Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.25 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

It's now well into “Peak Season” and the mountains are receiving the blessing of record snowfalls. It is now the perfect time to spend in Colorado’s High Country enjoying the winter beauty of the mountain, the groomed trails, and crisp clean air. Check our calendar and give us a chance to make your visit memorable. Looking ahead, Keystone has announced the extended 2016 – 2017 Ski Season Closing Date of April 16. We have many dates available yet, so please keep us in mind as you start to plan for your next trip to Colorado. It’s never too early to start making those plans for your 2016/2017 'Peak Ski Season' dates, as well as “Spring Skiing” dates. Our calendar is always current to help you plan. Some ‘prime’ dates have already been booked so don’t wait. We’ll ‘hold’ your dates as long as we possibly can while you firm up your family and travel plans, but please keep us updated. If you procrastinate the opportunity to book may be completely lost.

In July 2013 we completed a significant remodeling project and have posted many new photos of our condo showing the results. The old wallpaper has been removed, and the walls have been painted & texturized. The new carpet, is a “plush” commercial grade, looks great, and adds to the warmth of the unit. The new Queen-sized bed and new Simmons Beauty Rest mattress set, night stand, table lamp, and floor lamp are a perfect upgrade for the bedroom. The new Cabela’s bedspread and pillow covers top off the entire bedroom remodel to enhance the “Western Mountains” feeling and decor. The new, privacy curtain, for the Jacuzzi shower matches the bedroom decor. The woodwork throughout the condo has been re-stained and we’ve installed new drawer pulls in the kitchen. A new ‘dorm sized’ refrigerator has been installed. The sofa and the dining room table have exchanged places from those shown in old photos you may have seen. The fireplace mantle has been removed, and a new ceiling light fixture has been installed over the sofa. We've just added kitchen work/storage to improve the functionality of our condo food preparation area.

During Thanksgiving 2015 Bonita & I replaced the sofa bed mattress with a new, 4” quilted, foam mattress, foam mattress pad, and vinyl mattress cover, to insure quality bedding for each new guest.

Keystone Resorts is busy planning events and activities for the coming months and the associated holidays, to enhance your stay. Other area activities are always being scheduled and I can't keep up with them all so we’ll leave most of that research up to you. Check out the Keystone 'links' for more information on those local events and activities. Make your plans early for your vacation lodging. You will find our available dates on our 'AVAILABILITY CALENDAR' next to this introduction. Checking it will save everyone time and effort as you explore lodging options.

Be sure to view the gallery of photos of our condo and Dercum Mountain. Please know that what you see is what you'll get. You're assured of a great view and amenities as shown, not something you're assigned at check-in from the available 'pool' of remaining units in a lodging inventory. We've seen fox, ducks, geese, crows, deer, moose, and trout (15+ inches) from our picture windows during our previous stays. We'll guess that you'll see wetlands wildlife as well. Don’t miss the chance to feed the trout from our deck, no charge. They’re great entertainment as they fight for the food. You'll want to consider the 'WOW Factor' when making your lodging choice. The photos and memories that you'll take home with you will last well beyond your departure and that's what we're doing on vacation, isn't it -- building memories?

Please call or write for additional details. If our unit is booked we can sometimes help with referrals to other Riverbank Lodge owners which might earn you the coveted 'Hero' status with your family.

If you are interested in booking and your dates are showing 'Available' contact us ASAP, either with the VRBO/HomeAway form or with a phone call. I will receive your inquiry, initially as an alert on my phone where I can respond via text, and later via email with answers or a rental “Offer Email”. I do my best to keep the calendar current for your convenience. Keystone frequently sells out of River Bank Lodge, 1-BR units similar to ours. If they don’t show availability we can help if ours is not already booked. Contact us ASAP and we can probably 'hold' them for you while you firm up your plans. If you wait, that opportunity may be lost. We know you are 'shopping' for good deals. Please understand that while it's 'First Come -- First Served', we try to reply to all inquiries promptly. If your dates get reserved by another guest before we receive a positive response, there's little we can do. A prompt response to our “Offer Email” is always much appreciated and may avoid a lost opportunity as inquiries often come in nearly simultaneously for the same dates. It’s very helpful to know what to tell each inquiry as soon as possible.

