Romantic Victorian in Breckenridge
Clear View House is a charming Victorian residence in the heart of the Breckenridge Historic District. The location is fantastic. The house is just 4 blocks from Main Street which makes for an easy walk to everything, including the local Speakeasy Movie Theater, the Breckenridge Arts Center, Carter Park (known for its gatherings of local people and their dogs), and all the wonderful shops and restaurants on Ridge and Main Streets.
There is free bus service to the ski slopes and to the center of town with the nearest stop just 2 blocks away. This is the "Breckenridge Blue Bus Route" on French Street. The bus runs between Peaks 8 and 9 in both directions with three stops every hour. Thus you have six opportunities every hour from about 7:00 am. The ride to the slopes varies and is about 10 to 15 minutes.
The four bedrooms, three and a half baths provide ample space for 8 to 10 people.
Antique accents and original art enhance the attractive, sun-filled decor. Two gas fireplaces and individual room thermostats ensure your comfort. There are large closets and dressers for stowing your gear.
Breckenridge, the delight-fully quaint 146-year-old Victorian town in the heart of the Colorado Rockies, is home to the top-ranked Breckenridge Ski Resort. The resort recently opened its new Imperial Express Super Chair, a high-speed quad that is the highest chairlift in North America. The chair reaches an elevation of 12,840 feet and transports skiers and riders to the top of Breckenridge's renowned Peak 8. With a vertical rise of 939 feet and a ride time of a little more than two-and-a-half minutes, the new chairlift serves 400 acres of Breckenridge's famed existing in-bounds double-black diamond and extreme terrain previously only accessible by hiking.
Yes, you can count on finding excellent skiing and snow boarding in Breck, as the locals call it. But this winter wonderland is also full of events, entertainment, and activities for every-one. Plan to bring the kids, as there are many on-mountain programs geared toward learning through having fun.
And remember, there's an entire town off the slopes to delight the entire family with entertainment choices such as historic mine tours and the Mountain Top Children's Museum. Breckenridge is an ideal base for cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, dog sledding, ice skating and snow mobeling. The towns two full-service Nordic Centers have more than 50 kilometers of groomed tracks, back-country tours, and snowshoe paths.
Wander downtown and you will discover the largest historic district in the state of Colorado. With more than 200 businesses, historic Main Street offers unique galleries, great souvenir shops, and more. When you are all shopped out, choose from one of many restaurants or coffee houses. Happy hours are plentiful: Après-ski is everywhere on the sunny decks overlooking the Ten Mile Range. After dark, local talent and touring musicians entertain at bars and dance clubs. Local theater also thrives.
Consider planning your vacation around a winter event such as the Ullr Fest in early January after the Christmas and New Years holidays. This is the crazy week when Breckenridge pays homage to the Norse god of snow with activities such as the Ullympics and the legendary Main Street Parade.
There's also the annual Budweiser International Snow Sculpting Championship in January. Fantastic works of art are whittled from 12-foot-tau blocks of snow weighing more than 20 tons. Teams from around the world compete in this internationally known event.
Or come in March during Spring Break for the Best "Spring Skiing" in the Rockies!

We visited Breckenridge in March for some spring skiing. John and Mary were very helpful before and during our trip, answering questions and providing great information. The house was fantastic, the kitchen was new and very well stocked, the bedrooms were all well made up with plenty of towels, pillows, sheets, etc. The hot tub outside on the deck was also a huge plus, it was convenient, clean and easy to use. The house had good TV and wifi signal and was heated through several methods, radiant, fireplaces, and forced air which made it easy to adjust the temperature to the perfect level. Most ski houses we have visited are either drafty or very hot, this one was perfect even in changing spring conditions in the mountains. The downstairs suite was our favorite, the bedroom was big with a gas fireplace, the bathroom had a shower out of a luxury spa with 2 shower heads and steam. I would recommend this house to anyone. The location is great, very near to town and walking distance to many shops and restaurants but located in a quiet neighborhood with great views of the mountain. ”

Our friends stayed at this property and the owners were very gracious and accomodating. Handy to town and the shuttles to the mountain. Thank you.”
