Summit CountySummit County Lake/River/Creek Property
Every town and resort offers Summit County lake, river and creek property; it's just a matter of whether you prefer living near a vast, calm lake or a babbling creek or river.
The largest body of water in Summit County is the Dillon Reservoir, or Lake Dillon as it's known. The lake is 3,233 acres large, and it offers about 26 miles of shoreline, stretching from Dillon, around Frisco, to Farmer's Korner, which is on the way to Breckenridge. Read more
Properties range in size, from studio condos to multiple bedrooms, as well as in price and age. But no matter where you live along Lake Dillon, your mountain property will offer private decks or patios, where you can soak in sunlight as you watch sailboats glide across the vast sparkling water. Homes and condos across from Highway 6 also overlook Lake Dillon, giving homeowners dazzling and expansive views of the serene lake.
One of the most prestigious locations for lake real estate is just past the town of Dillon, in a subdivision called Summerwood. Here, a handful of distinctive homes sit perched high on a cliff, overlooking a secluded finger of the lake.
In addition to lake-front living, there are plenty of Frisco condominiums, duplexes and single-family homes that border Ten Mile Creek, which runs near Main Street. Miner's Creek, in the forested and well-established Bill's Ranch community, provides another opportunity for refreshing living.
The beauty of Frisco creek living is that when homeowners open their windows, they can hear the water running over smooth boulders, and as they sit on their decks, their bodies naturally relax as they watch water simply flowing downstream. In the winter, the creeks transform into a picturesque mountain scene, with water trickling through ice and piles of snow.
In the summer, Keystone Lake becomes a peaceful respite. Lakeside Village offers condominiums with amazing views of the lake and ski area, but perhaps the best part is how close the homes are to Keystone's award-winning fine dining restaurants and casual eateries.
The Snake River meanders through Keystone real estate, comprised of luxury single-family homes and beautiful town homes. Miles of hiking and biking trails wind alongside wetlands, where homeowners can spot beavers and plenty of other wildlife. Large, distinctive homes in East Keystone give homeowners a private feel, with wooded forests and a flowing river right outside their door.
The famous Blue River runs through Breckenridge, between Main Street and the ski area, but it also flows beside in-town properties, as well as those in the small town of Blue River, south of Breckenridge.
Silverthorne real estate also includes newer townhomes and single-family homes built along private fishing ponds. Golf course properties overlook small water holes and ponds as well.
Each town has its own personality, and the good news is that rivers, ponds and lakes abound in Summit County.
