THE TOWN AND ACTIVITIES
Breckenridge is an authentic Colorado mountain town that greets you with its laid-back charm and modern amenities. Being on peak 7 gives you the opportunity to relax after you have experienced all you can from the day, escaping the noise of town, returning to the peace and tranquility being high on the mountain, surrounded by incredible wildlife, pine and aspen trees.
Winter is the time for skiing and snowshoeing, summers are also packed full of activities such as golf, hiking the trails, canoeing, sailing, mountain biking, rafting and zip lining. There are roller coasters at the base of Peak 8 in the summer months, with a kids adventure park. It should be noted that the mountain views from the apartment are obstructed in the summer months due to the leaves on the many aspen trees.

Vicky personally met us and made sure the accommodations were to our liking. The apartment was comfortable, fully equipped, and very conveniently located in Breckenridge. The view on peak 7 was exceptional. We were able to take advantage of the many streams to fly fish daily. The scenery and pristine waters were truly a 'Piece of Heaven'. I would highly recommend this apartment to others wanting to vacation in and around Breckenridge.
This apartment was darling! Everything was as described. It's cozy and private, well furnished, and convenient to downtown Breckenridge.
Vicky was amazing. She always responded promptly and went out of her way to accommodate us even when our plans changed unexpectedly. The place was even better than the photos show. The house was spotless. Vicky always gave us our privacy.
A piece of heaven is accurately described. We thoroughly enjoyed our extended stay in this apartment. The location is great; beautiful views and quiet. The apartment is well equipped and we quickly felt at home. The hosts were very friendly and responsive to our questions/needs. We would definitely stay here again!
My husband and I arrived in the early afternoon and with Vickys directions it was very easy to find the cabin. The cabin was beautiful and the view was incredible. We enjoyed all of the suggestions Vicky gave us to better enjoy our stay. Breckenridge was such a cute little town and the cabin was a perfect distance away from everything. We really enjoyed ourselves and can't wait for further vacations back to Breckenridge and will for sure call Vicky for a place to stay! :)
Vicky and Al were wonderful. We arrived rather late in the evening so we didn't get the full scope of the area until the next morning. One word: Breathtaking. The place is nestled high on the peak so you open the door to some truly astounding views. The apartment itself is wonderful. Incredibly spacious and well maintained. There is more than enough space for two couples to share the space and quite literally all the amenities you could want or need are provided. The space is incredibly comfortable and after a long day on the slopes you are more than ready to cuddle up on the cozy couch. Vicky provides all the information that you need to get around the area as well as some excellent information on the local wildlife. We arrived right before a few rounds of snowfall and were pleasantly surprised at how quickly the driveway was made usable--being from Miami we were a little terrified to try driving in the snow. All in all this was an incredible vacation. The town of Breckenridge is incredibly charming and Vicky and Al contributed greatly to that charm. Highly recommended!
Our hostess was actually finishing up with preparations for our stay when we arrived a bit early! How nice to meet her and then be able to "move right in" upon our arrival. The apartment was like a condo, all to ourselves, beautifully appointed, with a fully equipped kitchen - including small appliances and condiments, and very comfy beds! Staying at this location gave us a great taste of "the mountain life" - in the woods, surrounded by several mountains, yet easy access and clear roads all the way into Breckenridge just a few miles away. There were a few snowfalls during our stay, but our sidewalk and steps were kept clear, and the driveway and roads were always well plowed. We would definitely recommend this "piece of heaven on 7," especially if you want to be away from the hubbub of downtown Breckenridge and want to enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings there. A stay in the summer would be excellent, too, sitting out on the deck!
2 thumbs up!!!
About the Host, Vicky
My husband and I drove through Breckenridge on a major road trip around the United States when we were still living in England. Three years later we moved to Breckenridge and have loved it ever since. We fell in love with Breckenridge and Colorado as it has a wonderful climate for so many activities including skiing and riding on some of the best mountains in North America and all the summer activities you could desire. It also helps that the blue skies here always make you feel happy!
We will always be available to help with any questions you have on what to do and where to go, and we hope you love our apartment on Peak 7 as much as we do.
