A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

imag0921We were invited to a wedding of an old friend and headed out to Keystone, CO over the July 4th weekend. If you’ll remember, we were expecting a hurricane. Our jetBlue flight was delayed leaving, and with the altered flight plan to avoid the storm, it was a long night. Once we arrived at the airport it was an almost 2 hour drive to the hotel. We ended up getting in around 4am EST (if you think these photos are blurry, you should have seen what my eyes looked like). Having worked all day, it made for a long night. Keystone Resort covers a large stretch of highway and there are small village areas along the road. We stayed in River Run as it was closest to all of the wedding festivities. The guests of the wedding stayed in all different areas which was surprising. We stayed in Red Hawk, just steps from the gondola that would take us up to the site of the ceremony and reception. They have underground parking and laundry on every floor. We chose the 1 bedroom style condo – they also have a studio option with a Murphy bed.

imag0922The bedroom was a little dated with it’s floral bedspread and the tube tv in the wall.

imag0923There was a gas fireplace in the living room which was a nice touch. There was no air conditioning in the condo, which at times made it a little warm inside.

imag0924The living room was spacious and a sliding glass door led out to the small balcony.

imag0925Because the space was a condo there is no cleaning during your stay. Guests are expected to bring trash and recycling to the garage to empty into larger bins.

imag0927Each unit features a kitchenette, but we weren’t in the room long enough to utilize it.

imag0931Each morning we headed over to the main hotel in Lakeside village for breakfast. There is ample complimentary parking across the highway for people who don’t want to pay for the valet with an underground walkway to get to the hotel. The views at the hotel are amazing. There is a deli where you can grab a quick egg sandwich for breakfast or a sit down restaurant where you can have a leisurely meal by the lake.

IMG_3048There are a good amount of hiking and biking trails around the lake.

imag0933Prefer a water sport? They have stand up paddle boarding, kayaks and paddle boards.

IMG_3060The resort was crowded for the holiday weekend. Lots of families with small children and lots of people with their dogs!

IMG_3052The weather in CO wasn’t as warm as you would think. It was in the low 70’s during the day and in the 50-60’s in the evening. Make sure to pack a sweater for the evenings.
