Keystone: The Ultimate Mountain Resort Destination

Mother Nature was on a winning streak when she created Keystone, Colorado, a ski resort destination tucked into a beautiful valley just 70 miles west of Denver. Located along the Loveland Pass, Keystone is a prime vacation destination for winter skiing and summer hiking. Keystone boasts over 3,000 acres of skiable areas and two base villages, River Run and Lakeside Village, with numerous Keystone vacation rentals that put you and your travel group in contact with the restaurants, shops, and entertainment that help create an unforgettable mountain vacation.

Get Away From It All so You Can Have It All

Surrounded by three mountains, Dercum Mountain, North Peak, and The Outback, our vacation rentals include mountainside condos, custom homes, modern townhouses, budget friendly duplexes, and resort penthouses where travelers can make the most of their time in Keystone. Some of our properties are tucked into the center of the base villages, while others are more remote, offering you complete privacy and peace of mind. Many of our properties are also pet friendly, making it convenient to take care of every member of your family while you’re on vacation.

Top Sights in Keystone

Re-Experience the Snow

The great thing about vacationing at a mountain resort is the access to professional snow instructors. If you find yourself experienced in either skiing or snowboarding, what about learning the other? At Keystone, you can broaden your skillset with a group, family, or private lesson, where you’ll learn a new way to fall in love with the snow all over again.

Live It Up at a Music Festival

One of the more frequented Keystone events is the Mountain Town Music Festival, held every August when the resort is celebrating the height of summer. Free live music from national acts can be heard while you savor the newest dishes from local food vendors and restauranteurs. You’ll also find locally made crafts and plenty of activities to keep your kids entertained like face painting and a spectacular firework show.

Have Fun on a Sleigh Ride

One very special thing you can do in Keystone is experience a wintery sleigh ride. With snow on the ground and the cool mountain air, you’ll feel like you stepped into a storybook fairyland as you whisk through the forests and hills. Many sleigh rides include dinner and entertainment, and if you happen to book one of our Keystone vacation rentals in the summer, there’s the opportunity to plan for a fun-filled chuck wagon ride for your family.
