About Patty Soechtig

You will appreciate the homeyness and extra amenities we offer that you won't find in a rental house.

Beautiful place and views!

  • 5 of 5

We just loved the peaceful and beautiful location, just minutes from town and so convenient. The owners were great at responding to

My questions, even helped us decide the best place to take my beginner skiers. House is well furnished all the way to the kitchen pans and spices! We will be back!

Awesome view of Breckenridge peaks

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything we needed and the owners are very organized and responsive. The view from the master is exactly what you want to wake up to every morning. Kitchen had all the necessary gadgets, many of which we didn't use. Can't beat the 5 minute drive to the gondola parking lot for convenience. Would stay here again and would highly recommend. Thanks for sharing your home.

Perfect location, great experience! The view is unreal.

I would come back here 100 times and recommend this house to anyone. It has everything you need and then some.paty is very organized and made it so easy to plan. The location is perfect, just far enough away to have peace and quite, but only a couple minute drive to town or to the gondola. Thank You for an awesome vacation!

One of the best of the best - clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

My family of six regularly use VRBO for our vacations. Three of those vacations in Breck alone. Each time we have had wonderful homes, but continued to change homes looking for the perfect home. We may have found it. Open arrival the first thing we noticed was how clean and well kept the house was. The house was spotless. My wife is a clean freak so she appreciated that. After a few days the word of the day was 'comfortable', the beds, furnishings, kitchen, and other just made us feel at home. None of us were ready to leave after our week. I'm not sure there was one time where we needed anything, the home is so well appointed. Kitchen supplies and spices are all there. Patti even provides a list of the spices, as well as many other items provided, before you arrive so you can plan for any needs. I wish every VRBO owner did that. Tons of towels, pillows, blankets.

TVs in all rooms except the downstairs bedroom was appreciated. And they were easy to operate. I've been in some homes where you need an engineering degree to work them. And if you like a view (and we do) this is one of the best. We loved sitting on the front deck, or in the hot tub which is on the front deck, overlooking Breck and the slopes. Would really be cool in the winter. Even being up the mountain a ways we were only 5 minutes or less to gas station, grocery store and main street. Patti was great to work with, good communication and very professional.

Were there any negatives? Not many and they are all small ones. The door hinges could use some WD-40, many of them squeak and made it hard for me not to wake others early in the morning.

Be careful of the 5 minute garage door timer. If you have your SUV rear door open when it times out the garage door could hit it. Did not happen to us, but it almost did. There is an easy fix, just pull in far enough so your SUV door clears the garage door. I would recommend a sign on the front garage wall with that warning and suggestion.

The door from the kitchen to the garage should have a lock. Especially if children are using the downstairs bedroom. It bothered my wife the door could not be locked. This may not be a concern in a small town like Breck, but living in a large city you get used to having locks.

Bottom line, this is a wonderful home with a great location and fantastic owners.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the complements and suggestions. We took care of the squeaks. Fire codes prevent us from locking the basement/garage door, but I can assure you the garage doors cannot be opened and the outside basement door has two locks on it. The garage door will not go down if something is in the way so no need to worry about that.
