the house itself worked fine for our needs, but the driveway into the house was very dangerous.there was no maintenance on the drive at all.should have had someone clear the ice. had to call aaa to get pulled out first day. even though there is parking on the street for cars you still have to walk down the driveway to get to door. we had several people fall just getting to the house.

Thank you for taking the time to give feedback on the Rapids Retreat home. This is a beatiful home situated on the banks of the Blue River and I am sorry that you felt the driveway was not properly cared for. We were fortunate to have received a great deal of snow during your stay which certainly could have contributed to icy conditions. Had we known of your issues we would have been happy to dispatch someone to rectify the situation

"Duane D.'s review of Rapids Retreat Four Bedroom Hot Tub On Rive"

The house gets high marks for location and design. It worked well for our extended family and the path to town through the woods was a great plus.
There was one unresolved issue. The connection to the BBQ on the deck leaks gas, which creates an unpleasant gassy smell in the living room when the deck door is open. This might even be a safety issue. The agency sent someone to check it out but he apparently didn't smell anything. Everyone in our group did.
The tile at the back of the tub in the upstairs bathroom needs repair.
On the whole the house was great and we enjoyed our stay there. Read more
Thank you for your feedback. We have replaced the valve for the BBQ. All the bathrooms will be remodelled by November 1st. I hope this solves any tile issues you saw.

some of the furnishings and bedding need replacing
table linen was passed its best and items such as table maps need replacing. However we came to ski and the accommodation provided the perfect setting for a memorable xmas

The property we stayed in was wonderful, cozy and close to town and the resort. The only problem we encountered was parking, but the office worked with us to find something and let us know of other options! Summit Rentals was awesome. I highly recommend them for any group.

The sound of the rapids, the walk through the woods to town, the snow on the peaks, the stars at night, the peace and quiet. A Picnic at Boreas Pass, hiking on the Colorado Trail,
cooking paella in the park by the softball fields, browsing the shops, a memorable week in Breckenridge.
