“Friendly staff, nice ammenities”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2012

We've been coming to Swan Mountain resort for over 10 years now, since becoming owners of the "house" owned by the resort. In that time we have seen continued efforts to improve the resort experience for it's owners. They have 2 weekly gatherings at the club house we free appetizers and drinks (including beer and wine). The pool in the club house is quite nice as are both the indoor and outdoor hot tubs.

The staff is friendly and attentive. Any time we've had a minor issue (burned out bulb, broken kitchen utensil, etc) they have been very very prompt in replacing/repairing it with just a call.

it is nice being away from the crowds, cost and bustle of the resorts, but you're within a 45 min. drive of Vail, 15 min. of Copper Mountain and Breckenridge, and 5 min from Keystone.

This is also great for families--our kids love participating in and winning the daily trivia question, the "guess the jar" (guess how many fuzzy balls or jelly beans in a jar), the paper airplane contest, the coloring contests (everyone wins). They win free movie rentals and coffee mugs filled with candy. There is air hockey and fuse ball in the club house.

Some of the furniture is a bit dated in the "house" where we stay, but the condos seem to be more updated. Also, the televisions are still the old Tube TVs and really could stand updating soon, but based upon the history of the resort I think that will happen soon as they are always updating and improving each of the condos. They definitely earn their RSI gold rating.

Room Tip: The "house", when available, has it's own hot tub, sauna, 2 fire places, full size kit...

We have had the opportunity to come to Swan Mountain for the last few years in November and I have to say we love this place. We can't afford to ski and shop everyday so we spend quite a bit of time in the clubhouse. The pool is always clean and warm and we have a ton of fun playing foosball and air hockey. The staff is always sweet and helpful.

We were in Dillon from October 1-8. Our Colorado trip was to do lots of sights seeing and enjoy the colors of the Aspens. The location was great for doing our day trips. We were greeted by friendly staff and our 2 bedroom accommodations were wonderful. Swan Mountain is one of the best stocked units we have ever stayed in. Their attention to detail did not go unnoticed. We did not have a chance to use the pool or hot tubs but enjoyed our home away from home at the end of each day.

Room Tip: We loved being on the top floor with the open ceiling.

An excellent timeshare and also nightly rental establishment. We had a two bedroom with loft, which included three bathrooms, fully stocked kitchen, washer and dryer and nice covered sun deck. The indoor pool is immaculate, along with the indoor hot tub and an outside hot tub, both extremely clean and hot.

We splurged on a two bedroom unit, for two of us with the plan that we'd keep all of our motorcycle gear tidily out of the way in one of the rooms. We got a unit that was almost the size of our house!
Climbing the stairs to the third floor unit was sometimes challenging, at the altitude but worth it to get to such a wonderful home away from home. Reserved, covered parking was available close by. We enjoyed a cozy lounge with a fireplace, luxury kitchen with everything one could want, and a very comfortable bedroom. There was a whirlpool tub in our room. Upstairs was another bedroom plus a loft with futon. The loft also had a super comfy chair and ottoman, which made a super place to sit and read. We also had a balcony. The views were great.
We were unlucky with the weather - it rained/snowed for five of our seven days there, in early September. The washer dryer was extremely welcome.
The decoration and furnishings in our unit were immaculate. We even had fresh flowers on arrival, then a delivery of new flowers mid week.
The only negative that I can think of is that the wifi was not consistent. For a couple of days we had a strong signal but most of the time it was iffy. Even the hardwired computer in the community room seemed to struggle.
Fantastic location. Great motorcycle roads. Bicycle friendly community with bike paths everywhere.
If you stay here, you must visit the museums in Frisco and South Park City.

I was hoping to rent small condo or cabin in the mountains for two nights and lucked into the rental at Swan Mountain Resort. Very small complex of condos', well groomed and maintained units. The previous reviews were very negative regarding the furnishings but my two bedroom was recently refurbished. Large fireplace, living room, kitchen, two bath and two bedrooms (kingsize and 2 twins). The kitchen was well stocked, pans pots dishes, coffee, toaster, micro-wave. The bathrooms were small, as well as the bedrooms but we were happy with the unit,. Our condo was a lower unit but we had large number of windows and sliding glass doors which gave plenty of light.

My husband and I can't wait to stay at this place again next year. The 2 bedroom with a loft was HUGE! Also with having 3 FULL baths you could easily sleep 6 Adults and some kids. When we stay at timeshares we always cook. They had everything you could think of for cooking, lots of pots and pans, a wide variety of utensils, hand mixer and even a popcorn maker. The fire place worked great, putting out lot of heat and keeping the place very warm. The staff is great and they have fun daily games for small prizes for adults and children. The pool is warm, big and great for getting some laps in. There are two hot tubs, one out side and inside, both awesome to relax in after a long day on the mountain. The place is easy to find and right near Keystone, but not far if you want to visit Breckenridge, Abasin or even Beaver Creek and Vail. I would highly recommend this place. I would also recommend bringing food and cooking, however there are many places to eat in the town of Dillon which is about about a 10 min drive from the resort.
