Property description

"Riffle Haus" is a comfortable 1700 sq. ft. home-away-from-home with serene views and privacy. You'll love listening to the river all year long. Downstairs has a dining/living room area with river and mountain views and a cozy wood burning stove. Walk outside the front door onto a large porch which ends just feet from the Blue River. Also on the first floor is a queen bedroom with adjacent full bathroom, a full kitchen, laundry area and a mud room to store your jackets, skis, and fishing gear. Upstairs has 2 bedrooms (one with a queen, bunk bed, crib, and balcony with river view, the other room has a queen and trundle bed) and a full bath. A detachable garage houses 2 cars with additional parking space in the driveway.

The house is an easy 10 minute drive to Breckenridge ski area, 40 minutes to Keystone and Copper ski areas, and an hour to Vail. Fishing is right out the front door in the Upper Blue River with access to the community "tarn" (small lake) in summer.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1977

About the owner: My parents built this home in 1977 and then passed it on to my brother and me several years ago. I live outside of Philadelphia with my family and my brother is in California with his so neither of us is able to use the house as much as we'd like. Over the years it has been used by family and friends and now we would like to open to the wider community.

Why the Owner Chose Blue River:
We were all drawn to having a river in the front yard and loved the feeling of peace and quiet created by the setting. We loved the easy access to Breckenridge skiing, restaurants and shops as well as all the outdoor activities in the area.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It's a great place to relax and is very comfortable for families and dogs.
