"We had a great visit and made lots of great memories! The house really was perfect - it was clean, close to town, all the right equipment was provided in the kitchen to make a full Thanksgiving meal and the high chair and baby gate were a lifesaver! Thank you for sharing your house so that we could make mountain memories to last a lifetime!" - Stephanie G., 11/30/2013

What a wonderful place to stay in Breckenridge. The house is in a small neighborhood on the hill just south (I think) and walkable to the town's main street; yet it seems worlds away b/c it is on a brook trout stream next to which is a fire pit (with logs); the hot-tub faces this stream so that you hear nothing but water carried by between the trees (and there are plenty of trees to provide a sense of forest) and inside the back lower deck is a pool table and game room. On the upper deck is a gas outdoor grill which we used a couple times to cook steaks and burgers. The interior is very nicely laid out and you can adjust the lighting with dimmer switches -- key feature, I think; we really do think the pictures don't do this place justice -- it is really a nicely thought out space with a good feel and very comfortable. If you rent here, I don't think you will be disappointed as it manages to delivery effectively on many different fronts concurrently and in a balanced way. Lastly it has radiant heated floors -- nice touch and energy efficient. - Derek S., , 11/12/2013

Our family goes to Breckenridge every Labor Day to celebrate my husband's birthday. We have a good size group (us, our grown children and our grandchildren). This is the 2nd time we have stayed at River's Edge. It is a family favorite. The house size is perfect for us. We love the large deck in back (a safe place for the little ones to play) and the sound of the Blue River rushing by. We will be back!!!! Love it! The Reese/Tuttle/Brown family." - Julia R., Golden, CO, 09/03/2013

Great house, had a great time with 11 adults and 5 children. Plenty of space and the amenities (fire pit, big deck with grill, river access, free shuttle to town, pool table, hot tub) gave everyone the ability to spread out and do as they wished. The house is very well equipped with EVERYTHING we needed to make our stay memorable. Of the houses we've stayed in the last 4 years Rivers Edge was the best suited to a great family vacation." - Chris M., Overland Park,ks, 08/03/2013

Our group has spent Thanksgiving here for the last 4 years. Just love it, plenty of room for kids and adults. Fun early skiing, great location. Kitchen well equipped for big dinners! Thanks for letting us have fun memories with family and friends here at Rivers Edge!"

We left at 6:30 am and had a smooth trip home. We had a wonderful stay with some magnificent skiing and loads of other fun stuff on the side. The house was perfect for us, the sleeping arrangements meant no-one had to be on a sofa bed waiting for everyone else to go to bed and the kids all had their own beds. That's a great selling point for your place over many others of a similar size. Also the proximity to the bus made coming and going at different times easy which is also important for a large group. Thanks again." - Sam, , 02/02/2012

What a wonderful house and location. It was great to sit on the fabulous desk during the day, to have hot dogs and s'mores around the fire (along with beverages), and it was great to fall asleep at night listening to the river roar by. Great house. It was nice to get the extended family together to visit over meals and not be on top of one another. The added bonus was that our dogs were able to stay with us as well!" - Becky T., Houston, TX, 08/24/2011

This house was just perfect for our little family reunion of 6 adults, 2 children and 1 dog. We had plenty of room! The home was just beautiful both inside and out. We loved taking walks in this neighborhood and enjoyed sitting by the river, listening to it rush by. The location was very convenient, as it's so close to town (but still private on a very quiet street.) We only ate out once as the home offered everything we needed to cook. We loved our family meals out on the back deck and in the large dinning room (only when it rained.) We enjoyed many attractions while visiting: panning for gold, gondola rides, chuck wagon tour, hiking, a train ride, walking around the beautiful town of Breckenridge and fishing. The home was beautifully furnished and had everything we needed to make our visit special and extremely comfortable. I would highly recommend this home to anyone!!!" - Jennifer, MA, 07/24/2011

We enjoyed our stay in Breckenridge over Christmas this year, largely due to the excellent accomodations. The house is roomy and family friendly - we had ages 4-74 and everyone had a good time. The downstairs rec room was perfect for the teenagers to have some space to watch movies or play pool and the little ones could help grandma bake cookies in the well equipped kitchen. The bus stop to town and the slopes was right around the corner, close enough for convenience but not so close as to get the noise from the buses. It was nice for those in our group to have the independence to head out to ski or into town whenver they wanted, or to head home from the slopes for lunch. The bus was reliable and very easy to figure out. Everything was just perfect! Thank you for sharing your home with us Maria, we had a very merry Christmas in Breckenridge!" - Allyson, Fort Collins, 01/02/2012

