The Williams House is truly The House in Town.
Building a frame house in Breckenridge before the arrival of the railroad was no small task. To erect this c.1881 house and the one next door (301 N. Main),Breckenridge saloonkeeper Joseph F. Reeder had to chop down trees, drag them to the sawmill, have them milled for different uses—siding, flooring, shingles, etc.—and let them dry. Inflating the cost of construction was the need to pack finished building materials—nails, paint, and doors— over a high mountain pass at a cost of forty cents per pound.
In 1888, John Williams, a hardrock miner, and his wife, Minta, purchased the house as their home. After John and Minta’s separation in 1890, Minta and their daughter, Ethel, continued to live here until 1906, renting it out from time to time as they pursued an acting career for

Great location - plenty of space - charming old house
We had 12 people in for a ski weekend and absolutely loved our stay at the Williams House ... we will be back!!!
Thanks Michael. Good to hear you had a wonderful time up there.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Williams house! The layout, number of bedrooms and baths, modern and fully stocked kitchen, and 2 living rooms let our group of 7 have plenty of space. The location is wonderful for both skiers and non-skiers. The historical aspect of the house was a deciding factor in our stay and did not disappoint.
The owners and Amanda from the property manager were great to work with, very accommodating, and very easy to contact. We will keep this property in mind for future trips!
Thanks Therese for writing such a nice review!
I hope you come back soon.
Perfect location for a family vacation
Our family group of 14 - age ranges 1 1/2 to 79 stayed for a week in this wonderful home. It was well suited for a group our size and had many of the amenities that we required (highchair, baby gates, bedrooms, bathrooms, large dining area, dine-in friendly). It was an easy, short walk to the gondola for those trips up the mountain. Easy walk to downtown for dining, shopping, and site-seeing. Roomy for everyone to have a bit of their own space and accommodating for us to be together as well. Two living areas, ample TVs, Wi-Fi - wonderful for the variety entertainment or quiet needed for a family vacation. Only caution, remember your flip-flops for traversing the splinter-friendly deck getting to and from the hot-tub. We would love to stay there again - winter or summer - as the location and amenities are ideal for activities year-round.
All Around Excellent Rental!!!
From the moment we opened the doors, we were impressed. The property was clean and spacious. The kitchen was well equipped and there were plenty of towels and linens in each room. It was cold and we didn't feel that the heater was working, but luckily there were fireplaces and quite a few portable electric heaters available. The owner was quick to respond and a pleasure to work with! We had a great stay and since it was the perfect location, it accommodated all of our individual interests/activities without any of us having to drive anywhere.
Great Location and House!
The location of the Williams house was perfect - right on main street within walking distance to all the restaurants and bars. There were a lot of rooms that were all very clean. The main living area was big enough for our large group, and even has a bonus tv room that was great for watching football. I would definitely stay here again!
Our stay was just what we had hoped it would be! We had plenty of room and plenty of bathrooms. The location was awesome and the quaint charm of the house made us feel comfortable and at home.
Thanks for a great weekend!
