Located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, The Lodge at Breckenridge is the ultimate mountain escape. The property sits atop a large forested cliff (10,200 feet above sea level) and offers pristine panoramic views of the Rocky Mountains, Boreas Pass, ski slopes, and the Tenmile Range.
The Lodge is quaint, rustic, and authentic Colorado. It’s approximately 2 hours from Denver International Airport where you can rent a car or schedule an airport pick up through various shuttle companies available in Colorado. There’s also an airport in Colorado Springs although the length of the trip to Breckenridge is the same (2 hours).
One of the great aspects about the Lodge is that there are only 45 rooms surrounded by charming Colorado forest and spectacular unobstructed views.
It’s quiet during the summer and the weather is comfortable.
Only a light sweater is needed during the afternoon, however, the night temperatures do drop off. The staff is friendly and very attentive since it is a smaller lodge.
You can check in at all hours of the night if you happen to arrive late; the front desk is always staffed. If you happen to arrive at night, prepare for that wow factor in the morning because the views are incredible.
This luxury resort is a great venue for a leisure getaway during the summer, a rustic wedding, a company retreat, and of course, a winter trip where you can partake in many activities. There are plenty of outdoor activities available year round like bike rentals, trolley rides, and even roller blading.
There’s also a shuttle which will bus you to the slopes during the winter months and to charming and historic downtown Breckenridge. Many festivals and events do take place during the summer, including weddings, so be sure to ask for the town’s agenda while making your reservations.
The Lodge At Breckenridge
If you’re driving in, the roads are well kept, even during the winter. The town of Breckenridge, Colorado clears the roads of snow so there is no problem whatsoever driving to the resort during the winter months. If you happen to arrive at night, the roads are dark and winding but extremely safe if you’re following all precautions.

The Mountain View Suite
The Mountain View Suite is absolutely incredible. The views are incomparable and the rustic setting complete with a fireplace and miniature kitchen makes this Lodge one of the best in the area for winter getaways and skiing.
There’s no air conditioning in the Lodge (it’s not really necessary) since temperatures really never get above the 60s during the summer months.
There are heaters and a fireplace available for the cold winters. A fan and windows that open are available if you want to keep your room temperature cooler during the summer, although leaving your windows open at night will significantly cool down your room.
Available in your room are all your standard amenities:
- Iron with an ironing board
- Blow dryer
- Cable television
- Small fridge and microwave
- Coffee and tea
- Bath soaps
- Water bottles
Breakfast and dinner are available on the property. Breakfast is buffet style and complimentary.
It includes your standard eggs, bacon, coffee, waffles, fruit, cereal, sausage, and juice bar, and more — and it tastes a lot better than your average hotel breakfast buffets. Don’t skip breakfast while visiting this lodge.
For lunch, take the shuttle, Uber, or your rental to downtown Breckenridge where there are plenty of restaurants, site seeing, free museums, coffee shops, and craft beer. The atmosphere is very relaxed so comfortable cloths and tennis shoes are your best bet.
A full-service bar opens for dinner and happy hour is from 5-9 pm daily. Craft drinks, plenty of wine options, delicious appetizers, scrumptious entrees, decadent desserts, and spectacular views are all available at Traverse Restaurant & Bar.
Weddings usually take place on this deck. When there isn’t a wedding going on, it’s a nice post dinner lounge area where you can feel the cool breeze of the Rockies while enjoying a hot beverage, or something with a little more kick in it from the bar.
The Blood Mary’s are excellent as well as the Blackberry old fashioned.

Shuttle available to take you into town
A shuttle is available throughout the day and will take you to the ski slopes during the winter months as well as downtown Breckenridge.
Check out Main Street Trolley that just reopened, too. The free downtown trolley runs every 10 minutes from the Breckenridge Transit Station, down Main Street to the Ice Rink, and even stops at City Market.
If you’re renting a car, there are plenty of places to park downtown although you will need to pay $2 for two hours.
Overall, the Lodge at Breckenridge is a great resort if you’re searching for an authentic Colorado experience.
