Classic high country privacy at its best. Great place to hold a family affair, with lots of cozy rooms for conversation and regaling of memories. Swan River Lodge is a beautiful property inside and out. Old west motif and log cabin feel make the inside sweet and quaint, while the expanse of land and wildflower outside make for a curious adventure. A place from which to appreciate the high country, to watch the sun set, the snowfall, the seasons change.
An unmatchable statement in mountain home design, every single element of Swan River Lodge exudes attention to detail. Eighty-eight thousand pounds of pine logs from just outside Yel...lowstone National Park, from what the Yellowstone firefighters called "The Glidden Incident," enhance both interior and exterior uniqueness. The rec room has a dance floor made of imported Australian Cyprus. Kitchen cabinets are of birds-eye maple. This 5,400 square foot home, furnished with an eclectic array of unique period pieces, antiques and over-stuffed sofas, makes an exceptionally exquisite mountain home statement.
Couple all the beauty of the home with the magnificent views west to the Ten Mile Range, and east up the radiant Swan River Valley, and 1/2 mile proximity to the nationally recognized Jack Nicklaus designed Breckenridge public golf course, and you can't find a more desirable vacation rental home or location.

Antique furniture, unique period pieces and overstuffed sofas and lounge chairs are perfectly coordinated to offer sheer comfort and beauty. Every piece has been hand selected for its enjoyment.
The kitchen/dining/breakfast nook have vaulted ceilings and twelve-inch ceramic tile floors, and the kitchen cabinetry is of beautiful birds-eye maple. The dining room table is a twelve-foot antique from the Denver Junior Achievement office board room and seats 10, perfect for meetings and family dining. The breakfast nook table seats 6.
This unique lower level of the house has pure enjoyment as its focus. A theater room with big screen, stereo TV and VCR opens out into the main family area which sports an antique pool table, large wet bar with ice-maker and refrigerator, and 180 square foot dance floor of Australian Cyprus wood. There is also a Victorian, seven foot high Tiger Oak mantle with beveled glass mirror above the gas fireplace. Another Victorian mantle has been incorporated into a cozy reading area next to the dance floor.
Take advantage of the large, ten-person hot tub on the south deck amid the pine trees, laundry facilities, oversized one car garage, three separate private decks, and a gas BBQ grill. WIFI available. Drive to slopes.
Staying at Swan River Lodge made our Breckenridge visit extra special. We were there to celebrate our 50th anniversary with our three children, their spouses & six grand children. Swan River was perfect for our group, providing plenty of space for sleeping, playing, relaxing and just hanging out. In fact, it was so nice we spent more time than planned just relaxing and enjoying the accommodations. And the folks at Summit Mountain Rentals were especially nice and helpful. We had a great visit.

The Swan River Lodge was the perfect place for our spring break vacation. The amount of space in this house was ample. We especially enjoyed the kitchen/dinning area where we could all be together for meals. The views from each floor of the house were terrific. We were also thrilled with the fact that each bedroom had its on dedicated bathroom. The lowest level of this home was perfect for our older children. They spent hours playing pool, watching movies in the theater room, and sitting in the hot tub on the outside patio. The only complaint that any of us had with this property was the the mattresses on each of the beds. They were very uncomfortable due to the fact that they were either very old or extremely worn out. Other than that, this was an absolutey perfect place to stay!

This property is awesome. It had everything you could want, was a ten minute drive from the slopes, and could easily fit 20 people. We had 16 people for a bachelor party, and couldn't imagine a better housing arraignment than what we got. If you're trying to go with a good amount of people or even a couple families this is perfect. Great staff as well.

Our stay at the Swan River Lodge was amazing in every sense of the word! Very spacious and cozy, which is exactly what we were looking for to accommodate our large party. This trip will definitely go down in the books as one to remember. Thanks for everything!

