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.

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!
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.
