About Curtis Gallagher

We moved to Colorado to enjoy the outdoors, what better way than to build your own dream home high up in the Rockies.

Curtis Gallagher purchased this house in 2010

Why Curtis Gallagher chose South Breckenridge

This is a great home for entertaining large groups. The Chef inspired kitchen makes it easy to enjoy cooking for a large group. The home is close to everything in Summit County. The home is big enough for your group to all be in the same room, and spacious enough for you to get away as well.

What makes this house unique

The open floor plan with exposed wood beams, local blue stain pine from beetle killed trees, and raw steel makes this mountain getaway truly unique.

Rates are for entire 5 bedroom home, please inquire with owner if you have a smaller group.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We LOVED Curtis's home! A group of 9 of us stayed here for 2 nights and it was perfect. The pictures don't really do it justice--the decor and the size is really lovely. Everyone was really happy with their rooms. And the kitchen---WOW! We basically stayed in there the whole time. It's MASSIVE and has everything you need. I was a little hesitant booking only because no one else had reviewed it and I usually gravitate towards highly reviewed lodgings. However, I am SO glad we decided to stay here. I'd recommend it to friends and family and hopefully we can make it back in the summer. Only advice I'd give--if you go in the winter--and there is a chance for a snow storm--make sure you and your guests have nice mtn cars with 4 wheel drive. It's a bit off the beaten path but so worth it. Curtis was super helpful with the booking--he even added some pictures of the house I requested. It's about 20 minutes from Breck in snowy weather. Have fun!

Perfect for a family holiday in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

We spent our entire Thanksgiving week here and it was the perfect place for us. The description of the home is accurate but you have to see it so realize how spacious it really is. Curtis was easy to work with, quick to respond, and made it simple to get access to the rental. The best part for us was that the kitchen is huge and very well equipped. We pulled off a Thanksgiving feast for 6 and we had everything we needed. I think this is an idyllic rental for a holiday week with family in the mountains.

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this house. Plenty of awesome hikes near by (we recommend Mohawk lakes). The house had everything we needed and more. My husband loved the duel shower heads in the master bedroom, especially after those long hikes. It was so relaxing and enjoyable. The only issue I had was I was freezing! But honestly no biggie, just threw on cozy socks and a warm sweater. I would definitely stay there again and recommend to anyone.

My family and I, (8 of us in all), were here for 3 nights. Plenty of room for all of us with the 5 bedrooms and wishing we could have stayed longer. The home had everything you could ask for from the gourmet kitchen and eating area (spent most of our time there), down to the beer glasses. (What a nice collection!!!!!!!!!!). We had a great time playing pool one evening, and what a wonderful suprise to have the Sunday ticket for the NFL games!!!! Our family are football junkies and it was so cool to be able to watch multiple games. Curtis was so very efficient and timely in getting back to us if we had a question or a problem. Only problem we had was trying to figure out the oven. There is a knob for settings, but was hard to figure out what the settings were for. (broiler, baking, etc.).

Curtis mentions the altitude and i would pay particular attention to it!!!!!! You are waaaaaay up there (almost 12,000') and altitude sickness is a real thing. Drink plenty of water and get a prescription for Diamox if you can. I was not able to get the Diamox in time and we paid for it. Nasty headaches, difficult breathing and a pounding heart for the first two days. All in all, we had such a wonderful trip and we are talking about booking it for Christmas of 2017.. Thank you again Curtis!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Curtis is extremely accommodating, and wonderful to rent from. The house is immaculate, open, and beautiful inside and out.

Beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

We booked the house for our July wedding. We had an odd assortment of family and friends staying at the house, and there was definitely enough room for everyone to have their own space, while still allowing the group to gather in the same room. We simply walked around the woods up the road to find a place for the ceremony and then held our very small reception at the house. It worked out perfectly!

The kitchen is absolutely as amazing as you would expect from the pictures! We actually decided to cook our own food for the reception because we wanted to make sure that we used it as much as possible. The bed in the master was extremely comfortable. I can't speak for the rest of the beds, but there were certainly no complaints. One note I'd make is that the internet was quite slow. It didn't really bother me, but it was hard for a few of our guests.

As has been mentioned many times already, this house is very high. My now husband and I have been spending summers in Breckenridge for six years now, and we could definitely tell a difference when at the house than in town. Most of our party experienced mild symptoms, but since we made sure everyone knew how to help prepare themselves, they thankfully recovered quickly.

All in all, it was a wonderful stay, and I appreciated that Curtis was quick to answer any questions I had about the house. Thanks for a memorable weekend!
