The Perfect Vacation Cabin
The property was amazing to say the least. So much adequate room and great for a large group of people we saw a mama and a baby moose the last day! I love the seclusion of the house really feels like your in the middle of no where nearly no traffic on the road and lots of peace and quiet and only 40 mins to breckenridge which was very convenient!
We are so happy you got to see the moose and baby. Park County is restoring the population and they are thriving here. Please come to visit our lovely mountain homes again. The wildlife are plentiful and the peace and beauty is constant.
We absolutely loved the place. We had a large group and there was plenty of room. The only thing that could be improved is there to be more bath towels, lol. If we had any problems contact was made very easy with the realtor and response was immediate. I use VRBO all over the country and this is the best management company I have come across. Cudos to you!
We plan on returning again in the future.
Awesome home that is fully equipped!
We stayed at The Great Escape for a week of skiing! The home is a vacation on it’s own!! Spacious and fully equipped! Hot tubbing after a day of skiing was terrific. Fireplaces were wonderful in the cold evenings. We would definitely stay there again.
Thank you so much Carol. I am glad you had a good time. We are getting lots of new snow so if you come back, give us a call. The ski conditions are great now. Thank you again. We hope to see you soon!
Definitely a "Great Escape"!!
It's hard to describe how great this house is!! More than enough room for our three families. The children had a marvelous time in the game room--well, I said children, but the adults seem to have just as much fun. If there was anything to change, I wish I had a little better view of the surrounding mountains. There's a lot of trees. This is truly a wonderful place to relax, and for us, to escape the brutal Texas heat!! Susan was great and so easy to work with.
A great place to stay for me and all my kids and grandkids. Big living areas. Big bedrooms. Plenty of room to spread out. Moose seen many mornings along the creek. Was the perfect choice for us.
Amazing and Secluded Vacation Home in the Mountains
Fabulous home for a family gathering. It could not have been a more perfect place for our Christmas reunion. It was much more than promised. We loved the location and the amenities were amazing. We plan to return every year. It was about 30 minutes to Breckenridge but the drive was beautiful.
The home is located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains and is central to almost any outdoor activity you can think of including skiing, boarding, hiking, mountain climbing, horseback riding, white water rafting, ice climbing, ice fishing, fly fishing, canoeing, kayaking, outlet shopping, old mine exploration, show shoeing and much much more.
