Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

What makes our totally remodeled mountain home so special?

• True ski in – right to the elevator, if you like

• Quick lift access – walk to gondola or free bus right in front

• Four queen beds – handcrafted Western pine logs

• Great location – one block to historic downtown restaurants, bars and shops

• Western décor – antiques, photos, cowboy chaps, Indian crafts & more

• Elevator & hot tubs – you’ll be happy for them at day’s end

Our spacious condo is in a great location for both skiing and nightlife. The layout works well for families or couples: two private suites, each with full bath & each with two queen-sized handcrafted Western pine log beds. This is our second home and we’ve outfitted it like a home – not a motel. A few other highlights: three LED TV sets with DVD players, Old Hickory log cabin dining chairs, full size washer and dryer, 112 channel HD cable TV, gas fireplace, quick recovery hot water heater, new living room furniture, ultra-quiet dish washer, secure WiFi, gas fireplace, and more.

Our slope-side location directly on the Four O’Clock Ski Run makes getting on and off the slopes a delight. After you’ve enjoyed your runs, you’ll be soaking in one of our hot tubs while other skiers are still walking back to their condos. Ski access is by free bus right out front to all lifts and other resorts, such as Keystone, Copper Mountain, or Arapahoe Basin. Or head for the gondola (2 blocks) or Snowflake Lift (1200 feet). For fun in the evening, you are only a three minute walk from the heart of downtown.

The kitchen is well-equipped to eat in, but restaurants and bars in all price ranges are within two blocks. An outdoor gas grill is convenient for your use, and a supermarket is a few blocks away. The floor-to-ceiling, south-facing windows provide warmth and a view of Mount Baldy from the private balcony.

Your car is protected in covered parking within the building and the elevator is a big help in getting your belongings to the unit. A ski closet immediately by the front door protects your ski equipment. Enjoy our snow sleds, books, games and movies.

The fun Western décor will provide plenty of conversation. Along with Western posters, old cowboy photos and antique photos of Breckenridge, you’ll find authentic Indian handicrafts, Cowboy chaps, hats and spurs, and a real deerskin Indian shirt. Check out the Clint Eastwood movie poster in Portuguese.

International visitors love our place -- 2016/17 will see guests from New Zealand, Australia, and England.

Ask about our weekly rate discount.

And, please, for the comfort of all our guests, NO pets and NO smoking in the unit, on balconies, or on the grounds. Sawmill Creek is a smoke-free facility.

About Steve Browning

Colorado is our summer home and we love it here. After growing up in Colorado, we were finally able to return after living in the East for many years.

Steve Browning purchased this condo in 2001

Why Steve Browning chose Breckenridge Area

Breckenridge is probably the most fun town in Colorado with wonderful downhill skiing, snowboarding, cross country, skating, and snow shoeing. Tons of restaurants and activities. You'll love it as much as we do.

What makes this condo unique

Location, location, location -- ski to the door, free bus to all slopes right out front, one block to historic downtown.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was my first time using VRBO and what a great experience. Steve and Anne were very responsive, informative and personable. They even sent a "things to know" with directions, favorite restaurants and ski rentals...we used just about all of it. Their condo was fantastic and incredibly convenient to the slopes...practically skied into the elevator and the shuttle to the gondola took 5 mins or less. The condo is nicely decorated and easy to lounge and nap in. My favorite part was the nicely the kitchen was equipped making it really easy and fun to do home cooking. I recommend this to anyone headed for Breckenridge.

Wisconsin Family Breck Vacation-March 25, 2017 Stay

  • 5 of 5

The room was perfect in reference to the owner's desciption on VRBO and was very clean. It is a block from downtown and 5 minutes bus ride to the gondolas or to the base of peak 8 to ski at Breckenridge. Bus stop was right outside the Sawmill Condos. We could not ski to the condos since it was spring and the 4 o'clock was pretty thin with snow. Easy to park and getting to town was simple since it was only a two blocks away. I would recommend Fatty's Italian Restaurant. Outstanding Lasangna at a very fair price!! Ski lockers are right outside your condo door and made it easy to store at night. The bathrooms were tight. One person at a time for sure. Living area was great to spread out for a larger family of 6 or 8. Beds were queens with good mattresses. Bedrooms are tight. You could have 8 people in this condo but it would be pretty tight I think when it comes to bathrooms and sleeping space. Thank you for a great stay for our family of four.

Owner's Response: Thanks John for pointing out our great location. Our condo, at 1200 ft.², is among the largest two bedrooms in Breckenridge. River Mountain Lodge across the street is between 780 ft.² and 900 ft.² for a two bedroom.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay during our 4-day-ski trip at Breckenridge.

The condo provided everything we need - it definitely made us feel like home. We were especially impressed with the range of condiments and sauces etc in the kitchen. Small details count!

It's conveniently located, so that we could easily walk to restaurants in town and catch the free buses to ski lifts.

Overall, we really appreciate the owners' consideration for everything in the condo!

Perfect location and a real home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

The property has everything you need. A complete kitchen. A locked storage area for ski equipment. Bus stop right outside to get to mountain in minutes and walking to all the shops and restaurants. The best part was we all felt we were staying at the home of a friend. We would love to stay again!!

Great condo, ultra convenient

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Breckenridge in this condo. It is so convenient to Main Street and is also on a couple of the free bus routes. The condo itself is comfortable, well equipped and quiet. Would definitely stay again (except it's such a long way from Australia!).

Condo is well kept. Great place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

We traveled with two kids(3 yrs old and 5 months old) and the weather was such that it snowed a lot while we were there. Great for the mountain, not so good for the kids or our level of comfort having them outside and fearing they would get sick. That being said, we never felt like we had cabin fever. TV saved the day on the days when we felt home bound as well as some things we brought to keep our 3 year old busy. We stepped out on to "Four O'Clock Run" to build a snow man and play in the snow with our 3 year old. I recommend bringing a few favorite DVD's if you want to watch one. Steve and Anne have a few too.

It was still early in the season I guess so "Four O'Clock Run" wasn't actually open yet so might be wise to make sure it is open if you plan on using it to ski/board home after a great day on the mountain. Children's Museum also wasn't open until the last day we were there due to it still running fall hours.

Location was great, 1 block from Main Street helped a lot. Our experience would have been completely different if we didn't have our kids their. As a parent, the next time I go, I'm staying in a place located immediately next to ski rental, food, mountain access. Lodge seems the best place.

Nothing against this condo, just a freshman parent mistake that was made harder because of the weather and how it was made harder to do anything because of all the snow on the ground and no easy way to walk around town with two kids in freezing weather.

Bed's were comfortable, water was HOT, temperature in rooms got to where we wanted it after the first night, and the views from the balcony were great.

Can't say enough about how nice the condo was!

Thanks Steve and Anne for providing us with a comfy place to recharge our batteries and hang out.

Owner's Response: We are happy you enjoyed our place, but we understand as grandparents how difficult it is to take a 5 month old baby and a 3 year old on a ski vacation. Even with restaurants two blocks away, buses directly in front, and ski rental across the street, the Breckenridge winter is very hard on the tiny ones. Please try us again when they are a bit older.

Right here -- ski right to the condo

The gondola is three blocks away, although some guests walk there, it

can be a difficult walk in snow and ice carrying skis and boots. We prefer the free full size bus that picks up immediately in front of the building and takes you within minutes to the base mountain. The Snowflake Lift is 1200 feet, but that is a slight uphill walk which many find difficult given the altitude, snow, ice, etc.
