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.

Awesome property all around!

  • 5 of 5

We were traveling to Breckenridge with 5 families, totaling 18 people. The house exceeded expectations all the way around. The multiple levels makes the house feel even bigger than it already is! We had some minor issues with the washing machine and utilizing the HVAC system. (Bob was contacted via cell phone, immediately answered and helped resolve the issues promptly). The pictures cannot do the view justice from this house, every morning was absolutely breathtaking. The hot tub was great every day after the slopes, with state of the art jets. I would definitely stay here again on a return trip to Breck!

Truly Stunning Views and So Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

To preface, I spent months researching and creating spreadsheet even, to get THE perfect place for a big family vacation. THIS house was it and 100% worth it. If youre reading this and have the slightest interest in renting here, just do it. There will be no regrets as you pull up to this amazing home, promise!

We cannot say enough good things about this place. Bob is an amazing host and truly cares about his properties, you can see that in the way this home is up-kept. We filled the house to the 20 capacity and even had a few local friends stop by for dinner one night and we had no issues with space! Everyone had a bed with some still open, everyone had a spot to relax in the house and partake in group gatherings (the poker table was a hit!) or to sneak off and read (which there are plenty of good books in the house too!).

The home was so clean and well stocked with appliances, dishes, bake-ware, cookware, etc.... We had no issues cooking each morning and making giant dinners each night and then just ran the dishwasher for the next meal! There was always hot water for showers or tubs (OH my were the Jacuzzi tubs in the bathrooms NICE). We had 2 coffee pots, one died on us and within 15minutes Bob had a new one up at the house!

The theater room kept the guys entertained while us women went downtown (which is under 10minutes drive from the house) and it entertained the kids while us adults played pool, Foosball, and poker!

Best part, the views. Not one picture on here does this home true justice in just how gorgeous the views are from everywhere and every room. We all enjoyed the porches and various seating areas indoors and out and throughout the week there was a stunning view no matter where you were.

Again, we could write a review for days on all the things we were able to do in this spacious house. Even if you never ventured downtown or to the lake or slopes, this house is a vacation in itself.

Owner's Response: Thanks Kristina! - I know you'll read this response- we loved having you. You put so much in to planning your vacation, we just wanted everything to be perfect. When the coffee maker gave out it gave me the perfect opportunity to fix it! We did start the free local shuttle and that service is a HIT! Saves on driving and parking fees. Drops you right at the lifts or anywhere in town:) Bob

Even better in person!

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful, spacious, and great for entertaining. The views are incredible. Bob was helpful and willing to provide information and guidance when we were hit with a whole lot of snow. Unfortunately, the hot tub was not hooked up properly so we were unable to use it. It is however brand new so the next guests should be able to enjoy! Thank you for a wonderful trip, our friends were quite impressed!

Owner's Response: Thanks Bridget! :) I'm so glad you had a great vacation. We got the free in town shuttle operational- super convenient transportation to the lifts and downtown. :) Yes this group of friends got lucky with over four feet of snow before and during their stay. We were inundated- It was awesome! Yes a brand new, top of the line, hot tub (private, of course) was installed and is 100% ready for relaxation :) You are welcome back anytime! Bob

Vacation rental Thanksgiving week 2016

  • 5 of 5

Bob, thanks for allowing us to enjoy a fabulous week in the Colorado Mountains. The house was gorgeous and the views unbelievable. The VRBO description was spot on and obviously you spend a great deal of time paying attention to the small details of your vacation rental. I've rented many luxury rentals over the years and yours is at the top of my list. The couple of days of snow we experienced made for picture perfect early season skiing and fun for all. We thoroughly enjoyed a Thanksgiving celebration, as everything you could need to cook for a large crowd was available and ready. We were all sorry to see the week come to an end. Hope we get a chance to share similar experiences in the future.

Spacious Relaxation

  • 4 of 5

Wow! The views were great! There were 4 generations of family gathered here. The house is large enough that we weren't on top of each other and there was lots to keep young children entertained.The kitchen has just about anything you need to feed the masses. I would stay here again.
