Welcome to our cozy mountain getaway in the heart of Breckenridge. Our condo is the perfect place for a relaxing vacation. After a day of skiing in one of the world's best ski resorts, the 4-O'clock run will take you to the front door of the River Mountain Lodge. Just inside, you can relax at the River Mountain Bar, soak in one of the four hot tubs (both indoor and outdoor), or take a dip in the heated outdoor pool. The Breckenridge Gondola is a short one block away and will take you to the base of the mountain.
We strive to make sure that our condo is always in the best condition, and are constantly doing updates and upgrades! In May of 2013, we added all new stainless steel appliances. In May 2012, we replaced the patio furniture and mattress and in April 2011 we replaced our sleeper sofa and dining table! We visit as often as possible so that we can know first-hand how things look. The condo is very clean, well maintained, extremely functional and comfortable, and in a fabulous location! The location of the condo in the building is off all roads, so it is quiet and private!
A half a block away is the heart of this quaint ski town. There you will find dozens of restaurants, shops, spas, and the best night life in Summit County. Want to ski all of the great Summit County resorts? There is a shuttle service that stops at the River Moutain Lodge that will take you to Keystone, Copper and A-Basin
What sets our condominium apart is the amazing view from the large balcony that extends from the master bedroom to the spacious living room suite. This unit received the highest rating (Gold) from the River Mountain Lodge because of its exceptional décor, view, and additional features. To make your stay more comfortable, this unit has two cable TVs (one of which is a new LCD flat screen), a DVD player, a VHS player, games, puzzles, a wide selection of movies, and an in-unit washer and dryer.
The River Mountain Lodge also features a restaurant, ski/snowboard rentals, movie rentals, exercise facility, a sauna, and garage parking. We hope you enjoy this relaxing cozy mountain condo!
Two families co-own this property. Joe and Lisa with children Andrew (7) and Sarah (5), as well as Allison and her daughter Alyx (2). We all love this property! Joe and Lisa enjoy coming up especially in the winter to ski and hope that they can do that even more once the children learn to ski. Allison and Alyx's favorite time to visit are the fall to see the leaves change, and Summer to walk along the river!
Lisa Hagan and Allison Smookler purchased this condo in 2006
We love the fact that this property is both a condo and a hotel. You have the independence of a condo but also have the benefits of a full-time concierge at the front desk to answer your questions or provide assistance 24/7. We love that! We also loved the location being ski-in and right downtown. No need for a car here!
We loved our stay! The condo exceeded our expectations. The unit was large and comfortable for the two of us. The view of Breckenridge from the windows was amazing. The extra half-bath in the bedroom was an added convenience. The kitchen is a true full kitchen, and we enjoyed a few "home cooked" meals. The fireplace is very warm. The staff was friendly and helpful, and we enjoyed the lobby bar and fireplace. It was very convenient to ski right back to the unit at the end of the day. We loved, which was a short walk from the condo. This was my wife's first visit to Breckenridge, and her first major ski trip, and she loved it. We would highly recommend this delightful condo.
We had a really nice time. We needed to getaway and unplug.
pros: The owners were very helpful. The location was perfect. The free shuttle around summit county was very convenient. Loved the fireplace. Great space to relax and spread out.
cons: The front desk was a bit uninformed and the game / puzzle selection was not as extensive as expected. We had a hard time sleeping due to noise in the hall way.
Overall we would stay here again but with more realistic expectations.
My husband and I booked this getaway over Thanksgiving weekend. I immediately appreciated the owners flexibility in working out a payment plan. They were very quick about responding to my many questions - communication is super quick and very clear with these owners. This was our 2nd time staying at the River Mountain Lodge. We love the location of the Lodge, its proximity to the shuttle as well as the ability to walk into town in less than 5 minutes. There is a very good happy hour daily in the lobby - I would highly recommend stopping by to see the man that I now refer to as "Santa" (stop by and you'll see why!). We played darts and relaxed there several evenings during our stay.
The condo was very comfortable and well-furnished. There is an enormous deck area, and I wish we would have been able to take advantage of it. I can imagine sitting out there in the summer with some snacks and drinks would be quite lovely. The condo has 3 different window/sliding doors and it's easy to hear the pleasant roar of the river at any time. It IS located close to the road, however - so you will also hear cars/trucks going by. However, this didn't bother us too much. The sound of the river is pretty strong.
A couple of notes on items that may need a change. The bed is AMAZING - very, very comfortable, but it is also really HOT. I am a cold person by nature, and I can almost never get warm enough. This bed really REALLY holds the heat. I think it may have something to do with the down comforter that they have underneath the mattress pad. I cannot stress this enough - if you are a person who is REALLY COLD all of the time, as I am - you will be surprised to wake up sweating. Just a thought to maybe remove that comforter from under the mattresss pad - the mattress is plenty comfortable without it. There is a sink in the bedroom, which was a really nice touch for getting water in the middle of the night.
In the living room there is a really comfortable couch, and then a rocking chair. I would recommend putting in either a recliner or a small couch in the spot of the rocking chair. The couch IS nice, but it really is not enough room for 2 adults to stretch out on.
The kitchen was well equipped. It had nearly everything we needed or could hope to need. It was very clean, spacious and furnished with nice new applicances.
The bathroom is spacious and spotless - in fact the whole condo sparkles. Fresh paint made it feel sunny and bright!
Location was very nice and close to everything. Parking Garage could use some improvements. Unless you are driving a small compact car, the parking situation is not good.
The Condo is a nice, clean, cozy condo. The bathroom door is a bit cumbersome. It is a slider door, and does not slide very easily making it difficult for a little privacy.
We did enjoy our stay, and would probably stay there again, as mentioned it is a ideal location for skiing, and visiting the town.
We felt like we got lucky with this rental, there are so many good things to say, but i'll keep it to a few key points:
1. Location - 1 block from downtown Breck, Free Bus right across the street, Gondola 2 blocks away
2. Ease - the owners gave us clear instructions and the staff at the River Mountain Lodge were very friendly and helpful, from getting to the lodge, to finding the hot tub, everything was easy!
3. Comfort - the condo was cozy and had all the things a home would have, including an in-unit washer and dryer.
We highly recommend this property if you are looking for a great location and an easy-going, comfortable stay.
I almost don't want to review this property, because it is so perfect. I don't want to share this awesome place with anyone! On the other hand, I want the owners to keep renting it out, so I will try to help them out. The building is located literally in the middle of everything. You truly don't have to drive anywhere while you are in Breckenridge. We only moved our car because we needed to pick up a heavy package at the grocery store.
The unit itself is wheelchair accessible, which means it is a rather large space. Enormous bathroom, sliding doors to the bedroom and bath, extra sink in the bedroom, large kitchen and the deck is HUGE. Most of the decks in the building are half the size of this unit's! Facing the river, you can hear the soft sounds tinkling outside, and will put you to sleep.
Unlike other rental condos, there is no food in the kitchen, no olive oil, no spices, no coffee filters. Not a big deal, you can plan accordingly and City Market is about 2 blocks away. They sell almost anything you need.
I love this condo, and we will stay here whenever we are up in Breck. Thanks for such a great place to stay! Everything everyone else says in their reviews is true!