Don't be fooled by other listings advertising really low rates. They may throw in extra fees (e.g., $100 cleaning fees, Key fee, etc.) or be a distance from the shops/activities/lifts & slopes requiring shuttle bus or auto travel. Our rates specify exactly what you're lodging expense will be. Nothing is hidden or added later.

Bonita and I installed two NEW 'Flat Panel' LCD HD TVs in our unit. The one in the living room is a 32 in. Panasonic, and the bedroom has a 24 in. Vizio. Our HD satellite television service provider is now Comcast via “Dish Network”, and FREE, High Speed Wireless Internet service is also provided. The Log-In information is found in our unit.

We purchased and installed a new glass dining room table and six chairs in the 'southwest' style in April 2010. The next July we added a rustic hutch for the kitchenette area, providing more storage and adding to our unit's 'southwest' theme. It has now been moved into the new ‘entry-way’ niche to make more room in the kitchen.

Unit # 2906, is located in the River Bank Lodge, which is in the River Run Village area of Keystone. A short 5 – 8 minute, 400 yard walk will have you at the Keystone Gondola loading station. In less than half that distance you can be in the heart of Keystone's River Run Village shopping, restaurants, and night life. To make your stay a bit more enjoyable you won’t have to put up with a time consuming ‘check-in’ process. Our Property Management Company, “Book By Owner”, has installed a lock-box beside our condo door for access to the electronic swipe card key for entry. Additional cards are located inside the door, along with a parking Hang-Tag for your vehicle. Parking lot access will be explained during your booking process.

During the summer/fall of 2009, our Condo Association made a number of upgrades to the interior and exterior of the building to enhance your vacation experience. They include new carpet in the halls and stairways, a new enlarged deck on the rear of the building overlooking the wetlands, new paint on the exterior of the building, installed a new roof, and a new water heating system providing for nearly instantaneously available HOT Water, and re-sealed/stripped the parking lot. In April 2011 they opened our new workout area. More recently we’ve remodeled all ‘common area’ bathrooms. Parking is free, open-air, and off-street, protected by Security Gates. Parking lot re-striping was completed October 2016. There is one parking space for each unit for your car. This 2015 spring, our association bought and installed new, “FREE” to residents and guests, washer and dryer units located less than 30 feet from our door, just inside of the secured, central core of our condominium, for your convenience.

My wife and I purchased this condo in the fall of 2005. We looked at many condos in the Keystone Resort area before deciding on the River Bank Lodge for the incredible view, the Jacuzzi, and the serenity. Unit #2906 is on the first floor and second from the center of the building to the right, when viewed from the parking lot. Several of the pictures you'll see on this site were taken from our 'wall of windows'. When you book with us, what you'll get is what you can see for yourself before you book. It's almost like owning our unit as your personal 'Time Share', without the tax, maintenance, and upkeep expenses.

The vista from our living room gives you the feeling that you are in the middle of the wilderness. The Village has several fine restaurants, coffee shops, and sports bars. For a truly remarkable dining experience, make a reservation at the 5 Star “Alpenglow Stube”. You’ll ride the gondola up Dercum Mt. and a second lift to the top of North Peak at 11,444’ above sea level where you’ll start your dining experience near a fireplace wearing warm slippers. After dinner and the gondola ride to the base, spend a romantic evening in our condo with its fireplace and Jacuzzi. You’ll have to provide the sparks!!!!!

One of the best kept secrets of the Rocky Mountains is Keystone in the summer. Keystone has two championship golf courses. For the more adventuresome guest, the gondola will take you and your mountain bike to the top so that you can enjoy an easy ride down on groomed roads or, a thrill ride down via the bike trails. Check out all of the other activities in the surrounding area to enhance your summer vacation experience.

