Luxury Lodge Tucked Between Blue River & Mountain Views – A Haven for Families

Once our family decided to buy in Breckenridge, we hit the ground running. We searched for two years to find the perfect year-round lodge close to town but immersed in nature.

A couple of places came close; most just didn’t have everything we were looking for.

Eventually, after a heated family debate, we decided our best option was not to buy our dream lodge after all, but build it.

And so Cold Water Creek Lodge was born – a 5-bedroom family-friendly lodge just 5 miles from Breckenridge.

Building our ideal place gave us (and our guests!) two BIG benefits.

THE BEST PIECE OF LAND IN BRECKENRIDGE

Cold Water Creek Lodge sits on 13 acres of riverfront property caught between stunning views of the Quandary Peak out the front door, and Red Mountain and the Blue River out the back door. Wildlife sightings – elk, beaver, moose, deer – are common. You’ll forget you’re only 5 miles from town.

Here, you can fall asleep to the rush of water over rocks, and wake to morning coffee with a view of the mountain and deer grazing along the riverbank.

You can step out the back door and be ten feet from fly fishing in the river’s cold and pristine waters. Out front door, and you’re in prime hiking territory with Summit County’s best trail – the McCullough Gulch Trail – winding through the property.

We installed two hot-tub and fire-pit areas (in both the front and back of the lodge) for your family’s own private après-ski and full enjoyment of the magnificent scenery through all four seasons.

In winter, seven world-class resorts are within an hour drive. Even better, WE PROVIDE TWO LIFT TICKETS A DAY as part of your stay. (Inquire for more info.)

Warm your ski boots in our boot warmer for toasty toes.

And after you return from the slopes, defrost in the 8-person hot tub with views of snow-capped Quandary Peak. Or duck inside and enjoy the heat from the floor-to-ceiling fireplace in the Great Room.

In fall, the whole scene bursts into yellow as the aspens play out their autumn drama. Light a crackling fire at the fire-pit, gather around the Adirondack chairs and enjoy the crisp Colorado air.

In spring and summer, the mountains present endless activities and deep green vistas.

A FAMILY-FRIENDLY PLACE

Building also meant we could design the house, from the ground up, to be ideal for families. We love hosting multigenerational family reunions or multiple families traveling together.

Kids and dogs find plenty of space to run around, and the private and paved road with few cars keeps them safe (and also means quick, traffic-free trips into town.)

We provide pack-n-play and a high chair, too.

We even gave kids their own section of the house, called the Bunkhouse, with a gameroom where they can decamp together for video games on the LCD flatscreen with Nintendo Wii, movies on Netflix, or a game of air hockey. Add a few mugs of hot chocolate and you’ll have some happy kids.

The attached bunkroom with three bunk beds provide a summer camp setting for telling stories by flashlight past bedtime. They get their own attached bathroom, too, and in the gameroom, there’s also a couch that folds out into a queen bed.

The living areas are open to each other, and cozy for conversation, shared meals, and poker in the adult cardroom. The windows in the Great Room overlook a spectacular view of Quandary Peak.

The kitchen has high-end GE Monogram appliances (including 2 dishwashers!), granite countertops, and heated floors made from reclaimed pine found right here in Summit County. Flip some pancakes and serve them at the granite breakfast bar!

EVERYONE GETS A GREAT BEDROOM

No need to rush to claim the best bedrooms when you arrive. We made them all pretty great. All have their own private, attached bathroom. If you’ve traveled as a group before, you know how essential that is!

We also provide cozy comforters and butter soft sheets and flatscreen TVs in every single room.

BOOK TODAY

We’d love to help make your Breckenridge getaway wonderful, so let us know what we can do.

There is no slow season at Cold Water Creek, thanks to our year-round amenities and activities. We encourage you to book today, using the yellow “Book It” button to the right. Thanks!

Why Mark Ronchetti chose Breckenridge Area

After looking all over Summit County and finding some great locations we settled on the McCullough Gulch Reserve to build our Colorado vacation home. The Blue River is literally ten feet behind the house. The best hikes in Summit county border the property. With 13 acres you can stretch out and get away from it all with Breck just a few miles down the road. As great as many areas around Breck are you will not beat this location or this house. The views are classic stunning Colorado with all the conveniences of being right next to one of the best ski towns in North America.

What makes this house unique

The Cold Water Creek Lodge sits on 13 acres of Blue River frontage just south of Breckenridge. You can be skiing Breckenridge within 5 minutes of leaving the Lodge. Don't want to drive? No problem we are on the bus route right to the ski area. Out the front door of the Lodge you can hike the most stunning trail in Summit County, the McCullough Gulch Trail. This hike features breathtaking waterfalls and high mountain lakes. Out the back door of the Lodge you can fish the Blue River. You will have two miles of river all to yourself.

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

I can not fully express how delighted we were with our stay at Blue Rive Lodge. It is awesome! The lodge is perfectly located, away from the tourist parts of Breckenridge. It is located right on the Blue River and that was so cool! The river was really flowing because of the ice melt. We loved spending time sitting on the patio, fire pit going and listening to the river rush! The house is immaculate. The bedrooms are large each with its own bath. We had three families and 5 grandchildren. The bunk house was perfect as the six bunks are located next to the game room with the air hockey. We never heard the kids! Truly, the house was perfect. Extra things like boots warmers and dryers were unexpected and well used with damp feet after hiking in some snow left on the trails.The owners were attentive to our needs, which actually were none! Everything you would need is right in the house. We loved our time there and hopefully will return ASAP.

Amazing Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely beautiful. The setup of the house was perfect for multiple families and friends. We loved the open concept of the great room and kitchen and deck. There is plenty of seating for a large group to visit and entertain themselves. The house was very clean and well-equipped with everything you could need for a comfortable and enjoyable vacation. The views from this property are simply breathtaking, we had a blast playing in the snow!

Highly recommended and would look forward to staying again soon.

Second Stay, More to Come

  • 5 of 5

We arrived for our second spring break stay at CWC. Driving to and walking into the house felt like coming home. CWC is set in a beautiful location, with the Blue River running behind the house and amazing views of Quandary Peak out the panoramic front windows. This house is wonderfully maintained and stocked. (much better stocked than some other VRBO's we have visited). It is easy to find and access, even on snowy days. During our stay there was over 40 inches of snow. Each morning, the street and driveway was plowed well before we needed to get out. And by the early morning, the porches and walks had been shoveled. Our two labrador retrievers love the area. The older one taking it easy on the plowed areas. The big younger one, bounding through the snow.

We loved the stay so much we tried to extend for a few days, but unfortunately, the house was booked.

We will return to CWC many times.

fabulous ski house!

  • 5 of 5

We had three families (6 adults, 7 children) and had more than enough room for a wonderful ski vacation near Breckenridge.

The house was perfect with four bedrooms all with attached baths, plus a bunkroom/bath/activity room just for the kids.

We used not one, but both of the hot tubs for post-ski relaxation. The kitchen/great room was awesome for group meals and games/charades at night. One of the highlights of the house is the huge storage area for ski boots, enough cubbies to store everyone's gear, plus a massive boot/glove warmer.

I don't think there is anything we wanted for all week. Amazing place! Thanks!
