Property description

We just came on-line again November 19, 2016...And unfortunately, we are booked up for the ski season until May 31, 2016, but we are taking reservations for the Summer of 2017 and beyond! Even the 2017-18 ski season. We book up quickly because it is such a thrill to stay at 12SunnySlope!

12SunnySlope is a fabulous get-away home - close to the Town of Breckenridge for all the charm, dining, activities and excitement and yet away from the high density, parking problems and noises parties coming home and waking you up after a rowdy night in the bars! You come home to total relaxation in a warm, cozy Swiss chalet. Enjoy full kitchen with great cookware and fine place settings for up to 10. Winter is a great value for a group/family ski vacation and in the summer you will feel like you are in heaven on earth with gorgeous views, perfect weather and lots of activities close by.

There is no one above or below you, you've got the National Forest for your back yard that you can look out over on the upstairs deck, and you're on a major thorough fare where town is 5 minute drive away.

The home has two decks, one on each level, a big hot tub and large and small grills. Additionally, you will find a laundry room, wireless and hard-wire high-speed internet, and a genuine wood stove.

When I first bought the property, I was in my late 20's, and I rented it out to the local people who mainly worked at the ski resort. I used the rent money to pay the mortgage and had enough left over to explore the other ski resorts in Colorado. I had a list of the top 21 ski resorts in Colorado that I wanted to visit. When I had skied or visited the Top21 Colorado resorts, I decided to further my horizons to a place called the Alps, the mountain range that extends from Austria to France, with Germany, Switzerland and Italy in between. When I thought of the Alps, I thought of ski racers and steep, steep slopes that would be impossible to navigate. I started in Switzerland because American Airlines had a non-stop flight to ZHR, or Zurich, Switzerland. After that, I went into Austria, then Italy, Germany and finally France. I bought the book 'Ski Europe' by Charlie Leocha a great travel guide on the 75 top resorts in the Alps. My goal was to visit all of the 75 resorts featured in the book, which I'm close to achieving! My most favorite resort was Zermatt. I think that I like it the most because it reminds me of Breckenridge. It was at first a mining town, it is located at the end of the pass, and it has a village at the base of the runs that is in the Swiss-Bavarian style similar to Breckenridge's Victorian style architecture. There are many quaint little restaurants and shops that stay open all year long, not just the ski season. Along the way, I picked up artifacts and pictures from various locations in the Alps. I saved them up for the day I would convert my house from a long-term rental to a place for my young family to have ski vacations in Breckenridge.

A short time after Vail Resorts bought Breckenridge, my kids were ready to ski, so it was a great time realize my dream of a house for my family and friends to gather and have a great time skiing!

Breckenridge opened the slopes up in 1960, after the Eisenhower Tunnel was opened on Interstate Highway I-70. Breckenridge was the last town on the "10 Mile Range", which has 10 mountain peaks from Frisco to Breckenridge, all sequentially numbered 1to 10. The ski slope started on Peak 8 and was popular from the start. The next year Vail opened as another one of the I-70 resorts. Vail and Breckenridge have always been successful with each other and they have always fiercely competed with each other. I love ski resorts; they are the best place for fun, friends and family, and folly! Breckenridge started out (as Americans know it) being a mining town in the late 1800's. It was a bustling place and even had major railroad lines establishing stops in the county, which is named Summit County, of which Breckenridge is the county seat. Gold was discovered in the area and it quickly became the gold standard for mining towns in the area. It had strict Victorian architectural code requirements, and still has elements of enforcement today. You will notice tri-color exterior painting styles on many of the buildings, particularly in downtown Breckenridge. There are many historical buildings and landmarks. It has maintained the historical mining town atmosphere while it added a significant extremely popular ski resort to it long after it was already established.

Vail is what they call a "purpose-built" resort meaning it was built for the purposes of being a resort and that gets highly criticized the the Ski Europe book rating resorts. It's a real nice Bavarian style Village designed specifically after St. Anton am Arlberg in Austria. I've been there, and it's a great resort, too. And both are better because they have each other as neighbors!

