Enjoy the comforts of a home away from home.

A gorgeous home surrounded by old growth pines creates a serene setting for this mountain gem. We invite you to experience the best of Colorado's Rocky Mountains in a private setting.  We are located just five miles from downtown Breckenridge and all that it has to offer. Terrific skiing, hiking, golfing, and the downtown shops, restaurants and entertainment are minutes away.

Our home features a gourmet kitchen which opens to the dining and living areas, with tons of natural light. The high ceilings on both levels accentuate the spaciousness of this home, while the in-floor radiant heat keeps things cozy.

A loft on the second floor features a gaming area with a flat screen TV and three gaming systems. An outdoor hot tub is just a few steps out the back door. There's also an entertainment system with a dvd library, cable tv, streaming, and free Wifi.

There's a large heated two-car garage, a paved driveway plowed for your convenience, and plenty of storage space for your gear.

We invite you to read through the amenity details and policies listed below. We look forward to sharing our home with you.

                                                              Fantastic Home in Beautiful Setting

                                                              We recently stayed here with a family that uses VRBO extensively. We were all blown away by how beautiful the home is and how quiet the area is. The house is well appointed with nice furniture, comfortable bedding, and plenty of open space. The kitchen and laundry room had everything you need for a stay. Everything is clearly labeled, with instruction manuals for everything. The kids loved the loft, the selection of movies, video game consoles and board games. The adults loved how incredibly clean and organized the entire house is! They have literally thought of everything you'll need to have and know in order to enjoy the place.

                                                              Raphaela is extremely nice and responded to all inquiries quickly. When there was a mistake with the VRBO invoice, she was more than willing to wade through the details to help us figure it out! She clearly wants her guests to have an outstanding experience. We would absolutely stay here again and recommend it to others.

                                                              Beautiful area and property!

                                                              Second time to stay at property and hope to return again and again! Only positive things to say about owners!

                                                              Beautiful well kept home!

                                                              Kathy C.

                                                              We absolutely loved this vacation home! It is well stocked with everything you could possibly need when traveling. The location was also great (about 10 minutes from downtown Breckinridge.) We couldn’t be happier with our stay here!

                                                              One word - AMAZING!

                                                              Raphaela and the home we’re nothing short of amazing. We had such a wonderful weekend and were so thankful to the family for sharing their beautiful home with us. We would absolutely stay again!

                                                              Beautiful property!

                                                              We enjoyed our recent stay immensely in Blue River at this home. It is very spacious,

                                                              well-equipped & furnished. The radiant heat in the floors & the efficient & effective gas fireplace, kept the entire home warm during the area-wide power outage during blizzard-like snow & winds. It is located about 5 miles out of Breckenridge in a beautiful neighborhood.

                                                              The owners were very attentive but luckily, did not have any issues with the home itself.

                                                              We would definitely stay here again! Thank you!

                                                              Great stay

                                                              Brian D.

                                                              Minor issues all handled professionally by the owner and management company. Would stay again.
