About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Irie House (Irie means 'the state of well being' in Jamaican) is ideally situated on upper 4 O'clock Road just across from 4 O'clock Run (4 O'clock meaning the time the tows close...better begin skiing down!). Ideally situated means that (1) it's close to all the mountain sports - winter and summer, ie, ski-in/out, bike-in/out and/or hike-in/out; and (2) is only a short walk to town.

While the frontage of Irie House is a rustic mountain cabin, which is attractive in itself, it hides a 4200 square feet, comfortable/cozy 5 bedroom home which can sleep 10 in two living areas. After entering the spacious living area, guests usually walk straight out to the huge deck for a panoramic view of the town and Baldy Mountain. Then they find the kitchen/dining area and the master bedroom both facing out on the deck. Upon further exploring, one finds the second living area downstairs with kitchen, bath, 2 bedrooms, fireplace, TV and a pool table - perfect for the kids while the parents are upstairs relaxing. Off the second floor balcony are two more bedrooms and a loft, plus a place to work for those who can't get away (the house has total wireless).

Previous renters will be pleasantly surprised in that the living room and downstairs furniture have been totally updated, windows overlooking the deck and town have been replaced and the upstairs bathroom has been redone. Since the hot tub had become pretty tired, it too has been replaced with a modern four jet-pack Billfrog Spa along with deck reinforcements to hold it.

Thus, after those long, 'hard' days of skiing, biking, hiking and/or just shopping, one can come home to a place like home. But, the best spot is the new Bullfrog Spa on the deck overlooking the town and the mountains - fantastic when it's snowing and especially at night when the moon is up. Then everyone realizes that they are truly in 'a state of well being'!

Keywords: Rustic mountain home on upper Four O'clock Road across from 4 O'clock Run, above Snow Flake Lift., No. 905 is first single family house on left coming out of large switchback on upper 4 O'clock Road.

About Robert Merrill

After a career in international development, having lived in some six countries and worked in several more, our family has grown up around the world. In Breckenridge, we now have a second home enjoying all the scenery and outdoor activities in the Colorado mountains. You will too!

Robert Merrill purchased this house in 1991

Why Robert Merrill chose Breckenridge

Having had a condo on lower Four O'clock Rd. for several years, once the house came on the market, we felt it was a perfect place to retire. Little did we know we could/would also share the attractions of our Colorado home with others.

What makes this house unique

Every guest will name them...great skiing, biking, hiking, exploring, reading on the deck, enjoying the hot tub day and night, ie, just feeling at home w/o the worries of home.

Great Spot in Breck!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house for a family vacation. The house is spacious and well maintained with lots of room to move around without tripping over the rest of your party. Everything is clean and well maintained! It's easier to walk to the lift (around the corner or down the backyard) than ski-in, but there's a ski-out spot just steps from the front door.

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 10 had a wonderful stay. Everyone got a real bed and the skiing was great - 36" of snow while we were there! Irie House is spacious, comfortable and well equipped. It truly is ski-in, ski-out. The views are great from every window and particularly from the large deck. We really enjoyed the 2 living areas, big comfy sofa's and the private hot tub. Highly recommended!

Great Christmas Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Three generations of our family shared the Irie House this past Christmas and it was a wonderful time for all. The house was remarkably well equipped and the the views were amazing. One group or another especially enjoyed the ski-in/ski-out, the walks to town, the Children's Museum, the Recreation Center, the hot tub and the generous and relaxing living spaces.

Perfect Family Skiing

  • 5 of 5

Robert, We're back from a great week of skiing. Your house is really exceptional and added to our enjoyment of the week. Of course, the easy access to the slopes and glorious views of the mountains made for a great week. Eleven inches of fresh powder didn't hurt either. We are already making plans for next year and trying to agree on a time that's good for all. We hope your house will be available when we can make it. I'll be back in touch as soon as we can get our act together. Jerry and Carol
