Luxury Lodge Tucked Between Blue River & Mountain Views – A Haven for Families

Once our family decided to buy in Breckenridge, we hit the ground running. We searched for two years to find the perfect year-round lodge close to town but immersed in nature.

A couple of places came close; most just didn’t have everything we were looking for.

Eventually, after a heated family debate, we decided our best option was not to buy our dream lodge after all, but build it.

And so Cold Water Creek Lodge was born – a 5-bedroom family-friendly lodge just 5 miles from Breckenridge.

Building our ideal place gave us (and our guests!) two BIG benefits.

THE BEST PIECE OF LAND IN BRECKENRIDGE

Cold Water Creek Lodge sits on 13 acres of riverfront property caught between stunning views of the Quandary Peak out the front door, and Red Mountain and the Blue River out the back door. Wildlife sightings – elk, beaver, moose, deer – are common. You’ll forget you’re only 5 miles from town.

Here, you can fall asleep to the rush of water over rocks, and wake to morning coffee with a view of the mountain and deer grazing along the riverbank.

You can step out the back door and be ten feet from fly fishing in the river’s cold and pristine waters. Out front door, and you’re in prime hiking territory with Summit County’s best trail – the McCullough Gulch Trail – winding through the property.

We installed two hot-tub and fire-pit areas (in both the front and back of the lodge) for your family’s own private après-ski and full enjoyment of the magnificent scenery through all four seasons.

In winter, seven world-class resorts are within an hour drive. Even better, WE PROVIDE TWO LIFT TICKETS A DAY as part of your stay. (Inquire for more info.)

Warm your ski boots in our boot warmer for toasty toes.

And after you return from the slopes, defrost in the 8-person hot tub with views of snow-capped Quandary Peak. Or duck inside and enjoy the heat from the floor-to-ceiling fireplace in the Great Room.

In fall, the whole scene bursts into yellow as the aspens play out their autumn drama. Light a crackling fire at the fire-pit, gather around the Adirondack chairs and enjoy the crisp Colorado air.

In spring and summer, the mountains present endless activities and deep green vistas.

A FAMILY-FRIENDLY PLACE

Building also meant we could design the house, from the ground up, to be ideal for families. We love hosting multigenerational family reunions or multiple families traveling together.

Kids and dogs find plenty of space to run around, and the private and paved road with few cars keeps them safe (and also means quick, traffic-free trips into town.)

We provide pack-n-play and a high chair, too.

We even gave kids their own section of the house, called the Bunkhouse, with a gameroom where they can decamp together for video games on the LCD flatscreen with Nintendo Wii, movies on Netflix, or a game of air hockey. Add a few mugs of hot chocolate and you’ll have some happy kids.

The attached bunkroom with three bunk beds provide a summer camp setting for telling stories by flashlight past bedtime. They get their own attached bathroom, too, and in the gameroom, there’s also a couch that folds out into a queen bed.

The living areas are open to each other, and cozy for conversation, shared meals, and poker in the adult cardroom. The windows in the Great Room overlook a spectacular view of Quandary Peak.

The kitchen has high-end GE Monogram appliances (including 2 dishwashers!), granite countertops, and heated floors made from reclaimed pine found right here in Summit County. Flip some pancakes and serve them at the granite breakfast bar!

EVERYONE GETS A GREAT BEDROOM

No need to rush to claim the best bedrooms when you arrive. We made them all pretty great. All have their own private, attached bathroom. If you’ve traveled as a group before, you know how essential that is!

We also provide cozy comforters and butter soft sheets and flatscreen TVs in every single room.

We’d love to help make your Breckenridge getaway wonderful, so let us know what we can do.

There is no slow season at Cold Water Creek, thanks to our year-round amenities and activities. We encourage you to book today, using the yellow “Book It” button to the right. Thanks!

Why Mark Ronchetti chose Breckenridge Area

After looking all over Summit County and finding some great locations we settled on the McCullough Gulch Reserve to build our Colorado vacation home. The Blue River is literally ten feet behind the house. The best hikes in Summit county border the property. With 13 acres you can stretch out and get away from it all with Breck just a few miles down the road. As great as many areas around Breck are you will not beat this location or this house. The views are classic stunning Colorado with all the conveniences of being right next to one of the best ski towns in North America.

