This review may have too many superlatives, because we can only use those in describing the High Country Lodge. This was well beyond our expectations. Our family reunion included folks from 4 months to 69 years, and the Lodge was the perfect setting to meet the needs of everyone. The views from the Lodge were spectacular. It felt as though we were completely alone in the mountains. There are great hiking trails that go straight from the cabin into magnificent scenery.
The Lodge was beautifully and tastefully furnished with ample room for everyone. The large living room was just off the kitchen area, so our group fit very well in that space, and we enjoyed being able to be together. When someone wanted to get away, there were other beautiful sitting areas off the bedrooms that provided cozy spaces for reading, napping, and just contemplating the scenery. And, there was a gorgeously furnished deck outside.
The Lodge was thoughtfully furnished with many, many extras such as games for all ages, toys for the younger children, and a wide assortment of excellent reading material. The large game room was a great place for the children. It included a large TV.
The kitchen included two large refrigerators and two dishwashers. We found all utensils and serving pieces we needed. Everything worked well. The large kitchen table held most of our group, and there was additional seating available. We were also able to play cards and games on the tables.
One of the highlights of this beautiful lodge were the camp fires held in a well built fire pit with ample seating. We sang songs, roasted marshmallows and made s'mores, and greatly enjoyed the view back up to the lodge from there.
Patrick and Petra helped fill any need we had throughout the visit. They are delightful, and we so enjoyed getting to know them. The catered meals we had were spectacular. We could not have asked for better food,service and convenience. What a pleasure! We even added a fourth night of catered meals to allow us to relax in the late afternoon and evening. One night we had our meal outdoors on the huge deck. It was absolutely delightful.
We would highly recommend High Country Lodge to anyone looking for a pleasingly comfortable, tasteful place for a reunion or celebration. Our group came from Hawaii, Virginia, North Carolina, California, and Colorado. Our roots are in Colorado, and we love Breckenridge, especially High Country Lodge.
