“Great Stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Perfect location. We walked over to the slopes and the wagon really was nice. Shuttle service will take you anywhere that you want to go also. It was a great trip and we really enjoyed it. We stayed in a 2 bedroom/ 2 bathroom unit and it worked great for 2 couples.

I would never stay here again. Our condo (5960) smelled and was very dirty. The bathroom was disguisting, the kitchen pots/pans were old and scratched, the fireplace did not work and when was "fixed" it caused us to have headaches (leaking carbon monoxide), the sheets/towels had orange stains and dog hair on them, and the furniture was old and falling apart. Don't waste your money here. We paid about the same price for an amazing resort room at other places in Utah and Colorado. Oh, and by the way the 2 hot tubs are a joke--they were green and had a film on them. I told Keystone Property management but nothing was really done for us to make our stay better. They said they could not move us because they were completely booked! I didn't believe it one bit.

We stayed here 2 nights after Christmas. It exceeded our expectations! We had to wait to get into our room but it was easy after that. The 3 Bedroom had plenty of room for 5 adults and 4 kids under 9. Clean and nicely laid out. Loved the steam shower! Beautiful views of the mountain house base area and just a short walk over a pretty bridge to the lodge and lesson area. Under ground parking garage was easy and convenient. Storage lockers in garage for skis made it easy to deal with rental equipment. My brother already booked his next stay and we plan to make this a tradition!

Room Tip: Top floor has best views!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

We stayed for a week in Feb 2012 - had a 2BR condo on the 3rd floor overlooking Keystone Ski Resort. It was very clean, modern, and had plenty of space. We enjoyed having a full kitchen to cook meals during the week. They have ski lockers in the underground parking garage, so no need to haul your skis upstairs. REALLY enjoyed the hot tub outside on a few evenings - we were the only ones in there each time! To ski at Keystone you simply walk across a footbridge (right outside the parking garage), through the Keystone parking lot and you're right at one of the ski lifts. It took maybe 5 minutes total to walk it - super convenient. They have lockers at the lodge there too, in case you don't want to do the walk in your ski boots :-).

Definitely head to Dillon (10 min drive) to get groceries/liquor, supplies, etc. They have much larger supermarkets than Keystone. It's a 40 minute drive to Breckenridge where they have lots of great shopping and restaurants - all within walking distance up and down main street. Frisco, which is about 15 min from condo has a small Wal-Mart and more shopping if needed.

Overall, we loved our stay at the Hidden River Lodge! Would definitely rent again - it is a little bit out of the way (10 min off I-70), but the awesome views and feeling like you're truly getting away are totally worth it.

Room Tip: Ask ahead to make sure your view faces the ski resort, or you will be facing the road!

We rented Condo 5975 - view of the slopes, walking distance to the lifts, heated free parking. Had a nice fireplace, kitchen, two big bedrooms and baths. Super nice outdoor hot tub with friendly neighbors. 5 minutes from a large movie theater, short drive to Brek for cheap tacos at Rita's. Highly recommended! Keystone is a great mountain - lots of locals, the back mountains are quiet and magnificent. Like being in the wilderness but with fast ski lifts!

We were switched to Hidden River Lodge by the Key to the Rockies management company after our condominium at Tenderfoot Lodge was shrink wrapped for painting with us in it (see our review of Tenderfoot Lodge). Although the condominium in Hidden River Lodge is larger, there are a number of problems. First, the advertised dvd player does not work. This is a problem for us as we like to relax with a movie after a day of exploring. Second, the condo is so overstuffed with furniture it is hard to move around and the light in the second bedroom is completely blocked by a bunk bed pushed up within inches of the window. The sink area of the bathroom is not separated from the main bedroom so if one of us needs to get up during the night to take some medicine, the other is disturbed by the lights from the sink area. Overall, we have been very disappointed with our stay in Keystone which was orchestrated by a management company we consider to be incompetent. We love Colorado and have tried not to let the problems with the two condos get in the way but it has been a continuous struggle at these properties. All travelers should beware of the Key to the Rockies management company.

  • Liked — Views of Keystone ski runs and Snake river
  • Disliked — Overcrowed with furniture, poor condo design, poor management

My family and I stayed at the Hidden River Lodge during spring break March 2005. I rented the condo directly from the owner using VRBO. I chose this property because I knew it was close to the lifts, yet away from the congestion of the River Run area. I was not disappointed. The 1BR condo was beautifully decorated and could sleep up to six people. It was a reasonable walk to the lifts. There was also a shuttle than ran every 20 minutes. This was great at the end of the day. No one feels like lugging their skis home when they're tired.

The facilities were very new and up to date. There was no pool on site, but there are two outdoor hot tubs which directly face the slopes. This is a deed restricted property so all of the rental units face the slopes. There is heated, underground parking and ski lockers. The property abutts the Snake River and there is a nice walking path outside the condo. My kids loved the pool table that is in the loft part of the lobby. The price for the condo was very reasonable. I expect that I would have paid about $50 more a night had I rented directly from the Keystone resort.

Keystone is a great place to ski. It has plenty of beginner and intermediate slopes. There are also many challenging black slopes on the North peak and Outback. No one got bored during our 5 days of skiing. A-basin is a quick trip up the road. It is definately worth going there to see the beauty of this resort. I also recommend a trip through the Loveland pass. Just be careful if you normally reside at sea level, since there is definately an adjustment period needed for the altitude change.
