“Location and Staff Make Spinnaker A Fabulous Choice in Summit County”

Our recent stay at Spinnaker at Lake Dillon was wonderful! Spinnaker's location near EVERYTHING in Summit County, Colorado, is PERFECT! Spinnaker allows you to enjoy breathtaking views of BOTH Lake Dillon AND the majestic Colorado mountains! We have friends who own a townhome at one of the ski resorts in the county, and they came to visit us while we were at Spinnaker, and they could not say enough about how beautiful OUR VIEW was!!! The units are well appointed & well maintained. We love the indoor heated pool & jacuzzi! What really sets Spinnaker apart, though, is their STAFF! They are WONDERFUL to work with - so friendly, helpful and accommodating! We are vacationing there again at the end of September, and we cannot wait until we are "back home" at Spinnaker!

We just returned home from our 3rd stay at Spinnaker condos. We like to go for a week in August to escape the oppressive Oklahoma heat.

The reasons we keep staying at Spinnaker are location and price. The condos are across the street from Lake Dillon and the cycling/walking trails and a very short drive (or reasonable walk) to the grocery store. The views of Lake Dillon are unbeatable. Each August we have paid something like $1100 for one week's rental of a 2 bed/2 bath condo with a balcony overlooking the lake and private washer/dryer.

The interiors of the rented condos haven't been updated in a long time - formica counters, older appliances, older-looking furnishings. However, we think that is reflected in the price. This time, our condo refrigerator made a loud noise periodically but it cooled well.

There is an electric grill on the patio but we didn't use it since we didn't want to have to clean it after use.

One room has a king bed; the other has 2 twins. There is garage parking in the basement. Check-in is 4pm Friday and check-out is 10am the next Friday. Deb in the office is very helpful and great to work with.

We will continue to stay at Spinnaker.

We stayed at the Spinnaker for a week as a timeshare exchange. It is an older resort, and although it looks a little out-of-date, it is very homey and comfortable. It is conveniently located near I-70, with water sports, bike trails, and skiing close at hand. The resort is on the edge of Lake Dillon, and has a lake view from most units. It is in easy walking distance of 4 restaurants, a liquor store, bike rentals, and the lakeside amphitheater which was concerts and other activities in the summer. It has an indoor pool and sotrage room for bikes and skis.

The resort rooms have no air conditioning, which is understandable since daytime temperatures in the summer usually don't get too high, and it cools off at night. We were able to get cross ventilation in the evenings to cool off, although closing the shades to block out the bright morning light also blocked out the air. I'm an eastern girl used to my AC in the summer, so I wasn't comfortable at times. However, the bed was comfortable, the living room sofas comfortable, and there was even a recliner which my husband claimed as his for the week! There are extra decorative touches in the rooms that make it feel more like a personal rental than a timeshare. Our balcony had a gas grill and a new set of patio furniture--pub height table and chairs so you could see the lake over the balcony rail.

The unit was well furnished with soap, linens, dish and laundry detergent, toilet paper, etc. Although there were seasonings in the kitchen, no starter coffee or condiments were supplied, and no toiletries in the bathroom, except soap. The staff are very responsive and handled a maintenance request the same day.

The Spinnaker has much to recommend it if you are looking for a comfortable place to sleep after you've done a day's worth of outdoor activities. The resort had no in-house activities for guests. If you want a full-service, modern resort, look elsewhere.

This is a wonderfully maintained timeshare/condo resort with underground parking, an indoor heated pool, hot tub and sauna. The resort is located along Lake Dillon with miles of hiking/biking trails. The Dillon Amphitheatre is about a 3 min walk and the marina is about a 5 min walk. There are 2 shopping plazas nearby with restaurants, grocery store, liquor store and a movie theatre. Outlet malls, ski resorts, and tubing hills are a short distance away. There’s a free city bus one block from the resort that will take you to several ski resorts.

We arrived late but our key was in the lockbox so check-in was easy. Our unit faced the road rather than the lake but had a spectacular view of the mountains. There was no road noise.

Our 2-bedroom, 2-bath condo had a full kitchen with washer and dryer, dining room and living room with a gas fireplace, 42-in LCD TV and VCR/DVD player. The small balcony contained a full-size gas grill. The master bedroom had a very comfortable king bed, the second bedroom had 2 twin beds. Our teenager said the queen sofa sleeper in the living room was comfortable. The resort provides FREE HBO and high speed wireless internet too! It didn't have granite countertops and the decor was mountain/rustic, but those things aren't important to us. It was very clean and comfortable and the indoor parking/pool/hot tub/sauna was great.

There are NO timeshare salesman here - so you won't be approached to buy anything.

We went skiing at Ski Cooper, a small resort in Leadville, Colorado. It wasn’t crowded and was reasonably priced. We also went tubing one evening at the new Frisco Adventure Park which was great fun.

It snowed the entire time we were there, making the landscape breathtakingly beautiful. This is a great spot for a family to stay, plenty of room, easy access to shopping, restaurants and fun activities. We went to ski but this is a wonderful vacation spot any time of year.
