About Bob Collins

I've been a Breckenridge local for 23 years. I build custom homes in the area and rent some of them, including this one, short term, seasonally or long term.

Mostly though, I'm a skier and snowmobiler in the winter and mountain biker and four wheeler in the summers.

I personally manage this property and can make whatever deals suits us each on the spot.

Bob Collins purchased this estate in 2002

Why Bob Collins chose Breckenridge

I built this magnificent home because of the views and proximity to the Breckenridge town center and ski area.

It's only a couple of hours drive to the Denver, Grand Junction and Colorado Springs airports, an hour from world class whitewater rafting and fishing, minutes to the ski resort and town and walking distance to hunting and the back-country. Despite it's proximity, this home is very secluded on ten acres- nearest neighbor is over 1000 feet away!

I first vacationed in Breck in 1979 and was hooked. After school , I moved here permanently. I came for the winter and stayed for the summer.

Spring and fall are great times to visit; most restaurants have 2 for 1 specials and there is no waiting!

What makes this estate unique

Playground for the kids! Swings set, fort, jungle gym, trapeze swing, slides, balance beam, mountain bike trail from patio, horse shoe pits and a gas outdoor fire pit with a curved stone amphitheater.

Killer dollhouse room in the loft. Five structures, ski chalet, mall, restaurant and riding arena and stables- lots of dolls and horse figures. endless fun for young girls!

I especially enjoy the morning hikes, walking the dog after coffee. There is mountain bike downhill course bordering the property. The views of the ski area and sunset are spectacular.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a great stay in this gorgeous home. The families enjoyed the cooking. The kitchen was perfect, plenty of room. The kids kept busy watching movies in the theatre room and the playing in the rec room. There is lots of outdoor space around the property for sledding and playing in the snow. Bob the owner is so nice to deal with, extremely helpful. We will for sure be coming back to this home.

Big Sky Ranch

  • 5 of 5

Bob's home and locale were perfect for our daughter's wedding! Using the deck for the ceremony we could capture all the breathtaking views it provided! The town of Breckenridge was just a short drive away which added to the charm of this area. I would definitely recommend this home for any family event and was very pleased with the home's spaciousness and amenities. Thank you Bob for providing such a beautiful home!

Spectacular vacation house and setting

  • 5 of 5

The property and setting was not only as described, but exceeded our expectations. The house is beautiful and the setting is spectacular with a constant view of the snow-capped Rockies. The convenient location provided activities for every age - 11 to 80! Hiking, biking, zip-lining and Rockies park fun. The amenities in the house itself left nothing to desire from beautiful open space to game and media room to large kitchen to large deck space adequate to seat all 13 of us. The ease of getting to Breckinridge made it convenient for quick pick-up trips to gourmet restaurants to shopping.

This is our fifth family trip. First Italy, then Key West, Isla Mujeres Mexico and Alaska. The unanimous opinion was this one was tops.

We are delighted to have found this VRBO. Bob Collins takes personal care and attention to make sure every aspect of your time at his property is an outstanding experience.

Oh yes, you might ask, "what are the negatives?" Well there was only one pancake turner in the otherwise very-well equipped kitchen. Enough said?

Awesome Place!

  • 5 of 5

This place was spectacular and is perfect for large groups. Plenty of space for large groups, plenty of places to sleep, and with an awesome basement with tons of options for entertainment. It was a bit cold when we were there, but the outdoor area and jacuzzi are great options for a summertime stay. The owner was very responsive to all of our requests and very friendly. Be sure to take advantage of the private chef - definitely one of the highlights of our stay. Overall - highly recommended. We hope to be back soon!

Great Retreat House

  • 5 of 5

This is the fourth time we have used this house for a work gathering. It is an excellent place with incredible views and beautifully furnished rooms. We love bringing our people here as they feel extra pampered in such a nice house. Plenty of sleeping room and space to spread out. We had a large snowstorm while we were there and Bob was very helpful and the driveway and road were plowed quickly. We will use this house again.

Great Breckenridge home for large groups!!

  • 5 of 5

In November of 2015, my family along with 6 other families, stayed at this house. We booked it because of its proximity to Colorado Springs (where we all live) and the fact that it could accommodate a large group, like us, comfortably.

The owner was great to work with! The reservation process was smooth and easy.

The house has everything you need to relax, have fun and cook. The bonus features were the large movie theater, game room, hot tub, kids play area, large deck, outdoor playground, great views of the ski resort and plenty of space to spread out. We would definitely stay here again!

Great house for big group. There are so many amenities in the house to keep you entertain!

  • 5 of 5

Bob Collins was very responsive. He reply to email within 24 hour. I didn't have to call him for anything. The house is secluded on a big property but it only take 5 min to the town center and ski resort parking area. The house is definitely kid friendly lots of play space and games for kids as well as adults. Amenities similar to hotels. If you plan to cook and need big pots and pans there are plenty!
