This quintessential Rocky Mountain log home is perfect for magical winters or fabulous summers. Breath-taking ski hill and broader mountain views, private 8 seat hot tub, multiple family spaces with flat-screen cable TV’s and Bluetooth music capability, and super fast internet. Peaceful, yet close to town and everything Breckenridge has to offer. Family and dog friendly. Close your eyes and imagine a magical log cabin perfect for your mountain vacation. With exposed log construction, soaring great room ceilings, huge rock fireplace with wood burning stove, and full height windows framing views of the ski hill and surrounding mountains, this house has it all. The home boasts three separate family spaces….shoot a game of pool in the games room, curl up with a film or a book in the loft space under the friendly gaze of Bruce (the moose!), or relax in the main floor great room while keeping an eye on the preparation of your hearty mountain supper in the beautiful, open plan kitchen with granite tops and stainless steel appliances. Each space feels cosy, and yet this 3000ft+ house provides ample space for everyone to find room to relax quietly or socialize as they choose.
The home sits about a 10 minute winter drive from downtown Breckenridge and the Breckenridge ski resort high atop the western facing slope of Bald Mountain. With one garage space and scope for two more on the drive, there is room for all your group. This is also one of the most convenient properties on Boreas Pass and Baldy Road for the FREE half hourly shuttle service on the Summit Stage bus. Just a few moments’ walk (150 yards on the quiet local road, and less through the trees in summer) from your front door takes you to the bus stop linking to the town, the ski hill gondola, Frisco and beyond, providing direct access to all that Breck has to offer with return up to 1.00 a.m. Whether skiing, shopping, dining, watching the local ice hockey team etc, all members of the group can be free to travel when they want rather than arranging cars.
There is easy transport to the ski hill, for skiing and mountain-biking depending on the season. Local trails for snowshoeing, ski touring, hiking, biking or dog walking are within moments’ walk from the house. Investigate the mining history of Breck with two local gold mines accessible on exhilarating local walks. Breck boasts a wealth of both artisan and branded shops, as does nearby Frisco, whilst Silverthorne outlet parks offer the bargain hunter some rich pickings. Seasonal options for Nordic skiing, downhill skiing, mountain-biking, snowmobiling, dog sledding, fishing and golf are all within a short drive, and nearby Lake Dillon offers water-sport opportunities during the summer. Breckenridge also offers stables for winter sleigh rides, or summer horse-back riding. For the serious adventurer, there are a number of 14’ers for you to hike in Summit County.
If you're looking to stay home and relax, the big screen TVs on each floor have just about every channel you can imagine (including HBO, Showtime, Starz, and Cinemax), and the internet is blazing fast (measured at over 45 megabits in Jan 2019) great for streaming on your devices, and essential if you need to keep contact with work! Shoot a game of pool in the downstairs area, ease your aching muscles in the private hot tub, indulge in a glass of wine in the jetted bath tub, or soak up some rays on the beautiful wrap around deck or upstairs balcony. Big screen TV’s in each of the three family spaces, plus Bluetooth sound capability to stream music from your own devices allow you to play pool, keep an eye on your favorite team, and play your own music at the same time. A variety of board games are at the property, plus a separate table in the loft area for card games etc (or a quiet work space). The huge wrap around deck provides a glorious sun trap, is perfect for taking in the air, and outdoor seating for 12 and the Weber gas grill is there for all to use. Plenty of options to allow everyone their choice of vacation, maximizing enjoyment for each and all. Mountain views, star filled skies, local birdlife visiting the deck, and the gorgeous neighborhood fox………create your entertainment, or sit back and be entertained!