We just got home from the Labor Day weekend in Breckenridge. We have stayed in a lot of houses and always had very nice weekends, but this one was really special. The house was great, of course, but we all think that a big part of what made the weekend so nice was your firepit on the river. The kids were drawn to it and they actually talked to each other instead of spending tons of time in front of the tv! Just wanted you to know that everything went very well and we enjoyed being there" - Tom, Evergreen, Co, 09/07/2009

"Dear Maria, We have such fond memories of our family vacation in Breckenridge, and the central thing that made it so pleasant was your home. It is truly amazing - a place where each can find a spot to be quiet, or a place to gather together. You are very fortunate, and we are very fortunate that you share it with others. Thank you. And thank you for furnishing and equipping it so well. We lacked for nothing. In the activity scene, the raft trip down the Colorado from Kremmling was by far the favorite - especially for the 8 1/2 & 9 year old boys, who were in the splash-center front of the raft! The also loved the Alpine Slide, the hike to Lily Pad Lake, the pontoon boat on Lake Dillon, and the 4th of July festivities. Breckenridge puts on a fabulous fireworks show! Of course I can't ignore the almost-nightly fires in the firepit for just enjoying and for roasting marshmallows! What a nice feature! A ride for the "oldies" up Hoosier Pass and Boreas Pass with walks in the woods for wildflower photography was beautiful. I should mention that during our family photograph session in your backyard (my sister is a professional photographer, so she came equipped), your neighbor to the left (facing the River) told us of a bear in their backyard. Also, your double oven is making a VERY LOUD buzz when it is turned off. Hope I haven't made this too long, but did want to take the time after things settled down to thank you again. I wish you many, many, happy times in your Colorado retreat! " - Caroline M., Richardson, TX, 07/05/2009

What a wonderful house you have chosen for your family! And we are so grateful you have chosen to share it with strangers. The house was perfect for our 10 - my sister from NC and our 2 sons and their families. The firepit was a hit with all and the downstairs area is so great for the kids. Weather was great for our hikes, river rafting, Lake Dillon pontoon boat, town excursions and July 4th activities. We were happy to be able to gather around yoru dining table for meals and our many games. Just a lovely place to be! Thanks." - Mecom family, Texas, 07/04/09

Had a wonderful time in this beautiful home for a family reunion. There were eleven people in all and there was plenty of room. We had a couple of snow days with a a high of 10 degrees and did not need to turn on the heat at all. The fireplace worked great to add any warmth. Nancy introduced herself to us just as we arrived and was very kind to offer suggestions or any help we might need. We skied in Breckenridge and also went to Vail which was relatively close - about an hour trip door to the slopes. Also found that for grocery shopping you really have to go to City Market to get what you need. We definitely want to come back some day. our family came from Fort Collins, Denver, El Cajon California and San Diego. Everything was fabulous. Thanks!" - Rosenburg, San Diego, CA,

We had a Summit County wedding in September and Rivers Edge was our home base. The house was perfect for us...everyone raved about it over and over! We would love to come back and spend another weekend there sometime. The hot tub was at 105, the firepit was lots of fun, the pool table, the theater room - the master bed was extremely cozy and loved having the space in the bathroom to get ready. We decorated it with fall decorations for the weekend - little pumpkins and squash and indian corn, fall colored candled, and flowers and candles in every room - it was beautiful. The weather turned out to be perfect the entire weekend, and we were so happy about that. We had a big dinner there on Friday night, the wedding at Sapphire Point on Saturday and the wedding reception on Saturday at Cafe Alpine - which was fabulous. Hung out by the firepit on Saturday night, then out on the town on Sunday. Anyway - thanks again and please let us know if anything looked out of place or anything - we made a huge effort to not leave any messes behind... and recycled like crazy too. " - Kendall M., Louisville, CO

We enjoyed your beautiful mountain home immensely. Lots of room for everyone - 4 kids and 8 adults. The theatre room, pool table, hot tub, firepit and The Blue were all great amenities. Everyone enjoyed the deck once the rains stopped. Even the little ones asked "will we ever get to come back here again?" Thanks for sharing with us! " - Garrett,
