Valley of the Blue cottage description

New this Spring...Blue Star Pro Gas Range calibrated for altitude along with all new kitchen appliances. Chefs welcome!

Wake up to beautiful mountain views and the sound of a stream outside your window or beautiful drifts of untouched snow. After a day of skiing or hiking, enjoy our fabulous new Jacuzzi hot tub or fire up one of several fire options while watching the sunset. Activities are numerous in both summer and winter and include world class skiing/snow boarding, cross country skiing, mountain biking, rafting and hiking right outside the door or just minutes down the road.

Our cottage is equipped with everything you might need to prepare a quick snack or a gourmet meal. Nice glassware, dishes, linen, cooking tools and serving pieces allow you to enjoy this get-away as much as you would your own home. There is also a Weber charcoal grill on the expansive deck that wraps the back of the house. With 2 fireplaces and a pleasing decor, get ready to relax and smile a lot. It is truly a special place.

Experience our wonderful mountain cottage. We know you will enjoy it as much as we do...

                          La Barranca is located in beautiful Valley of the Blue just 6 miles south of Main Street Breckenridge. Our guests have enjoyed the serene location and majestic views while being just a 10 minute drive to some of the best skiing, boarding and outdoor fun our country has to offer. There are 2 fourteeners to climb in the area, Mount Quandry being the most popular and best for non-experts. The trail head is just a mile away from the house. Continue south over Hoosier pass (go in the evening and see stars at the top like you have never seen them!) to Park County and the charming towns of Alma and Fairplay. I-70 and the town of Frisco are approximately 16 miles north where you have quick access to the Vail and Copper Mountain ski resorts. Keystone and Arapahoe Basin are just a few miles east via Swan Mountain Road off Hwy 9 at Farmer's Corner.

                          Other Activities: Hiking, Rafting, Kayaking

We own Environs Residential, a design/build construction company and spend most of our time in Atanta, GA. Terry, a native of Ohio, was a resident of Breckenridge for 18 years prior to moving east. Dawn, a native of Tennessee, has lived in Atlanta since 1988. We love to travel to exciting new places and always look for spots where we can enjoy the outdoors or city culture. In addition to playing outside, we love to cook, appreciate nice wine and entertain our friends and neighbors. Sharing our little slice of heaven in the mountains is especially enjoyable. We love the comments and photos our guests send us after their stay. (Photo taken as we embark on a trip up to the top of Baldy Mountain)

                          Why the Owner Chose Valley of the Blue:
                          It took us 5 minutes in the house to decide to purchase it. A long-time friend of Terry's with whom we were having a beer a the local pizza joint, Fatty's, told us about it and drove us out to the place. Loving the location and of course the stream, we immediatley called another friend and realtor, Stephanie Epps, who got us in to see it the next day. We ended up buying the house along with both lots on either side! We love Valley of the Blue and our quiet street high above Hwy 9. The neighbors are great and the stars at night are magical.
