Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How close to the Lake are we?
A: We are just steps to the water with unobstructed panoramic views. You can’t get any closer! There are really just two properties that are truly on Lake Dillon. Ours, Point Dillon, is one of them. Other properties claim that they are on the Lake but are buffered by trees, parking lots or a high bank hill. Our is not…we are right on the lake! That is one of the reasons why these are the finest lakefront condos in Summit County!
Q: How close is the bike path?
A: The extensive scenic paved Summit County bike/hike/roller blade/walking and running trail system that meanders around the lake and extends through the forest connecting Keystone, Dillon, Silverthorne, Frisco, Breckenridge, Copper and even Vail crosses our property along the lake. There are several local companies that rent bikes by the hour or day within a few blocks. This is an awesome way to enjoy the lake, the mountain and the outdoors!
Q: What is the address of the condo?
A: We are at Point Dillon, 413 West La Bonte Street, Dillon, Colorado 80435. (Mapquest.) The building is immediately off of Dillon Dam Road and adjacent to the Dam. You may find the location on MapQuest.com.

A: City Market, our local full service grocery store is just a couple blocks away.
Q: Is the building quiet or is it in the middle of town?

There are many more within minutes of our property. We have a dining guide in each condo for your convenience.

Q: Is it a gas or wood fireplace?
A: We converted the fireplace to gas for convenience, safety and ambiance. All you have to do is momentarily press the remote “start” button on the column next to the kitchen bar. The fire will ignite within a minute or so and provide you with that warm mountain atmosphere for two hours when it will automatically shut off. You may again press the start button to light it again.
Q: Do you have a BBQ?
A: We provide a beautiful stainless steel built-in BBQ on the spacious deck overlooking the lake. You must turn on the gas tank below, then turn on one of the burners on the BBQ and then drop in a match to manually light the gas grill. If the grill does not light immediately turn the burner knob to off and let the gas dissipate before reattempting a light.
Q: How do we check in? check out?
A: There is no “check in” per se. You will have access to the condo on or after 4 PM on your scheduled arrival day. Entry is keyless. You will be given a code for your stay which will allow access via the programmable electronic lock. You and your guests will use the electronic code during your stay each time you enter the condo. We will also give you a backup code to a realtor box which is located right next to the door in the unlikely event that the electronic lock fails. In that box is a conventional key. You will only need that key in the event that the electronic lock malfunctions. To “check out” simply turn off lights and appliances, gather your personal belongings and depart no later than 11 AM. Our cleaning crew arrives at 11 AM to prepare the condo for our next guest.
Q: What are the parking arrangements?
A: We have two assigned parking spots inside the garage on the lower level (P1) with elevator access. Additional outside parking is available as well on a first come first served basis.
Q: What floor is the condo on?
A: Our condo is on the 3rd floor of a small four floor building. The 3rd and 4th floor of our building have the most panoramic views overlooking the lake. There is elevator access to both the parking lot and garage as well as two stairwells to each floor.
Q: Is there a pool and/or hot tub? Is it private or community?
A: Yes, we have an indoor pool with changing rooms and bath rooms. In addition we have a hot tub with waterfall in an atrium area overlooking the snow capped mountains. Our building at Point Dillon is a very small property with only 32 condos. Most of them are owned by families for their own personal use, and only a handful are rented. Therefore, depending, it is more common than not to find no one else using them.
Q: How do we get into the parking garage? The pool and hot tub?
A: Once you enter the condo there will be signs with the spa/pool and garage door codes listed on them. Alternatively, you will be issued a code separate from the condo code that changes frequently and allows you access to the garage walk in door. The pool and hot tub door code is the same as your condo door code.
Q: Where is the garage, the pool and the hot tub?
A: The garage, the pool and the hot tub are all on the lower level P1. Parking spots inside the garage are assigned and are labeled on the wall. For the pool and hot tub, go down to P1 out the side door and across the very short walk to the pool door. Use the pool code to access the pool.
