The most sought after lodging destination in Keystone. River Run Village, the newest base area resort, is located at the base of the River Run Gondola which means you are just steps away from hitting the slopes! These condos are actually made up of several buildings that are located in the River Run Village Neighborhood. You can walk from one end to the other in less than 5 minutes so no matter what building you are in, you are close to the Gondola. River Run Village is a hotspot for its location because of all the shops, restaurants, skating rink and nightlife located just steps from your front door! Each condo is equipped with a full kitchen to make breakfast or dinner. Choose from 1, 2 or 2 bedroom with a Murphy bed.
