About JanDee Gordon

We are Jan and Lawrence Gordon.

This home was meant to be our 'family ski home' and we have been a family of skiers since our kids were small which led us to Breckenridge and this home.

We have used it and loved it many times with our children and grandchildren but since everyone is so busy in their own lives, we decided to rent it for other families to enjoy.

JanDee Gordon purchased this house in 2006

Why JanDee Gordon chose Breckenridge Area

The house is beautiful, spacious and in an incredible, ski in/out location in Breckenridge where you can enjoy the view of the mountains. During summer you can walk to town by the river. It's Breath-taking.

What makes this house unique

In a great, peaceful neighborhood nestled in the Pines and Aspens. It has an outdoor hot tub and is in a ski in/out location...

Guestbook comments from the manager

Everyone loved the home and especially liked the privacy found in the many sleeping areas. The game room was used a lot along with all the wi-fi toys and hot tub. We found the kitchen very well supplied with cooking and eating utensils and the house was very clean.

Could have been better

  • 3 of 5

We have stayed at many VRBO homes, usually a few every year, and this is the first one where I've had to leave a review of less than 5 stars. We aren't very picky but this home had some issues that are important to mention (specially in regards to safety) as it would have been helpful for us to know before our arrival. We wanted to love this place. However, the house wasn't as kept up as described.

Apparently it had been closed for the past few months for some renovations (so we heard after we arrived) but some of those renovations had yet to be taken care of. Like the broken windows in the master bedroom, the game room, and the boarded up window in one of the downstairs rooms. While this wouldn't have been too bad besides looking bad, one couple who stayed in the room with the boarded up windows couldn't even open their window to get a breeze in, and it's the time of year where that's needed.

It's also nice to have a breeze in those bottom rooms because there's a strong odor that smells like gas that is strongest in the early mornings. Not sure what it is or where it's coming from but it would have been helpful to crack a window and get a cross breeze. It's strongest near the washer/dryer.

Also, the roof was apparently recently fixed. Which is awesome! Unless you're trying to leave the house and realize that the roofers (and apparently no one else that checked on the house before we arrived?) never noticed the massive amount of nails - some of them rusty - all over the driveway. We had to forgo the last morning there with our friends and not do breakfast in town so we could repair our tire at the nearest tire shop, which is in Frisco and closed at noon that day since it was a holiday. A sad way to end our weekend.

Overall, the supplies were there, kitchen was well stocked, towels were plenty, beds were cozy... But, I would have loved that the staff or owners would have warned us that it wasn't in the same advertised condition due to renovations. And maybe not charge the same price as if it was?

Kindly, when I asked, they did reimburse us for our tire, but that's all we heard from them. No real apology about our weekend that didn't turn out how we hoped, no acknowledgement about the large amount of nails in the driveway - thankfully my kids weren't in that area without shoes on!) and really, just not much care for the situation once we left their property. Maybe when the renovations are done, it will be better and hopefully kinder.

Very spacious house. We even managed the ski-in ski-out although tough for boarders.

Great Spot

  • 4 of 5

Everything was as advertised. Great location with easy access to ski resorts and downtown Breckenridge. Beautiful home that can accommodate many people, great for entertaining and cooking for large groups. All bedrooms were comfortable and clean. The only complaints are the "ski in and out" is a bit misleading as I don't really think that is practical. Also, they have a steep driveway so it can be very tough to get in and out of with some snow. We got stuck multiple times even with 4 wheel drive vehicles, but we did have about 3 feet of snow during out stay, so that will happen anywhere.

Overall its a great place and I would highly recommend.

Warriors Retreat highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

The Warriors Retreat in Breckenridge was the most wonderful "home away" experience. Our family and friends thoroughly enjoyed the week, with before skiing breakfasts, after skiing happy hours, and wonderful home cooked dinners. Of course the hot tub on the deck was certainly a plus, which we took advantage of.

The rooms are very spacious allowing us all to gather together, as well as a enough space to separate. The game room was busy most evenings with pool "tournaments". It was nice to have the essentials already available, soaps, hair care, dish soaps, laundry detergent, and some kitchen supplies such as spices and other cooking/baking supplies.

The ski in/ski out was a bit challenging. We were able to ski out without a problem, but skiing back was never figured out. Although, parking for $5.00 at the main lift seemed to be the easier route, since the closest shuttle stop was not close by.

Thank you for your quick response over the ice build up by the garage on the driveway. All was well by the next day.

Thank you for opening your beautiful home to vacationers. Hopefully, a return is in order!

Amazing trip

  • 4 of 5

First COLD Weather vacation. We opted to skip the beach and head to the mountains for our annual family holiday trip. Warriors Retreat could not have been a better choice. Our group included 10 adults, a toddler and an infant. All were accommodated well. Location is great and close to town for those trips to the grocery,restaurants.....and of course the snowboarding/skiing. The property management company was excellent....small problem with hot tub and they were on it! Visited daily to verify it was in working order. We did use the concierge service for a few additional baby items and to put up a Christmas tree. Amy is wonderful and the addition of the tree was great. The game area/pool table was an added bonus.My only comment regarding the home is the 2 lower bedrooms could perhaps be updated with new mattresses and linens. Seem a little tired but overall we couldn't be happier.

Met expectations

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in Warrior's Retreat the second week in August. it very comfortably fit the 10 adults and 7 children in our family. The internet pictures do not do it justice. The single aero bed stored in the office worked out great. So many bath and cleaning products are provided also including spices and many towels. The wireless network was great. The kids loved the "Kids Zone" and the hot tub. There are plenty of pots, pans and dishes. It was very clean, the maintenance dept. was very responsive and arranged for us to get in earlier than the 4:00 scheduled time. We went horseback riding, ripple float, the water park in town and a mine tour, as well as hiking and shopping. I would recommend this property to others. My only recommendation would be that the linens are somewhat old and the mattresses are old too. Also if a pack and play and child seat were provided it would be perfect for all sorts of families.

In the summer you can walk to town by the river- It takes about 20 minutes- or hike up the same trail to gorgeous waterfalls.

Notes:
In the winter you will walk about one block to the Burro Trail that will take you to the Lower Lehman run. To ski back you must be a black run skier and lift up to peak 10 and ski back to Burro Trail. Other skiers can also get back. Or enjoy the snowboarding, cross country, snow shoeing, hiking, rock climbing, sleigh rides, snowmobiling, swimming, tennis, racket ball, yoga, basketball, workouts, concerts, art shows, ice sculptures, and skating rink offered in town. In the Summer, use this luxurious home that backs up to the national forest as you contemplate golf, hiking, running, fishing, river rafting, fishing, horses, tennis, swimming, art shows, Oktoberfest, climbing 6 14000 ft peaks- or just a bbq on the patio. This Exciting & Warm Home is divided into a continuum of levels and suites all centered on the very grand ‘Great Room’ where all can meet before branching off to their own activities - all under the same cozy roof.
