I am acting upon my new year resolution to finally create and post a blog about Keystone Resort and vacation condo rentals. This is my 3rd winter season offering my Keystone condo for rent. Just to be upfront, one of the motives behind this blog is to promote this beautiful 4br 4ba large condo as a great vacation condo rental at Keystone Resort in Summit County Colorado. However, the other important intention is to provide miscellaneous useful information for other vacationers coming to Keystone Resort. All information is also relavent to people wanting to ski at A-Basin (Arapahoe Basin) as we are the closest lodging and condo rental accomodations being only 3 miles away at Keystone.
I’ll start with some Restaurant suggestions
for the higher end dining experiences – all based on first hand experience with my family and friends:High End Recommendations:Keystone Ranch
– gourmet fixed price, multiple course dining and a elegant rustic atmosphere. Highlights include the food and the special couch-around-the-hearth dessert experience. Call Keystone resort reservations.Der Fondue Chessel
– bring your appetite (and I thought I was a big eater) – 4 courses of food – large delicious salad, cheese fondue (white or cheddar), meat/fish grill fondue, chocolate fondue dessert (milk or dark). The restaurant is in the Outpost Lodge – 30 minutes and two gondola rides from River Run Village – return trip can get chilly but they do provide wool blankets in the gondolas – tidbit: remember to carry your blanket from first to second gondola. The food was excellent and there was a live roving “Germanic” band. Call Keystone resort reservations. Kids are equally welcome and are half price.Samplings
(in Frisco) – excellent food with extensive wine list. Despite small portions even for a tapas style restaurant, we continue to return for more good food and know to order enough “samplings”.The Mint
(in Silverthorne) – best prime rib in the county and by many other standards. The Mint is known for the all you can eat, prime rib dinner that runs about $30. They also have a fine selection of steaks that you grill yourself. For some reason, their salad bar is always a standout mostly because it is perfectly chilled and fresh versus any gourmet selections. Very casual dining.Moderate Dining Recommendations:Ruby Tuesday
(in Dillon) – yes it is a chain restaurant but the burgers are big and juicy. They also have a small salad bar and the veggies were nice and crisp.Pug Ryan’s Steak House and Brewery
(in Dillon) - very broad food selection but can get very crowded (30-60 minute weekend waits). Large portions and good food – I highly recommend the rib combo (beef and pork). Good microbrew beers to go with everything.
That’s all for now on the restaurants near Keystone. Plenty of others, but will list another time.GreatRental Keystone Vacation Condo Rental:
