Summer Fun in Dillon, CO!

When we first thought about investing in a vacation rental property in Summit County we imagined that the popular rental “high” season would be during the snowy winter months.  Summit County is home to several world class ski resorts  and Keystone, Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, Arapahoe Ski Basin & Loveland ski resorts are all within a short drive from our condo. As we imagined, the winter ski season is a popular season for vacation rentals in our location.

Surprisingly, we found that the summer months in Dillon were just as popular (if not more so) than the winter months! Over time we realized that the summer dates were booking up in advance more than the winter dates (probably because winter sports enthusiasts wait for the first reports of snow before beginning to make their plans as well as folks planning their summer vacations months in advance.)

Because our condo is usually fully booked throughout the summer, we have to intentionally schedule time for ourselves if we want to enjoy it at all during this beautiful time of the year.  Our tradition has been to spend the week of the 4th of July holiday in Dillon.

Other than a quick jaunt up the mountain and one overnight stay in June (to enjoy the Air & Water Show over Lake Dillon) it had been a while since we were able to enjoy our condo overlooking Lake Dillon.  We still pinch ourselves every time we come because we can’t believe how blessed we are to be able to own this little bit of paradise!

Please enjoy some photos of the different scenery and activities that we enjoyed during our week in Dillon during our stay.  And if you are considering a summer visit to Dillon, CO don’t wait too long to book your lodging or you might be disappointed! 🙂
