              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: The owners are Midwest natives who relocated to Colorado in 1976. Their main home was in Boulder, Colorado but they have owned a second home in Breckenridge since 1977. They retired to Breckenridge in 2003 and are now year round residents of Breckenridge. They have adult children and grandchildren. She is retired from the staff and faculty of the University of Colorado in Boulder. Her field is Early Childhood Development. She is a nationally known consultant in the campus childcare field. He is retired from his 'earlier life' in the corporate world where he has CEO and interim executive experience with multiple NASDAQ listed public companies. In his 'life after his life', he served as a professional Ski Instructor at the Breckenridge Ski Area. He is PSIA certified and has completed eight years of teaching. They both enjoy gardening, flowers, hiking, fishing and alpine skiing. Both enjoy family, theater, concerts, international travel, dining with friends and a good book.

              Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
              Tarn View House was built in 2000 and acquired by the owners in 2005. The home was built with a stand-alone private 'caretakers apartment' complete with its own private parking, private deck and private entrance. Breckenridge may be a vacation resort area, but it is our permanent home. We have been avid fans of B & B lodging during our European travels. We enjoyed the uniqueness of each B & B. We wanted to share our suite apartment with guests who are looking for something more than 'just another hotel room'.

              The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
              IDEAL FOR SINGLES, COUPLES, PARENTS WITH YOUNG CHILDREN OR PARENTS VISITING ADULT CHILDREN WHO LIVE AND WORK IN BRECKENRIDGE. Not just a hotel room, the studio is completely equipped with a complete kitchen, dining area, king size bed, queen size sleeper sofa, Comcast HD, Flat Screen HDTV, free high speed broadband WiFi internet connection, DVD and CD player. The setting is very private. While on the private deck, guests find themselves in the midst of a developing Aspen grove full of wild flowers and tall native spruce, fir and pine trees. The studio apartment is a part of the main home, yet feels like a separate small cottage. Ideal for couples or couples with small children. While in a private forest setting, Tarn View House is but minutes from the village center, free parking lots and free shuttle buses that then transport you directly to the gondola and all mountain base areas. Sleds and Snowshoes are available for guest use. Guidebooks and local information are available from the owners.
