Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: My name is Mike Krueger and I am the owner and manager of this terrific home. I've lived in Breckenridge for the past 25 years and I absolutely love the area & the people that make up our community. I graduated from Williams College in Massachusetts in 1986 and have been in Colorado ever since. I am a partner and co-owner of Breckenridge Associates Real Estate and have been involved in the real estate business ever since I arrived in town. If you need help with anything involving real estate while you are visiting Breckenridge, please be sure to let me know!!

Why the Owner Chose Blue River:
As you head south out of town, you immediately feel the solitude of the area with no stop lights, very little traffic, beautiful lakes and mountain scenery at every turn. The majority of Summer hikes close to Breckenridge are on this side of town, there is private fishing and canoeing at Tarn Lake, and we truly enjoy the peace and quiet of our home as the property backs to National Forest.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Hiking and cross country skiing right from our back door! The peace and quiet we enjoy while in our home with no traffic and no road noise. The endless activities that make Summit County such a wonderful place to visit and live! We have a very large deck off the front of the house that is terrific in the summertime to enjoy the views of Quandary Mountain, the only 14,000+ mountain in all of Summit County. Our view is arguably one of the best in the entire county!! We have a large BBQ on this deck, so whether it be summer or winter, it's a pleasure to cook outside! We also have a deck and stone patio off the back of the house where the 7 person hot tub is located....you still get some great views and complete privacy! From our back deck, you can simply put on your hiking boots, snow shoes or cross country ski gear and enjoy direct access to literally millions of acres of National Forest!
