Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great house, was only a couple hours away so it was easy to get to. The house was amazing! When it says everything is at the house they mean it, we brought food and drinks and that was it. My family and I will definitely rent this again, probably for a week, it was so relaxing we didn't want to leave. I would highly recommend.

Amazing Property! We lived like Kings and Queens for a week.

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the place! Close to town with Amazing views. The deck with the hot tub was awesome overlooking the valley. The amenities were awesome, hand carved log beds, 2 fireplaces, movie room with super comfy couch, pool table, fire pit with unreal views.... Where do I stop. Can't wait to get back. I have stayed at several places in the area and none compared to this.

Florida family's white Christmas

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I with are 3 children stayed here over Christmas. We had a blast! The kids loved the large areas outside for snow ball fights and building snowmen. The kitchen had just about everything you would need. They kept the driveway cleared to get us out when we needed. Still recommend 4 wheel drive if your staying in winter months. We drove into Breckinridge almost everyday did not have to many issues on the mountain roads. (We are from Florida so any snow is a problem for us). If we make it back to Breckinridge we will definitely call Susan for a cabin. Thanks for giving us a great white Christmas

My Stay at Glacier Ridge

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed at this property on two occassions and our stay was excellent. The home is beautiful, very clean, and has unbelieveable views. It's just a short driving distance from Breckenrige and all the other surrounding ski areas.

This is a great home for anybody with families to stay at, and also has an outside hot tub which is excllent to have after a day of skiing, hiking or any other recreational activity in the mt's. I give this residence a huge thumbs up.
