Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: Breckenridge has been our home since 1986, when I left the corporate life of Dallas, as a public speaker. It was in 1994 that, after living in a condo for 8 year, my wife and I built duplex three blocks off of main street. I was the general contractor and hired a lot of Mennonite craftsman from Kansas. We now spend our winters in Franklin, TN -- outside of Nashville -- with the three young grandsons and family. So, while we are gone in the winter we rent out home out to you skiers We have been married for 51 years--November 22, 2011-- have two sons. One in Franklin TN with wife and three kids and other in Coppell, TX with wife and two older grandkids. My wife is a painter, organist pianist, quilter We spent three years in central Africa-- Malaw. In 1987-- after moving to Breckenridge in 1986, I wrote a book -- Take Your LIfe Off Hold -- which was about people leaving the corporate rat race and going for their dreams. Had over 300 radio/TV/newspaper interviews on the book. Now my days are spent working with Moozie the cow who is the ambassador of kindness for the Children's Kindness Network, (CKN) a nonprofit organization that we started back in 1998 -after discovering that a robotic talking cow I built-- as a garage project--was loved by children and they listened when Moozie talked about kindness. CKN's mission is to stop bullying before it begins by teaching kindness values to young pre-K children. You can learn about Moozie and the Children's Kindness Network by going to www.childrenskindnessnetwork.org And to our renters, we say thanks for renting our place for your rental income has a financial impact on CKN And if you would like to know more about CKN and Moozie, And if you have heard about Moozie in your community, for fun-- drop me a line

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
We have this rental here because our residence is in Breckenridge and we leave during the winter to be with young grandchildren in Franklin, TN. All grandparents can understand that. We love the beauty of Breckenridge and that it is a real town with real people. We have lived in Breckenridge since 1986 and in our home since 1994.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You will be staying in our home therefore it has upgrades on all amenities since it is not simply a rental. The most common comment we get from renters is that they can't believe that we rent our a home this nice. And we have been very fortunate for the people renting it appreciate the fact that it is special and they have taken care of it-- so it is a win/win. Additionally, there is a large common area right in front of the picture window. This allows the kids to play in the snow outside as parents and grandparents sit in front of the fire inside the house watching them. There are small slopes which kids can slide down with plastic sleds. And then there is the fact we are right in town so it is easy to go out to shop, eat and the gondola is only a six minute walk. And for what is it worth -- you are staying in Moozie's home -- some kids love that fact. And we work with a ski rental place on the way to the gondola which gives out guests special discounts-- and has given great service-- per feedback from renters.
