This exquisite mountain log home has breathtaking views of the Breckenridge Blue River Valley, local golf course and the Ten Mile Mountain range.

Conveniently located within an eight minute drive into downtown Breckenridge, the house is located on a mountainside forested site which overlooks the scenic seventh hole on the Elk Golf Course of the Breckenridge Public golf center. It is a three minute drive to the golf course club and a seven minute drive to the down-hill ski gondola parking lot. Biking, walking trails & Nordic cross country skiing are accessible from the house.

The home is located in The Highlands, a part of Highland Park which is an exclusive enclave of distinctive mountain homes. It has direct access to a mountain biking/walking trail that traverses the property and is within convenient walking distance to the Gold Run hiking trail system.

About Craig & Lisa Robelen

Lisa and Craig live in Colorado and Florida. We both have Master Degree's and are very sports and outdoors oriented. Our Breckenridge home was designed as a very comfortable home that accentuates the out of doors, yet warm and cozy inside. Family is a priority for us, so the lay out of our home flows with open spaces for conversation and interaction, yet privacy when we need it. Our two girls and their husbands live in Lakewood and Colorado Springs, so they visit our home quite often.

Craig & Lisa Robelen purchased this house in 2013

Why Craig & Lisa Robelen chose The Highlands

We selected this property to build on because of its beautiful views, privacy, proximity to the golf course and Nordic cross country trails and convenience to down town. It really has all the characteristics we love. With Craig being a home builder, he designed the layout and made sure the views from inside of the mountains were emphasized. It is also on a cal-de-sac road, very quite with little traffic.

What makes this house unique

Being close to town yet in a very private location was a terrific find. The hiking and cross country skiing are exceptional. We have taken all of our guests on hikes from the house to the Jessy Mill abandoned gold mine and the Peabody Placer gold mine. Both are in walking distance just up the hill from the house.

Skiing is some of the best in the world. The Breckenridge Emerald Chair lift is the highest in North America. The newly opened peak six chair lift tops out at 12,500 feet. From both of these chairs extensive intermediate and expert skiing is accessible and for the truly adventurist, short hikes up to the top of the bowls, where you can find expert skiing in terrific conditions. The elevation insures that the snow quality is generally the best to be found anywhere. Ski schools on the mountain provide lessons for all ages and day care for little-ones. Summer months offer wild flower's everywhere, hikes,golf, shopping. Our home is close to everything you will need.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Craig and Lisa,

I just wanted to thank you for sharing your beautiful home. Our trip was much more than a ski trip and your home was much more than just a VRBO find to stay in. Three years ago my husband, the father of our four children passed away due to cancer. The days, months, years have been difficult without him. The holidays are in particular difficult so we have been taking a trip to try to make new memories with new traditions. We had a vacation log home for years and the kids have fond childhood memories growing up spending time there. When we walked into your home the magnificent beauty truly made us awe struck. But more importably we could feel the love of family that permeated in your home. We had such a sense of home that made the trip even more special. We cooked every meal together and shared wonderful stories, laughs and time together in front of the fire. Thank you for opening your home. It was no coincidence of the many many places I searched that yours was the one I choose. Happy New Year to your family! God Bless

Beautiful property and outstanding service from the property owner

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolutely beautiful property that was spacious enough for our group of 10 for the entire week. Craig & Lisa were very accommodating and extremely responsive throughout our stay. The house has everything you need for a short or extended stay - you'll truly feel at home during your time here. The views were exceptional and the location was a perfect balance of close to town, yet away from the rush and crowds. I would highly recommend this a beautiful home to spend a lot of time in, and also a place surrounded by endless possibilities of outside adventure. Thank you Craig & Lisa for sharing your home with us!

A beautiful mountain home!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a lovely Mothers Day weekend at this incredible Breckenridge home. The home was so warm and inviting, clean and well appointed. The views were spectacular! It was such a beautiful weather weekend that we were able to sit on the lovely deck and use the large gas grilll. The check in and check out instructions were quite helpful. Would not hesitate to stay at this home again! The owners are lovely and so easy to deal with.
