About the Property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8 in beds)

My father built this spacious custom home 40 years ago (when spiral staircases and shag carpet were all the rage!) with the intention of it being the heart of many extended family vacations.....and it has been! This completely furnished and well-equipped cabin will sleep 8 comfortably in beds. There is also a deluxe queen-sized air bed. Built as a self-contained retreat for families, the large rec room in the basement boasts a pool table, ping pong table card table and darts available. We still have the shag carpet, but new furniture, appliances and other important ammenities.

Our home is the best of both worlds: being close enough to town (2 miles) to enjoy all the shopping and culinary options, while still being far enough away to enjoy the luxury of a huge backyard and the view of nature and wildlife! We are on a well maintained and traveled road which is less than a mile from convenient parking and a free ski shuttle bus.

Set on the side of the mountain, the large deck looks out on our forested acreage complete with a beaver dam and views of Peak 7. In the summer the yard boasts abundant wildflowers and a great view of the beavers working in our pond! Last winter a family of Moose were spotted right outside the back door.

New linens, goose down comforters and pillows on all beds make for a restful night's sleep before a busy day exploring beautiful downtown Breckenridge or skiing the summit! (The master bedroom has a queen size Select Comfort mattress.) Just minutes from world-class gondolas, the mountain awaits your arrival!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1975

About the owner: I am a college professor, my husband designs amusement park rides. This cabin was built by my father and remains my very favorite place in the world! We have no children, but show Belgian Sheepdogs and Havanese. We love to travel but Breckenridge is our favorite place to be. It is a magical place where we both feel very much at home!

Why the Owner Chose Breckenridge, CO, USA:
We used to live in Western Kansas and we found ourselves vacationing in the Rocky Mountains every chance we got. We kept coming back to Breckenridge and decided to try to find a lot and build a home. As luck would have it some very good friends of ours had just built a home and told us the lot next door was for sale. We bought it and began building. Literally.....WE....began building. My dad was a builder....a really GOOD one.... and our family built this home with our own hands. It's not the fanciest home on the mountain, but I bet it is the best built!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We have quite a bit of land behind our home as the lot is pie shaped with the small point facing the road. In the summer you can hike around the yard and visit the beaver pond....one of my favorite things to do. Or, you can just sit on the deck and wait patiently to see moose, bear, deer, fox, or the illusive beavers.
