About Bob Collins

I've been a Breckenridge local for 23 years. I build custom homes in the area and rent some of them, including this one, short term, seasonally or long term.

Mostly though, I'm a skier and snowmobiler in the winter and mountain biker and four wheeler in the summers.

I personally manage this property and can make whatever deals suits us each on the spot.

Why Bob Collins chose Forest Hills

I built this magnificent home because of the views and proximity to the Breckenridge town center and ski area.

It's only a couple of hours drive to the Denver, Grand Junction and Colorado Springs airports, an hour from world class whitewater rafting and fishing, minutes to the ski resort and town and walking distance to hunting and the back-country. Despite it's proximity, this home is very secluded on ten acres- nearest neighbor is over 1000 feet away!

I first vacationed in Breck in 1979 and was hooked. After school , I moved here permanently. I came for the winter and stayed for the summer.

Spring and fall are great times to visit; most restaurants have 2 for 1 specials and there is no waiting!

What makes this house unique

Playground for the kids! Swings set, fort, jungle gym, trapeze swing, slides, balance beam, mountain bike trail from patio, horse shoe pits and a gas outdoor fire pit with a curved stone amphitheater.

Killer dollhouse room in the loft. Five structures, ski chalet, mall, restaurant and riding arena and stables- lots of dolls and horse figures. endless fun for young girls!

I especially enjoy the morning hikes, walking the dog after coffee. There is mountain bike downhill course bordering the property. The views of the ski area and sunset are spectacular.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a great stay in this gorgeous home. The families enjoyed the cooking. The kitchen was perfect, plenty of room. The kids kept busy watching movies in the theatre room and the playing in the rec room. There is lots of outdoor space around the property for sledding and playing in the snow. Bob the owner is so nice to deal with, extremely helpful. We will for sure be coming back to this home.

Reviews

This gorgeous mountain retreat is in a great location and super comfortable.

VRBO Bear stayed here

May 6, 2017

This luxurious home provides a gorgeous mountain retreat for family and friends to get together in the beautiful town of Breckenridge, Colorado. The views of Breckenridge Ski Resort are breathtaking and we found the perfect spot on the deck for family photos with the spectacular mountain as a backdrop. The house backs up to the national forest so the bears had a wonderful hike up the mountain. The painstaking care shows in the details of this beautifully decorated home. Each room is tastefully decorated and has all of the necessary things needed for a wonderful relaxing stay. There is a large deck, a well-equipped kitchen, a loft filled with doll houses and toys (keeping the bear cubs busy), a theater room and a game room (a big hit) with a poker table, pool table, foosball and air hockey. Everyone was entertained! The location is within close proximity to gondolas and the town, whether you are planning for a week of hibernation or to shred some slopes with the clan. This home provides the perfect launching point and home base for your Breckenridge adventure, whether it is skiing, hiking, mountain-biking, etc. The owner was kind and responsive; this bear family paws-itively adored their trip, and would certainly stay here again!

Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Reviewer Comments:

We had 4 generations together for a family reunion. The house was perfect for this purpose. The main gathering area was large enough for us all to gather. Additionally there were lots of separate sleeping spaces and a large recreation room in the basement. There was also a hot tub, a movie theater room and a big yard. It was the perfect house for our family gathering. I would rent this home again.

Crushes Expectations

  • 5 of 5

I would give it 6 stars if I could. This getaway was perfect for our family and close friends to celebrate a birthday. We just missed the window for the free shuttle to town and gondola operations in between seasons, but it didn't matter, since we ended up spending most of our time at the house visiting with each other in this beautiful mansion. The pictures on the site are nice yet still do not do it justice for the views of the mountains/ski resort, and open layout of the home. Somehow I missed in the description that there is also a huge theater room with stadium seating, which was perfect for some football game watching, and late night movie sessions. The majority of our group loved to spend time together in the downstairs game/social room.

I highly recommend the Big Sky Ranch, and any other properties with Bob Collins, as he was extremely responsive and accommodating to our plans. Thanks again, Bob.

Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a team of 11 high level execs staying in this home for a corporate off-site last week. We couldn't have been happier with the accommodations and location! Just about everyone in the group had their own private bedroom/bathroom. The living area on the main floor was very cozy and comfortable. The patio was the best part for us. The weather was great so we spent many hours outside having meetings instead of being indoors. At night, our group made s'mores around the outdoor fire pit. Just a 2 minute hike up the hill is a great hiking trail, so several us had a great time stretching our legs on a beautiful afternoon hike.

Bob was such a pleasure to work with and our group is looking forward to having more corporate retreats here in the near future. Thank you Bob!!

Reviewer Comments:

This is a lovely home. Enough space for our party of 13 to have private time and enjoy group dinners at the grand dining table or on the spacious deck, a favorite gathering place! Spectacular view of slopes and downtown Breckenridge. Impressive and well appointed kitchen. A few disappointments: beds, pillows and linens are in desperate need of upgrading - #1 grumble of the group. Not enough full propane tanks to operate both the grill and the fire pit. The "white glove" crew missed a few things both interior and exterior; trash on grounds as well as behind some furniture in the house. Furniture in great room had to be moved so lamps on tables could be plugged in. Hot tub needs a step to get in, us older folks didn't (couldn't) use it. Directions for getting big screen in media room operational need to be rewritten (there is no HDMI3!) and there are too many remotes that serve no purpose. There should be no reason not to give this property a 5-star rating all around. Hopefully the owner will make some minor adjustments.

Amazing House, Amazing Owner

  • 5 of 5

Brought my family of 10 up to Breck for a last minute Labor Day vacation. Bob was a very flexible, and responsive owner. Our kids absolutely loved the playground and teepee. The 10 acres provided endless exploring for them too. The views from the patio and fire pit were breath taking. We stayed outside as long as possible then we all went downstairs to play games and relax in the hot tub. Every single thing in this house was fully operational and easy to use. I could go on and on about how amazing this house is, but you have many more 5 star reviews to read. We are already talking about our next visit here. Book your trip now!!
