About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Experience for yourself all the activities of a world class resort built around the best old-west ski town. Come visit Breckenridge, still lined with quaint Victorian homes and buildings, where yesterday’s gold boom is now replaced by wonderful restaurants, lots of shopping, all sorts of nightlife, and ski trails that run into the heart of town. So come play in Colorado’s renowned powder snow or get away to some beautiful alpine summer days.

Crystal Peak Lodge, completed in 2008, represents Breck’s finest Ski-In/Ski-Out residences and it's ON the ski slopes at the base of Peak 7. This spectacular forested setting is a gateway to the tranquility of Peak 7, the hubbub of Peak 8, and the perfect mountain town below.

More specifically, Crystal Peak Lodge is nestled between the Independence SuperChair lift on one side (about 30 yards) and the BreckConnect gondola on the other side (less than 30 yards). Although above the town, the lodge is self-sufficient with an in-house ski/board rental shop, lift ticket office, day spa, fine dining at Sevens restaurant, and private ski lockers. To access the mountain, simply step out the backdoor to board Peak 7’s Independence SuperChair or jump on the gondola for a very short ride to Peak 8, with its variety of restaurants, the ski schools and the Rocky Mountain and Colorado SuperChair lifts. In the other direction, the gondola whisks you to historic Main Street in Breckenridge. From Crystal Peak Lodge you’re also on cross country ski and snowshoe trails (summer hike and mountain bike trails) that lead through Cucumber Gulch and other more remote areas of White River National Forest. Look out for the resident moose!

As you walk into Crystal Peak Lodge, heavy timbers, stone, wrought iron and lots of glass set the tone for this Five Star mountain retreat. Initially you’ll be struck by the grand staircase in the entry leading to a cathedral-like gathering room filled with cozy sofas and tables and overlooking the ski slopes through a wall of glass. Separated from this lounge by a massive fireplace is a game room with billiards and TVs. Next door is the state-of-the-art fitness facility with its stationary bikes, treadmills, a steam room and other fitness equipment all overlooking, through more picture windows, the huge heated outdoor patio with two large hot tubs and a fire pit on the ski slopes! For your convenience, the lodge also provides wireless high-speed internet and a 24 hour front desk.

Our particular unit is an elegant residence with a similar rugged, yet refined personality. It features heavy alder doors and trim work; multiple slab granite countertops and stone flooring in the entry, kitchen and baths; rustic cherry cabinetry; distressed wood and bent wrought iron furnishings; and a moss rock fireplace for your cozy evenings. You’ll love the gorgeous views from the balcony overlooking the town of Breckenridge, the Blue River valley and the Continental Divide. Also for your convenience, our condo includes an in-suite washer-dryer set; two huge bathroom suites; and over 1250 square feet of spacious living area with separate thermostats for each room. If you cook, or just like to entertain, you’ll love the fully equipped gourmet kitchen with its open design and the latest stainless steel appliances.

The master bedroom boasts a pillow-top king-size bed while the guest bedroom is furnished with a pillow-top queen bed. For your comfort, both bedrooms provide a humidifier, a fan, a goose-down comforter and goose-down pillows (as well as man-made pillows and extra blankets). Both bedrooms are also equipped with a flat screen TV with DVD and satellite. The sofa-sleeper in the living area makes an exceptionally comfy second queen bed. The living area is completed with an entertainment center with a DVD player, satellite and CD stereo, and a large flat screen TV mounted above the moss rock fireplace hearth.

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, if you choose not to drive or take the gondola, a free and private shuttle picks up at the front door to take you around town. For further excursions, the Summit Stage, a free county wide bus system, has a hub adjacent to the lower gondola terminal near Main Street.

As our guests of Crystal Peak Lodge, the facilities of our sister lodges are also free for your use. At One Ski Hill Place, just 500 yards by gondola or walking, enjoy the indoor pool complex with a dry sauna, the theater rooms or the mine shaft bowling alley; or for a more outdoor experience, Mountain Thunder Lodge, at the bottom of the gondola, offers a year ‘round heated OUTDOOR swimming pool with adjacent hottubs and a heated pool house for an easy change of clothes. Imagine the fun of a snowball fight in a warm swimming pool, or just letting the snowflakes land on your nose as you relax in a hottub!

