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
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.
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.
This property is one of the best we've stayed in. We had 4 adults and 4 children under 6 years of age. House was well kept, tons of amenities, great location, and had tons of space. We loved the hot tub, teepee, and fire pit, along with being only 10 minutes from Breckenridge. Chris was flexible and really easy to work with. Book without hesitation, thanks for a great stay Chris!
Beautiful log cabin feel with all the amenities, hot tub, sauna, and steam shower. Great remote hikes 15 miles south. Suggest checking in at the Forest Service Office in Fairplay for maps and trail conditions. Excellent remote hikes through miles of aspen forests in full fall color; no other humans on the trail, but did see elk and mule deer close up, and antelope at a distance. Bike ride from Breck to Frisco and afternoon shopping and dining in Frisco made for a pleasant day. We did the Briar Rose for a nice dinner out and Alpine Sports North for bike rental and easy access to the trail to Frisco; we recommend both.
The luxury log house was spacious fun and very well appointed. Three levels gave all 6 of us space. The main level is perfect for cooking and gathering-enjoyed the furniture. The attention to detail was very impressive and appreciated. The deck hot tub was fun under the stars. The kitchen was gourmet supplied with all needed to comfortably prepare dinner/ breakfast. The dining table set a beautiful table for forever memories. Six miles south of Breckenridge and we found it to be a perfect distance out of town away from it all. Fly fishing close by.
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!
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.
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!!
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.

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!
