The Blue River Lodge was purpose-built as a ski chalet, with a stricter building code than a family home. There are four Master Suites, plus three more bedrooms. The rooms are very private, with fire-rated doors to each bedroom and extra soundproofing throughout the house.

The main floor includes a sunny, vaulted-ceiling living room with three large leather sofas surrounding a gas fireplace, a dining room with seating for fourteen, a gourmet kitchen with all new stainless steel appliances; two ovens, side-by-side refrigerator (additional side-by-side refrigerator in garage), 5-burner gas cook top, microwave, dishwasher and professional grade oversized cooking utensils.

Two separate stairways lead to the second floor with two king bedded rooms (each with en suite full bathrooms, private decks, TV/VCR/DVD, twin size rollaway and one with twin size sleeper loveseat), two twin-bedded rooms (each with en suite shower bathrooms and both can be made up as king beds, one with a large, sunny deck), and two smaller twin-bedded rooms that share a large full bathroom across the hallway.

The location overlooks our private pond and private section of the Blue River in Trafalgar/Warrior's Mark, a short walk to the base of Peak Nine, Main Street Breckenridge restaurants and shopping, and steps away from the Breckenridge FREE RIDE shuttle stop.

Enjoy skiing all of Summit County; Breckenridge, Keystone, Arapahoe Basin, Copper Mountain. Vail and Beaver Creek are just 45 minutes away. In summer enjoy hiking, mountain biking, and rollerblading on the miles of Summit County bikeways and trails. Go horseback riding, rock climbing, Gold Medal trout fishing, or golfing at the highly acclaimed Breckenridge Golf Course.

Learn to kayak in a heated indoor pool at the Breckenridge Recreation Center. Ice skate in the summer at the new indoor rink. Pack a lunch and go four wheeling to nearby ghost towns of the Rockies. Try sailing on Lake Dillon, surrounded by 14,000-foot peaks or water/jet skiing on Green Mountain Reservoir. There are over 1,000 GeoCache sites within 100 miles of Breckenridge.

About Sarah

Your hosts, Hap, Margaret & Sarah Henderson, enjoying one of our favorite picnic spots just a short drive from our Blue River Lodge. For over a decade we have been hosting ski groups in winter and family reunions in summer.

Sarah purchased this lodge in 1997

Why Sarah chose Breckenridge

We enjoy skiing in the winter but summers in Breckenridge are even better. We had been renting vacation homes in various parts of Colorado each summer and when we had an opportunity to purchase our 7 bedroom Blue River Lodge as a rental property next door to our personal 'Trout House' retreat we jumped at the chance.

What makes this lodge unique

Our lodge is an easy walk to Main Street or just hop on the shuttle two doors down. We are the only home in town with a private fishing pond in addition to private river frontage. Hiking and mountain bike trails are nearby and the lifts at Peak Nine are also closeby.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fabulous week skiing. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Great location for skiing. Beautiful home - plenty of room to eat together, well stocked kitchen and great amenities. Hot tub works perfectly! Will go back again for sure! We had a party of 17 and slept very comfortably.

Colorado summer trip

  • 5 out of 5
We selected this home as our vacation spot because it was at the town level (versus up 2000 additional feet). This helped our group not be quite so affected by the altitude and was very convenient for popping into town. We have stayed up the mountain off of Boreas Pass road before, and it is a little more convenient to stay closer to the town level. Plus we were able to rent bikes and ride right to the house without having to deal with transporting the bikes via car or being limited to riding to/from the bike shop without keeping the bikes overnight.

The house itself was very spacious with a nice compact design on the second floor with all of the 6 primary bedrooms in a neat little area (there is a 7th bedroom downstairs). It was very nice for 4 out of the 6 upstairs bedrooms to have their own bathroom and king beds, and the balconies worked out really well. The 5th hallway bathroom served the other 2 upstairs bedrooms and the downstairs bunkroom.

The kitchen is nice and very functional with 2 ovens, and gas stovetop and microwave. The extra fridge in the garage is ideal for drinks and leftovers. The dining room table was the perfect size for our group of 10 adults with our 3 kiddos sitting at the bar.

Having the ability to walk down to the river was nice, but be prepared to highstep it through some very high grass/weeds to get there.

Our only suggestion as we left was that we wished the internet connection was better. As it was it was pretty much not functional with only intermittant connectivity and usually only 1mbps speeds when it did connect. Trust me, we didn't want to be on the internet much anyway, but occasionally I did need to research activities, take care of work, send pictures out on email, etc.

I have vacationed in Breckenridge 3 times now and have rented 3 different places. This year I researched dozens of places and even created a pro/con spreadsheet for the top 25 places and ultimately decided on the Blue River Lodge (for my group of 13). After having been there, I would definitely book it again without re-doing any research at all. This place has everything you are looking for in a vacation spot. Clean, up to date, great location, lots of space, nice owners, etc!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the tip about the Wi-Fi, it has now been fixed and is working well. We also like to keep the area around our pond natural and it is now surrounded by wildflowers in the Summer. We do have a nice stairway down to the pond and a trail all around the pond and to the river.

Great place for a Group

  • 5 out of 5
We chose this house because of its size and proximity to town. It was the perfect amount of space for the 13 people we had staying (ages 25-30). We rented it for a long weekend to celebrate birthdays and go skiing. The common areas were large enough so that we could all hang out together, and the hot tub was a welcome treat after a long day of skiing. Having 4 master suites was also great, as it gave all of the couples room and privacy, and we had plenty of bathrooms for everyone. The mornings were incredibly peaceful, and there is a beautiful river running through the back of the neighborhood- pure bliss! This was the perfect house for our trip- we highly recommend it!

Great time; great house. Though large and spacious, cozy at the same time. Loved the living room with the fireplace separate from the family room with the TV. Loved that we could actually seat 14 adults at one table for meals or just story telling! And 5 little ones at their own table…great. We’ve done this for 31 years now at Thanksgiving (and several times and other places with 3 couples we travel with) and this house by far had the best equipped kitchen we’ve experienced. When you have people that actually cook and/or a crowd, it’s WONDERFUL. Didn’t even need my crock pot this time to keep the mashed potatoes hot for 19 people. It was there. Kuddos! There are 3 things I’d suggest. I’m sure there’s a formula for how much TP should be on hand but it would be nice to have a few emergency rolls in the pantry or garage. Loved the heated garage set up with foosball & ping pong AND that second refrigerator. (Pool table not in great shape was the only disappointed to this group who loves ping pong. Reported same to owner who said would take care of it for the next occupants!) The HUGE red fox that visited every night when we were in the hot tub was a favorite thing for the little and us big kids to look forward to. A really nice property.

Girl's Getaway from NOLA

Girl's Getaway from NOLA
  • 5 out of 5
We had a great time in Breck at this awesome mountain home. 14 of us traveled from New Orleans for a girl's getaway/Bachelorette long weekend and we could not have picked a better place. The house was very clean, more fully stocked than we could have imagined and there was plenty of room for us to all spread out and not be on top of one another. The ability to be able to walk into town was a huge plus, and the fact that it was Oktoberfest weekend really sealed the deal. We dined at Hearthstone Restaurant (on the recommendation list) and it was great, and we also spent some good quality time at Breckenridge Brewery. We would definitely consider returning to not only Breck but also to this house. What a beautiful town!
