About the property

This large 2,800 square foot, two-story mountain home backs up to the beautiful Blue River wetlands. Enjoy the open views of Pacific Peak and Crystal Peak from this family retreat. Lodge pole pines, quaking aspens, willow bushes and other native foliage surround the home and provide the ultimate backdrop while not blocking views of the Tenmile range. The wetlands attract various mountain wildlife, such as the neighborhood moose.

Inside the home, you will enjoy two open living areas, each with its own fireplace and flat screen television. The modern amenities in the kitchen, such as granite countertops and a gas stovetop, compliment the alpine wood craftsmanship. The kitchen is well-equipped with everything needed to cook for a crowd. The kitchen, which seats 10 people at the counter and table, opens to the bright and comfortable family room.

The dining room, which seats an additional 8 people, opens to the vaulted ceilings and large windows in the living room. The living room and family room can be separated by glass French doors, to allow kids to play games in the family room, while the adults enjoy a game of cards in the living room and dining room.

The four bedrooms are all on the second floor. The large master bedroom features a queen bed, flat screen TV, large walk-in closet and a beautiful en suite bathroom.

Two additional bedrooms both have queen beds and televisions. The final bedroom is perfect for kids, with two sets of bunk beds, for a total of four twin beds. There is also a second full bath, which has a separated shower and large counter and vanity.

Enjoy the fresh air and mountain views while relaxing on the deck. Build a fire and enjoy some ‘smores in the fire pit. Gaze at the millions of stars from the Arctic Spa hot tub.

We also provide wireless internet and cable television.

Whether you’re coming to Breckenridge to enjoy world class skiing and mountain adventures or simply need a place to relax and get away, this will be your perfect vacation home!

About Nancy and Greg Zuercher

Greg, a native Chicagoan, moved out to Breckenridge in 1994 after graduating from Michigan State University. Growing up skiing in the Midwest, Greg had the love for the sport, but had never experienced mountain living until he moved out to Colorado. After settling in Denver in 2004, Greg met Nancy, a Colorado native from Black Forest. Nancy graduated from University of Northern Colorado and received her Master’s Degree from University of Denver in 2008. We got married in 2008 and our first son, Charlie, was born in 2009 while Emmett followed in 2011. We reside full time in Greenwood Village, Colorado

Nancy and Greg Zuercher purchased this house in 2014

Why Nancy and Greg Zuercher chose Blue River

We have been renting homes in Breckenridge for 10 years with the last six years specifically renting in the Blue River area. We would rent homes with friends and family and as everyone’s families started to grow, the size of the homes and proximity to town drew us to Blue River. Being able to drive five minutes out of town to a more serene environment drew us to this neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

As our family grew and the young boys started to ski, we started to look at properties in Blue River. After almost a year of looking, we were ready to make an offer after our first visit to this home. Walking into the home and seeing the wood craftsmanship was certainly inviting, but after walking into the kitchen and family room and seeing the views of the wetlands and peaks on the Tenmile range, we were sold. The home is polar opposite to our modern-eclectic home in Greenwood Village. The wood mantels above both fireplaces, exposed wood support beams, railings, and trim is something that gives us the feel of a real mountain escape. Another important aspect is the floor plan, as we wanted all the bedrooms to be in the same area. With years of renting homes in the past, there was always a certain amount of discomfort when the young children were sleeping on separate floors from the parent. Also, the ability for some to stay up late and not bother the others sleeping is certainly nice rather than having bedrooms on the main living area or below the living area where it would keep people up. Lastly, the two living areas and fireplaces are important. Being able to have kids congregate in one area, with adults in another is a bonus.

Breckenridge in summer 2017

If you are looking for a place to stay, this is your home away from home!!! It is in a beautiful setting with everything you need. We couldn't have been happier with this house and all its amenities. We hope to be able to stay there again in a couple of years. Thanks for sharing your home Greg and Nancy.

Perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in various homes and hotels in Breck over the past 30 yrs - summers and winters and we enjoyed this rental more than any of them. Rented for a week with 10 people and had plenty of sleeping options for all. The house is very clean, well maintained and spacious with 2 living areas both with fireplaces, a great kitchen and super hot tub. Never felt crowded. Loved the layout. Can close off one living area from the other which helps with different age groups/tv, game or movie watching. All bedrooms upstairs. Attached garage makes it easy to load and unload all the ski equipment, etc. Nancy was attentive to all our needs and questions. Located in lovely, small area of other homes. Quiet and just a few mins drive to Breck.

The house was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing. Big enough for our large group, the kitchen had all the cookware we needed, Wi-Fi and cable TV so we didn't miss any of the March Madness games, and the hot tub was wonderful. Only about 10 minutes from being on the slopes at Breckenridge or to take a nice walk around town. Pet friendly property that our dogs enjoyed as well. We would definitely rent again.
