"We stayed at This Crystal Peak Lodge property for 9 days. It was a wonderful location to retreat from Alabama heat. Just opening the windows brought plenty of cool air, and a great view of the mountains.
The condo was well appointed with high quality appliances, cookware, and cooking utensils. The kitchen was also well stocked with spices and extras that saved money and trips to the grocery. More extras included beautiful granite countertops, a hair drier, magnified, lighted makeup mirror, lots of towels and comfortable beds.
Crystal Peak Lodge had a great steam room, good exercise equipment, and outdoor whirlpools. It also had a shuttle that would take you to town with only a few minutes notice. There was a business center with computer and printer. The elevators were fast, and the underground parking was heated, safe and secure.
Though Breckenridge felt quite touristy, the food and drinks were great. We particularly liked The Blue Stag Saloon. There are so many active outdoor activities available, that you could stay for months and never take the same hike or bike ride, and the views from every angle are hard to beat.
The only drawback to staying at this condo is the altitude. At 10,000ft., it is high. If you are coming from a low altitude, it is imperative to hydrate, eat carbs, remain mostly sedentary and totally sober for a couple days until you have adjusted.
I highly recommend this condo if you are looking for a comfortable, well appointed place in a beautiful area."
