Please ignore the average response time indicated on this web site. While in Europe May & June 2017, VRBO automatically changed my Holiday Season rental rates to the summer rates. Understandably I started receiving inquires for the Christmas Holidays. However VRBO's system did not allow me to access their system from Europe & I could not to respond to their inquiries. Finally I was able to call VRBO and they contacted the inquirers and explained the situation. However my average response time disintegrated from hours to days. And they continue to tell me that they can't correct the issue.

About Craig Schaefer

I started skiing at age 5 in New England, ski bummed in Aspen the first year Snowmass was open, and two years later spent the winter of 1969-1970 in Chamonix & Innsbruck, back when Europe cost $5 a day.

I then got tied down to a software business in Denver until retiring 8 years ago.

Craig Schaefer purchased this condo in 1999

Why Craig Schaefer chose Silverthorne

Beautiful location and wonderful access to 7 major ski areas: Loveland, A-Basin, Breckenridge, Keystone, Copper Mtn., Vail and Beaver Creek.

I originally bought the condo as an investment, but I immediately bonded to the location, the skiing, the hiking, the accessibility from Denver and the unit itself. My plan was to sell it after 10 years, but it's been 18 years now and I am more attached to it than ever.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this condo many times over the last several years and have enjoyed it each and every time. The view is wonderful, the condo is spacious, and the hot tubs are great for soaking after a long hike or day on the mountain.

Great property and value

  • 5 of 5

We spent New Year's at the condo and had a great time. The property is well situated at the top of a hill in Silverthorne offering a fantastic view. It was easy to get to, even in snowy conditions without 4-wheel drive. There is plenty of room, and with three bathrooms and in-house washer and dryer everyone was happy! The wireless internet was excellent and speedy. The kitchen was well stocked with everything to make eat-in meals. And the property is minutes from a variety of restaurants, bars, grocers and outlet stores. We skied Loveland, which was about a 15-minute drive. The condo is centrally located to allow access to multiple other ski areas as well. Craig is a gracious host who provided everything we needed for a great vacation. He communicated with us before and during the trip to ensure everything was good. I would highly recommend his condo.

NICE CONDO, NICE OWNER

  • 5 of 5

I rented this condo for my brother to stay in this summer while we were in another condo nearby. It was a good experience. The owner was especially flexible in working with us on the rental dates. The accommodations (3 BR plus the whole condo is very roomy) were very nice and perfect for a single dad and his two adult kids. Lots of extras are provided in the well-equipped kitchen and the washer/dryer is a real plus. We would recommend this unit to others or rent again if we are in the area.

Great view on a hilltop

  • 3 of 5

The lodge has a great view overlooking the mountaintop.

There are some points to note. The Internet connection is spotty and quite weak. The home is cluttered (ie a home used as a second home by the owner?), and there is a fishy nauseating smell coming from the drains that persisted no matter what we tried to do to help make it tolerable. We bought clorox and draino, but that did not help. The tv's are old and missing their remote. Nightstands are crate barrels turned upside down to support the tv's.

So over all, it is not a lluxury cabin to spend a long time at. It is a sparsely furnished place for one to shower and sleep after a day's hike...even though the sleeping part was a bit difficult because of the fishy smell permanating through the house.

Owner's Response: The renter, Vu , along with his wife, previewed the condo before reserving it. The review itself was written by Vu’s cousin Quynh.....RESPONSE.....I prepped the condo three days before their arrival and there was no fishy smell present. I returned to the condo around 1:30 PM on the day of their departure eight days later and there was no fishy smell present. I asked the contractor who replaced the dishwasher (see below) if he had detected any fishy smell, and his response was negative.....When the condo was prepped the dishwasher was run. When I returned to the condo the dishwasher would not run, requiring the purchase and installation of a new one..... There are two flat panel TVs in the condo, one of which was three weeks old when they arrived. The other two TVs are older. All TVs have remotes, and all remotes were placed next to, or on top of the TVs before their arrival. All remotes were present after their departure..... There are no “crate barrels” in the condo. One older large TV sits on top of two low plastic crates in a bedroom corner under a low sloping ceiling..... The WiFi is supplied by Resort Internet, and has seemed adequate for all prior renters, however they had some reports about the recent performance in our building, and just notified me that they have installed a new antenna..... Concerning the contradiction describing the condo as both sparsely furnished and cluttered, it is neither. The web site has always stated that the condo is furnished as a second home..... Their full security deposit and half of their cleaning fee was refunded prior to the posting of the cousin’s review..... Vu has sent an email concerning his cousin’s review, and ending with the following comment: “So overall, we simply have a difference in perception, and I thought the cousins' stay worked out comfortably”. .... Please excuse the lack of paragraphing, apparently this web site software does not allow it.

Great Getaway Choice!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this condo for three summers and plan to go again this summer. It is extremely clean, quiet, and well furnished. Having laundry facilities in the condo is a huge plus. Great access to all Summit County has to offer including two trailheads within short walking distance! Also a beautiful view for the days you just want to relax.

Ski Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this condo for a week to ski at Copper, Keystone and Breckenridge. The condo was close to all of the ski mountains and to lots of stores and restaurants. The condo is clean and we really enjoyed our stay. I would recommend this condo to anyone that wants to convenient place to ski out of.
