Neighborhoods of Keystone

Keystone is comprised of several distinct neighborhoods and characterized throughout them by differing types of properties and amenities. Each area is unique and has its own merits and is desirable in it’s own way and will certainly suit our guests based on their varying needs and wants from their Keystone lodging.

The River Run Village is one of the most sought after locations in Summit County, let alone Keystone Resort. River Run Village plays host to 14+ different condo buildings, a score of Townhomes, and private homes. Home to the beloved summer festivals, it is where you want to be to be in the heart of it all. Walk to shops, restaurants, events and the River Run gondola. In the winter you'll find a small outdoor ice rink that turns into a mini golf course for the summer! Enjoy attending events at Warren Station and the world class dining options.

The ski in/out properties, Lone Eagle and the Timbers are the upper end of Keystone. Sporting outstanding amenities and an unbeatable location, on the edge of the slopes. The Springs  is without a doubt one of the most unique building in Keystone and a favorite of families. Red Hawk Lodge and  Townhomes offer quieter versions of the primary locations of River Run. Expedition Station, Buffalo, Silver Mill, Dakota, Black Bear, and Jack Pine Lodges are the center of the Village. Each building has unique amenities and caters to many different personal preferences. River Bank and Mill Creek tend to cater to vastly different customers but sit directly next to one another. The new River Run Townhomes offer luxury, larger rentals but still in the village. Regardless of your property desire, you will be able to find it in River Run Village!

The Mountain House base area is the older of the two main base areas in Keystone, and while not as busy as the River Run base, it provides a much more easily accessible way to get up the hill, as the Peru lift tends to be far less crowded. The Discovery Learning Area is a model of excellence for learn to ski programs, and there are several walking distance lodges to this base area. If you want to be close to the slopes without the hustle and bustle, the Mountain House base area is the go to base. You'll find a few dining options here in the main lodge, as well as some stand-alone restaurants scattered throughout the large area that is called 'Mountain House'.

Chateaux DuMont and Slopeside Lodges are both just yards from the slopes and the Peru Lift. Other complexes in the area such as Ski Run, Hidden River, Tenderfoot, Cinnamon Ridge, Gateway and Liftside are a longer walk to the slopes, but still walking distance. Often wagons are available for hauling gear! Many of these properties have wonderful views of the ski slopes and tend to be a bit larger than the River Run standard condos. If you desire to go into the village, the free Keystone Resort shuttle system can take you there for dinner, shopping, or other activities.  

One of the most alluring locations is the East Keystone area. There are several subdivisions with some of the newest townhomes, houses and condos in the Keystone Area. The area is comprised of several subdivisions of townhomes built within the last 20 years. There is the classically elegant Ski Tip Ranch, with large floorplans and private garages regardless of whether the townhome has 2, 3 or 4 bedrooms. Common area hot tubs and easy access to the Ski Tip Lodge are other features. Trappers Crossing provides the most affordable East Keystone location, but boasts generous floorplans and a very quiet location. The brand new in 2014-15 Alders Townhomes are sure to amaze with their ultra modern and comfortable layouts with a classic mountain feel. Last but not least, the flagship of East Keystone is the acclaimed Settlers Creek Townhomes and Estates. Complete with all modern equipment and plenty of storage, these properties are further enhanced by the Minnie’s Cabin, Pool and Hot Tub area which draws renters all by itself!

This area of Keystone is typically the most budget friendly area, not by virtue of the quality of the properties, or distance to the mountain or even the age of the buildings, but rather because of a combination of the 3 aforementioned items. West Keystone is the oldest area as far as the buildings are concerned. However, as is with any older property, as long as it is updated, it will perform well regardless. Many properties, while suffering from being some distance from the slopes are benefitted by having impressively large layouts and access to fantastic amenities, nearby trails, forested areas, sprawling lawns or beautiful views. Another plus of West Keystone is the quietness of the location, far from the bustle of the base areas, this area provides close proximity to everything with the feeling of really being tucked away from the busy areas. Most visitors at these properties will want to drive a car versus taking a shuttle. 

The Keystone Ranch can lay claim to some of the most desirable houses in Keystone or Summit County for that matter. Tucked away behind the Summit Cove neighborhood, and situated between Keystone’s 2 acclaimed, award winning golf courses, the Keystone Ranch feels like it is hundreds of miles away from civilization, yet with all the comforts of home. If you love the peace and quiet and wide open views, come see the ranch in the summer or the winter, you will almost certainly love it!

Amazing views and summer and winter fun! The small lake at Keystone provides a beautiful scenic backdrop as well as tons of fun activities like ice skating in the winter months and stand up paddle boarding or paddle boating in the summer. This is also a popular area for conference attendees, since many of the properties are within walking distance to the Keystone Conference Center. Enjoy a few shops and restaurants and being very close to the Snake River as well as Keystone Lake.  It's perfect for early morning walks or a quick hop onto the paved bike path! 

This is the area referred to as basically everything which is situated north of Highway 6. Many of these buildings tend to be a bit older in age although many are also updated internally, making for a great quality option with a lower price and much more space. Many of the buildings and developments in the North Keystone area are serviced by the Keystone shuttle as well making for easy transportation to and from the mountain. The views from properties in the North Keystone area also tend to be among the best in Keystone. Overlooking either Keystone Resort or Lakeside Village, many have a view of the 10-mile range or the Continental Divide.
