If you are planning a family reunion or some special milestone celebration and are looking for the option of vacation home, my friend Mary Liechty, has a beautiful property for your family to enjoy!
This is what Mary has to say about it:
“We live in Texas. We know hot!
Therefore, years ago my husband and his brother bought a home together in the mountains so that we could escape. The brothers are very close and we both have good sized families. We wanted something that would hold everyone. Well, it did at least before all the kids started having our grandchildren. We decided that being a little outside the busy town atmosphere of Breckenridge suited us just right so our six-bedroom, seven-bathroom house is just south of town on the border with Blue River, Colorado. We love the view from the balcony overlooking the summit.
Right from the start we knew we wanted to rent our lovely home and set it up to be a business that we could also enjoy ourselves. We used a popular listing agency everyone has heard of. It has been quite successful. When you want to take a vacation, you expect to pay a certain amount of money for the rooms you will stay in. You also expect to go out to eat for every meal. When you rent a home, this is not the case. They are often the same price as your accommodations alone. You could shop and buy either limited food for a quick breakfast or even more to provide several meals and eat out less. It almost doesn't matter what you end up spending for your groceries - it is never as much as would be spent to go out to eat all those meals. Then there are the living areas, the media rooms, pool tables and maybe even some outside amenities like a hot tub or a pool. Not many hotels can let you spread out and relax like a house can.
The location for a vacation home is quite important and Breckenridge is a great town. It has so much to offer no matter what season of the year you want to go. In the winter, of course there is amazing skiing and snowboarding because Breck has a terrain park and one of the biggest ski areas around. You can also sled, snowmobile, dog sled and even do some ice-skating at the arena on the south side of town. In the summer a whole new list of things is available from hiking or mountain climbing (several 14ers are quite close to Breck), to white water rafting, mountain biking, or horseback riding. The town plans so many activities during the year - parades, international ice-sculpture, art shows, music festivals...the list could go on. The lovely Blue River runs right through the heart of Breckenridge and you are never out of sight of the majestic mountains that tower over everything.
Although there are multiplied thousands of homes available for rent in Breckenridge or other locations, you probably won't blame me if I shamelessly promote our lovely mountain home. You can visit 36 Wagon Road LLC anytime there is availability. You can see many lovely pictures of the inside of our home on this site and check the calendar to see if the dates your group would like are open. If you have been thinking about renting a vacation home I encourage you to take the plunge. Most of the owners are very nice folks and I'm sure your group will have a great time.”
