About Ted Dreier

Breckenridge has been our home since 1986, when I left the corporate life of Dallas, as a public speaker.

It was in 1994 that, after living in a condo for 8 year, my wife and I built duplex three blocks off of main street. I was the general contractor and hired a lot of Mennonite craftsman from Kansas.

We now spend our winters in Franklin, TN -- outside of Nashville -- with the three young grandsons and family. So, while we are gone in the winter we rent out home out to you skiers

We have been married for 51 years--November 22, 2011-- have two sons. One in Franklin TN with wife and three kids and other in Coppell, TX with wife and two older grandkids. My wife is a painter, organist pianist, quilter

We spent three years in central Africa-- Malaw.

In 1987-- after moving to Breckenridge in 1986, I wrote a book -- Take Your LIfe Off Hold -- which was about people leaving the corporate rat race and going for their dreams. Had over 300 radio/TV/newspaper interviews on the book.

Now my days are spent working with Moozie the cow who is the ambassador of kindness for the Children's Kindness Network, (CKN) a nonprofit organization that we started back in 1998 -after discovering that a robotic talking cow I built-- as a garage project--was loved by children and they listened when Moozie talked about kindness. CKN's mission is to stop bullying before it begins by teaching kindness values to young pre-K children. You can learn about Moozie and the Children's Kindness Network by going to www.childrenskindnessnetwork.org

And to our renters, we say thanks for renting our place for your rental income has a financial impact on CKN

And if you would like to know more about CKN and Moozie, And if you have heard about Moozie in your community, for fun-- drop me a line

Ted Dreier purchased this house in 1994

Why Ted Dreier chose Breckenridge

We have this rental here because our residence is in Breckenridge and we leave during the winter to be with young grandchildren in Franklin, TN. All grandparents can understand that. We love the beauty of Breckenridge and that it is a real town with real people. We have lived in Breckenridge since 1986 and in our home since 1994.

What makes this house unique

You will be staying in our home therefore it has upgrades on all amenities since it is not simply a rental. The most common comment we get from renters is that they can't believe that we rent our a home this nice. And we have been very fortunate for the people renting it appreciate the fact that it is special and they have taken care of it-- so it is a win/win.

Additionally, there is a large common area right in front of the picture window. This allows the kids to play in the snow outside as parents and grandparents sit in front of the fire inside the house watching them. There are small slopes which kids can slide down with plastic sleds.

And then there is the fact we are right in town so it is easy to go out to shop, eat and the gondola is only a six minute walk.

And for what is it worth -- you are staying in Moozie's home -- some kids love that fact.

And we work with a ski rental place on the way to the gondola which gives out guests special discounts-- and has given great service-- per feedback from renters.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for the use of your beautiful home with ic s step back in time! The Victorian theme as a relaxing environment, especially for those of us from TX where is rarely seen in the TX panhandle. Time off is a rarity for our family and we treasure our time together which could not have been nicer due to your hospitality. Our heart felt thanks to you both!.

House was in great condition, easy walk downtown and accommodated 10 guests with room to spare. Would stay again if I made another trip out to Breckenridge.

Our entire family rates it a 10 in all phases.

  • 5 of 5

It offered everything we were looking for including the location to bus and main street. We all would return and also recommend to any and all looking for something that sleeps at least 12.

Great House Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Can't beat a two block walk to Main St and a block or two more to the Gondola! We stayed with a group of 5, and this house was perfect. The bedrooms are on multiple levels affording extra privacy, and baths for each. The owner was very helpful and made himself available for help (which we didn't need - but it can be useful to those new to Breck or Summit County). We will definitely consider this house again for a larger group.

Owner's Response: In contacting the renter, who was very nice, why he only gave us 4 stars instead of 5, it was because the lower level was cool for one of the guests. Having checked into for the lower level is heated by a hot water system which is being checked into to see is someone changed the thermostat setting. Also, the renter was not aware that they could have opened up furnace vents coming in from another system which would have taken care of problem. The renter apologized for not letting me know so I could have corrected it immediately.

Great home near main street

  • 5 of 5

The home was well prepared for our stay. Easily accessible and walking distance to main street and the gondola to take us up the mountain. The owner even called to make sure we didn't need anything. Will definitely stay here again if we bring another large group.

Perfect Ski Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for a our family (consisted of 8 pairs and 3 kids). We were all very warm and cozy and the house was very comfortable for visiting after exhausting ski-days. There were 3 bedrooms, and two additional open areas (1 with a day bed and 1 with 2 couches) that worked for sleeping. (Main level = living/dining/kitchen; 2nd level = Bedroom with attached bathroom that is also accessible from the hall; 3rd level = Master with bathroom and soaker tub; below level = bedroom, bathroom and couch sleeping area). The first ski-day we walked to the ski rental below the gondola and shuttled to base 9 where we had lessons set up. With 3 children, 2 of which are 1, and with all the equipment we decided this was a bit much for us even though it really was not a far walk. The second day we parked and it was perfect. There seemed to be some nice restaurants around but we chose to eat at the house the entire visit except for lunch on the mountain. We would definitely consider staying again.

Nearest Airport
75 Miles
Denver airport
Car: not necessary

Our house has a large common area where children can safely play, slide down inclines in plastic sleds-- and parents/grandparents can sit in the warmth of our house and look out the windows as the children play.

If you go to concerts or plays, it is an easy walk therefore,you don't have to search for a place to part,
