Description from owner

Dramatic mountain views frame lake Dillon across the street. Walk two blocks to the marina, stroll to downtown or hop the nearby bus to 4 ski resorts (Breckenridge, Keystone, Copper, Arapaho Basin, with Vail just a short drive away). This unique home is extremely high end with extraordinary quality at every turn.


This is a three floor home with the top two floors available for rent. While this listing is just for the middle floor, called Middle Earth, I also describe the Penthouse below only for your convenience (so you do not have to jump around between listings) to see if you want to add it for an extra charge. You can rent just the Penthouse, just Middle Earth, or both together as one Estate. They connect inside but also have outside entrances so can be completely private from one another. See the floor plan to see how it lays out!

Middle Earth listing is this one: #209874 Sleeps 10 at the very maximum.

Penthouse listing is: #209872 Sleeps 8 at the very maximum.

Both floors (Estate listing) is: #209873. Sleeps 18 at the very maximum.


The middle floor is for fun! It has its own entrance next to the hot tub. The master bedroom is huge and gorgeous, overlooking the lake, with a king bed, private dressing room with laundry, and private full bath. The guest bedroom has a queen bed and a bit of a lake view as well, with a beautiful bathroom right outside the door, shared with the main room. There is a sun room that doubles as a third bedroom with a double futon couch that folds out to sleep two, and a single bunk above it with a stairway to the bunk (no climbing a ladder). That sunroom also has a couch that could sleep one, and is also a game room with Foosball, toys and a very big dining table of Brazilian Rosewood that seats 10 in new leather chairs. The sun room has a balcony on one side and the main entrance deck with hot tub and gas grill on the other side.

The main living room has a very large TV, stereo, extensive video library, games and super comfy couches, one of which folds out to a queen bed. It also has a wet bar and coffee bar.

The kitchen has stainless steel quality: Refrigerator, dishwasher, gas stove, microwave oven, toaster oven and all plates, utensils, cooking equipment and some condiments. It also comes with a private garage space, with plenty of parking outside as well.

come nestle into Middle Earth!


THE PERNTHIUS IS A SEPARATE RENTAL, DESCRIBED HERE ONLY TO SHOW YOU WHAT YOU CAN ADD FOR AN EXTRA CHARGE. TO ADD THE PENTHOUSE, TALK TO OWNER OR GO TO 209872 to rent only the Penthouse (sleeps 8 MAX), or to 209873 to rent both floors together (sleeps 18 MAX).

If you need more space, or just want to upgrade from gorgeous to spectacular, then step into the Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous and add the Penthouse! Take the long drive up to the grand entrance with a seasonal water fountain and lush landscaping, opening to cathedral ceilings, original artwork, and stunning slate and knotty pine floors. A super-gourmet, fully-equipped kitchen with a massive granite counter and island, 6-burner stove and double oven to bring out your inner chef. The living room has a huge rock fireplace and massive flat screen TV, all overlooking the lake and mountains. A large deck with massive outdoor dining table and stainless steel gas grill for you outdoor cooks. The dining room table is a one-of-a-kind art piece cut from a giant hollow log. The master bedroom, also with a lake view and fireplace, has WOW all over it with a master bath to die for: double-nozzle steam shower with side jets made for two (or six), Jacuzzi tub and walk in dressing room. The stone finishes are gorgeous. The second bedroom has two bunk beds and a trundle all of solid tree beams. Very cool. Park in the roomy garage and walk directly into floor-heated rooms that are oh-so-nice on snowy days. Sleeps 5 in two private rooms, 2 more on a fold-out couch, with an extra couch on the side, so 8 at the very maximum, but far more comfortable with 5. It connects with 'Middle Earth' via inside stairway, though Middle Earth also has an outside entrance for those who want a bit more privacy or separation between those in your group.

Check-in at 4:00 pm. Check-out at 10:00 am. Call if you need something else and we will try to accommodate.

Beds: 1 King Bed, 1 Queen Bed, 1 Double Bed, 1 Twin Bed, 1 Sofa Bed

Owner Supplied Testimonials

FROM OWNER: As I am new to this site, I have posted testimonials from the "other vacations rental place" below. Please check out listing 209873 as some of these are for the entire estate.

Great location! Beautiful home, landscaping, and views!

