Fondly referred to as Breck, Breckenridge, Colorado, is known as a skier’s paradise. Situated at the foot of the Rocky Mountains on the Tenmile Range, it is home to one of the largest, most popular ski resorts in North America: Breckenridge Ski Resort. Outside of ski season, though, hiking, biking, and rafting make it quite the summer playground. In the fall, golden-hued aspens shimmy in the wind.
No matter what time of year you decide to visit, you’ll need a place to stay. Breckenridge vacation home rentals offer luxury mountain living, large stone fireplaces, hot tubs, and alpine views. Several of our selections below are in Shock Hill, which is conveniently located between Main Street Breckenridge and the base of the ski area (Peaks 7 and 8) and offers easy gondola access. It’s easy to get to the gondolas in neighborhoods like Slopeside and Peak 7, too. We also included a few Vrbos by the Blue River, one of which is in the middle of the action of the historic district.
