"First off, the condo is super easy to get to. It is situated on 4 O'Clock Rd about 4 blocks from town. The walk in to town is easy and puts you right in the heart of downtown Breck. It is a straight walk uphill to return, but once you acclimate to the altitude, it's really not bad. The condo has all the comforts of home. Comfy furniture, well-stocked kitchen, washer and dryer, etc. Not sure if this matters to most, but the carpet is wonderfully thick and padded - welcomed after 10 -15 miles of hiking. Outside, you will find several hot tubs to choose from. The outside tub is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the views of Peak 9 and 10. Visible from the bedroom window is the slopes of Peak 8, which you can follow for quite a long distance and hook up to other trails. Right across the street is the Peak 8 chair, which if you are into skiing, makes this the perfect ski in, ski out. We took advantage of the Snowflake trail as it was fall and we were there to hike. The condo is perfectly located to make day trips to Mohawk Lakes, Mt. Quandary, Hoosier Pass and Maroon Bells. We heard rumors of a moose that lives in the mountains right above the condo, but weren't lucky enough to see it. We will definitely be returning to Breck and this affordable, spacious home away from home will be our first choice of places to stay!
As a side note to anyone that enjoys food and trying new places like we do, Cool River Coffee House has a wonderful breakfast menu. The bagel sandwiches are phenomenal! They are closed Tuesday and Wednesday, so it limited the number of times we could eat there. Also, loved Eric's and Flip Side for laid-back, not your typical bar style burgers and bar food. All in all, this condo and cool town have it all!"
