Incredible Setting In Breck! 3 Bedrooms/2.5 bath, romantic Mnt view & Firepit!

Imagine sitting outside under the tall pines smelling the fresh air. Gently rocking in the double ski lift swing while sipping your morning coffee or afternoon glass of wine, listening to the sounds of the babbling stream running through the back yard! True relaxation! Our beautiful cozy home sleeps up to 9 guests with 2 queen beds and a large ski themed bunk room that sleeps 5, with a trundle that makes into a king sized bed. Upon entering our home there is a wood burning stove and a awesome newly added rock fireplace that is the focal point of the living area! The kitchen is large and open and has service for 12, it's stocked with everything you need to prepare great meals. On the back patio there is a large grill, a table with an umbrella and chairs for your enjoyment. A brand new infra red dry sauna was just added, enjoy the health benefits and relax in the sauna room off the back deck. With downtown Breckenridge less then 8 minutes down the road you will have the best of both worlds! We would love for you to come enjoy our home away from home as much as we do!

About Karen Actkinson

We have been dreaming of having a place in Colorado for years! This is the area where it all began for us when we first took our 3 kids skiing in 1997, we have traveled and vacationed all over the state and Breckenridge is our all time favorite! We live in the DFW area but our oldest son recently moved to the Denver area. We can't get to CO as often as we would like right now so decided to share our place with others. We have had so much fun decorating and making this home our own, we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Karen Actkinson purchased this house in 2013

Why Karen Actkinson chose Blue River

Peaceful, fresh air and a great mountain setting with so many activities to choose from all a short drive away.

What makes this house unique

When we first looked at this property, there was an inviting porch swing made out of a double seated ski lift chair. As we rocked we could hear the tranquil sounds of water in the background, we immediately headed to the back yard and to our surprise there is a beautiful stream with a cascade right there! Tall pines, and mountain views just added to the beauty of this place. The previous owners were ski instructors and took excellent care of the home. It's been a labor of love to make it our own:)

Beautiful property inside and outside!

Loved staying in your well kept home! We loved being outside by the creek as well as roasting marshmallows on the firepit on the front porch. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is plenty of space to entertain. We absolutely loved staying at your home away from home!

Great Location, Beautiful views.

  • 5 of 5
This was the best place I have stayed in at Breckenridge. The property was very clean and well-maintained. There were amazing views and location. Great place to relax after a long day on the mountain. Just a few minutes from downtown Breck. I would definitely recommend this property to family and friends. We will also be staying here during our next trip to Breckenridge.

We arrived and it was very easy to find. The roads were well maintained and the snow was cleared from the drive way! Getting in and settled was simple and the owners were very helpful. The cabin was clean and very cozy with plenty of space! Everything we had hoped it would be!
