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.

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
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.
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!

We had a great trip, the condo is fabulous! Very upscale and yet feels like home. It was clean, obviously well maintained and had all the extras you would need for a vacation.
This condo beyond exceeded our expectations. The views we're incredible, the condo was absolutely stunning, clean and beautifully decorated. Unfortunately peak 7 was still not open to the public so we couldn't use the true ski in ski out feature of the property, but the gondola was right outside the building and was about a minute ride to peak 8. We used the gondola to get to the town as well, and it was about a 5 minute ride to town. I can't wait to come back!
Awesome with the set up of wifi and tv. Location is great and enjoy hot tubs and being right by lifts
Our family of 4 stayed at this condo over Thanksgiving break. It was the perfect size and location. Access to Peak 7 is right outside the door and the gondola ride to Peak 8 takes about 3 minutes. The condo was well-equipped with all cooking utensils. You do hear a little noise from the gondola operating in the morning, but we did not find it to be bothersome. The views are lovely and the common areas are very nice as well. The owners have obviously put a lot of thought into their furnishing of the unit, including TVs in all rooms with DVD players. There are also some family games in the unit. We were surprised that the fridge was completely empty (we always leave behind staples like butter, ketchup, etc.) but that may just be the cleaning policy. The pantry was stocked with basic spices, coffee filters, napkins, etc. Also there was a basket with coffee and popcorn on the counter upon arrival. The washer/dryer is also nice to have as we washed all the towels mid-week. We had a wonderful time and felt very comfortable in the unit. We hope to return next year.
No snow during our post thanksgiving stay at this crystal peak lodge condo. The space was spotless upon arrival. The entertainment was well supported with great wifi and streaming options. This condo had an amazingly well equipped kitchen with higher end appliances. The furnishings was comfortable and spaciously arranged. The bedding was comfortable and bathrooms generous in size with elegant decor. A lack of snow limited the purpose of our visit but the comfort of this shangri-la muted any disappointments we had over the skiing situation. I should mention that the owners were fantastic about keeping me abreast of check in procedures and all information related to our stay. I would definitely stay at this condo again.
This unit is absolutely beautiful. Spent a girl's weekend here. Sat on the deck every morning to talk over coffee. The fall view was spectacular. Would highly recommend.
