ANNA'S TIPS ON WHERE TO STAY... The area has a number of options depending on your needs. Below is Anna’s very own condo, along with a couple of other suggestions. Should those all be booked up drop her a line and let her know. She'll certainly try to lend a helping hand by offering some tips to make your search easier! Anna’s Very Own... Enjoy the amazing mountain view, while sitting cozily by the fireplace. Located at the top of Wildernest, in Silverthorne, CO, this is a comfortable 3 bed, 3 bath condo for 8 guests to relax. Swim in the clubhouse pool or soak in the hot tubs. Quiet, with one of the best panoramic views in Summit County, yet within 20 minutes' drive of world class skiing. For more information please refer to Anna's website... Anna Suggests Frisco Inn on Galena... A friendly family-operated European-style B&B hotel in downtown Frisco. Well recommended if you are looking for a full-service mountain experience as opposed to a home rental experience. They fix the breakfast so you don't have to! Remodeled and redecorated in 2010, the Inn has 15 rooms, with stunning mountain views, WiFi, TV, and other modern amenities. For more information please refer to the Frisco Inn website... Anna Suggests Timber Ridge 321... This cozy 3 bedroom 3 bathroom home sleeps 9. Sit by the fire and enjoy the panoramic view. Head over to the clubhouse to play a game of pool, soak in the hot tubs or swim in the pool. Easy driving distance to Keystone, Copper Mountain, Breckenridge, Loveland Ski Area and Arapahoe Basin. For more information please refer to Timber Ridge VRBO listing... ANNA'S AREA Practicalities Winter Driving... Summit Stage Bus... Groceries... There is a lot of snowfall here in the winter, often very heavy. The Colorado Dept of Transportation and local governments do a great job with road maintenance, but still when there is a blizzard there will be snow and ice on the roads. Slow down, take it easy and you'll be fine. As usual, common sense should prevail! The Summit Stage is the free bus system. It's much quicker to have your own transportation, but you (or your teenagers) can get around the county on the Summit Stage as well. It can be fun to take the bus into Breckenridge or Frisco to have dinner out without needing to drive there yourself. The closest and least expensive grocery store is the City Market in Dillon. This is a Kroger owned chain. Safeway and Whole Foods are located in Frisco. Staple items can also be picked up at Target in Silverthorne, or from Walmart in Frisco. Don't worry about finding your favorite ingredients.
