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.

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 cabin in 1996

Why Chris chose Breckenridge

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 cabin 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.

Spring Break 2018

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was great & a lot of fun! The accommodations were perfect for our family during our stay!

I would recommend that the properties road to the cabin be paved & properly maintained since our one of our SUVs got stuck, the neighbors were nice enough to let the SUV (Infinity Q60) stay in their parking space & had to be towed out at the end of our stay! Other than that I would recommend this cabin to everyone! Thanks

Owner's Response: Elva and Kevin, thank you for your review and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay. Our apologies that one of your vehicles had difficulty. Our road is an asphalt conglomerate and is professionally maintained and plowed each time it snows. I suspect that you got stuck right after a snowstorm and before our road was plowed (although our plow service usually arrives first thing in the morning), or your car was not suitable for winter driving in the Colorado mountains. During a winter storm snow can accumulate quickly and we recommend that our guests have a 4WD vehicle (4WD is better than AWD) to handle winter driving conditions whether that be on our road (which is plowed) or the main roads such as highway 9 and I-70.

Great cabin south of Breckenridge

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is well appointed and in a good location about 10 minutes outside of Breckenridge. The spa features are exactly what we needed after a long day of skiing. It's one of the best VRBO's I've rented and I highly recommend you consider it. The owner is responsive and it was a pleasant experience.

We all had a great time at this amazing house! It was beautiful, had a great location, we saw lots of wildlife and we loved the amenities that came with it. The only thing that had an issue with was the dryer not drying our stuff very good and not having a lot of lighting in bedrooms. Other than that, it was great! We will definitely come back here!

Best Log Home in Breckenridge!

  • 5 of 5

This house has it all - bunk room that our kids loved, outdoor fire pit where we made s'mores every night, hot tub, tipi (with its own fire pit), national forest out the back door, mountain views, huge sunny deck, gourmet kitchen stocked with everything you could possibly think of, pool table, spacious bedrooms with comfy beds and down comforters... Cool nights were such a welcome reprieve from our hot summer back east. Easy access to awesome hiking trails. I could go on and on. Don't even think twice - this is the perfect house for a family vacation.

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!
