Motherlode condo description

Please read 'Reviews'' [at top of page].
Motherlode is at PEAK 9 BASE
Location, location, location---! Why pay more when we are just as close as those listed as 'Ski in/Ski out'?
Warmly decorated in mountain style with a sunny, southwest exposure, this cosy, smoke-free condominium is less than 200 yards from the Quicksilver Hi-speed ski lift and from the Ski Center offering lessons, ski storage, child care, medical care, restaurants, ice skating and more. The National Forest Land and Blue River are also at your doorstep, great for fishing and hiking in the summer. Adjacent to the condo, the private, Columbine Association heated pool and hot tubs are free to my guests and open for both the Winter and Summer seasons. Motherlode B-5 is on the second floor of a 12 condo, 3 story building. Each condo is a corner unit with two exposures.

I have recently put in new Queen beds and Queen sleeper sofa, all new kitchen appliances, a new water heater, all new carpeting and flooring and up-graded the two bathrooms. There is also Hi-speed and WiFi.

It's just one block from beautiful, historic downtown Breckenridge with all its wonderful shops and restaurants. If you prefer not to walk, the FREE shuttle picks you [and your skis] up near the condominium and takes you to all the ski lifts and all around town. It connects with the Summit Stage which will take you to all three other 'world class' ski resorts, [ Keystone, Arapahoe Basin, and Copper Mountain] and to the surrounding towns --outlet malls, {for the non-skiers} more restaurants and stores.

A car really is not necessary but there is ample off-street parking at the condo. I can supply you with the GUARANTEED lowest price lift ticket information [good for 6 resorts] and with a 30% DISCOUNT on ski/snowboard rentals.

Breck is equally enchanting Winter or Summer. After an active day on the slopes or hiking, biking, fishing, etc., come home to a relaxing soak in one of the four large hot tubs- two in, two out, or the outdoor heated pool @83-87 degrees. These are open from the Nov. ski season opening through Easter closing; again Memorial Day through Labor Day. The sauna is always open. Afterwards, go back to your condo and enjoy a blazing wood fire, grill on the balcony, or just cook up a feast in your fully equipped kitchen.

If you want more excitement, stroll into town and browse the shops and dine at one of the many excellent restaurants housed in the charming Victorian buildings. Back at the condo, there is cable TV in every room, 1 VCR, 3 DVD players, a Stereo CD player, [bring your favorite CD's to enjoy in front of the fire] all sorts of books [including children's] games, puzzles, and videos.

The Master Bedroom, connecting bath, and large walk-in closet close off to give great privacy. It contains a new Queen bed and twin beds [trundle-the kids LOVE them!]. The second bedroom has a new Queen bed, and a bath across the hall [both baths have hairdryers and both bedrooms have humidifiers] and the living room has a new, very comfortable, Queen sleeper sofa.

There is a closet for ski storage in the entryway.

Credit cards are accepted through PayPal, there is a 3% domestic and a 4% foreign fee [paid by you]. BUT--If you pay through your BANK acct.at PayPal and click 'PERSONAL' and 'FAMILY AND FRIENDS', it is FREE!
Personal checks are fine with me.

We stay in this condo ourselves so it's clean, attractive and we try to anticipate what you would want to have to make it as comfortable [and CLEAN!] as home. Come see for yourselves and enjoy our incredible mountain scenery, the winter snow, and the summer wildflowers and temperatures in the low 70's.

The consensus of the remarks in my guest book seems to run, 'Your condo was perfect, the location was ideal, we walked everywhere! We hated to leave, thanks for letting us stay.'

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1989

                  About the owner: Although my children were all born and raised in the Virgin Islands, three of them discovered the Colorado Rockies, fell in love with them, and moved here. Naturally it wasn't long before I visited them and fell in love, too. Nothing would do but that I buy a place out here for everyone to use. I remembered a perfect little Victorian town and when I went to see Breck in the summer, it was just as perfect as I remembered from the winters, but virtually smothered in flowers. I looked no further! However, as will happen, my children eventually married, moved far away, began having their own children and got on with their young lives--which didn't include vacations for the whole family in the far away Rockies.

                  Why the Owner Chose Motherlode:
                  There I was with the perfect vacation location sitting empty most of the year. I just had to share it, so I started renting to guests. From what they tell me and write me, they all love it as much as I. Now, it's rented so much, I have to block out some nights in the summer for me to use and I never am able to use it in the winter. I guess I succeeded too well. Come out to beautiful Breck and see for yourselves if it isn't perfect.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  This location is so ideal. You never need to get out your car or find parking unless you want to go to another town. Even then, you can go almost anywhere in the county on the free bus. There are also free buses all over town and to all the lifts. However, my condo is right next to the Quicksilver Lift and Ski Center and to Main St. and all it has to offer. In the winter there are all sorts of Winter Festivals, and competitions and in the summer there are the outstanding concerts [the Breckenridge Music Festival and NRO], art/antique fairs, Farmer's and World Markets and of course many, many other activities, summer and winter, in this lovely, historic town.
