Great cabin, private, cozy fireplace and hot tub. Everything you need is there. We had a very relaxing time with our two dogs and convenient to world class skiing too!

Peaceful weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for a girls get away weekend. Great cozy cabin feel but with lots of space. Loved the indoor hot tub! We would definitely want to stay here again.

Nice property. Some issues.

  • 2 of 5

The house was beautiful and different which was nice. Once we arrived to the house we noticed a VERY steep curved driveway that had not been plowed. We tried to make a run at it a couple times and made it 1/4 of the way up with a ram 1500 truck with 4x4. We finally had to walk all the way up to the house and found a shovel. It took us 2 hours to shovel 2 tracks all the way up to the house just to get 1 truck all the way up. Others had to walk up with very heavy coolers and bags slipping and falling all over the place. When trying to leave, the truck slid out of control into the bank and that took us 1.5 hours to dig it out since the drive wasn't accessible. Not what we wanted to do when we expected a nice relaxing vacation. Another concern was that this property stayed there was cable tv/satellite tv. We were looking forward to watching playoff football here but there was no television services. When I asked the owner about this he said there is internet tv which is not the same as cable/satellite tv. The property was not as advertised. Would not stay here again.

Great, rustic mountains experience for a group of friends or family.

  • 4 of 5

The space is set up perfectly for enjoying quality time with a group. A well equipped kitchen with huge island opens up to the hot tub, deck, and dining area. Plenty of sleeping space. Most beautiful setting imaginable. We'll definitely be back!

Comfortable but needs upgrades

  • 3 of 5


All in all a nice house, comfortable, fairly spacious, warm.

Great mountain views.

Indoor hot tub was great.

Piano is a nice touch.

Large bathroom upstairs.

Comfortable beds.

Dog friendly. Huge plus.


Some basic cleanliness/tidiness problems. Multiple used food containers in frig (alot of half-empty used peanut butter jars, half empty ketchup bottle and salsa jars, etc.) Our stay was for 5 nights, the frig should have been cleaned out.

There were half-used bars of soap in the showers. The showers also contained mostly empty used shampoo bottles. Either have new (unwrapped) soap bars and unopened mini shampoo bottles available, or clean out the showers completely. (Who would use a stranger's used soap bar?)

There was trash already in trashcan upon our arrival.

Kitchen sponges and scrub pads were used and dirty upon our arrival. Better to not have any at all. We went to the store and bought our own kitchen sponge and scrub pads.

Some drawers and the kitchen under sink were not clean. The cupboard under the kitchen island was dirty and a mess with multiple half empty food containers and jars (half empty PB, jelly, half empty pasta boxes, etc).

The coffee maker was not cleaned well, there was liquid coffee on bottom of the pot (between the pot and base) upon our arrival.

Downstairs bathroom waste basket very dirty, had hair stuck to bottom.

The downstairs shower was dirty, serious soap scum on the water handle, it had not been cleaned prior to our arrival. (Also had the half used soap bar and mostly empty shampoo bottles.) We bought shower cleaner and just cleaned it ourselves.

No internet.

TV is obsolete, has no HDMI port so you can't watch movies from Netflix or iTunes using your laptop or iPad. Very outdated.

At night the living room is poorly lit. Low wattage bulbs.

All in all, too many minor things that minimal expense and effort would easily fix. Needs basic upgrades and a better commitment to cleanliness.

River Ridge

Great place fo)r our 25th anniversary

  • 4 of 5

We chose this house for its location & amenities (ok, the hot tub was a selling point!) and were happy with our choice. Location was perfect - about 20 minutes from downtown Breck; the views were spectacular and although the pics posted are really good, they still don't do this place justice! The starry skies at night were breathtaking. We hope to come back to visit during a summer season to get a different perspective on the layout and natural beauty of this property. We had a great visit!
