7 Reasons Why We’re Crushing Hard on Lakeside Condos

Write it down: Lakeside Condos in Lakeside Village at Keystone.  These studio condos boast incredible views, full kitchens and are super spacious, considering they are studios. Read on to see why we’re crushing on Lakeside Condos and why you should book a stay at Lakeside for your next visit to Keystone Resort in Colorado!

One. The Views
Seriously, you can’t get any closer to the lake. These Lakeside Condo balconies practically hang over the lake and the views of the mountain ranges and evergreens in the background make these some of the best views at all of the resort. You’ll love sitting out on the balcony with a cup of coffee or a cold one, or enjoying the view from inside the condo with your dinner.

Two. The Location
In the winter, you are just yards away from the 5-acre frozen ice skating rink and the Keystone  Adventure Center. In the summer, enjoy the lake on a stand-up paddle board, kayak or paddle boat.  Enjoy morning walks around the lake in any season! The Snake River is just beyond the Lake as well as the paved Bike Path. You have world-class dining just next door inside the Keystone Lodge & Spa, at the Bighorn Bistro, as well restaurants like the Edgewater Cafe and Pizza on the Plaza downstairs. There is a free Keystone resort shuttle stop just outside the door. You can even walk to the Keystone Conference Center and Tennis Centers!

Three. Full Size Kitchens
Unlike some other studio condo options at Keystone Resort, most of the Lakeside condos feature a full size kitchen.  Save money by cooking meals at the condo instead of eating out and keep any leftovers in the fridge! Enjoy a home-cooked meal overlooking the lake!

Four. Affordable
Since these are still studio condos, you’ll find some really reasonable rates all year long at Lakeside Condos.  Save your money for an experience while you are here, such as a whitewater rafting trip, downhill snow tubing or a fancy dinner on top of the mountain at the Alpenglow Stube!


Five. Fireplaces
It doesn’t really feel like the mountains without a fireplace! In addition to the balconies and full kitchens, you’ll find a fireplace in most Lakeside vacation rental properties.  Curl up by the fire on a summer evening after a day out on the lake or to warm up after a day out on the ski slopes!


Six. Access to the Lodge & Spa Pool Area
Lakeside Condo guests have full access to the heated pool and hot tub at Keystone Lodge & Spa.  Enjoy a quick dip in the pool or a long soak in the hot tub after a full day of activities at Keystone Resort!


Seven. Events
Lakeside Village is not the main village area of Keystone, but there are still tons of great events & activities that take place here.  In the summer, look for kids fishing derbies, A Taste of Keystone over Labor Day weekend, live music on the lake, 4th of July special events and more.  In the winter, enjoy the Chocolate Village next door at the Keystone Lodge & Spa, pond hockey tournaments and figure skating shows, plus fireworks over the lake for New Years. There’s always something fun to do in Lakeside!
