The best of Breckenridge
The best of Breckenridge
The pictures don't do it justice, this house is simply flawless from top to bottom. We were able to accommodate our entire family for Thanksgiving (no easy feat) and had ample room to spread out so that we never felt crowded or congested. The family room provided the perfect social atmosphere for watching football, playing pool, lounging at the bar and dipping in the hot-tub. The kitchen looks straight out of a french bistro and is incredibly spacious which provided us the ability to cook massive meals in comfort. The house is short walking distance to the gondola which conveniently takes you either to downtown Breckenridge or the Ski Resort. While we had a car we probably didn't need it. Even centered in the nicest neighborhood of Breckenridge this place still manages to stand out and will be at the top of our list for future stays.

This home exceeded expectations!! Breck is an amazing destination in itself; however this house was the gem of our vacation. The spacious home provided the coziness that we desired and the size we needed to accommodate for 17 family members. Everyone was able to enjoy their own personal space. The common areas were elegant, yet comfortable. The gourmet kitchen was the focal point of trip! At one point we had all 17 guests standing around the massive granite island socializing while Mom put the finishing touches on dinner. No expense was spared in the kitchen....SUPERB!!! We will be forever grateful to Tish for opening up her home to our family. We are already planning next year's trip and would not consider any other home in Breckenridge. BEST HOUSE I HAVE EVER FOUND ON VRBO!!!!

Elegant Yet Comfortable

We stayed at the Castle for 10 days in July to celebrate a family birthday. The property was everything represented in the owner's listing and more. It is beautifully constructed and furnished and perfectly maintained. Our family loves to cook and the house was well-equipped for this purpose. The kitchen is HUGE and we could all pitch in with more than ample work space and without running into each other. The barbeque grill is right outside the kitchen door on a lovely patio and we enjoyed our cocktails there in the evenings while preparing dinner. The house enjoys convenient access to town, but the sparsely populated surroundings offer the serenity expected with a mountain location. Being close to the gondola was a plus. We would definitely return here and hope to do so soon.

One word sums up this wonderful home...AMAZING!! Everyone in our group was excited once they saw the pictures online, but the pictures do not do justice to this amazing home. We choose this home for our family vacation to celebrate my sons 1st birthday and my 32nd birthday and it was the best birthday celebration ever. From the moment we walked in the door until the minute we left we felt like royalty. The kitchen was put to good use, and the little girl’s room was a huge hit for my 2 1/2 year old daughter. We had both sets of grandparents, all three uncles, our children’s god mother along with my wife and I for a total of 12 people and most of the time we could not find one another because this home is so spacious and private. Located just a 5 minute walk to the gondola made it great for skiing and shopping. Tish was so accommodating and her housekeeper Agnus was a huge help. After this amazing stay we have decided to make this a new yearly tradition and we cannot wait until next year. Thank you for opening up your home to my family.

If you are looking for the perfect place to take your family, look no more! The site of the house takes your breath away when you pull into the driveway. It is a beautifully decorated, spacious home, that is warm and inviting. The photograghs are great but not anything like the experience. It is located within minutes of anything you want to do, hike, ski, shopping, dining. We had 10 adults and 7 small children and we never felt like we were on top of each other. Our babies had a blast in the darling rooms designed for children. The adults had as much privacy as they wanted. The gourmet kitchen was perfect for a large family gathering. From the time we booked the reservation until the sad moment we had to leave, Tish was so accomadating, I felt like I had know her for years. Her housekeeper Agnus greeted us like we were long time friends. Do not hesitate to make this a personal experience you will not be disappointed. My family and I can hardly wait until we visit again. Thanks again Tish and Agnus.

I hate to give away a sweet secret place but the owner, Tish, was so accommodating I feel I have to! Take everything that is said about the house and double it! It truly is a wonderful house. The kind you walk into and automatically feel good. The grand piano was a plus having three people in the family that play. Agnus, the housekeeper, cames by everyday to freshen towels and check if anything was needed, she is a doll! The beautiful home is magically kid friendly, it just works! Outside is a hot tub, sledding, cross-country trails, and the gondola to ski hill or town! We had a full house the first week, (we had it for two), the house has so many setting areas that it was always pleasant, meaning if you wanted to be alone the house was big enough to do just that. Not far away by car was the Nordic Center, a small cozy cross county post where you can rent snow shoes, cross-country skis, ect. or roast hot-dogs on an outdoor grill, which was cute for the kids! Everyone had a great time! I would definitely go back!

Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: I have enjoyed every detail of building and designing our home in Breckenridge. It was inspired by our grand children and children. The bunk rooms are built with fun in mind. The girls bunk room has red checkered bedwear and a Wii and the boys bunk room has Burberry design and the hot tub right off their bedroom. The older children love that I have beer on tap and a full bar off the Billiard room. NFL Sunday ticket is also a big hit here!
Why the Owner Chose Shock Hill:
We love the casual and friendly atmosphere Breckenridge provides. The proximity to the Denver airport is also so very convenient for our family and guests. Breckenridge is even more lovely in the summer with it's mild climate and beautiful wild flower. Our friends and family love the many hiking, rafting, trout fishing and biking areas.
