Rent a studio, one bedroom, or two bedroom unit, decorated in the rustic but elegant mountain style that takes advantage of the beautiful pine of the area. With a fully equipped kitchen, fireplace and other amenities ready to go, you'll have all the comforts of home.
Some units even have balconies, which are great for watching the people below. If you're lucky, you can get a balcony over one of the concerts that come to town in summer!
River Run Village is the area in Keystone directly below the River Run Gondola. Ida Bell Drive and the Montezuma Parking Lot are the northern border, with Keystone Road and Montezuma Road forming the east and west boundaries.
The River Run area is open year-round, but the peak times of activity are in summer and winter.
Most of Keystone's main events take place in River Run in summer, which is why it's the best place to stay if you want to enjoy the Bluegrass and Beer Festival, the Wine, Jazz and Art Festival, or the Bavarian Beer Festival, in addition to many other fun events.
Winter enjoys a special hold over River Run Village, giving visitors the ability to walk out their hotel or condo and head directly to the gondola. Aprés-ski is a time-honored tradition, where live music and drink specials keep the crowds entertained while they relax their tired legs.
Parking can be a hassle at times, but most accommodations in the River Run Village provide parking for their guests.
For those just visiting the River Run Village for the day, the Montezuma and Pica parking lots are free of charge, as is Tenderfoot, where shuttle service brings visitors to the center village.
There are also a number of pay parking lots for $10/day, including Hunki Dori, Gold Bug and Porcupine which are close to the village center.
