Cozy ski-in/ski-out condo with a shared pool, hot tub, and easy lift access!

Calling all outdoor lovers! This charming Keystone condo is set just a short walk from the lifts, and has shared amenities like a sauna, hot tub, and pool.

The prime location puts you within a few steps of shopping, dining, and the gondola that will whisk you away to fun on the mountain. Enjoy skiing, hiking, and mountain biking without the hassle of getting in the car!

The rustic-meets-contemporary decor is a homey welcome as you step into your alpine getaway. Sink into the plush couch as you flip through the cable channels on the new flatscreen HDTV. Let the warmth of the gas fireplace fill the room as you connect to the WiFi to check the scores of all the games.

After taking a refreshing dip in the Dakota Lodge pool and soaking your stress away in either the shared hot tub or sauna downstairs near the lobby, take advantage of the grills and firepit in the community area. If it's too cold to cook outside, then the compact kitchen has everything you need to keep everyone fueled up. Set out some drinks on the breakfast bar, or dine around the beautiful wood dining room table.

When it's time to retire, this single bedroom, one-bathroom condo has room for up to four guests. Enjoy a rejuvenating night's sleep on the soft queen-size bed. For more room there is a sofabed.

Grab your morning cup of coffee or a delicious meal at the dining options across from your condo. It's a short walk to the the River Run Gondola or the Summit Express to hit the slopes on Keystone Mountain. Get the kids lessons at the Ski & Ride School while you brave the expert downhill runs that showcase the beauty of the ski area.

During the warmer months, the same lifts will take you to adventurous mountain biking trails. With the Snake River just 200 feet behind the building, you'll be able to enjoy fishing close at hand. Festivals like the Blue Ribbon Bacon Tour, the Jazz and Wine Festival, and the Blue Grass and Beer Festival make summer a busy time for all. Take advantage of the good weather by biking along the trail right behind the building that takes you all the way to Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, and more!

Back at your mountain escape you won't have to go far for dining and shopping. Downstairs you can enjoy a cold brew at the Kickapoo Tavern, or do some shopping at Gorsuch, North Face, Rockin' Ranch Trading Post, or Arriesgado Clothing Company. Access to the community washer/dryers will help you to look your best.

Fill your next vacation with snow-filled fun, sweeping views from the mountain trails, and memories that will last a lifetime when you book your stay at this Colorado retreat.

