Kathy and I had looked at many resorts such as Snowmass, Steamboat, Copper and others before deciding to purchase in Breckenridge. We loved the feel of a real town and the short commute from Denver Airport. Unlike many homes we have upgraded it so that it feels like a upscale home in the Mountains. If you like the Ritz or Hyatt, you will love Bear Haven. A short 75 yard walk puts you at trail for Lower Lehman which goes by ski school and directly to the Quicksilver lift. In the Summer, you have dozens of beautiful hikes filled with wild flowers within a few short miles. If you have a non-skier with you, they have a lot of fun things to do in the area. We hope that you are our guest!!
Bill Handley purchased this house in 1997
Bear Haven is located in Warriors Mark West which is a ski in/out neighborhood full of million dollar homes nestled in a forest of lodge pole pines with views of the Breckenridge Ski ara and Mount Baldy. Winter or Summer, Bear Haven is a beautiful and fun place to vacation at.
A luxury, upscale home. New Kitchen, baths and a total renovation. The Bear and Mountain theme really puts you in a vacation mode. But if you have to work, there is WiFi access with a great stereo to listen while you work.
The layout of this house is wonderful. The great room in front is cozy and the gas stove makes it toasty. Each one of the bedrooms is a master with large comfortable beds and privacy for all. The kitchen is beautiful with its new hickory cabinets and stainless appliances. Easy to cook and clean up. We loved the ski in/ski out feature as we could get to Peak 9 easily, except for one day when there was deep powder and we were the first ones in the morning. Love the hot tub for soaking and the birds at the bird feeders. Thanks Bill and Kathy for sharing your lovely home!
The house was well appointed as described. The owner went well above my expectations on providing information about the house, town, and ski area. We had no negative issues with the house. I would rent this house again without any second thoughts.
The owner of this property is the most thorough, honest, and responsive owner I have ever rented from. The property was exactly as described. I would definitely rent here again.
We had lovely weather and a lovely condo for fall adventure. The kitchen was fully equipped for my gourmet chef husband, and the place was beautifully decorated and very clean. We would definitely rent this place again!
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!
My family recently stayed at Bear Haven. What a wonderful and beautiful place to start and end our days! We all especially loved the hot tub. It was the perfect place to relax after whitewater rafting, hiking in the mountains, or just trekking around Breckenridge.
Bear Haven had everything we needed; the kitchen was well-stocked, the washer and dryer were very useful, and the furnishings and décor were beautiful. As a previous reviewer stated, it truly is a little slice of heaven!
I also appreciated the communication with Bill before, during, and after our stay. He called a few weeks before we checked in to see what questions we had. Once we arrived, he called to make sure we had everything we needed and to answer any questions we had. He also followed up after our stay to ensure we had a good time.
If we ever make it back to Breckenridge for vacation again, we will certainly check in to staying at Bear Haven. We loved our “Colorado Vacation Home” and are so glad we chose to stay at Bear Haven!
