Location + Surroundings
This vacation rental is located in the Shock Hill neighborhood of Breckenridge, Colorado, where it is conveniently situated just 0.2 miles from the Shock Hill Breckconnect Gondola stop and less than five minutes from the Breckenridge Ski Resort, the Breckenridge Nordic Center, and the Cucumber Gulch Wildlife Preserve. The entrance to the latter is just a third of a mile away, leading to a series of hiking, biking, and cross-country skiing trails that wind through 77 acres of wetlands, which provide habitats to boreal toads, beavers, and 47 species of birds.
Just over a mile away, guests will find some of Colorado's most sought-after slopes at the Breckenridge Ski Resort. Boasting five peaks, 187 trails, 3,398 feet of vertical rise, and 2,908 acres of skiable terrain, the resort is certainly one of Breckenridge's premier attractions. However, there is much more to the area than just world-class skiing and snowboarding; Breckenridge is also a gateway to the surrounding White River National Forest—the most visited national forest in the entire United States.
Here, guests will find a vast, 2.3-million-acre expanse of forested foothills, mountains, and valleys interspersed with alpine lakes, streams, and rivers. Exploring its extensive, 2,500-mile network of trails, guests will pass many scenic vistas and will encounter some of the abundant wildlife that calls the forest home, such as deer, elk, moose, mountain goats, and mountain sheep.
About seven miles to the north of Breckenridge, guests will find the Dillon Reservoir (also known as Lake Dillon). Encompassing 3,233 acres of pristine water full of rainbow trout, providing visitors with two full-service marinas from which they can rent watercraft, and featuring 26.8 miles of shoreline surrounded by hiking, biking, and snowmobiling trails, the reservoir is a popular, year-round destination for outdoor recreation. At its southern end, the reservoir flows out into the Blue River, which provides prime spots for fly fishing and whitewater rafting.
Finally, the town of Breckenridge is an attraction in its own right. Arising from a mining camp in the mid-19th century, the 45-block, nationally registered historic district of the town retains its Gold Rush-era, Victorian-style architecture, which today houses numerous restaurants, bars, live music venues, boutiques, art galleries, and spas.
While the vacation rental feels a world away from the hustle and bustle of modern life, it is only an hour and 30 minutes from Denver, where guests will find the nearest international airport. Read More

With one of Colorado's premier ski resorts, a recreational lake, a whitewater river, a bustling historic town, and 2.3 million acres of the most popular national forest all within close proximity to the vacation rental, guests will be able to enjoy a wide range of outdoor activities during their getaway, both in the winter and the summer.
For skiing and snowboarding, guests can hit the slopes on the 187 trails of Breckenridge Ski Resort. For cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, guests will find 31 miles of trails at the Breckenridge Nordic Center, while snowmobiling trails can be found around the Dillon Reservoir.
At the reservoir, guests can also go boating, sailing, canoeing, kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, and fishing, with rentals, tours, and lessons available through the Frisco Bay Marina and the Dillon Marina. For whitewater rafting, guests can head down the Blue River with local outfitters such as Breckenridge Whitewater Rafting, which also offers zip-lining, rock climbing, horseback riding, and fly fishing expeditions.
Circling around the Dillon Reservoir, guests will find an 18-mile paved biking path. A number of trails for biking and hiking can also be found extending out into the forest right from the town of Breckenridge, where guests will find the Riverwalk, Snowflake, Illinois Creek, Carter Park, and Iowa Hill trailheads. For more hiking, White River National Forest offers a virtually inexhaustible array of options, with 2,500 miles of trails in total.
For golfing, guests can hit the links at the 27-hole Breckenridge Golf Club. For indoor activities, guests can visit the Breckenridge Recreation Center, where they will find tennis courts, basketball courts, racquetball courts, swimming pools, hot tubs, a sauna, and exercise equipment, among other facilities. For dining, entertainment, and relaxation, guests will find 76 bars and restaurants, 203 shops and boutiques, and 18 museums and art galleries in and around Breckenridge.
