About the property

4 Bedroom + Bunk Room Log Cabin Style Home, Sleeps 12 adults

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. The historic Jenny Mill gold mine and Peabody Placer gold mining ghost town are within easy hiking distance on well marked trails. The Gold Run Nordic center ski trail runs adjacent to the property.

The home is a classic mountain log home with enormous exposed post and beam log construction. A major tree trunk extends from the lower bedroom level through the main floor to the ceiling ridge beam setting the mountain log tone of the house. A large stone fireplace accents the living room next to cathedral windows through which Buffalo Mountain is viewed.

Upon entering, you will be welcomed by eight foot windows with incredible views and twenty four foot high beamed ceilings. The kitchen is fully equipped with a Sub Zero refrigerator, Wolf gas stove, copper farmhouse sink, wine cooler and a large gas BBQ outside for grilling. A ten foot mahogany wood dining room table seats 10, with room for 2 more seats at the adjacent granite kitchen island.

A west facing deck with an exterior fireplace provides a lovely spot to enjoy the impressive mountain views and take in the sunshine. A Jacuzzi hot tub on the first floor patio provides excellent views of the mountains and good star watching at night. To ensure complete relaxation, the house also has a steam room on the lower level.

The main living level features an open floor plan incorporating the foyer, dining room, kitchen with a large central entertainment granite island, the great room with a large stone fireplace, a powder room and a mud room/laundry with ski cubicles. Elk antler chandeliers accent the foyer and dining room. The living room continues the open plan with an attached entertainment deck with views of the Ten Mile mountain range, an outdoor BBQ grill and an outdoor stone fireplace.

Three bedrooms, a bunk room with four log beds and three baths each with different mountain themes are located on this second level. A family room with views of the valley and large screen TV is located on the west side of the house. Off the family room is an outdoor patio with a five person hot tub with views of the mountain.

The four bed bunk room is located off the family room with log style bunk beds and a log ladder. A spa bath is located next to the bunk room with a large steam room with shower and private toilet room.

Truly unique is the Man Cave,located above the garage with a pull out couch for extra guest sleeping, exercise equipment and free weights and a desk for study. This is a great place to escape to.

About Craig & Lisa Robelen

Lisa and Craig live in Colorado and Florida. Craig grew up in Ct and Lisa in Fl. We both have Master Degree's & are very sports oriented and active outside. 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 North Breckenridge

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 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

average rating of 4.9375 based on 18 reviews

Beautiful custom built home with views of the mountains to match.

  • 5 of 5

The owners spared no expense in creating a beautiful mountain home. Open floor plan with smart home features. Everything you could ask for and more for a vacation getaway. Perfect location in a quiet neighborhood with mountain views everywhere. I would recommend to anyone looking for a place to comfortably sleep 10 people. You can get to Breckenridge or Keystone resorts within 10-20 min. Owners are very responsive and willing to help you enjoy your vacation anyway possible.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, beautiful views, and great for a large family. We met up with our grown children there for a winter vacation of skiing and snowmobiling, and we had a great time. The kitchen and fireplace area is large and roomy when everyone wants to visit, but there is ample room for individual privacy. We only have good things to say about our stay there.

Amazing, Exceeded Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Christmas 2016 was magical for our family! We spent 5 nights at this exquisite mountain home and it really exceed our expectations. The house was amazing and the location was just perfect! The owners were very helpful when we contacted them with questions prior of our arrival. The house is big and our family of 12 never felt "on the top of each other". We strongly recommend this property, it's was not only beautiful, clean, and big, but also very conveniently located. Amazing views for pictures, just a step out of the property!

Beautiful Home, breathtaking Views

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this truly beautiful home. The house was better than expected, with high-end amentities, stylish and comfortable furnishings, and well appointed bathrooms. It was perfect for our group of 8 adults. The home is located on a golf course, but it's secluded and has amazing views of the mountains. Most evenings, instead of dining out, we cooked, ate out on the deck with the warmth of a fire and watched the sunset over the mountains. The entertainment system was great and we could listen to music throughout the living area. The home is located in the premier Highlands community, but It's a quick trip to Main Street less than 10 minutes. Breckenridge's Main Street is quaint with plenty of shops, boutiques, and restaurants. The house is also accessible to hiking trails that we enjoyed early in the morning or late afternoons. We love Breckenridge in the winter, but Breck's summer beauty is breathtaking and this home did not disappoint. The owners were very responsive and easy to work with.

Alpine Wonderland

  • 5 of 5

My family decided a reunion in the mountains of Colorado was long overdue. Our goal was to enjoy the cool summer during the week of July 4th. Finding available homes that had 5 bedrooms was a challenge. We found this property and locked it up as soon as possible. The pictures don't lie. It is a spectacular home. The owners spared no expense. The attention to detail in the kitchen and bathrooms is especially noticeable. The layout of the home encouraged engagement by our entire family. The deck has a great view of the mountains and the Breckenridge Golf Club. The street that the house is on is sparsely populated and very close to one of the better hiking trails. We had no complaints with the residence and found the owners to be very quick with every response. You will not find a better house in Breckenridge!

Gorgeous Home for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The home is just spectacular. The location is fantastic and it is incredible to sit on the deck and enjoy the views all around. You may not want to leave the house during your stay!! Fortunately, the house is so close to the golf course that we got several rounds in during our stay. Our family had a fantastic time in Breckenridge. Thanks for sharing your home with us!

The house is located within a ten minute walk of the Gold Run historic mining area. Several abandoned gold mines are within an easy hike and a full mining ghost town is located up the trail. You can walk to the golf club to play 27 holes of sensational golf or Nordic Cross Country ski in the winter. Opportunities for fly fishing and mountain hiking abound. A child's recreation center is just 9 miles away just before you get to Frisco. There are hot springs within a half-hours drive. Horseback ridging stables are close by as well.
