We Purchased the Riverside East and west lodges in the spring of 2007. It was irresistible because it’s PERFECT location in the heart of Silverthone Colorado, winter paradise! Previously know as the Alpenhutte Lodge established in 1984 as a European bed and breakfast/ hostel. We thought the over 7000 sq. Ft 3 store lodge had an excellent location and renovation potential. So $200,000 and 3 months later our dream was transformed into reality! The cool thing is the over 200 foot of private Gold Metal Blue River run through our back yard!! It was fun to also invent an entirely new main level . We converted the dated space into 2 separated floors, each with their own gourmet kitchen and home theater rooms. The new Riverside now has the flexibility to sleep up to 36 in the West and 38 in the East for a combined total of 74 for the BIG groups. Both are loaded with a video library of 500 movies, free Internet and fireplace to warm you up! Guests get an exclusive discount at the 62K square foot rec center 100 yards from the lodge! In the mid west we would call this kind of place a water park, but out here all the tourist tax revenue buy some incredible facilities. Riverside most recently received the honor of International World Cup Ski Team accreditation. This mean you need to keep your eyes pealed when visiting, many famous skiers have frequented these parts!
