Each of these earthy elements combines to accentuate the mountain essence of the home, creating a serene and restful environment. As you lounge on the plush leather seating, enjoy sweeping vistas of the dramatic scenery outside through massive windows, simultaneously allowing soft natural light to flood the space.

The River House's design features amazing views of the Breckenridge ski mountain from the main floor living room.
The living room extends into the kitchen and dining room, both of which also offer polished wood finishes. A center island doubles as a breakfast bar, perfect for a steaming cup of coffee in the morning. The kitchen offers gourmet appliances, and two dining rooms are available when it’s time to eat. Enjoy casual lunches in the sunny nook that rests just off the living room, or gather around the formal dining table together, offering plenty of seating for everyone. There's also an outdoor deck and dining table for six for alfresco dining. After dinner or after a long day on the slopes, sink into the rejuvenating waters of your very own hot tub and let your body relax as you enjoy incredible views!
Each of the three bedrooms offers a majestic mountain design, inspired by the natural beauty of Breckenridge. Each of the bedrooms is a luxurious suite, featuring king-sized beds and en-suite bathrooms for ultimate privacy.

The River House, Breckenridge
My three Adult sons and I have had a tradition of taking a ski trip each year to enjoy our favorite sport and some time together. In recent years we are focused on Big Sky in Montana and I have stayed in some beautiful homes out there. This year, we saw that the river house in Breckenridge became available and so decided to try it. We were fortunate to time our visit with record snowfall in Breckenridge, so the ski conditions were outstanding. We enjoyed some great food in town and at the recommendation of the owner, tried the Briar Rose. It was excellent. We also dined at Hearthstone which is also excellent. In fact, I would give the nod for atmosphere and polish to Hearthstone. The house was very nice. However, The house was advertised as being able to accommodate eight people. We discovered that the house really does not sleep eight people (four in our case). Although there were only four of us, I assumed we each would have separate beds (Three kings and a fold out couch). The house has three bedrooms and no fold out couch. Fortunately, or unfortunately as the case may be, one of our sons had to cancel at the last minute. So the three of us were accommodated without a problem. However if the fourth son had come, someone would’ve been sleeping on a couch… I don’t think this is right and needs to be corrected in the The Third Home offering. Had I known this from the beginning we would not have selected this home. All in all we had a great time. ”
Absolutely beautiful home. Our stay was perfect. A short walk to the free ski shuttle and the house is so well equipped for an incredible stay. Every room is beautifully decorated and the house is so cosy. A real pleasure to stay here. Thank you.”
A Special Place
This beautiful home was the perfect spot for our ski trip. The location is close enough to town to be convenient but still very private. It is tastefully furnished with some very special pieces. Host Paul and the management company were always available if needed. ”
Comfort and convenience
Our family had a very enjoyable stay at the River House. We liked the location convenience, the ample space for privacy and the high level of comforts. The immediate surroundings were delightfully natural despite the ease with which one can ski. Helpful host with the house beautifully presented for our arrival.”
Awesome experience at the River House!!!
The River House was an outstanding location for a great week of skiing. House is immaculate and you feel extremely spoilt getting to base yourself out of this lovely home. Bus stop to the ski resort is a short walk away and only takes 5-10 minutes to get to town. The skiing is amazing and the owner has great recommendations for local guides. A five star experience all round!!!”
