3 MILES TO TOWN! ALL AVAIL SUMMER DATES 25% OFF.

Blue River House Rental Photos and Description

House/Cabin/lodge, 3 Bedrooms, 2 living areas, 3 Baths, Mountain Views Hot Tub!

Our family friendly home sits in a beautiful, serene mountain setting with amazing views! We are only three miles to downtown Breckenridge and the slopes.

Our 2,100 square foot cabin has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, two living areas, and an updated kitchen with all brand new stainless steel appliances.

A brand new furnace, new whole house insulation, and a crackling warm cast iron fireplace will keep you warm and cozy while you relax

The kitchen is stocked with pots and pans, coffee maker and we keep spices, condiments, coffee, tea, hot chocolate,

There are flat screen televisions in both living areas and in each bedroom. You will also find DVD players with movies, a Wii game system and games, air hockey, board games and lots of books. No one should ever get bored here!

Outside keep your feet warm as you walk outside on the heated mat to slip into our Arctic Spa hot tub. Fire up our one of a kind, custom made gas fire pit (just like at the ski slopes), or if you prefer, the wood burning fire pit in the yard, relax in the hammock for afternoon naps, multiple deck chairs and a two-seater swing to sit and relax.

You never have to worry about shoveling snow, we we have a company who plows the drive and shovels the deck. You can just enjoy your vacation!

When you leave the cabin, you are only minutes from so many fun and adventurous activities. In the winter, ski or snowboard at Breckenridge (which is only a five minute drive away), or catch a ride on the free Summit Express Shuttle service you pick up in Breckenridge and go ski at Keystone, or Arapaho Basin. Copper Mountain and Vail resorts are all a short drive as well.

After a day on the slopes you can hit some of the great restaurants in town. Not in the mood to ski or snowboard? How about a sleigh ride or even snow mobile tour? Or, you might take the kids (or just the young at heart) to the great tubing hill in Frisco. Forget your winter coat? There is great shopping in downtown Breck or even hit the outlet mall at Silverthorne.

During warmer months, there are hundreds of trails in Summit County to explore. You can hike a 14er, bike over the pass to Keystone, go white water rafting, catch a ride on a zip line, learn to fly fish, take a Jeep or ATV tour, tour the local gold mines.

In addition, there is always something going on in town, ice sculpture contests, music and festivals, or spend a day at one of the great spas and get a massage.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Beautiful! Was a huge blessing to our whole family. Never knew life could be this good. We loved our stay here-everything was set up so well. We cooked a couple evenings and even grilled burgers outside for my son's 20th birthday. You have a great place here- it is all so beautiful. Thanks for taking such care to make this a great memory for us!

We are a military family. Matt grew up in NY. After graduating from West Point (Go Army), he spent 20 years on active duty Army before retiring and taking a desk job. Holly is a Texan and went to Texas A&M (Gig Em) and is a decorative painter. We have made Colorado our home base.

Holly purchased this house in 2009

We chose this location for the proximity to downtown Breckenridge yet far enough from town to enjoy peace and quiet. We are very close to ski lifts, Quandry Peak and Goose Pasture Tarn (local lake 1/2 mile from the house). We are only one block off Highway 9 (Main road through town). We are 5 minutes from the ski lifts and just minutes from tons of great hiking, snow shoeing, cross country skiing and biking. It is a wonderful get away. One of the most scenic mountain areas in the US with unlimited outdoor activities: Snow Skiing, snowboarding, tubing, mountain biking, fishing, whitewater rafting, snowmobiling, 4-wheeling, hiking, nature, ice skating and more.Truly a beautiful area.

Game-room with air hockey, Wii with games, books, board games, and even a big tub of toddler friendly toys. Flat screens in every bed room and in both living areas. Free high-speed Wi-fi use and a desk top computer for your use. Large outdoor deck with hot tub, large gas fire pit and custom made log chairs. Tree house for the young or just young at heart! Three miles from the ski lifts. We have everything you need for your little ones too: high chair, toddler table with chairs, sippy cups, bibs, kid friendly dishes, and even a pack n play.

LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a week in Breckenridge. We've stayed in several VRBO houses and this is our favorite! You won't regret staying here. It was a short 5 min ride to downtown and the slopes. Parking was no problem. All of the beds are very comfortable. The hot tub was perfect. The kids stayed entertained with the ping pong table, air hockey and Wii. Holly was always available for any questions. You won't regret staying here!

PLANNING RETURN TRIP

  • 5 of 5
Very pleased with the comfort and location of the Quinn's home. The kitchen was particularly well stocked, but there were also lots of family games and recreational equipment to enjoy on those snowed-in evenings. Two different living areas so everyone in our diverse group could spread out and do different activities. Just minutes to town so it was easy to drop off for skiing or sightseeing. Felt more like a home away from home than a rental. Owners were very attentive to details and easy to contact for questions or recommendations. Highly recommend as a destination for families of all ages.

GREAT HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
The house looks just like the picture! We had lots of snow (which we wanted for skiing). The hosts even had the deck shoveled so we could enjoy the hot tub. I've never seen a more well-stocked kitchen with high quality cookware. Beds were comfortable, lots of hot water, cozy, everything that you would want.

The house was well stocked, anything you could need was available. Cozy, comfy, close to town but far enough away for privacy. Clean, well maintained. We will definetly be back and would recommend it to our closest friends.

WONDERFUL HOSTS WHEN THINGS DID NOT WORK OUT

  • 5 of 5
So, we walked into the house and the temperature was 41 degrees. What we learned later was that the new furnace had a faulty ignition and a power outage in the previous days has stopped the furnace and then it could not automatically restart. We called the property manager who asked us to try a few things and then realized it was a bigger problem than just pushing a particular button. So he got in touch with the owners and got a furnace repairman out there. The owners treated us to a very fine dinner in Breckenridge while this all was being fixed. So nice to have the problem addressed, along with the acknowledgement of the disruption to our plans that evening. After that, everything was wonderful and we would definitely stay at this house again.

Owner's Response: It was unfortunate to have the brand new heater go out, but we sure did appreciate your group's understanding that some things are just out of our control. We were happy to treat you all to dinner while we had the HVAC guy fix the issue. You all were a great group and hope to see you again! p.s. the heat is working great again!

FAMILY GATHERING

  • 5 of 5
Our 4th annual holiday / ski trip to the mountains was wonderful. The house was well suited to our needs with 4 grandchildren aged 1 to 9 and 6 adults. The kitchen was very well equipped and perfect for our family meals. The house was clean, comfortable and fun. The owners were friendly, responsive and a pleasure to deal with before, during and after our stay!
