Evolve Vacation Rental

Next to perfect.
The property was perfect for our party of 6 + dog. My only minor complaint is that the window to the central bathroom seemed to be broken in an open position, so it got quite chilly when showering in that restroom. There was ample room for lounging, gathering to eat, and plenty of comfortable bedding options. The property and location we're also great I highly recommend this rental.
Christina, we're so glad to hear this property was an ideal fit for your group. Since your stay, the homeowners have replaced the windows and the partially open window has been taken care of. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back for another wonderful stay! Best, the Evolve Team
Great Weekend in Breck
Roomy cabin for 8 people. Short 10 minute ride from Breck. Modern appliances. Shower pressure was a bit weak, but we're not picky. Hot tub was a great temperature. Modern kitchen appliances. Never heard a peep from the people downstairs. Would recommend to people looking for an affordable place to stay near the ski resorts, and not looking for anything fancy. Hosts were super communicative!
Incredible location for mountain access.
Overall our stay was enjoyable. We only needed the cabin to sleep and eat, otherwise we were on the mountains. I've emailed the property owner of some minor issues we encountered so they can be addressed. It's a five star location for sure if you want to be out of tourist town.
I stayed here last week with 2 of my girlfriends and we had a wonderful time! There are people living on the bottom floor but other than the cars in the driveway we never would have known they were there they were so quiet. The house was so clean, comfortable and spacious! The hot tub felt great after a long day of hiking! At night we could see the entire milky way and every other star imaginable! Thank you for such wonderful accommodations!
Looks better in the pictures, but still nice
The photos make this place look like a steal but I'd say the value is in the "normal" rating. It's also not obvious that there's a couple folks that live in the first floor. It's completely seperate and they were very courteous and no bother, but could be a surprise if you didn't realize it. Location is convienent as it's pretty close to town yet also close to some nice trials. McCoullough Gulch was an awesome trail not to far away.
All outdoor deck was just painted upon arrival, windows taped up and all patio furniture on ground, yet caretakers never apologized nor brought furniture up. Just not a vacation spot I'd ever recommend
Amy, thanks for taking the time to leave this review. We are very sorry to hear about the issues you encountered! We have passed your feedback along to the homeowner so any necessary changes can be made. Thanks! Best, The Evolve Team
Since the town of Breckenridge pre-dates the ski area by 102 years, the place blissfully lacks a master-planned feel and has authentic, historic, small-town charm. You may feel away from it all tucked in the White River National Forest in Breckenridge, but you are really in the epicenter of Colorado's best!
You are within 30 minutes from 5 other major ski areas: Vail, Keystone, Arapahoe Basin, Copper Mountain and Loveland!! Plus, the huge shopping center Outlets at Silverthorne are a mere 20 minute, stunningly scenic jaunt!
In and around Breckenridge, a pervasive network of historic mining trails offer fabulous chances to explore the valley on a mountain bike, a dog sled, snowmobile, cross-country skis, snowshoes or even feet! Other surprisingly year-round activities include fishing, museum and historical sites tours, hot air balloon rides and mine tours. You can get private, guided tours on virtually any activity imaginable!
During summer, climb a nearby 14er (14,000+ foot mountain) at Quandary Peak. Bike rental shops will point you to the paved bike path along the Blue River stretching for miles of scenic beauty on the way to Frisco. From Frisco you can bike to Keystone, around Lake Dillon and even to Vail Pass!
Breckenridge is serious about summer fun with the Gold Runner (raised rail) Alpine Coaster, hit howling speeds on the famous Alpine Slide, plus take scenic chairlift rides, pan for gems, go bungee jumping, play miniature golf, go white water rafting and take a 4x4 off-road tour!
Did you know The Town of Breckenridge owns a Jack Nicklaus-designed, 27-hole golf course? Not only have numerous national and regional honors have been bestowed on the course, but the golf ball flies farther and straighter than at lower elevations, since there is less air resistance. As summer wanes, taking a drive on Boreas Pass Road during the fall is one of the best places to see fall color in the Colorado �� perfectly timed to be the weekend of OktoberFest! Don't miss Breckenridge's many fun and wacky festivals throughout the year!
Despite the appreciation for preserving the old town area, massive ski area improvements continue to enhance the skier experience at Breckenridge. With a new bridge, now you can ski right down to Main Street to Colorado’s largest and best-preserved historic district. The Breck Connect Gondola is right next to the free bus depot, which loads in the middle of the parking lot! Breckenridge banished the death marches schlepping gear!! You'll find everything from steep, above-timberline chutes and bowls to groomed greens and everything in between. There are five terrain parks and half-pipes for skiers and boarders, with the terrain park called “Freeway” rated as one of the best in the United States!
Truly world-class cuisine awaits at many of Breckenridge’s 60 restaurants, plus a vibrant arts scene, numerous spas, and over 200 stores. Downtown Breckenridge shops offer everything from extravagant to oddball. Don’t forget - if name brands are your thing, the expansive Outlets at Silverthorne are only minutes away. Breckenridge somehow blends the indulgent with the funky and friendly that make this town a must-see (and do) for ANY season!
