Log Home, 4 Bedrooms + Kids' Bunk Room, 3 Full Baths, Gourmet Kitchen, Hot Tub,
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.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Blue River Lodge exceeds all expectations!
Sometimes it's hard to tell what you're really getting into when just looking at photos of a rental. We had a few criteria we wanted to meet that we thought would make the perfect getaway for our family. Off the beaten path, some what secluded, comfortable sleeping accommodations, an adequate kitchen, and a fire pit to name a few. When we finally pulled up the driveway to the lodge, our minds were blown. NAILED IT! The Blue River Lodge was everything we had hoped and more. It isn't just a place to sleep while seeking Rocky Mt. adventure, it's a place worth making a part of the adventure. The owners were more than available for help, but everything is so spelled out, and so well laid out that there was barely any reason to contact them. When we did, Chris responded within minutes. The property is AMAZING! Inside and out. The decor is warm and comfortable with all it's mountain charm. The sleeping arrangements are ample and comfortable. Even the bunk beds!! And while it feels old and rustic, it is packed with all the modern amenities one could ask for. The accessibility for my 78 yr old Mother with a recent hip replacement and a bum knee was perfect. There are a few stairs to deal with, but she was more than happy to manage. There was also plenty to keep our 4 and 7 yr old daughters busy and happy. From the closet full of games, to nature's play ground around back. Did I mention the Teepee?!!
Also, the Lodge's proximity to Main St. Breckenridge is fantastic. With in just a few short minutes, you can have access to everything Breck has to offer.
A very heartfelt thank you to Chris and his family for being willing to share this little piece of paradise with the rest of us. We are already clamoring to figure out how and when we can return to the Blue River Lodge.
This property was perfect for our family of six. There was a ton of space and kids loved there bed bunk room! The views are great throughout the house. The hot tub is huge and extremely clean! I used it at least twice a day in the mornings and evenings! The kitchen has everything you could dream of needing and the main living area is spacious and hosted our family game nights very well. I also used the sauna which was relaxing. Location is really great as we were a short 10 minute drive to Main Street of Breckenridge and a short drive to Alma and Fairplay which has an awesome museum of an old mining town.
There was a couple minor things after we checked in and property owner was made aware and he responded quickly!
Great place for our summer vacation!!
Wonderful home for a family vacation
This house was perfect for our family vacation. It certainly exceeded our expectations. There was lots of space for “together” time and also private spaces for each of our 3 kids and their families. The weather was great while we were there so we spent lots of time on the deck, in the teepee, around the fire pit, in the hot tub and in the woods.
The inside spaces were great too. The kids loved the pool table and the huge supply of games.
My favorite space was around the large table at breakfast and dinner exchanging memories and stories.
We’ve never had a rental that was equipped this well. It was stocked with everything we needed.
I hope we can return there again very soon.
Best rental experience ever!!
This home is beautiful and equipped with everything you could ever need. We had a wonderful vacation with our family and hated to leave! We can’t wait to come back!
Thanks Laura. So glad you enjoyed it!

Beautiful as advertised
Beautiful place, great location. Only downside the property manager was not much help with a few minor problems. Basement shower did not function properly, issue never resolved during our stay. Having said that I would still rent it again, relaxing, beautiful setting and the best rental we have ever done.
Greg, our apologies that the loose handle in the shower couldn't be fixed during your stay since our plumber was not available. While the shower still worked I understand that it was tricky to adjust the water temperature. We hope that your family will still still come back another time.
The property was clean and as described.
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!
