About Horace London

We are a modern family who enjoy comfort and luxury.

Horace London purchased this house in 2011

Why Horace London chose Forest Hills

I enjoyed wonderful Breckenridge vacations for years before finally deciding to buy my own home. Unrivalled skiing and snow pursuits as well as blissful balmy summers really transform this charming old gold mining town into an all round great choice for everyone.

What makes this house unique

You will be spoiled for choice while staying at The Bothy. Whether you are feeling energetic or seeking to chill out there are a range of options on your doorstep. A 3 min drive will find you at the ski gondola ready to tackle the infamous '10 mile range', or relax in the hot tub on our South facing deck and marvel at the mountains and ski runs spread out on a platter in front of you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had the best stay at The Bothy! It made our first family vacation here to CO cozy and relaxing. Your home is absolutely beautiful, perfect location and very clean. We REALLY hit the jackpot with your baby crib and high chair accommodations for Peter. Sleeping in a real bed and not a pack 'n play makes such a difference! We look forward to our next trip to beautiful and inviting Breckenridge and The Bothy. Many Thanks!

Awesome place and great location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I came to celebrate our daughters Birthday. Couldn't have picked a better place. Super close to downtown Breck, with an amazing view off of the back. Also, a great hot tub! We will be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you Josh for your review. So glad that your family enjoyed our home. We are very fortunate to be on the north side of Breckenridge, which allows you easy accessibility to the city market store, gondola and other amenities of Summit County without having to spend as much time in weekend traffic. Thank you again for choosing our home, kind regards Horace

Needs air condition or window shades.

  • 2 of 5

Nice home for winter getaway but during our stay in June the house was extremely hot and has no air conditioning. Has beautiful windows for a great view of the mountains but no shades or window coverings made the living and dining area unbearable in afternoon and evening.

Feeling lucky to stay at this beautiful home!

  • 4 of 5

We LOVED our stay at the Bothy! It was a fantastic place for 4 couples to spend time together in pure luxury.

The pictures do a great job of showing the beauty at this home. Our group continued to comment on how lucky we were to enjoy the views. We hiked everyday and wished we had more time to enjoy more trails. There were SO MANY hiking options!

Horace had me pretty nervous because I didn't hear from him in the weeks leading up to our visit. I was worried that I would have 8 people sitting on the Bothy's doorstep but it all turned out in the end. On check in day, he sent me the entry information and my fears washed away. We were so grateful for our time there.

The comments that the sun streaming in through the windows was true. In the evenings, the hot sun heated the dining and living room. However, the inconvenience of the hot sun for an hour or two was way outweighed by the pure beauty.

The only reason I did not give the Bothy 5 Stars is the frustration and fear I had due to the lack of communication. Horace was very responsive at the beginning so I am hoping it was just a fluke.

We would definitely stay at the Bothy again.

Beautiful view...

  • 5 of 5

Very convenient location to the lower peaks. Beautiful view of all Breck peaks. Perfect size for two families of four and a cozy main living area. Only negative is that when the sun is setting the main living area is very bright making it too warm and difficult to see. Almost had to wear sunglasses inside due to the lack of blinds/shades on the west-facing windows.

Beautiful views from a well equipped home.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our stay in Breckenridge. The home has magnificent views of the ski slopes -- a full moon reflecting the sunlight over the mountains was really a sight to see. The property is minutes from the gondola parking lots and the amenities of the town. The property itself has three spacious bedrooms and a two bunkbed bedroom. We enjoyed preparing meals in the kitchen, which has all the proper tools. I recommend it for all travelers.

Owner's Response: Thank you William for the review. I agree the views are spectacular and make dining in the home all that much more enjoyable. We know how important it is to have a well equipped kitchen, for ourselves and our guest. The great thing about the property's location is definitely that we are on the north side of Breckenridge, as to avoid to traffic congestion at the south end of town. Than you again William and we would be more than happy to host you and your family again. Yours in health Horace
