Tucked along the Snake River and Keystone Lake in the Lakeside Village, this 152-key lodge is a full service hotel in a sea of condos, creating an idyllic mountain escape for families and romantics alike. Natural materials and western décor are pervasive, starting with the large river stone fireplace and massive antler chandelier in the Bighorn Lounge.
Bed and Bath
Guestrooms range from intimate digs to split-level lofts; many offer fantastic river and mountain views. Bathrooms are spacious and modern, outfitted with comfy tub/shower combos. The décor reflects the alpine environment thanks to wood furnishings and rich hues of merlot and forest green.
After a day playing in the mountains, the 10,000-square-foot spa is a treat complete with heated outdoor pool, hot tubs, steam room, dry sauna and fitness studio. Let the High Country Stone Massage penetrate sore muscles, or opt for a Sun & Snow facial to repair and protect damaged skin with a natural fruit acid peel followed by a chilled herbal mask and full body massage.
In the Area
Keystone Resort’s 3,148 acres cascade down three peaks with five alpine bowls, a top tier terrain park, Colorado’s best night skiing and access to pristine sidecountry. After a day on the hill, après close to your lodge at Bighorn Bistro where the suds are local and the burgers are big. Be sure to make reservations well in advance at the award winning Ski Tip Lodge Restaurant where a seasonal four-course feast is served in a late 18th century log and stone stagecoach stop.
How to Get There
We had a miserable stay at this resort. Our room was south facing and it was steaming hot inside. I could not believe that there was NO air conditioning! News alert: It gets hot in the mountains too. We used the so-called fan that they provided but it wasn't even powerful enough to cool down a doll house. We got yet another fan from housekeeping and that did not help either. One of the fans they brought to our room was actually a heater!! We didn't sleep most of the night due to our discomfort. They don't even provide a microwave which even the cheapest of hotels do provide. For the price of our stay, there should have also been breakfast provided. The shower head was a joke on top of it all. The place needs a serious update. We are so thankful that we were only there for one night.
To be fair, the room was a good size, mattresses were comfortable, staff was friendly and accommodating.
The bad definitely outweighed the good and we will never stay at this resort again.
We gather in the hotel bar with friends every Friday night for Happy Hour. Very nice atmosphere and service,as well as a nice pub food menu. Great apres ski spot during the season. Can be v-crowded with big conferences are booked and peak ski season.
We came for some easy hiking and some peace and quiet. One can choose from plenty of nice hikes nearby. Even walking the paved paths on the extended property was nice. The evenings were quiet. Hammering, saws, and the beeping of trucks backing up dispelled any quiet during the day, but I can't really fault them for keeping the place up.
This is a well-maintained older property. The lodge was built almost 60 years ago, though, and it is a little dated. It's in that in-between age where it is neither up-to-date nor a charming reminder of the past. I don't see it maturing into a classic old hotel ala Bolderado as its functional, straightforward 1960s design has neither quaint quirks nor grandeur.
I’m not sure it was worth $245/night with resort fee and taxes.
It is part of a larger complex with a lake and it looks like they offer plenty of winter activities. At the beginning of June, though, it was pretty dead. I didn't expect a bustling hive of activity, but I wonder whether the staff outnumbered the guests.
We were not there in the snow season. The area is very pretty. The hotel is centrally located. The food and service are very good. We had terrific experience with the bartender on duty while we were there, a NY transplant. With a rental car, we toured the surrounding towns. Had a ball.
Stayed here for a conference. Fire alarm went off at 4:30 a.m. and had to get out of room and stand outside for 30 minutes. Staff did not come around the back where a lot of guest where standing to let us know what was going on or when we could go back into our rooms. It was cold and snow on the ground. The fire alarm went off two more times after this. No information from the staff at all. Very upsetting! The room was just a standard hotel room and had nothing special. If asked to stay again I would say NO!
