4 Bedroom, 5 Bath Lodge on 17 Acres with Mountain Views in Every Direction.

The warmth and ambiance of Rivertree Lodge will make you feel right at home from the moment you step inside. Set on 17 acres of lush aspens and blue spruce with the beautiful Blue River just out your back door, miles of biking trails out your front door, and 3 major ski resorts just minutes away, you are in the perfect mountain paradise! Spacious and inviting, it boasts large hand-hewn logs, stone fireplaces, warm woods, and comfortable furnishings throughout. Rustically elegant finishes are obvious everywhere from the hand-scraped hickory and slate floors to the custom iron and stone work, granite countertops, copper ceilings, and lovely woodwork.

Rivertree Lodge is ideally located just 5 miles from Breckenridge ski resort, 6 miles from Keystone, and 7 miles from Copper Mountain. Just a 5-minute walk from beautiful Lake Dillon and surrounded on all sides by glorious mountain views, you can start your days by stepping out the back door for some world-class fly fishing, and end your days by the cozy fireplace! Miles of bike trails are accessible right out the front door. Or if you prefer a more leisurely vacation, you can idle away your hours in the hammock or on the wooden bench swings nestled down by the river, or enjoy a good book and a cup of hot chocolate! The Blue River meanders through the property, inviting you to enjoy its serenity and beauty.

The main floor has a vaulted ceiling, huge stone fireplace, and amazing floor-to-ceiling views of the Blue River. It also has 2 game tables, a big screen HD TV, and a lovely antique piano, which was originally the bar piano in the old Leadville Saloon and was played by Doc Holliday! The kitchen and dining room open off of the great room, creating a comfortable flow and a feeling of openness. The dining room has two walls of windows overlooking the river, a lovely copper ceiling, and a large table which seats twelve. With additional tables and chairs you can seat 24 for meals. The kitchen boasts warm alder wood cabinets, rustic ceiling beams and granite countertops, along with top of the line appliances. There are two dishwashers, making kitchen cleaning a snap! In addition to the large refrigerator/freezer in the kitchen, there is a second downstairs for extra food storage. The sound system allows you to use your own ipod or iphone to play your favorite music throughout the main floor, as well as on the deck and back patio. Sitting on the back deck, with its dining table, large gas grill, and comfy chairs, you can enjoy the sounds of the river and the scent of the blue spruce and pine trees.

Ideal for families or groups, Rivertree Lodge can sleep 20 comfortably. The master bedroom has a king size bed, gas fireplace, HD TV, and private bath. With french doors opening onto a balcony, you can close your eyes each night to the lullaby of the river singing you to sleep. The guest room has a queen bed with attached bath. There are also two bunk rooms with hand-scraped aspen log bunk beds. The first sleeps 8 and the second sleeps 6, and each has its own private bathroom. In addition, there is a queen size sleeper sofa in the loft. The loft, with a lovely view to the mountains on one side and the river on the other, also serves as a cozy library/study.

The gameroom boasts a big screen HD TV with theater-quality surround sound. A DVD library is available for viewing, and there are also video game consoles and games, including Guitar Hero. A large poker table will provide fun evenings of friendly competition playing cards or boards games!

The complimentary Summit Stage shuttle bus stops at the corner, making it easy to get to any of the area ski resorts or other destinations without having to drive or park. In addition, there are shuttle services available from Denver International Airport right to your doorstep. Nearby activities include nordic skiing, ice skating, tubing, hiking, picnicking, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, and sailing. Beautiful Breckenridge golf course is just 3 miles down the road. You are just minutes from fabulous restaurants, delightful shops, the Silverthorne Outlet mall, and movie theaters. The surrounding towns boast numerous festivals, concerts, art shows, and markets. The old mining town of Breckenridge will charm you with its twinkling lights reflecting off of the snow in winter and its baskets full of vibrant flowers in the summertime.

About Holly Lewis

Rivertree Lodge is not just a house to us - it is our vacation home-away-from-home! We want all of the amenities and comforts of home when we come here, and we want you to enjoy them as well. We hope you'll enjoy Rivertree Lodge and feel at home there as much as we do!

Holly Lewis purchased this House in 2007

Why Holly Lewis chose Breckenridge

We love the Colorado Rockies! The beauty at any time of year will take your breath away, and there is always something fun to do! The Breckenridge area is the perfect mountain escape, with something for everyone. But we always say it's also the best place in the world to do absolutely nothing! After searching all over Colorado for 5 years to find the perfect property, we purchased this land and built Rivertree Lodge. The location could not be more perfect! With 17 acres right on the Blue River and mountain views in every direction, you feel that you are in your own secluded piece of paradise, yet you are only minutes from all of the amenities of a vibrant ski town. Summer and winter, there is so much to do in this area, and Rivertree Lodge is easily accessible to it all!

