I built this magnificent home five years ago to enjoy with family and friends. Breckenridge is arguable the best ski town in Colorado and offers year-around activities...something for everyone. I own and manage several homes and take pride in offering guests a well maintained home with attention to details. I personally manage this property and can make a rental arrangement that work for each of us. Feel free to call anytime for information about my home or Breckenridge.
Steven Dove purchased this house in 2008
Our guests love staying at Highlands Retreat. A number of guests return each year and some have stayed 4 times...IT's THE BEST
Our home has a unique floorplan that allows guests lots of room to enjoy being together or simply get away from the rest of the family (there is a reason we don't live next door to our family members...ha ha). The bridge to the rooms over the garage is often talked about and fun for the kids. Additionally, the courtyard has a snowmelt system which is great during the winter months to relax on the warmer/sunny days.
We rented this wonderful home for my wife's 40th birthday. We had people come from out of town, and everyone had an amazing time. The home is gorgeous, like a 5 star resort. The owner was friendly and accommodative to our needs. The heated courtyard meant no shoveling during our 4 days there, even though it snowed the whole time. The driveway was long and turned out to be a perfect sledding hill for the kids, and adults. I searched far and wide for a home that was both large, beautiful, and was open to a pet with deposit. The home was a 5 minute drive to town, and was on a large lot. Most of the pet friendly homes were nowhere near as nice as this. We hope we can stay there again soon!
Our group has used this house for the past 3 years for a large get together every December. It's awesome! Most of us live in Denver but there are several out of towners who visit each year. Any newcomer is blown away by this house! It's fully furnished with everything that you'll need. I've rented many houses that say they are fully furnished but you often end up needing to bring reinforecments- especially for the kitchen. The owners are great to work with and they try to make sure your stay is as comfortable as possible- they even have a crib and small booster chair for kids! I'd recommend this house to any large group looking for a great weekend in the mountains!
We just spent Thanksgiving at this magnificient home which looks down the mountainside to Lake Dillon in the far distance. There are 6 large bedrooms with very comfortable mattresses. They each have their own bathroom; all are full baths but one (it is a half bath with another half bath on the lower level.) The master suite is huge with a sitting area in front of a gas fireplace--there are 4 gas fireplaces in the home. The heated tile floors in the baths are so nice in the morning. The bunkroom for 6 kids is spacious and fun for the younger group--it is off the third king bedroom, so the kids do have to walk through that room to get to the rest of the house.The furnishings are excellent as are the flat screen televisions. The interior ceiling rooflines make this home in itself awesome. There are 3 garages all available for use and a recyling area for the trash. The outside courtyard drive is heated, so getting luggage in and out is easy. Since we were individual families, we especially appreciated the separateness of many of the bedrooms from each other. The king on the second floor had the cutest baby crib in it as well as a pull out couch for one family. The owner/manager couldn't be nicer. We were delighted with this home.
