About The Owner

We are a family of 4 based in Australia. We first visited and fell in love with Breckenridge in 1998 whilst living in the US. After we moved back to Australia we came back here for our honeymoon and have been coming back ever since. As soon as our children were old enough to make the journey, we introduced them to the wonderfulness that is Breckenridge and now they are as captured by its charms as we were. In buying this beautiful home we hope they in turn will bring their children here in the future.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2012

Why The Owner chose Breckenridge

Having rented this wonderfully comfortable mountain home on two previous occasions, when we found out it was for sale during our stay in 2012, we knew it was for us and feel very lucky to have been able to purchase it. The house is a perfect size for several families or extended family groups and provides a real on mountain experience, surrounded by lodgepole pines, wildlife and a view of the slopes. The location is wonderful for families with children with easy green run ski-in ski-out access and the base of Peak 8, the Super Chairs and the Breckenridge Ski School within minutes of the house.

What makes this cabin unique

In addition to its wonderful location, our cabin has beautifully comfortable beds and furnishings. The fully equipped kitchen has everything you will need and dining and living areas are inviting and comfortable for relaxing family evenings together. Sitting in the private hot tub after a great family day on the slopes and looking out onto the surrounding pine and the snowman that we just made with the children ... pure happiness!

Perfect cabin for a family vacation for all ages. Cabin has everything you need to make memories.

  • 5 of 5

Our Family loves the cabin so much we came back for a second visit. The Owners have not forgotten a thing. They provide a house that’s ready to entertain just like the comfort of your own home. The normal routine for us is rise early, have breakfast, hit the slopes by 8:30 just as the lift opens. This includes skiing down the street ski in,ski out. Return home at 4:30 to the hot tub. Dinner, s’mores by the outside fire pit and a friendly game of pool. Can’t wait for our next visit. Thank you again for sharing your lovely home.

Best Family Vacation in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about The Cabin. Everything about The Cabin was well thought out, organized and clean. The property manager was in contact and does a great job of managing the property. Our family of 8 had plenty of room yet still felt cozy in the living areas of The Cabin where we played Wii, board games, billiards and cards in the evenings (all provided in The Cabin). Location was perfect for ski in-out at Peak 8. This was our first trip to Breckenridge and found easy access to Main Street. There are so many activities in the area. Sledding down the hard packed snow on the street was a favorite for the kids...

We had a great time at the cabin. It really provided the setting to make for a perfect vacation. This past week at The Cabin has created life long memories for our family. We hope to return someday soon.

Very Thoughtful Owners!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the cabin at the end of July with 9 people: 7 adults and two small children. We had plenty of room for each couple to spread out and have their own quiet space, but it still felt cozy and homey. Both the communications with Angela the owner and Nancy the property manager were clear, fast and friendly. Angela has thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and informative. We had no problems at all and loved the little touches that made us feel welcome and at home, from the s'mores kit and Australian wine to the easily accessible power strips for our devices and humidifiers in each room for our dry noses! We stayed in the beautiful summertime, but we'd love to come back in the winter to ski. Great location on Peak 8, especially if you have elementary/middle school age kids to enjoy the adventure park in walking distance. Easy access to town by gondola, bus or car. The walk is only 2 miles, so very doable too (at least downhill!) Thanks for sharing your wonderful home - we will be back!

Great Breckenridge Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in The Cabin for 5 nights in July 2017 and give it a 5 star review. We have a family of five including three young children.

Before the stay, the owners sent us a detailed information package which proved to be very helpful. The package included directions, amenities, details of the area, things to do, local transportation information, and more.

The cabin itself is very clean and comfortable. What stood out the most for us was the details. The Cabin was absolutely fully stocked. For example, the kitchen had plenty of dishes, silverware, name-brand pots, pans, and appliances, knives, dishwasher soap, etc. It made cooking for a family easy. Details such as including plenty of games for the Wii, board games (with fresh batteries), a baby gate, a pack-n-play, a washer/dryer, extra towels, lighters for the fire-pit, even zipping plastic bags and chip clips...details important for a traveling family...were not overlooked. So many times in rental units one finds they need to go out and buy a number of small items. Not the case here.

The location is fantastic. For Summer visitors the Breckenridge summer fun park on Peak 8 is easy walking distance. Of course in the winter the ski area is the same short distance. At the bottom of the street is a trail that heads south to Sawmill reservoir. This is an excellent hike for young children, including a fun bridge across a roaring stream and a 200 yard stretch of small toys that someone placed along the trail.

The owners are extremely responsive should you have any questions and include a contact list (property manager, maintenance) should anything be needed.

I highly recommend this cabin for a stay during any season.
