DELIGHTFUL FAMILY-FRIENDLY HOME FOR YOUR SKI OR SUMMER BREAK.

Blue River House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Superbly comfortable Home and excellent value in South Breckenridge. We're located close to the slopes and downtown (4 miles/5 minute drive), but tucked in the woods for a relaxing getaway. The garage has plenty of space for 2 cars plus ski equipment so you won't need to dig your car out from the snow to head to town or the slopes. The kids will have room to explore on our 0.8 acre treed lot that borders the forest.

Come and relax in our comfy and peaceful home after hitting the slopes/trails of Breckenridge. The main level of the home will welcome you with a well-stocked and open kitchen area that opens up to the sun-lit dining room. Enjoy the warming afternoon sun while preparing meals for hungry skiiers/hikers. The living room, warmed by a newly installed gas fireplace, is the perfect place to relax and do some reading, sit around and chat, or catch a show on TV. We also have a study area with cable internet if you need to do some work or surf the net in a quiet location. Upstairs you'll find two very large and inviting bedrooms, outfitted with luxurious furnishings to pamper you. The beautiful vaulted ceilings with custom ceiling fans and skylights add to the relaxing ambiance...you're sure to get a perfect night's sleep.

The main attraction in winter is skiing on the famed ski slopes of Breckenridge. There is also cross country skiing, sledding and snowshoeing nearby. In summer the area boasts fabulous hiking trails, a bike trail that stretches from Breckenridge all the way to Vail and beyond, fishing in the local lake, boating/sailing on nearby Dillon reservoir, and many sporting events (running races, cycling events, etc.)

My husband and I moved to Denver from Australia in 1996 with a plan to stay for 3-5 years and then move back. We fell in love with the mountains (playground) of Colorado and decided not to move back. We purchased our vacation home so that we can enjoy the skiing, sledding, backpacking, bicycling and many other fun activities that Breckenridge has to offer with our two boys.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Of all the mountain 'fun spots' in Colorado...Breckenridge feels most like home to us. The town offers great dining and shopping without being 'too fancy'. There are many fun events happening in and around Breckenridge throughout the year and just about any outdoor sporting option you can think of. Our home is just outside the Breckenridge downtown area so we can easily enjoy the hustle and bustle of Breckenridge, but also escape to peace and quiet and have a place for the boys to run around and explore.

The property sits on 0.8 acres of wooded land exactly 4 miles from downtown Breckenridge...a great spot for kids to run around and explore. The home has a detached 2 car garage with plenty of room for 'extra' equipment such as skis or other recreation equipment. There is also extra 'parking space' outside the garage for boats, RVs, etc. The bedrooms have beautiful vaulted ceilings, plentiful closet space and custom ceiling fans which provide a comfort on hot summer days.

Perfect Breckenridge getaway

  • 5 of 5
We took a spring break trip to the rocky Mountains, and wow what a great place to call home for a week! Settled in a fairly secluded spot with a gorgeous backyard and tree line made the hottub on the rear patio even more enjoyable after a long day on the slopes. We were also able to make use of the included snowshoes and sleds in the garage and ventured out in the back of the house to see some beautiful scenery right next to the property.
The house was top notch! Clean, very comfortably furnished with plenty of decorations to give it that homey feel, with plenty of towels, bedding and a full kitchen with everything you need to feed a hungry group. The huge heated garage was also a lifesaver with keeping all of our gear and vehicle snow and ice free.
The cabin slept 5 guys comfortably with room to spare, perfect for all ages.
The owners were unbelievably great hosts as well! They provided very detailed instructions before arrival and even some tips on where/what to see in the area.

After our trip was over, the owners even went above and beyond by locating and mailing some forgotten belongings we had left after our trip was over! Couldn't ask for a more pleasant experience or host!

Thanks again for such a great time and we hope to stay again if we can make it out in spring of 2015!

Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5
I rented the home with some friends last weekend, and as my title suggests - it was perfect! The price point, location, accommodations, etc. were exactly what we were looking for. The pantry and kitchen were stocked with anything you may need to cook (which we did both nights because of the convenience), the house is stocked with towels, shampoo, soap, and anything a family may forget or not have room to pack, and the hot tub was icing on the cake! We were able to comfortably sleep 6 guests in the home with no issues whatsoever.

I would recommend this home to anyone looking, and will be renting it again without question!

Owner's Response: Hi Danny,
Thanks for taking the time to write your review...we're so glad you all enjoyed your stay up in Breckenridge this past weekend. I do apologize for the early-morning wake-up call when the snow fell off the roof...we have someone coming up this week to see if they can remove some snow so that won't happen again any time soon (one of the downsides of getting TONS of snow up there)!. Come back and visit us again in Breckenridge soon...its always easy to have a terrific time in Breck!

Cheers,
Sandy Boots

Literally a home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
The Boots cabin had everything that you could possibly need for a getaway in Breckenridge. The location was perfect, it was just close enough to town that driving wasn't a huge issue and it was far enough from all of the downtown craziness. The weather was absolutely gorgeous while we were there! Skiing in Breckenridge was amazing. The hot tub after a long day of skiing was definitely one of the best perks. The owners were very nice and helpful. I would definitely recommend this cabin to everyone and would definitely come back!

Wonderful Cabin!

  • 4 of 5
Although I had altitude sickness for 2 days, I couldn't ask for a better cabin. It had everything we needed! Plenty of snow right outside the cabin for our kids to play in. The garage was so handy too and had snow shoes, sleds, etc. for us to use. This cabin is more than enough room for our party of 2 adults and 2 twin toddler boys. Will rent this cabin again if we ever find ourselves back at Breckenridge.

Just what we wanted

  • 5 of 5
We loved the house and property and everything we needed we found in the house. We cooked all of our meals in so it was helpful to have a well stocked kitchen. We chose the location because we wanted to hike Mohawk Lakes for the second time as a family, before everyone is off for college, school, jobs etc for the fall.. We would stay again, though, for skiing, because of the location and how welcoming the property and owners were. Thank you for sharing your home with us. The kids loved the air hockey in the garage and the hot tub. My husband and I loved the very steep climb up your back property made possible by the ropes!

Owner's Response: Dear Nancy,

We're so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay here in Breckenridge. Not many of our guests venture out back and up the hill, but we love adventurous folks like you (it is pretty fun to explore out back...our kids love to hang out in the trees!) We're up here at the moment and have your son's hoodie, so will bring it back with us tomorrow and post it out on Monday. Thank you for taking the time to write a review...and we wish you all a fabulous tail-end of summer!

Cheers,
Sandy Boots

Cozy but roomy- perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5
We were looking for a house to "get away from it all" and this did the trick- all the conveniences of home (including a very comfortable master bed), a well-stocked kitchen, good coffee maker, dishwasher, and even a hot tub! The owners were very easy to work with which made it a perfect place to rent.
