This magnificent condominium has some of the best lake and mountain views in Summit County and is near seven World-Class Ski areas! Located in the prestigious Lakepoint Towers complex, the condo has breathtaking views of Lake Dillon framed by the snow-capped mountain peaks of the Continental Divide—seen from the living room, dining room, kitchen, and private covered balcony. The condo is beautifully furnished and professionally decorated in a “cabin-in-the-woods” motif. Situated directly adjacent to a paved bike path, you can walk, jog, bike, rollerblade, or cross-country ski around the lake and to many of the quaint mountain towns of Summit County.
Our Non-Smoking condo gives you a taste of mountain living. After an exhilarating day of skiing, relax on one of the soft leather couches and warm yourself in front of the fire, where you can enjoy an unobstructed view of the lake and mountains. In the summer, you can have dinner on the private, covered balcony overlooking the lake and meadows below. In the winter, have dinner under the deer-antler chandelier in the beautifully decorated dining room, and enjoy the view of the lake. The kitchen, in addition to a fridge, stove, microwave, and dishwasher, is also well-stocked with all the cooking utensils that a gourmet cook could want. Across from the kitchen is a closet with a washer and dryer.
The cozy master bedroom is furnished with a queen-size pillow-top bed, accessories and an adjoining private master bath with twin sinks and a large shower. The view from this bedroom is over the town of Frisco to the majestic peaks of the Ten-Mile Range and Buffalo Mountain. The guest bedroom is equally as nice, with a queen-sized bed and similar views. There is a fold-out cot in the closet of this room, in case the occupants don’t want to share the same bed. There is also a pull-out sofa bed in the living room for extra sleeping room. So this condo can comfortably accommodate six guests. The second bathroom is also beautifully decorated and has a toilet, and tub/shower. WiFi internet service can be obtained for a small daily fee.
Located in the center of Summit County, Frisco is the year-round, central location for enjoying all the Rocky Mountains of Colorado have to offer. World Class Ski areas are just 10-30 minutes away including: Arapahoe Basin, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, Keystone, Loveland, and Vail. Snowmobiling is also provided in Frisco and minutes away is the Frisco Nordic Center offering a variety of cross-county adventures on or near the lake. Or you can also strap on your snowshoes or cross-country skis at the condo and head out directly onto the path along Lake Dillon.
During the warmer months, you can enjoy a leisurely bike ride around Lake Dillon on the paved bike path, which is directly adjacent to the Lakepoint complex. This path connects to the Summit County bike path, which allows those ambitious bikers to travel to Keystone, Dillon, Breckenridge, Vail, or Beaver Creek. Or you could take an early evening walk along the paved path to the nearby Frisco Wetlands and, if you’re lucky, see the beaver at work on their lodge. Further along this path you will come upon the newly renovated Frisco Marina, where you can have lunch or rent a canoe, power boat, sail boat, or kayak, and spend a wonderful day on the lake.
Whitewater rafting, hot-air ballooning, horseback riding, some of the best fly-fishing in the state, excellent golfing, and tennis are also nearby. The surrounding mountains offer world-class mountain biking and hiking opportunities. Year-round shopping at charming boutiques and over 90 outlet stores is only minutes away. No matter what interests you, Summit County has it all.
The Summit Stage, a free bus service, stops within two blocks of the condo and allows you to travel to Dillon, Breckenridge, and Keystone for skiing, shopping, dining, or enjoying one of the many festivals that are sponsored by these local mountain towns. Within a 5 minute walk from the condo are Starbucks, Safeway, Wal-Mart, video rentals, ski rentals, restaurants, liquor stores and more. A little longer walk along the paved bike and walking path takes you along Lake Dillon, past the newly-renovated Marina to charming town of Frisco. On Frisco's Main Street are numerous fine restaurants, pubs, bookstores, coffee shops, and specialty stores. Public tennis courts are also located in Frisco and nearby are scenic championship golf courses. Within minutes are the Breckenridge and Silverthorne Recreation Centers, which have extensive aerobic fitness and weightlifting facilities, as well as basketball courts, climbing walls, indoor swimming pools, saunas, hot tubs, etc.

My wife and I have lived in Colorado for over 20 years and enjoy many outdoor activities, such as camping, fishing, horseback riding, biking, hiking, skiing (both downhill and cross-country), and snowshoeing. We live in the Denver area and use the condo as a way to get closer to all these activities. Although we travel together extensively throughout the world, especially Europe, it is always a relief to get back home to Colorado.
The Owner purchased this condo in 2000
We spent over 10 years searching Summit County real estate before finding this condominium located on Lake Dillon. We wanted something within reasonable driving distance from our home in Denver and near some of the best ski areas in Colorado. We also wanted to have a view of a lake or the mountains--we got both! Since much of our time is spent in the condo, we wanted to see the beauty of the Colorado mountains while there, and not have to drive or hike somewhere to see this beauty. We can sit by the large windows in the living room for hours taking in the beautiful view of Dillon Lake and Grays and Torreys peaks in the background. My wife also likes the idea of being able to see the views while she is cooking!
When buying or renting property, the three most important features to look for are location, location, location. This condo is located a little over an hour from Denver, it is centrally located to 7 major ski areas (all within a 20 minute drive), it is near the quaint mountain town of Frisco with it's stores, restaurants, and bars with live music, and most importantly, it is located directly on Lake Dillon with unobstructed views of the lake and mountain peaks beyond!
This is a wonderful condo! I could sit for hours in the living room reading and enjoying the view of the lake and mountains. I am from Germany and really liked shopping at the nearby outlet malls in Silverthorne.
