Luxury Lodge Tucked Between Blue River & Mountain Views – A Haven for Families

Once our family decided to buy in Breckenridge, we hit the ground running. We searched for two years to find the perfect year-round lodge close to town but immersed in nature.

A couple of places came close; most just didn’t have everything we were looking for.

Eventually, after a heated family debate, we decided our best option was not to buy our dream lodge after all, but build it.

And so Cold Water Creek Lodge was born – a 5-bedroom family-friendly lodge just 5 miles from Breckenridge.

Building our ideal place gave us (and our guests!) two BIG benefits.

THE BEST PIECE OF LAND IN BRECKENRIDGE

Cold Water Creek Lodge sits on 13 acres of riverfront property caught between stunning views of the Quandary Peak out the front door, and Red Mountain and the Blue River out the back door. Wildlife sightings – elk, beaver, moose, deer – are common. You’ll forget you’re only 5 miles from town.

Here, you can fall asleep to the rush of water over rocks, and wake to morning coffee with a view of the mountain and deer grazing along the riverbank.

You can step out the back door and be ten feet from fly fishing in the river’s cold and pristine waters. Out front door, and you’re in prime hiking territory with Summit County’s best trail – the McCullough Gulch Trail – winding through the property.

We installed two hot-tub and fire-pit areas (in both the front and back of the lodge) for your family’s own private après-ski and full enjoyment of the magnificent scenery through all four seasons.

In winter, seven world-class resorts are within an hour drive. Even better, WE PROVIDE TWO LIFT TICKETS A DAY as part of your stay. (Inquire for more info.)

Warm your ski boots in our boot warmer for toasty toes.

And after you return from the slopes, defrost in the 8-person hot tub with views of snow-capped Quandary Peak. Or duck inside and enjoy the heat from the floor-to-ceiling fireplace in the Great Room.

In fall, the whole scene bursts into yellow as the aspens play out their autumn drama. Light a crackling fire at the fire-pit, gather around the Adirondack chairs and enjoy the crisp Colorado air.

In spring and summer, the mountains present endless activities and deep green vistas.

A FAMILY-FRIENDLY PLACE

Building also meant we could design the house, from the ground up, to be ideal for families. We love hosting multigenerational family reunions or multiple families traveling together.

Kids and dogs find plenty of space to run around, and the private and paved road with few cars keeps them safe (and also means quick, traffic-free trips into town.)

We provide pack-n-play and a high chair, too.

We even gave kids their own section of the house, called the Bunkhouse, with a gameroom where they can decamp together for video games on the LCD flatscreen with Nintendo Wii, movies on Netflix, or a game of air hockey. Add a few mugs of hot chocolate and you’ll have some happy kids.

The attached bunkroom with three bunk beds provide a summer camp setting for telling stories by flashlight past bedtime. They get their own attached bathroom, too, and in the gameroom, there’s also a couch that folds out into a queen bed.

The living areas are open to each other, and cozy for conversation, shared meals, and poker in the adult cardroom. The windows in the Great Room overlook a spectacular view of Quandary Peak.

The kitchen has high-end GE Monogram appliances (including 2 dishwashers!), granite countertops, and heated floors made from reclaimed pine found right here in Summit County. Flip some pancakes and serve them at the granite breakfast bar!

EVERYONE GETS A GREAT BEDROOM

No need to rush to claim the best bedrooms when you arrive. We made them all pretty great. All have their own private, attached bathroom. If you’ve traveled as a group before, you know how essential that is!

We also provide cozy comforters and butter soft sheets and flatscreen TVs in every single room.

BOOK TODAY

We’d love to help make your Breckenridge getaway wonderful, so let us know what we can do.

There is no slow season at Cold Water Creek, thanks to our year-round amenities and activities. We encourage you to book today, using the yellow “Book It” button to the right. Thanks!

Why Mark Ronchetti chose Blue River

After looking all over Summit County and finding some great locations we settled on the McCullough Gulch Reserve to build our Colorado vacation home. The Blue River is literally ten feet behind the house. The best hikes in Summit county border the property. With 13 acres you can stretch out and get away from it all with Breck just a few miles down the road. As great as many areas around Breck are you will not beat this location or this house. The views are classic stunning Colorado with all the conveniences of being right next to one of the best ski towns in North America.

What makes this house unique

The Cold Water Creek Lodge sits on 13 acres of Blue River frontage just south of Breckenridge. You can be skiing Breckenridge within 5 minutes of leaving the Lodge. Out the front door of the Lodge you can hike the most stunning trail in Summit County, the McCullough Gulch Trail. This hike features breathtaking waterfalls and high mountain lakes. Out the back door of the Lodge you can fish the Blue River. You will have two miles of river all to yourself.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5
We had a family reunion of sorts with 15 people staying at the house and skiing. 4 familes with 8 adults and seven kids. Everything was great. We enjoyed being far enough outside Breckenridge to enjoy the quiet and close enough to get the slopes in a jiffy. The rooms for the adults are in a different part of the house so the kids could play and be loud without disturbing the rest of the group. There six bathrooms and we used them and never ran out of hot water. The owners were nice, responsive, and helpful. The medallions were great for skiing (a considerable extra with lift tickets costing $130).