So right around the new millennium, or Y2k, and after 911…We embarked on an aggressive plan to renovate 12Sunnyslope. We converted the house from an 'Old West' miners style to a sleek 'High Alpine European' style that I was researching on my trips to the Alps. The hotel that I like the most from my visits was the Alex Hotel in Zermatt. It was owned by Alex, and had been the owner from ground level up. He held the philosophy of always renovating the hotel, with projects every year, not every 15 years. The thing he was most proud of was his pool. He stated his 25 meter pool, cost 4 times more that the average hotel completely furnished. It was a great place to stay and Alex's wife would come by in the evening at dinner and talk to us. I will never forget when they came out with a meat fondue dish. In a lot of resorts in Europe, they have what is called 'half-board' that has nothing to do with snow boarding. Included in the price with your room is breakfast and dinner. At dinner, you have a choice of 2 or 3 different options. Well, they came beaming over with a clear glass bowl of meat that we then supposed to dip into an oil fondue pot. We were impressed at first, but when we eat the meat, it was like stew beef, and we didn't eat but a couple of pieces of meat when my Brother who I was travelling with, apologized profusely to them, and told them we were used to a different kind of meat…it was a cultural difference and just a matter of taste. Well, they weren't amused at all. They were kind of aloof from that point on in the meal, but I think they were really embarrassed that their special meal for the American's was not a hit.

So this is where I adopted the Swiss Hospitality values. Get the house completely renovated, and then improve it with major projects every year. So after we got the place gutted, we gave the house a total facelift. In recent years we have planned out projects to complete. Some of our recent projects have been:

1) Brand new furniture throughout the entire house. After touring Europe extensively, we got a taste for the European flair and brought it back to 12SunnySlope. We have the traditional exterior of something found in the mountains of Switzerland, Austria or Bavarian Germany and the interior from Italy or France.

2) After that we felt that a hot tub would enhance the pleasure of Rocky Mountain day of skiing, hiking, shopping, golfing, fishing or one of the many activities that can be found in Breckenridge. I thought of Alex and his pool that cost so much, so we bought the most expensive, top-of-the-line Jacuzzi brand hot tub. Our guests thank us many times over for the investment of a large hot tub with numerous features to soothe the body and soul after an active day in the mountains. You have 24 access to a private hot tub just 2 steps right outside the back door. They tell us they like the size that can fit up to 7-8 people all at one time, and the fact that it is private that you don't have to share with other people they don't know, and many have commented on going into the hot tub after dark, spending hours bonding with their travel companions; and gazing at the stars above.

3) It was hard to come up with an idea that would beat the hot tub, so we had to think a while. Then we heard that a company was installing gas lines for those who wanted natural gas service, instead of propane. The pipeline is all underground, so there is no unsightly propane tank to look out at anymore. 12Sunnyslope is a better place because of it.

4) We had a great idea next for the inside of the house. We know how much better TV looks with the new HD LED screens. With HD-TVs NFL & college football is almost like you are on the sidelines watching, movies are incredibly life-like and everything is better with HD TVs. So we decided to put a 50' flat screen in the living room with a smaller unit in every bed room. Add to these a blue-ray player and you have entertainment for everyone!

5) Next, we updated the lighting in the house which requires electrical upgrades, and were able to install outdoor lighting for weary travelers to see the property when they arrive many times late in the evening.

6) AND, FINALLY, IN 2016, we added some substantial improvements! We started our bathroom upgrades by adding brand new KOEHLER commodes in both bathrooms. The brand, shiny, white, porcelain, New! We also upgraded up high-speed WIFI and hard wire INTERNET connection, and now have a BRAND NEW DESKTOP COMPUTER. A Microsoft 10, HP Pavilion, HD 24" Touch-Screen ALL-IN-ONE COMPUTER! PLUS, a printer for printing directions, boarding passes, tickets, recipes & even e-mails. So, something virtually no other rental unit offers! THIS IS A HUGE PLUS!

So book your reservation now in the house that is specifically designed for skiers, riders, taking tips from the best resorts around the world, while you enjoy the most beautiful mountain ranges in the world!

