Blue River House Rental Photos and Description

New hot tub.4 Bedroom, 3 Full Bathrooms, 2 Kitchens, Wii, Stocked Pantry

This spacious, open 2600 square foot home sits majestically in the midst of the Arapaho National Forest amongst the tall pines and the colorful aspens. This newly furnished home features two living areas, one upstairs and one downstairs. The large open floor plan is perfect for family gatherings or multi-couple getaways. Our new Arctic Spa hot tub is great for soaking and star gazing or watching the snowflakes fall while relaxing & soaking after a long day on the slopes or trails.

A full, modern kitchen upstairs features granite countertops, a gas range with a warming drawer & convection oven, a full well stocked walk-in pantry as well as plenty of pots, pans and accessories to make a full family meal. We have a Keurig coffee maker with a 'starter supply' of coffee, tea and hot chocolate. Feel free to bring along your favorite brew. WE also have a regular Mr. Coffee coffee pot for those that prefer a full pot. The downstairs kitchen features an electric range, dishwasher, refrigerator and microwave.

Keep everyone entertained with a flat panel TV in almost every bedroom and living area, complimentary broadband wireless, cable TV, a computer in the upstairs common area, and a Wii and a DVD player with plenty of movies for everyone to enjoy. We also have a wide variety of board games.

Curl up with one of our books in our comfortable sunroom.

A spacious, ground level two car garage is a perfect place to store all of that ski gear and it includes a boot and glove dryer to keep those ski boots toasty all night long. Feel free to park your car in the garage…it will accommodate most cars and SUVs.

Exterior doors on the home are equipped with electronic touch pads to facilitate easy access…no keys to handover or lose track of.

There is plenty of room to spread out in this home. Even if there are only two couples in your party, you can each have your own floor with a complete kitchen, laundry room and living room. The home is bright, open and features plenty of windows to allow you to experience beautiful mountain living.

The master bedroom features a king-sized memory foam bed. Two other bedrooms each feature a queen-sized memory foam beds. Each bed has high quality, Egyptian cotton sheets, down comforters as well as firm and soft pillows.

Give the kids their own space…our fourth bedroom features a bunkroom. One bunk bed with twin size bed on top, and full size bed on bottom and a separate twin bed can easily accommodate four. We also have a pack and play for your little ones. Along with a blow up air mattress if needed (queen size).

Our master bedroom has an en suite master bath that includes a very large two-person Jacuzzi jetted tub, separate water closet and a full closet. Each of the other bathrooms comes equipped with a toilet, tub and shower. Two water heaters provide plenty of hot water for all of those competing demands. Every shower has a Shampoo/Conditioner/Bath Gel dispenser... so no need to bring your own supplies.

A large 1,000 square foot outdoor, elevated deck adds to the ambience of this mountain retreat. Sip your coffee, enjoy your favorite beverage, fire up the grill or simply sit and watch the wildlife in this outdoor space. Enjoy the Arctic Spa hot tub too...it will accommodate 5-6 people.

Come and enjoy the beauty of this mountain retreat. We are pet friendly, family oriented and have worked hard to think of each and every detail to make your stay in the Breckenridge area special.

Samantha grew up in a military (Navy) family moving from place to place... Married Mike, a military (Army) man... Yes, it made for some interesting conversations at family gatherings. Mike retired from the Army in 2007 and continues to work in the defense industry. Samantha is a Financial Advisor that works with Soldiers and their families. We love the outdoors and our dogs and horses. We recently moved to Elizabeth, CO which is about 40 minutes from Aurora/Denver from Central Texas..

Samantha purchased this house in 2013

We were invited up to the Breck area to ski with some friends that we were stationed with in Germany. We both fell in love with the area and were determined to find a place to 'escape' the Texas heat. Our search brought us to this wonderful home that is just a short distance from all the activities in Breckenridge... but still has that serene peaceful feeling of being in the country. Sitting up on the second story deck drinking a cup of coffee while watching the moose (yes, moose) wander around below is the ideal start to the day. Being minutes away from great hiking, biking, fishing, and skiing is a perk too. Having a dog friendly neighborhood was key for us too. Being able to jump in your car and drive less than 5 miles to great food, shopping and entertainment and skiing makes this the full package. It just doesn't get any better than this. If you love all things outdoors... this is the perfect place..

Two seperate kitchens, living areas and laundry facilities (one on each floor) makes this a great place for big families or many couples. Lots of space to spread out.

Flat panel TV's in bedrooms and living rooms. Quiet reading room upstairs so you can enjoy the sun and read a great book. Wii, DVD player and moves, games and puzzles in living areas for family fun time. Wifi throughout the house. Computer station upstairs just in case you forgot your computer. Variety of toys for all ages.

Outdoor playground right around the corner.

