La Barranca is located in beautiful Valley of the Blue just 6 miles south of Main Street Breckenridge. Our guests have enjoyed the serene location and majestic views while being just a 10 minute drive to some of the best skiing, boarding and outdoor fun our country has to offer. There are 2 fourteeners to climb in the area, Mount Quandry being the most popular and best for non-experts. The trail head is just a mile away from the house. Continue south over Hoosier pass (go in the evening and see stars at the top like you have never seen them!) to Park County and the charming towns of Alma and Fairplay. I-70 and the town of Frisco are approximately 16 miles north where you have quick access to the Vail and Copper Mountain ski resorts. Keystone and Arapahoe Basin are just a few miles east via Swan Mountain Road off Hwy 9 at Farmer's Corner.
Other Activities: Hiking, Rafting, Kayaking
Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: Avid skiers and outdoor enthusiasts, we love to play in the mountains during all times of the year. We own Environs Residential, a design/build construction company and spend most of our time in Atanta, GA. Terry, a native of Ohio, was a resident of Breckenridge for 18 years prior to moving east. Dawn, a native of Tennessee, has lived in Atlanta since 1988. We love to travel to exciting new places and always look for spots where we can enjoy the outdoors or city culture. In addition to playing outside, we love to cook, appreciate nice wine and entertain our friends and neighbors. Sharing our little slice of heaven in the mountains is especially enjoyable. We love the comments and photos our guests send us after their stay.
Why the Owner Chose Valley of the Blue, Breckenridge, CO, USA:
It took us 5 minutes in the house to decide to purchase it. A long-time friend of Terry's with whom we were having a beer a the local pizza joint, Fatty's, told us about it and drove us out to the place. Loving the location and of course the stream, we immediatley called another friend and realtor, Stephanie Epps, who got us in to see it the next day. We ended up buying the house along with both lots on either side! We love Valley of the Blue and our quiet street high above Hwy 9. The neighbors are great and the stars at night are magical.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our mountain cottage is only 6 miles down Hwy 9 from Breckenridge. Far enough to have privacy and close enough for a trip to town for dinner. We love the serenity of the mountains, the stars at night from the hot tub and the views of Quandry Mountain from the deck and living room. It's small enough so that a couple can enjoy it to themselves without breaking the bank :-)
