About Kirsten Liston
I left my job in Minnesota and moved to Colorado in 1999 to ski and mountain-bike. After a few years in Breckenridge, I took a regular job again and moved to the Denver area, although I still get up as often as I can.
Kirsten Liston purchased this Condo in 1997
Why Kirsten Liston chose Peak 8
I think Breckenridge is the perfect combination of great mountain, great town, and convenience to Denver and its major airport. When I found this particular condo, right near the Snowflake lift and a short walk from the center of town, I knew it was perfect and I made an offer before the weekend was over.
What makes this Condo unique
Close to town, close to a lift, ski-in--this location is terrific. The creek outside is fantastic in the spring and summer. It's just a short walk from the center of Main Street and lots of great restaurants. In the spring and summer, I love the back deck at the Kenosha Steakhouse, which has good brews and barbeque. You can also walk to a sporting goods shop for ski and bike rentals: Lone Star Sports, right at the bottom of the hill.

Damage and incidentals
You will be responsible for any damage to the rental property caused by you or your party during your stay.
literally across the street from the Snowflake lift, 5 minute walk to hot tub and pool and 10 minute walk to town center this is perfect! Clean and everything we needed including red foxes visiting in the morning! We were caught here halfway thru the corona virus shutdown but the skiing we got in along with fabulous restaurants gave us enough to know we will be back. The owner Ned was nice enough to let us do a late checkout since our flight wasn’t leaving til night time and we didnt want to be in the airport any longer than necessary. Ned was great and we look forward to another visit!
The property was in a great location to the hill and was prefect to two people. Will stay here again.
Great location & View
Really enjoyed the excellent location and the beautiful view out the main windows. Just lovely!
We had a blast! The unit was perfect for what we needed. If you're looking to be skiing all day and going out to to dinner at night, this unit is for you.
Perfect for me and the Hubs!
It was perfect for just the 2 of us! We LOVED that we didn't need to walk too far in our ski gear to get to the chair lift , and taking the 4'clock run back to the condo was perfect! The condo is on the lower floor - just a few steps up - again, a blessing when in ski gear. :0) We are also walkers - so I loved that the main town was just down the hill, and we could walk around to the shops and restaurants; and if we were a little sore from all of that walking - we could grab the free bus and head up the hill. Overall - it was a great stay; the facility was clean (some dust in the areas that are often overlooked - like the table base and chairs - I only noticed because I did some yoga stretches and was face to face with the table base); lots of pots, and skillets - I would bring my own if I drive in next time, metal tools and non-stick do not mix (I'm sure from other renters and not the owner) they are fine- i used them, i'm just picky about non-stick skillets :0) It does have a small dorm style fridge- had some trouble figuring out the right temp. Even though there were only 2 of us - the little dishwasher was handy! We did not use the fire place. It is tight - like a hotel room with a kitchen-- which was perfect for us, nice and cozy. I would definitely book here again!
Thanks for the great comments and thoughtful notes. I'll replace the missing utensils. I didn't realize the plastic ones had disappeared. (Sounds as if I may need to replace some non-stick pans also). It'll be just a question of when I can get in between guests to do so.
It sounds as if you had a great time. It's a terrific location.
