennis courts. We visited the library this trip and hope to make use of the community center next time. It was a short trip to picturesque Breckenridge for more shopping and dining - the drive there and back was beautiful. I had to work some while I was there and service was great for phone and internet. Can't wait to make another trip!
