Property type house

About the property

House, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, Sleeps 4

This pet-friendly Blue River vacation rental is a peaceful retreat in a classic A-frame cabin surrounded by nature, and close to skiing, hiking, and biking.

About five minutes from Breckenridge and 22 miles from Copper Mountain, this pretty, custom-built cabin is less than a half mile from the Blue River Trail system for biking in the summer time, and about six miles from Quandary Peak, one of Colorado's 14,000 foot peaks!

This home includes a washer/dryer, cable, and WiFi, with plenty of natural light. There's plenty of space for up to four guests and one dog (for an additional fee).

Gather around the wood stove and TV on the L-shaped sofa. Even the dog has its own bed to lie on. If you have an infant with you, there is a Pack-n-Play available.

Dining in will be a delicious, fun-filled affair in this updated galley kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. Make a giant brunch with the waffle iron, then put the dirty dishes in the dishwasher before heading out for the day. Store your dry ingredients in the walk-in pantry next to the washer/dryer.

The upstairs loft is blocked off by a baby gate, and has a queen bed and a nice desk on which to type out emails or pen thoughts into your journal.

Ski the slopes, raft and fish The Blue, or hike the mountain sides from the comfort of this charming Summit County vacation rental!

*Please note that the home is heated by a wood-burning fireplace.

About Vacasa, CO - Summit County Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home����������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������our team is standing by!

Awesome Vacation at Blue River Cabin in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

This was a sweet place from which we launched our hikes each day. What a nice place to relax during the evenings, everything was super comfortable and well thought out. A couple simple suggestions to make guest's stays more convenient...

It would be nice to have local guidebooks on the area such as attractions, restaurants etc. It makes getting acclimated a bit easier. Since we likely won't be back to the area we left our hiking guide behind for others to use.

Even though it was CLEARLY stated, we missed the fact there is no furnace and it got chilly at night. The wood stove was awesome but perhaps more detailed instructions for the damper would be nice.

We LOVED the Lake Superior decor, it's our favorite midwestern vacation spot! Thanks so much for creating this relaxing space.

Wonderful Labor Day Weekend Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely adorable, and we had a fantastic time! We enjoyed cooking at home, and the kitchen included all the items you could possibly need. It is a very quick drive to Breckenridge and all that the cute mountain town offers. We loved enjoying nature and even saw three moose who lounged near the front deck of the home, in addition to the lovely starry nights. We have already been recommending this house to all of our friends - it is awesome!

OK on outside, but problems inside

  • 2 of 5

Book what appeared as a very nice A-frame cabin for several days of a summer vacation near Breckenridge. Cool late summer weather (30's) had us wanting to turn on the furnace. But furnace gas had been turned off and was told by customer service that we would have to rely on the woodstove. Did not warm up the entire cabin. Dishwasher did not work. Icemaker and refrigerator did not work. Record player attached to the radio did not work. Notified customer service on many of these issues and never heard back from them. Probably would not recommend renting this cabin or renting from this agency for lack of customer support

Owner's Response: We apologize that we were so slow to respond to these maintenance items. The woodstove has been added to the home's description so it does not surprise future guests; this is the only form of heat the owners use during their winter stays, and it keeps the cabin very warm. The dishwasher had an issue with the lock, but it has been fixed and the dishwasher is now working properly. The ice maker has been turned on so it is now making ice. The record player is still broken, and the owners have been notified so they can consider replacing it.

Perfect place for a honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was the perfect place for our honeymoon. Very close to Breckenridge and hiking. The cabin itself was clean and charming. There are no mountain views from the cabin itself, but beautiful views are just a short drive away. Hope to come back with friends!

The perfect quiet place for us and 2 dogs

  • 5 of 5

This A frame cabin is so sweet and cozy! It was perfect for me, my husband, our dog, our friend and her dog. When you walk in through the door, you immediately feel at home...a cozy living room that flows right into the kitchen. The kitchen is the heart of a home in most living spaces and it definitely is in this little cabin - home. The kitchen has upgraded appliances (the fridge is huge) and nice beautiful counters with plenty of space to prep your meals. (We stopped at city market (king soopers) and picked up food to grill). The Bathroom was roomy with nice counter tops and plenty of towels and wash cloths. Across from the bathroom is the tidiest laundry room with soap, dryer sheets and updated washer and dryer. The bedroom downstairs has a bed and area to put your clothes, 2 windows you can open for fresh air (yay for screened windows). The loft upstairs is super cute and cozy. It also has a writing desk. It may be a bit hot up there so there is a fan. The best part: the beautiful deck in front! Wonderful relaxing space for yoga, eating meals or just sitting around and taking in nature! Also, the doggies felt very much at home on the deck ?

Thank you for the great stay!

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of bang for the buck with this little A frame located in the center of Summit County. Anything you need to cook and/or grill out is provided....but we ate out every meal anyway. Coffee maker, nice washer and dryer, comfortable beds, good shower, nice wood burner and plenty of wood - this place has all you need! The record player wasn't operable, which was a bummer since the homeowner has a really nice collection of records. Other than that there's not a single thing about this cabin that wasn't tip-top!
