Overview

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.)

About Sandra Boots

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.

Sandra Boots purchased this house in 2009

Why Sandra Boots chose Blue River

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Must Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this house! It had everything you could possibly want for a great skiing trip. We had a little problem with a shower head being broke, and the Boots were so nice about it and helped us as soon as they could. They put the customer first which we really appreciated! The location was perfect! Only a couple minutes from Breckenridge, yet in a nice quiet spot with some great views along the road. We did not have a 4WD, and had no problems getting to the house. I can't think of anything I would have changed about this trip. Thank you Boots!

Local family

  • 5 of 5

We live in Colorado Springs, and I've been renting houses in Summit county every year since 1992 for ski trips with my kids, who are now mostly grown up. So, we've stayed in many different places. Usually we stay in town, because I like to be able to walk to dinner, etc. I was a little hesitant to stay in the Boots' cabin as it was a four mile drive to town, but in fact, I liked it very well, and will try to come back again if we can. Actually, the drive is quite short, and it was easy to park up on French, Ridge, or Harris streets to head over to Main Street, and the cabin is so much more spacious and nice than anything we could have found in Breck (at least on our budget). Skiing access is also easy. Simply park over by the Gondola, walk 50 to 100 yards, depending on how early you arrive in the morning, and hop on the Gondola. Convenient, easy. Much better in fact than waiting to catch a town bus from an in town house or condo. The beds are wonderful, the hot tub is great, the kitchen is very well equipped, really, outstanding. We had two of our three kids with us, and there would have easily been room for two more people (four nice bunk beds...nice bunk beds, suitable for adult size people as my kids are at this point) in the bedrooms, and there is a nice sofa bed in the living room, if you really wanted to sleep as many as possible. Finally, Sandra is very easy to work with, very prompt, business-like, friendly. In short, highly recommended. I've been tempted to buy a place up in Breck over the years, but have not felt energetic enough to deal with all of the responsibilities of second home ownership. If I did, though, I'd look for a place in Blue River laid out pretty much like the Boots cabin.

Boots Cabin has it all

  • 5 of 5

Boots Cabin and the owners provided the perfect vacation for my wife and I. The location is close to town, but away from the hustle. The amenities are wonderful, including: constant temperature hot tub, snow sleds, fully functional kitchen, and even plow service for the driveway! Beautiful property, outside and in.

The town of Breckenridge/Breckenridge area hosts several fun events throughout the year, including an ice sculpting competition, Annual Oktoberfest, several outdoor sporting competitions (mountain bike races, road bicycle races, etc.). There are several excellent hiking trails in the area, plus scenic lakes, a top-notch bike trail that will take you all the way to Vail (and beyond), and the nearby Dillon Reservoir for boating and fishing.
