Property description

Our family friendly home sits in a beautiful, serene mountain setting with amazing views! We are only three miles to downtown Breckenridge and the slopes.

Our 2,100 square foot home has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, two living areas, and an updated kitchen with stainless steel appliances.

The gourmet kitchen is stocked with All-Clad pots and pans, Crock pot, pancake griddle, coffee/tea maker and we keep spices, condiments, coffee, tea, hot chocolate. Everything for the gourmand to cook a delicious meal.

There are flat screen televisions in both living areas and in each bedroom. You will also find DVD players with movies, a Wii game system and games, air hockey, board games and lots of books. No one should ever get bored here! The downstairs living room has a cast iron fireplace; a great way to snuggle up and watch movies together.

Outside keep your feet warm as you walk outside on the heated mat as you slip into our Arctic Spa hot tub. Fire up our one of a kind, custom made gas fire pit (just like at the ski slopes). Or, relax in the hammock for afternoon naps, multiple deck chairs and a two-seater swing to sit and relax.

You never have to worry about shoveling snow, we we have a company who plows the drive and shovels the deck. You can just enjoy your vacation!

When you leave the cabin, you are only minutes from so many fun and adventurous activities. In the winter, ski or snowboard at Breckenridge (which is only a five minute drive away), cross country ski, snow shoe, snowmobile, or catch a ride on the free Summit Express Shuttle service you pick up in Breckenridge and go ski at Keystone, or Arapaho Basin. Copper Mountain and Vail resorts are all a short drive as well.

After a day on the slopes you can hit some of the great restaurants in town. Not in the mood to ski or snowboard? How about a sleigh ride or even snow mobile tour? Or, you might take the kids (or just the young at heart) to the great tubing hill in Frisco. Forget your winter coat? There is great shopping in downtown Breck or even hit the outlet mall at Silverthorne.

During warmer months, there are hundreds of trails in Summit County to explore. You can hike a 14er, bike over the pass to Keystone, go white water rafting, catch a ride on a zip line, learn to fly fish, take a Jeep or ATV tour, tour the local gold mines.

In addition, there is always something going on in town, ice sculpture contests, music and festivals, or spend a day at one of the great spas and get a massage.

Great stay at this Breckenridge condo 03/08/2011

VRBO Bear stayed here:

This Breckenridge home is perfect for a pack of bears! When I arrived, I was welcomed by a cozy, cabin feel and a warm crackling fireplace. I could instantly tell this was going to be a perfect weekend getaway.

My traveling companions and I headed up for the weekend to escape from the hustle and bustle. There was plenty of space in this humble abode for all of us to sit back, relax, and watch our favorite movies. We each had our own flat screen TV in our rooms! After watching a movie we headed upstairs for a ping pong match and a game or two of air hockey. One of the best things about this cabin is you get the feeling of being secluded in the mountains, but only about 2.5 miles from town.

After a long day of walking around town or hitting the slopes, we came back to a warm house and relaxed in the bubbling hot tub. The heated floor mat leading to the hot tub was a nice touch. There were plenty of activities to do during our stay. We found shops, restaurants, trails and the gondola is just minutes away! If you choose to stay indoors, the cabin is stocked with plenty of movies and puzzles to keep you entertained.

The home has many windows providing beautiful views. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to make our meals; from pots and pans to salt and pepper. The living room had comfortable chairs and couches that were always inviting after a day out on the town. The bathrooms were stocked with plenty of towels and wash cloths and the hosts even spoiled us with soaps and lotions! This is a fantastic home whether you're visiting for a couple days or staying for a week.

Why the Owner Chose Blue River:
We chose this location for the proximity to downtown Breckenridge yet far enough from town to enjoy peace and quiet. We are very close to ski lifts, Quandry Peak and Goose Pasture Tarn (local lake 1/2 mile from the house). We are only four houses off Highway 9 (Main road through town). We are minutes from the ski lifts and tons of great hiking, snow shoeing, cross country skiing and biking. It is a wonderful get away. One of the most scenic mountain areas in the US with unlimited outdoor activities: Snow Skiing, snowboarding, tubing, mountain biking, fishing, whitewater rafting, snowmobiling, 4-wheeling, hiking, nature, ice skating and more.Truly a beautiful area.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Two living rooms (one upstairs and one downstairs) means the adults and kids can have their own spaces. Game-room with TV, DVD player, air hockey, Wii with games, books, and board games. There are TVs in every bed room and in both living areas. Free high-speed internet and WiFi use and a desk top computer for your use. Large outdoor deck with hot tub, large gas fire pit, hot tub, and custom made log chairs. Tree house for the young or just young at heart! Three miles from the ski lifts. We have everything you need for your little ones too: high chair, booster seat, toddler table with chairs, sippy cups, bibs, kid friendly dishes, and even a pack n play.
