About the property

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. The Master bedroom has a queen bed with it's own private bathroom. The second bedroom on the first floor also has a queen bed with a bathroom. Upstairs there are two more queen beds, and a full bathroom. In addition, the 'Hideway' room has two full size futons, so you can sleep 10 comfortably.

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 Summit County Colorado

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. 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!

Nice condo in a convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Our group of seven adults enjoyed our stay at this condo. We enjoyed having space for everyone to relax after days of skiing and snowshoeing. The kitchen was well stocked and it was really nice having a washer and dryer. This condo is out of the congestion of town but still very convenient to shops, restaurants and lots of fun activities. We would definitely stay here again!

Perfect location, stunning views and a great condo!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived in Silverthorne, we were met with stunning views, great restaurants, shopping and a

fabulous condo to call our home away from home. The condo had everything we needed and more! The views

were breathtaking, the massage table was wonderful after skiing, and everyone enjoyed the pool and hot tub just

across from the condo. Thank you so much for sharing your slice of heaven with us!

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!
