About Doug and Gerri Rudig

As Colorado residents, we love the mountains where we worked and raised our children when they were young. Returning later in life to enjoy the blue sky, we dreamed of sharing a home where there was ample room to explore the trails and still be close to Denver.

Doug and Gerri Rudig purchased this house in 2015

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time here! The house was spacious and the owners take really great care of it. You cannot beat the mountain views! I would recommend renting a car if you plan to stay here as it is about a 5-mile drive into Breckenridge. Highly recommended!

Amazing house

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing! It was very clean and well appointed. Plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen had everything you need to cook with. Spices, oils, flour, sugar, coffee etc. The refrigerated even had a ton of condiments which we rarely see in the houses we have rented before. The views were spectacular and it was so quiet and peaceful. A short 5 minute drive into Breckinridge. The owners were very easy to communicate with and checked in to make sure everything was ok.

Perfect Mtn Stay for 2 Families

  • 4 of 5

The layout of this home could not have been more perfect for 2 families. 2 master bedrooms. Tons of sleeping space in the extra bedrooms. Very clean. We had a family of 6 and a family of 5 and nobody felt crowded. Had tons of privacy. The kitchen was a dream vacay kitchen for meal prep/cooking. If it was daylight outside, kids were sledding out front. Very safe outdoor area. No traffic. Easy drive to the slopes. Owners were very helpful.

Couldn’t be happier!

  • 5 of 5

If you’re looking for a beautiful home with extremely nice and helpful owners.. then look no further! Not only is the home very clean, but the location is amazing! It’s located right off the highway and only a short drive from Breck. I appreciated the owner’s advice and helpfulness when it came to upcoming weather. If we come back to the area, this will be the first place we stay! Thank you very much!
