Outdoor Pool at a Dakota Lodge at Keystone Mountain Resort

Keystone Resort in Colorado is packed with amazing things to do, and when you want to chill out for a bit, a hotel with a pool is a great option. You can’t spend every waking minute on the ski hill, so it’s worth looking for Keystone hotels with indoor pools or heated outdoor ones. If you’ve been skiing all day, this could be the ideal way to wind down in the evening and ease those muscles. 

Here are some of the best hotels, condos, and vacation rentals with pools in Keystone: 

Keystone Lodge and Spa 

In addition to the outdoor pool, this Keystone hotel has a top-notch spa. This Lakeside location provides incredible views and is available year-round. The outdoor hot tub and heated pool connect indoors through an in-water passageway. The sauna, steam room, indoor hot-tub, fitness center, and locker rooms are all available in the Spa and are at no extra cost to Keystone Lodge & Spa guests. Water sports rentals are available in the summer on the lake, with ice skating in the winter. 

Dakota Lodge 

River Run Village is Keystone’s little village that features eats and treats and plenty of fun activities. Dakota Lodge is located right in the middle of the village, so you can easily access all the amenities town has to offer. Dakota Lodge’s pool is outdoors and heated, with a wonderful view of Keystone Mountain. 

This pool is the largest year-round heated pool found at Keystone Resort. If you get tired of swimming, you can relax your aching body in one of two giant hot tubs next to it. 

The Timbers 

Tucked away by River Run, The Timbers is luxurious and comfortable. The condos are quite nice, even if you don’t plan to spend much time there. Instead, you’ll be out skiing, snowboarding, and enjoying the slopes and the village. However, if you want to stay in, grills and fire pits will help you relax, as well as an indoor/outdoor pool. The pool may not be huge, but it’s perfect for a quick dip or some relaxing fun with the kids. Warm up in the hot tub after swimming, or head for your private space, where you’ll find a fireplace. 

Arapahoe Ski Lodge 

Cozy and small, with just 11 rooms, Arapahoe Ski Lodge offers everything you need for a comfortable stay by the slopes. There’s a shuttle to take you to the ski area, and the rustic-style lodge is comfortable. However, it’s the amenities that shine here, including a spa, sauna, and heated pool for you to take a dip. Enjoy a home-cooked meal once you’re done swimming and settle down to chat with friends in front of the large fireplace. 

Gateway Mountain Lodge 

Set neatly in a forested area of the slopes, the Gateway Mountain Lodge offers various-sized rooms for your needs. You can catch a shuttle to the lifts and other resort amenities, but this lodge is near River Run Village and the Mountain Base Area, making it simple to enjoy yourself while you’re here. 

The pool is available to all guests and lets you relax or get in a little more exercise if you’re done with skiing for the day. You could even spend a day in the lodge, enjoying the amenities. 

The Springs 

The Springs offers entire condos for your stay. This Keystone lodging option is ideal for guests who need a bit more room. The condominium also provides plenty of amenities and is well known for its amazing pool area. Here you’ll find a rounded pool with a waterfall and slide for the kids (and young at heart). Two large hot tubs are nearby to enjoy the scenery or watch the kids splash in the pool while you soak away the day at this Keystone pool. 

Expedition Station 

This lodging option is located in River Run Village, where you can easily walk to the lift, ski school, or any number of dining options. It’s pretty close to the River Run Gondola and Summit High-Speed Quad, as well as many of the events that occur in the area. However, if you are in the mood for a swim, your stay at the Expedition Station includes access to the River Run Village pool.  

Jackpine & Black Bear Condominiums 

These comfortable homes are available for multiple people and are right next to the River Run Gondola. With all the amenities of River Run Village right at your doorstep, the Jackpine & Black Bear Condominiums are a good alternative to a hotel. 

Red Hawk Townhomes 

Another option with a shared pool and plenty of quiet solitude is a townhome in Red Hawk Townhomes. It’s near the edge of the village, so you’ll be a little further away from the hustle and bustle. 

Forest Condominiums 

A unique place to stay, the Forest Condominiums are set back in the forest and requires a shuttle to get to the rest of the resort amenities. However, it’s well worth it for the peace and quiet and the pool with fewer people using it. 


Keystone has plenty of indoor pools or heated outdoor pools to choose from. You can soak sore muscles, cannon-ball in the deep end, and experience life in the fresh mountain air. The views around the Keystone Resort are breathtaking and well worth the trip. You'll find plenty of lodging choices at Keystone with and without pools, as well as their other amenities here
