We had been looking for a great place to meet for a summer vacation now that our kids live in different parts of the country. We are from Kansas City, our son goes to college and has a summer internship in Tulsa, and our daughter lives in Washington DC. We also invited her boyfriend. He had never been to Colorado so we focused there and since we had visited Breckenridge before and loved it, we began searching for a place for us all to stay. There are so many places to pick from but Bearhaven stood out because of the pictures, reviews, size, and price.
We booked it and Bill provided us with all sorts of information to enhance our trip. When we arrived, everyone loved it as they picked their rooms. It isn't huge but it has plenty of room for 5 with three bedrooms and three bathrooms, it is decorated beutifully and the kitchen is great. Everyone was very comfortable and soon a puzzle was covering the oversize dinner table. Board games were played in the living room late into the night and the grill and kitchen made dinner at home fun and easy. It has a really nice enclosed hot tub but we didn't use it much because we were off doing other things.
Bearhaven is half of a really nice mountain duplex in a wooded neighborhood of amazing homes. The area is very quiet save for the birds and wind in the trees. The houses are close to each other yet, other than saying hi in the driveway, we never heard other folks. Bearhaven is only a couple minutes walk from the Burro Trail which makes for a nice 20 or so minute walk to town or, head the other way as I did each morning while the rest of the family slept in, and you are walking up an incline along a gurgling stream then into secluded woods. I loved it! If you prefer to drive, the condo is just over five minutes from town.
We hiked, watched the last two World Cup games at Eric's and Ollie's respectively (those are sports bar-type place in town), took the gondola and lift as high as we could go, shopped (too much), dodged rain at The Crowne (cool quirky coffee joint), and ate at a couple of the local places but we all seemed to prefer hanging out at Bearhaven playing games, doing the puzzle, reading, or just hanging out. Great place! Great trip!
