The Willoughby Cottage dates back to 1891 when grocer R.F.Willoughby had it built. His son Ralph Willoughby and his bride Maude, spent their first months of marriage in this small frame house. At the time, the honeymoon suite was a remodeled horse stable that occupied a spot on the property owned by the groom’s parents at 322 South Main Street.
When the newlyweds moved out in 1903, Ralph’s father put the cottage up for lease. The newspaper ad read, “FOR RENT. CABIN WITH OR WITHOUT BACHING OUTFIT. INQUIRE OF R. W. WILLOUGHBY.”
The tiny cottage was moved to the current location in 1990 and restored as a romantic cabin. The Cottage is featured on the Breckenridge historical walking tour.

In the summer, use the bike/walking trail that goes from Breckenridge to the town of Frisco. Minutes to 'City Market' for groceries and the Town of Breckenridge’s Recreation Center with its full weight room, rock climbing wall, indoor pool, indoor hot tub, out door hot tub, indoor running track, indoor and outdoor tennis courts.

Make our cottage yours, and enjoy all Breckenridge has to offer.

                            My girlfriend and I stayed two nights here for a little romantic ski getaway. It was perfect for us! Literally 2 minute walk (if that) to the Gondola and short walk down Main St. to numerous restaurants, bars, and shops. The place is cozy and was plenty big for the two of us. We did not cook any meals in the kitchenette but it did have everything you needed to make a small meal. In the mornings we would make a pot of coffee at the house and pick up breakfast from either Daylight Donuts or Kava Coffee and sit on the front porch to enjoy the great food, coffee, and view! Also, just knowing that the house was built in 1880 makes it feel very unique and to know that those walls of that house has seen so much over the past 130+ years! I would recommend this place to anyone for a little getaway. I will come back again without a doubt! Also, the owner was very responsive and helpful with our questions before hand.

                            We loved this cottage and our stay in Breckenridge. It feels like it is perfectly located near the gondola and on main street. It's the perfect place for a nice, or romantic stay. Thank you.

                            This was a wonderful cottage in a great location, we had a great time and it snowed 20 plus inches over the 3 day period we were here, which was awesome. This cottage has a amazing set up, and we were very pleased with everything, we went Dog mushing and Snowmobiling and had a blast while here going to miss the cottage and will be back to this wonderful place , Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful cottage .

                            This cottage provided us with an absolutely perfect romatic getaway. We stayed just two nights, it's in a perfect location, walking distance from everything including the gondola. Jacuzzi was incredible. We even cooked a big meal on Thanksgiving! Stoves are small but fully functional and provided us with everything we needed for two amazing nights. We absolutely plan to be back!

                            My boyfriend and I stayed at the cottage for a fall-getaway trip. It was the perfect size for the two of us and our dog. The fireplace is actually extremely heat efficient, it warms up quick in there!! The place was clean and the management was so easy to work with. You really can't beat the location, we only used our car once the entire weekend to drive up Boreas Pass with the dog. Everywhere is walk-able and Blue River Bistro has live music and a great happy hour Saturday nights! We definitely hope to return to the cottage in the future.

                            My husband and I stayed at the cottage for 5 days without any children and loved it. It's a very simple little cottage. We made breakfast every morning and sat on the front porch while watching Main street wake up! The cottage was very clean and we would definitely stay here again.

                            My husband and I really did enjoy our time in Breckenridge, celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. It was our first time there as we just moved to Colorado just over a year ago. However, it would have been nice to know there's a "mud season" and that 80% of everything would be closed. We will most likely book our travel 2 weeks later, as everyone would be back open May 10, 24, or 31st. Other than that, the cottage was charming and quaint and the amenities were more than accommodating. The only things I would change would be the pillows. They were flat a crackers so didn't really sleep all that well. We did enjoy the convenience of the location to downtown and the ski lifts if we were to return during ski season.

                            My husband skiied, I shopped, we both ate and drank. Cottage was clean, warm and super-convenient to everything. My hubby walked to the free gondola every day--about 2-3 minutes away. 4-5 blocks to a grocery store. We woke up to 5 inches of snow one day. But someone was there to shovel it away. Lights at night were beautiful. Cristina was able to accommodate a last-minute reservation. Trip was awesome! I would definitely recommend and stay again!

                            We'd never rented via a vacation rental site before, so this was our first experience doing it. Words cannot say how happy we were with this property. It was exactly what we were looking for. The property is located about 300 feet from the base of the Gondola that serves peak 7 and 8, so it was easy access to the mountain. The gondola base is also the location of the Breckenridge Transit Station, another big plus. You can get a DIA airport shuttle package that drops off at the Transit station (instead of drop/pick-up at a specific address) and then simply walk to the cottage. That saved us $28/person one-way, or $112 total. If you drive, there is off-street parking for two vehicles. The cabin is small - i don't think i'd recommend it for more than two people. Maybe three, if you know each other well. The bathroom is 'captured' - industry term for you have to go through the bedroom, from the communal area, to get to it. There is a small couch in the living room that pulls out for the extra person. It is remarkably heat efficient - there is an electric space heater in the kitchen/living area, a gas insert fireplace in the bedroom/vanity area, and an electric baseboard heater in the toilet/shower area. It was 5 below zero on several nights, and we didn't even run the gas insert fireplace. The two electric heaters were enough to keep us warm. The gas insert doesn't have a thermostat on it, so it would have been too warm. There is a nice jacuzzi bath that fits two - we made good use of that. The hot water system was on-demand, and there was never an issue with lack of hot water. The shower is nice - big area with a bench to sit on, and dual shower head system. The caretakers were there shoveling walkways and parking areas at 7am every day it snowed - nice to know they put the extra effort into handling snow issues. Wish our neighbors in Minnesota were as punctual :) The one downside of the cottage is probably the size of the kitchenette - it really is pretty small, with not much counter space. There is a dorm-style refrigerator that doesn't really have an icebox area - so storing ice for cocktails, or frozen pizzas, is out (though there was an ice tray in it). I suppose you could leave these on the back porch if you want. But hey, who comes to Breck for the size of the kitchen? Overall, location, hot water, and diligent caretakers are the three most important elements of a ski trip, in my book. This place has all three.

                            Recommended for: Age 55+, sightseeing, romantic getaway, tourists without a car.

                          Year Purchased: 2004

                          About the owner: In our 40ties, happily married, three kids and still enjoying moving around in this big beautiful world.. Currently living in Marrakech, Morocco. Looking at Playa del Carmen (Mex) and Marbella (Spain) for our next move..

                          Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                          It was just too lovely and unique not to buy when the opportunity arose and it is right next door to our larger Williams House

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          Best location in town, not another condo but a stand alone historic little darling cottage. Pet friendly and right behind the Gondola.