Excellent location. Cozy place
Ebby J. Mar 2020
Best thing about the condo is the location, especially for first timers. It’s right in the middle of river run village with access to all the amenities next door and near the gondola. Getting into the the room is unnecessarily complicated. When we called for help, we didn’t get a return call till the next day. Fortunately, we figured out how to get in. Condo had everything in it that we need; dishes, cooking utensils, pans and pots, coffee maker, blow dryer, and a gas fire place. Bed we not so comfortable but adequate. Overall it was a very functional condo and perfectly located, with underground parking as a plus
Manager response:
Hi Ebby, we are so glad you enjoyed the home! Thank you for sharing your feedback. We apologize for the frustration on arrival, but we are glad you were able to access the home without further assistance. We review our arrival information to ensure it is providing detailed and accurate directions for guests. We hope to host you again!
Laura M. Mar 2020
We really enjoyed the convenience to everything. The stairs down take you right out to the river run area where there’s coffee, restaurants, groceries, hot tub and about 100 steps away- the gondola. So lovely and cozy.
Mariem A. Feb 2020
Place was a great location on the mountain, right across river run ski school and a few min walk to the gondola. Only issue we ran into was no large pots to cook spaghetti so had to borrow one from a friends lodge nearby.
Manager response:
Thank you for telling us about your stay! The property manager has restocked the pots. We hope to see you again!
Rebecca D. Jan 2020
The condo was fine. It was clean and comfortable but had some wear like a broken closet door and cabinets that wouldn't stay shut. The location was about as close as you can get to the gondola in River run. Overall we had a nice stay here.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback! We made the manager aware of the closet door and cabinets for a resolution. We hope we can host you again soon!
Greg R. Jan 2020
Convenient and comfortable
Jolanta J. Dec 2019
Not much can spoil your stay when you have location like that! The best!
Jesse B. Sep 2019
I loved that it was walking distance to the lift and all the action
Amy O. Mar 2019
The lodge is a few minutes walk from the gondola and easy access to shops and restaurants. The unit was pretty comfortable, though the beds weren’t the best. It had all the other amenities you would need though and the hot tub was excellent after a day of skiing.
christopher C. Mar 2019
Unreal location, steps from the River Run gondola and directly across from the General Store! In the heart of it all and would stay there again in a heartbeat.
Marina Y. Oct 2018
A comfortable lodge, a sauna waiting for you, a hot tube and many other reasonable things plus intelligent service...
Lynda B. Sep 2018
Good size for 1 or 2 people. Convenient location near small grocery store. Room not as nicely kept up as some of the other places nearby but quite a bit less money. Especially considering how little time you spend in the room.
Jonathon R. Aug 2018
While the rental was adequate, management was unhelpful in answering questions about lack of A/C. Also, management was absent for check-in, and office was obscurely located, away from condos, with no directions to their location in any of the paperwork I received as a part of the booking. Want to vacation with Vacasa? Good luck!
Manager response:
We are sorry to read this. We provide clear check-in directions to our guests in an email, and the property manager's personal cell number is provided in that email as well. The office located right off the highway, not too far from the property, and after hours check-in procedures are clearly outlined in case the office closed at arrival. This home did not advertise air conditioning, and we apologize if this came as a surprise.
Robert M. Aug 2018
The management company was superb in dealing with with a glitch that occurred. They went the extra mile!
Jeremy L. Jul 2018
This was a really clean and comfortable home. The location is unbelievable - right in the middle of River Run.
Cyndi L. Jul 2018
Place was clean and comfortable.
Heidi M. Jun 2018
Perfect little condo for our family vacation. The home had everything we needed during our stay.
Daniel P. Jun 2018
Great shower
Clark F. May 2018
We were looking for a one bedroom with kitchen and living area. Black Bear Cutie filled the bill. We were there between seasons, so everything was pretty deserted, which we really liked. No crowds to fight. We were in the Keystone area for rest and relaxation as well as some hiking. It snowed around a foot of snow during our stay. Everything was so beautiful. After walking in the snow, we could come back to our comfortable living quarters.
Donald (Don) F. Mar 2018
The best part in my opinion is the closeness to the gondola. I can't imagine another place in the village that is closer. And the ski lockers exit conveniently to the walkway to the gondola. There is not much to the lobby area- TV. Fireplace, brocures...there is no counter with a person to ask questions for your needs, but this after all is a condo rental. The humidifier in our condo not working (so my throat was dry when sleeping) would be my biggest complaint. We enjoyed it and would recommend it and stay again.
