Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 3 Bath, Hot Tub, BBQ, Fire Pit, Mountain Views, Free Shuttle to Town

This spacious mountain home features a clean, bright, and inviting atmosphere; and is perfect for several families. It has a fully equipped, and modern kitchen with all new appliances in 2016, and an outside barbecue grill for preparing meals for large groups. The heated garage with 12 boot warmers, is ideal for storing skis, boots, poles, snowboards, and mountain bikes overnight. It also features a new Foosball table, a new bar, puzzles, games, and sports equipment.

We make every effort to accommodate early check-ins and late check-outs (subject to availability); and will confirm either within 24 hours of arrival and 24 hours of departure; upon request.

The outdoor hot tub on the upper deck, overlooks a quiet meadow, and allows for amazing evening experiences under the stars; in this quiet neighborhood. The homes in the area are privately owned and are rarely rented or occupied, except over major holiday periods. New outdoor furniture in 2016, as well as an outside gas fire pit complete the outdoor amenities.

Two separate living room areas, each with their own fireplaces and flat screen TV’s allow for large groups to spread out. All three bedrooms and all three bathrooms are layed out for maximum efficiency. The master bedroom has one king bed with a private bath. The second bedroom has a queen bed with a single trundle pullout. The third bedroom has a queen bed with another single trundle pullout. There is a pullout sofa bed in the TV entertainment room; which also features a fireplace. There is another pullout sofa bed in the main living room; which features a fireplace.

The free, town operated, shuttle bus service runs every 15 minutes within 100 yards of the Lodge; and allows guests to come and go all day long on their own schedule. Digital keyless entry allows for more convenience.

It is not unusual to see moose, bear, fox, deer, and raccoons; right outside the door or from the deck. Guests can easily make day trips to Vail, Aspen, Keystone, Beaver Creek, Arapahoe Basin, Loveland, Steamboat Springs, Crested Butte, and Copper Mountain; but there is so much terrain and variety at Breckenridge, Ski Area, that most guests do not wander too far.

Comcast Xfinity WiFi Internet, new in 2016, with speeds of up to 100Mbps provide exceptional internet speeds for large groups, throughout the lodge; and allow for Netflix, Amazon, and Apple TV high speed downloads.

Smart-Eco thermostats by Nest, manage temperature zones individually; while integrated smoke and CO2 detectors by Nest provide for added safety.

About Scott McMullen

We have been snowboarding in Colorado at Vail, Aspen, Keystone, and Breckenridge since 2008; and have purchase our own home after enjoying many winter and summer vacations in the friendly and accessible town of Breckenridge; which has a very active, year round social community.

Scott McMullen purchased this lodge in 2015

Why Scott McMullen chose Breckenridge Area

This property is in an ideal location with great mountain sunrise views and sits atop a secluded meadow and pond. It gives our friends, family, and guests unique and easy access to our favorite areas of the Breckenridge Ski Resort at Peaks 6, 7, and 8; while allowing us to snowboard and ski at other areas nearby on our annual Epic Pass. It also allows us easy and reliable Breck Free Ride Bus service into town during the day and in the evenings, without having to take our own car.

What makes this lodge unique

This home is close to the mountain for winter or summer activities, yet close enough to town to walk. It is also within a two minute walk to the free shuttle service; yet it is situated on a private road with secluded views.

The historic gold mining town of Breckenridge was incorporated in 1859; and the quaint and fun little town is now home to art exhibitions, a summer concert series, ski and snowboarding competitions, an international winter ice sculpting competition; and dozens of other year round exhibitions and activities.

Mountain Meadow Lodge has ski in access from the Peak 8 Four O'Clock Run and ski out access on the same run to the Snowflake Chairlift which takes you to the top of the novice area at Peak 8; where you can choose between five chairlifts and the Gondola to move you around the mountain quickly. The Lodge is also within a two minute walk to the Ski Hill Road bus stop at the Nordic Ski and Snowshoe Center; with bus service that runs every 15 minutes for the 2 minute ride to the base of Peak 8, or the 2 minute ride to the base of Peak 7, or the 5 minute ride into the town of Breckenridge.

Although Breckenridge is famous for its incredible ski season which runs from November to April; the Summit County area is also an all year playground for mountain biking, rafting, zip lining, golf, hiking, and even summer dogsledding. Snowboarding at Arapahoe Basin in bikinis and outrageous costumes takes place in July and is more about drinking and live bands than anything else.

