About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Sleeps 10

“Northstar” is a snow lover’s dream. This 4-bedroom, 3-1/2-bathroom home in Blue River has history and charm to provide the most unique of vacations. Equipped for fun in summer and winter months, one of the most endearing features of this property is the outdoor space it provides—complete with a swing set and a pergola to enjoy the fully landscaped surrounding land in summer months. In addition to the space, there are plenty of outdoor games for the guest’s enjoyment; badminton, croquet and horseshoes are a few of the recreational activities to keep all ages entertained. The house sits atop a hill, with views of Northstar Peak. Next to the house is our sledding hill.

Within 10 minutes is world class fishing in the Blue River or South Platte River, alpine and Nordic skiing, golf and the town of Breckenridge. This property stays quiet during all months of the year, but still provides close access to all the recreation Colorado has to offer.

Inside this home awaits a spacious kitchen which opens to a living room/library with a real wood-burning fireplace, so even while cooking everyone’s company can be enjoyed. Move to the living room after cocoa in front of the fire, and a wall of books and flat screen TV provide entertainment for all while vacationing in this rustically-elegant cabin. Outside is a 400 square foot deck with a gas grill and views of Northstar Mountain and the wooded area which surrounds the property. If you’re lucky, you just might see some wildlife stroll by. Adjacent to the library/living rooms is the master bedroom, with a beautiful 100 year old stained-glass window made from colored glasses, beveled glass, jewel glass, and bottle bottom glass. This bedroom has a King-size bed.

Downstairs, there are three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a laundry room. The north bedroom has a queen size bed, two bunk beds, and a 'Baby Bear' wood burning stove. The south bedroom has a queen bed and its own bathroom. The middle bedroom has a queen bed, also.

Atop the garage is our ping pong room with its own TV and stereo for those who want to play or just get away.

Breckenridge Ski Resort is only 10 minutes away, Copper Mountain is only 25 minutes away, and Keystone and Arapahoe Basin are both 30 minutes away. This property is nestled in just the right place to take advantage of recreation all over the county, during all seasons of the year, while also being conducive to activities right where the property sits. The quintessential Colorado vacation awaits you.

Nice clean place. Not far from town.

We had a great stay. We visited Breckenridge. Not far from shops and restaurants. Made an excursion to Buena Vista an hour away.

Beautiful property and location, at a great price!

  • 5 of 5

The property was extremely clean, well maintained, and inviting with a homey, welcoming feel to it. Great value, with plenty of space inside and out. About 10, easy-driving, minutes from Breckenridge.

Beautiful Property with Spectacular scenery

  • 5 of 5

My family spent two weeks at Northstar in August 2017 and none of us wanted to leave. We found this enchanting place to be exactly as advertised. The house and property are beautifully organized with about every amenity you could want. The kitchen is stocked with plenty of tableware, glasses etc and every small appliance you could need. It is so well stocked, in fact, that there is no cabinet or pantry room for food. We made do with a makeshift pantry we set up with our boxes and coolers and did fine. This was the only negative we had (and it was so minor) with the whole experience. The owner even has an oxygen generator on site to help with altitude. We especially enjoyed the two moose who entered the yard during breakfast one morning to snack on the landscape foliage. We've stayed in a lot of vacation rentals over the years and Northstar is by far our favorite. Thanks to the owner for providing such a wonderful experience. We are already planning for a return trip.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week and wished we didn't have to go. The location is convenient to Breckenridge without being on top of others. Blue Lakes is a close by hiking area for those beginner hikers. The house has enough rooms and beds for a large gathering. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a variety of meals. We actually cooked in more than we thought we would. The outside games and the ping pong room brought the family together and away from the electronic devices. One warning: some outside lights are motion sensitive. The fox that walked through the yard a few times a night would turn the lights on. That was a surprise on the first night.
