About Kimberly Nieting
We love Breckenridge and the Lodge, spending time with friends and family.
Kimberly Nieting purchased this Lodge in 2012
Why Kimberly Nieting chose Historic District
The Lodge sits in a perfect location to walk everywhere in town - Main Street, the Gondola, shops, restaurants - simply everything!

We loved the home. Very close to town, beautiful backyard and great for our family
Breck family trip
We had a wonderful visit. This property comfortably fit three families with room to spare. The location is amazing and the view of the mountains is breathtaking.
perfect location but needs updates
This was a great location, just about a 5 min. walk to town. The home had plenty of room for everyone who came, but it definitely needs some TLC updates. For example, the washing machine leaked when we were there and didn't wash clothes properly. A few of the doors also got stuck (esp. to the pool room), and the driveway was only about 50% plowed. The TV/cable should be updated as well...standard definition/no HD but maybe we're being picky with that request. When I asked about the door to the pool room not working (we needed to get in there to turn the radio off), the owner told me that she couldn't take care of it because her husband had a softball game in Denver...honestly not a response we wanted. There were no locksmiths in town to help either.
I understand that the town got a ton of snow the week before, but we could only park 2 cars in the driveway, when we could have easily otherwise put 4 in the driveway if it was plowed all the way. The stairs were 100% icy and the back yard was as well. Two of us wound up shoveling the front and back yards while others went out to ski. A few people slipped and fell around the front and back of the house. Overall a good time, but i'd probably give it 3.8/5 stars.
This house is very good for large groups to gather. The location is within walking distance to town and the gondola. The owners were quick to respond and remedy the two issues we experienced on the first day.
I only have a couple of things that kept me from rating this home a five. First, my group goes to a different ski resort every year for a week and this is the first time we have ever stayed in a property that advertises a fireplace, but does not provide any firewood. The owners suggest you get your firewood from the local market, but buying wood in small bundles isn't economical and if you don't have a vehicle it will be quite a lot of physical labor to get enough wood to the house. In the evenings, we love having a nice fire while we sit around and it just wasn't possible this year. It was quite a disappointment. Maybe no houses provide wood in Breckenridge, but this hasn't been our experience at other ski resorts when you’re staying in homes at this price point. Additionally, while there are lots of pots and pans, some of the pans were unusable due to the non-stick coatings being so torn up. They were very disgusting looking. We managed to find one large high side pan and one very small pan that were in good condition and since we only cooked breakfast a few days we managed. If your group plans to cook a lot, I think it would be a bigger issue. Lastly, there was an outside pole light between the garage and street that started flickering at night the last two nights we stayed. It was very difficult for the couple in the king bedroom facing the street to get to sleep with the light flickering every few minutes. We couldn't find a switch that controlled this light, so we couldn't turn it off. We assumed the light was controlled by a sensor to turn on when it became dark.
Beautiful mountain lodge home with lots of room for a big family!
We loved the house and the location, within easy walking distance of Breckenridge downtown. Great for families with small children. Great kitchen for cooking big family meals. Beautiful views of mountains. Mountain lodge feel with lots of rustic charm and warmth.
House as described. Great location.
Comfortable for four adult couples. Bunk room useful for single add-ons or children. Short walk to the Gondola or Main Street. Cable service is only standard definition, recommend packing a Roku/AppleTV/Etc. No bath supplies or dishwasher detergent was a slight inconvenience. Overall a good option if you have a large group and don’t want to rely on driving after arrival.
