BEAUTIFUL LOG LODGE ON THE BLUE RIVER, CLOSE TO 3 SKI RESORTS

Breckenridge House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom, 5 Bath Lodge on 17 Acres with Mountain Views in Every Direction.

The warmth and ambiance of Rivertree Lodge will make you feel right at home from the moment you step inside. Set on 17 acres of lush aspens and blue spruce with the beautiful Blue River just out your back door, miles of biking trails out your front door, and 3 major ski resorts just minutes away, you are in the perfect mountain paradise! Spacious and inviting, it boasts large logs, stone fireplaces, warm woods, and comfortable furnishings throughout. Rustically elegant finishes are obvious everywhere from the hand-scraped hickory and slate floors to the custom iron and stone work, granite countertops, copper ceilings, and lovely woodwork.

Rivertree Lodge is ideally located just 5 miles from Breckenridge ski resort, 6 miles from Keystone, and 7 miles from Copper Mountain. Just a 5-minute walk from beautiful Lake Dillon and surrounded on all sides by glorious mountain views, you can start your days by stepping out the back door for some world-class fly fishing, and end your days by the cozy fireplace! Miles of bike trails are accessible right out the front door. Or if you prefer a more leisurely vacation, you can idle away your hours in the hammock or on the wooden bench swings nestled down by the river, or enjoy a good book and a cup of hot chocolate! The Blue River meanders through the property, inviting you to enjoy its serenity and beauty.

The main floor has a vaulted ceiling, huge stone fireplace, and amazing floor-to-ceiling views of the Blue River. It also has 2 game tables, a big screen HD TV, and a lovely antique piano, which was originally the bar piano in the old Leadville Saloon and was played by Doc Holliday! The kitchen and dining room open off of the great room, creating a comfortable flow and a feeling of openness. The dining room has two walls of windows overlooking the river, a lovely copper ceiling, and a large table which seats twelve. With additional tables and chairs you can seat 24 for meals. The kitchen boasts warm alder wood cabinets, rustic ceiling beams and granite countertops, along with top of the line appliances. There are two dishwashers, making kitchen cleaning a snap! In addition to the large refrigerator/freezer in the kitchen, there is a second downstairs for extra food storage. The sound system allows you to use your own ipod or iphone to play your favorite music throughout the main floor, as well as on the deck and back patio. Sitting on the back deck, with its dining table, large gas grill, and comfy chairs, you can enjoy the sounds of the river and the scent of the blue spruce and pine trees.

Ideal for families or groups, Rivertree Lodge can sleep 20 comfortably. The master bedroom has a king size bed, gas fireplace, HD TV, and private bath. With french doors opening onto a balcony, you can close your eyes each night to the lullaby of the river singing you to sleep. The guest room has a queen bed with attached bath. There are also two bunk rooms with hand-scraped aspen log bunk beds. The first sleeps 8 and the second sleeps 6, and each has its own private bathroom. In addition, there is a queen size sleeper sofa in the loft. The loft, with a lovely view to the mountains on one side and the river on the other, also serves as a cozy library/study.

The gameroom boasts a big screen HD TV with theater-quality surround sound. A DVD library is available for viewing, and there are also video game consoles and games, including Guitar Hero. A large poker table will provide fun evenings of friendly competition playing cards or boards games! On the patio just outside the gameroom door you’ll find a hot tub large enough for 8 people...perfect to ease those sore muscles after a long day on the slopes!

The complimentary Summit Stage shuttle bus stops at the corner, making it easy to get to any of the area ski resorts or other destinations without having to drive or park. In addition, the Colorado Mountain Express offers shuttle service from Denver International Airport right to your doorstep. Nearby activities include nordic skiing, ice skating, tubing, hiking, picnicking, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, and sailing. Beautiful Breckenridge golf course is just 3 miles down the road. You are just minutes from fabulous restaurants, delightful shops, the Silverthorne Outlet mall, and movie theaters. The surrounding towns boast numerous festivals, concerts, art shows, and markets. The old mining town of Breckenridge will charm you with its twinkling lights reflecting off of the snow in winter and its baskets full of vibrant flowers in the summertime.

Make Rivertree Lodge your perfect winter or summer getaway! So close to everything you need or want yet so private, Rivertree Lodge is the perfect place for your family’s perfect vacation!

Rivertree Lodge is not just a house to us - it is our vacation home-away-from-home! We want all of the amenities and comforts of home when we come here, and we want you to enjoy them as well. We hope you'll enjoy Rivertree Lodge and feel at home there as much as we do!

Holly Lewis purchased this house in 2007

We love the Colorado Rockies! The beauty at any time of year will take your breath away, and there is always something fun to do! The Breckenridge area is the perfect mountain escape, with something for everyone. But we always say it's also the best place in the world to do absolutely nothing! After searching all over Colorado for 5 years to find the perfect property, we purchased this land and built Rivertree Lodge. The location could not be more perfect! With 17 acres right on the Blue River and mountain views in every direction, you feel that you are in your own secluded piece of paradise, yet you are only minutes from all of the amenities of a vibrant ski town. Summer and winter, there is so much to do in this area, and Rivertree Lodge is easily accessible to it all!

