Ski-in Ski-Out - Luxury Mountain Living at its Finest!

Ski-in Ski-Out - Luxury Mountain Living at its Finest!

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Dec 16, 2014
Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Welcome and thank you for visiting 'Our Favorite Place'! We love our mountain home both in the winter and summer and the beautiful Victorian town of Breckenridge. We hope you will too. Our Favorite Place has an open main level, living, dining and kitchen area, with south facing floor to ceiling windows showcasing views of Mt. Baldy, Red Mountain and the ski area. Here friends and family can gather to enjoy this exquisite mountain retreat year round. It is a winter wonderland during the snow season and a dream in the cool mountain summers. Read below for the new Peak 6 skiing.

The cathedral ceilings give the living area a wonderful openness. Wood floors on the main level add mountain ambience with the added luxury of in floor radiant heating throughout. The kitchen offers granite counter tops and high end appliances. Three bedrooms, each on a different level, offer privacy for all. You will find a king bed in the master suite, a queen bed in the mid-level bedroom and twin beds in the lower level. The walk out den to the hot tub also has a sofa bed, a media center and is a place just to get away and enjoy a book alone. In addition there are tiled baths with honed travertine and tumbled travertine trim, double sink in the master bath, a stand alone shower on the mid-level, a full size washer and dryer and a private master suite on a level to its own. There is only one common wall in the duplex, no one above or below, giving you complete privacy. There is room for one car in the heated garage and another in the driveway. The home is on a private cul-de-sac with minimum traffic. Don't be surprised to see skiers zipping in front of, behind or beside our home during winter ski season.

Our Favorite Place is decorated in authentic Colorado mountain style and is located on Snowflake Trail, only a stones throw down to Snowflake Lift. The lift will whisk you up to Peak 8 where you can cruise to all other points throughout the resort or you can catch the free bus from the stop a block away to any other destination around Breckenridge. Peak 6 opened during the 2013-2014 ski season adding about 25% more skiable terrain. The Peak 6 project includes 400 acres of lift-served terrain and 143 acres of hike-to terrain including bowl terrain for intermediate skiers! So now there are five Peaks (6, 7, 8, 9 and 10) and Snowflake Lift takes you up into the heart or middle of all this fabulous terrain!

After a day of skiing, golfing, hiking, etc., spend the afternoon sitting in the hot tub or the two person Jacuzzi in the master bath, which also has a stand alone shower. The living room's focal point is the floor to ceiling stone fireplace with a raised hearth and comfy cushion great for warming up after a day on the slopes. This can be topped off with a quite evening at home or shopping, restaurants and night life await you downtown. Have a great time!

We think it is the perfect mountain town! When you get here, you’ll feel like you’re part of the town – a local – whether you’re on Main Street or up 13,000ft at the ski resort summit. From shopping to nightlife from dining to culture, you can kick-it-up or kick back, whatever your mood.

Summit County is aptly named 'Colorado's Playground.' For more than a century, people have fallen in love with picturesque Breckenridge and Summit County for its lively year-round recreational possibilities and eternal charm. Summit County is located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains just west of the Continental Divide and is approximately 90 miles west of Denver. Breckenridge is accessible by car or airport transfer with Colorado Mountain Express as well as other carriers. With our high elevations, low humidity, and Colorado's infamous sunny blue bird skies, the temperature often feels warmer than it truly is. You can fill your days skiing, touring our remarkable hiking and biking trails, rafting or kayaking the raging rivers, sailing or playing one of Summit County's five world class golf courses. In the summer, families will really enjoy Breckenridge’s Peak 8 Fun Park with 3 alpine slides, miniature golf, a maze, and bouncers, along with concessions and other attractions. Summit County offers more activities for all ages and all abilities than you could ever imagine.

The neighboring mountain towns of Frisco, Dillon and Silverthorne are situated around gorgeous Lake Dillon, just a short drive away. Summit County is the home to four world-class ski resorts including Breckenridge, Arapahoe Basin, Copper Mountain and Keystone, each of which are located within a short distance of each other. A typical multiday ski pass can cover several of these ski resorts but why leave Breckenridge! You'll have a hard time covering all the ski terrain in Breckenridge and ski-in and ski-out is available most of the ski season depending on snow conditions. Early season is sometimes iffy for the lower elevation trails. With endless winter and summer activities, Summit County plays host to nearly 3 million visitors per year. So, no matter your pleasure, you'll love Summit County, 'Colorado's Playground.' Once the snow melts, another side of Breckenridge appears. Bright blue skies, mild temperatures and colorful wildflowers make Breckenridge the ideal summer destination. If you ask any of our friendly locals why they came here they'll say: 'I came for the winter but stayed for the summer.'

Breckenridge is a shoppers’ paradise with more than 200 shops, boutiques, galleries, museums, wonderful restaurants and sports stores on and around historic Main Street. The antique appearing lamp posts line Main Street and hold baskets of sumptuous arrays of flowers in the summertime. Horse and buggy tours through this historic Victorian mining town are a favorite of many. All this is available only a short distance from our home and provides for a wonderful walk in fresh mountain air.

Enjoy your visit!

