About Robert Merrill
After a career in international development, having lived in some six countries and worked in several more, our family has grown up around the world. In Breckenridge, we now have a second home too enjoy all the scenery and outdoor activities in the Colorado mountains. You will too!
Robert Merrill purchased this House in 1991
Why Robert Merrill chose Peak 8
Having had a condo on lower Four O'clock Rd. for several years, once the house came on the market, we felt it was a perfect place to retire. Little did we know we could/would also share the attractions of our Colorado home with others.

Great Vacation Home
We were very happy with the Irie House for our family vacation. The location near 4 O'clock run and Snowflake lift are ideal. The large living room on the main floor and the family room downstairs gave us the space we needed to all be together! We used every inch of the house and found it very welcoming! We marveled at the beautiful sunrises every morning from the kitchen table and enjoyed the hot tub and view of the mountains after a great day of skiiing!
Great place in a great location
The pictures and listing were very accurate for this property. Deck and view are awesome and the place is very big. Ski in ski out was very good. Walk across the street, put on skis and ski down to Snowflake lift. Take off skis and walk across the street and get on the lift. Very easy and you could ski home right up to the street so all you have to do is cross the street and you are home. Pool table needs new bumpers but owner said he would replace. Kitchen was well stocked with good utensils, knives, great toaster and other appliances. Overall a very good property for the space and money.
Great rental in Breck!
We had a wonderful time staying at the Irie House for our vacation to Breckenridge! The location was great- very easy access to 4 o’clock run and the snowflake lift. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, and all the necessities to make breakfast and some dinners in. The house had plenty of space for our party of 10 (with 4 kids). We particularly enjoyed the hot tub with awesome views of Breck. During our stay we got 20 inches of fresh powder and the driveway, steps to the front door, path out to the hot tub was all cleared for us each day. And the owner, Robert, was very easy to work with. We would love to come back for another trip!
Thanks for the great review, Marianne! Glad everyone could have their own space, loved the hot tub, steps and deck were shoveled, etc., etc. You cetainly had a lot of snow during your week, so glad everyone parked up off the road...driving down the driveway or into the garage is a sure way to get stuck as previous guests did...but Jorge, our handy plow man got them out.
Happy skiers in Breckenridge
Our group loves Breck! We have stayed in several different properties over the years. The location and layout of this property really worked for us. We loved the ability to walk across the street and directly access 4 O’Clock Run. Skiing home was also a breeze.
The house had plenty of space for our group of 6 adults and 4 teens to hang out without being on top of one another. The hot tub was relaxing after a long day skiing.
The owner was very responsive when we had some trouble getting a car with AWD up the driveway after a snowstorm. We highly recommend parking at the spots at the top (just past the driveway).
We cooked in quite a lot during our stay and the kitchen was adequately outfitted, but missed a few small items like good pot holders.
The decor in the house was eclectic and a bit dated, but functional and clean so this wasn’t a big drawback for us.
We would gladly stay at Irie House again. Great location, good layout, and responsive owner! Thanks, Robert for sharing your home with us.
Excellent stay in Breck