I highly recommend this property for a large family gathering. We loved seating all 14 of us at the long table. The views from the kitchen and living room were stunning, and the quiet road made for lovely walks. Hot tub was wonderful. Lots of room for people to spread out, and lovely large areas to come back together. Read more

The propery was a good value. It could use some updates and several advbertised features were not working and look like they had been broken for some time (sauna). Some of the chairs could be replaced/updated, but overall the place maet all needs with plenty of room for our large group. Read more

My wife and I took all of our children and grandchildren to Breckenridge for a week retreat. The Swan River Lodge was great with all sorts of room for the whole clan and yet each family had their own space for privacy. It worked out as well as we could
have asked for.
The only thing that I thought that need to be worked on is the landscaping! Mainly in the front and around the horseshoe pits, weekd and need to be more clean cut. Other than that, the house was just perfece!

Swan River Lodge-a great place for a family reunion of 12-18!

The home was clean and open with plenty of inviting spaces for visiting and playing cards and games, as well as a pool table, hot tub and steam room. We were a party of 18 and everyone had plenty of space. This home is huge. All gave the place and vacation a thumbs up!

The house needs some upkeep but otherwise is very nice. It took a long time to get into town, but I think that had more to do with road construction than anything else. Because we weren't able to stay in our original choice property, we didn't have to pay full price for the house. I think we would have been less satisfied if we had had to pay full price.

Overall the home was great and in good shape. Swan River Lodge was a wonderful place for our family reunion. It provided spacious facilities and entertainment options which included a hot tub, pool table and horse shoe pit. The view is breathtaking especially from the living room windows. We really enjoyed our stay and plan to return soon.
A note the the staff regarding items which need attention: Washing machine leaks and fills only half full. The pool table has several bumps and slopes. The jets on the hot tub are not all functioning to capacity. These are minor issues which did not hinder our enjoyment but thought you might like to review for possible improvements. Read more
Thank you for completing the survey. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at the Swan River Lodge. We have addressed all the issues you'be brought to our attention: The washing machine has been replaced. The hot tub jets are all working but some are weaker than others.
A Great Week In A Most Special Place

Swan River Lodge has everything - charm, character and plenty of room to make everyone comfortable. It's also very well furnished, with ample eating space.

Our stay could not have been more perfect. We brought our four wheel ATV's to ride forestry roads up into the mountains. The location of the Swan River Lodge could not be better. It is only 1.5 miles down Tiger road until you are on unpaved forestry roads which are legal to ride your 4 wheel ATV's on.(A Colorado permit is required on ATV's which cost about $25 per year) The Swan River Lodge is even great on those Colorado afternoons when rain showers come through. We had a great time playing pool, playing board games or just reading a book in front of one of the large windows with awesome views of the mountains. While riding ATV's up in the mountains we were able to see many white mountain goats with their young. We were also able to play and take great photos in the patches of snow that still remain at the end of July and begining of August. The Swan River Lodge is just in the edge of Breckenridge but also on the edge of wide open spaces. We rode trails for three days and saw less than ten vehicles of any kind while up in the mountains. (Very quite and secluded.)
P.S. You should see my photos ... awesome!!! Ken D. from Groves, Texas
I turned in a survey sheet at checkout. We had a very good stay. Basically, the upstairs king bed needs a new mattress and a new shower head in the upstairs bath. The rugs that on top of carpet need pads to keep from bunching as this is a tripping hazard. I hope this helps.

I was disappointed in several things. I left this in the survey box and I hope it was received.
1-the sheets did not fit the beds. three guests woke up witht heir face on the mattresses in the morning.
2- the stea was out of order, in this dry air it would have been nice
3-Pool table has a cracked slate really couldnt use
4- only a few jets work on the hot tub andit was full of mosquitoes the first day we used it.
5- the furniture in the room off the kitchen is garage sale specials and is dirty and worn out.
6- the remote for the "entertainment room " was not working.
I was pleased with management until the day I checked out when im politely expressed some of my concerns. The lady there that morning could really care less about my comments/suggestions, she hardly even listened to me as she walked around the office not even making eye contact.
The house is well located and could be beautiful but the owner needs to put some money back into it. I understand Xeriscaping, but please , look at some of the other homes in the area, at least they have some landscaping design not just weeds growing all over.
Well, you asked for my opinion and there you have it!
