Overview

About the property

3 Bdrm 3 Bath Downtown, Full Custom Renovation 2013-2014, Beautiful Gardens

Bright, beautiful, spacious and extremely comfortable, luxury upstairs condo in one of Breckenridge's landmark properties in the core of downtown Breckenridge. The property was originally built in 1890 as home for a successful gold miner's Family. The most recent, previous owner's operated their store, the Bay Street Company out of the location and lived upstairs. It was purchased in December of 2012 and a year long, massive top to bottom renovation of nearly everything from subfloor to roofline was undertaken in March of 2013. This is the first time the property has ever been listed for rent. All finishes are custom to the extent that they are not only made for the building but even the wood was specifically sourced from around the country, much of it reclaimed.

The bathrooms, and specifically the center master bath will rival or surpass nearly any in the county. All of the bath floors are heated. There is an extra large infinity bath tub, specifically the Kohler SOK, and a steam shower, another wonderful soaking bath, and incredible tile and stone throughout. All of the beds are brand new, which include plush pillow top kings in each bedroom, as well as 3 twins in the historic wing and one fold out twin ottoman in the Central master. It is a wonderful place to stay and enjoy everything that Breckenridge has to offer. Blue sage spa is within 30 yards of the property, the bus stop to access the entire county is across the street. There are 2 private, partially covered parking spaces.

The property itself is one of the most photographed properties in Summit county with impressive perennial gardens and plantings. It won the town Christmas lighting competition the last year they held it, and it has been on the cover of Sunset magazine more than once as well as featured in the magazine on more than one occasion.

There are countless restaurants and shops within just a few blocks. The ski lifts are an easy walk and the new Free town trolley runs directly in front of The Loft, taking you to the gondola, the Ice rink and City market.

It is the best place to enjoy all that breckenridge has to offer!

About Robert Helt

We are local business owners who operate the shop in the same building, downstairs. We have been in love with the property since moving to Breckenridge in 1998. Purchasing it was a dream come true and making the residence a rental is an opportunity for us to share this incredible property as well as the town we love with the rest of the world.

Robert Helt purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Robert Helt chose Breckenridge

If you come you will know why we chose this property, but if you need convincing, it is one of the only properties in Breckenridge that survived a fire in the late 1800s. While it is not entirely original, a large addition was done in the 80s, it was very tastefully done without destroying the character of the historic portion, as vouched for by our historic landmark status. We have some of the most unique perennial gardens in Breckenridge with the warmth of downtown sheltering some very unique plants that grow no where else, that we know of, in summit county.

The Loft is 3 blocks from the ski lift where my children learned to ski. While the lift does access one of the best beginner areas in the west, it also drops you in an area where you can easily take the cross mountain express to very advanced terrain.

The Loft is very special. It has a very unique history, dating back to the gold rush and the people who have owned it through the years have done great things for the the town and history of Breckenridge!

Great for 2 full families

  • 5 of 5

The property was great. Highly recommend this for a trip to Breck.

The layout could use a bit of explanation.

Large island kitchen

Big 10-seat dining room table

Big living room with couch and love seats.

3 bedrooms each with king beds.

The first bedroom you come to off the landing is the smallest and most private. Nice full bath with large shower & tub.

The true master Is the the middle bedroom. It's a larger bedroom with the master bathroom.

Both of these could be "parent" bedrooms.

The 3rd bedroom has the king bed and a twin with a twin trundle. It also a has a smaller room off of this bedroom. There is another twin in there as well. There's also a nice-sized tv with a Nintendo. There is a bathroom for these beds.

This last bedroom is perfect for the kids. We had teen-aged girls share the king. We pulled the trundle mattress into the smaller room and two boys shared. Gave each group some measure of privacy.

The entrance is a door behind the Ruby Jane off the alley- under the covered parking. Plenty of room for skis helmets and poles. There's even some boot warmers. You walk up the stairs to enter the loft.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the property with my sister's family total of 4 adults and 3 kids for a week. Place was perfect. The third bedroom and more than enough room for the three kids. The living area is super large and always nice to have a sizable eating area where even my parents joined for a meal or two. Location is as central as it gets. You can walk to Peak 9 and fall out the door on to Main street. Will rent again.

Great property right in the heart of town.

  • 5 of 5

There is essentially a children's wing that works very well as long as the kids can share a room. Our girls loved it and felt like they had their own little hideaway. Very convenient to the village.

Top Notch

  • 5 of 5

This place was great for 5 guys. Close to town, and close enough to the slopes. Accommodations were top notch and perfect for those who like to cook and relax a bit.

Top-Notch Landlord and a Gorgeous Property with a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The Loft was the perfect property for my family. My husband and I arrived to Breckenridge with our two children 6 and 11 and my parents. The three bedrooms are beautifully furnished and the bed linens were heavenly after a day on the slopes. The bedroom the children stayed in accommodated my two perfectly with room for three more. All of the bathrooms are beautifully tiled with high end fixtures and cabinets filled with plush white towel sets. The master shower and bath tub were a huge hit with my children. We love to cook and that we did. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything we needed all the way down to a terrific fondue set and serving platters.

Location, Location, Location .....The Loft is centered right in the middle of Main Street which gave us such freedom to walk to all shopping and restaurants once we were back from skiing. So many choices and different cuisines to choose from all within two-three blocks. One concern I did have before arriving is that it might be noisy since we were staying right in the middle of town. This was not the case at all - our stay was very quiet and The Loft is very private which was perfect.

If you are a Starbucks lover there is one right across the street, which worked out perfectly for our family. The grocery store as well as wine and liquor store is just behind the house one block with a heated sidewalk for your walking pleasure. We became good friends with Parker the bar manager at "Ember" just behind the house - amazing wine, cocktails and delicious food. Don't forget to stop in for an amazing Crepe just across the street to the left, it is a must.

We are already talking about our return trip to The Loft in the Spring. Thank you again Robert for all of our help and quick responses to texts. You trully made our stay terrific you are a wonderful host.

Amazing Loft Experience!

  • 5 of 5

The Loft at Ruby Jane was an phenomenal experience for our family. The location was perfect for those shopping on Main Street and skiers could make a short walk to the lifts. The Loft is beautifully furnished and extremely well maintained. The master bathroom, in particular, is exceptional. Five-star experience, for sure! The owner provided great service throughout the entire process. Highly recommend this property for those interested in a very memorable Breckenridge vacation!
