Keystone has more than 1,600 lodging options in seven side-by-side “neighborhoods.” There are deluxe hotels and ski-in, ski-out condominiums (from studios through to four bedrooms, and in all price ranges), in bustling villages or quaint units tucked away in the forest.
Popular accommodations are in the River Run area at the base of the gondola, and in the more economical Forest Area. Wherever you choose, you are not more than several minutes from the slopes.
Keystone Lodge is top rated, with loft suites as well as hotel rooms all with mountain views. It’s in the US$325 to US$450 price bracket and is located on Keystone Lake, where winter ice skating is a must. Balconies are available, so ask at check-in. The Inn at Keystone is a less expensive six-story hotel with views of the mountain and valley, and is about five minutes’ walk from the base of the mountain. There are 3 outdoor hot tubs, and Razzberrys Restaurant is also located here. Both hotels are owned by
Keystone Resort and can be booked online at www.keystoneresort.com or by calling 800-427-8308. Also at the top end of the scale, the Ski Tip Bed and Breakfast was a stagecoach stop in the 1800s and the rooms come with massive stone fireplaces, antique furniture and many rustic charms, including one of Summit County’s finest restaurants.
