The bunk house also contains a 42' flat screen TV, DVD player and a Nintendo video game cube console with numerous video games.

Steps from our door is an amazing clubhouse that has a pool, two hot tubs, pool table, ping-pong table, foosball table and even a racquetball court. There is also a large TV area in the clubhouse, tennis court and deck for grilling out with a large group.

Ready for adventure?

From our doorstep you can hike (snowshoe in the winter) some of the best trails Summit County has to offer. The Lily Pad trail is a shorter hike through national forest to a pristine mountain lake. For the more advanced hiker, the Buffalo Mountain trail will allow you to summit Buffalo mountain and experience spectacular views of Summit County. The hot tubs are great after a day of hiking. Best of all, you never have to get into your car to do any of this!

Five world-class ski resorts (Keystone, Copper Mountain, Breckenridge, Arapahoe Basin, and Loveland) are within a short 20-minute drive, with Vail and Beaver Creek only 45 minutes away. Steamboat is also within reach, although it is a 90 minute drive.

About Craig

We are glad to share our wonderful vacation home at Timber Ridge in Silverthorne, Colorado with you! It is truly a special setting with countless attractions for every family! We live in the Denver area and try to make it to the mountains often as we are all active skiers, hikers and enjoy taking advantage of anything the mountains can offer.

Craig purchased this condo in 2011

Why Craig chose Silverthorne

We love that our mountain home is just an hour and a half from Denver. Just a short drive yet you seem a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city. You can't beat the proximity to skiing, golfing, fishing, hiking, mountain biking, gorgeous views of the mountains and Lake Dillon. We love the mountain decor throughout as it reminds us that we are in the Colorado mountains. We can even watch the 4th of July Fireworks from our front window, Our home is not near any busy roads and is quiet and peaceful - what a Colorado vacation should be!

What makes this condo unique

The most striking and memorable thing about our condo is the view from our front windows and deck. It may be one of the best views in all of Summit County!

Condo is perfect

  • 5 of 5

After an extended stay at Bear Cub Hideaway in August, it really did feel like home. Craig is very responsive and takes pride in making sure the condo Is perfect during your stay. The furnishings are lovely and the new beds are very comfortable. We had two sets of grandkids visit for a few days, Each evening, we would have a family activity. One night was "count the bears," another "count the skis". Great memories were made. A view is very important to us, and this condo has the best. We did enjoy the clubhouse. Loved using the spa after hiking and love that hiking is right out the door. The condo is convenient to everything. We love the farmers markets in nearby towns as well as the wonderful outdoor concerts. It's the best and we will be back again, and again (I hope.)

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We love coming here for July 4th! You can see the fireworks from the condo. The beds are comfortable, there are lots of charging stations, the table is big enough for 10! It's conveniently located across from the club house. It's close to Lily Pad Lake which is a great hike for kids.

Craig is responsive and took care of all our needs! Thank you!

Overall we had a good time

  • 3 of 5

We knew the property was on the third floor however we didn't realize how many stairs there were to get up to the third-floor that was a little bit taxing also there seem to be pet hair in several locations of the home when we left we all kind of had pet hair on our clothes and on our socks and also smelled of pet in the condo however the condo itself was very charming we enjoyed cooking and sleeping there. However the King size bed was extremely hard I had back pain when we left. But overall thank you for our stay we did have a good time in spite of.

Owner's Response: As this is the first time receiving a three star review, I feel compelled to respond. Our condo is above 9500 feet in elevation, so the stairs can affect those that are not used to being at high altitude. The pay-off is the views we have from our condo though! Our condo association does not allow pets for non-owners and it has only been occasional that a pet has even been in our condo. This weekend I visited the condo myself to see if there was an issue. I even inquired from neighbors and the cleaning team to see if they could smell pets. All of them said no. Nonetheless, I asked the cleaning service to perform a deep clean to rid any issues that may exist. I apologize for this issue as this is the first such comment I received like this in six years. Regarding the Master Bedroom King Size bed. This is a brand new bed and the mattress is also a new Beautyrest mattress. It is a mattress more on the firm side as that is what my wife and I prefer. The sales person stated that additionally new mattresses are also firmer as they go through the break-in period. I am glad you had a good time "in spite of" these issues. I know our condo may not be a good fit for all of our guests, but we do work hard to make sure it will appeal to most. Thank You, Craig

Beautiful, comfortable, and central location

  • 5 of 5

The condo fit 4 adults and 5 kids perfectly. The 3 bathrooms made cleanup time quick. We picked Silverthorne for the central location between Colorados popular attractions. The kids couldn't wait to get back from our daily adventures to go swimming. We will definitely try to stay here again in a year or two. Thank you Craig.

Perfect location!

We had a wonderful experience from check in to checkout. Craig was extremely helpful. The property was clean and roomy. It was a perfect location with great views. We enjoyed the clubhouse pool and laundry facilities. Our family would rent again if we are ever in the area!

Amazing-Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

My wife was the first to enter the condo on Thursday evening: she text me and said, "this is beautiful, the decorations are unbelievable, wait until you see our bedroom!" My wife is a horseback rider and all the neat decorations focusing on horse attire. The place had everything that one needed to cook, relax, watch a movie or even a soccer game on Sunday morning (Chelsea and Everton).

Looking out the window was spectacular, the mountains, the reservoir, and even a fox running through the property. The clubhouse was a good place to go for a whirlpool after fishing all day. Fishing was good on the rivers around Silverthorne. The ladies enjoyed visiting Frisco and Breckinridge and glass blowing studio. They loved it!

Thank you Craig for making your place so comfortable for our family! We highly recommend your place for anyone who loves the mountains, skiing, fishing, hiking, or any outdoor activity and a place to just relax!
