Close your eyes and dream of a peaceful getaway set next to a running stream. Now open them. You’re looking at Riffel’s River Retreat, a beautifully furnished brand new home located in the forest with a river running through the back yard. This pet-friendly home just 10 minutes away from Main Street is perfect for a family vacation or a group of friends looking to spend some time together. And with the included gondola parking pass, skiing access is a breeze. It’s got the all the features a mountain enthusiast could ask for, coupled with all the modern comforts that will make your stay easy. You’ll be counting your lucky stars while you roast marshmallows and share stories out at the firepit. Just don’t lose track counting when you look up and see the night sky filled with them. And if the weather gets stormy outside, don’t worry - you can always enjoy one of the two fireplaces inside, and watch a movie on one of the two flatscreens while you’re at it. Whether you’re coming to hike, ski, or just hang out, this 4 bedroom home with fine wood finishes and mountain furniture is an unbeatable getaway for your group of up to 9 guests.

Perfect Retreat!

Riffel's River Retreat was the perfect home base for our family vacation in Breckenridge. The house had ample room for our extended family and dogs. The furnishings and amenities made for a very comfortable and relaxing stay. The location was ideal, close enough to town but far enough to provide privacy. We give this house our highest recommendation and would definitely stay here again.

Great house, location and set-up. We couldn't have been happier. Everything was as advertised. Would the owner be interested in selling the house? Thanks,
