Guestbook comments from the owner

OMG I couldn’t have asked for a better 40th B-Day weekend! My wonderful husband planned for both sides of our family to gather at this lovely home to celebrate my birthday. I couldn’t have asked for anything better! There were 18 of us ranging in age from 3 to 63. There was more laughter, giggles and cuddles shared in your home than you could ever imagine. The sounds and the smells took me back to my childhood at the farm when families would gather for holiday….sigh…how I miss those times. What a treasure this will always be for me and my family.

Your home is incredible, the view is incredible, and our time was incredible! Thank you, thank you for sharing this blessed place with us and we wish many blessings to you in return. They say you only turn twenty oops I mean forty. Ha, ha, ha once, and it’s a good thing, this can’t be topped. I close this as family packs and clears out. The time has ended but our memories will last forever!

One last thank you!

Great place but...

  • 4 of 5
The house was great! View was beautiful! Couple things I wish I knew before we arrived though: altitude at 10,000 feet unfortunately caused sickness with almost everyone in our party.Coming from IL we knew about altitude sickness but we weren't prepared for how bad it hit us. Finally, we were told to call the handy man if we had any problems but where not informed that we would be charged a fee if he had to come out. Wish it was listed how much we would be charged by the hour ahead of time. We were not aware that the plumbing was in the garage. It would have been nice to be given more details besides the number of bedrooms/bathrooms, etc.

Owner's Response: Two Mile High is located above 10,000 feet. Acute mountain sickness is unpredictable and can occur in some visitors beginning at elevations above 8000 feet (this includes the town of Breckenridge). We are sorry that this family experienced symptoms and discomfort. Drink plenty of water, avoid alcohol and excess exertion to reduce symptoms and seek medical attention if the symptoms increase or do not subside.

The renters were charged for a maintenance call on Christmas night due to a report of frozen pipes. It is not our practice to charge against the security deposit, but in this case, it was determined the garage door had been left open in -13 deg F weather.

The Home Away website contains information for the home, and guests are referred to the home website and provided extensive information before arrival. Additionally, there are complete instructions for major household systems located in the guest binder at the home, available upon arrival.

Great house for an extended family gathering

  • 5 of 5
We gathered for a 50th wedding anniversary. The number and variety of rooms made it easy to accomodate multiple families with small children, with a fantastic master suite for the grandparents. The house came equipped with high chair, pack and play, bouncy chair, and toys and puzzles to keep the kids entertained. Outside, there was a play fort with rock climbing wall, sandbox, and slide, and a swing set for the kids, and a hot tub for the adults. The view of the mountain and the nearby beaver ponds is great. We enjoyed some local hikes (Blue Lake in particular was a favorite draw) and South Park City in Fairplay, as well as some trips into Breckenridge central (the house is a few miles outside the town center, which was just fine with us, but you would need a car).

Kitchen was well stocked and the house was clean and in good shape. Lots of TVs and DVD players throughout the house. Having laundry facilities on hand was helpful.

Great spot for whole family

  • 5 of 5
This was a fantastic place if you enjoy being out of the busyness of a tourist destination (Breckenridge), yet still want easy access. Our whole family, from grandparents to kids, had a blast and enjoyed both the personal privacy the home provided as well as the great open spaces (inside and out) where we could all congregate. The kitchen, dining and living rooms are excellent for all to gather comfortably. We had two families (one with 3 kids the other with 5 kids) and grandparents (14 of us in all). The large bedrooms gave every couple a nice, private room and the kids could easily pile into the other large rooms (one with bunks). The fishing pond was a huge hit and the little playground was great for the little ones. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. It will definitely be talked about for years to come.

Our family celebrated Christmas in Colorado--the house was all we hoped it would be. The large kitchen accommodated our many family meals, the bedrooms allowed for plenty of space for everyone, the house was clean, beds and linens wonderful, TV and DVD great for watching Christmas movies, and the fireplace was warm and inviting. The view from the living room--priceless! Alan and Linda were most helpful through the whole process--thank you!

Best of the Best!

It was glorious! We loved the house and the location. It was breathtaking! Yep, the difference in weather is astounding! We arrived back in Jacksonville, Florida to a hot, hot day of 95 and high humidity. It was a perfect week. Your house is extraordinary with all the amenities. You thought of every luxury to the house. In the 15 years that we have been renting vacation homes around the world, your home was the best of all. You thought of everything and it was so appreciated. Not to mention, you were wonderful to work with.
