Property Details

Updated: Sep 22, 2014
Ski-in chalet next to the slopes with 5 BRs, 2 wood burning fireplaces, hot tub

'Waldhaus' is a fabulous single family home, right next to the base of Peak 8, at a premier location for skiing in the winter (SKI-IN) and biking/hiking in the summer. The large window in the vaulted living room provides a beautiful view of the majestic mountain range.

Two separate living areas with fireplaces and flat-screen TVs with VCR/DVD/Blu-ray and CD player allow the extended family to comfortably spread out. High-speed wireless internet and a large selection of TV channels keep you connected.

Enjoy direct access to the slopes of Peak 8 and most marvelous trails of the area. In the winter Peak 8 is the first area to get loads of snow, ski-in is quasi guaranteed at all times!

Relax in the very private hot tub after a fun day on the slopes, biking or hiking.

WINTER: Ski-in from Trygves Run and get out to the slopes with a short walk via the property lot and 4-O'Clock Run Rd, or down the road to the base of Peak 8. The base of Peak 8 is the true hub of the mountain for skiers and non-skiers alike, housing 'One Ski Hill Place' with dining, bar, grill, live-music, and a huge heated patio open year-round looking at the mountain. All this less than 300 yards from the house.

If downhill is not for you, the Nordic center is a short walk away.

SUMMER: An extensive network of mountain bike and hiking trails starts directly behind the house. The base of Peak 8 hosts the “Fun Park”, which provides summer mountain fun for the whole family: Gold Runner Coaster, Alpine Superslide, Gemstone Panning, Mineshaft Maze, Rockpile Climbing Wall, Superbungee Trampoline, Bounce House, as well as: Breck 4x4 Tours, Brecktreks Guided Hiking Tours, Mountain Biking, Superputt Mini Golf, Free Scenic Gondola Rides, and Scenic Chairlift Rides up into the mountain!

New: the “Tenmile Flyer Zipline” is departing at Peak 8 as well. You can reach speeds of up to 45 mph while sailing 50 feet high up in the air!

The chalet sits on an oversized and beautifully wooded lot for kids to roam around & build tree houses. Private patio with adirondack chairs (out only in the summer and fall) and hot tub. And the popular Peak 8 Fun Park is right next door!

Town: town is less than a mile away and is connected via the Gondola, the free bus system that stops at the base of Peak 8, hiking trails and the road. Shopping (groceries, liquor store, etc.) are located a short walk from the Gondola. Ride the Gondola 'down'-town to get your groceries if you like!

Absolutely No Smoking and No Pets.

Rates are excluding Colorado / Summit County sales tax. There is no Breckenridge resort tax for this property.

Sweet set up!

  • 5 of 5
What a fantastic place! My friends and I arrived to Waldhaus and were pleasantly surprised at the amount of space. Both upstairs and downstairs had great amenities. The bedrooms and bathrooms were clean, neat, and private. The hot tub atmosphere was perfect for relaxing after a day on the hill. The kitchen was well equipped. And the garage made it easy to store equipment. Skiing in for skiers was no problem, but a little tricky on a snowboard. The Waldhaus is an "as advertised" property. The pictures are true to form and the details online ate accurate. The owners are great at communicating...Thank you Waldhaus!

Pleasant rustic ski destination

  • 4 of 5
This house was convenient to the slopes, town, and warm and cozy with electric baseboard heaters and plenty of hot Water for those long après ski showers. Nice large hot tub with easy access. Simple furnishings along the 'antlers and bears' motif. Beds were comfy, covers were adequate. Could have used some more pillows.
Kitchen was missing some basics ( hot mitts, cookie sheets, 9x13 pans) but made up for it with a helpful spice cabinet and basic cooking supplies in the pantry cabinet. We added to these on our way out. Gas grill on the balcony. Could have used a couple more tv s and another game system. We had great weather, but I'd hate to have 10 people snowed in with just a Wii!
Overall things were as described Except that everybody's idea of ski- in is somewhat subjective. IMHO, if I have to take off my skis to Ski IN, then I'm not skiing IN !!
I felt that Waldhaus was fairly priced and well-appointed and I would return to stay again.

We had an excellent vacation at this property, which was exactly as advertised. The owner was immediately responsive to our needs, and any small issues were immediately addressed. I would highly recommend this property to skiers and lovers of the mountains.

Exceeded Expectations

  • 4 of 5
Very cozy comfortable accommodations and plenty of space to spread out. Would recommend a toboggan type sled if skiing and having to walk to slopes carrying all of your equipment. Also works well to tote kids in since the home is a bit of a walk to/from the base of peak 8. Did ski in to the property which was an adventure. Great location and the home offered more amenities than expected...wii play system, 2 living areas, towels for hot tub etc. The reason for 4 stars vs. 5 was that the hot tub was not working when we were there which was a bummer, and it is a little more of a walk to/from the slopes than expected, but overall a great home and location. Would recommend this home to others and stay again.

Unforgettable Christmas.

  • 5 of 5
Superb and very spacious Chalet with all the necessary equipments and even more (especially for the kitchen). It's ideally located near the Peak 8 base area, Ski-in possible for moderately experienced.

The owners are very friendly and always ready to ensure a perfect stay. They even set up a Christmas tree for us.

We had an unforgettable christmas at Waldhaus.

Wonderful Breckenridge Home!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay in this Peak 8 home. Adults & kids were completely comfortable and had plenty to keep them busy. The bedding was very comfortable - a definite plus! The hot tub was great, and the location was excellent - especially for the skiers in the group. the owners were great to work with - very attentive. Overall, a wonderful experience & we will be back!

Location

From the Owner

Peak 8 is Breckenridge's first ski development and gets snow first and keeps it the longest - allowing to ski-in the entire season. Whether you ski, hike or bike, you want to live right where the action is, not touch the car, and not haul any equipment. The convenience of downtown Breckenridge is just a Gondola ride away and parking in town is free if limited to a few hours or for dinner.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Denver International Airport (DIA) at 105 Miles Nearest Motorway : I-70 at 10 Miles Nearest Beach : Frisco Marina at 9 Miles Nearest Barpub : Breckenridge Main Street (1.2 miles) or Peak 8 at 0.2 Miles Nearest Ski : Trygves / 4-O'Clock Run, Peak 8 at 0.2 Miles Nearest Golf : Breckenridge Golf Club at 5.5 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Breckenridge Main Street (1.2 miles) or Peak 8 at 0.2 Miles Car: not necessary

The base of Peak 8 is the first and last area to see snow and open their lifts. The house is 300 yards from the slopes, ski-in conditions permitting. Peak 8 is also where the action is in the summer. Take the gondola 'down'-town to shop for groceries.

Amenities

From the Owner

'Waldhaus' is extremely secluded right in the National Forest, offering a private hot-tub under the stars, yet a stone-throw away from Vail Resort's #1 hotel in Breckenridge, the Gondola and downtown. Ski-in from the hustle and bustle of the resort into total privacy and silence.