Beautiful Cabin in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5
We decided to take our parents to Colorado for their 50th wedding anniversary. Their 4 grown kids, 4 grand kids, 1 great grand kid, and their beloved dog. After a lot of looking we chose this beautiful lodge. We cannot say enough wonderful things about this house... It exceeded our expectations! First and foremost it is immaculate and well appointed. Starting with the entry there is certainly enough space to store all of everyone's gear. A large mud/coat room off the garage houses a boot/ glove warmer , hooks for coats and lots of cubbies. Enter into the main part of the house- spectacular! Kitchen so large and has EVERYTHING we needed. Large family room with fireplace and comfortable leather furniture. We really liked the master bed and bath right on the main floor for our parents so they didn't have to climb steps. All other bedrooms with their own bath were superb... Plenty of room in the huge showers (with rock floors that made you feel as though you were in a spa. The kids had their own "wing" of the house with bunk beds, bath and game room. We loved the hot tub in the evening with the snow falling. It is just a beautiful place. Beautiful views and quiet setting away from town.
Thank you so much to the owners for sharing your home with our family to make a memorable vacation.

Ten of us went on a ski trip to Colorado. We stayed at Cold Water Creek Lodge for a week and it was just awesome! The lodge is situated about 15 min away from Breckenridge ski resort. We skied at Breck, Keystone, Vail and Beaver Creek during our stay.

The place was exactly what we expected and more. We enjoyed the hot tub almost everyday after skiing. We had a problem with a garage door and Mark, the owner responded right away.

All of us had a great time.
Thank you Mark and Kristy. We'll be back!

A Very Merry Family Christmas!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Coldwater Creek last February and when we were planning a big family Christmas, we knew this was going to be our place! The house is really outfitted for 16 people-- no shortages of mugs, or dishes, etc. We filled every bed and had a great time! Plus the house is big enough that even when you have 16 people, you aren't getting in each other's way all the time. We had all ages-- from 15 to 90-- and the house suited everyone. It was so easy to fall out the door and go skiing at Breckenridge or elsewhere, or slap on snowshoes and hike around in the National Forest that is literally right out the back door! The gas fireplace is easy to use and makes the house so cozy, the hot tub is fantastic. Where else can you soak in a hot tub in a national forest!? The teenagers really used the air hockey table and the television in the den off the bunk room; it was nice for them to have an area that was all theirs! This house is so welcoming, comfortable, and easy-- we can't recommend it highly enough. It made Christmas 2013 really special.

Perfect Family Gathering Spot

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful! Wonderful! I will repeat many of the previous comments, but there really is no other way to describe this property. When you first turn down the road off of Hwy 9 you know this isn't going to be your typical vacation, and once you come around the bend and get your first glimpse of the home, you know you made an excellent choice! You will wonder out of all the homes listed on VRBO, how it was that you were lucky enough to pick this one. The pictures of this home are fine, but they just can't do it justice. The owners obviously had a clear idea of what they wanted when they designed, built and decorated this home. We first entered through the garage and had a straight view through the foyer into the dining room and then into the great room. And when I say room, there is room! Our family did not feel closed in or run into each other. Another thing we noticed right away is how immaculate they kept the home. Each window had a beautiful view. I admired the majestic Quandary Peak out the living room window over my cup of coffee each morning - heavenly! And the kitchen? I loved loved loved the kitchen. There is so much counter space and it is stocked so well, it's perfect for preparing big family dinners with others. I would make pasta, while my Mom chopped up salad and my cousin prepared the next morning's breakfast, all while the men supervised as they were gathered around the bar area with their drinks. Having the master bedroom on the main floor was perfect for us, as my Mom has a hard time with stairs, and we loved the view of Red Mountain from the upstairs master bedroom. Our first snowfall in the house started one evening and it was gorgeous! We went out to soak in the hot tub and you couldn't ask for more beautiful surroundings. I was struck by the quiet, and I could still see the moon through the clouds shining on Quandary Peak. Just perfect! The next morning we woke up to find the driveway had already been plowed, and then they came back to shovel the front and back patios! How convenient! We had our two Corgis with us and they loved running around outside. The location of this home is great as you are surrounded by nature and very close to the trails, but yet you are just off the main highway and it's only a five minute trip for some shopping, hitting the slopes or to visit one of the fun restaurants. I can't thank the owners enough for their help in making this such a memorable & wonderful vacation for me & my family.
