Overview

Breckenridge House Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Oversized Kid's Bunk Room, 3 Full Baths

Welcome to the Blue River Lodge! This luxurious custom crafted, log home comes is a rare find complete with an outdoor 7-person hot tub, sauna, steam room, spacious two-car heated garage, multi-room sound system, pool table, Indian tipi, outdoor fire pit with log benches (and marshmallow roasting sticks), huge deck (and separate private deck for the Master Bedroom), wireless broadband, acreage, views, and more. If you are looking for a true Colorado log cabin in the woods yet want to pamper yourself with the comforts of a luxury spa (and very close to skiing and the town of Breckenridge), this is it! Find our property on Facebook (search 'Blue River Lodge') for over 100 more pictures!

The spacious living areas include a large great room with woodstove, huge master bedroom (King size bed), two guest bedrooms (each with Queen bed), an oversized bunk room that sleeps up to 8 (two full size bunks and four single size bunks, all built-in) and three very spacious full baths to comfortably accommodate three or four couples or families with children. With top of the line furnishings, a fully-equipped gourmet kitchen, down comforters and pillows, and plenty of living space, you will feel like a guest in a private home rather than a tourist in a rental property. Whether you want to relax under the stars in the hot tub after a day of skiing, curl up next to the woodstove with a good book, snowshoe out the back door (6 sets of snowshoes are provided), take a sauna or steam, or shoot a game of pool, this house has everything you need for a perfect Colorado mountain vacation.

Other amenities include Satellite TV, wireless broadband, wood stove, gas fireplace, very large 'mudroom' for boots and jackets, and even an authentic Indian Tipi complete with firepit (and marshmallow roasting forks).

Picture windows and two large decks offer magnificent views in every direction! Front deck looks into mountain peaks and rear deck faces National Forest. Secluded from view from other houses, the Blue River Lodge is nestled in Aspen and Pine, five minutes from Breckenridge with quick access to the ski areas of Breckenridge, Keystone, Copper, A-Basin and Vail. The Blue River Lodge is also close to world class golfing, shopping, back-country trails for hiking and biking, rafting, and gold medal flyfishing.

About Chris

We live in Denver and manage this property ourselves. It is a rare find -- a true log cabin in a very private setting with all the furnishings and amenities you could ever want. Please contact us for more photos and any questions you might have!

Chris purchased this house in 1996

Why Chris chose Breckenridge Area

This house has great views and privacy yet is very close to the town of Breckenridge for shopping, skiing and restaurants. This is a true custom crafted log home, not a 'kit' log cabin, located on a very private lot next to National Forest. We believe it is a one of a kind and our guests agree.

What makes this house unique

This is not your typical rental house and is furnished as if it were your own. It has a two-car heated garage, gourmet kitchen, large private hot tub, sauna, steam shower and pool table. For the children we have a huge bunkroom, an authentic Indian tipi complete with firepit and log benches. We provide the 'extras' that are not typically included with other rentals -- tons of board games, Jenga, puzzles, cards, down comforters and pillows, gourmet kitchen provisioned with spices and top of the line cookware. We make every effort to distinguish our house as the best on the market in Breckenridge.

Where to even begin...

Our families had an incredible time at the Blue River Lodge! It was exactly what it was described as and more!

We had tons of fun playing at the house and hiking around outback as we did taking short drives to find short and long trails to hike with kids. We talked with several locals to find more amazing places to go such as Kite Lake, Paris Mill/Lincoln Falls, etc. We explored a lot on our own and were so excited to find so many places to explore close by!

The owners are wonderful and very easy to talk with. The home was equipped with plenty in the kitchen, for the kids, chairs outside, etc. Very clean and plenty of room!

We hope to come back! Meanwhile, we will suggest this home to everyone we know!

It was truly a wonderful home!

