About the property

Luxury Lodge, 5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14-16) New bar-restaurant next door

Bella Monte lodge, the best that Breckenridge has to offer! This executive home feels like a big mountain lodge with high end finishes throughout from granite countertops and high end appliances to comcast HD big screen TV and sonos sound. Home is also perfect for Weddings! Home has 'Breck Air' air conditioning.....1 window open for low, 2 windows for medium and 3 windows for high! Located up Boreas Pass Road. Walking distance to bar, restaurant, and on the year round free shuttle route, there are hiking/biking/cross country ski trails out the back door. Many guests hike the trail into town and take the shuttle bus back.

Lay in bed watching TV and see three 14,000 ft mountains and numerous 13,000 ft mountains along with Breckenridge ski area. Views are the best you’ve ever seen! Wedding or large group and need more space? There’s a hotel bar-restaurant a short walk away and plenty of off street parking. Large party tents, chairs, tables, heaters, etc can be rented locally and hooked onto the two car garage. In the winter you have the free sledding hill in within walking distance, and yes there are sleds at Bella Monte.

Several cross country ski trails including the famous “Baker Tank Trail” are within a mile of Bella Monte. The free shuttle bus takes you to the gondola to access all of world famous Breckenridge ski area, enjoy après ski in town, drinks, dinner, and shopping, and then come home on the free shuttle anytime up until midnight. In the summer take the free shuttle to the Peak 8 fun Park including the famous alpine slide, bungee trampoline, maze, mini golf, or take a mountain bike up the lift and ride trails down the mountain.

Simply hop on your bike, go 10 miles downhill to Frisco and take the free shuttle all the way back to the lodge with your bike. Inside the home find a master bath with a large Jacuzzi tub and a large steam shower with 3 shower heads. A real motorcycle, canoe, and moose mounted on the wall in the living room makes it unique. Extra large kitchen with commercial gas stove, double oven, and meal seating for 18 make meals at home fun.

Big screen TV in the living room can be watched all through the upstairs with sonos sound in the kitchen and throughout the house as well as outside. Downstairs find another big screen TV with surround sound, wet bar and foosball. Four of the bedrooms are suites with baths; the fifth bedroom has bunk beds with bath across the hall. There are three gas fireplaces inside and one outside, on the deck.

Imagine skinny dipping in the private (blocked from view) hot tub that’s half under the deck for full snow enjoyment with mountain views in the background. The lodge is well stocked with games and books along with DVD’s.

About Amber Torres

Ed and Diane Beaumont purchased Bella Monte Lodge in 2005. The name Bella Monte means “beautiful mountain” in both Italian and Spanish and Beaumont in French. We call it a lodge because we seem to always fill the place; breakfast for 16 or more is pretty common. Diane is a Branch Manager/Owner of Benchmark Home Mortgage originating loans in both Summit County and in the Woodland Park area while Ed is in Real Estate. We have five children and four grandchildren. We also have a home in Colorado Springs. We both back country ski and down hill ski in the winter. With the abundance of trails in the area we enjoy back country as well as downhill. Taking the grandkids and visiting children to the Carter Park sledding hill is also one of our regular activities.

We love the quiet off season with two for one dinner specials and other deals found in the free Summit Daily News. Summers find us on our dirt bikes and ATV along with hiking and mountain biking. Every mountain you can see from the lodge, 10 in all, we have either hiked to the top of or rode our dirt bikes to the top. We have hiked every mountain pass in Summit County and mountain biked nearly every trail. We frequent the $29.00 “happy hour golf” deal at the Breckenridge course and have golfed on every course in the county. There is so much to do in Breckenridge year round that time goes by too quickly!

Picture Note: Ed & Diane are on the top of Father Dyer Peak, with peak ten in the background, Dillon reservoir to the right of it and Belle Monte Lodge is on the far right.

Amber Torres purchased this lodge in 2005

Why Amber Torres chose Breckenridge

We chose to purchase in Breckenridge because Diane and I both love the outdoors and we never run out of things to do here.

What makes this lodge unique

Swinging Ski chair on the front porch, new bar-restaurant next door, best views you'll ever see. Quiet and out of town yet shuttle bus or drive to town in a few minutes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We can never thank you enough for allowing us and our children and grandchildren to stay in your beautiful home. The kitchen was a very busy place cooking breakfast and dinner for about 20 people! But it handled it beautifully and they all enjoyed skiing, snowmobiling and shopping. What an opportunity and a pleasure to have all of our family together in one place. Thank you again

Property is beautiful and well maintained

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 13 (four families) were impressed with the view of the area & the spaciousness of the home. Had a few power outages, but were very short in duration. Did lose wifi for a short period of time. Owner responded very promptly on Christmas Day to our request for advice on restoring wifi & it worked. Kitchen & dining are well suited for a large family. Property was clean & well maintained. Family enjoyed skiing, skating tubbing & sledding...all reasonable close. One area that could be improved are the bedroom mattresses. Some need to be replaced. Did have a great experience, so would recommend to friends & relatives.

We had an absolutely amazing Thanksgiving at Bella Monte. The views were spectacular. The gourmet kitchen made us feel right at home and the the accommodations were perfect. I did not want to leave. Our time there exceeded our expectations in every way. Lovely home....we hope to stay there again.

Amazing House

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic accomadations for our four families. Very well stocked with every day needs. Breathtaking views in the clear mornings and also when the occasional afternoon showers rolled in. Owners were very proactive in informing us about the house (and other activities), and responded quickly to our questions.

Fantastic. Not a single complaint.

  • 5 of 5

If you are not used to the altitude, the lack of oxygen, and the breathtaking experience, might kill grandma. Ours survived thankfully. This was a top notch place to stay. It's stunning views, wonderful amnesties, and welcoming atmosphere was superb. I am not a rich man, but staying here made me feel like a king.

My only gripe would have been it's projection (albeit huge) TV was a bit outdated, but we hardly watched it, the proper TV was in the entertainment area in the lower level. One huge bonus was the built in surround sound Sonos system with music channels, we were just relaxing with subtle music on all day, and you could choose what rooms to broadcast in. Kids loved the board games, Foosball table, hot tub, and the Foxes that hung around a lot (probably not wise to feed them).

Beautiful view & perfect location, but house itself was AMAZING!!

  • 5 of 5

Bella Monte was perfect for our large family, it had everything and more we needed. The owners have equipped this vacation property with everything you could need, and more. Wonderful deck and hot tub plus spacious basement. The sun sets were absolutely beautiful, with abundant wildlife. We saw a red fox and and enjoyed seeing moose grazing right in the back yard (they did not seem to mind our presence one bit). The sound system was pretty awesome and the high tech older kids were very impressed. Everything about this property, including communication with the owner is 5 STAR!

Thank you for sharing your home!
