Property description

Welcome to the Blue River Lodge! This luxurious custom crafted, log home comes is a rare find complete with an outdoor 7-person hot tub, sauna, steam room, spacious two-car heated garage, multi-room sound system, pool table, Indian tipi, outdoor fire pit with log benches (and marshmallow roasting sticks), huge deck (and separate private deck for the Master Bedroom), 2-car oversized garage, wireless broadband, acreage, views, and more. If you are looking for a true Colorado log cabin in the woods yet pamper yourself with the comforts of a luxury spa (and very close to skiing and the town of Breckenridge), this is it! Find our property on Facebook (search 'Blue River Lodge') for over 100 more pictures!

The spacious living areas include a large great room with woodstove, huge master bedroom (King size bed), two guest bedrooms (each with Queen bed), a very large bunkroom (two full size bunks and four single size bunks, all built-in) and three very spacious full baths to comfortably accommodate three or four couples or families with children. With top of the line furnishings, a fully-equipped gourmet kitchen, down comforters and pillows, and plenty of living space, you will feel like a guest in a private home rather than a tourist in a rental property. Whether you want to relax under the stars in the hot tub after a day of skiing, curl up next to the fire with a good book, snowshoe out the back door (6 sets of snowshoes are provided), take a sauna or steam, or shoot a game of pool, this house has everything you need for a perfect Colorado mountain vacation.

Other amenities include Satellite TV, wireless broadband, wood stove, rock fireplace, very large 'mudroom' for boots and jackets, and even an authentic Indian Tipi complete with firepit (and marshmallow roasting forks).

Picture windows and two large decks offer magnificent views in every direction! Front deck looks into mountain peaks and rear deck faces National Forest. Secluded from view from other houses, the Blue River Lodge is nestled in Aspen and Pine, five minutes from Breckenridge with quick access to the ski areas of Breckenridge, Keystone, Copper, A-Basin and Vail. The Blue River Lodge is also close to world class golfing, shopping, back-country trails for hiking and biking, rafting, and gold medal flyfishing.

Please review comments in our guestbook and you will see that our guests comment that this home is one of the finest properties available in Breckenridge. To view more pictures see our Facebook page under 'Blue River Lodge.' Please contact us for a rate quote as rates can vary depending on the season and size of your group. Please also feel free to contact us with any questions, if you would like additional photos, prior guest references or more information. Most of our guests are repeat customers so we recommend booking well in advance.

Car: Necessary

Our property is unique in that it is furnished like your own private home. It is private and secluded yet only 10 minutes from Breckenridge. If you are looking for a true log cabin in the woods, this is it! World class skiing at Breckenridge, Keystone, Copper Mountain and Arapahoe Basin are all within a 20 to 30 minute drive. If hiking is your thing, there are numerous trailheads within minutes from our house, and world class fishing is also nearby. Many guests say this house is like having your own private spa - steam shower, sauna, outdoor hot tub, oversized showers with natural stone, copper bathtub - all nicer than most luxury spas. A tipi behind the house (with firepit inside) is fabulous for the kids, and an oversized firepit outside complete with benches and marshmallow roasting sticks will provide hours of enjoyment. Summertime activities are endless including camping, hiking, fishing, and golf. In the winter you can snowshoe out our back door (snowshoes provided!) or ski any of the world class ski resorts nearby. This log home borders National Forest and the opportunities are endless!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: We live in Denver and manage this property ourselves. It is a rare find -- a true log cabin in a very private setting with all the furnishings and amenities you could ever want. Please contact us for more photos and any questions you might have!

Why the Owner Chose Blue River:
This house has great views and privacy yet is very close to the town of Breckenridge for shopping, skiing and restaurants. This is a true custom crafted log home, not a 'kit' log cabin, located on a very private lot next to National Forest. We believe it is a one of a kind and our guests agree.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is not your typical rental house and is furnished as if it were your own. It has a two-car heated garage, gourmet kitchen, large private hot tub, sauna, steam shower and pool table. For the children we have a huge bunkroom, an authentic Indian tipi complete with firepit and log benches. We provide the 'extras' that are not typically included with other rentals -- tons of board games, Jenga, puzzles, cards, down comforters and pillows, gourmet kitchen provisioned with spices and top of the line cookware. We make every effort to distinguish our house as the best on the market in Breckenridge.