Rivertree Lodge has the unique advantage of being centrally located to all the amenities of Summit County while still allowing you the peace and privacy of being nestled in 17 acres of beautiful blue spruce and aspen trees. There is no more tranquil sound than the Blue River tumbling over its bed of rocks, calling you to fly fish out your back door or singing you a lullaby as you drift off to sleep in your comfy hammock. If lake fishing is your preference a 5-minute walk will bring you to the shores of Lake Dillon. You will enjoy breathtaking mountain views in every direction, and you have the convenience of the Summit Stage bus stop being right on the corner. Miles of bike trails are just out your front door, splitting off in 3 different directions for endless hours of biking fun. Within a few minutes’ drive you can be skiing in Breckenridge, Keystone, or Copper Mountain, and just a bit further down the road are Vail and Beaver Creek. The summer boasts endless fun activities such as picnicking, hiking, horseback riding, whitewater rafting, free outdoor concerts, markets, art shows, and a fantastic golf course just 3 miles from your front door. Year-round you will enjoy delightful shops in Breckenridge and Frisco, and a great outlet mall in nearby Silverthorne. Rivertree Lodge is the perfect spot for your mountain vacation!

Spring Break

We went with 17 people on spring break and had a wonderful time. The house was fabulous and had everything we needed and lots of space to spread out. The kitchen was perfect allowing us to have large family meals most evenings. The snow was beautiful and the house allowed us fantastic views. We sat by the fireplace and watched the snow fall and the river flow. The hot tub was a nice thing to look forward to after skiing all day. We never ran out of hot water in the showers and we all had plenty of room for sleeping with our own beds! We plan to visit again in the future!

A Weekend of Perfection

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 2, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
We stayed at this house for my thirtieth birthday weekend and could not have picked a better spot. The dining room and kitchen provided such a wonderful, warm setting for cooking and serving dinner for 20+ people. With two dishwasher and two stoves, cooking and cleaning for that many was an enjoyavke experience instead of a chore. The living room view is divine, and the chairs in front of the big windows will provide the best vista for your morning cup of coffee. The house is secluded enough to offer privacy for playing loud music for a dance party, gathering around the piano apres ski, or just late night hot tub sing alongs, yet close enough to Breck for a quick drive to the mountain, or to take the bus from right across the street. The game room downstairs allowed for late night poker and day time movies. So many ski houses run out of paper towels, pots and pans, toilet paper, etc., and while we lugged all that stuff to the house, we never needed any of it. I can't express how beautiful this house is--you'd be crazy not to book it!

A Terrific End to Our Honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 3, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2014
My wife and I spent four days here at the end of our honeymoon, after spending the first eight in Hawaii. It was such a nice way to round out our first few days of being married! Breck was having a record snowfall so we mainly just enjoyed being cozy next to the fire, reading, eating and making puzzles together. Breck was holding the International Snow Sculpture competition while we were there, and this is lodge is conveniently located so that it was a quick drive into town. The furnishings were exactly our style and the kitchen was well stocked with the necessary cooking implements. We will be coming back!

Gorgeous and Spacious!

  • Submitted: Feb 23, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
What a pleasure it was staying here! We couldn't have found a better place for the twenty of us to come together from all over the U.S. Finding a place where so many can have their own bed was wonderful. Many places count on people sharing the queens and kings...not this mansion! 2 bunk rooms takes care of everyone. It snowed all weekend and the driveway was cleared for us continually.

Pros: all the beds, wonderful kitchen and eating space, comfortable seating in the entertainment areas, places to lounge and read, HOT TUB!!

Cons: in the winter, the distance to the summit bus is almost unwalkable. Any other time of year is probably fine as you could walk across straight to the intersection. In the winter, however, there is no pathway to get there so you'd have to walk on the long road which wouldn't be very safe.

Amazing House and Host

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 21, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2014
I recently stayed at the Lodge and couldn't say better things than all of the other reviews. The house was just as described in the photos but better. The downstairs game room allowed time for the guys to play poker and watch games while the others were upstairs sitting around the fire for a great evening. The master bedroom is separated from the rest of the rooms to allow for a nice getaway. Great kitchen that allowed us to cook meals and sit at the nice dining room table. The bunk rooms are large enough to accommodate people in the rooms. I feel the best part of this property is how close it is to the highway but when in the house, all you can see is the river and mountains. Truly a surreal scene. It is also a close 5 mile drive to Breckenridge and Frisco.

Beautiful, warmly inviting log home on 17 acres right on the Blue River! Ideally located only 5 miles from Breckenridge ski resort, 6 miles from Keystone, and 7 miles from Copper Mountain. Fly fish right out the back door and enjoy miles of bike paths out the front! This is the perfect mountain getaway - you'll feel totally secluded sitting on the back deck listening to the river tumble by as it heads to lovely Lake Dillon, just a 5-minute walk away, while being just minutes from all of the fabulous restaurants, shops, theaters, and other amenities available in Breckenridge, Frisco, Dillon, and the surrounding area. In the winter enjoy world-class skiing and boarding, nordic skiing, ice skating, tubing, and the beauty of the snow-covered peaks. In the summer you can enjoy countless activities such as hiking, biking, golf, alpine slide, picnicking, horseback riding, whitewater rafting, and sailing. And of course, there's not a lovelier way to while away the hours than sitting by the cozy fireplace with a cup of hot chocolate on a chilly evening!
