About Tom and Myra Kloppel, Managers
Tom was born in Denver, CO, and began skiing when he attended college at Colorado State University. (That's Tom, enjoying some cross-country skiing, also available in Breckenridge -- Hey, didn't we tell you the dress code is casual in Breckenridge!?) Tom obtained his Master's Degree at CSU, then went to Purdue for his Ph.D. in bio-chemistry, and that's where he met Myra, a Purdue undergraduate raised in Columbus, Indiana. They married in Indiana, then came to Colorado for work, Tom's extended family (Colorado pioneers who came here in covered wagons!), and the mountain lifestyle. Together, they've raised two children, who also enjoy the beauty of Breckenridge and the thrill of skiing and snowboarding in Colorado's gorgeous high country. Tom has been a downhill ski instructor at Breckenridge Ski Resort for many years, in addition to currently owning Colorado Real Estate and Property Management, Inc., where he helps people buy and sell homes in Summit County (which includes Breckenridge, Keystone, Frisco, and more) and in the six-county Denver-metro area.
Tom and Myra Kloppel, Managers purchased this Condo in 2011
Why Tom and Myra Kloppel, Managers chose Peak 8
We knew as a young married couple that someday we wanted to purchase a vacation home in Breckenridge. But we didn't want just any property; we wanted the best ski in, ski out location in the entire town. That's why we scrimped, and saved, and finally were able to purchase this spacious condo in the best location on the Breckenridge Resort mountain! No kidding -- it's a flat terrain walk across the street to the Snowflake lift. Other homes in the area may brag, but they're a difficult walk up the hill to the chairlift. We're right there -- the easiest walk to a chairlift in the entire Breckenridge ski resort, and the easiest access at the end of the ski day to our front door! We also love the fact that our skis hang on ski racks right inside our front door -- which means no long, time-consuming walk down a maze of hallways to get to a ski locker room, as required at the Beaver Run Resort rental condos. With our condo, you put your skis on your shoulder 6 steps from our kitchen table, and walk out the front door, straight to the chairlift! It's quick and easy! Plus, if you own your own ski equipment, it's very soothing to see that your equipment is safely hanging on pegs inside our front door, within your eyesight! But as we've said before, if you'd rather rent your ski equipment from Charter Sports across the street from our condo, they will store that equipment free each night for you, so it's your choice! Winter or summer, spring or fall, this condo is awesome!
What makes this Condo unique
We fell in love with this property first because of its location. (For years we'd drive to this condo complex, park in the parking lot for a minute or so, and dream of one day owning a home here.) Our condo with its king-sized bed is the most spacious 1-bedroom floorplan in the entire town of Breckenridge (the bedroom is huge -- not like those condos where you can barely walk around the queen bed)! Plus the views from the living room window make you feel as if you're in a secluded mountain chalet -- just sit in one of our recliners and enjoy views of the mountains, trees, and snow! (There's a clear view of Colorado's pristine beauty, with no other buildings blocking it from our windows!) You can hot tub indoors or outside at our place, and barbecue outdoors, or cook in your own well-equipped kitchen with granite countertops, watch the flickering flames of the gas fireplace, watch your favorite TV shows, and hike, kayak, bicycle, snowboard, and ski! (Or just shop and eat at great restaurants!) We love it here and you will, too!
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
We enjoyed this beautiful condo and the great location near the river and the Snowflake lift and trailhead. Walking distance to town was also a plus. The condo was very clean and beautifully decorated. Thank you to Tom and Myra for providing this lovely mountain getaway.
everything was great!
Had an amazing time and this condo was perfect for us. The pictures don't do it justice as it has been updated and looks even better in person. The owners are great at giving you a ton of info and are great to deal with. Would highly recommend!
Long weekend stay
Great space for two people. Close to town and grocery. Enjoyed the fairy forest walk.
We spent three nights in this wonderful condo. We have stayed in many VRBO properties, and I have not seen another unit so clean and well equipped. Great location.
Hi Dave & Phyllis,
Thanks so much for your terrific 5-star review, and for mentioning that you've "stayed in many VRBO properties, and have never seen another condo so clean and well equipped"! That's high praise, and we want all of our guests to know we inspect our condo often to make sure it's in excellent shape for our guests! We're glad you enjoyed it, and glad to hear you also loved our condo's fabulous location in the ski mountain town of beautiful Breckenridge! This is the best vacation town in Colorado. Come back soon, winter or summer!
Myra & Tom
We thoroughly enjoyed this condo. It was very tastefully decorated, and was spotless.
We wouldn't hesitate to comeback. Loved it!
Hi Dennis & Darlene!
We're so glad you enjoyed our condo, & thanks so much for taking the time to write this excellent 5-star review! Dennis, you called us the first night of your stay to ask a question, & you mentioned then that our condo was "charming"! What a delight to hear that, especially since we just did some major upgrades & redecorating! The striped wallpaper is gone, & the kitchen & dining room have been painted a calm wheat color; we also had our electrician add canister lights in the kitchen & master bedroom. We bought a new king-sized sleigh bed frame & a new king mattress & box springs. We bought a new suite of GE slate appliances -- & did more we haven't mentioned! We haven't had time to put our new photos of these changes in our VRBO ad yet since we've been so busy. We also check our condo often to make sure our maid service is keeping things nice for our guests. Thanks for mentioning that it's spotless! Come again soon!

Nice Place, Nicer Location
Most reviews talk about the great location for ski season, and I can see why, right next to a chairlift. But it is a great place for summer as well. A beautiful high running creek crosses the property, sound great with the windows open. Trail heads start at the property. Quick walk to the center of main street. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend this property
Also in Breckenridge, Colorado, there's ice skating at the Breckenridge Ice Arena, dog-sled rides, sleigh rides, a separate Nordic (cross-country) skiing facility, seasonal ice sculptures, and hours of shopping and restaurants, plus music concerts during summer months and a fantastic July 4th Fireworks Celebration! Walk 3.5 blocks to town, or take the free shuttle bus, called 'Free Ride' that picks you up in front of our condo complex! Ride the 'Free Ride' bus to Breck Station (5 blocks away), then transfer to the 'Summit Stage' bus that takes you to the Silverthorn Outlet Mall in Silverthorn, approximately 20 minutes' drive! Don't miss the International Snow Sculpture Championships each January; incredible artists create sculptures out of humongous ice blocks! In Aug., this is the perfect condo if you want to watch the action of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge! See the world's top cyclists at close range! No matter when you come to Breckenridge, it's a wonderful time!
