4 bedroom + loft, log home nestled in the woods minutes from Breckenridge
SEVERAL PRIME SKI WEEKS AND WEEKENDS STILL AVAILABLE! If you are looking for a authentic cabin experience in Colorado but with new, high-end finishes in the bathrooms, kitchen and designer furniture, you found it! The Spruce Moose is a cabin with 4 bedrooms, a loft with a queen pull out bed and a bunk room kids love. The cabin is named for Marty the Moose who hangs in the main floor living room.
This is a pet-free home so no dogs, cats and other non-human friends, please.
This lovingly remodeled home is being offered as a VRBO rental for the first time. We preserved its high mountain character (and a few rough edges) but worked with one of Denver's hottest interior designers to take the bathrooms, kitchen and living spaces up a notch.
NICE FLOOR PLAN FOR GROUPS AND FAMILIES - The garden level area has two bedrooms, its own kitchen, living room, laundry, bathroom and shower. The main floor includes a living room, fire stove, modern kitchen and comfortable eating area that accommodates 6 adults and 4 children. The top floor of the home includes a cozy loft that acts as a third living room and/or TV area. The romantic master bedroom on the top floor has a gas fireplace and attached ensuite featuring Italian tile and extra large shower.
GREAT LOCATION - You are nestled in the trees but just five minutes away from the ski lift and the heart of Breckenridge with all of its shops, restaurants, bars galleries and activities. The cabin is a short walk to the nearest bus stop. End the day roasting marshmallows and sipping wine at our private fire pit. Live moose, elk and deer are regular visitors in these woods so don't be surprised if one of the 'real locals' walks by! Hiking, biking, fishing and other activities all within walking distance.
Modern amenities: TVs, cable, high speed internet, 2 well- equipped kitchens, 2 laundry areas, wood stove in main living room, gas fireplace in master bedroom, stereo, grill, and fire pit area (including retired ski lift as part of the seating).
The remodel was just completed and we are continuing to decorate. We'll post updated photos soon.

About Barb and Jim Chesnutt
My wife Barb and I have worked and traveled in developing countries throughout the world, but for the past 20 years have always loved coming home to Colorado. Our first home together was in the Mountains. Buying and renovating the Spruce Moose along with our 7-year old daughter was a labor of love. This is our happy place. We hope you will make great memories here too and tell us about them!
Barb and Jim Chesnutt purchased this Cabin in 2016
Why Barb and Jim Chesnutt chose Blue River
A relative bought this property about 20 years ago when it was first built. We stayed here several times and were taken by the area, the sound of the wind in the trees, hiking and biking on the nearby trail, having a glass of wine by the fire pit and watching the sun set behind a mountain ridge of beautiful Aspen trees. When our relative was ready to sell we jumped on the opportunity.
What makes this Cabin unique
This cabin is ideal for large families, two families or small groups. We think it is a special place. We love that we may see moose and deer wonder through the woods just a few feet away. But we are also just 5 minutes from downtown Breckenridge and the ski mountain. We are close to the action, but far enough away to let Colorado's high country beauty make us forget our cares.

We loved our stay at the cabin. Jim was so kind to accommodate us. Went out and bought a gumbo pot for us. Moved the TV into the living room for us. Above and beyond customer service! Wish we would’ve known all of the extra staples/supplies that were on hand. Wouldn’t have had to buy nearly as much. So generous! Will return!
Fabulous home for a big family get away!
We had a wonderful time at this perfect home! Plenty of room for 3 couples and 3 kids. Comfortable, scenic and just a short drive to the lifts!
Wonderful Vacation in Breckenridge with the perfect location!
Beautiful, updated cabin that was located just a few miles to Main Street in Breckenridge. Absolutely no complaints whatsoever about the cabin! It was very clean and fully stocked with everything in the kitchen you could need to cook a few meals, which we did during our stay. The cabin itself was very well maintained and looked exactly as the pictures portray. The layout of the cabin worked perfectly for us. The main floor living room / kitchen / dining room was very comfortable; my husband and I stayed on the top floor that had a sitting area for watching TV. Our daughter’s family stayed in the lower level that also had a kitchen, living ring room with TV, two bedrooms and bath. All the bed rooms were comfortable and clean. Overall, we would definitely stay at this location again.
The cabin was above and beyond what we expected!
Easily the best Homeaway rental we have had from beginning to end.
Perfect for a big group!
Beautiful and perfectly stocked home with top notch furnishings, towels, etc. We had everything we needed and more, and Jim was so nice to help answer all of our questions promptly! The home has at least one bedroom and bathroom on all 3 floors so each each couple/family in our group could have their privacy! Perfect distance from Breck - just a 5 min drive to the gondola/Main street, yet just far enough away to feel quiet and secluded!
A spacious, well-stocked and up to date wooded cabin.
Conveniently located between Breckenridge and Fairplay., this cabin has all one needs. It is a large unit that could easily accommodate groups or families of many sizes.
