Overview

About the property

7 BR, 7 BTH; sleeps 14; easy walk to everything in town, great ski hill views

In 2016 a major renovation/addition created this large home in Breckenridge just 3 blocks off Main Street. This location makes it perfect for walking to restaurants, bars, shops and the shuttles or gondola, that will take you to the base of Breckenridge Ski Resort. The view of Peaks 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 from the front of the house is truly unmatched, no matter the season.

Originally built in the 1960 our house was an "A" frame. It has been remodeled twice by the current owners, in the summer of 2002, and again in 2015/16. The latest remodel added: 2 beautiful bedrooms with en suites, a loft with bathroom, garage for parking, great room with wet bar, fireplace and BIG VIEWS of the ski hill. The kitchen was completely remodeled with new appliances, cabinets and island. The living room or "Goodnough" room, as we call it, is named after the original owner. It has a 50" flat screen television with DVD/VCR, large couch and big table for games and puzzles. The new Great room has a fire place with multiple areas where guests can gather to eat, play games and/or watch TV on the 55" flat screen. With the addition of the wet bar, a cold beverage is only steps away. All of this, while enjoying possibly the best view in the town of Breckenridge.

With 7 bedrooms, loft and 7 bathrooms, this house can accommodate groups of varying sizes. Four of the bedrooms have king size beds and en suites. Two bedrooms have 2 twin beds and the last bedroom has a queen bed. There is also a loft that could accommodate a couple more guests and has a full bath. The kitchen and dining area were renovated in 2016 with updated appliances and furnishings. There is a sitting area as well, where you can enjoy a cup of coffee while watching the sun gradually light up the ski hill in the mornings or as it dips down behind the 10 Mile Range in the evenings.

The half-acre wooded lot offers seclusion while being just three blocks off Main Street. This property is within a block of a shuttle stop to the ski mountain, or four blocks to the gondola, that will take you to peaks 7 and/or 8. Many of our past guests never use their car, because everything in town is just steps away.

Amid the pines in the rear of the house is a large hot tub, as well as a BBQ grill and a disc golf basket. With a half acre there is plenty of land to create several holes of your own design. A true gem in the middle of this historic ski town.

Breckenridge is a 150 year old Victorian mining town - as opposed to other ski resorts, Breckenridge is truly a real town. It has more night life than anywhere else in Summit County, with over 200 restaurants/bars and shops. Besides the usual skiing in winter and hiking and biking in summer, Breckenridge offers a summer music festival with orchestral performances from classical to contemporary music as well as other festivals appealing to every age group most weekends over the course of the summer. Besides the weekly summer festivals, the base at Peak 8 turns into a families paradise in the summer. There is an alpine slide, mountain coaster, zip line, miniature golf and a multitude of family activities.

Beautiful view of the slopes!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here before and are absolutely in love with the location. The remodeling and addition of the new rooms was incredible. I hesitate to give it such a high rating because that means there will be more people I have to compete against when I go to book it. ;) The place is just ok. ;) You know I'm just kidding. I have to say that the caretaker Troy was really really nice and helpful. The place is a gem and I look forward to visiting again. Thank you so much for allowing my family to enjoy your lovely home.

Great group ski house - great for post slopes hangouts

  • 5 of 5

I booked the house for a bunch of friends to ski Breckenridge for 4 days. It met all expectations. The house is very welcoming, well decorated, and spacious for our entire group. The hot-tub right outside the backdoor is awesome.

Getting to and from the ski resort was super easy. A short walk down the street takes you to two bus stops that can get you to the slopes or gondola base. Or, just walk the less than 1/2 mile to the gondola stop yourself.

We would definitely stay here again if coming back to Breck with a big crew. Thanks for a great stay!

Christmas Break in Breck

  • 5 of 5

The McWilliams home is a special place for our family. This is our third year visiting this home and while we loved the "old" home, the new improvements have added much to our enjoyment. Our grandchildren especially loved the upper room with the big teddy bear! And the big table downstairs is just right to work puzzles while watching football games.

We would highly recommend this home for your family. The proximity to town gives you the flexibility to walk everywhere and leave the car in the garage! Thanks so much for sharing your home with us. We look forward to returning next year!!

Wonderful, roomy home with great mountain views

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at the McWilliams house with several family members. It has been recently remodeled, and it’s just fabulous! The kitchen has been enlarged and totally redone with all the latest appliances. The new addition includes a great room with fireplace with a wonderful view of the Breckenridge ski runs. What I like best about this house is that it very nicely combines the older elements with the new improvements. It’s a large house with multiple common areas, so it’s got plenty of space to enjoy with others, but there are also places where you can carve out more private space—always important when traveling with a big group!

There are at least 6 bedrooms that have their own bath plus additional sleeping space that shares bathroom space. So, there’s plenty of space for couples/adults as well as room for kids. The hot tub with heated mat felt great!

The location is also perfect. It’s in town, so once you get to the house, you don’t really need a car. You can walk or use Breck’s wonderful public transport systems to get you where you want to go.

Finally, the owners are really great to work with—informative and very responsive to questions you might have or issues that might arise.

Big, Updated Mountain Home in a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

I visited this rental with my son and had an amazing time! The house was clean and ready for us when we arrived, plenty of bed rooms and space for our large group. My first impressions was the perfect mix between its contemporary look and amenities (unique design features, TVs and electronics, kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances), and classic mountain home feel.

There are many spaces to relax in this home, numerous sitting areas, a hot tub, and even a disc golf basket in the back of the property which my son enjoyed. The views were breathtaking and the location is perfect: a quick and easy walk (5 minutes) to the heart of downtown Breckenridge, but far enough away to feel isolated from the noise and activity.
