In ski jargon, 'Black Diamonds' are the toughest ski runs for experts only-- but you won't need to be an expert to enjoy this incredibly gorgeous Alpine Lodge! At 10,500 feet, it is nestled in the heart of South Park. Western Frontier meets Elegance in this Gracious home. You'll find the BDAL rivals fine European Ski Lodges and provides Luxurious amenities without the crowded tourist feeling and high prices you will find only 15-20 minutes away in Breckenridge and Summit County. Completely avoid the I-70 weekend & holiday traffic jams by taking US Highway 285 practically right to the house-- it is a breathtaking 1.5 hour drive from either Denver or Colorado Springs. Convenient to major highways in snowy weather, the BDAL is beautifully tucked into pine and aspen forests with huge views. No tired, dark 'cabin' with shabby furniture and small beds here, but 5800 sq ft of custom built luxury overlooking the amazing Continental Divide - huge views of Fourteeners right out your windows or from the private hot tub! Gourmet kitchen - with Nespresso, Keurig and Cuisinart Coffee Machines, 4 large bedrooms (3 kings) and 3 large baths will easily accommodate 10. The luxury master suite is an eye-popper-- see all the features below for it, there is a second king suite upstairs. (We have provided several air mattresses as well). The vaulted Great Room with large log scissor-trusses and a stone-surround wood-burning stove create a Fabulous Resort Lodge experience. Plenty of wood available! The exercise room upstairs has five large view windows and a Bose CD/Ipod sound system, spinning bike and elliptical trainer. Downstairs you'll find 2 more spacious bedrooms, one with a king bed and the other with 2 sets of bunks, and another large bath as well. The downstairs Great Room is a great entertainment area to give you (and the kids!) room to spread out. This 5 acre property has the remnants of a gold mine from the last century, the water there even has two schools of Rainbow Trout (just for looking--no fishing please--they are just getting established! There are several stocked fishing locations within 5 minutes' drive.) We've also just cleared a ski/sledding run on the hillside behind the house! Sleds & helmets and snow shoes provided. Hands down one of the nicest rentals in Southpark. You will find the BDAL to be an elegant retreat with a unique Rocky Mountain touch-- you'll want to come back again and again!

Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi Teresa, thank you so much for the use of your home. It is the most amazing, beautiful place I've ever stayed. You are truly lucky to own such a piece of paradise.
We're a USAFA military family. After traveling the world, we chose to settle down in the high mountains of Colorado. We split our time between the Front Range and our mountain home to relax and play.
This is one of the most beautiful places in the world. We enjoy the convenience of all the different kinds of mountain fun in our own front yard. While we are in the mountains, it only takes 2 mins to be on the hwy to Summit county.
After a great day of skiing, we don't have to drive the I-70 bumper-to-bumper traffic for hours to get home. We are in the middle of Fourteeners, gold medal fishing, biking, and hiking--God's country. Use the spotting scope in the great room to look for bears and elk on the divide!
