Take a look inside this mountain home located in Breckenridge, Colorado, United States. The modern mountain vacation home can accommodate up to 12 guests with 3 bedrooms, and 2 full bathrooms. The mountain home is just minutes from Breckenridge. The Wilderness cabin is a modern mountain retreat in the town of Blue River. Unlike many properties in the area, it is easily accessed from Highway 9 and only a five-minute drive to Main Street dining/shopping and ski resort gondola parking. The Wilderness is a high-efficiency, green design by Blu Homes (as featured in Dwell magazine) completed in 2009. The vacation property is located near the end of a quiet road and backs to National Forest Service land. The most dramatic feature of its open floor plan is the twenty-foot ceilings, and walls of windows that truly bring nature into the main living space, and is complemented by the modern finish and furnishings found throughout.
Guests of the Wilderness vacation home will enjoy a fully equipped chef’s kitchen, complete with Bosch appliances and a large prep island/breakfast bar. The custom dining table seats ten comfortably, and the breakfast bar seats four. Guests will love the outdoor space with ample seating and views of the spruce and aspen forests. The outdoor gas fireplace is a wonderful gathering spot year-round, and an oversized hammock and kids’ sandbox are welcomed additions for the summer months. As of June 2017, the Wilderness also offers now a custom-built outdoor Wind River spa for guests equipped with twin 5hp pumps (versus the more common, single 3hp pump configuration) to work out the kinks of your ski or cycle day. The outdoor living space was not compromised by the addition, as an extension to the concrete patio was constructed to accommodate this new amenity.
The Wilderness has three large bedrooms including a main bedroom with one king-size bed, a guest bedroom with one queen-size bed, a bunk room with four twin beds, plus an open loft area with convertible sofa beds to include two full-size beds. It offers one full bathroom located near the guest sleeping quarters (with a full-size HE washer/dryer) and an en suite bathroom in the main bedroom. Four adults and four children are comfortably accommodated in the bedrooms, and four additional adults are in the loft. Wilderness is outfitted with two HD TVs, full premium cable channels, Xfinity DVR, and a Boston Acoustic sound system in the main living space.
The loft area also has a desk with an LCD monitor for connecting laptops, and the entire home is served by high-speed wireless Internet. Its dramatic contemporary design, comfortable living spaces, and convenient location will make your stay at Wilderness a truly unique Breckenridge experience for the entire family.
