Overview

Breckenridge Area Condo Rental Photos and Description

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

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 purchased this condo in 2008

Why David & Diana 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 just out the door of the condo! Hiking, biking, crosscountry 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!

Beautiful well appointed condo with great views of Breck"s surrounding peaks.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at This Crystal Peak Lodge property for 9 days. It was a wonderful location to retreat from Alabama heat. Just opening the windows brought plenty of cool air, and a great view of the mountains.

The condo was well appointed with high quality appliances, cookware, and cooking utensils. The kitchen was also well stocked with spices and extras that saved money and trips to the grocery. More extras included beautiful granite countertops, a hair drier, magnified, lighted makeup mirror, lots of towels and comfortable beds.

Crystal Peak Lodge had a great steam room, good exercise equipment, and outdoor whirlpools. It also had a shuttle that would take you to town with only a few minutes notice. There was a business center with computer and printer. The elevators were fast, and the underground parking was heated, safe and secure.

Though Breckenridge felt quite touristy, the food and drinks were great. We particularly liked The Blue Stag Saloon. There are so many active outdoor activities available, that you could stay for months and never take the same hike or bike ride, and the views from every angle are hard to beat.

The only drawback to staying at this condo is the altitude. At 10,000ft., it is high. If you are coming from a low altitude, it is imperative to hydrate, eat carbs, remain mostly sedentary and totally sober for a couple days until you have adjusted.

I highly recommend this condo if you are looking for a comfortable, well appointed place in a beautiful area.

Beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

The condo at Crystal Peak was very nice and was just as described in the listing. It was super clean and well maintained. We also appreciated all of the extras there. There was soaps, toilet paper, cleaning products, and spices. There were plenty of pots, pans, glasses and plates. The beds were very comfortable. The only thing that would have made it more comfortable for us was air conditioning. We were having a hard time adjusting to the dry air and altitude being from the south.

The town of Breckenridge was super cute. We enjoyed taking the gondola to Main Street and walking around all of the shops. We had the best burger at Empire Burger. It was delicious! There were also free shuttles available to and from Crystal Peak Lodge. That was nice!

The owner, David was great to work with and very responsive and helpful. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives.

Thank you for letting us stay in your condo!

Stay here - you will love it!

  • 5 of 5

Our party of four had a wonderful weekend getaway and enjoyed calling this condo "home" during our stay.

This particular unit is beautiful and cozy - with all the amenities you could want. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen well stocked. There is a fireplace and a big flatscreen TV. We enjoyed the fitness center and hot tubs - and dining at Seven was very convenient. We parked our car in the underground area of the Lodge and never needed it until we left! The shuttle buses were just a call away to take us into downtown Breck. Our visit took place during the Shoulder Season when the gondolas weren't operating. They will be up and running again soon and are adjacent to this property and a fun option for getting to One Skill Hill Place or town.

We have rented from David and Diana before - they are so accessible and easy to work with. We appreciate all of the information they provide to make the vacation special. This property is fabulous and you will be so happy you chose this rental! We will absolutely return!

Great property with a great location!

  • 5 of 5

David and Diana were an absolute joy to work with throughout our stay at Crystal Peak Lodge and were willing to help with any questions in an instant. The property was absolutely perfect and had everything we needed throughout our stay. The overall lodge has great amenities that made the stay even more fun. We appreciated the personalized touches and the warm atmosphere the property offered. The deck has a tremendous view and lodge is only a quick drive to Main St. I would recommend this property to anyone to rent! It exceeded all expectations!

Easy to find, clean and stocked well

  • 4 of 5

The condo was beautiful. One of my favorite things was the size and the fact that everything we needed was there. We stay at Grand Lodge on Peak 7 every year and while they have what we need usually, the fact that your condo had things like cooking spray and a pack and play was helpful. The only downside to the condo was that there was no indoor pool onsite, but that was easy for us to remedy as we would just walk over to Grand Lodge and use theirs. Great place to stay! We will be using it again in the future and will tell our friends and family about it as well!
