Overview

Blue River House Rental Photos and Description

House/Cabin/lodge, 3 Bedrooms, 2 living areas, 3 Baths, Mountain Views Hot Tub!

Our family friendly home sits in a beautiful, serene mountain setting with amazing views! We are only three miles to downtown Breckenridge and the slopes.

Our 2,100 square foot home has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, two living areas, and an updated kitchen with stainless steel appliances.

The kitchen is stocked with All-Clad pots and pans, Crock pot, pancake griddle, coffee/tea maker and we keep spices, condiments, coffee, tea, hot chocolate. Everything for the gourmand to cook a delicious meal.

There are flat screen televisions in both living areas and in each bedroom. You will also find DVD players with movies, a Wii game system and games, air hockey, board games and lots of books. No one should ever get bored here! The downstairs living room has a cast iron fireplace; a great way to snuggle up and watch movies together.

Outside keep your feet warm as you walk outside on the heated mat as you slip into our Arctic Spa hot tub. Fire up our one of a kind, custom made gas fire pit (just like at the ski slopes). Or, relax in the hammock for afternoon naps, multiple deck chairs and a two-seater swing to sit and relax.

You never have to worry about shoveling snow, we we have a company who plows the drive and shovels the deck. You can just enjoy your vacation!

When you leave the cabin, you are only minutes from so many fun and adventurous activities. In the winter, ski or snowboard at Breckenridge (which is only a five minute drive away), cross country ski, snow shoe, snowmobile, or catch a ride on the free Summit Express Shuttle service you pick up in Breckenridge and go ski at Keystone, or Arapaho Basin. Copper Mountain and Vail resorts are all a short drive as well.

After a day on the slopes you can hit some of the great restaurants in town. Not in the mood to ski or snowboard? How about a sleigh ride or even snow mobile tour? Or, you might take the kids (or just the young at heart) to the great tubing hill in Frisco. Forget your winter coat? There is great shopping in downtown Breck or even hit the outlet mall at Silverthorne.

During warmer months, there are hundreds of trails in Summit County to explore. You can hike a 14er, bike over the pass to Keystone, go white water rafting, catch a ride on a zip line, learn to fly fish, take a Jeep or ATV tour, tour the local gold mines.

In addition, there is always something going on in town, ice sculpture contests, music and festivals, or spend a day at one of the great spas and get a massage.

About Holly

We are a military family. Matt grew up in NY. After graduating from West Point (Go Army), he spent 24 years on active duty Army before retiring and taking a desk job. Holly is a Texan and went to Texas A&M (Gig Em) and is a real estate broker and renovation designer.

Holly purchased this house in 2009

Why Holly chose Blue River

We chose this location for the proximity to downtown Breckenridge yet far enough from town to enjoy peace and quiet. We are very close to ski lifts, Quandry Peak and Goose Pasture Tarn (local lake 1/2 mile from the house). We are only four houses off Highway 9 (Main road through town). We are minutes from the ski lifts and tons of great hiking, snow shoeing, cross country skiing and biking. It is a wonderful get away. One of the most scenic mountain areas in the US with unlimited outdoor activities: Snow Skiing, snowboarding, tubing, mountain biking, fishing, whitewater rafting, snowmobiling, 4-wheeling, hiking, nature, ice skating and more.Truly a beautiful area.

What makes this house unique

Two living rooms (one upstairs and one downstairs) means the adults and kids can have their own spaces. Game-room with TV, DVD player, air hockey, Wii with games, books, and board games. There are TVs in every bed room and in both living areas. Free high-speed internet and WiFi use and a desk top computer for your use. Large outdoor deck with hot tub, large gas fire pit, hot tub, and custom made log chairs. Tree house for the young or just young at heart! Three miles from the ski lifts. We have everything you need for your little ones too: high chair, booster seat, toddler table with chairs, sippy cups, bibs, kid friendly dishes, and even a pack n play.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful! Was a huge blessing to our whole family. Never knew life could be this good. We loved our stay here-everything was set up so well. We cooked a couple evenings and even grilled burgers outside for my son's 20th birthday. You have a great place here- it is all so beautiful. Thanks for taking such care to make this a great memory for us!

This was a great place, especially with 3 school age children...

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with three kids and the cabin had many things for them to do as described. The owners were very helpful and responded quickly with anything we asked. It was very homey and had everything you would want. Great spot. We would stay again.

Ideal Family Cabin-Awesome location

  • 5 of 5

My family of five and grandpa had an amazing week here in March 2016. The cabin is nestled in the woods, but with easy access to the main highway which is only minutes away from downtown Breck. The owners have created an updated, comfortable and immaculate vacation home with great attention to detail. The beds were warm and comfortable, the home was spacious with an upstairs family room where the kids enjoyed their time at home, while the grown ups relaxed downstairs. The kitchen was already stocked with some basics so cooking family meals each night was a breeze. If we didn't ski each day all day (snow was amazing) we would have played with the kids outback in the snow with sleds. This cabin has a lot to offer it's guests. We'd love to come back!

Wonderful

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I brought our 5 year old to see snow for her first time, and stayed at this beautiful Cabin. We loved how close it was to everything and how the cabin felt so cozy. Thank you both!!! I would definitely recommend to anyone looking!

Owner's Response: We really appreciate the kind words and were so flattered when you all asked if we would consider selling our cabin to you. We really enjoyed getting to know your family. I do want to clarify the 4 star review. I asked Annette what we could have done to earn a 5 star review and she told me, "the only reason we didn't give you a 5 star review is because you aren't downtown on Main St". Some of our best ideas for improving our home have come from our guests, but we can't do anything about the location. We have always advertised that we are three miles from downtown. ;-)

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (including 2 children under 4) took a quick trip up to Breckenridge and stay at the Matt and Holly's cabin. The cabin was gorgeous inside and out, and couldn't have asked for anything more. Lots of toys, and games for the little ones to keep busy, and a complimentary bottle of wine for the adults!! Decor and rooms have been updated. I can't say enough great things about this cabin. We will definitely be making a trip back.

Could not have asked for more

  • 5 of 5

This is an incredible property with the most accommodating owners. The "cabin" has everything you need and is perfect. We hit the first snowfall of the year so enjoyed the hot tub in the snow, explored Breck and hiked our first 14er. Our kids are teenagers and each enjoyed the location, the touches that made us feel comfortable and everything about our trip. Thank you Holly! We can't wait to come back again.

Great location, just like home

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful spot - the house was clean, close to everything we needed, and perfectly suited for our fmaily. My toddlers enjoyed walking around, exploring the area. I liked that the back deck was enclosed, age-appropriate DVDs, the pack n' play, and the kid's table.

It had everything we possibly needed and more. We will be back next year for sure.
