About the property

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 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! On the patio just outside the gameroom door you’ll find a hot tub large enough for 8 people...perfect to ease those sore muscles after a long day on the slopes!

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, the Colorado Mountain Express offers shuttle service 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.

Make Rivertree Lodge your perfect winter or summer getaway! So close to everything you need or want yet so private, Rivertree Lodge is the perfect place for your family’s perfect vacation!

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 Area

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 being right on the corner. 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!

Amazing Winter Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group of friends stay here for a weekend and it was an unforgettable experience. It's a picturesque mountain home with a plethora of accommodations. There's a hot tub that has a great view of the surrounding wilderness. This place is the perfect weekend getaway and I highly recommend it.

We celebrated our mother 50th birthday at this lovely property. It was plenty of room for everyone. The house had EVERYTHING we needed to enjoy our stay. We were amazed. We would definitely stay at this property again and recommend it others looking to visit. Just 2-3 miles away from Walmart and a spirits store. We even enjoyed having unexpected company hang out with us (mooses). It was definitely a FANTASTIC experience.

Stunning mountain home in-between Frisco and Breck

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

Very beautiful home with responsive owners and management. Upscale furnishings. Convenient location next to the shuttle. Would definitely rent again.

4 stars because: Dining room lights and upstairs loft lights did not work. There was a horrible smell coming from beneath the sink. Could have used more large bowls and sheet pans.

Impressive but inviting, cozy, and comfortable. Easy to get to, clean, well equipped.

The Rivertree Lodge was a delightful place for my sister and me to celebrate our 40th birthday. The home easily accommodated all 16 adults in our group. The location is perfect - right near skiing, shopping, restaurants, and more. The home combined with its location has something to offer anyone - from the winter sports enthusiast to someone seeking a cozy hideaway from the elements. Every room in the home was comfortable and clean, with ample seating and sleeping arrangements for a large group, not to mention all the bathrooms, a washer and dryer, two dishwashers, a fully loaded kitchen, and the hot tub! Despite a winter storm and 24 inches of snowfall, the driveway was plowed regularly and the home was always easily accessible. My sister and I were seeking a special birthday celebration in a cozy "cottage" in the snowy woods, and the Rivertree Lodge far exceeded our expectations. The pictures, while accurate, do not do the property justice -- it is far more stunning in person. The moment you step foot on the property, it is truly breathtaking. We cannot thank the Lewis family enough for sharing their spectacular home with us. We dream of going back one day!!

This property is so beautiful, the pictures showing the home and land are great but do not do it justice! Once you get there and see the lovely home and property, you will never want to leave. We had a small, intimate wedding there and it was just magical!

Holly is great to work with, very gracious and accommodating. You will love staying here!

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!
