Mountain Thunder Lodge is the #1 Rated Place to Stay in Breckenridge and we are thrilled to share our 'mountain hideaway' with you!


Directly on the Skyway Skiway ski run. Across the street from the BRECK CONNECT Gondola.


The Building:

Welcome to the Multiple Award Winning Mountain Thunder Lodge! A Flagship Property in Breckenridge!

Just two blocks to scenic Main Street, easily accessible by foot, unlimited shopping, restaurants, galleries, museums, ski/board/bike rentals, and many other unique shops.

This beautifully appointed and updated 1 bedroom is conveniently located in the main building of Mountain Thunder Lodge. This means skiing into the property is a breeze and does not require any additional walking to another building further out. Located DIRECTLY on the ski run just before the gondola! There are hot tubs, a fitness room, free laundry facilities, out door grill and ski lockers on the ground floor. A beautiful pool, additional hot tubs, a children's play area (summer) a second fitness room are all located in the building next door.

The Lodge provides a complimentary shuttle anywhere in town whether is to just across the street to the gondola in the morning and they can also pick you up or take you anywhere in town.

As our guest at the lodge, you also have access to the amenities at their sister property, One Ski Hill Place at the base of Peak 8. Kids will LOVE the indoor bowling alley! You also have access also to the aquatics center, billiards room and media center and other great features.

Why Stay With Us?

We LOVE Breckenridge and have spent many summers and winters enjoying all the wonderful activities it has to offer. We've been opening our 'mountain hideaways' to guests for several years. Unlike hotels and management companies who often employ seasonal workers that are not as familiar with the town, with us you will receive a virtual packet with suggestions for activities, money saving discounts, restaurants and more....all from experienced owners. Our 12 and 7 year olds have been skiing since they were in diapers so as mom, I'm happy give you plenty of child friendly advice!

Additionally, keep in mind there can be a disparity among different units in terms of quality, upkeep and views. When renting from hotels and management companies you will never know what quality of unit you are receiving even if you put in a special request. You can relax knowing that you will be staying in an upscale condo with beautiful views and a great location in town.

We have partnered with a local management company in case of emergencies and they are available 24/7.

Providing you with a great experience and trip is my passion and am always available to answer any questions!

About Tanya Kogan

Your owners are Jim, Tanya and our 2 sons, 11 and 6. We've lived abroad in both New Zealand and Latvia and love to travel. Some of the best memories we've had are through these experiences which is why we love to come to Breckenridge. We love the outdoors as does our 11 year old who is probably the only one in his class that knows that the best gondolas and chairlifts are made in Switzerland! We are happy to share our knowledge of the town and answer any questions you may have to make your stay with us the best it can be.

Why Tanya Kogan chose Breckenridge Area

There's a saying in Texas, 'I wasn't born here but I got here as fast as I could.' Well, we feel the same way about Colorado. We would find ourselves coming back to Colorado year after year and Breckenridge always seemed to top our list. It has a little bit of everything one looks for in a mountain destination. Historical charm, great mountains and views, amazing restaurants and shopping, tons of activities for not only adults but kids too. Not to mention easier accessibility from both Denver and Colorado Springs, with less major passes to overcome than with Vail. It was the logical choice for us to choose a place where we could create family memories during the four beautiful seasons Breckenridge has to offer and we are delighted to be able to share our mountain hideaway with you too.

Comfortable and clean!

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

I would recommend staying here! This unit is very much as described; very clean and comfortable. We loved the proximity to Main St and the ability to ski-in. As we are beyond our years of schlepping gear up and down stairs, we absolutely took advantage of the free shuttle to the gondola and the base of Peak 9. The rental staff was very prompt and helpful with our requests/questions. There was one snafu with the room key card v hot tub access, but it was resolved very quickly. Be sure not to have the Mountain Thunder desk associates attempt to reprogram your key card!

Another great stay in a beautiful winter wonderland

  • 5 of 5

This is my favorite place to stay in Breck - I've been to this condo four times (twice in the summer and twice in the winter) and it is the best. It's cozy and comfortable enough for cocooning in the winter and close enough to downtown to enjoy all it has to offer. And the rental staff is extremely accommodating and was able to help us with a last-minute change in plans. Highly recommended!

