Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

What makes our totally remodeled mountain home so special?

• True ski in – right to the elevator, if you like

• Quick lift access – walk to gondola or free bus right in front to all lifts

• Four queen beds – handcrafted Western pine logs

• Great location – one block to historic downtown restaurants, bars and shops

• Western décor – antiques, photos, cowboy chaps, Indian crafts & more

• Elevator & hot tubs – you’ll be happy for them at day’s end

Our spacious condo is in a great location for both skiing and nightlife. The layout works well for families or couples: two private suites, each with full bath & each with two queen-sized handcrafted Western pine log beds. This is our second home and we’ve outfitted it like a home – not a motel. A few other highlights: three LED TV sets with DVD players, Old Hickory log cabin dining chairs, full size washer and dryer, granite countertops, 85 channel HD cable TV, gas fireplace, quick recovery hot water heater, new living room furniture, ultra-quiet dish washer, new flat top stove, secure WiFi, gas fireplace, and more.

Our slope-side location directly on the Four O’Clock Ski Run makes getting on and off the slopes a delight. After you’ve enjoyed your runs, you’ll be soaking in one of our hot tubs while other skiers are still walking back to their condos. Ski access is by free bus right out front to all base lifts & the gondola. Free buses also go to Keystone, Copper Mountain, or Arapahoe Basin. Or walk to the gondola (3 blocks). For fun in the evening, you are only a three minute walk from the heart of downtown.

The kitchen is well-equipped, but restaurants and bars in all price ranges are within two blocks. An outdoor gas grill is convenient for your use, and a supermarket is a few blocks away. The floor-to-ceiling, south-facing windows provide warmth and a view of Mount Baldy from the private balcony.

Your car is protected in covered parking within the building and the elevator is a big help in getting your belongings to the unit. A ski closet immediately by the front door protects your ski equipment. Enjoy our snow sleds, books, games and movies.

The fun Western décor will provide plenty of conversation. Along with Western posters, old cowboy photos and antique photos of Breckenridge, you’ll find authentic Indian handicrafts, Cowboy chaps, hats and spurs, and a real deerskin Indian shirt. Check out the Clint Eastwood movie poster in Portuguese.

International visitors love our place -- 2017/18 will see guests from New Zealand, Australia, and Mexico.

Ask about our weekly rate discount.

And, please, for the comfort of all our guests, NO pets and NO smoking of any kind in the unit, on balconies, or on the grounds. Sawmill Creek is a smoke-free facility.

About Steve Browning

Colorado is our summer home and we love it here. After growing up in Colorado, we were finally able to return after living in the East for many years.

Steve Browning purchased this condo in 2001

Why Steve Browning chose Historic District

Breckenridge is probably the most fun town in Colorado with wonderful downhill skiing, snowboarding, cross country, skating, and snow shoeing. Tons of restaurants and activities. You'll love it as much as we do.

What makes this condo unique

Location, location, location -- ski to the door, free bus to base lifts & gondola right out front, one block to historic downtown.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was my first time using VRBO and what a great experience. Steve and Anne were very responsive, informative and personable. They even sent a "things to know" with directions, favorite restaurants and ski rentals...we used just about all of it. Their condo was fantastic and incredibly convenient to the slopes...practically skied into the elevator and the shuttle to the gondola took 5 mins or less. The condo is nicely decorated and easy to lounge and nap in. My favorite part was the nicely the kitchen was equipped making it really easy and fun to do home cooking. I recommend this to anyone headed for Breckenridge.

Perfect...

  • 5 of 5

Perfect Location, Perfect Condo, Perfect Vacation... Easy access to the entire town of Breckenridge as well as multiple options to get on the hill for skiing. Highly recommend finishing your day at the Vista Haus (midway up Peak 8) with a cold beer and then hit the 4 o'clock run all the way to your back door step. Lone Star Sports directly across the street for all your rental needs & multiple restaurants within walking distance! RENT THIS PLACE NOW!

Location is PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights at this Condo. It had plenty of space for all of our stuff (Family of 5). Well equipped with kitchen supplies, games/cards etc. Being able to log into Netflix was awesome! The best part of this place by far was the ability to walk 20 ft to the bus stop and be on the Snowflake Lift in a matter of minutes and then take the 4 O'clock run right back to the unit! We all enjoyed the hot tubs too. You are also able to walk everywhere! Great place for the price!!!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

The location was fantastic! Everything was an easily walkable distance! The condo had everything we needed. It had a well equipped kitchen, & I would definitely rent this unit again. The owner was SUPER hospitable, & although we didn’t have any issues at all, he was very willing to help and offer advice. GREAT vacation!

Ski Trip Done Right

  • 5 of 5

The Brownings did an awesome job coordinating and setting up this condo for a great stay. There was a group of 5-6 of us for 6 nights. We had everything we needed to make any meal we liked and enjoyed using the cozy fireplace. We were also just a few minutes walk to anywhere in downtown Breckenridge.

Thank you for providing us with a wonderful stay!

Best ski rental ever!

  • 5 of 5

4 friends who meet every year to go skiing, generally rent a two bedroom which is a king in one and two queens in the other. This had two queens in each which was great. The condo was spotless, well equipped and the location was perfect. Would highly recommend!

The gondola is three blocks away, although in snow and ice, we prefer the free full size bus that picks up immediately in front of the building and takes you within minutes to the base mountain. The Snowflake Lift is 1200 feet, but that is a slight uphill walk which many find difficult given the altitude, snow, ice, etc.
