What to get for the beauty-obsessed on your list.More
Summit County is a great place for history buffs looking for redone Victorian mining mansions–cum–bed-and-breakfasts and budget hunters who want affordable rooms close to the slopes. The county probably has the highest density of condominium units in the state. The competition tends to keep prices lower than in other resort towns. Note that staff at hotels in the region are sometimes young and
inexperienced, which may result in less-than-desirable service at some otherwise excellent properties. Also note that many accommodations do not have air-conditioning—beware that rooms with southern exposure warm up quickly. Summer nights, however, are often cool enough in the mountains that opening the windows will do the trick.