12Sunnyslope is the place to stay…when at Breckenride to play

    5949 Highway 9 - House Location View on map

    The property is the first driveway on the right (mountain side of the road) after the third 50 mile an hour sign once you are leaving town. First sign is right after the Conoco station at the South end of town. These instructions work every time!!! We are located on a well maintained State Highway...easy access to town and the ski slopes. No getting stuck in private roads or waiting at traffic lights and pedestrians like you do in town!!! Plenty of free parking is available on the property, too, so you don't have to worry about someone taking your great parking space, like you do at the Condo Developments in town; no worry about whether you will be able to find a spot, either!!!

    Arapahoe National Forest/Miners Trail - Property Line View on map

    Our property line ends at the "Miners Trail", which was an actual miners horse trail made in the 1850's during the Gold Rush. The Miners Trail goes up the mountain and you can see acutual habitat remains of the Miners cabins...and also pretend that you are back in the Gold Rush days of the 1850's!!! It is an amazing authentic historical trail that will lead to the top of the mountain......it is absolutely amazing! The trail is now used for hiking and is well established and in the Summit Hiker, a local book of trails in Summit County. You have a tremendously large back yard to hike, sled for the young or young at heart, view beautiful wildflowers or even show shoe! It is tremendous fun!!!

    Breckenridge Ski Slopes View on map

    The ski slopes are less than 5 minutes away when you stay at 12 Sunnyslope!!! That is all. We recommend that you park at the Gondola (Free and close in parking available), drop off your skis and skiiers and meet your party at the new Gondola Lift just minuites from 12 Sunnyslope. This is the easiest, quickest and most economical way to go...no long lines, no long walks and no fooling around about "ski-on, ski-off" condos that have great views of the parking lot!!! Come stay at 12 Sunnyslope and have spacious, luxurious accomondations for less than the "ski-on, ski-off" condominiums. With the new Gondola Lift, getting on and off the slopes is as easy as turning a key to your ignition!!!

    Downtown Breckenridge View on map

    Breckenridge is an historic mining town/ski resort with all kinds of shops, restaurants and services that the other "purpose built" resorts don't have...in fact, many of the other tourists from other resorts travel to Breckenridge for dinner and shopping because their resort lacks the charm, culture and depth that Breckenridge offers!!! There is no reason to go elsewhere...in fact, Breckenridge rates the #1 ski resort in North America. Stay at 12 Sunnyslope and visit Breckenridge; you will have the trip of a lifetime and keep coming back for more!!!

Car: Recommended

Hiking trails adorn the property lead up to the back lot line half way up the mountain that make for a huge lot, over 10 acres in size all for your great. Former mining trails from the 'Gold Rush' of the 1850's where the miners had donkeys take up supplies and carry down on wooden wagons. Old 'miner's trail', now a hiking trail, boarders the rear property line and the White River National Forest.

If you've ever said "You can't see the forest because of the trees," you have come to the right place! You are literally backing up to a United States Forest, but right off a major thorough fare, and five minutes from town. Life doesn't get any better than this....you really have book your stay at 12SunnySlope, today.

Breckenridge Recreational facility is close by with a lane pool, kids pools and slide, work-out facility with machines and free weights, basketball courts, tennis courts and seasonal playing fields all available for a nominal fee, courtesy of the property owners (taxpayers).

There is now FREE bus service that serves 12SunnySlope. It takes you into Breckenridge in the morning and brings you back in the late afternoon. You should check on-line for the exact schedule because they are always changing to keep up with demand. The bus stop is very close to where you should stay when you vacation at the historic and charming Breckenridge area...that is 12SunnySlope! While you probably shouldn't rely on the bus to do all of your local travels, it can serve as a reliable back-up, or for those that want to get "fresh tracks" early in the morning, while others in the house aren't as motivated as you, because they stayed up late the night before, participating in the many evening activities at the house (hot tub, movies, games, DirecTV) or in town (bars, restaurants, night clubs, shopping, Breck Rec Center) or visiting a near-by resort.

