Charming 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom cabin in pristine setting! 5 minutes to Gondola
The Powder Pad is a charming 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom cabin nestled against the wetlands of the Goose Pasture Tarn, 3 miles south of Breckenridge. This one of a kind cabin is extremely secluded and backs to hundreds of acres of wetlands and national forest. What makes this cabin so special is the ponds and streams right out of the back door. You will experience the benefits of being in an extremely private setting - yet still being in such close proximity to Breckenridge.
In addition to the 2 bedrooms, the cabin has a loft with a Queen size murphy bed. The cabin sleeps up to 6 people - via 3 Queen size beds.
After a fun day of skiing, the hot tub will be just the ticket to warm you up. You will find this to be an ultra private hot tub experience in the most serene and private setting underneath the stars.
The Powder Pad's kitchen is stocked with all of the amenenties you may need: crockpot, pots and pans, coffee maker, blender, etc.
The living room features a flatscreen Samsung smart TV and a wood burning stove. We stock the cabin with firewood for our guests. There is nothing better than curling up in front of the fire after a day of mountain fun.
There is so much to do in all of the seasons:
In the winter months, in addition to skiing and snowboarding, you can cross country ski or snow shoe right out the back door. There are many hiking trails near the Powder Pad.
In the summer months, you and your guests will enjoy 3 decks off of the cabin that add to the living space. You can enjoy your morning coffee on the upper back deck, listening to Spruce Creek that runs right through the back yard. The beautiful ponds off of the back of the cabin boast beavers and fish. Grab a fishing pole and take a walk through 'Moose on the Loose' trail right out of the back of the cabin. Convening around the fire pit in the evening with s'mores is the perfect way to end a summer mountain day.
In the Fall, the whole scene around the cabin explodes with shades of gold. The intimate view of the famous Boreas Pass is yours to take in from either of the back decks.
There has been many wildlife spotted from the Powder Pad including our local Moose, Beaver, Deer, Great Blue Heron, Hummingbirds, Osprey, and Geese. All observed from the back deck of the Powder Pad. What will you see when you stay???
If there is anything we can do to make your stay more comfortable, please let us know.

Why Shawn and Kate chose Blue River
We were looking for a property that was close to Breckenridge, yet private and serene. We have found this getaway as a huge blessing when we need a breather from the daily grind. Shawn's favorite season is Winter time and Kate's is the Summer. The Powder Pad is so enjoyable in any season.
What makes this Cabin unique
We love the summer time at the Powder Pad because of it's private setting and water features. There is nothing better than falling asleep in the mountains with the sound of a stream to lower your stress level. We are sure you will fall in love with our charming cabin, just as much as we have.

It’s got it all!
This place is great! Very homey feel from the minute you walk in. Loved the wood burning stove and hot tub after a long day on the slopes. Beds were very comfy, the kitchen has every pot, pan and utensil you will need to make a great meal. Views were amazing. We had such a time . Can’t wait to plan another trip back!
Wonderful property and experience
Lovely, well-equipped home near Breckenridge. Owners left a nice welcome basket with a note - such a nice touch! Hot tub overlooking the field is bliss.
Excellent with all the amenities needed and more.
We spent the Christmas holiday there and loved the privacy and charm of the cabin. A great deal of thought was put in to the property (ie Hot Tub with warming walkway on back deck!). On Christmas morning in the continuous snow we were greeted by a giant moose just off the back deck. Magical!
Perfect Honeymoon Stay
We loved staying at the Powder Pad! We came to get married at Sapphire Point in Lake Dillon which is just a 20 minute drive. We were close to everything in Breckenridge yet still comfortably secluded. The cabin had everything we needed for a fantastic stay. Would highly recommend staying and would love to return one day
This place was the perfect romantic getaway for my husband and I duringb our hiking trip we loved every minute of it and the cottage is completely stocked with all of the necessities it was the best trip ever and even saw some moose at the end of our stay❤️
Weather was awesome and so was property. Far enough outside of town to enjoy the mountains and no close neighbors but short drive into town for all we needed. Beautiful backyard and view.