Home Sweet Home...in Breckenridge

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

This is one of the most beautiful condos in Breckenridge. We come to Breckenridge often, and have stayed at many places. We've stayed here several times, and would come back again in a heartbeat. The owners are extremely accommodating and will respond quickly to any questions or concerns. The condo is centrally located just a few walking blocks from Main Street. In fact, we walked everywhere and only took the car out once to go to the market (which is also walking distance, but we got lazy.) The condo is spacious, and the complex was very quiet. The employees at the front desk were also very helpful. They assisted us in printing our boarding passes prior to flying home. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone visiting Breckenridge. We loved this place!

wonderful apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

The apartment provides everything you need and more for your stay in Breckenridge. It is well taken care of and everybody at the property is very nice and accommodating. We travelled with a baby and loved that fact that we had a nice big living area where the little want to cruise around. The kitchen was fully equipped and the bathroom nice and new. The common area was nicely set and there is a whirlpool and a grill area. The only thing that needs improving is the community gas grill. It is not working properly and either needs to be fixed or replaced. All in all it is a great place that we plan to come back to!

Great Condos

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We had a great experience with both of the condos where we stayed in Breckenridge. The condo at Mountain Thunder Lodge was not available for the full 11 days we were to be there, so the owners offered another place up the mountain at One Ski Hill for the last few days at the same price as MTL. They could not have been more accommodating and easy to work with. Both of the condos were in great condition....comfy beds, nice shower, everything you would need to cook in. We will definitely contact them again for our next trip to Breckenridge!

Not an ideal Summer season rental

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

I was inclined to give this property a three-star rating, however, I'd like to think staying in this unit would be much different during the winter/ski season. We have stayed in Summit county lodging properties for 20+ years, so have seen and experienced many different properties ranging from hotel rooms to condos to entire houses. While this condo was well furnished with the exception of the kitchen, its location within the main building made it a miserable stay during the summer. The windows on the rear overlook the main circular entrance of Mountain Thunder Lodge which means there are cars and people coming, going, talking loudly at all hours. Because we were renting during July and, like most lodging in Summit county, the unit doesn't have AC and therefore you must open your windows at night. The windows were casement (side-opening) with pull up blinds; in order to get any air flow you had to raise the blind which allowed in a great deal of light due to the street lamps surrounding the Lodge entrance.

The kitchen was lacking in our experienced opinion. In one of the drawers was an inventory list dated Aug 2003, but it was clear that a review of missing items had not been done in some time. For example, out of the (6) iced tea glasses, there was only one; another type of glass had 4 of 6. There were only (2) smaller spoons in the flatware drawer so had to use the large-size spoons. Additionally, there were no flat baking sheets such as a cookie sheet, pizza pan, not even the broiler pan which was indicated on the inventory sheet. There were no basic kitchen necessities such as salt and pepper shakers. The coffee maker has to be the least expensive you can purchase as it had no ability to set a timer to brew coffee, nor an auto-shutoff which actually could be a danger were it to be left on accidentally.

I realize this review sounds harsh, but because we depend heavily on the reviews of prior renters we would want to be honestly informed. As stated, if the owners were to stock the kitchen more thoroughly and you were renting during a season where you could keep windows and blinds closed, this is a very nice rental unit and I could make a recommendation.

Owner's Response: I appreciate you taking the time to voice your concerns regarding your recent stay. Please let me address them. Kitchen: Our management company does do periodic inventory checks to take into account the random items that either get broken or misplaced. When this unit is rented in conjunction with another one across the hall people also tend to “share” items for group dinners etc. and they inadvertently get left behind or placed in another unit. I am sorry there were some items missing that should have been there. The management company informed me that they were all updated the same day they were told of what was missing. The coffee maker is a basic brand typical of most in the units. We have had a maker in our other unit and guests would find it confusing as every brand is different in its programming. The unit also has a French coffee press which is what my husband tends to use. Windows: As you mentioned, most complexes do not have AC as the temperatures drop down at night (although our condo at One Ski Hill Place does). I am sorry the windows did not work for you. They are an advanced, highly efficient European design that one commonly sees throughout the Alps. Activity: Breckenridge is very popular in the summer and July is definitely the busiest month of the warm season. Typically the resort tends to be quieter than other complexes as it is smaller, more intimate and family friendly, so it was a shame it was noisier than it typically would be. I hope overall you enjoyed your time up in Breckenridge. Happy Travels, Tanya
