Wonderful summer getaway!

  • 5 of 5

A spacious and beautifully decorated house that immediately feels like home -- comfortable and cozy. The magnificent pool table and many TVs (but particularly the one in the great room where the whole family hung out and watched the Rio Olympics) provided hours of evening entertainment. Easy access to trails, Lake Dillon, Frisco and Breckenridge kept our family of seven hiking, biking, boating and just enjoying a lovely summer week in cool Colorado. The kitchen is fully equipped and makes preparing any meals at home easy and fun. The fifth bedroom does not have a window, but that didn't bother its occupant who slept like a rock after all the activity of the day. Cheryl is pleasant and aims to please.

Perfect property!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here before - the location, layout and quality of furnishings - not to mention the view - have won us over as return customers. The view is breathtaking and we love the fact that we can walk to town. Did I mention the hot tub - which is maintained meticulously?

The pictures don't really do the house justice - warm and inviting with views from all windows. Everything from the furnishings to the A/V gear, bedding and kitchen fixtures is top quality. Location is also a big plus - walking distance to town and close to all ski areas. The house was also immaculately clean when we arrived. Pricey - but worth every dollar.

Unique property!!!

  • 5 of 5

There were 10 of us staying in this wonderful home and all different ages. Everyone from the small grandchildren to the oldest loved this home. It is a comfortable ,well thought out, and beautifully decorated mountain home. Lots of fun and easily accessible to the towns of Frisco and Breckinridge. Located in a beautiful area and quiet. I loved the placement of the bedrooms and the laundry room , you never disturbed anyone while they slept. Everyone had their privacy and it was a joy to stay here with so many people. Cheryl was wonderful and was very helpful if you needed her. It was a wonderful vacation home. We would love to stay here again.

Thought I'd hit a tree and gone to heaven.

  • 5 of 5

Holy cow-I came out for a weekend of skiing and were blown away. When I was told about this place I imagined another secluded cabin in the boonies, an hour and a half from anything good. When I got there I realized how wrong I had been.

Wireless, two huge tv's, heated floors and garage stalls, and to top it off I was minutes away from a ton of ski areas. Me and my friends (3 of us) almost didn't want to get up to go skiing in the morning in favor of hanging out in the house all day-but that's not what I came here for.

Ski all day, hit the bars in Frisco, Silverthorne or Breck at night, finish the evening off in the hot tub. When can I go back to Colorado?
