Location, Location, Location
We’ve already shared with you how excited we are to be finally building our beautiful new development, The New Seasons at Keystone, but we wanted to share why it might be the ideal location for you. If you are looking for a weekend getaway from the traffic and frenzied pace of the Denver Front Range, The New Seasons at Keystone, is the answer for you.
If you’ve never been to Keystone, Colorado, you are truly missing out (#coloradosbestkeptsecret)! It’s a lovely spot that sits just under Loveland Pass and the Continental Divide, with towering mountains surrounding the valley and the Snake River winding peacefully down the middle. You’ll find plentiful moose and deer, along with occasional elk, marmots, beavers and black bears roaming the ponds and meadows. We can’t imagine a more peaceful and idyllic setting to kick back and relax or have fun with your family. The New Seasons at Keystone sits amid evergreens on a bank, just above the bubbling Snake River with paved recreation trails leading out in every direction.
For skiers and riders, it’s a perfect location. Keystone Ski Resort has a great mix of terrain for everyone. Beginners can find easy green runs on Dercum Mountain, with several magic carpets sprinkled around both base areas. Corduroy cruisers will find lots of long, blue groomers on Dercum, North Peak and Outback. For those who want a challenge, get ready to burn those quads on the top-to-bottom moguls off North Peak and find hidden powder stashes in the trees on Outback (#localssecret). Keystone Resort’s Mountain House base area is just a short 15-minute walk or 2-minute shuttle ride away (because really, who wants to walk in ski boots?). If you want a change of scenery, Arapahoe Basin is just 6 miles up the road and Loveland, Breckenridge and Copper Mountain are a quick drive away. From The New Seasons at Keystone, nordic skiers can ski right out the back door and head to the Keystone Nordic Center.
In Summit County, we all came for the winter, but we stay here for the summers. Keystone is a Mecca for hikers and bikers. The resort has some of the best lift-accessed downhill mountain biking in the United States, with challenging features and steep descents. If you prefer paved riding or running, the Summit County recreation path system runs right around The New Seasons at Keystone complex. The rec path runs from Keystone, around Lake Dillon and throughout Summit County: over 55 miles in all. If you prefer your feet to pedals, hiking trails are abundant in Keystone. From The New Seasons at Keystone, it’s just a short stroll to Keystone Gulch. Peru Creek is also nearby and full of trails to old mining ruins and rocky peaks. And of course, don’t forget hiking on Dercum Mountain in the summer. The trails are carpeted with wildflowers like lupine, indian paintbrush and arrowleaf balsamroot.
Need a break from all that hiking and biking? Hit the links at the River Course or the Ranch Course at Keystone. The golf courses weave in and out of pines and spruce trees along the banks of the Snake River and the views of Buffalo mountain are fantastic. If you prefer to spend an afternoon on the river, you can fly fish for brook trout and rainbow trout. With miles of fishing on the Snake, as well as several Gold Medal fishing waters nearby in Summit County, you can cast your line from dawn ‘till dusk, never hitting the same hole twice. For the adventurous, there’s excellent 4x4ing and historic sites just up the road in Montezuma. For a family afternoon, take the kids and walk 2-minutes to Keystone Lake and cool off with the local ducks on a stand-up paddleboard.
If you love #wineoclock, #beerlife, #bacon, bluegrass or jazz, you can also take a short stroll from The New Seasons at Keystone, along the river to River Run Village for one of the many music and food festivals that Keystone hosts in the summer. Did we mention they are FREE!? (#freeisthebestprice)
Kids will find that The New Seasons at Keystone is the perfect spot too, with the Keystone Science School just a short walk away. They run awesome “Science, Adventure, FUN!”-themed day camps, overnight programs and wilderness programs all summer long for kids aged 5-17. Conveniently, the Keystone Stables are right next to the Science School, so you can head out for an afternoon trail ride, or catch a chuck wagon dinner with the whole family. Keystone Ski Resort is known for its ultra kid-friendly atmosphere, with free kids activities almost every day and even free cookies after a day of skiing. Keystone is a wonderful place for kids, where they will be able to explore all that Colorado has to offer, just by walking out the door.
The New Seasons at Keystone really is the perfect place for every season. From outdoor recreation, to fun events, wildlife, natural beauty and a laid-back pace, Keystone, Colorado, is an amazing place to visit, raise a family or live your best life. There’s no traffic to speak of, wildlife crossings galore, and it’s easy to slow down the pace and enjoy a cup of coffee while soaking in the fantastic views. Real estate is all about “location, location, location” and this is a place that can’t be beat! We hope you will join us on the banks of the Snake River as we build the home of your Colorado mountain dreams at The New Seasons at Keystone.
