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.

About Samantha

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

Why Samantha chose Blue River

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..

What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Otherwise, nothing else we are aware of.

Great Ski Trip! Amazing House!

  • 4 of 5

The house was very spacious, comfortable and clean. The owners were very friendly and easy to work with. They were easy to get a hold of at all times. They were very attentive and ensured that we checked into the house ok. A book was provided with general information about the house (which was very helpful). We really appreciated that there were snacks available for the guests. We also paid it forward and left snacks/ drinks for the next guest. ;)

We really enjoyed our trip! The house made it feel very homey! We look forward to coming back to Breckenridge and making this our home again during our next trip.

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you enjoyed your time at 'Tranquility at 10,000 Feet'. We do our best to make sure it is a home away from home for our guests. We too love the fact that guests pay it forward with the snacks. We try to keep the cabin stocked with everything from spices, snacks, condiments... to laundry detergent, shampoo, etc. Glad it was so much fun for your group. Look forward to your visit in the future.

Awesome trip! Fantastic House!

My husband and I and our daughter and her husband spent a week here in Jan-Feb 2015. This place has everything you could possibly want for a great relaxing get away in the mountains! The house was gorgeous and so are the surroundings. The owners are so accomodating and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and were eager to help with any questions while we were there. We enjoyed skiing, dog sledding and snowmobiling. It was so relaxing just watching the beautiful snow fall from the big open living room windows and also while enjoying the (very nice) hot tub. Breckenridge is a very short drive away and they have a great 2-car garage to keep your vehicle in. Can't say enough about this was amazing! We look forward to coming back again!

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you had such a great time at the cabin. I love watching the snow fall while enjoying the hot tub too. We try very hard to think of everything that you would possibly need during your stay so feel like you are in your home away from home. We welcome you back anytime.

Great house, very well appointed!!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I are all from Denver and like to get together for a long weekend in the mountains each winter to hit the slopes. There were 8 of us this year and this house did not disappoint. The kitchen was very well stocked with everything needed to cook and more - I'd forgotten my spices but the pantry/etc was well stocked with everything that I needed. The previous renters left a bottle of wine that we enjoyed, and we paid it forward and left some good beers and snacks for the next renters. In fact, the owners encourage this and I think it adds a nice personal touch.

House was nice and cozy - none of us wanted to go "out on the town" because we enjoyed relaxing in the large family area - we were perfectly happy staying in and enjoying the hot tub after a day of skiing, and playing cards or board games each night. Good selection of DVDs too and there was a little reading nook with some books. Even when not stated at other rentals, we always treat rental properties as shoe-free - but here at each entry point they provided convenient plastic boot mats that collected and contained any snow melt and minimized mess at the entry areas. Like I said - they thought of everything and the house was very well appointed.

The owners were great too - good communication all throughout the rental process, very responsive, a clear instruction book, and a guest book that was fun to read and add our own entry.

Last but not least, we had visits from several friendly neighborhood dogs!

Great neighborhood, quiet, quaint, relaxing, and conveniently located. Exactly what our group was looking for. Great all year round place. Would definitely come back!

Owner's Response: Mike & I are so glad that you and your friends had such a great time. We truly do try and make the cabin feel like a home away from home... Glad that you enjoyed the wine that we left for you.. and love that you paid it forward for others. Next time you visit, you will discover that based on your suggestion, I added a few new games to the collection.

A wonderful trip to ring in the new year!

  • 5 of 5

Hands down the best home we've rented on a family vacation! It had all we needed and more. Breckenridge is just a short drive...10 minutes at the most. We had kids ranging in age from 8-18, and there was more than enough for them to do. Our daughters loved the hot tub after a day of skiing, 8 year old twins fell in love with Wesley, the lovable neighborhood golden retriever, and our 12 year old couldn't get enough of all the snow surrounding the house. We enjoyed skiing, snow tubing, a sleigh ride/dinner, shopping, and relaxing in this lovely home. We highly recommend Empire Burgers...yummy! We'll be back and Tranquility at 10,000 Feet will be where we stay...I've already recommended this house to friends!

Owner's Response: We are so glad that everyone had such a great time at the cabin. Wesley is always a big hit. We tell everyone he is the unofficial mayor of Blue River. WE have tried very hard to make our cabin the true 'home away from home' for our guests... glad you felt that way about 'Tranquility at 10,000 Feet'. We look forward to your return.

A wonderful pre Christmas family get together

  • 5 of 5

Our family totally enjoyed Mike & Samanatha's comforable & well stocked home. It was warm & inviting & perfectly located. The weather cooperated and provided 10-20 inches of snow;perfect for sledding,snowshoeing & skiing. Th hot tub was a hit. Breckenridge is a short 10 minute drive and a near perfect mountain ski town. Dinner at the Kenosha steakhouse was enjoyable.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your trip to Breckenridge and our cabin. We try very hard to make sure the cabin feels like a home away from home. We too love the hot tub. It is a great place to sit and enjoy the falling snow and admire the starlight nights. We look forward to hosting you during your next trip.

Great Property...Very Well Decorated for the Holidays and Superb Location for a Ski Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

It is obvious that the owners of this property take great pride in providing a first class vacation home. The location is about 5 minutes outside of Breckenridge in a beautiful mountain setting.

Samantha was great to deal with from the very beginning. The booking process went smoothly and she answered every question we had promptly. The home was very clean and we were so surprised when we arrived as the house was tastefully decorated for the holiday season. They had lights on the outside of the house and even had a decorated Christmas tree for our family to enjoy. It was like being in our own home away from home.

We spent the weekend in Breckenridge skiing and our family had a great time. After a long couple of days of skiing, we spent time in the hot tub on the deck enjoying the mountain air on a couple of cold snowy nights. It was absolutely wonderful.

There are a couple of things that really set this place apart. First, they have a heated two car garage that is a great place to not only keep the car clean but also to store skis, snowboards and other equipment. Additionally, the owners have installed touchpad keyless locks so that we didnt have to keep track of keys. Since there were a few of us, it made it so easy to come and go. They also made sure that the driveway and the deck were cleared nicely after each snowfall. We never had to worry about digging ourselves out of the snow.

The neighborhood is peaceful and truly "tranquil". I would recommend it for families with kids or weekend getaways for couples who are looking for a nice, clean, large home. Everyone can get their own space. There are three large bedrooms each with either a king or a queen bed and there is also a nicely decorated bunk bed room for the kids.

This place is awesome. I hope we are able to get back very soon. Our whole family had a terrific time. Thanks to Mike and Samantha for all of the extra touches and the tremendous hospitality. We hope we are able to come back.
