About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12-14)

We want to introduce you to our magnificent family home nestled in the forest of Breckenridge! If a great price, a fantastic location, and a host of amenities interest you, this is the place you want! IMAGINE 2 acres of incredible views from all sides of the property, three decks, a jacuzzi under the stars, and 3,000 sq. feet of space in the house - THAT'S LAURAWAY! Located on two wooded acres, which border the famous Blue River … all of this remoteness is less than 5 minutes from the center of historic Breckenridge.

Lauraway is a family home, we all work on the house so it is much more than just a rental - you'll find warmth and friendly additions at Lauraway. We take pride in owning and caring for our home.

Lauraway is ideal for family reunions and groups of friends who want special times together. The dining room table which can seat 12 makes meals an opportune time to share, the picnic area by the Blue River provides outdoor eating, and the multi-levels give some 'space' when space is needed! The house will comfortably sleep 12 and there are also convertible beds (hide-a-beds).

And for those people who find they must do just a little work while vacationing, we do have WIFI service.



LOWER LEVEL - As you enter the house, there is the game room with TV/DVD, pool table, and barstools and counter. A deck with table, chairs, and large Jacuzzi 'under the stars' sits next to the game room. Also on this floor is a Sauna. One bedroom, Lodgepole, has a queen bed while the second bedroom, Aspen, has two sets of bunk beds. And finally, the bath on this lower level has a shower.

MIDDLE FLOOR - This is all entertainment. Our renters comment that they love a level with no bedrooms so 'entertainment' can occur at all hours of the day or night! The great room hosts a TV/CD/DVD unit, a wood-burning fireplace, a game table, and lots of seating - two couches, a recliner chair, and two window seats. The kitchen hosts modern conveniences and there is a long kitchen counter with 5 barstools. In addition, the dining room table can seat 12, so all can enjoy each other's laughter and tales of the day! We have even added a second refrigerator for large groups. The washer and dryers on this floor may be used by guests. There is also a half-bath. Outside on this level is a deck with patio furniture and a propane grill.

TOP LEVEL - You may find yourself fighting for the master bedroom suite - the Wildflower room has a king bed, walk-in closet, two window seats, two couches, private deck with exquisite views, TV, and bathroom with a shower. The second bedroom on this floor, Pinecone, has a queen bed; and the other bedroom, Spruce, has two twin beds. These two bedrooms share a full bath with double sinks.


- “We had a FABULOUS time at Lauraway. We have stayed in the Summit County area on several occasions and everyone believed that Lauraway was the best place we ever stayed.”

- “My husband and I really believe that staying at the right house makes or break a vacation. The huge living room was a great gathering place for everyone so that we could catch up on everyone’s activities for the day. And it was really great to have a dining room table big enough for everyone to eat together. The hot tub and pool table got a lot of use as well.”

Why Elizabeth and Tony chose Breckenridge Area

We fell in love with Breckenridge while skiing there years ago and decided it would be a perfect place to own a vacation home. Our home is nestled on 2 wooded acres so it feels like you're away from it all, yet it's less than 2 miles to the gondola. And the best part - summers are just as great as winters in Breckenridge with endless outdoor adventures.

We liked it so much this was our second time staying!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great experience again with Laraway! We stayed last year and liked it so much we came back! The only reason I did not give it full 5 stars is because the hot tub was not working. We called to have it fixed, but the guy never came.

Would stay here again!

Great for big groups!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our group of 10 adults. There is plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen is big enough for everyone to gather and cook. We will definitely stay there again if in Breckenridge!

Very pretty scenery

  • 4 of 5

It was definitely big enough for our group that stayed here. The furniture needs some updating. It was in a perfect location and we have a very good stay at the house. We only had 4 channels on the TV which kind of stunk.

Comfortable, fun and practical

  • 5 of 5

We were a diverse group of ski patrollers from all over the US. This was a great place that suited us well. It has lots of beds for everyone, a great living room and kitchen where everyone could gather and relax together. The sauna, hot tub and pool table were available for fun although our group was so busy that we were only able to take advantage of the hot tub. We would definitely come back to stay here.

Scenic Mountain Hide-Away

  • 2 of 5

We selected Lauraway for its secluded location, stunning views, and picnic area beside the river. We appreciated owners' prompt response to questions prior to rental. Hearing about the tree house for our grandchildren to enjoy sealed the deal.


*Floor plan with 2 ground floor bedrooms and 3 top floor bedrooms comfortably accommodated our family of 8

*Clean upon arrival


*Towels plentiful but stiff and tattered from overuse

*Back of a dining chair was broken, leaving a 3" screw dangerously exposed

*No hairdryer available as advertised

*Dense undergrowth prevented access to river-side picnic table; tree house disappointingly inaccessible

*Vintage fridge not fully functional. Items stored in door fall on floor upon opening; 2nd fridge provided in another room

*Owners request no outside shoes indoors; Beware sock-covered feet on steep spiral stairs. Despite caution, we had 3 falls!

Great Location

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at Lauraway the nights of 2/7/16 thru 2/12/16. The place was clean and acceptable. Understand the week before Breckenridge did receive quite a lot of snow the did hamper the use of the house some. We had to enter on the bottom floor, since the second floor was pretty much snowed in. What we did not know is that there were two sets of spiral staircases between floor that we had to use. Since my wife had just knee surgery 1 month before this was somewhat difficult but not overcome.

They do have a wood burning fireplace, and we were told that firewood was placed on the deck each weekend, however the amount of wood provided a fire for the first half of the superbowl. We had to purchase our own firewood. Also we never did find the recliner that was suppose to be on the second level.

When we first got there we read the rules and regulations that were normal and expected, however we did not think we should have to be carrying out the trash of the people that were there the few days before. Two full garbage cans plus many sacks of trash.

Our group consisted of 6 people ages from 6 to 65 so the space a was very adequate. Lauraway was just a short trip to the gondola, perhaps 10 minutes, so the location was nice and also secluded.

I give it 3 stars, perhaps another half do to the lack of firewood and spiral staircases and trash removal. Possibly could return but doubtful.

Owner's Response: We're glad you enjoyed your stay at Lauraway--it was quite the perfect snow weekend! I understand your concerns about the spiral staircase which is why we clearly described the stairs in our vrbo ad. Also we do have two pull out beds in our home--one in the master and one on the main level. I apologize if you were unable to find them. We thank you for taking out the trash, but you were not required to take out trash from previous guests. When you asked, I said it would be good if you were able to take out your own on trash day so it wouldn't pile up for you. I'm sorry if that wasn't clear in our emails back and forth on the matter. Again, we're glad you enjoyed your trip and hope you'll consider staying again.
