"Wilderness" is a modern mountain retreat just three miles south of Breckenridge, in the Town of Blue River. Unlike many properties in the area, it is easily accessed from Highway 9 and only a five minute drive to Main Street dining/shopping and ski resort gondola parking.
Wilderness is a high efficiency, green design by Blu Homes (as featured in Dwell magazine) completed in 2009. The property is located near the end of a quiet road, and backs to National Forest Service land. The most dramatic feature of its open floor plan, are the twenty foot ceilings, and walls of windows that truly bring nature into the main living space - and is complemented by the modern finish and furnishings found throughout.
Wilderness guests will enjoy a fully equipped chef's kitchen, complete with Bosch appliances and large prep island/breakfast bar. The custom dining table seats ten comfortably, and the breakfast bar seats four. Guests will love the outdoor space with ample seating and views of the spruce and aspen forest. The outdoor gas fireplace is a wonderful gathering spot year round, and an oversized hammock and kids sandbox are welcomed additions for the summer months.
UPDATE: As of June 2017, Wilderness also offers now a custom built outdoor Wind River spa for our guests - equipped with twin 5hp pumps (versus the more common, single 3hp pump configuration) to work out the kinks of your ski or cycle day! The outdoor living space was not compromised by the addition, as an extension to the concrete patio was constructed to accommodate this new amenity.
Wilderness has three large bedrooms: master (one king), guest (one queen), bunk room (four twins), plus an open loft area with convertible sofa beds (two full). It offers one full bathroom located near the guest sleeping quarters (with full size HE washer/dryer) and an en suite bathroom in the master bedroom. Four adults and four children are comfortably accommodated in the bedrooms, and four additional adults in the loft.
Wilderness is outfitted with two HD TVs, full premium cable channels, Xfinity DVR, and a Boston Acoustic sound system in the main living space. The loft area also has a desk with LCD monitor for connecting laptop, and the entire home is served by high speed wireless Internet.
It's dramatic contemporary design, comfortable living spaces and convenient location, will make your stay at Wilderness a truly unique Breckenridge experience for the entire family.
