Overview

About the property

Family mountain cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 living areas, 3 Baths close to Breckenridge

Our family friendly home sits in a serene mountain setting with amazing mountain views! We are only three miles to downtown Breckenridge. Enjoy easy access to skiing/snowboarding, snowshoeing trails, mountain biking, hiking, and more in this picturesque mountain setting!

Our 2,100 square foot home has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, two living areas, and an updated kitchen with stainless steel appliances. We provide all the staples so you can focus on enjoying your visit.

The kitchen is stocked with pots and pans, Crock pot, pancake griddle, coffee/tea maker and we keep spices, condiments, coffee, tea, hot chocolate. Everything for the gourmand to cook a delicious meal.

There are flat screen televisions in both living areas and in every bedroom. You will also find DVD players with movies, a Wii game system and games, air hockey, board games and lots of books. No one should ever get bored here! The downstairs living room has a cast iron fireplace; it's a great way to snuggle up and watch movies together or enjoy a snowy evening in the mountains.

Outside, heated mats on the deck will keep your feet warm as you slip into our Arctic Spa hot tub on snowy days. Fire up our one of a kind, custom-made gas fire pit (just like at the ski slopes). Or, relax in the hammock for afternoon naps and enjoy grilling out on the back deck with aspen-wood deck chairs and a two-seater swing made for summer day lounging.

During winter visits, you never have to worry about shoveling snow, we we have a company who plows the drive and shovels the deck. You can just enjoy your vacation!

When you leave the cabin, you are only minutes from so many fun and adventurous activities. In the winter, ski or snowboard at Breckenridge (which is only a five minute drive away), cross country ski, snow shoe, snowmobile on nearby trails. Or, for a change of scenery, you can catch a ride on the free Summit Express Shuttle service; it picks you up Breckenridge and goes to both Keystone or Arapaho Basin ski areas. Copper Mountain and Vail resorts are all a short drive away as well.

After a day on the slopes, you can hit some of the great restaurants in town. Not in the mood to ski or snowboard? How about a sleigh ride or even snow mobile tour? Or, you might take the kids (or just the young at heart) to the great snow-tubing hill in Frisco. Forget your winter coat? There is great shopping in downtown Breck or even hit the outlet mall in Silverthorne.

During warmer months, there are hundreds of trails in Summit County to explore. You can hike a 14er, bike over the pass to Keystone, go white water rafting, catch a ride on a zip line, learn to fly fish, take a Jeep or ATV tour, or tour the local gold mines.

In addition to all of that excitement, there are always special events going on in town like ice sculpture contests, live music, and festivals or relax with a day at one of the great spas.

About Holly

We are a military family. Matt grew up in NY. After graduating from West Point (Go Army), he spent 24 years on active duty Army before retiring and taking a desk job. Holly is a Texan and went to Texas A&M (Gig 'Em) and is a real estate broker and renovation designer.

Holly purchased this house in 2009

Why Holly chose Blue River Breckenridge

We chose this cabin for the location. It is less than five minutes to downtown Breckenridge, yet far enough from town to enjoy peace and quiet. We are very close to ski lifts, Quandry Peak, and the Goose Pasture Tarn (local lake 1/2 mile from the house). Our beautiful mountain cabin is only four houses off Highway 9 (the main road through town). We are minutes from the ski lifts and tons of great hiking, snow shoeing, cross country skiing, and biking. It is a wonderful weekend getaway or a longer vacation with your family. Breckenridge is one of the most scenic mountain areas in the US with unlimited outdoor activities: snow skiing, snowboarding, tubing, mountain biking, fishing, whitewater rafting, snowmobiling, 4-wheeling, hiking, nature, ice skating and more. It is truly the perfect area.

What makes this house unique

Two living rooms (one upstairs and one downstairs) means the adults and kids can have their own spaces. The game-room comes equipped with TV, DVD player, air hockey, Wii with games, books, and board games. There are TVs in every bed room and in both living areas. Free high-speed internet and Wi-Fi use and a desk top computer for your use. Large outdoor deck with hot tub, large gas fire pit, hot tub, and custom made log chairs. Tree house for the young or just young at heart! Three miles from the ski lifts. We have everything you need for your little ones too: high chair, booster seat, toddler table with chairs, sippy cups, bibs, kid friendly dishes, and even a pack n play.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful! Was a huge blessing to our whole family. Never knew life could be this good. We loved our stay here-everything was set up so well. We cooked a couple evenings and even grilled burgers outside for my son's 20th birthday. You have a great place here- it is all so beautiful. Thanks for taking such care to make this a great memory for us!