We love pets, but please, NOT in this condo. The entire complex is non-smoking.

To book the condo, please see our calendar and rates below, then email or simply call us. Although not necessary, a menu of housekeeping services is available upon request.

For another wonderful property that is a little less expensive, please see our Mountain Thunder Lodge condo listing at VRBO #80369. This site also contains many comments from our many previous guests (from North America, Europe and Australia).

Thank you. Your hosts,

David & Diana

About David & Diana Studebaker

We are a family of 4 living in a suburb of Denver. We both work full time while our daughters are full time students. We love outdoor activities and so fell in love with Breckenridge years ago. Now we are fortunate to own this gorgeous second home there. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

David & Diana Studebaker purchased this condo in 2008

Why David & Diana Studebaker chose Breckenridge Area

This condo is special not only for its beauty and many amenities, but especially its location. It's tranquil setting on the slopes is wonderful in both winter and summer. Plus, there are SO many things to do around Breckenridge, and many just out the door of the condo! Hiking, biking, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, trout fishing... the list goes on and on.

What makes this condo unique

We love relaxing in the coed steam room or the huge outdoor spas after a day of skiing/riding, then enjoying a nice meal at the on-site restuarant, Sevens. Guests at our condo may also enjoy free use of all the facilities of our sister lodges. At One Ski Hill Place, just 500 yards by gondola or walking, enjoy the indoor pool complex with a dry sauna, the theater rooms or the mine shaft bowling alley; or for a more outdoor experience, Mountain Thunder Lodge, at the bottom of the gondola, offers a year ‘round heated OUTDOOR swimming pool with adjacent hottubs and a heated pool house for an easy change of clothes. Imagine the fun of a snowball fight in a warm swimming pool, or just letting the snowflakes land on your nose as you relax in a hottub!

Superb condo that is TRUELY A Ski in/ski out. Very convenient; ski lockers -10 yds. from Peak 7 Lift

  • 5 of 5

The owners are exceptionally easy to work with and very friendly. The condo is excellent. We have come back for last two years and will also rent the same condo in 2018. Very well furnished and easy to get to from the outside or garage. Plenty of indoor parking. Hottub, sauna and facilities are excellent. Spacious rooms with everything one would want or need.

Primo location and accessibility to the slopes.

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend renting this condo should you decide to ski Breckenridge. I think the space would be cramped with more than 4 people (adults), however. Beds are comfy, bathrooms are roomy, kitchen is well-equipped. People who like to ski during the day, and prepare meals throughout the day and evening, including dinner, you might run out of glasses, coffee mugs and silverware unless you run the dishwasher twice a day (minor complaint). Since we were a group who did prepare all of our meals in the condo, pots and pans were not a problem, but, on occasion, we did not have enough med-large food preparation bowls or smaller sized casserole dishes (again, a minor complaint). Two things to consider when renting this condo are 1) the base of Breckenridge is 10,000ft. If you've never been at this altitude, research altitude sickness and prepare for it. It can really lay you low for the first couple of days, then all is well. 2) The sofa bed in the living room is very uncomfortable to sit on and try to read or stream movies on the TV. Consider this review of the condo 4-1/2 stars, 1/2 off for the sofa.

The couple who own this condo are, as other reviewers have commented, extremely responsive to any questions or concerns you may have. Everything went smoothly from booking the unit, making payments, and checking out. This adds the 1/2 star I took off for the sofa. I would definitely rent this condo again.

Absolutely Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our trip was perfect. We were able park in garage upon arrival and never had to use our car again. Rental of skis and lift ticket were located in lodge. We used the lockers provided and stored our equipment there, so just walked out of our unit, put on equipment and jumped on lift for skiing. Took the free shuttle form front door wherever we wanted to go anywhere in town. Could not have been more convenient. The unit was also just as described: beautiful, comfortable, convenient. The unit was properly furnished with comfortable beds, tv's in all rooms, and beautiful views of the mountain overlooking the town. Owners were very accessible if needed and great to work with. Can't wait to return to same unit.