In July 2010 our family experienced the tragic loss of our oldest daughter. We’d like to extend a special thanks to those who wrote expressing sympathy, consolation, and offers of assistance. Kandace will be missed, but will be forever in our hearts, as she was our “Santa Fe Connection”. Thanks to Christina, our “Alberta Connection”, and Johnathan, we’re blessed with our first grandchild, a grandson, “Aden”, 04-15-14 & our second, “Caleb” on 04-22-16.

About Gary C Fisher

My wife, Bonita, and I have retired and moved to our new home in rural Kansas, south of Overland Park in 2007. We are both originally Nebraska Cornhuskers and had been living in Sparta, NJ for the last 25 years. I flew out of Newark as a Continental Airlines Capt during those years. Retired by the mandatory 'Age 60' rule, my wife, a Dental Hygienist, and I looked back west. We are enjoying the peaceful lifestyle in our Midwest home near our families and our new friends.

Gary C Fisher purchased this condo in 2005

Why Gary C Fisher chose Summit County Colorado

We chose the River Bank Lodge, River Run Village, Keystone for several reasons, including the view from our picture window, which is spectacular. The peace and tranquility of the mountains in the distance with the Snake River wetlands and all of nature's wildlife on display at our wall-of-windows, make for a wonderfully relaxing vacation experience, no matter the season. The shopping and dining available in the 'Village' are but a five minute walk from our door.

What makes this condo unique

The River Bank Lodge is ideally situated for year-round vacation enjoyment due to its LOCATION and proximity to Keystone Resorts facilities. The view from the heart shaped indoor Jacuzzi overlooking the wetlands & Dercum Mountain in the distance, is unique. Easily accommodating four adults, our unit is but a short walk to/from the ski slopes, lift, village activities, & night-life. Only a 1.5 hr drive from DIA, west on I-70, and you can be nestled in Colorado's High Country. The Keystone Conference Center is only 2 miles away, making it very handy for our corporate guests.

The arrival instructions were meticilouslynlaid out. The condominium was well appointed with a grand view of Keystone Ski resort. We were attending a ski summit and the property was within walking distance to then lifts as well as the restraunts and shops we needed to frequent. Thanks Gary and Bonita for a wonderful stay!

Cozy and well-maintained home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 2-4 goes to CO mountains to ski each winter for the last 15 years, twice per season, thus has a lot of experience renting condos there. The living area of this one-bedroom condo compared to others is similar but in a way better because it has a large jacuzzi inside! The kids loved it and they couldn't wait to soak themselves in it after a full day skiing, best of all, they could enjoy the jacuzzi while watching the TV in the living room through the large window. There is a full kitchen with a 2-head stove that I cooked simple breakfast and dinner almost every day during our stay. I would like to mention also that the owners are very nice as they offered us a reasonable rate compared to the market price and waived our kids' fees without our asking. I will definitely recommend this condo to anyone.

Property accommodations need to be updated. Great views a plus.

  • 3 of 5

We found the accommodations to be outdated especially the kitchen . We did not use the kitchen at all. The fireplace did not work . We mentioned it to property manager and he was unable to fix it upon first time there. We were overall satisfied with the room and living area. But consider updating.

Owner's Response: Fred has shared some valid concerns and comments. Since we have invested over $20,000 in upgrades and improvements in the last few years, we're holding off on a complete remodel. Also HOA restrictions don't permit all the improvements some might like. While our kitchen area is functional, a fancy kitchen would be a waste as most guests aren't booking for an eat-in option, but prefer to patronize the fine area restaurants. They are interested in what our locaiton, view, and Jacuzzi have to offer them and their family for a relaxing get-a-way to the mountains, no matter the season.

Great location, very friendly and accommodating owner.

  • 5 of 5

I just stayed here recently with a friend and we had a great time. The unit is less than 5 minutes walking distance to the river run gondola. The main skier parking lot is further than this place. It has a great view of the mountain, and at night is mesmerizing to watch the snow cats work.

I would definitely stay here again, and will be recommending it to my friends as well. The owner was very nice and informative. I had everything I needed before even leaving. Thanks again!
