The Best Condos in Keystone for Travelers on a Budget

When looking for the best bang for your buck, here are some of the best options in Keystone. Typically you’ll find lower rates outside of the main villages, just a short shuttle ride away from the ski slopes!

Warm up after a day on the slopes at this great firepit at Slopeside Condos!


Slopeside Condos
These condos are literally ‘slopeside’, right next to the slopes at the Mountain House Base Area.  Although these are studio condos, most of them still include a full kitchen! You’ll find that these condos have one of the best locations at Keystone Resort. Since the Slopeside Condos are outside of the main River Run Village, you’ll find lower rates than anything in River Run. Choosing a studio instead of a one-bedroom saves you even more. The building at Slopeside was recently renovated in 2016 with a completely new facade and common spaces. Enjoy the 2 outdoor hot tubs with ski slope views and shared barbeque grills and gas firepit. The building also has a heated parking garage. Book your next stay at Slopeside Condos and save!


A beautiful living space at two bedroom, Gateway 5030 in the Mountain House Village at Keystone


Gateway Lodge
The Gateway Lodge sits just outside the boundaries of River Run, meaning you skip the River Run prices, but still have a great location.  This building is super convenient, it not only hosts our check-in office, but you’ll also find a breakfast spot, the Haywood Cafe, Breeze ski rentals, Gateway Grocery and Liquors, and Serenity Spa and Salon all on site in the main level of the building! This building hosts studios up to 4 bedroom condos, making it great for multiple families or friends with different sized groups traveling together.  The studio options are great for a couple or small family.  Most of the studios sleep 4 – 6 and feature a kitchenette instead of a full kitchen, so if you are willing to make microwave or hotplate meals, you’ll find that these condos have one of the most reasonable price tags around.  Plan on meals like sandwiches, oatmeal, mac and cheese and so on while staying here and save by not eating out at every meal. The Gateway Lodge has a fitness center, heated parking, and indoor pool and hot tub and there is a shuttle stop at the front door of the building that comes every 20 minutes during ski season.


Gorgeous decor and luxury finishes in this newly renovated Wild Irishman Condo, #1064


Flying Dutchman and Wild Irishman
These were some of the first properties built in Keystone, near the original Mountain House Base Area in West Keystone. Although they are older, many of them have been renovated and revamped with new flooring, decor, furniture and more. They are less than a mile from the ski slopes and you’ll find that they tend to be much more spacious than some of the smaller condos in River Run. You’ll find a range of 1 – 3 bedroom condos at both of these buildings and they include some great amenities like their year-round heated outdoor pools and hot tubs. They are located in a woodsy area with lots of open spaces, providing the perfect mountain setting for your family ski vacation!


This Flying Dutchman condo, #1114 features nature at your backdoor with a great patio!


Quicksilver Condos
This complex is personally one of my favorites! Quicksilver vacation condos tend to be multi-floor properties with lots of space and great views of the mountains. The setting is similar to West Keystone, with lots of tall pine trees and grassy areas that make for great scenes in the winter when watching the snow fall as you warm up next to the fireplace. These condos feature vaulted ceilings with lots of windows, making them bright and inviting. This complex has one of the best indoor pools in Keystone! The location is great, situated just across the highway from Keystone Lake, perfect to go ice skating with your kids in the winter. You are also just a mile from the Mountain House Base Area, with a free shuttle to take you there! Mountain House has a great ski school and learning area for beginners, as well as a lodge and lockers if you want to pack your lunch to save some cash for another activity!

Why I Love Staying at Quicksilver Condos for My Family Ski Vacation

As many plan their Keystone vacations, many tend to flock to River Run Village or even Mountain House to be close to the slopes and for the convenience.  While it is cool to be able to walk out the door and to the slopes, there’s something to be said about staying away from the hustle and bustle AND saving money.


Last winter, after many hours of researching, weeding through a plethora of information, pouring over property photos and descriptions, trying to weigh out the options as to what would be the best place for me and my family for our upcoming ski trip, I finally decided to pick up the phone to get help.  I connected with one of SummitCove’s amazing vacation planners.  After asking me a few questions and hearing out our priorities, she helped me narrow down my search and ultimately ended up recommending Quicksilver Condos in North Keystone. It was a two bedroom, two bath condo that featured 2 twin beds in the spare bedroom, perfect for my kids.


One of the biggest benefits is the obvious factor of price.  Since you are about a mile away from the slopes, the rates are generally lower here than any properties that are within walking distance to the slopes. My kids are in middle school and high school, so they are at the point where they can carry their own gear. Saving money on lodging would leave us with plenty of wiggle room to splurge on a nice meal out or an additional activity that we may not have been able to do had we spent more on the accommodations.  The Quicksilver property is tucked away in the lodgepole pines on the opposite side of the highway as the resort.  It is in a very quiet area and had great views of the mountains and I absolutely loved watching the snow fall from our living room in this pretty, wooded area.  It really had the feel of a cabin in the woods.


The complex has a wonderful and large indoor pool and hot tub.  Nothing beats hitting the hot tub after a day on the slopes!  There is a shuttle stop located at the entrance of the condos, so getting to the slopes was a breeze.  About a 5 minute ride, we were there!  No worrying about parking and instead of having to walk across the village, we were dropped off at Mountain House, just yards from the lift! This was seriously easier than walking from a condo.  The shuttle picked up about every 20 minutes all day long.  We packed our lunches, stored them in a locker and headed up the Peru lift.

The awesome pool at Quicksilver Condos

This Quicksilver #1608 condo was very spacious and we had plenty of room to enjoy each other’s company.  We spent the evenings with family dinners followed by board games or movies by the fireplace. One night we took the shuttle into River Run and had dinner at the Kickapoo Tavern and then walked around the village.  We window shopped and had a cup of hot chocolate as we warmed up by the firepit.  On our day off from skiing, we decided to take a try at ice skating and headed to the HUGE outdoor skating rink at Lakeside Village.  It had certainly been awhile since any of us had been on skates, but quickly we were skating laps, spinning and grinning from ear to ear.


I absolutely loved our family vacation in Keystone last year and Summit Cove made the booking process so easy.  I highly recommend calling them as you do your research – they know all of the properties so well! They also give you a coupon book that offers all sorts of discounts on your ski rentals, rental car, dining and activities.  They also said I will get a returning guest loyalty discount every time we come back to Keystone… needless to say, I am already planning next year’s trip! I think we have found a family tradition that we all love! Thanks SummitCove for your help.  Quicksilver is an awesome place to stay!
