Property description

What makes our totally remodeled mountain home so special?

• True ski in – right to the elevator, if you like
• Quick lift access – walk to gondola or free bus right in front
• Four queen beds – handcrafted Western pine logs
• Great location – one block to historic downtown restaurants, bars and shops
• Western décor – antiques, photos, cowboy chaps, Indian crafts & more
• Elevator & hot tubs – you’ll be happy for them at day’s end

Our spacious condo is in a great location for both skiing and nightlife. The layout works well for families or couples: two private suites, each with full bath & each with two queen-sized handcrafted Western pine log beds. This is our second home and we’ve outfitted it like a home – not a motel. A few other highlights: three LED TV sets with DVD players, Old Hickory log cabin dining chairs, full size washer and dryer, 112 channel HD cable TV, gas fireplace, quick recovery hot water heater, new living room furniture, ultra-quiet dish washer, secure WiFi, gas fireplace, and more.

Our slope-side location directly on the Four O’Clock Ski Run makes getting on and off the slopes a delight. After you’ve enjoyed your runs, you’ll be soaking in one of our hot tubs while other skiers are still walking back to their condos. Ski access is by free bus right out front to all lifts and other resorts, such as Keystone, Copper Mountain, or Arapahoe Basin. Or head for the gondola (2 blocks) or Snowflake Lift (1200 feet). For fun in the evening, you are only a three minute walk from the heart of downtown.

The kitchen is well-equipped to eat in, but restaurants and bars in all price ranges are within two blocks. An outdoor gas grill is convenient for your use, and a supermarket is a few blocks away. The floor-to-ceiling, south-facing windows provide warmth and a view of Mount Baldy from the private balcony.

Your car is protected in covered parking within the building and the elevator is a big help in getting your belongings to the unit. A ski closet immediately by the front door protects your ski equipment. Enjoy our snow sleds, books, games and movies.

The fun Western décor will provide plenty of conversation. Along with Western posters, old cowboy photos and antique photos of Breckenridge, you’ll find authentic Indian handicrafts, Cowboy chaps, hats and spurs, and a real deerskin Indian shirt. Check out the Clint Eastwood movie poster in Portuguese.

International visitors love our place -- 2016/17 will see guests from New Zealand, Australia, and England.

Ask about our weekly rate discount.

And, please, for the comfort of all our guests, NO pets and NO smoking in the unit, on balconies, or on the grounds. Sawmill Creek is a smoke-free facility.

Right here -- ski right to the condo

The gondola is three blocks away, although some guests walk there, it

can be a difficult walk in snow and ice carrying skis and boots. We prefer the free full size bus that picks up immediately in front of the building and takes you within minutes to the base mountain. The Snowflake Lift is 1200 feet, but that is a slight uphill walk which many find difficult given the altitude, snow, ice, etc.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Colorado is our summer home and we love it here. After growing up in Colorado, we were finally able to return after living in the East for many years.

Why the Owner Chose Historic District, Breckenridge, CO, USA:
Breckenridge is probably the most fun town in Colorado with wonderful downhill skiing, snowboarding, cross country, skating, and snow shoeing. Tons of restaurants and activities. You'll love it as much as we do.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Location, location, location -- ski to the door, free bus to all slopes right out front, one block to historic downtown.
