Thank you for respecting my Breckenridge rental home!
Awesome place. The mountain views from the back deck are intoxicating. I didn't get to meet Sam but judging from our phone conversations and texting I could tell I'd like him. He has the relaxed and friendly demeanor of a Breckenridger (I have no clue if that's how you refer to a denizen of Breck).
Had a great time at Sam's house...it was clean and well-appointed with everything. The pool and spa clubhouse is great. Convenient location. My daughters and I enjoyed it. Thanks!
Sam's house was perfect for us and our dog! We loved it! Very clean and comfortable with everything we needed. Just a short trip to main street and City Market. Sam was very easy to communicate with and made sure everything was OK during our stay. We would definitely stay here again!
What a fantastic place to get away! The house was the perfect size for us (5 total) and we felt very relaxed. The neighborhood is quiet and the creek runs right behind the home. If you want to hear it a night simply open a window, otherwise the place is very quiet with all windows closed. During our stay there were some great late evening thunderstorms to listen to in the distance. I highly recommend this place for families.
Sam was very helpful and friendly. The place was clean and the location is great if you have a car or if you don't mind a shortish walk downtown.
Best place in Breck! Awesome amenities and attentive host made for a super laid-back vacay! This is by far, one of our favorite places! Thanks Sam, for making us feel welcome in your lovely home.
Cozy cottage on a stream five minutes from downtown Breck. Just a great, comfortable home with amenities and a generous host. We'll be back, for sure.
About the Host, Sam
Hello! My name is Sam. I have called Breckenridge, CO home for the last twelve years. I have a house available for short term rentals on a quiet cul de sac that is walking distance to town, with a bus stop even closer.
I work with Breckenridge Ski Patrol in the winter and at Mountain Wave Bike Shop during the summer. My girlfriend Hanni owns and operates Studio Frame Shop, Breckenridge's finest framing facility. I grew up in Vermont, and Hanni in Pennsylvania. We each traveled throughout the Western United States and discovered Breck in 2003. It was easy to see that Breckenridge is the place to live.
Since our arrival, we have met one another and take every chance to enjoy all of the amazing things to do in Colorado. Come visit, get a taste of the Breckenridge lifestyle, and you won't want to leave either!
We love to work and play in our beautiful town, and travel whenever we get the chance. Skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, river rafting, hiking, road tripping, rock climbing, and camping are our chosen activities in Colorado.
For travel destinations, we sometimes choose tropical places like Colombia or Belize, but we always enjoy a road trip to Utah, or a voyage to the Northeast to visit with family. Traveling is amazing, but even the most enjoyable vacation does not stifle our appreciation for returning home to the elevated paradise that is Breckenridge.
Every day offers something new. Ski or ride the local ski resorts, ride endless miles on Breck's world class mountain bike trails, fish for trout on the Blue River, hike fourteeners, or just stroll Breck's Main Street to sample shops and restaurants. During the evenings, hang out and grill on the big deck out back standing directly over French creek, use the hot tubs, pools, and sauna in the French Creek Clubhouse, take a nap in the hammocks, or hop on your bikes and pedal five minutes into town for drinks and food. There are also tennis courts, a sand volleyball court, a basketball court, and a playground next to the clubhouse.
No matter what the time of year, If you travel to Breckenridge, you'll find lots of things to do outdoors with yourselves, other visitors, and locals. Breck truly has four distinct seasons. As your hosts, we will be here to show you into the comfortable house, and help you discover the best things to do in Summit County-summer, fall, winter and spring.
