I live in metro Denver, about 80 miles from Summit County. I've lived in Colorado much of my life and can't imagine living anywhere else full-time. The weather, scenery, activities, and sports combine to make it a wonderful place to live.
I've been in the travel industry for most of my career with travel agencies and airlines and have managed reservation and frequent flier systems for several large domestic and international airlines. I've traveled to over 55 countries and am a big fan of vacation rentals. In addition to staying in mine, I've enjoyed VRBO homes in Beijing, Nicaragua, Panama, London, Paris, Hawaii, St Thomas, Barbados, Normandy,and others. I really enjoy meeting other owners that also have a passion for the industry.
Feel free to contact me to get information about my Lodge at Lake Dillon Condo, local activities, or anything else pertaining to Summit County or Colorado travel and tourism.
Shannon purchased this condo in 2007
Why Shannon chose Dillon
I've been visiting Summit County since I was a child, before Lake Dillon was created. My dad and I used to fish the Blue River, one of the three rivers that now flow into the lake.
I had looked for a condo for two years and instantly fell in love with this unit when I walked through the front door. I love being able to get away from the city and into the mountains quickly. The Lodge at Lake Dillon has a great location overlooking the lake and Keystone Resort. Dillon has a small town feel and is centrally located to the many nearby activities.
I spend a lot of time up there, making sure it's in top condition. I regularly change the quilts and other decorator items, as well as updating the video collection and books. I just added a new ceiling fan in the living room as well as a new padded living storage box which doubles as a large footrest.
What makes this condo unique
There's nothing like an early morning cup of coffee on the patio overlooking the lake. Many times I am able to watch hawks or eagles soaring or sitting in the trees below. Sometimes I hear coyotes on the mountains across the lake.
I really enjoy walking two blocks down the street to the Arapahoe Cafe for breakfast - the best in the county. I ate there as a kid, before the building was moved to its present position from what is now the bottom of the lake.
The Lodge is directly across the street from the Free Summit Stage stop which takes guests all over the county. It's also within a block of downtown where the weekly summer Farmers Market and many Summer Festivals are held.
The Dillon Marina and Pug's Tiki Bar are steps away, down the bike path from the Lodge.
Guestbook comments from the owner
This review was sent via email. I thought it was quite unique so decided to post.
"Shannon, this is the best equipped VRBO we have seen so far. Marvin must use this as a VRBO marketing example how it should be.
In other places we find next to nothing. But then, if an owner would put all these convenience things into a home in France for example, the French renters would take everything with them when they leave...
Anyway, we enjoyed the condo even if some half days were cold and rainy."
