Dillon House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12-16)

Conveniently located off Route 6, just 3 miles from Keystone Ski Resort, and under 20 minutes to Breckenridge, our home is also a short drive to Copper, A-Basin, Loveland, Vail and Beaver Creek Resorts.

We have been in the vacation rental business for over 15 years and have many happy (and repeat!) customers. We book directly with our guests, not through this listing site, in order to maintain control over our bookings and to save our guests hundreds of dollars in unnecessary fees.

This beautiful Lodge-style home has breathtaking Mountain views and borders the Arapaho National Forest. This 3000 sq. ft. multi-level home features massive windows, gourmet kitchen with granite countertops and premium appliances, cable TV, washer & dryer, large deck, and a detached 2 car garage. Hardwood floors and natural slate cover the upper two levels of the home with designer carpeting in the lower bedrooms. Underfloor radiant heat is controlled through 5 different zones.

The house also has a detached apartment above the garage with an additional bedroom, 3/4 bathroom and kitchen. You can rent the house with or without the apartment included. The apartment alone is not rented out.

In the main house, there are 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, a loft, 1 kitchen and can sleep from 10-14 people in comfort.

With the apartment added on, there are a total of 5 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, 2 kitchens and can sleep from 12 - 16 people in comfort.

We have recently added a very large, private hot tub with some amazing views of the surrounding mountains.

Located in the prestigious Summerwood subdivision, renters have complimentary access to the Sports Club with racquetball, 2 tennis courts, sauna, hot tub, outdoor pool (summer only), and Nautilus workout facilities.

Due to neighborhood regulations, parking is limited to 4 cars: 2 in the garage and 2 in the driveway. Street parking is not permitted at any time. According to neighborhood regulations, pets are prohibited as well.

About Gary or Christine Ives

We have owned another vacation rental property in the area for over 15 years. We have always thought Summerwood was a special neighborhood, so when we saw this house, we were very excited to purchase it.

Gary or Christine Ives purchased this house in 2012

Why Gary or Christine Ives chose Summit County Colorado

The Outlook at Summerwood is in a great location, beautiful neighborhood, and is so convenient to the bike paths, skiing, shopping and restaurants.

What makes this house unique

The location cannot be beat! We are adjacent to the beautiful bike path that winds throughout Summit County. We are located near all of the major ski resorts. Shopping, restaurants, and many fun activities are within just a few minutes!

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this wonderful home as part of a Colorado family reunion. Dillon is a wonderful place for a reunion with lots of things to do for all ages and beautiful scenery. The Outlook at Summerwood was one of 3 homes we rented in the area. This home filled our needs well and the customer service from Christine and Gary was excellent. Everything was handled promptly and cheerfully, with super customer service.

Great Family Home

  • 5 of 5

The Outlook at Summerwood is a wonderful home to share with the entire family. This home is large enough for everyone to have their own space. My grandsons enjoyed the bunk room and my daughter and her husband liked the privacy of the apartment above the garage. We all gathered in the large kitchen for coffee every morning. We spent our days hiking, shopping, bike riding and taking the kids to the playground in Dillon. We vacationed here last summer and we will be back. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Exceptional House and Customer Service

  • 5 of 5

We stayed from 20-29 January 2015 and thoroughly enjoyed it. The kitchen was wonderful and fully stocked, beds and rooms were comfortable, and the hot tub was great. The location was convenient for access to Keystone, Breckenridge and Loveland ski areas with all our shopping needs being met just down the road in Dillon. I think it is extremely important to mention how user friendly the owners were in there customer service. I was setting this trip up for a work function and the owners where patient and accommodating as I worked with the company finance office to figure out how to pay them prior to our stay. Thank you to the owners and I will stay there again and recommend it to my friends.

As beautiful as expected!

  • 5 of 5

My family celebrated my parents 40th wedding anniversary at The Outlook. We had a party of 13 (including 5 kids). The space was perfect and location ideal. My parents stayed in the suite above the garage and the rest of us in the main house. The kitchen was spacious for meals and the community ideal for family. We swam, played tennis and quickly made it in and out of town. Morning coffee on the deck...breathtaking. The only downfall was that the internet didnt work a majority of the time but they fixed it immediately once mentioned.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! We are glad you were able to take advantage of all that Summit County has to offer! We apologize for the internet connection. We are working closely with Comcast to get it resolved once and for all. Mountain internet can be spotty, but we don't like for our guests to be inconvenienced. We hope you'll come back and stay at our home again! Gary and Christine

Great Place, we'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

This house is great! We had a large group of people and this house worked perfectly for us. Very nice, very large, very clean. Extra large kitchen and dining room worked great for our large group. Individual bedrooms provided privacy. The Hot tub was great! Thanks a bunch, we'll be back next year.

Terrific Experience

  • 5 of 5

Found this property to be very warm & accommodating - made for a fantastic family Christmas celebration. Great central Summit County location near Dillon/Silverthorne area - made getting to Keystone, Breckenridge and Vail quite easy (our family of 6 enjoys hitting the slopes at all 3 resorts). Appreciate the well-stocked kitchen and availability of basic cooking necessities. Also loved the new hot tub! Strongly recommend this great home for family vacations!!
