Stayed through VRBO at Timbers 3 years ago and preferred it. Stayed at the Springs this year for the outside pool and our 9 year old, and she preferred it, so I guess that makes sense. We were on the first floor and the advantage is walking out your door to the grill, the hot tub, the pool, the fireplace and the exit. The disadvantage is we only had key cards to the interior entrance which meant as long if not longer walk or leave the unit open. We opted to leave it open, I mean with all of those people around, who would take anything? Well we are missing a wallet that we can only pinpoint to leaving our condo open, which really is OUR fault. So I guess I would rather stay on a different floor, pool and ski hill view with a balcony, than the first floor convenience. The patio on the first floor was not used like a balcony would have been. If you want the front view, you likely have to go on VRBO to find it vs ordering from the resort, and the view is worth it. Courtyard charming in the holidays with blue and white lights, and you can see the torch parade from your balcony. Might as well because the atmosphere in the River Run Village was, well, boring for New Years. The Village for the fireworks was about 20 minutes of festivities. Frankly, shocked that resort of this expense and size would not have holiday activities beyond 8 pm advertised unless going to a bar or restaurant. One member of our party was hit hard with altitude sickness, so our vacation was quickly diminished for the money. The Springs is lovely, just across the charming bridge to the river run village, but village is not exciting. The condo was well equipped but a bit beat up and the second bedroom bunk beds not comfortable, that will be on the individual owners. If staying in River Run, I liked the springs, but I would go back to Timbers in the future because I like the upgrades and atmosphere better. But for New Years, Keystone is not the place to be unless they change significantly, for any age. If in Keystone, check out the restaurants at the top of the mountain, see my reviews; frankly helped save this vacation.
