Gold Camp condo description

Delightful 2 BR condo on the top floor with sleeping for 6. We stayed at Gold Camp just before Christmas 2010 and enjoyed the convenient and affordable location so much that we closed on a similar unit in November 2011. We are a family business with our 29 yo son who lives in Breckenridge looking after the condo and is available in the rare instances of something going wrong.

We will be honest and state the following:
a) We are 0.4 miles from peak 8 and is a doable walk in ski boots but the free shuttle stop to both peaks 7 and 8 is 100 yards from the condo entrance. There are two bus routes (green and black) so service is reasonably frequent.
b) The décor is dated but not gaudy and we boast an in-wall sound system complete with cassette player, so bring your old tapes! We have linked an ipod connection to the cassette player. The radio has both FM/AM and is a treat.
c) We have replaced the smaller appliances (toaster, electric kettle)
d) Major appliances (fridge, stove, microwave, and dishwasher) work fine but they might remind you of your mom’s kitchen when you were a kid.
e) We have replaced all the linen (sheets, pillow cases, matress protectors, and towels) and have introduced duvets
f) We are on the top floor with great views, more room with the vaulted ceiling, and quieter (a lesson we learnt from our previous stay when we could hear people walking around upstairs). I don't know why others think being on a lower floor is an advantage as we use the trip up and down as part of our ski warm up and cool down.
g) It is children friendly for those above 7 years old (maybe 5) because our toddler days are, ambivalently, long behind us (as mentioned above our middle son works in Breck and maintains the property for us)
h) Sleeping consists of a queen bed in one room, 2 twins in the other and a long hallway between the 2 rooms for added privacy. Bathroom and vanity are off the hallway...works very well. There is also a king size sofa bed in the living room.

While we provide bathroom tissue, towels etc, washing up gear, some condiments but we DO NOT SUPPLY LITTLE SOAPS NOR SHAMPOO. We are trying to keep prices down so consider these items that guests should bring themselves.

                      Breckenridge is also an old gold mining town and has an informative musuem and some of the original mining cottages survive as well as the dredges used to mine gold.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About the owner: Mid century moderns and Australian citizens who became US citizens on 12/16/11. Empty nesters (3 'boys': 31, 29 and 24), and we have been living in NYC for the last 12 years. However, we don't work on Wall Street so we are normal people.

                      Why the Owner Chose Gold Camp:
                      Our son has worked at Breck for the last 5 years and we have bought the condo to spend more time with him. One of our IRAs was going nowhere so we liquidated it and now have an 'investment' we can use. We like the proximity to the slopes and the relative isolation on the top floor. We are not out to make money, just cover our costs to spend more time with our son.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      While we were attracted by the winter sports, there is a saying here that people 'come for the winter but stay for the summer' and having spent a couple of summers here we know why: hiking, white water rafting, local events...beautiful
