Where to stay in Breckenridge for Christmas

Hi there. me and the extended family are looking to rent a house in Breckenridge for Christmas 2012. But having never been there, I have no idea what the best locations are. Our group will range in age from 3 yrs old to 66 yrs old. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Dwhittles,

It might be best to give some particulars of what your expectations are in a house. The biggest one will be

1) Location as it pertains to proximity to the ski slopes. This will also be what typically factors into the $$ of the home. Super close to the slopes in a nice home, $$$$$$, couple of miles out of town in a nice home, not as much.

We are staying at the Grand Timber Lodge (which is ski in-ski out in Breckenridge) for Christmas.

I understand your confusion...I think you need to list what you are looking for, and that will help decide location.

- Will you have a car? I am assuming you will...If you won't then you will want a house that is near the bus system.

- Ski in/Ski out is great depending on the size of the family and what you are looking for

I honestly prefer staying in a huge house right outside of Breck, but that's because I am a Colorado local and like to use the kitchen to cook as much as possible. I recommend a bigger house with more room slightly outside downtown (like 5-10 minutes) and then you just drive into town for dinner/activities.

VRBO has GREAT houses for rent...Go for a house that has a hot tub, fireplaces, and great big living room...A snowy Colorado MUST!

As mentioned above, providing a little more information will help folks give you suggestions. How many bedrooms/bathrooms do you think you would need? Would you prefer to have everyone in one house/condo or would it be acceptable (preferable?) to have a couple of places located close to each other?
