About the property

4 Bedrooms+ Private Loft, 3 bathrooms, In Town, Mountain Views, Hot Tub and Yard

The Nest on Briar Rose offers 4 bedrooms plus a private loft, 3 bathrooms, 2 gas fireplaces, 3 distinct living areas each with comfortable seating and 65" HD flat screen television and a huge 8 person hot tub, new (as of 2018) gourmet Wolf stove (not pictured), high end Weber grill and Green Mountain Smoker. This 3,750sqft family friendly home will allow each generation the opportunity and the space it needs to spread out and relax at their own speed and then come back together for large group dinners, conversation and games.

Our home offers incredible mountain views from nearly every room, a large fenced flat yard (1/2 acre) perfect for the kiddos to explore in the summer or have a snowball fight in the winter. Best of all, you will appreciate the privacy this single family house affords, while still being within walking distance of everything the Town of Breckenridge has to offer.

It’s a quick 5-7 minute walk (less than 2-minutes driving) to the BreckConnect Gondola, with access to Peak 7 and Peak 8. You’re just 2 blocks from Main Street’s restaurants, shopping and bustling nightlife. Groceries are literally just minutes away with City Market, the liquor store, gas and ATM conveniently located within a ¼ mile. For our golfers Breckenridge Golf Club is just 4 miles away. The Nest offers plenty of off street parking, but then again with this location, “No Car, No Problem”.

Because we know you will be tired after playing hard taking extra attention has been given to a great bed and a good night’s sleep. All the bedding is Hotel Style with luxury 600 thread count sheets, down or down alternative duvets and bed throw. You'll feel like you're in an upscale hotel.

There is High Speed Wireless Internet, 3 Large Flat Screen TV's, Premium HD Cable, Washer and Dryer, as well as upgraded towels, and extra niceties to make your stay enjoyable. High ceilings with large wooden beams, triangle shaped windows, 2 gas fireplaces and mid-century modern decor compliment the 'Chalet' feeling. The location and amenities of this home makes this a great vacation home year-round. In summer world class mountain biking and hiking await you. In winter you will love skiing and sledding and all the snow sports the Rocky Mountain’s provide.

Why Karen Tscharner chose Historic District

The Nest on Briar Rose is a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of city life for ourselves, our three little birds (our chickens), our friends and family and now we hope you.

To quote Bob Marley and our wedding song, when you come to The Nest on Briar Rose “don’t worry about a thing, ‘cause every little thing’s gonna be alright"

What makes this house unique

We love this house because of so many things....

1) Location! Can't be beat!! Walk Everywhere

2) Yard! Private but still right in town!

3) Space! The house is large enough to spread out and not be on top of each other.

4) Feel! It's the thing can't quite put your finger on, but this house is warm and inviting! It's got great energy

5) Huge Hot Tub and New Wolf Stove

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Initially we were nervous about going on a week-long vacation with my parents and our 4 young children (4,5,7,9) but we thoroughly enjoyed this large, spacious home.  No one ever felt cramped and we could come together or go separately for alone time when needed (even the kids). The kids thoroughly enjoyed playing in the backyard, we all enjoyed walking to Main Street and the Gondola and my husband and I REALLY enjoyed our “date night” walks.

And Karen, thank you so much for all the little things that you put in the house, like the books and various games.  Once the kids grew tired of their own things there was still plenty for them to enjoy.  Not once did we hear “I’m bored”, that is an amazing feat to accomplish on a vacation when you have the age spread of my children.  LOL

  Who would have thought that it could get hot in Breckenridge in July, so we especially appreciated the bedroom air-conditioners and we all agreed the beds were very comfortable.

  The home is beautifully decorated and we felt at home as soon as we walked in the front door. Being from Louisiana we think having the kids experience snow for the first time would be wonderful in our “new home away from home”. We have all agreed to come back again!

Owner's Response: We would love to have you come back to your " home away from home" anytime! Winter in Breckenridge is really special and would be an awesome place for your kids to experience snow for the first time.

Excellent location and extremely comfortable home.

  • 5 of 5

The house was great, we had a big group from South Florida in for spring ski. Karen was a great host and was very gracious with her acomodations. Both Adults and children had a great time in the home and really enjoyed our stay. The location and ammeneties in the home are excellent. We grilled and enjoyed the hot tub on some nights and strolled down Main Street for dinner and a crepe on others. Overall the home was outstanding and we will be staying again in the near future.

Fantastic host and house that turned out to be just as good as advertised.

  • 5 of 5

Karen was very prompt in her responses and provided a lot of helpful information for our stay. The house itself is just as good as advertised and the location is incredibly convenient (short walk to the gondola and Main St).

Beautiful large home in perfect location for a Ski Trip!

  • 5 of 5

We had 8-10 individual co-workers stay for a team building weekend and the house was perfect. The home was large with enough bedrooms, bathrooms and space to have privacy if needed or socialize if not. Having mix of men and women co-workers was important to have the space and the house delivered.

Karen and Eric clearly understand how to make an ideal home for vacationers. They had heated floors and garage. Large sonos speaker in main room which for us being music lovers was perfect. Ski rack in garage and large mud room when walking in for equipment. Everything you would need in kitchen for groups of 12+. The kitchen and family room were our main hangout spots with plenty of space to sit and socialize. Plenty of large trash bags making cleanup simple.

We had one minor thing happen with toilet chain coming off and when I text Karen she had a maintenance person there immediately to fix. There's also something to be said on Karen who reached out prior to connect if needed anything on house/area and during stay just to check in. Her and Eric were very responsive and accommodating making stay even better.

5 Star review from our group and would love to come again in the future. Thank you for making such a beautiful home!

Beautiful house in the heart of Breck

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 2 weeks in the summer with 2 families. Main plus points of the house are that it's spacious, beautiful (views of the mountains from many rooms) and a few minutes walk from Main Street while still being quiet and right by Breck's town trail network. We had two toddlers on completely different nap schedules, and it was no problem having one play enthusiastically in one area while the other one napped elsewhere. The adults particularly enjoyed sitting in the upstairs lounge and deck and enjoying the evening light as well as the grill and hot tub, as well as not having to drive to (and from!) the town's bars and restaurants.

The house is full of books, art and (importantly for us) toys and games. It definitely feels like a house that's set up to the owners' standards and not a cookie-cutter rental. And the owner was extremely responsive to any questions we had, so any issues just ask. Only downside was that it was on the pricier side for Breckenridge but in our view totally worth it.
