THIS IS NOT YOUR AVERAGE RENTAL WITH TYPICAL CHEAP, MOUNTAIN-THEMED AMENITIES! From the furnishings to the linens to the kitchen appliances, the decor of our home is upscale, contemporary, and most importantly, comfortable. This is the perfect home for 2 - 3 families with children, 2 – 4 couples, or a group of friends looking for the perfect mountain vacation.
Whether you are coming to enjoy Breckenridge for skiing, biking, hiking, fishing, golfing, or to sample one of our local cultural festivals, the location of this home is ideal. We are minutes away from the ski-mountain gondola, main street Breckenridge, the Blue River, and the only Jack Nicklaus-designed municipal golf course in the country.
*** Our home also features a wonderfully situated and beautiful (and clean!) hot tub which stares right at the Breck mountain range. Sit and enjoy the view while you soak out the kinks! ***
The house has two stories, with the main living area upstairs. The open floor plan includes a GOURMET KITCHEN with stainless appliances and an island that seats two adjacent to a large dining area with seating for ten. The family room has a huge, vaulted ceiling with floor-to-ceiling windows that provide unreal mountain range views, a gas fireplace with built-in bookshelves, a large micro-suede sectional sofa that seats 7-8 with a leather ottoman, and a media center with a 60-inch LCD HDTV and Sonos wireless control from your Apple or Android device. The master suite with jetted tub and the queen bedroom with full bath are also upstairs.
Downstairs has a large informal living room with two leather sofas and a 32-inch television. There is also a warm, cozy wood-burning stove in this living area. It is the perfect place for kids to watch movies or play games, or for adults to sneak away with coffee and a book. There are windows across the entire downstairs living area that allow additional fantastic views of Breckenridge. (And, for the executive that can’t fully unplug there is an office area with WIRELESS INTERNET and even a PRINTER/SCANNER!)
Downstairs, there is one bedroom with an extra-long twin over full bunk bed, and another large bedroom with two extra-long twin beds (which can convert to a King). Both bedrooms share a full bath downstairs. The home has huge, expansive decks both upstairs and down that offer spectacular views of the mountains.
The things that make our home truly special are the ideal, livable floor plan, the comfortable, upscale décor, the convenient and accessible location, and the amazing, UNPARALLELED VIEWS of the mountains. We invite you to come and experience what we feel is mountain living at its finest! Call or email us with specific questions or for more photos.

We could not have picked a more perfect home to accommodate the needs of our entire family – we loved it, the kids loved it – we couldn’t believe that we found a home as nice and as comfortable as our own with THOSE VIEWS!!! (The Caldwells, Hickory, NC)

Julie and I (and our dogs Lyza and Jake) are both originally from North Carolina and moved to Colorado a couple of years ago. We're both busy professionals but love all that Colorado has to offer (so do Lyza and Jake). We love everything outdoors and particularly enjoy snowsports (Julie enjoys skiing and snowshoeing while I ski, snowboard, nordic, snowshoe, backcountry ski - pretty much everything...). Kevin's favorite sport is fly-fishing for trout and floating Colorado's rivers and running whitewater. So, you can see why we love our home in Breckenridge. We are getting ready to add to the family this year with our first child due in July, so we're also tremendously excited about that!
UPDATE: We now have a son - Jackson - who is nearly 2 yrs old and part of the family. (Julie tells me that he can't snowboard off the garage roof like I do for at least a couple of years...)
We bought this home because of its location in the middle of Summit County which has every possible outdoor mountain activity within steps or a close drive. However, we had to have tremendous views but yet also be close to the ski slopes, great restaurants, and other conveniences like grocery stores, liquor store, workout facilities. This is absolutely THE HOME for that. Many homes in the area have great views but yet are far away from town (even 5 miles out of town can be a huge hassle during peak weekends with lots of congestion). Other homes are truly ski-in, ski-out, but they have no views, are very cold because they don't get light, and are really unappealing except during ski season. This is our dream home and we've enjoyed creating incredible dreams for our family, friends, and guests who have enjoyed the home.
Interestingly, we never intended to rent our home. However, when Julie got pregnant in late 2008 and found out that she wouldn't be able to ski during the 2008/2009 season, we decided that we'd rent the home (Julie couldn't stand to think of even being at the home and looking out at those ski slopes and not be able to ski them!!!). We had furnished the home as a true home and just as beautifully as we had furnished our Denver home - again, this is a 2nd home and wasn't originally expected to be offered for rental. So that's an important distinction - so many homes (and trust me, we've seen them...) are furnished as rentals first - this is a big difference and you can see it in the style of the home. That being said, our home is generally priced to be very competitive with all homes (even those that we would never even consider staying at).
In addition to the furnishing of the home and the views and incredible location, the other thing that you'll get from us is a 'personal touch'. We've rented direct from owners ourselves and have had some great experiences and some others that weren't so great - we get it. We want those that rent our home to truly feel as if they are our personal guests - they are. From our responsiveness to the inquiries we receive, to the questions we ask about what you're looking for in a home and about your group, to answering questions prior to your arrival and helping to give you a 'leg up' on planning certain aspects of your trip, we always want to treat our guests like we ourselves would like to be treated. Its just what we do and how we are! Thanks for having an interest in our very special home! Kevin & Julie
