The ideal location for your fun filled family reunion, for an incredible destination wedding, for a memorable anniversary celebration that’s perfect for all generations of guests, or for any of the numerous types of corporate gatherings that thrive in a relaxed mountain atmosphere. We have also had numerous church groups of adults and youngsters alike that just loved the wilderness serenity along with the convenience of nearby shopping and activities accessible by the free shuttle service which stops 50 ft from the lodges.

Set in the woods in a residential area that borders on miles and miles of wilderness trails in the White River National Forest, our finely appointed rustic homes are only minutes away from some of the finest activities in the Rocky Mountains for summer and winter sports enthusiasts, art lovers, and shoppers. Panoramic views of Lake Dillon and the surrounding mountains of the Gore Range are everywhere you look! A large outdoor hot tub/spa with wrap-around deck has just been added for the perfect place to unwind and talk about your adventure filled days. In addition, the lodge is only 2 miles from dozens of Outlet mall shops!

Additionally, our two new, more rustic Riverside Lodges, East and West, sleep 72 more, for a total of 112 guests – all within one mile of each other.

March 2011 Midwest Gathering in the Rockies

16 May

We have been to the Summit Peak Lodges twice now and absolutely love the lodges and how conveniently located they are to all of the major ski resorts.  The lodges are very comfortable, the amenities are all there, and the hot tub after a full day of skiing is something I really look forward to.  I would recommend to groups, families with children, or even just a few couples.  There is plenty of room.

“We came up from Denver for the weekend in a group of 4 families with young children and stayed at Riverside Lodge and had a great stay!  The lodge is comfortable, well-equipped and in an ideal location — next to the rivers, across the street from the Rec Center and the playground and close to dining and shopping.  We’ll definitely be back again next year!

Riverside Lodge is born!

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.

Super Bowl weekend is a great time to ski. For the past 25 years I have belonged to a group of 12 guys that have headed to the mountains for friendship and skiing. It has not always been easy to find a house big enough for 12 of us and having 12 separate beds. We have been going to Summit Peaks lodge for the last 8 years. It has a great location with its proximity to many different ski hills. The spacious living space is ideal for a large group. Several in our group enjoy cooking and we are able to utilize the well equipped kitchen for the production of great meals from chili to standing rib roasts. The table is big enough to seat all of us. Prior to finding this house we had tried others. Every one of us has stated that this is the preferred place to stay. The comment I hear the most it that its layout contributes the camaraderie and the overall fun experience. I highly recommend the facility as the owners make it simple and are flexible in booking your dates. Great value for you dollars.

Best Regards,

We had a once in a life time stay at Summit Peaks. We especially enjoyed accessing the National Forest from the back yard! Our friendly Red Fox visited each morning and we heard there was a resident Moose, but never saw him/her! Our favorite activity was hiking in Wildflower Basin at 11,000 feet above sea level and it was only 15 minutes away from Summit peaks! The next best were the summer festivals at each of the resorts!

Thanks for the memories and we will be back!
