Riverside Lodge is born!

05 Apr

Summit County, CO Colorado

SILVERTHORNE – When Tamara Goodenbour walked into the former Alpen Hutte Lodge in Silverthorne last month for an annual Summit Dharma Center retreat, she was in awe over the transformation.

“Oh, I was floored. They totally re-did it, it looks so good,” Goodenbour said. “Before it was a lot of unnecessary stuff everywhere. Everything was disorderly and stacked up. It sort of reminded me of like an old fraternity house.” The lodge – renamed Riverside Lodge by new owner Brad Foreman – has been undergoing renovations for the past six months in an effort to change the 20-year-old hostel’s run-down image.

“What we’re trying to do is offer Summit County still an economical alternative for housing, but one that is clean, healthy and safe,” Foreman said.

Peak Investments, LLC – the company owned by Foreman and a partner – purchased the lodge for $1.315 million in late April, and has poured thousands of dollars into a facelift that includes new carpets, fresh paint and updated electronics in two large livings rooms, a handicap-accessible bathroom and two kitchens on the first level.

“The whole bottom floor was redone from tiles on the floor to the texture on the walls, plus we have artwork now,” said James Adams, of Vacation Rentals, who manages the property.

Renovations also included outfitting the kitchen with modern appliances, new countertops, tile floors, cooking utensils and pots and pans, and adding a second full-sized kitchen for guests of the lodge, which sleeps about 70 people.

All the beds in the lodge were also given new sheets and blankets.
Foreman is hoping the revamped Lodge will attract large groups, such as church groups, people in town for a family reunion or wedding, or perhaps ski teams in the county for training.

The lodge is also available to drop-ins – a bed in one of the dorm-style rooms runs about $25 to $30 a night – but in keeping with Foreman’s effort to attract more of a family-oriented crowd, guests must now sign a contract saying they won’t have drugs on the property or be intoxicated.

In the past, the Alpen Hutte had a reputation for allowing unhealthy conduct such as public intoxication and drug use, Foreman said,

Now, if guests do not abide by Foreman’s strict zero-tolerance policy, they will lose their deposit and be asked to leave.

Foreman envisions the Riverside Lodge developing a feel similar to Lodges in other countries that cater to cash-conscious travelers.

“What we tried to do is create that European thing where families could come cook their own meals and stay, save money and be safe, and it’s convenient,” he said.

Foreman’s philosophy also includes treating his guests right, a point Goodenbour didn’t miss during her recent stay.

“The new owners are very hospitable. It’s like what you’d expect from staying in a nice hotel, very customer service oriented,” Goodenbour said.

What are the Lodges outfitted with?

07 Mar

One of the favorite questions guests have before arriving at one of our Lodges is what do we need to bring? Well, we have tried to outfit our Lodges with all the conveniences of home so that you can spend your time with us building memories and not bothering with the problem of finding a cork-screw!

We provide all linens, towels and cleaning products. As a matter of fact if you’re with us a week of more you can pick up fresh linens mid-week if you desire. We know large groups often like to save by cooking family meals so we provide all the pots, pans and utensils that we could think of so you can prepare whatever you like.

Our family loves to Bar-B-que after a fun day of activities so we have charcoal grills for your use too.    All we ask is you bag the COLD ashes and put them in the dumpster so the animals don’t get into them. Yes, we have bears so ashes and all trash should be put in the dumpster daily to avoid problems!

A few years back a guest called me from the  lodge asking me what to do about the BIG bear on the porch…I explained that using the dumpster would eliminate the problem. Her comment to me was she thought I had been kidding about the bears!

Free shuttle as far as the eye can see!

Yes it is true you can travel from the front door of any of our four lodges and FREE shuttle and take a bus ride through out Summit County! That includes door to door service for Copper, Keystone, Breckenridge, and A-Basin resorts. It is so convenient if members of your group want to ski or hike a different mountain than others, no problem take the stage threre.

In the winter you can load your skies or board and in the summer you can load your Bike. One fun thing to do is load your bike and bus it to an up hill destination and then enjoy the ride back to the Lodge. Another is take your bike to one of the summer resort festivals (one every weekend of summer) and ride back after a day of fun and sun!
