Sunny, south facing, and super cozy. The house rents quickly every winter with a 4/5 month lease to a family or group.

Our guests are very grateful that they can have their dog and not pay the high prices of typical Breckenridge and Summit County. We value charging less for a good rental.

Important to note: house is located on a locally maintained dirt road. Occasional potholes and must have four-wheel/ all wheel-drive during snowy months. Driveway is flat and also plowed. No dishwasher. House layout is very open with visual privacy between each sleeping area. But no doors on the bedrooms.

About Holly Holmes

Steve and I bought this property in 1993 when we first met while living in Summit County. It was a vacant lot and we thought about building a large home and garage. Well, we never built the huge house, and we turned the 3 car garage space into a cabin with one garage space. The layout is unique for this reason. The property grew with us and became our mountain retreat that brought us together with our growing family. Steve built the cabin with his brother and brother in law and added many unique touches. Everyone in the family contributed and has enjoyed this space.

Why Holly Holmes chose Breckenridge

This property has amazing access to a beautiful, lesser known area of Summit County just south of Breckenridge up against the Ten Mile Range and Mosquito Range for hiking, backcountry skiing, ice climbing, Tenth Mt. Huts, and killer mountain biking. It's close enough to ski to Peak 9 chair lifts on a crispy powdery morning (30-45 min on the Burrro Trail) and sneak into town to enjoy the pleasures of Breck without the stress of too much traffic and people.

What makes this house unique

People love the view to the south while being snuggled up in the trees. Wildlife: moose, fox, chipmunks, birds, lynx.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Exceptional value for the rental of a house. House was modern with beautiful woodwork and a pleasure to look out big windows at beautiful mountains and pine trees. Beds were very comfortable and house was very clean. We liked how easy it was to get into town, about 7 minutes. Moose in the yard one day. The house was stocked with lots of extras that saved trips into town. House apparently just got WiFi which was nice for working on our computers. The owners were very friendly and prompt in answering all of our questions. We really want to come again when there is snow! Thanks for the great mountain experience.

Great little hidaway

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is in a great location, not too close but not too far from town. It was very well kept and well appointed, and you can't beat the view from the side porch! Highly recommended!

Our house up in the trees for a month!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful smaller house in a very quiet woodsy part of breckenridge. Holly and Steve for very responsive to all our needs. We loved this experience so much that we bought our own house just around the corner. We aware that the drive up gets steep just before the house--probably requires four wheel drive during winter season. Highly recommend this vacation rental!

A Great Breck Escape

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Holly's place in Breckenridge! It has a great location, close to town for easy access to shopping, groceries, and restaurants, but removed enough to enjoy nature: terrific access to trails, clear star-filled skies, beautiful mountain views, and visits from foxes.

The non-traditional layout worked well for us as a couple with an infant, but as mentioned in the description, might not be a fit for multi-couple or multi-family rental groups that demand a lot of privacy.

Overall, we'd definitely recommend it!
