Silverthorne Condo Rental Photos and Description

Spacious 2 story, 4 BR --3 BA, Luxury Condo

This spacious, beautiful condo is nestled in the Wildernest area of Silverthorne, CO. Plenty of room for two families, you have ample room to spread out and relax. There's even a 'Kids Hideaway' upstairs with a TV and VCR! While the kids are watching their favorite movie, grab the binoculars from the mantle, and search Ryan Gulch for Moose and other wildlife frequently seen behind our property. Relax, and enjoy the view of the Ten Mile Range and Buffalo Mtn. as the sun is setting, or kick off your shoes and revitalize on your own thermal massage bed. Need some action, walk across the parking lot to the clubhouse to swim, relax in the hot tub, play foos ball or ping pong. For the skiers in the group, it is a short drive to 6 ski areas. In the warmer seasons, there are several hiking trails within walking distance.

At the Smiling Moose, kickback and strum a few notes on the guitar, listen to CD's, or watch a DVD....all provided. Of course, you are in the wilderness, so why not cross country ski, snowshoe, hike or bike, then start a fire in the fireplace and relax. You'll enjoy the 'Moosey' surroundings along with all the comforts of home. The kitchen is fully stocked, and there is even a barbeque grill.

About Sharon McNeil

We've owned the 'Smiling Moose' since July 2001. We wanted a place that was in the mountains yet easy to get to on the weekends. Our place is perfect. Its far enough away from the city that your in the wilderness yet only about an hour from Denver.

Sharon McNeil purchased this condo in 2001

Why Sharon McNeil chose Silverthorne

We absolutely love all the outdoor opportunities that abound in this area. Avid skiers,hikers,bikers,etc. will always find something to do to burn off a few extra calories. We would enjoy having you come and stay with us. As long time Colorado residents, we believe its a blessing to be able to live and play here.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for such great accomodations. Your place is very nice and we had everything we needed. We love visiting CO. The hiking is gorgeous in the summer. Some of our family members climbed their first 14'er - Mt. Quandry. We hope to do many more and would love to stay here again! We saw a huge moose our last night. It was so cool.

Perfect Condo

  • 5 of 5
We used the condo as our "base-camp" for our vacation adventures. We had 6 adults and 3 kids and we had plenty of space. Very well equipped with everything we needed - the washer/dryer was a life-saver with the kids (especially after having some very muddy hikes). Very nicely decorated and clean. Sharon was excellent to work with and even called to see how our trip went once we were home. We even saw a moose our last day in the marshy area off the deck - it was so big! We've rented a lot of condos in the past, and this is by far the nicest one we've stayed in.

We had a wonderful vacation - hiked to some beautiful waterfalls & lakes; 4 of us bagged our first 14'er,Quandary Peak (1 more made it to 13,500 feet or so before altitude sickness stopped her); saw a lot of wildlife (moose, elk, fox, ptarmigan, pika, marmots, mountain goats); rented Jeeps and went over the mountains and down a stream; played around in Vail, Keystone & Breckenridge; and had a great time "relaxing" in the mountains.

The beds and couches were comfy to fall into after our hikes and the kitchen was perfect for cooking our meals. The kids had a blast swimming in the club house and we were thankful it was right across the parking lot. Thanks for renting your condo to us - we will be in touch again for our next vacation! Thanks again - we had a great time!

So comfy, cozy, relaxed and fun!

  • 5 of 5
our group has stayed here at least once a year for the last 7+ years. We have never been disappointed by our stays except when we have to leave. It is easy to get to from I-70, close to hiking, shopping, restaurants, and lots of outdoor fun.

Smiling Moose Condo - Great Ski Get-Away

  • 5 of 5
This place was great for a group of adults wanting to get away from family and pets for a few days of skiing and fun. There was plenty of rooms and beds for a fabulous price. There was a well stocked kitchen and we found it more fun and relaxing to stay in the condo and cook than to go out to dinner. It was a wonderful place to stay and we will do so in the future if our plans bring us to Copper, Breckenridge, or the other nearby resorts.

This would also be a great place for family or a couple of families. Adults downstairs, kids in the loft.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the Smiling Moose condo was perfect. With 2 families and 2 little ones, the place absolutely fit our needs. The extra room in the loft was an added bonus for us, and would be perfect for another family or more to share the condo. And Sharon was a perfect hostess in answering all of our questions...though she does still owe us an actual Moose sighting :)

Thanks so much.

Owner's Response: We will have to see what we can do to get the moose to cooperate when we have renters staying. It's amazing how elusive they can be for being so big!!

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Two families (four parents and three kids under 8) spent three nights here. The kids loved the pool and the loft room with the TV/VCR. The grownups loved the massage bed, guitar, binoculars. Everyone enjoyed the great views and spaciousness rooms. We had everything we needed to eat in, and we were a short drive from Breckenridge and other fun resort areas. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Spacious and Inviting

  • 5 of 5
This property was a perfect match for our needs. The spacious upstairs loft with extra bedroom and bathroom were exactly what we needed for our family. The unit was clean and had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. The clubhouse was an added bonus. The property owners were very helpful in answering questions and making us feel welcome.

Enjoy this community within Silverthorne, Colorado nestled high in the trees on Buffalo Mountain.

The Wildernest Neighborhood is one-of-a kind Colorado experience. Centrally located between Dillon and Silverthorne. All the mountains** of Summit County are nearby, as are the conveniences of town such as dining and shopping, yet at Wildernest you’ll enjoy a secluded, quiet mountain vacation. National Forest land is in your backyard, with cross-country and snowshoe trails to enjoy. Views of the spectacular Gore Range and evergreens replace parking lots and traffic. Plus, you'll never be bored with all the fun family events in town!

**Copper Mtn, Keystone, Breckenridge, Arapahoe Basin, Loveland, and don't forget Vail and Beaver Creek!
