Overview

Breckenridge Area Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible Queen Sofa, 2 Baths, Sleeps 4-6

Mountain Thunder Lodge is one of the most luxurious condos in Breckenridge and at the great location. Nestled in pines only 1 ½ blocks from Main Street (known for its restaurants, shopping and night life), the lodge is SKI-IN and SKI-OUT (Gondola-OUT). The Gondola Ski Back trail is just out the back door and the BreckConnect Gondola is only 200 yards away via the Gondola Ski Back trail. The gondola provides fast and easy access from the condo to the heart of the ski area at the bases of Peak 7 and Peak 8 where you will find on-mountain dining, ski schools, rentals, etc, and several other lifts including the Independence SuperChair, the Rocky Mountain SuperChair and the Colorado Superchair.

Stepping into this impeccable mountain lodge you will be welcomed by a grand entry of slate and log. Just beyond the front desk a large gathering area tempts you to relax by a massive rock fireplace with several inviting overstuffed sofas and chairs. Your private equipment (ski) locker is just around the corner and a hottub, overlooking the Gondola Ski Back, is just out the back door.

Your suite is only a few steps away by elevator and opens into your lodge-like living area with a balcony to enjoy the gorgeous view, beautiful moss rock fireplace and an open gourmet kitchen with its granite counter tops, slate floor and knotty pine cabinets. The master and guest bedrooms, as well as the two large bathrooms, will greet you with this same warm and well appointed look and feel.

The master bedroom boasts a king-size pillow-top bed while the guest bedroom is furnished with a queen pillow-top bed. Both bedrooms are equipped with a satellite TV/DVD player. The sofa-sleeper in the living area makes a comfy second queen bed and is complemented with a large flat screen TV with DVD player, and a CD stereo with an iPod/MP3 connection. This unit is also equipped for high-speed Internet (WiFi B/G or Ethernet cable) and telephone service through the front desk.

The east-facing windows and balcony from this second floor condo provide unobstructed and gorgeous views of historic downtown Breckenridge, the Blue River Valley and the Continental Divide just beyond. As a corner unit, you'll have additional inspiring views to the south.

Although the location of this condo makes it easy to just leave your vehicle parked for days (if you even bring one), the free and private underground parking also makes it easy to use your vehicle. For added convenience, a free and private shuttle picks up at the front door to take you around town. Also, the Summit Stage, a free county wide bus system, stops across the street.

As our guests of Mountain Thunder Lodge, the facilities of One Ski Hill Place (including the indoor pools, theater, and bowling alley) and Crystal Peak Lodge (with its billiards room and steam room) are all available for your use, free of charge.

The entire complex is non-smoking and does not allow pets.

Please see our pricing and calendar, below. Also note the comments from our guests not only from North America, but also from Europe and Australia.

Your hosts,

David & Diana

About David & Diana

Hi,

We are David and Diana living in Arvada, Colorado (a suburb of Denver.) We are working parents who have always loved the mountains as a cool summer get away and as a winter break to ski & snowboard with our two daughters. We hope you enjoy our home away from home as much as we do.

David & Diana purchased this condo in 2006

Why David & Diana chose Breckenridge Area

As you know, there are many ski resorts in Colorado. We chose Breckenridge for our second home / condo investment because we just love the town. Unlike the other “man-made” resorts, Breckenridge is a real town with a real (long) history that you can see when walking Main Street. The town's natural beauty is unsurpassed. Also, unlike most other world-class resorts, this town is very relaxed and unpretentious in feel and prices.

Specifically, we chose Mountain Thunder Lodge for many reasons… Number 1 is the ideal location relative to the Skyway ski trail, the BreckConnect gondola, and Main Street. Please read more in the condo’s description. Secondly, we love its upscale and well-maintained amenities and conveniences. It is certainly one of the nicest, most popular, and most highly rated condominiums in Breckenridge.

What makes this condo unique

The benefits of Mountain Thunder Lodge are too numerous to list here, but a few of the more obvious benefits to visitors include… In the winter, simply jump on the BreckConnect Gondola across the street for direct access to either Peak 7 or Peak 8. Then ski to your back door at the end of the day (or for lunch) instead of taking a bus, etc. In the summer, just hike or bike from the back door of Mountain Thunder Lodge for gorgeous nature adventures. Regardless of the season, Main Street is an EASY 5 minute walk for dining, shopping and entertainment, and when you return to the condo you have amenities such as 3 hot tubs and an outdoor heated swimming pool to relax with, or just snuggle into the well-appointed residence. Some say, “It’s all good”…, at Mountain Thunder Lodge “It’s all great!”

Cheers,

Fantastic get away

  • 5 of 5

My family couldn't have been happier with this property, its proximity to downtown Breck, and (from my son's perspective) the pool! We had great weather and easy hosts in David and Diane. Thanks a lot!

Nice Condo In Breckenridge

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this condo on our recent stay in Breckenridge.The unit was set up nicely and was very comfortable for our family of four. David and Diana (the owners) were very responsive to any request. The lodge staff was always helpful and the Lodge is very conveniently located. We stayed in the summer and opened the windows for fresh air and a little cooling. The road traffic was a little noisy with the windows open but when closed not a problem at all. If you are considering a condo rental, this unit is highly recommended.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed a lot of places and this was one of the best.We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We were so close to everything that we only used our rental car once. condo was comfortable and quiet,with nice views. Process to obtain keys was easiest we have dealt with.The highest praise we can give is we will stay again if it's free next time we plan a trip to Breckenridge.

Perfect location and great sized apartment. Would happily go back.

  • 4 of 5

Apartment has two good sized rooms, two bathrooms and a communal sitting / kitchen area. Great size for our family of four. Could sleep six easily but only issue would be having 6 comfy seats to sit on. The location of the condo is literally ski in (and we were last week of the season!). The gondola across the road is only a five minute walk. - mind you the shuttle will take you there easily and takes only a minute. We also utilised the amenities up the road in the sister condo and they were great too. All in all a fantastic apartment - we would definitely book again. The outdoor hot tbs and pool were fantastic too.

Our only critisism (but honestly it is not an issue) is the sofa is not the comfiest!