Manager response:
We have replaced the humidifier and apologize it was broken for this stay. We hope to have these guests stay again!
Kalid H. Mar 2018
I'd stay there again!
Marianne M. Feb 2018
This was our second year staying here. The location is perfect, very close to the slopes.....we ate lunch back at the condo. Comfy bed, underground parking, close to shops and restaurants. We will be back next year!
Bryan M. Feb 2018
The condo was in a great location, in the heart of the River Run village. Close to the Gondola, rental equipment, restaurants and the general store. No reason to leave the resort, if you don’t want to. The Vacasa team was easy to deal with, very detailed and everything was just as communicated.
Daniel W. Jan 2018
Overall wonderful experience. Cant beat the location! Staff was friendly and helpful. Noisy neighbors but hopefully they're not owners and will be gone when you're there! 5/5*
James K. Jan 2018
This little condo was an awesome find in river run village. As close as you can possibly get to the gondola - just a minute or two walk, and smack in the heart of this gorgeous village, Starbucks and restaurants and bars just across the street. It’s just perfect.
Noemi W. Sep 2017
This condo is clean, well furnished, and in a great location. I would recommend to anyone wanting a getaway.
Nicole W. Sep 2017
My mom and I rented this for the weekend and it was so much fun! The location is great! The room was clean, and the instructions were very easy to understand! Thank you! :)
Julia M. Aug 2017
Great location! Vacasa had great communication throughout the process.
Cory S. Mar 2017
The accommodations and surroundings of the Black Bear were excellent. I would highly recommend and hope to visit again in the future.
Michael K. Mar 2017
We loved ease of access to the slopes. The gondola was a short walk out the door. Ski lockers very convenient.
RAFAL S. Mar 2017
Great place and awesome location. This condo have all basic amenities and I am looking forward to our next stay!
Darina B. Feb 2017
Condo location was very convenient to the gondola (5 min walk tops), and restaurants. It was the 1st time at Keystone & the mountain has something for everyone with convenient restrooms and warming huts. Since the condo was at the end of the hall it was pretty quiet & near the stairs to quickly walk one flight to the grocery & restaurants right below. Kitchen was small but functional. Bed was OK but an upgraded mattress would be a good change.
Donald F. Feb 2017
Comfortable for two adults and maybe two children.
Marianne M. Feb 2017
Location was the best, short walk to the gondo. Kitchen was very small, and the plates were up so high, i had to stand on a chair to reach them. Short person problems!
Denise L. Jan 2017
Property in need of refreshing and upkeep.
Lisa B. Jan 2017
Black Bear Cutie was in an ideal location for our family of skiers and was very comfortable for our three-night stay.
Ryan S. Dec 2016
Great condo/location/price!!! Will be back!
Mitzi B. Aug 2016
Wonderful place! Extremely comfortable & quite. Loved every minute of my stay.
Sarah P. Aug 2016
We enjoyed our stay.
Bill Y. Aug 2016
Centrally located in the ski village. A couple minutes from the gondola. Clean, Neat. Comfortable.
Danika M. Jul 2016
Really enjoyed our stay in Keystone. Unit was clean and well maintained. Kitchen had everything needed to cook and lots of restaurants close by. Great area to walk around. Close by to good hiking trails. Would definitely come back.
Dan G. Jul 2016
Convenient location right in the village
Catherine T. Jun 2016
Very happy with our choice to stay in the Black Bear Cutie - it had everything we were looking for and more. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a getaway in Keystone. It was very well maintained and had all the comforts of home.
Mandy M. May 2016
We really enjoyed our time at Black Bear 8045. The unit was very clean, comfortable, and well furnished. The location was great as it is only one floor from the stores and shops in the complex. The internet connection was very fast, and the cable TV was excellent. The washer and dryer for the floor was just down the hall and very convenient. We'd highly recommend this unit for a great stay in Keystone.
Julie M. May 2016
We stayed in the "Black Bear Cutie" for one night during low season. We had a wonderful time! It has one bedroom and a couch bed and sleeps four people. It was large enough and kind of done in a mountain style. The condo had some "dated" furnishings, like an older TV, and a stain on the carpet, but it did not matter because we were able to enjoy everything Keystone had to offer easily and quickly. The location is amazing! The hotel is so close to the lift, you can walk in just 3 minutes! We unitized the wonderful hot tub and sauna. The condo is directly in the ski village, so you can just go down the stairs and outside and you have food, drink, entertainment and everything else basically at your doorstep!

The condo was kind of like staying in a friends place. It was well furnished with pots and pans and things you'd need to cook and enjoy a stay for a long period of time. We bought our food and prepared it there, and we had everything we needed.

I would definitely recommend this place for anyone that wants to have a wonderful stay in Keystone! We hope to return during ski season and stay a week or two!

Thank you!