Speaking of which, Breckenridge is known for its vibrant night life. Many of the near-by ski resorts, Key Stone, A-Basin, Copper Mountain and Vail, come to Breckenridge for its wide variety of popular restaurants, shopping and night clubs. Breckenridge got a reputation of being a party town when the then young Baby Boomers came to Colorado to "find themselves". Ski Bums, as they were called were attracted to the year-round town of Breckenridge instead of the near-by "purpose built" resorts that sprung up along I-70 during the 60's, right when the anti-war and anti-establishment eras began. Breckenridge was also the first resort to allow snow boarders on the their mountain, and has International competitions because of it. The boarders were a rowdy lot, and took up the slack of the aging Baby Boomers that had settled down a little and some even cut their hair and got a job in the business world...imagine that! So while the eras have changed, and the active night life tamed a bit, it is still best to stay at 12SunnySlope, where the parking is free and plentiful, and void of the late-night partiers making noise after the bars close, that could wake you up! But you'll be close enough to participate, because it is only a 5 minute drive into town, on a road well traveled.

12SunnySlope, itself, is easy to get to on a road that is constantly maintained by the County snow removal vehicles so there is no need for chains on your tires or rent an expensive 4WD SUVs or Trucks. Just bring your normal car or rent your favorite model and you will be fine. There are no steep, narrow roads you need to take, either. In fact, you only need to go on two roads from the Denver International Airport (DIA).

From DIA airport, take I-70 West for 76.9 miles, take Exit 203 right at Frisco. Once up the exit, circle around the turn-about, proceed 10-11 miles on Highway 9 thru the Town of Breckenridge until you get to the Conoco Gas Station on the right. From that point it is about 3.5 miles. An easy way to remember where the house is, instead of stressing every house you see, is once past the Conoco station, count three 50 mile-an-hour (50 mph) speed limit signs. We are the first driveway on the right, after the third 50 mph speed sign. Slow down as approaching the 3rd sign and make a hard right hand turn into the property. It is almost a hair-pin turn, and you will know you are at the right house because you will see the "12 SunnySlope" sign, much like a U.S. Forest Service's signs that are dark brown with yellow lettering. The letters are carved out of the wood sign. The house is the same color brown as the sign and the trim is the same color as the lettering.

Think 1, 2, 3 - the 1st driveway, on the 2nd road you have been on, after passing 3 50 mph signs. The driveway is big, and is well lit, which was a recent improvement of our constant updating of the property to keep it in top shape. We encourage guests to come back each year to see the new improvements! We always welcome you at 12SunnySlope!

12SunnySlope is the place to stay...while at Breckenridge to play!

Year Purchased: 1985

About: I am a CPA and live in Dallas, Texas. I have a family of four with two daughters. We love to travel and going to the mountains is fun in the Summer and Winter. I have my own CPA Firm, so I work hard so I can get away and enjoy life. When it comes time to take a break, I love to go to the Colorado Rocky Mountains in Breckenridge! I bought this house because of the beautiful mountains and the tax benefits....little did I know how much fun everyone would have at 12SunnySlope! We have had years of memories and love coming here time after time. Everyone loves the layout of the house and the beautiful land and forest we are on.....everything is perfect; it is the perfect place to stay!!!

Why Sunny Slope (Breckenridge, CO, USA):
Of all the things there is to do on earth....skiing is my favorite thing to do. Next is traveling, so this is a great place to have. In Winter, the skiing is fantastic and Breckenridge is one of the best and most popular resorts in North America and is becoming a world destination. Since then, the area has grown and it has become a year-round resort, with tons of outdoor activities. The Summer is one of the best seasons, too. The town is charming and there are a lot of shops and restaurants and things for visitors to do. You need to come to Breckenridge, Colorado and you will want to come back.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Breckenridge is one of the most beautiful places on earth and it is a friendly town that dates back to the Gold Rush Era of the late 1900's. We are located on a major artery just South of town, in a valley between the 10 Mile Range and The Continental Divide. The views are massive and incredible, a forest is your back yard and you are close to everything, but don't have to share everything with your neighbors, like parking spots, hot tubs, and walls and ceilings! We are conveniently located 3 minuites from town, but away from the noisey partiers, crowded condominiums and ubiquitous restrictions in town. With the new Gondola at the base of the parking lot in town, staying here is the best idea since the high speed chair lifts! In the summer, you have 10 acres of your own to explore and enjoy, away from crowds and closer to nature. And the price is incredibly reasonable, too! It may well be the best deal in Breckenridge.... visit us soon.
