About Connie Esch

My sister and I own this property. Our parents purchased the historic house on the west end of the lot in 1969, the year the Breckenridge ski area started expanding. The rental home was built later to accommodate our growing family. We remain seriously addicted skiers and backcountry travelers, and big fans of Breckenridge.

Connie Esch purchased this house in 1983

Why Connie Esch chose Historic District

We love the town of Breckenridge for its many varied activities, and we love the ski area because it is so versatile and easy to navigate. We think our home is in a perfect location.

What makes this house unique

We love our home and we hope you will too! It is comfortable and easy to relax in. We have filled it with things that we know make a ski vacation work. It is removed from the bustle of the condo villages, yet close to activities for everyone. The proximity to the shuttle makes it easy for the teens to sleep in and meet us when they are ready. Our fenced backyard provides a safe place for the little ones to dig and tunnel in the snow.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is our first time visiting Breckenridge. We came with our 1 year-old and 5 year-old. What a great trip! We saw good friends and celebrated their wedding. It was awesome to be all snuggled up and warm while we watched the snow fall. Your house is perfect. The boys were so stoked to find the closet full of toys. We brought none so it was a huge relief and tons of fun. We were Thrilled to find "the lending box." We packed for 70 degrees and were able to enjoy the unexpected snow because we had extra jackets and gloves. Thank you! This is one of our first real family trips that we will always remember. For the last four days we've filled this place with love and fun. Thank you for giving us the memories.

Excellent location, great hosts

  • 5 of 5

We were in town with a group of 6 people total. The Snow Lover House was the perfect place for our group — super close to town, cozy cabin feel, and an amazing hot tub to enjoy after a long day on the slopes. Will be back, if available again!!

Perfect for the 9 of us!

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything we needed, plenty of space for 9 people. Location was great. Easy walk to main street and the lifts. The stop for the free shuttle was very close, but just as quick and easy to walk to the slopes! Thank you Connie!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time in Breckenridge and we loved this house. It had everything my family needed, including a perfect location close to downtown, plenty of space for a family with a mix of small children and adults. Connie was wonderful and very accommodating and made possible for our vacation to be filled with beautiful memories. We are planning our next trip and will definitely book this property again. Thank you Connie! We loved your property!

Christmas to remember

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 stayed at this location over Christmas 2017 and i must say we couldnt have picked a better place .

The house is within walking distance to the ski lifts as well as all the major restaurants and stores within the main town. The house was incredibly comfortable for us and had plenty of activities to keep our 3 kids busy for all 4 days. We will definitely be looking to come back here on future visits and stay in any of the snowlover properties owned by Connie!

Thoroughly enjoyed it.

  • 5 of 5

We found that the house fit our needs perfectly. The kitchen was well equipped, which we needed because we ended up eating every meal there including our Thanksgiving dinner. We decided that with three children 3 and under we would all be happier eating in versus eating out. Everything was neat and in good working order. We were able to use the sleds provided to walk to nearby Carter Park for some sledding. The hot tub was wonderful; very clean and well maintained. We loved the location. We walked through town several times and along the creek. We were thankful for the high chair, two pack n plays, and the stair gate that were provided. The owners were very responsive the one time we contacted them to find out where a couple of items were. We would definitely stay there again.
