Affectionately referred to as “Breck,” this is where you go for the quintessential Colorado experience. And whether you come during ski season or in the summer months, a Breckenridge vacation is one of leisure, variety and fun. The key is convenience: Breck is just a 2 hour drive from the Denver airport. Choose a ski in ski out condo, or catch a free shuttle to the resort and the endless entertainment on Main Street from one of our secluded cabin-style homes. You’ll never be far from the best runs, eats or drinks when you stay in a Breckenridge rental with InvitedHome. Learn More
You’ll quickly discover they don’t call it Summit County for nothing. Breckenridge is the crown jewel of the area, which contains the closest cluster of ski resorts to the Denver metro area, including: Arapahoe Basin, Keystone and Copper Mountain. Just make sure you rent a four-wheel drive vehicle if visiting in winter so you can navigate the often snowy highway I-70. It will be hard to believe the city of Denver is only 80 miles away when you admire the sprawling peaks from 9,600 feet above sea level.
Breck’s downtown area, centered around Main Street, features a vast variety of unique eateries and nightlife options. Enjoy live jazz with your dinner at Blue River Bistro. Grab a house-brewed pint and indulge in an elk burger at the Breckenridge Brewery. Stroll through the small shops and spruce up your wardrobe with a handmade scarf. Wherever you choose to wander, you’ll likely run into folks from the Colorado Front Range visiting for the weekend. Breckenridge has a distinctly local, American feel – as opposed to other resort towns like Aspen & Vail, where the European influence is more palpable.
Like many communities throughout Colorado, Breckenridge started out as a mining town. When the gold along the Blue River dried up, many feared Breck would become a ghost town. Now there’s a scary thought. But in came Breckenridge Ski Resort to the rescue. When it opened in 1961, I-70 wasn’t even complete. Yet they welcomed almost 17,000 skiers in that first season alone. Why? Because between the history and close proximity, people knew early on that this was truly a special place. And that sentiment continues to this day (as do the ever-popular ghost tours).
Breckenridge also has a rich history of innovation. Yes, you read that correctly. This tiny town is one skiing trailblazer. In 1981, Breck installed the world’s first high-speed quad chairlift on Peak 9. In 1984, it became Colorado’s first major resort to allow snowboarding. And on Christmas Day in 2013, Breckenridge opened Peak 6, one of the largest and most notable ski area terrain expansion North America had seen in the past decade. Featuring high-alpine, intermediate bowl skiing – a rare find in these parts – the 23% increase in the skiable acreage further showcased the resort’s forward thinking by crowdsourcing many of the peak’s trail and lift names through their own Facebook page.
Sure, Breck is known for its skiing and all things snow, but the summer months are nearly as popular. Adventure though the incredible hiking and biking trails throughout Summit County. Take a kayak out on nearby Lake Dillon. Or bring the kids to the Summer Fun Park at Breckenridge Resort for theme park style rides, games and attractions. No matter your age, you’ll feel like a kid again when you visit Breck in the summertime.
Whether you are looking for exciting family fun, are keen on taking advantage of the nightlife, or just want some world-class skiing or snowboarding, a Breckenridge vacation rental will surely do the trick. View all of our Breck homes below to get started.See less
