Blue River house 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 cabin has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, two living areas, and an updated kitchen with all brand new stainless steel appliances.

A brand new furnace, new whole house insulation, and a crackling warm cast iron fireplace will keep you warm and cozy while you relax

The kitchen is stocked with pots and pans, coffee maker and we keep spices, condiments, coffee, tea, hot chocolate,

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!

Outside keep your feet warm as you walk outside on the heated mat to 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 if you prefer, the wood burning fire pit in the yard, 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), 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.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2009

                          About the owner: We are a military family. Matt grew up in NY. After graduating from West Point (Go Army), he spent 20 years on active duty Army before retiring and taking a desk job. Holly is a Texan and went to Texas A&M (Gig Em) and is a decorative painter. We have made Colorado our home base.

                          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 one block off Highway 9 (Main road through town). We are 5 minutes from the ski lifts and just minutes from 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:
                          Game-room with air hockey, Wii with games, books, board games, and even a big tub of toddler friendly toys. Flat screens in every bed room and in both living areas. Free high-speed Wi-fi use and a desk top computer for your use. Large outdoor deck with hot tub, large gas fire pit 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, toddler table with chairs, sippy cups, bibs, kid friendly dishes, and even a pack n play.