About the Owner

My wife and I grew up in western Kentucky and met at Murray State University. She later taught school all over the U.S. and Germany and I spent 20 years in the Army retiring out of the Pentagon. I was a Soviet Foreign Area Officer and worked much of my career in Russian intelligence. I then worked in the financial planning industry before retiring 3 years ago. Upon retiring, we followed our children to Colorado from Atlanta, our 21st move! Our daughter has lived in Breckenridge for almost 20 years and our son graduated from Colorado State University. He came all the way out to Colorado from Northern Virginia and so did my daughter! Our children spent a lot of their youth skiing and traveling in the Alps and migrated to the Rocky Mountains as soon as they could. We also have two wonderful grandsons and a wonderful daughter-in-law. Not only did our son and daughter-in-law get engaged in Breckenridge at a pristine lake above our Breckenridge home, they also got married in beautiful Breck! Every one skis including our grandsons, four year old Lucas and six year old Joseph. We know you'll like the mountains as well as we do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a joy to stay in a beautiful place that seemed like a real home. We loved the decorations. We had a wonderful family time with our children and grandchildren - our 2 yr. old tried skis on your hill and built her first snowman. What memories! Our two older grandchildren (plus the older generations) enjoyed the ski-in/out. Thanks for letting us have a great place to make wonderful memories.

We had such a great time! Thanks for sharing your wonderful property with my family!

  • 5 of 5
We had such a great time at your property with our in-laws and children. We enjoyed turning on the fireplace at night, and even getting into the hot tub after a fun day of skiing. Like you mentioned in our email exchanges and listing, your property is centrally located to the Snow Flake lift. To get to the Snow Flake lift, all we did was grab our skis and walk across the driveway. In addition, the free ride service at the bottom of the hill made it easy for our group to move between peaks. The snow was awesome! We can’t wait to come back next year! Hope to speak with you soon, Skipper.

Breckenridge Ski Trip

  • 5 of 5
Our group spent a wonderful week at Breckenridge on 02/09-02/15 thanks largely to our accomadations at the Bennet Ski Condo. The condo was exactly as described at the VRBO website. The unit was very nicely furnished and you do not need to bring anything but food and refreshments. The heated garage was great to allow our skis and boots to dry off, out of site during the evening. It is an easy walk into town and a very easy, 30 second ski to the Snowflake lift. I would highly recommend this unit to any family looking to ski at Breck. This was my 5th trip to Breck and my best so far. We would love to come back and stay at this location in the future. Thank-you to the Bennet family.

Great property! Great location!

  • 5 of 5
Had a mixed aged group of 7 on our recent stay in Breckenridge( ages 3-67), skiers and snowboarders! This property was conveniently located to town & really couldn't get any closer to the run & lift! Didn't rent vehicles on this trip & the free route system was conveniently located on corner & surprisingly easy to figure out! Walked into town on several occassions with no trouble also! The owner was so great to deal with and very accommodating of our requests before we arrived on our trip! thanks so much for letting us enjoy your home. Loved that the rooms were all located on seperate floors allowing everyone a little privacy. We will definately look into staying at this location again if our group size allows!

Nice Condo, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5
By far the best condo of our four trips to Breckenridge. The owner is responsive and very hospitable. The condo is as described, very nice and well maintained. The location is great with Snowflake trail just outside the front door and across the street and once on the trail about 50 yards down the trail to Snowflake lift. I would absolutely recommend this home to anyone coming to Breck for skiing.

Comfortable, great location, overall excellent home

  • 5 of 5
My family of 5 thoroughly enjoyed this home during Spring Break. Everything was just as described and the hot tub, location, amenities were wonderful. The kitchen is a bit small but was fine for us since only one person did the cooking on this trip. If you have several folks that like to cook together - this wouldn't work for you.

Owner's Response: We wish the kitchen were a bit larger as well but we have fixed Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners for as many as 12 people! We appreciate your comments and glad you had a great time!

Spring Break Family Skiing with Teen Boys

  • 5 of 5
We loved the condo location and chose it for ski-in, ski-out, (no hauling equipment for miles!) Just have to cross the neighborhood street and strap on your skiis. With the teenage boys, we were able to ski together in the mornings, easily and quickly come in for lunch, and then go our separate ways in the afternoon. We also walked to town for dinner a few nights. The home is great in terms of comfort, decor, and amenities - top notch. We enjoyed the hot-tub every day and the boys had wireless for their computers. We made dinner and stayed in a few nights as well, and the kitchen was well-stocked for everything we needed. We would return here for sure, it was perfect !!

Amenities

From the Owner

We love Breckenridge just as much in the beautiful, clean and fresh mountain air of the summer as we do in the snowy winter where skiing, downhill and cross country, boarding, shoeing, sledding, ice skating, shopping, dining, clubbing or just great mountain walks are a thrill. A beautiful mountain lake is just up the hill from the condo which makes for a great mountain walk in both summer and winter. Our favorite moose, well you know, likes to hang out around that lake from time to time. Maybe you'll see him too! My son got engaged at that beautiful mountain setting one snowy evening. You'll love it! An incredible pristine setting!
