Choosing where to stay on your ski trip or summer vacation to Summit County Colorado is a two-prong question.

Second, in what area do you want to stay on your trip? Do you want to stay at a resort like Breckenridge, Keystone, Copper Mountain or in a nearby town, like Dillon, Frisco, or Silverthorne? There are several excellent choices in lodging and accommodations throughout the county.

There are different types of lodging and accommodations available. Choose the type that best fits in with what you want from your Colorado ski trip or summer vacation.

Ski-In Ski-Out Lodging and Accommodations

Ski-In Ski-Out

A ski-in ski-out rental provides the convenience of being directly on a ski slope. You can stop back at the rental for lunch or to add or subtract layers throughout the day as conditions change. These are some of the most coveted rentals at the ski areas. As such, they will usually cost more and they will be the first ones to be reserved.

Since there is no formal definition of "ski-in ski-out", each property management company has its own method of applying this term to their properties. When booking ski-in ski-out rentals, be sure to ask the right questions so that you are not disappointed when you arrive. Some ski-in ski-out rentals might be right on a ski slope and fit the definition of "ski-in ski-out" perfectly, but they might be some distance from town. In this case you are trading easy access to dining and entertainment for easy access to the ski slopes. Other properties might offer access to the slopes via an ungroomed and unmaintained path or via a pedestrian walkway. While these might not fit the ticket of being directly on a slope, they are still very convenient to the slopes and several of these will also be convenient to shopping, dining, and other activities.

If a grocery store is not convenient, we offer a grocery delivery service.


Condo Lodging and Accommodations


The condos were wonderful and everyone was very nice. I really appreciate your kind attention to detail and everything you did for us!

Condo rentals are a very amenable choice for lodging. The options abound in areas such as size, layout, price, location, and amenities. Whether you want a luxury ski-in-ski-out condo, or a condo in the center of the action, or an economical condo in one of the nearby towns, you will have many choices for rentals.

A condo will have a kitchen, allowing you to save some money by cooking meals at home. Most rentals will be just a short trip from a grocery store. If a grocery store is not convenient, we offer a grocery delivery service. Condos will have varying amenities, such as balconies and hot tubs, and a variety of price ranges.

Private Vacation Homes

Private Home

Vacation homes are a good rental choice for a large group. If you want to spend your trip in a ski-in-ski-out luxury home, be sure to see our ski-in ski-out advice.

Vacation home rentals provide privacy and room to spread out. There will be full-size kitchens, full-size bathrooms, and private bedrooms. You may choose from slopeside homes, to homes in the center of town, to secluded retreats. If your rental is not convenient to a grocery store, we offer a grocery delivery service.

Hotel Lodging and Accommodations


This is probably the simplest lodging available. You could choose to spend your trip staying at a resort hotel, or at one of many other hotels in the county.

Some hotels provide a continental breakfast, but you would likely be eating every meal out. Fortunately, we offer advice on Where To Eat.


Bed and Breakfast Lodging and Accommodations

Bed and Breakfast

Bed and Breakfast accomodations provide a romantic and laid back setting. Most of these will be in older, often historic, buildings that have been exquisitely maintained to provide a rustic, yet comfortable, environment. You won't have to worry about going out to have breakfast before you begin your busy day. Many of these also provide afternoon tea or hot chocolate and snacks.
