We selected this home as our vacation spot because it was at the town level (versus up 2000 additional feet). This helped our group not be quite so affected by the altitude and was very convenient for popping into town. We have stayed up the mountain off of Boreas Pass road before, and it is a little more convenient to stay closer to the town level. Plus we were able to rent bikes and ride right to the house without having to deal with transporting the bikes via car or being limited to riding to/from the bike shop without keeping the bikes overnight.
The house itself was very spacious with a nice compact design on the second floor with all of the 6 primary bedrooms in a neat little area (there is a 7th bedroom downstairs). It was very nice for 4 out of the 6 upstairs bedrooms to have their own bathroom and king beds, and the balconies worked out really well. The 5th hallway bathroom served the other 2 upstairs bedrooms and the downstairs bunkroom.
The kitchen is nice and very functional with 2 ovens, and gas stovetop and microwave. The extra fridge in the garage is ideal for drinks and leftovers. The dining room table was the perfect size for our group of 10 adults with our 3 kiddos sitting at the bar.
Having the ability to walk down to the river was nice, but be prepared to highstep it through some very high grass/weeds to get there.
Our only suggestion as we left was that we wished the internet connection was better. As it was it was pretty much not functional with only intermittant connectivity and usually only 1mbps speeds when it did connect. Trust me, we didn't want to be on the internet much anyway, but occasionally I did need to research activities, take care of work, send pictures out on email, etc.
I have vacationed in Breckenridge 3 times now and have rented 3 different places. This year I researched dozens of places and even created a pro/con spreadsheet for the top 25 places and ultimately decided on the Blue River Lodge (for my group of 13). After having been there, I would definitely book it again without re-doing any research at all. This place has everything you are looking for in a vacation spot. Clean, up to date, great location, lots of space, nice owners, etc!
