Overview

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 crackling warm cast iron fireplace will keep you warm and cozy while you relax

The gourmet kitchen is stocked with All-Clad pots and pans, Crock pot, pancake griddle, coffee/tea maker and we keep spices, condiments, coffee, tea, hot chocolate. Everything for the gourmand to cook a delicious meal.

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 as you 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, 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), cross country ski, snow shoe, snowmobile, 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.

About Holly

We are a military family. Matt grew up in NY. After graduating from West Point (Go Army), he spent 24 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 design consultant. We have made Colorado our home base.

Holly purchased this house in 2009

Why Holly chose Blue River

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

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!

Breckenridge Family Vacay!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 rented this cabin for a spring break ski vacation. The cabin was great! The hot tub was the hit of the week. We loved the fire pit too. The cabin was very cozy and well equipped. I especially appreciated the spices in the kitchen. The owners were so easy to work with. A great trip all the way around!

Lovely lady get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

Five of my girls friends and I rented this beautiful home for a relaxing bachlorette weekend in February. We wanted a cozy cabin outside of town to relax but something close enough to Breckenridge for easy access to skiing and going out on the town. This house was perfect! Everything was comfortable and clean and there was plenty of room to stretch out and relax. The hot tub was on and ready to go when we arrived. The kitchen was stocked with enough essentials enabling us to stay in and make dinner with only buying minimal groceries. The drive into town was quick, easy, and beautiful. The owner was extremely nice and helpful leading up to our stay and throughout the time we were there. All in all our weekend was perfect. I highly recommend staying here.

Great cabin with phenomenal hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at this cabin which was filled with all the comforts of home. After a horrible trip in from Denver (snowstorm, road closures, nearly 6 hours later.....) what a welcomed surprise to find the lights on for us and a bottle of wine! The owners were such a pleasure to deal with from our reservation to our departure. We have rented many homes from VRBO and without a doubt this experience has been the very best. All of our questions were promptly answered and we loved all of the suggestions made by the owner as well. All you need for a lovely stay is your clothing - everything else has been provided. We are accustomed to a "starter kit" of necessities provided at all of our previous rentals, but here a generous supply is given - right down to the hot chocolate! I simply can't say enough about the hospitality provided by these owners and their genuine desire to show their guests a wonderful stay. We loved the hot tub, the fire pit, and of course the kids loved the air hockey table. Everything was clean, orderly, and in good condition. The drive into town was an easy one. We had a great stay and would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone. Again, the owners here make all the difference!

We recently stayed at the Quinn's cabin during the week of Thanksgiving and thoroughly enjoyed it! We were not only very impressed at how nice, clean and well stocked the cabin was, but also how friendly Holly is and how she made us feel very comfortable about renting their cabin. I had several talks with her on the phone prior to making our decision and she was available by email for any additional questions or concerns we had before our arrival. The cabin is very cute, inside and outside. The beds are very comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked with pots and pans, utensils, spice, coffee and other items you might need. The bottle of wine the hosts had left for us when we arrived along with a few snacks was very welcomed after our drive in from Denver. We can't wait to come back when it warmer to take advantage of the nearby hiking trails, fishing and everything the area has to offer!
