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 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.

About Holly

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

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!

Best vacation ever!

  • of 5
The cabin was as cute as can be! Only a couple minutes from downtown. The owners were awesome and answered all our questions and gave some great tips on hikes and places to eat with our kids. The beds were super comfy, the kitchen fully stocked with real pots and pans, spices, coffee and more! We were so spoiled! We can't wait to return!

We were impressed from the beginning

  • 5 of 5
From the second we started the reservation process, we were impressed. Holly gave me a call to go over a few things which made me feel even better about our decision. The cabin has a definite cozy mountain feel that we loved. The beds were amazingly comfortable and clean, as were the bathrooms and kitchen. The hot tub on the deck was a requirement from our perspective, and it was perfectly located under the stars and very clean. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking which was also a plus. Also, it's the perfect distance from downtown Breck and very close to numerous hiking trails. We will be back!

Great Home Tucked Away in Breck

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here with 7 people (4 kids) and 2 dogs. It was the perfect vacation for our family. The neighborhood is modest and very quiet with plenty of places outside to explore. Our dogs were happy and relaxed and made friends with the neighbor dogs. Our children had a blast in the tree house and exploring the nearby beaver ponds. Town was only minutes away, yet we felt total privacy and quiet peace. It was a perfect trip. Also, the beds were extremely comfortable and while we were there we experienced some minor issues with the home of which Holly quickly and graciously handled.

Best Trip Ever!

  • 5 of 5
My family & I absolutely loved our time in Breckenridge, and the Quinn’s beautiful cabin was the icing on the cake. It was a warm & rustic home located at the edge of Breckenridge. This cabin was close enough to feel like a true cabin in the mountains, but close enough to town that you can enjoy the great restaurants & shopping with a quick 5 min car ride. It is tough to find a vacation rental that captures the hearts of both an elementary school child and a teenager. Our youngest daughter loved the tree house & air hockey table, while the oldest was difficult to get out of bed because it was a “small slice of heaven”. The attention to detail was appreciated. From the cozy mattress toppers, the high-end toiletries and the bottle of wine at our arrival we felt welcomed and at home from day 1. We were very pleased with the high level of customer service provided and will be back on our next stay in Colorado.

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.
