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.

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.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

I can't believe you have your own disc golf course. Theatre was football friendly and sleeping arrangements were comfortable. My dog loved the doggie door.

Wonderful House!

  • 5 of 5

An amazing home overlooking the beauty that is Colorado. We had our wedding and reception here with about 25 guests, many stayed right at the house. The rooms were all big and comfortable, the game room and home theater were wonderful. There was enough space that everyone had room to be social or to find some quiet corner to read or enjoy the amenities.

Thanks so much. The memories will be wonderful

Wedding family gathring

  • 5 of 5

We loved it!! We rented this property for a family gathering and wedding for a week in October. The house was perfect in every way. It fit our large family with a large up to date kitchen and pantry. The main living/dining room served as our reception area. The rec room and movie room more than suited our needs. The bedrooms were comfortable and well equipped. The view was amazing; from the snow the first day to a sunny 70 degree wedding day. There is plenty of space inside and outside. The mountain top retreat was so much more than we hoped for. If you rent here, you will not be disappointed! Kendrick and Eva Lutz

Exquisite Estates in the Optimal Location!

  • 5 of 5

We had the privilege and pleasure of staying in Bob's Breckenridge homes for three nights for our daughter's wedding in September.

Our stay was perfect in every way!

Bob's homes are absolutely gorgeous and our guests were blown away by all of the amenities which are too many to name, but here's a few:

- Beautiful location - private and secluded, yet close to town

- Luxurious accommodations!

- Attention to every detail! (Bob even helped us arrange shuttle transportation for our guests)

- Incomparable views of the mountains and the ten mile range!

Thank you Bob for allowing us to make memories that will last a lifetime!

We can't wait to see your newest Breckenridge home!

Scenery Overdose

  • 5 of 5

We scheduled our family reunion for late September. When I spoke with Bob about our booking he mentioned something about a great fall foliage week. I forgot about that until we arrived and saw thousands of brightly yellow Aspen trees mixed in with the evergreens. The Big Sky Ranch offers a great view on a bad day but we had a very special week. The one day of light snow on the caps combined with the Aspens turning yellow to orange was outstanding. There were no issues with this outstanding home and everyone was delighted with our stay.

Small things matter: a very detailed hiking manual provided in the home was an invaluable reference to our many hikes including Quandry Peak at 14,265 ft.

Cycling to Vail Pass and around Dillion Lake was also spectacular.

We sighted 3 Moose, a red fox, and many white mountain goats. We all look forward to a return trip.