What a perfect cabin getaway

  • 5 of 5

You really couldn't pick a more perfect cabin for a large family group. It really has it all. This was our third time on a ski trip out to Breckenridge. I'll tell you right off the bat, you need four wheel drive to get up the driveway in winter...and even after a snow, it is still challenging with a Suburban. That is literally the ONLY hiccup. Other than that, the layout was excellent - lots of space for friends and family. The location was so great - quick drive into Breckenridge, other mountains nearby. Wifi worked great for folks on our trip who had to work a bit. The hot tub was excellent for relaxing after full days of skiing. The fireplace was great for winding down at night. All of the beds were comfortable. Lots of room in the garage to park cars. The availability of snowshoes to hike up behind the property for some amazing views and folks who didn't want to aggressively ski every day was an unexpected treasure. Even the teepee out back with a bonfire was a fun night for our group. The house is also close to Hoosier Pass - so pop out of the driveway, take a right, and head up a few miles for gorgeous views of the mountain range. Only an hour drive to the Mt. Princeton hot springs - totally doable. The neighbors were even super friendly. I would rent this cabin again in the winter and the summer and I look forward to doing so in the future. Don't think twice - just book this place, rent an SUV, and enjoy.

we LOVED this place!

This was the PERFECT cabin for our group. We had several adult couples come together from across the country and meet here for a week of skiing in summit county. Absolutely nothing negative to say about the place - looking forward to bringing my entire family back!!

Exceptional

  • 5 of 5

I've been doing vacation rentals in Colorado for many years now and I have to say this place ranks in the top 3. The cabin was amazing, very rustic with lots of character. All the amenities were top-notch, the teepee and the indoor sauna were like icing on the cake. Great location and the owners were professional and easy to work with. Thanks Chris, we're already looking forward to staying here again next year.

Best week! Perfect for large families

  • 5 of 5

We had an extended family that included 4 generations ranging from a 1 year old to my 82 year old mother. This house was perfect. The three levels gave us plenty of room to get away from each other yet was big enough on each level for us to get together and have a great time. We rented the house so we could ski and explore the Breckenridge area and it worked perfectly. You should know that when the owner says you need four-wheel drive to get to the house, he's not kidding. We had 4WD and so it was no problem. The steep driveway was perfect for sledding and we did this a lot. I think my favorite part of the house was the fact that there is no television on the level with the kitchen. It gave all of us a chance to spend time talking without outside distractions. The house is gorgeous, well taken care of and the sauna and steam-shower are awesome. We hope to go there again.

Perfect Cabin for a large group or a family

  • 5 of 5

I had never used VRBO before. I found this cabin and was not disappointed at all. Everything the owner lists is absolutely true! The cabin is a piece of heaven! Clean and every detail has been thought of! We stayed here for Thanksgiving in 2015. We loved this cabin and would love to return. The owner is wonderful and so easy to work with. The layout is perfect for kids. Plenty of room for everyone!

The Blue River Lodge is close to the town of Breckenridge yet located in a private setting where you are secluded and protected from the noise and bustle of town. Surrounded by Aspen and Evergreen trees with mountain views you will feel far away but with a short ten minute drive you will find yourself in the world class resort of Breckenridge which offers some of Colorado's best skiing, fabulous restaurants, excellent shopping, spas, nightlife and more. Winter activities include x-country skiing and snowshoeing from the Breckenridge Nordic Center (or out our back door, snowshoes provide!), terrain parks, snowmobiling, dog sled rides, and of course world-class skiing for all ability levels. Copper Mountain, Keystone, A-Basin are all within 30 minutes and Vail is only a 50-minute drive. If you are looking for a great summer escape, Breckenridge and Summit County offer some of the best hiking trails, mountain biking, fishing and rafting in Colorado, The Breckenridge Golf Course, designed by Jack Nicklaus, is only 15 minutes away. If boating, sailing or stand up paddle boards are your thing, Lake Dillon is only 20 minutes away. The Blue River Lodge offers a true Colorado log cabin experience complete with almost every amenity and luxury you could want -- maintained 7-person hot tub, sauna, steam shower, fire pit in back, Indian tipi, 2-car heated garage, pool table, large deck, every board game you could imagine and more -- most guests tell us that they hardly went into town because they enjoyed the Blue River Lodge so much! Guests often comment that staying at the Blue River Lodge is like having your own private spa - steam shower, sauna, outdoor hot tub, oversized showers with natural stone, copper bathtub - all nicer than most luxury spas. The tipi behind the house (with firepit inside) is fabulous for the kids, and an oversized firepit outside complete with benches and marshmallow roasting sticks will provide hours of enjoyment. This log home borders National Forest yet is close to world class resorts -- the opportunities are endless!