What makes this house unique

The Cold Water Creek Lodge sits on 13 acres of Blue River frontage just south of Breckenridge. You can be skiing Breckenridge within 5 minutes of leaving the Lodge. Don't want to drive? No problem we are on the bus route right to the ski area. Out the front door of the Lodge you can hike the most stunning trail in Summit County, the McCullough Gulch Trail. This hike features breathtaking waterfalls and high mountain lakes. Out the back door of the Lodge you can fish the Blue River. You will have two miles of river all to yourself.

Amazing home, beautifully designed and equipped for large groups or families.

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay. The views from the front and back of the home are incomparable! The bunk and play room for the youngsters invaluable. The sound of the Blue River just a few feet from the house was beautiful! Highly recommended!!!

This is a fantastic place to relax in a mountain setting. Trees and river couldn't be better!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful siblings and spouses reunion in this beautiful home. There were ten of us and each couple had their own bed room and private bathroom. The bathrooms were even supplied with big bottles of shampoo, conditioner and bodywash!

The kitchen was fully equipped! We brought a number of items we didn't expect to find there and found that they were already there!

There were even spices and various condiments in the cupboards and refrigerators!

Two copper sinks with garbage disposals in both made meal prep easier. Stainless steel appliances and granite countertops (in the bathrooms as well) were beautiful and easy to maintain.

The whole home had true mountain elegance with massive wood beams, wood plank floors, huge windows and lots of space. Both outside hot tubs were used as were both of the gas fire pits.

The home is situated in very private setting with no visible neighbors. The river in the backyard was incredible! With the windows open you could hear it splashing over the rocks.

The wildflowers were in full bloom. So many varieties!

There a spectacular views from all the windows. They couldn't be better!

If you come from sea level or a lower altitude, remember that you will be at about 10,500 feet. Expect to take a little time to adjust to the altitude.

The owner, Mark, was great to work with. He responded very quickly to questions we had in booking this home and in prepairing for our week's stay. He made everything easy.

If we ever stay in Breckenridge again it will be at Cold Water Creek Lodge! Our stay could not have been better! Many thanks to the Ronchetties for sharing their beautiful hone with us!

Wonderful house for a family reunion. We had 16 people and everyone still has their privacy.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time for our family reunion. We had 8 adults and 8 children. Private bathrooms for each couple and the kids loved the bunkhouse. The air hockey table was a hit for all. Even the adults.

The scenery was gorgeous. Having the river right behind the house was like being on the beach and hearing the waves. The river was running rapidly making a wonderful sound to fall asleep to.

The kitchen was stocked with all the cooking utensils and dishes we needed. With 16 people and eating most of our meals at the house it was great to have 2 dishwashers. We would rotate and ran one dishwasher after every meal.

So much space for everyone to be together or retreat to themselves. The mud room with all the cubbie holes was great to organize all the kids shoes and supplies. Whoever designed this house had reunions like ours in mind.

Loved walking on the trails close to the house also. We hired a photographer for family pictures and there were many places outside to get our shots.

Had a couple of hot tub issues but we're resolved promptly. The property owner Mark was so helpful and resolved any issue we had. In fact we had a goody basket delivered to our house for any inconvenience caused because of the hot tub. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and if we ever return to Breckenridge we would definitely stay here again.

This facility is spectacular!; having more than enough rooms and space for our family of ten.

  • 5 of 5

The grandchildren especially enjoyed the bunk room and air hockey table. The facility is in somewhat of an isolated area providing privacy, and yet still close to town and other activities. We enjoyed the Blue River located just off the back patio and the moose and fox which visited regularly. We were able to fish,hike, mountain bike and ATV in close surrounding areas. The owner promptly addressed a few minor issues and sent a lovely gift basket which we all enjoyed.

Enjoyed our stay immensely, however some dishes, silverware and cookware were not clean when we removed them for use. Otherwise the home was clean and comfortable; in excellent condition.
