Breckenridge Lodge near Snowflake Lift - Great Stay

Very nice rooms and facilities, and fantastic location next to Snowflake ski lift. The building has heated indoor parking garage but is also near the free shuttle bus stop with buses running ever 20 minutes. Or if you prefer a 10-15 minute walk to the center of town, with the uphill return walk not too bad. Our unit was clean, well supplied & well maintained. The building has decent exercise room and indoor/outdoor hot tubs. The bathroom layout was a little different with the toilet & one sink on one side of the bedroom, and the shower & larger vanity on the other, but it worked well for sharing. The small galley kitchen had everything you'll need but is also the hallway between the living room and the bedroom, so it did get a little tight at times with myself and two teens. Bring your own condiments, which I kind of prefer.
There were a few of negatives to note. If you arrive after hours you'll have to turn around and drive back into town to their office on Main St. to get your keys from a combo lockbox, and then go back again sometime the next day to sign in. A bit of hassle but not totally unreasonable I guess. The fold out couch is the typical uncomfortable kind where you're better off just using the mattress on the floor. We also had an incident at the hot tub. The stairs going up to the hot tub made of decking material gave way under my 205lbs as I was getting out & I took a nasty spill down the stairs. The deck screws had apparently rusted through, but I did notice they were working on it the next morning (no I didn't sue).
That all said we go to Breckenridge every year and prefer condos, and all thought this to be the best place we found for the money so far.

Manager Response to Butch & Family

Dear Butch and Emily -

Thank you for your review! We always like to hear from our guests and this is great information for us to make sure that our units are getting the attention needed and guest’s are experiencing exceptional customer service.

I will follow up with the booking company as you should have received check-in information to come directly to the office on Main Street for keys, any time of day. I apologize about that inconvenience, as we definitely do not want guests to start out their stay with any mis-information.

Thank you for noting both the sofa bed and the stairs to the hot tub! I will share this with the owner about the uncomfortable sleeper sofa bed and with our Operations Department to ensure that the stairs to the hot tub are completely fixed.

Your review of your stay in Riverbend #103 is greatly appreciated and please let me know if there is anything I can assist with for your next trip to Breckenridge!