We have tried to think of everything to make your stay enjoyable and worry free to include all the bulky baby items such as a pack n play, highchair, booster chair, baby gates (for the stairs), plates, sippy cups, etc. we even tried to think of the four legged family members...water/food bowls, crates, toys and an endless supply of tennis balls.

Awesome Place!

  • 5 of 5
Our family and our best friends (a ton of teen aged kids and two couples) enjoyed "tranquility" over spring break. This is our second stay and we love it here! The hot tub is perfect for enjoying the stars and snow! The kitchen is well stocked, the house is immaculate and the beds are super comfy! All this makes for a great getaway location. It was great not having keys to worry about. The keyless locks are so convenient! All the kids come and go and we didn't worry about losing them! Samantha and Mike are awesome hosts.

Owner's Response: As always... we love having repeat guests... but are so glad that the kids enjoyed their stay too. We love that the house gives everyone some room to spread out, but come together too. Enjoying time out on the deck in the hot tub is one of our favorite things to do too. The stars can be amazing at night.

Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5
We can't say enough good things about 'Tranquility at 10,000 Feet'. The cabin was perfect for us. We loved relaxing in the evening in the hot tub viewing the stars at night. We relaxed in the spacious house that really felt like a home to us. Samantha was a dream to work with. She even made sure that we had alternate driving directions because of the constructions on I-70. She and Mike have thought of everything... including keyless locks for all the doors, well stocked pantry, throw blankets for those cool evenings... plenty of towels for everyone... two complete laundry areas with all supplies provided (I didn't plan to do laundry, but ended up needing to do a couple of loads and loved that I didn't have to run out and get detergent, etc)... seems simple, but loved that extra thoughtfulness. We definitely plan to return next summer. One of the best homes I have stayed in EVER. We did not want to leave.

Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We booked this for a long weekend girls getaway (5 of us). It couldn't have been more perfect! The pictures certainly don't do it justice, as it is much bigger than we anticipated. The spacious layout of the home was nice, in that we didn't feel as if we were on top of each other every day. Your home away from home offered everything we needed. The keypads on the doors made our arrival very simple, and we appreciated not having to share keys between the 5 of us as we came and went throughout our stay. We found everything to be clean and well kept upon arrival. We appreciated the assortment of items in the pantry, and found plenty of cookware and other items to prepare meals (although Breckenridge has a variety of wonderful restaurants!). The cool evening weather was perfect for enjoying the hot tub at night. Our entire group couldn't have been more pleased with our stay and look forward to renting your cabin again!

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you had a great time at our cabin. we try very hard to think of everything our guests would need to make their getaway perfect. I too love the keypad... I have lost a key or two before and didn't want anyone to ever worry about that. We can't wait to have you back as our guests in the future.

Creepy...Cameras, Digital Security System, Low Temp. Hot Tub.

  • 2 of 5
We have rented many VRBOs. Never have we seen such an "over the top" security system. We were surprised to discover cameras inside the cabin. On the upper levels, the camera is above the door and faces the staircase, part of the living room and kitchen. On the lower level it is located on the other side of the main room, facing the door, viewing most of the room. In the "welcome book" we were told if we turned off the cameras someone would come and turn them back on and we would be charged a fee. We were also given the option to call the owner to discuss it. As a family, we decided to do nothing because it was our vacation and we preferred no drama or inconvenience but as the weekend progressed it creeped out everyone more and more . The security system was weird too. The cabin opens exactly at 4 PM and closes exactly at 11 AM, the day you leave. When you close an outside door it automatically locks in 30 seconds. The temperature of the hot tube was 98/99 degrees, much too cool for evening tempts. and cool weather. This is all too bad too. The cabin is beautiful and very clean. However, we will never go back because we value our privacy, do not want hassles or confrontations, and prefer a hotter hot tub. We question if the cameras are even legal. This may "protect" the owner's property but What protects us, the renters, from the viewers? This isn't right.

Owner's Response: "Security cameras protect the property when it is empty, and we disclose their presence in the contract sent in advance to all our guests. Our information book that is in the cabin states clearly that guests may unplug the cameras at any time as long as they notify us first. We contacted these guests during their stay and they indicated all was fine and they were having a great time, so we are puzzled about this concern suddenly appearing in a public review. The email that I rec'd from this guest the day after he and his family left... "We enjoyed our stay at your Breckenridge home. Thank you. It was a perfect fit for us. Hopefully, you found the residence in good condition upon our departure..."
To clarify the cameras... They are only at the entrances of the home... They cannot see any other part of the cabin. they are activated only when the doors are unlocked. The information book also has instructions on how to adjust the temperature of the hot tub if needed. A phone call would have easily cleared all issues up immediately. We truly want our guests to have a wonderful time at our cabin. We would have done everything in our power to make our guests stay non 'creepy' and the dream vacation that so many others have experienced during their stay at 'Tranquility at 10,000 Feet'.