Gold mining towns of Leadville and Steamboat Springs, are easy day trips and the historic Durango & Silverton Railway trip is an unforgettable summer experience. White water rafting at Buena Vista is less than a two hour drive from "Breck" as it is known by the locals. Mountain Meadow Lodge is the perfect location from which to launch your countless Summit County adventures.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Scott -



We have arrived. A few hours late due to the winter storms but we are happy to have so much snow! Skiing has been fantastic and beautiful! The house is gorgeous and perfect for our family. We've figured out the FreeRide system and appreciate the tip of leaving our skis and boots at BreckSports. So easy! The kids had a fantastic day at ski school yesterday. Very professional and fun. We must also say thank you to Colorado Express, great recommendation. The key pad is a great idea. Getting keys or key card from another location at 1:45 am would not have been ideal after all our delays! Thanks again and we are thoroughly enjoying our stay!



We will put garbage out this am. Thanks for the reminder and great organization in the house! Very easy to figure everything out.



Thanks again,

Ben & Michelle



Ps the Christmas tress is beautiful! The kids were thrilled!

Beautiful house very clean and lots of wildlife

  • 4 of 5

We saw a moose in the backyard within 10 minutes of checking in. Very good setup with two separate living quarters. Would be great for two families or a larger group. Has every kitchen utensil you could ask for. Grill on the deck is great and a gas fire pit on the deck is very nice to have also. The owner is very nice to work with as the hot tub went down and he had it repaired and operational within hours. Overall the place is great. The free bus is less than a 5 minute walk and if you're feeling lazy you can call ski Uber for $16 door to slopes. You can't go wrong with this property and if your looking forward to seeing wildlife this is the best place for that.

The house is the perfect place to get away and relax. It is equipped with absolutely everything.

  • 5 of 5

This was my first stay in Breckenridge and at the Mountain Meadow. Although nobody is there to show you around, everything is perfectly labeled, they provided a book for activities and town information. The house is secluded and beautiful. The rooms are very spacious were four can easily sleep with comfort. The kitchen is equipped with everything we needed, they thought of everything! As well as an impressive rack of spices. The patio has an amazing view of a small pond and trees, we saw a Moose that got really close, it was so cool!. There are more animals to see, but just sitting down with a glass of wine to take in the scenery is enough. The house is perfectly located not in town but a very nice walking distance and also the towns free ride is available in the corner of the street. I had the fortune to spend some time with Scott and Karla, they made me feel great about staying at their home, I will for sure come back for ski season. Thank you both for your generosity.

Great house in a good location.

  • 4 of 5

Really lovely property in a nice quiet location close to the slopes and a 5/10 minute drive into town. Really well fitted out house with ski and boot storage. Ski out involves a 5/10 minute uphill walk but is definitely better than drive/park/gondola alternative. Ski in is dependent on conditions. Otherwise it's a 10 minute walk down a road. Again preferable to alternatives. Would definitely rent this property again.

Great place, even greater owner for the best vacation ever.

  • 5 of 5

We booked the Mountain meadow lodge for ten days hoping to catch some much needed rest and witness the turning of the leaves as Co welcomed the fall season... Our only regret was to not have booked a longer stay.

The owners made the process very easy and we felt welcomed even before we stepped foot into the Meadow lodge.

The organization is impeccable, the house is easy to settle into and the "smart house" works for everyone from age 4 to "no limit".

We loved every aspect of our stay at the house, the lodge is incredible and the location is phenomenal, we parked the car and were able to enjoy all kinds of hikes directly from house, a short walk (literally 3 minutes) to the bus stop and the options open up, either up to catch the Gondolas or down for a short ride to the town center.

Good weather and you will find yourself enjoying a bbq and a soak in the hot tub, bad weather and the entertainment center at the house is there for an evening of Television or a fun time with all the toys and games provided by the owners... you love nature, just grab your coffee in the morning and wait for the Moose to come along, tired of the Moose? just wait a little longer and the white tail fox will come to pay his respects...

We loved it, we recommend it, we will return...

Great stay over the 4th of July

  • 5 of 5

Perfect house for my family's stay over the 4th of July week in Breckenridge. House was very well stocked and is more impressive than the pictures show. Scott was a great host frequently checking in and addressing small issues. Great location as you feel deep in the woods but its only a nice 20 minute walk down to town or 5 minute drive. A ton of great extras like a wildlife alert that lets you know when the moose are out back. Our favorite part was the huge deck space with the hot tub, firepit, and plenty of seating for the entire family. We'll definitely be back!