Awesome Family Reunion with 2 families ages 1-87!!!

This house was perfect for our 2 families to reunite for a full week! We had 18 people in our group starting from 1 years old and up to 87 years old! The 3 levels allowed us to have our space as well. The Top "Penthouse" level was by far the most luxurious and was the meeting place for everyone to hang out. We love to cook and was very impressed by the amenities in the penthouse kitchen. They had Pyrex bowls, pie pans, food processor, blender, you name it. Most Vacation rentals do not have all these amenities.

The Middle earth was a great level for the family with the young kids to stay at. The sun room makes for a great play room and they even had kids toys already there! The living room on this level also can be very dark if you shut the curtains and makes for great movie watching and napping.

The bottom level is great for an adult who wants to get away from all the craziness on the top 2 floors. The only thing I would make sure is that the person staying on that level is ok with climbing stairs as it has quite a few stairs to get up to the Penthouse level.

Overall this house was perfect for a large family. There is enough room for everyone to hang out and have fun on the penthouse level, but also allows for space for people to get away from their family too. :)

As far as location, it was great! In the 7 days we made multiple day trips driving all over Colorado. We also enjoyed just walking to the town of Dillon and the kids played at the playground overlooking the lake. Very cute town!

The owner of the home was very accessible and available to help us with anything we needed, which was great as well!

The home was partially rented by another party. However, we had our own entrances and the condition of the home was great!


My husband and I stayed at this lovely property for three days to catch up with family in the area. We loved the location just off the bike path around the lake. We enjoyed several activities including a Friday night concert in town and a local restaurant; picked up some treats at the craft/arts fair in Dillon. It's also a great location if you are taking the ferry from Breckenridge to Dillon; we were able to walk home and relax on the deck after an enjoyable day. There are several hiking trails nearby too for hikers of all levels. This place is perfect for a couple, or friends who are looking for a central place to gather in all seasons-so much to do. The owner was very accommodating. We hope to come back!


What a great house. We arrived never having been to Dillon, or knowing what to expect. Not only was our level expertly appointed, the beds were very comfortable, the views spectacular, and access to Dillon Lake, nearby restaurants and farmers markets and biking trails unequaled, but it was wonderful situated amidst every major ski resort and numerous hiking trails within an easy drive to the charming areas of Breckinridge, Frisco, and Copper Mountain, where we enjoyed a free outdoor show.

This is lovely and relaxing property -- the perfect antithesis of for the hustle-bustle of our east coast big city environs. Lots of comfortable deck space, a fully functioning kitchen, wide screen TV (which we did not watch - why do that when you enjoy such a terrific environment?), and lots of other amenities. Rooms were spacious. There was nothing not to like, and there's lots of flexibility if your party is small (like ours) or large. The owner has thought of everything.

While I was here during the late summer, I would especially enjoy coming back here for a week or two for skiing this winter. Such a terrific location for best skiing the area can provide. Dillon itself is a lovely community -- you can almost walk to numerous charming restaurants. There was always something going on nearby.

Highly recommended, and a great value, winter or summer.


I stayed at this magnificent home for 3 days, and was continuously astonished at how amazing it was. The penthouse has beautiful views of Lake Dillon, a huge deck, lovely furniture and a chef's kitchen. Everything from the furnishings, to the linens to the art work were premium quality and plush. The owner was friendly, accommodating and fair; very easy to deal with. Not sure why anyone would give this place anything less than 5 stars, it exceeded every expectation we had. Tip: visit the marina just across the street and grab a drink at their dockside bar! Fun and close.

What a gorgeous place! Thanks so much for making sure we had everything and even sending that adorable neighbor boy over to check on us, and leaving all the tourist material for us to check out the many activities. Very thoughtful. The best was the block walk to the marina (I LOVE the Tiki bar) and amphitheater. Great free concert, and we could drink and walk home. Yay! I could not believe how close you are to everything. Having bicycles there is a great touch. We rode them along the bike path to Frisco, had breakfast, and took the water taxi back right to the marina. So fun! The new big bed in the guest room is fantastic, so thank you for rushing to get it in for us. I can see the kitchen will be done imminently, but we actually did not lack for anything, so we will definitely be back to check out ski season since you are a block from the ski shuttle.
