About Bill Handley

Kathy and I had looked at many resorts such as Snowmass, Steamboat, Copper and others before deciding to purchase in Breckenridge. We loved the feel of a real town and the short commute from Denver Airport. Unlike many homes we have upgraded it so that it feels like a upscale home in the Mountains. If you like the Ritz or Hyatt, you will love Bear Haven. A short 75 yard walk puts you at trail for Lower Lehman which goes by ski school and directly to the Quicksilver lift. In the Summer, you have dozens of beautiful hikes filled with wild flowers within a few short miles. If you have a non-skier with you, they have a lot of fun things to do in the area. We hope that you are our guest!!

Bill Handley purchased this house in 1997

Why Bill Handley chose Breckenridge

Bear Haven is located in Warriors Mark West which is a ski in/out neighborhood full of million dollar homes nestled in a forest of lodge pole pines with views of the Breckenridge Ski ara and Mount Baldy. Winter or Summer, Bear Haven is a beautiful and fun place to vacation at.

What makes this house unique

Bear Haven is a luxury, upscale home. New Kitchen, baths and a total renovation. The Bear and Mountain theme really puts you in a vacation mode. But if you have to work, there is WiFi access with a great stereo to listen while you work. Beautiful Ski in and Out neighborhood from Peak 9 and 10. About a 100 yard walk to the trail leading to Lehman.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a few days in January for a family vacation. What a wonderful place to stay! Everything was well kept, well stocked. Great layout, not too bad of a walk to get to a place to ski to the slopes. The owners were wonderful. Would highly recommend this place!

A great place in a great location

  • 5 of 5

I only have good things to say about this place, and the owners who rented it to us. It started out being good, before we even got there. We travel extensively, we have discerning tastes and high expectations. Bill, the owner, more than exceeded those. The place was clean, comfortable, well-appointed, and thoroughly supplied, from the linen closet to the kitchen pantry. Televisions in all the rooms, wifi with a good signal, well-stocked kitchen pots and utensils. Not too much of anything.Nicely, elegantly, thoughtfully decorated. Lots of space. Three spacious bedrooms with lots of space and storage. I said before it was good before we got there, and here's why. After Bill and I agreed that I would rent his place, he made sure to send me the access information well before we received. He didn't just tell us about getting in, he recommended the type of car for the area, and restaurant names, and THEN, he sent us coupons for ski rental discounts, and recommended the BEST way for us to avoid being affected by the altitude, including the names of good medicines to take! This is INSANE attention to detail regarding the comfort of your guests! The house is close to everything. You can go out every day and fine good meals for breakfast lunch and dinner. But because we enjoyed the place so much, we went to the nearby grocery store (which Bill told us about), stocked up, and cooked every day. The last thing I'll say about Bear Haven is, I absolutely knew how enjoyable and comfortable Bearhaven was when I realized that, as we drank coffee and talked to each other, we were doing most of that hanging out in the kitchen, just like at home, because it felt like someone had trusted us enough to leave us alone in their home. And that's what it was.

Comfort in Breckenridge

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our stay in Breckenridge, very close to the center, had wonderful views of the mountains from the front yard. The house was well stocked and very comfortable, worked out wonderful for our family of 5. After a long day of hiking and sight seeing we relaxed in the hot tub. The foxes were our morning amusement as we had our coffee, they came around every morning for their daily feeding of eggs from the neighbor.

Perfect Vacation Home!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently took our family to Breckenridge to escape the Texas heat and get some much-needed family vacation time. We could not have been more pleased with this house. The house is absolutely beautiful and the layout is terrific. The house is in a gorgeous neighborhood and within walking distance to some great hiking trails. There is so much to do in and around Breckenridge, and this house is in a great location to access so many fun activities.

Bill was exceptional in sending us valuable information, making sure everything was to our liking, and making us feel right at home. The worst part of the trip was when we had to leave. This house was wonderful and we can't wait to come back. I would highly recommend Bear Haven to anyone looking for a vacation home in Colorado.

Great place!!!

  • 5 of 5

A group of us signed up to run the Spartan Beast in Breckenridge and we needed a place where 8 of us could stay comfortably. This place was perfect for that amount of people. The house was gorgeous and was in great shape. We put the hot tub to use after the race and it helped us recover for our white water rafting trip the next day. Bill was great to work with from the beginning. I'd recommend this place to anyone that doesn't want to stay in a standard hotel.

Great for a family ski trip!

  • 5 of 5

The layout of this house is wonderful. The great room in front is cozy and the gas stove makes it toasty. Each one of the bedrooms is a master with large comfortable beds and privacy for all. The kitchen is beautiful with its new hickory cabinets and stainless appliances. Easy to cook and clean up. We loved the ski in/ski out feature as we could get to Peak 9 easily, except for one day when there was deep powder and we were the first ones in the morning. Love the hot tub for soaking and the birds at the bird feeders. Thanks Bill and Kathy for sharing your lovely home!
