About the property

townhome, 2700 sq. ft., 3 bedrooms, Sleeps 8, 4 bathrooms

As you approach River Shores Lodge, located just minutes north of the town of Breckenridge, its striking appearance and traditional mountain design of stone and massive wood beams will give you a feeling of warmth and comfort amid the surrounding mountains -- and that’s only the outside.

Step into this mountain dream home and take in the masterfully crafted wood beams, frames, windows, and furniture. As you explore your new home away from home, take a moment to sink into the leather couches in the main living area and admire the gorgeous views of Breckenridge, the warm natural lighting, and the signature spruces just outside the window. On chilly nights, gather around the stone fireplace with family and friends or watch a movie on the mounted flat-screen TV, and you’ll wonder why you’ve ever stayed anywhere else.

The elegance continues into each of the three bedrooms, comfortably sleeping up to eight guests. In the Master Bedroom, rise from the king-size bed and step onto your patio for more spectacular views of Breckenridge, the sound of the running Blue River, and morning mountain sun. Fall asleep to the crackle of fire in the stone fireplace, and escape to the sanctuary of the artfully designed ensuite bathroom. Just upstairs, the second guest suite is warmly decorated to mirror the mid-19th century heyday of luxurious ski lodges, and features views of both the mountains and the neighborhood’s namesake river. Enjoy a flat screen TV and a private bathroom whose wood artisanry is as sophisticated as anywhere in the home.

A unique jewel of the home is the queen-size bunk bed in Guest Bedroom 3. With a sturdy, natural wood design, this bedroom offers an adult twist on the typical mountain home bunk room, and also features a private bathroom and flat screen TV.

Back downstairs, the kitchen offers an exemplary display of design and function. There’s plenty of space for cooking and gathering, and it has been outfitted completely with professional-grade Viking appliances. It’s a masterpiece of stained wood and stainless steel, and earns its spot as the heart of the home. Finish your day on the patio, where you can watch the sunset from around the fire pit, or while soaking in the hottub as your dinner cooks on the outdoor Viking grill.

As inviting as this home is, the nearby attractions are irresistible, too. Walk to the front of the Shores community to catch the six-minute free shuttle into town or to one of many nearby breweries and restaurants, or drive three minutes across the way over to the Breckenridge Golf Course for an 18-hole adventure. A day trip to Frisco is just a short jaunt away, unless the mountains of Breckenridge call you in for a powder day. Close to the action but far enough away for a quiet family getaway, River Shores Lodge has everything you need for an ideal Breckenridge holiday.

During the winter months, availability of the fire pit is weather dependent.

There is construction adjacent to your home, which may be disruptive during your stay.

This was an excellent home with nice amenities in a quiet neighborhood. Perfect for our family.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this home. It was spacious and private. We liked the layout. It is close to town, the Blue River is right behind it, and it boasts great views. It is well worth the money to have a nice home to stay in on vacation. I would definitely stay here again if we came to Breckenridge.

Really nice place

  • 4 of 5

Loved the place. The river did not have much view of or access to but not a deal breaker. Great place for a big family vacation of a few couples retreat.

True Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This home was so very nice for our four adult and one child needs. It was comfortable, very well furnished, and made us feel at home. It was so nice that I couldn't wait to get back after our daily outings to relax the rest of the day away. This is a must place for us to stay when in Breckenridge.

BEAUTIFUL modern home on the Blue River!

  • 5 of 5

This modern home was PERFECT for my family on our recent trip to Breck. Every modern convenience you can think of, and well stocked with supplies you'd need for a stay of a week or less. Fantastic layout for families, with the ability to put kids in upstairs bedrooms and still be able to relax downstairs while they're asleep. Very high-end home, with upscale touches in every room. Beautiful views of Breckenridge mountains from the patio, as well as the first view you get waking up in the master bedroom king bed.

About a 5 minute drive from downtown Breckenridge, which we actually enjoyed, being a little bit away from the crowds yet close enough when needed. We enjoyed exploring the Blue River right in the back yard. Very peaceful to sit out on the upstairs balcony and hear the sounds of the river going by.

Pictures are pretty accurate, this home feels like a perfectly maintained model home. Everything about the stay was great, look forward to coming back again!