Fun in the Snow in Blue River, CO. in late March

  • 5 of 5

The Cabin was the perfect size for our family of 6, consisting of grandparents, parents and 2 kids aged 13 and 9. The cabin is very close to Breckenridge for shopping and skiing. We were also an easy drive to several other ski areas, many of which we visited.

The cabin offered a quiet, relaxing atmosphere for the adults with multiple TVs for viewing in down times, and a hot tub to relax in. The kids made use of all that and played fuss ball, air hockey and WII as well. There is a full kitchen and a washer and dryer for those dirty and wet clothes.

Everything was nicely arranged, clean and well maintained. We could not of asked for a better house. Being from Indiana we saw less than 10 inches of snow for the entire winter and Mother Nature filled our need with 2 good snow storms, which provided several hours of outdoor fun for everyone.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for our vacation with our 6 adult children. The deck and hot tub provided a great place to spend time and enjoy the view. One morning we woke up to find a moose standing at the rail of the deck! The location gave us privacy while still being close to many activities. The house was clean and well stocked and provided lots of entertainment options.

Owner's Response: I am so jealous you saw one of the moose up close and personal! We are so glad your family had a great trip and we look forward to hosting your crew again!

Absolutely Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is everything you imagine and more. A perfect get away to enjoy family and friends, while enjoying the surrounding winter scenery. You feel secluded in your mountain home. The kids were never bored due to the air hockey, foosball, and Wii. The home is well equipped with kitchen items, you name it, it was there. The market/grocery store is very close to the cabin. The owner Holly was always on the ball and responded immediately. Everyone was sad to leave, and are talking about coming back in the summer or spring.

Awesome getaway spot

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a fantastic time staying at this cabin over the Christmas and New Year holidays. The cabin is located close to town but far enough out to be very quiet and relaxing. The owners did a fantastic job of communicating with us and making sure our stay was enjoyable. The cabin was very comfortable and warm, even in the cold winter months. The appliances were modern so we were able to prepare some of our own meals. With the cable TV service we did not have to miss any of the college bowl games. I recommend this cabin for a comfortable and relaxing stay.

Such a beautiful cabin

  • 5 of 5

There are just as many things to enjoy inside this beautiful cabin as there are outside. From the well stocked game room to the fire pit and hot tub, we enjoyed every minute of our stay. I want to go back already!

Absolutely Amazing Cabin located conveniently close to Breckenridge!

  • 5 of 5

WOW, just WOW! What an amazing place to rent for our first trip to Breckenridge. This cabin has superb finishes, high quality linens, and loads of space in a quiet setting yet just minutes from downtown Breckenridge. We arrived to a hand written note from the owners and a nice bottle of wine. The fridge had beers and bottles of water already in it. The cabin itself had all the right touches and was superbly done with high end furnishings, creature comforts and all the modern conveniences you could ask for. The main floor has a nice entry way, large living room, dining area, kitchen with a large master suite and secondary bedroom on the main floor as well as a laundry room and another full bathroom. The upper floor had another large bedroom, 3/4 bath and a large open entertaining space with a foosball table, air hockey table, plenty of seating and a tv with a gaming system and more games than you can imagine. The cabin is approximately five minutes from downtown Breckenridge but is just off a main road in a lovely, secluded area with tons of trees and wildlife. What I found most amazing about this getaway was the thoughtfulness of the owners. They provided area information, laundry soap, fabric softener (my wife's input) and many other items that you normally have to purchase and that you can never take home with you after the fact. I found these types of inclusions to be the exception rather than the rule when I've stayed in other VRBOs. We will be back again soon as my 12 year old just asked me the other day when we were headed back to "our cabin" as he now calls it.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you guys had a great time at the cabin. We strive to have the kind of vacation home we would like to go to and keep it stocked with things we don't want to pack to bring with us like: shampoo, soap, toilet paper. We were so happy you found us and can't wait to welcome you back!
