About Carol Cannon

In 2009 the new Bristlecone Lodge was built specifically for short term vacation rentals - private suites and lots of room for large groups to get together, but also lots of room to be 'alone'.

Carol Cannon purchased this house in 1987

Why Carol Cannon chose Breckenridge Area

Our family has had annual family reunions at the Bristlecone Lodge since we bought it in 1987. So when we rebuilt the new Bristlecone in 2009 we knew what amenities worked for large groups and families (we have 21 in our family) - lots of room to spread out, but also lots of room to be together, as well as easy access to ski area with plenty of ski and snow board storage for equipment, hats, gloves, wet boots, etc., lots of entertainment for big and little kids - pool table, movies and outdoor fire pit, hot tub and a large private yard for snow forts and snow man building and sturdy materials that can hold up to a lot of use.

What makes this house unique

The Bristlecone Lodge is a luxury home, complete with many amenities unique to Breckenridge due to size, location, views, lot size and layout which is perfect for large groups and gatherings. This is a big house, but it is warm and welcoming.

Bristlecone is a fabulous home. Everything about our stay was perfect. Ski in/Ski out, close to the town of Breckenridge, great kitchen facilities, fantastic places to hang out with friends like the pool table or in front of the huge fireplace. It could not have been any better. And thanks for all of the personal touches - helping with grocery store locations, restaurant choices, lift passes, etc. It really meant a lot to us that you would be so helpful as it was our first time in Breck. We are booking it again for this coming year! It is so big it could be considered a lodge :)

Skiing not necessary!

  • 5 of 5

I am not a skier so hanging out at Bristlecone was all I needed for a fabulous week in Breckenridge! I loved all the windows and therefore the gorgeous view of the mountains and quaint town. My family and I were lucky enough to experience the first snow of the season as we sat around the outside fireplace and observed some of the mountain wildlife. I loved the large common area and kitchen since eating family dinners is always a favorite time for us while on vacation. Thank you Carol for stocking up our refrigerator so we had some groceries waiting for us when we arrived! The only sad experience with Bristlecone was that it was already booked on our last trip to Breckenridge so we had to stay elsewhere. Bristlecone is always our first choice!

beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were lucky to have stayed at this home for a special birthday celebration. It is quite spacious for a large group of people and everyone gets to enjoy their own privacy (several gorgeous master suites) while also gathering together in the main living areas for playing games, eating meals, etc. It is beautifully decorated and is in the perfect location for skiing right out your door. Truly spectacular and a Breckenridge gem.

great place

  • 5 of 5

unbelievable home--fully stocked kitchen, every room high quality finishes and details! the amount of space in this home could easily accommodate a very large group--there were 12 of us and there was still room for 12 more! Fantastic home --the only note is it is NOT ski in and ski out. It is a walk through some woods to the lifts--very close and you can't find much better in breck--but not typical of other ski resorts with true ski in out. (Breck doesn't have this unless you are at a condo at base) the ski rooms to hold all gear is amazing, washer dryers up and down etc etc. bus line and gondola are very short walk from house if you want to go to town. No need for a car! Carol also shared a personal shopper so groceries were there when we arrived. Worth every penny and she even will do other grocery runs at no delivery charge after first. Carol was very accommodating when we had a small issue which was resolved promptly with great service. i cannot recommend this home enough--thanks for a great week

Incredible Property

  • 5 of 5

Not only was the location perfect, the house was perfect! The house was just beautiful and accommodating in all ways with breathtaking mountain views!! The owner was wonderful and thought of everything! You can't get much better than to be close enough to walk to the slope AND just a short ride to the town’s market, restaurants and shops. It was so relaxing to be here...we got the total effect of the mountains here but were close to everything. Had a blast at this lodge, LOVED the fact that the kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to cook with (they thought of everything), felt like home & the beds was sooo comfy. We were lucky enough to stay here this winter vacation for unbelievable skiing, and loved every minute of it! The home is nicely decorated and maintained, down to every detail! A fireplace in almost every room and pool table downstairs great for entertaining our group. This house has everything you need-even separate locker rooms for your ski gears with dryers/warmers! It is well appointed, and spacious enough to accommodate several families without feeling crowded. The living area was expansive with a beautiful fireplace has majestic mountain views. Hard to beat the decks at this house, which overlook the mountains, perfect for barbeques and soaking up the sun. The hot tub has its own deck and was perfect touch at the end of the day. We’ve stayed at numerous ski destinations, hotels, and VRBOs, and this is by far our favorite!! Thanks Carol, for letting us stay at your wonderful home!
