House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4 Adults)

So we've added a new Keurig with a carafe option for those old schoolers (Terry) who like a "pot of coffee". The hot tub is serviced and ready for winter. Reminder to winter guests AN ALL-WHEEL-DRIVE VEHICLE IS REQUIRED. Roads and driveway are serviced but snow storms are inevitable.

Wake up to beautiful mountain views and the sound of a stream outside your window or beautiful drifts of untouched snow. After a day of skiing or hiking, enjoy our fabulous Jacuzzi hot tub or fire up one of several fire options while watching the sunset. Activities are numerous in both summer and winter and include world class skiing/snow boarding, cross country skiing, mountain biking, rafting and hiking right outside the door or just minutes down the road.

Our cottage is equipped with everything you might need to prepare a quick snack or a gourmet meal. Nice glassware, dishes, linen, cooking tools and serving pieces allow you to enjoy this get-away as much as you would your own home. There is also a Weber charcoal grill and a gas grill on the expansive deck that wraps the back of the house. With 2 fireplaces and a pleasing decor, get ready to relax and smile a lot. It is truly a special place.

Experience our wonderful mountain cottage. We know you will enjoy it as much as we do...

About Dawn Landau

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.

Dawn Landau purchased this House in 2006

Why Dawn Landau chose Valley of the Blue

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.

What makes this House unique

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 :-)

                                                              We had a wonderful stay at La Barranca. The home is secluded but still within easy reach of town and the ski hill. It is well appointed, and the kitchen and hot tub are terrific. We loved our time there, and we'll be back!

                                                              Cozy and private get-away with every amenity

                                                              My adult daughter and I enjoyed this property for a ski weekend. We loved that it was close to Breckenridge, but in a quiet scenic area that afforded privacy. The hot tub on the wrap-around deck was the highlight of the weekend. This home is beautifully and comfortably decorated. Dawn provided every amenity including robes and slippers to lounge in after soaking in the hot tub, fragrant candles, and a well stocked kitchen. We loved the property in the winter setting and hope to return to enjoy it in the summer!

                                                              Cozy bday weekend in the mountains

                                                              Comfy, great kitchen to cook from, kids loved the electric blanket on their bed! Super cozy fireplaces (wood burning in dining room, gas in living room), cool coffee table books and fun family games. Hot tub was a perfect place to relax after a day on the slopes. Downsides are uncovered parking & very steep drive - we were stuck in snow storm - but they had sand and boughs which helped us dig out. Also it was freezing when we arrived, but I guess that'll happen between guests. No cell service in unit, but they did have great WiFi and a landline phone. Owners were extremely responsive and kind. Would recommend & consider staying again -- the wrap around porch should be enjoyed in spring/ summer/ fall!

                                                              My wife and I stayed at La Barranca for Thanksgiving. The home has everything you need to relax and enjoy Colorado. We loved enjoying a cup of coffee in the mornings looking out the windows enjoying the beautiful scenery and relaxing in the hot tub in the evenings. We can't wait to schedule our next visit!!!

                                                              La Barranca was such an amazing place to stay. The view of the mountains, wrap around deck, hot tub, fireplace, being tucked away surrounded by pine trees - it was perfect! My wife and I stayed for a week and it was truly lovely. Only a 10 minute drive into town as well.

                                                              We had probably one of the most memorable trips we have ever had here. We wouldn't change a thing.
