Summit County Short Term Rental Overview

Unincorporated Summit County Short Term Rental Overview 

Summit County has adopted short term rental overlay zones to acknowledge the distinction between neighborhoods and resort communities.  If your property is located in the STR Resort Overlay Zone (which includes, Keystone, Copper Mountain, Tiger Run Resort, and unincorporated areas at the base of Peak 8 in Breckenridge), you will apply for a Resort License.  Resort Licenses have greater occupancy, allowances, and no restrictions on the number of nights rented.

Neighborhood Overlay Zones

The neighborhood resort overlay zone includes Buffalo Mountain, Dillon Valley, Heeney, Mesa Cortina, Peak 7, Silver Shekel, Summit Cove, and Wildernest. These areas now have three different types of licenses Type 1, Type 2, and Type 3 licenses. Occupancy is limited to two people per bedroom plus two people.  Most short term rental licenses will be a Type 2 License. 

​Type 2 License: Property owners can short term rent their property no more than 135 nights per year. For the rest of the year the property owner may use their property as they wish. For example, the property owner can long term rent their property.

For more details about the license types see section 3 of the Short Term Rental Ordinance. 

If your property is in the town limits of Breckenridge, Dillon, Frisco, or Silverthorne you will need to follow the rules and regulations of the appropriate town. Please keep in mind that some HOA’s may prohibit short term rentals regardless.
