Welcome to our very special vacation home - an eclectic and romantic home buried in an Aspen and Spruce grove only 20 minutes from the Victorian town of Breckenridge. Recently remodeled with fresh paint, carpet, wood floors, bedding and great amenities. Drive a little and save a lot! A cozy and charming private home located on an acre (backing to National Forest for endless walks and hiking) with commanding views of 14,000 foot mountains with all the creature comforts including:
Three bedrooms, two baths, plus two sleeping lofts and a bonus fourth bedroom over the garage - sleeps seven to 12. Hot tub in solarium overlooking valley. Hardwood floors, country kitchen, two fireplaces and large decks. Satellite TV, stereos, VCR/DVD, videos, books, piano and other accessories. Enclosed single car garage and ski room. Washer and dryer. Backs to National Forest and walking distance to hiking, fishing and other recreational activities.
I love to be up in the mountains and breathe the fresh air. So many ways to enjoy the seasons here and a good book at the end of the day are all I need
Craig Huey purchased this house in 2005
Mountain views and enjoymemnt of trails for hiking, skiing, and biking.
Quiet and natural beauty, calming from the sounds of the river in the valley below and stirring of the leaves. Peaceful walks in the woods and great fishing and biking nearby.
Great cabin, private, cozy fireplace and hot tub. Everything you need is there. We had a very relaxing time with our two dogs and convenient to world class skiing too!
Perfect place for a girls get away weekend. Great cozy cabin feel but with lots of space. Loved the indoor hot tub! We would definitely want to stay here again.
The house was beautiful and different which was nice. Once we arrived to the house we noticed a VERY steep curved driveway that had not been plowed. We tried to make a run at it a couple times and made it 1/4 of the way up with a ram 1500 truck with 4x4. We finally had to walk all the way up to the house and found a shovel. It took us 2 hours to shovel 2 tracks all the way up to the house just to get 1 truck all the way up. Others had to walk up with very heavy coolers and bags slipping and falling all over the place. When trying to leave, the truck slid out of control into the bank and that took us 1.5 hours to dig it out since the drive wasn't accessible. Not what we wanted to do when we expected a nice relaxing vacation. Another concern was that this property stayed there was cable tv/satellite tv. We were looking forward to watching playoff football here but there was no television services. When I asked the owner about this he said there is internet tv which is not the same as cable/satellite tv. The property was not as advertised. Would not stay here again.
The space is set up perfectly for enjoying quality time with a group. A well equipped kitchen with huge island opens up to the hot tub, deck, and dining area. Plenty of sleeping space. Most beautiful setting imaginable. We'll definitely be back!
All in all a nice house, comfortable, fairly spacious, warm.
Great mountain views.
Indoor hot tub was great.
Piano is a nice touch.
Large bathroom upstairs.
Dog friendly. Huge plus.
Some basic cleanliness/tidiness problems. Multiple used food containers in frig (alot of half-empty used peanut butter jars, half empty ketchup bottle and salsa jars, etc.) Our stay was for 5 nights, the frig should have been cleaned out.
There were half-used bars of soap in the showers. The showers also contained mostly empty used shampoo bottles. Either have new (unwrapped) soap bars and unopened mini shampoo bottles available, or clean out the showers completely. (Who would use a stranger's used soap bar?)
There was trash already in trashcan upon our arrival.
Kitchen sponges and scrub pads were used and dirty upon our arrival. Better to not have any at all. We went to the store and bought our own kitchen sponge and scrub pads.
Some drawers and the kitchen under sink were not clean. The cupboard under the kitchen island was dirty and a mess with multiple half empty food containers and jars (half empty PB, jelly, half empty pasta boxes, etc).
The coffee maker was not cleaned well, there was liquid coffee on bottom of the pot (between the pot and base) upon our arrival.
Downstairs bathroom waste basket very dirty, had hair stuck to bottom.
The downstairs shower was dirty, serious soap scum on the water handle, it had not been cleaned prior to our arrival. (Also had the half used soap bar and mostly empty shampoo bottles.) We bought shower cleaner and just cleaned it ourselves.
TV is obsolete, has no HDMI port so you can't watch movies from Netflix or iTunes using your laptop or iPad. Very outdated.
At night the living room is poorly lit. Low wattage bulbs.
All in all, too many minor things that minimal expense and effort would easily fix. Needs basic upgrades and a better commitment to cleanliness.
We chose this house for its location & amenities (ok, the hot tub was a selling point!) and were happy with our choice. Location was perfect - about 20 minutes from downtown Breck; the views were spectacular and although the pics posted are really good, they still don't do this place justice! The starry skies at night were breathtaking. We hope to come back to visit during a summer season to get a different perspective on the layout and natural beauty of this property. We had a great visit!
