Our condo (1167 Ski Hill Rd, Gold Camp, Peak 8 in Breckenridge) is a nice GROUND FLOOR Walkout (no hiking all those stairs with your gear and groceries!) located well under a 1/2 of a mile from the Peak 8 chairlifts.

Either walk to the lifts or take the free bus that stops in front of the complex 5 times an hour to Peaks 6, 7 and 8 (next two stops - literally 2 minutes away). Get ready for enjoy the Peak 6 expansion, a 23% increase in the skiable acres. You can also take a short walk and ski down to the Snowflake lift. Good skiers can ski-in along 4 O'Clock Run Rd to patio door (requires fresh or good snow cover).

The Breckenridge NORDIC CENTER located 1/3 of a mile away (ski over or it's one stop on the bus) where you can rent nordic skis and snowshoes and enjoy many miles of groomed trails.

Summer in Breckenridge:
Enjoy a real mountain town with many summer activities (theater, shopping, mountain biking, etc.) and wonderful weather. The Fun Park at Peak 8 is great and an easy stroll from the condo. Easy first floor bike storage.

The Condominium:
Our Condo is nicely furnished for a comfortable stay - 'a home away from home'. Relax at night with a 47' HDTV (with Comcast HD) 100+ channels, Blu-ray discs and HD Netflix/Amazon streaming, with additional DVD's available from Redbox in the City Market in town. WASHER and DRYER inside the condo (great for longer stays and wet gear). Sleeps four to six comfortably. Living room sofa converts to a queen-size bed (with memory foam pad), master bedroom has a pillow-top queen, bedroom 2 has a twin over full bunk bed. Shared Spa (4) and 2 Saunas in complex. Free Wireless INTERNET, free parking for 2 vehicles, and ski and board storage. Many items and toys for kids to enjoy (Children's movies, toys, etc). A safe, large play area, just outside the condo, is a great place for kids to sled, make snowmen or play 'king of the snow pile' - join them or watch from the kitchen window :)

Avoid the noise of downtown and vacation with us on the mountain above Breckenridge. You will be happy you did, as you might be surprised how difficult and time consuming it is to get to the slopes if you lodge in the downtown.

Guest Quotes (more at the end of this listing):
'The condo was well equipped, very comfortable and convenient to the slopes. We'd be happy to go back. -R.H.'

'Bill's place condo is a great spot to make your home while in Breckenridge. The condo is in a great location, across the street from a bus stop with both Black and Green shuttle routes, and one stop to Peak 8. The condo itself is clean, spacious, and comes with plenty of towels and ski locker storage. There are plastic bins to cleanly store your boots and snow shoes, and plenty of hooks to hang all your winter gear. We enjoyed using the community hot tub after skiing each day, and had the whole place to ourselves each day! We would definitely return to Bills condo if back in Breck! - Meg R'

                            Condo was roomy and more than enough for family of four. Kid room could sleep 3. Short walk to bus stop and very short ride to peak 8 as listing stated. Was clean. Owner was responsive to questions (email). One bath in hallway so easy for all without disturbing others. Lots of room to hang ski clothes.

                            Recommended for: Families with young children, families with teenagers.

                            Owner response: Glad you enjoyed our condo. Super easy access to the slopes is often advertised in Breck but often is not reality - That's what makes us different - Ask other owners how/where buses stop, how many minutes and if a change is required to get to the slopes. Hope to see you again. Bill

                            Loved the layout of the condo. Having bedrooms on opposite ends allowed my girls to sleep in. The ski locker was certainly an added bonus. Having wifi was a plus for me as I cant seem to escape work. Your kitchen and bath were well stoked and much appreciated. Washer and dryer inside the unit was a plus! The location to bus stop and peak 8 was great! The unit was also very clean.

                            The condo was perfect! We had plenty of room, it was set up very nice and it is literally minutes from the base of peak 8. We had such a great time, everything was clean, organized, and inviting. It was a home away from home!

                            The condo was located on the first floor which is great considering steps in boots are a bummer. It was a simple walk (10 minutes) to the main gondola, or a short wait for the bus. The condo was clean and has a nice LCD/LED TV with blu ray. Plenty of space. Would stay again no problems.

                            Recommended for: Families with young children, families with teenagers, romantic getaway, sightseeing, age 55+, tourists without a car, adventure seekers, girls getaway.

                            Owner response: Yes, a ground level unit is nice to avoid the dreaded stair hike. You can also get the the Snowflake lift after a 4min. walk - nice to use to get to Peaks 9 and 10. As for the feeling of space in the unit - we've worked hard to add helpful storage and carefully selected furnishings to keep space open. We're glad to hear you enjoyed your vacation, hope to host you again in the future.

                            We absolutely loved your condo, Bill! Our overall experience from booking, check-in, to check-out was definitely positive. The condo was very clean and had everything you would need! I was worried that we needed to bring our own towels and bedding, but lo and behold, we did not...as everything was provided for us. :) Thank you very much for having us! Also, Bill was very receptive to every question I had. Thanks again, will definitely recommend others to stay here.

                            We stayed at Gold Camp in 2012 and really enjoyed the condo. It is pretty much ski-in, ski-out (have to cross the road and pole) and has some nice features like a wood burning fireplace and access to nice hot tubs. Everything was neat and clean in the apartment and in good shape. For a family of 4-5 it works fine with 2 in one bedroom, 2 in the other and one on the pullout couch which was actually pretty comfortable! Owner was great to work with - we'll be back!

                            Weekend getaway for old college friends. Plenty of room for 5 of us. Steps from the Breck Connect shuttle bus which takes you virtually anywhere in Breckenridge. Clean, comfortable and convenient. Owner was extremely prompt and helpful.

                            Owner response: Glad you enjoyed your vacation :) The freeRide bus is great! Get the 8:22am bus and be on one of the first chairs on Peak 8 (which opens at 8:30am). Keep us in mind for the future.

                            Will return next time we're in Breck. The place was clean, well equipped, and close to skiing. We came back for lunch each day to relax a bit and eat exactly what we wanted. Fun to watch Netflix movies at night as a family. Nice to be on ground level so we didn't have to tromp up stairs in our boots. Thanks!

                            My wife and I stayed there for a week. The condo was very clean, furnishings were high quality, kitchen well equipped, great TV with cable and netflix, everything worked. Easy walk to bus stop but away from streets far enough to be quiet. The shower was really good (my wife wants me to install a shower head like that at home now). Having a washer/dryer was convenient. Lots of places for hanging ski stuff. Liked being on the ground floor - walking up and down stairs in ski boots is a pain. It was a short walk to the very nice hot tubs.

                            Owner response: The large/high-flow shower head is great after a long day on the slopes. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Bill

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          As a family that likes a diverse set of outdoor activities our condo is perfect - we're on the mountain above Breckenridge so it's just a short distance to the Peak 8 Base area and basically across the street from the Nordic Center (where one can snowshoe and alpine ski). The kids enjoy sledding after ski hours down to town and taking the bus back up. Summer is also great as we hike and bike right from the condo - very convenient. Since many locals live in the complex it tends to be quiet and a good place to just chill.
