About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12-14)

As you walk up to this delightful home located in scenic Breckenridge, you will feel comfortable about your upcoming stay. You're in the upscale Highlands Subdivision across from Breckenridge Ski Resort and a short drive away from Copper Mountain, Keystone, Arapahoe Basin, Vail and Beaver Creek.

Upon entering, the place opens up to you with far larger dimensions than appear from outside photos. The designer decorated furnishings are exquisite, the fireplace stunning with its half metal, half stone chimney stretching all the way up to the cathedral ceiling, a giant HD flat screen TV front and center, a special view (if it’s not snowing) of the Rockies right in front of you, a bear staring down at you. Off to the left is a large kitchen-bar-dinette area complete with all the tools you need to make most anything, well, that I can think of. On the right is a beautiful master bedroom, with a fireplace, huge bed, connected bathroom, and deck.

Upstairs you find a junior master bedroom with a queen bed and its own bathroom. Then passing across a walkway that overlooks the living room you arrive at another master bedroom. It contains a large sleigh bed, a fireplace and a balcony.The bedroom's bathroom is large and beautiful, with a jetted bath and separate shower. .

Heading downstairs you come to the game room, a second full kitchen, a dart game area, and the bunk room. There is a full bath in this area. Outside is the hot tub and a large patio area.

The game room contains a fireplace, TV, and a high caliber, professional pool table. The bedroom contains six beds (two captain's beds with a trundle bed under each). The hot tub is top class with play room for 8 and room for drinks, martinis or cokes as the case may be.

Great Location to Breckenridge slopes and downtown area

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time staying at this rental. It's location is very convenient for skiing at Breck and when you want to go to town for dinner, shopping or just wandering around.

The house is showing a little of its age. Some dust and cobwebs, but overall it is OK.

Steve and his sons get 5 stars for responding the day before Christmas when the refrigerator did not work and the day after Christmas when the garbage disposal was leaking water under the sink. They quickly replaced the fridge and disposal with new units so it was all good.

The house was amazing. Perfect for our group.

  • 5 of 5

I would definitely go back. The owners know what they are doing and all the appliances/tv/music were very easy to figure out. Our group had a great time staying in the house as well as using the convenience of a $12 Uber ride to get to Main Street, Breckenridge.

Great Place, Great Price, and Great Owner

  • 5 of 5

Our family just got the chance to spend the weekend in this house and it was amazing! The Owner made the rental process so easy. House was in great condition when we arrived and we were pleasantly surprised by the layout of the house. There was plenty of room for our group.

The location cannot be beat. Easy drive to downtown, but nicely secluded if that's what you are looking for.

The hiking trails nearby were great and easy to get to and navigate.

We will be staying here again for sure!
