Blue River House Rental Photos and Description

Mountain View, 4 Bedroom+Loft, 4 1/2 Bath W/ Game Room

Starwood at Quandary is conveniently located in the serene neighborhood of Timber Creek Estates. Just 8 minutes (5 miles) from downtown Breckenridge, this quiet, paved neighborhood is perfect for a morning walk to take in the stunning mountain views!

Upon entering the 3,200 sqf luxury duplex home, you will find the spruce framed view of 14,265' Mt. Quandary welcoming you 'home' to Colorado!

The vaulted ceiling great room features wood floors and a gas fireplace creating a cozy setting for relaxing and watching tv, reading a good book or watching the snow fall on a wintery day out on the deck which hosts the hot tub, gas grill and patio furniture during the summer months. Having an open concept the main floor includes a dining area and a bar as well as a granite counter kitchen with stainless steel/electric appliances all conveniently together for family enjoyment.

In addition to the main floor great room is the downstairs game room (man cave) which features a pool table, Ms. Pacman machine, poker/card table, dart board, popcorn machine, cable tv, stereo and a full wet bar.

The designer furnished home features two master bedrooms (tv's in both) - one on the main floor (five piece bath with jetted tub) and one on the ground floor (with a steam/sauna shower with seating up to 4 people).

The upstairs loft (with queen pullout) offers a tv/DVD and is set up for wii. Both upstairs bedrooms feature a queen bed with en suite full baths. One additional half bath is located on the main floor.

The heated garage has parking for one car and a 'changing area' that includes dryers for 10 pair of boots or gloves. There is parking for up to four additional cars on the paved driveway.

About Brenn Dunphy

Welcome to Starwood at Quandry's website. We're happy you're checking us out! We know you'll find our Colorado home everything you want it to be plus more. Our family has been vacationing in Colorado for over 20 years. Our dreams have finally been realized......owning our own home in beautiful Colorado! Here's a little information about us - Brenn & Bobett Dunphy. Brenn operates our family farm in Illinois and Bobett works for the USDA. We like our work in illinois but love our play in Colorado! Whether its hitting the slopes after harvest is over or enjoying the beautiful mountain passes on our Harley after crops are planted, our favorite place to be is at home in Colorado. We, along with our adult kids Bethany and Brennan, look forward to lots of fun times in the years ahead at Starwood.

Brenn Dunphy purchased this house in 2011

Why Brenn Dunphy chose Blue River

After months with our realtor looking at plenty of homes, we took out first tour at the house located at 290 Whispering Pines. It was love at first site!! Living in the country in IL, we knew we wanted a quiet neighborhood outside of town and wanted paved roads because of our Harley. A quick 8 minutes gets you to the gondola so we felt the location was perfect. We thought it was a great asset that each bedroom has its own full bathroom and two of the bedrooms have master baths. After a long day of skiing, a hot tub is a must and ours is on our deck looking out over our fully matured pines in our secluded back yard. The view of a starry night in Colorado is awesome from the hot tub. The game room/bar (a/k/a man cave according to Brenn) on the lower level was just the 'cherry on top'. Whether its a game of pool, playing the pacman machine or a game of cards at the poker table, it makes for a great family night, especially when the popcorn machine is used. Oh yeah, in case you're wondering why we named our home 'Starwood at Quandary', one of Brenn's favorite song writers was John Denver and in one of his songs he sings about his Colorado home called 'Starwood in Aspen'. With the gorgeous view our great room offers of Mt. Quandary, hence the name 'Starwood at Quandary' our 'sweet Rocky Mountain Paradise'.

What makes this house unique

Paved roads. 8 minute drive to downtown Breck. Quiet neighborhood. All bedrooms have en suite bathrooms.

Lovely house with a great view

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to find that the house looks just as it is pictured. It is well stocked with paper products, soaps, detergent etc. The kitchen has all of the dishes, pots and pans, appliances and utensils you may need. In addition, there are spices, condiments etc. so they don't all have to be purchased to prepare a nice dinner. Everything is marked so you don't have to search for things. The house is a short drive south of Breck. At first this may seem unhandy, but since Breck fills up with people on Main Street, it is nice to have a quiet refuge. The view of Mount Quandary from the great room is beautiful. Having an en suite for each bedroom makes the stay nice for all guests. Everyone can be getting ready at the same time. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this home.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

If I had a mountain retreat this is what it would be like. Enough room for all family and friends. Game room(man cave) was fantastic and that is where we spent a lot of our time.The kitchen had room and the dining area worked great for us. Enjoyed the big windows and the views were special. Everyone enjoyed themselves and no body felt cramped. The hot tub was enjoyed by everyone and the sauna was a bonus. This was everything we wanted and the snow just made it more special. Everyone wants to go back. Thank you for letting us enjoy your mountain retreat.

PERFECTION!

  • 5 of 5

First off...Brenn and Bobbit, THANK YOU! You are very fortunate to have such a lovely ski house and we were very fortunate to have rented it from such accommodating and responsive owners!

Your house was spectacular and perfect for our group of 8 adults! Not only was it clean, beautifully decorated and stocked with everything that we may need, it was in the perfect location and just a wonderful place to come home and make dinner and relax in.

You have thought of everything! The hot tub was such a nice touch and well needed after 5 days of skiing!

Each person was comfortable no matter what room they stayed in! The extra pillows and blankets were much appreciated!

I cannot say enough. This crew has been skiing together for the past 10 years and this is by far the absolute best home we have ever stayed in.

I could have stayed for another week!

Thank you!

Great price for what I received!

  • 5 of 5

This is obviously a home and not just a money generating rental property. High end furniture, kitchen, appliances! The view is unbeatable. Brenn was attentive and kind in regards to anything I needed. For a group of 4 couples and a baby- this place was perfect!

Gorgeous mountain home with every amenity!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful home with four other couples. Everyone loved this property. The man cave was such a fun addition and made hanging out at home just as much fun as going out in Breck! The kitchen is stocked with everything imaginable. I loved that every room had its own bathroom. We also enjoyed the hot tub everyday after skiing! I would definitely recommend this property and hope to stay here again. The owners were very helpful and easy to reach.
