About the property

Mountain View, 4 Bedroom+Loft, 4 1/2 Bath W/ Game Room

Starwood at Quandary is conveniently located in the serene neighborhood of Timber Creek Estates. Just 8 minutes (5 miles) from downtown Breckenridge, this quiet, paved neighborhood is perfect for a morning walk to take in the stunning mountain views!

Upon entering the 3,200 sqf luxury duplex home, you will find the spruce framed view of 14,265' Mt. Quandary welcoming you 'home' to Colorado!

The vaulted ceiling great room features wood floors and a gas fireplace creating a cozy setting for relaxing and watching tv, reading a good book or watching the snow fall on a wintery day out on the deck which hosts the hot tub, gas grill and patio furniture during the summer months. Having an open concept the main floor includes a dining area and a bar as well as a granite counter kitchen with stainless steel/electric appliances all conveniently together for family enjoyment.

In addition to the main floor great room is the downstairs game room (man cave) which features a pool table, Ms. Pacman machine, poker/card table, dart board, popcorn machine, cable tv, stereo and a full wet bar.

The designer furnished home features two master bedrooms (tv's in both) - one on the main floor (five piece bath with jetted tub) and one on the ground floor (with a steam/sauna shower with seating up to 4 people).

The upstairs loft (with queen pullout) offers a tv/DVD and is set up for wii. Both upstairs bedrooms feature a queen bed with en suite full baths. One additional half bath is located on the main floor.

The heated garage has parking for one car and a 'changing area' that includes dryers for 10 pair of boots or gloves. There is parking for up to four additional cars on the paved driveway.

About Brenn Dunphy

Welcome to Starwood at Quandry's website. We're happy you're checking us out! We know you'll find our Colorado home everything you want it to be plus more. Our family has been vacationing in Colorado for over 20 years. Our dreams have finally been realized......owning our own home in beautiful Colorado! Here's a little information about us - Brenn & Bobett Dunphy. Brenn operates our family farm in Illinois and Bobett works for the USDA. We like our work in illinois but love our play in Colorado! Whether its hitting the slopes after harvest is over or enjoying the beautiful mountain passes on our Harley after crops are planted, our favorite place to be is at home in Colorado. We, along with our adult kids Bethany and Brennan, look forward to lots of fun times in the years ahead at Starwood.

Brenn Dunphy purchased this house in 2011

Why Brenn Dunphy chose Blue River

After months with our realtor looking at plenty of homes, we took out first tour at the house located at 290 Whispering Pines. It was love at first site!! Living in the country in IL, we knew we wanted a quiet neighborhood outside of town and wanted paved roads because of our Harley. A quick 8 minutes gets you to the gondola so we felt the location was perfect. We thought it was a great asset that each bedroom has its own full bathroom and two of the bedrooms have master baths. After a long day of skiing, a hot tub is a must and ours is on our deck looking out over our fully matured pines in our secluded back yard. The view of a starry night in Colorado is awesome from the hot tub. The game room/bar (a/k/a man cave according to Brenn) on the lower level was just the 'cherry on top'. Whether its a game of pool, playing the pacman machine or a game of cards at the poker table, it makes for a great family night, especially when the popcorn machine is used. Oh yeah, in case you're wondering why we named our home 'Starwood at Quandary', one of Brenn's favorite song writers was John Denver and in one of his songs he sings about his Colorado home called 'Starwood in Aspen'. With the gorgeous view our great room offers of Mt. Quandary, hence the name 'Starwood at Quandary' our 'sweet Rocky Mountain Paradise'.

What makes this house unique

Paved roads. 8 minute drive to downtown Breck. Quiet neighborhood. All bedrooms have en suite bathrooms.

Amazing Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this home! What a beautiful house! Very nicely decorated and wonderful amenities. The kitchen was stocked with everything you need to cook a nice meal. The hot tub was clean and has a nice view. The downstairs game room was a lot of fun! We will definitely rent this house again! Owners were very responsive and kind.

Only negatives were the master bed and downstairs bed were uncomfortable. With new mattresses, this would be the PERFECT home!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and staying with us. We would love having you back! The mattresses are firm (which we like). Most people have trouble sleeping at high altitude (including us) if they are not used to it. We are at 10,300 ft.

Beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

We had an awesome stay for Spring Break. The house is big enough for everyone to have their space. The kids loved the game room. The only thing that was a little strange was all the camera's. You kind of feel like you are under surveillance the whole time. Wasn't a big deal for us but might be an issue for others that might feel their privacy is being violated. Would just maybe suggest putting that disclosure in the rental agreement so renter's are aware. Highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay in Breckenridge and our home. We are sorry if you felt the cameras on the outside of the house and in the garage were intrusive. There are only three cameras and they are for viewing the driveway and deck to see if the snow has been or needs to be plowed or shoveled and to see if any damage from storms or wind have occurred. The camera inside the heated garage is to see if the garage door is left open as I have a monitor on the door to alert me. This is a problem in rental properties with guests accidentally leaving the door open. Other than the garage there are no cameras inside or have any view of the inside of the home. We manage our rental home ourselves from Illinois so the cameras help us to ensure that our property is being maintained properly.

Great stay meeting all of our needs!

  • 5 of 5

Our group had a great stay in Breck at this home. The hot tub is big and clean and provides a great relief at the end of a snowboarding day! The house was clean, and the kitchen is big and very well cared for. It’s a great layout with the bedrooms all having their own bathrooms as well, takes pressure off of guests and lets everybody be comfortable. About a 10-15 minute quick drive to the resort and dtown breck. Thank you!

Beautiful with well stocked kitchen

  • 5 of 5

The property has amazing views out every window. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you could possibly want/need. That said, the City Market is on the opposite side of town, so plan to pick up everything you need in one trip. We appreciated the heated garage space as well as the boot dryer. We brought up 5 college girls who wouldn't use the hot tub after they discovered the exterior camera. Also, while the views were stunning, we would have really appreciated curtains or blinds on the master bedroom and downstairs windows. As much as we enjoyed the atmosphere, we slept lousy.