What makes this House unique

Rivertree Lodge has the unique advantage of being centrally located to all the amenities of Summit County while still allowing you the peace and privacy of being nestled in 17 acres of beautiful blue spruce and aspen trees. There is no more tranquil sound than the Blue River tumbling over its bed of rocks, calling you to fly fish out your back door or singing you a lullaby as you drift off to sleep in your comfy hammock. If lake fishing is your preference a 5-minute walk will bring you to the shores of Lake Dillon. You will enjoy breathtaking mountain views in every direction, and you have the convenience of the Summit Stage bus stop nearby. Miles of bike trails are just out your front door, splitting off in 3 different directions for endless hours of biking fun. Within a few minutes’ drive you can be skiing in Breckenridge, Keystone, or Copper Mountain, and just a bit further down the road are Vail and Beaver Creek. The summer boasts endless fun activities such as picnicking, hiking, horseback riding, whitewater rafting, free outdoor concerts, markets, art shows, and a fantastic golf course just 3 miles from your front door. Year-round you will enjoy delightful shops in Breckenridge and Frisco, and a great outlet mall in nearby Silverthorne. Rivertree Lodge is the perfect spot for your mountain vacation!

                                                            • Fly fishing right out the back door, and miles of bike trails beginning at the edge of the property make this a perfect place to vacation. In the winter you have your choice of ski resorts just minutes away.

                                                              Beautiful lodge in a great location

                                                              This is a truly beautiful house. It has amazing decor, multiple rooms for large social gatherings, a large kitchen and dining room, and a great number of beds for people to sleep in. This last part was particularly unique based on my experience in various lodges in the area. There are lots of beds! Highly recommended.

                                                              Chic winter moments with good friends!

                                                              This house was perfect for our ski trip with good friends. The owners were quick to respond and helped us with anything that we could need. Great location and perfect distance from the mountain. Perfect for your apres ski moments!! Will definitely be back here!

                                                              Beautiful home - great for large groups

                                                              Lindsay L.

                                                              This home was gorgeous and located in the perfect area to access the Town of Frisco and Breckenridge. We had 15 guests there for a couple of days and had plenty of space. The kitchen was well-stocked - we ended up making most of our meals in the house so it helped to have a kitchen that had everything we needed. The hot tub was a great added bonus - we loved spending an evening in the hot tub after a long day of running around.

                                                              Our only concern was that it snowed 5-6 inches the night before we left to head back to Boulder. We planned to leave around 11:00 a.m. and I assumed the driveway would be cleared by the county by then. I was told by the property manager that that was not the case. I asked if there was a shovel, ice melt, sand, or anything else to help us at least get out of our parking spots. I was told there was nothing like that on the property except an odd shovel or two that we would have to look for. We found one so I spent an hour moving snow out from behind our parked cars so we could get out. It worked out okay but it would help to provide several shovels, ice melt, and sand for folks who are staying in the home over the winter months.

                                                              Beautiful home and property. Great for a group

                                                              A group of us went for a week to celebrate a friend’s birthday. The home accommodated all 15 adults very comfortably. It is spacious and well designed. The kitchen is fully equipped with a dinning area that allowed us all to eat together. The property is stunning with a stream in the backyard. It’s a short hope to downtown Breckinridge. If you like to ski, snow tube or simply sit by the fire, I highly this recommend this property. I would love to go back in the spring/summer and visit the nearby lake. I hope you have an opportunity to enjoy his experience.

                                                              Large home perfect for large family vacations!

                                                              We just loved this home and the location!! Our family of 15 spent Christmas here and it couldn’t have been more beautiful! There was plenty of space for everyone to feel comfortable and the furnishings were so rustic and comfortable. We found the spacious kitchen well stocked with everything you need to season and prepare meals. I can’t say enough about what a wonderful experience we had here. The caretaker is super helpful and the owners were also friendly. Thank you for sharing such a beautiful home with our family for the Christmas Holiday!!

                                                              Great Family Gathering Spot

                                                              We rented this house over Thanksgiving for our extended family of 17. It was perfect! The house provided ample space for sleeping and large, cozy common areas. We never felt on top of each other. The kitchen was fully equipped and made preparing and serving a party of 17 Thanksgiving dinner a breeze. If you have the means, I highly recommend it!

                                                              Beautiful, warmly inviting log home on 17 acres right on the Blue River! Ideally located only 5 miles from Breckenridge ski resort, 6 miles from Keystone, and 7 miles from Copper Mountain. Fly fish right out the back door and enjoy miles of bike paths out the front! This is the perfect mountain getaway - you'll feel totally secluded sitting on the back deck listening to the river tumble by as it heads to lovely Lake Dillon, just a 5-minute walk away, while being just minutes from all of the fabulous restaurants, shops, theaters, and other amenities available in Breckenridge, Frisco, Dillon, and the surrounding area. In the winter enjoy world-class skiing and boarding, nordic skiing, ice skating, tubing, and the beauty of the snow-covered peaks. In the summer you can enjoy countless activities such as hiking, biking, golf, alpine slide, picnicking, horseback riding, whitewater rafting, and sailing. And of course, there's not a lovelier way to while away the hours than sitting by the cozy fireplace with a cup of hot chocolate on a chilly evening!
