About the Property

5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps up to 13) hot tub, Peak 8 views, so close to slope

Just a few minutes from town and ski slopes, yet immersed in nature. Moose, elk and so much wildlife roam the mountain.

World class trails for hiking, cross country skiing, mountain biking, snowmobiling....all from the front door.

This log home sits on five and a half acres, surrounded by mountains and national forest. Located two and a half miles from Breckenridge Village makes the location close to everything the town and ski slopes have to offer. But the best part is you will be nestled in your mountain cabin home, away from it all. Surrounded by historic mining ruins make the location interesting and nostalgic. Remember, this is how Breckenridge began over 150 years ago!

The house is built with hand crafted and peeled chinked logs from Canada. There's a comforting wood burning stove in the center of the main floor for character and comfort. It creates a warmth in the winter that gathers everyone for a movie, meal or game of pool.

From any window you'll experience a breathtaking view of the Rocky Mountains and national forest.

The kitchen is completely stocked with everything needed to prepare any size meal.
Movie collection and family games can be found in living room
Large 8 person hot tub, very private with more mountain views
Streets are plowed regularly

Easy access ground floor ski entrance with cabinets and racks for equipment. Maps of Vail, Keystone and Breckenridge line the walls to make it easy to plan your day.

No smoking please.

About Breckenridge VIllage and Ski Resort:

9,600 ft Base Elevation

12,998 ft Peak Elevation

3,398 ft Vertical Drop

Breckenridge is an extremely popular resort located in the largest historic district in Colorado. There are 2378 acres to explore at Breckenridge! Intermediate runs and cruisers come in clusters, especially around Peak 7 and Peak 9. Recently expanded Peak 8 takes you to extreme terrain you could previously only hike to. If you like bowls and chutes, this zone is where you’ll want to go for most of your riding. Breckenridge also has 5 professionally maintained terrain parks, complete with halfpipes and superpipes. Though the ski resort and town have transformed Breckenridge, it has kept its relaxed and casual atmosphere of days past. An old mining town, old Victorian houses can still be seen, and mine merchandise can still be found in local stores. If you are looking for night-life activities, you will have no trouble finding them with over 40 bars and pubs in the slope-side town. Overall, Breckenridge is a great place for both beginner, expert and intermediate skiers and snowboarders alike and the town offers a nice change of pace from the action packed slopes!


Owner info

About the owner: We love the mountains because they are wonderful all seasons. There isn't a time of year we aren't ready to drop everything and visit Breckenridge. Hiking, distance biking, mountain biking, skiing, snowboarding, white water rafting, snowmobiling..... The activities and exploring is endless!

Why the Owner Chose Breckenridge, CO, USA:
It's so convenient and close to down town, yet you would never know it. From the house you can cross country ski, snowmobile, hike or bike some of the best trails in the Rockies. When it's warm enough we bike to Main Street for coffee or happy hour :) We wanted a complete log constructed home, not just log and wood accents. Why come to Colorado if you're not going to stay in a mountain style home? We can look at sheet rock walls and ceilings anywhere, right?! :)

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Location! The log construction is so unique to the mountains, the log burning stove is beyond charming and is in the center of the main floor, so much better than in a corner or on a wall. The ski entrance is awesome. The hot tub is private and the views are so pretty. It's location makes it wonderful.....we see mountain wild life all the time! Obviously there are many other homes in the Breckenridge are with mountain views and convenience to slopes. But they are almost always close to other houses, often very close. This is not the case with this home. It really feels like a mountain home, boasting views of the ski runs from the living room. It's quiet with a cozy feel, , nestled in the mountain forest. The old mining bunkers by the drive remind us of Breckenridge history.
