Located approximately 12 miles south of Breckenridge in the Placer Valley area, you will enjoy breathtaking vistas of the entire surrounding valley, and 14,000 foot mountains. Just across the road, the South Platte River features GOLD MEDAL TROUT FISHING.
In the evening, relax and stargaze from our large eight-person hot tub or on the wrap around deck. Riverview Lodge has four bedrooms; two up and two down. There are four private bathrooms with two showers & tub. Main three bedrooms have queen-size log beds; fourth bedroom is a 'kids' bunkhouse room with full-size bed, and three single bunk beds. Main Living room upstairs; family and game room downstairs, with fireplaces on both levels. Riverview is ideal for medium to larger groups. Nestled in Nature with great trails for hiking or biking out any door. And there's plenty of entertainment always available in the 'recreational /game room' with ping pong and foose ball tables, videos, CD's, DVD's, puzzles and other fun board games.
A short twelve mile drive over Hoosier Pass puts you into beautiful Breckenridge for WORLD CLASS SKIING, shopping, golfing, music and dining. Or, you can enjoy cross-country skiing, fishing, biking, snowshoeing, and hiking, without leaving wonderful Placer Valley. Montgomery Lake and wilderness areas are but a mile away, while Fairplay and Alma ( two historic mining towns ) are only two to six miles away and also offer restaurants, shops and video rentals.
THERE IS SO MUCH TO DO YEAR ROUND, PLAN TO COME AND STAY A WHILE.
Even if our dates seem booked - please don't hesitate to call or email as we DO have other cabins in nearby areas and also network with other VRBO owners with referrals to each other as a helpful teamwork service to our renters.

Great Fun & Wonderful Skiing!
We came all the way from Hawaii to enjoy the Mts in Colorado & this was a great way to relax & enjoy! We had so much Fun! This is situated with great views of River & Lake & Mountains & close to lots of fun things to do - we liked having the Peace & Quiet after skiing in Breckenridge. And be sure to make the 45 min drive SOUTH to Buena Vista for the HOT SPRINGS too! Way cool & Wonderful! Hope you Enjoyed the Hawaiian Macadamia Nuts we left for you guys! THANKS & ALOHA!

Lots of potential

Overall this property worked well for us but there were a few disappointments. There was some confusion with housekeeping and there were no towels when we arrived-used beach towels until the second day. One of the futons in the living room is bent/sprung and the mattress and bedding on the king size bed was pretty worn out. There is no Wifi (the website does not list it but does talk about it on a later page and states work from home.) We had to go to town to get wifi to plan activities via web. There is also no video library as stated unless you count exercise videos and basketball bloopers. That being said, it was a great place for our family. Plenty of room and bathrooms, pool and foosball tables, and many games. The hot tub was great on cool evenings. The road is a typical Colorado county road--gravel but at least plenty wide , unlike some mountain roads we've been on. Breckenridge is a short drive if you don't mind crossing a high mountain pass each time. Alma has a well stocked general store and Fairplay is only about 15 miles away for more restaurants and groceries. Overall, it worked well for us. It would be perfect for a college group. With a little extra TLC it could even be a retreat house for 4 couples or even couples with kids as long as you utilize all the sofa beds and futons. (We think it could sleep about 16).

Nice but could have been better!

Gorgeous area but following issues degraded the experience: - Too many contact people answered questions and did not have a local person ultimately responsible (Did not even provide correct combination to lock box near door to gain entry). - Road to cabin is in attrocious shape (it will annoy you after the 2nd trip). Not necessarily owners fault but it is a problem. - Yard to property was unkept and unmowed. - WiFi did not work and they didn't do enough in my opionion to make it work... an attitude of oh well. It was never made operational during our stay. - Satilite TV did not work and required me to hook it up correctly. I don't want these problems on vaction. No guarrantee the next occupant would not experience the same fate. - Furniture was not in good shape. - Kitchen was not clean. - Hot tube was great but only part of the jets were operational. This place needs some TLC by a non absent, locally available owner.

Manager response: This is a cabin in the middle of the Colorado Rockys, We have a chain of people that try to make your stay great. We have a standard email that is sent out with a combo and if this isn't working a key hidden. As to the road I stated above it a in the mountains and it is on a lot that the grass grows around the home. We have other homes that has pine needles all over the ground can't fix mother nature.When it comes to internet or the TV I belive that we had a tec come out to look at everything he said it was working fine. Again this is not a 5 star hotel it is a cabin and the furniture will have there issues.(only 15 mins is Breakenridge you would have paid over 3000 to 5000 for the samething.) We are sorry the kitchen was not cleaned and that person has be fired. Hot tub has been working great from the last report we have had by our hot tub tec. So I feel this is a 4 to 5 star CABIN.
Riverview Lodge has a wonderful charm with aspen log beds & trim that invites a relaxing laidback feeling. It has great views of forests & mountains and trails nearby for easy escapes into Nature. We liked the fact that it's out of the busy noisy crowds in Breck yet easy to get to and from. We found it to be a great way to unwind in a very spacious home without paying big bucks in Breck. We ski in winter and fish in summer and love to return every year. We highly reccommend this place to all.

About: Mark Joyous is the Team Leader for this property. We have Shares available for $50,000 ( Easy Owner Financing options or cash) We are enjoying the benefits of TEAMWORK in sharing the use of our vacation home. It's like we have brothers & sisters and we inherited this place. We all enjoy our getaways and rental income and increasing equity without putting a LOT of money into our investment. It makes great sense for folks who are not going to be able to use a property for more than a month or two a year. And we are role modeling and leading by example - ways to be more green and sustainable in a world that is in major change. Feel free to email us or call from our listing for more info and connections.
We like this area for MANY reasons - It's peaceful and quiet - semi-secluded and surrounded by Nature - gorgeous views of mountains and creeks in all directions. We like to be a little bit away from the congestion & crowds but easily accessible to skiing and boating & all the other fun Mtn activities. We can hike right out our front & back doors on roads & trails - Mongomery Reservoir and other Lakes are close by and the laid back small towns of Alma and Fairplay are really close - as is the more busy glitzy glamour of Breckenridge - so we feel we have the best of BOTH Worlds to offer!
The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
Whether you just want to kick back and relax & read or go for an outing in Nature we have a lot to choose from in all directions. We have Wi-Fi and good cellular coverage for most carriers near by coffee shops - so some folks - including most of our ownership Team - can actually do work from the home and play as well - without any hassles. So people lik bicycling around the area and just enjoying what the Great Colorado Outdoors has to offer in general - Come and see for yourselves!
