Description from owner

Our family has owned this magical home for nearly 25 years. The locals call our home 'Forest Haus' because of its location and serene setting. We call it our 'Breckenridge Escape' because when we get away from the hustle and bustle of our everyday life it renews our spirit every time we visit. You can't overestimate the value of a great vacation. Our home is a 'difference maker' in that regard! I am sure you have heard the saying 'location; Location; LOCATION'!!

Our home offers family style luxury accommodations in a private setting on a 1 1/2 acre lot, with towering blue spruces surrounding the property line and the soothing sound of the wind whispering through the trees. The home is nestled in the White River National Forest with a natural Victorian setting outside and tongue and groove stained birchwood with vaulted, wood beam, family room ceiling inside to provide a comfortable, warm ambiance.

We are just a few minutes from the "Touristy" action in the heart of town (skiing, restaurants, shops, nite life) but a quick peaceful escape back to Forest Haus when its time to enjoy peace and privacy with family and friends.

Take our tour on this site and see why our mountain retreat can help make your visit a very special & meaningful vacation. We have tried to capture the essence of Forest Haus in our description, but there are intangibles that can only be described by the vacation experience and feeling that Forest Haus will leave etched upon your heart and soul.

Enjoy A True Mountain Vacation Experience in Comfort! 'Forest Haus' offers all the conveniences of home, including a full kitchen, utensils, a 47 inch big screen 3D TV, Blue Ray DVD /3D, (bring your 3D glasses!) Sony Play Station 3, Stereo Tuner/CD player, iPod hookup, Wireless Internet, outdoor speakers, washer, dryer, coffee maker, and microwave to name but a few. The dining room is large with plenty of room for large families.

Enjoy the views out our door, and the comfort of our hot tub on the deck, sheltered by an open-air roof. The stars and Milky Way are vivid and spectacular in the evening sky from our home. You will also enjoy wildlife vistors in our very personal setting.

In the summer, hiking and biking trails are right out our front door. Or relax on the back yard deck to a glass of wine, dine outside on our outdoor dining set beneath the pines, and listen to nature at play.

In the winter, use the cross country ski trail out our front door for some gorgeous views up and down the valley or let the kids sled down our hill (we have scooter sleds in our garage). The ski area is just a short five minute drive down the hill from our home and so are the town activities.

A Vacation on YOUR TERMS... There are a lot of vacation choices available to you. There are not many that offer the kind of vacation experience that our Forest Haus offers.

Vacations are precious and good ones are priceless. You are going to spend a good deal of hard earned money to have a good vacation with family and friends. For me, there is nothing worse than saving your way to a bad vacation. We have tried to make Forest Haus a great value for our guests!

Our home is not cheap...but it is not expensive either. We are somewhere in the middle of the pack, but offer the best vacation value. What Forest Haus offers is the optimal blend of true privacy and tranquility along with good proximity to the town below. Have fun downtown when you want to, but when your are done with the crowds, take the short five minute ride back to the house and not worry about 'noisey' and /or 'nosey' neighbors.

You don't have to share our hot tub with anyone accept those that have joined you on your vacation. You don't have to sit in a hot tub and shake hands with 'bubba and the boys' sitting in another tub on the deck right next to yours! Does this sound a bit 'tongue in cheek'? Yes, ...probably...but it is a lot closer to the truth than you might think!! Not many homes in the resort offer the kind of privacy that Forest Haus does. Many are built so close together, you can reach out and touch your neighbor. I live in a house packed neighborhood day to day in Denver. When I go to Breckenridge, I want to escape to the mountainsnot another jam packed housing community.

Check Out Our Story...: Experience nature close up. The starscape at 10,500 feet is incredible and like no view you have ever seen! Sitting in the hot tub and looking up at the stars and the vivid Milky Way is breathtaking!! Our home provides your visit with real privacy; quiet setting in the forest; close proximity to the action; a vacation on 'your terms'...It is all covered in our story about Forest Haus. Give us a call. We would love to meet you. If we can't answer your call, lleave us your telephone number and we will call an introduce ourselves to you. We are friendly and want to share our treasure with great, respectful, fun loving people like you.

Our Goal: To provide you with a vacation experience unmatched in the Colorado High Country.

“Best Christmas EVER!”

Reviewed 28 Dec 2016

This is by far the best winter vacations we have ever had! My family and I arrived at Forest Haus on December 20 and we were just amazed with the house, the view, everything! It was something totally different for us since where we live it's always really hot! We were so excited to see and experience new things, the house was just beautiful, very homey, very rustic which we loved! It had enough space for everyone, the back view was stunning! It really was a true cabin in the woods♥ at night, everything was very peaceful and relaxing, we also loved the wifi service, tv, and the fact the owners had a couple of puzzles we could use for days where we just wanted to stay in. Since we are not used to the extreme cold weather, the extra blankets, humidifiers and heaters where a blessing! All in all, we loved the place, the view, the experience, everything! and we look forward to renting your home again very soon!
