Travel Blogs from Breckenridge
The day started with a trip to the Butterhorn Bakery for the girls and I. Amazing breakfasts!!! Brian had to get "back to work" after two days off. The kids and I explored a few parks in town. We took a ride to Loveland Pass and ended up walking around the outlets before crashing. A great, restful ...
... foot. Literally, everything is at your fingertips here - you walk 5 minutes and your are downtown. It's so charming and quaint here - little streets where cars are not permitted to drive - only pedestrians, bikers, and skateboarders. Lots of little shops, art galleries, clothing stores (EXPENSIVE!), restaurants and cafes, tons of fountains all over the town - with children running in the water to cool ...

The site probably dictated more time spent but we had a lot of Miles to cover so with that we headed South to Cheyenne where the group split again with Carl Paola Noela and I electing to head West into the Rockies via ...
... of good wine. He even has the listing on an I pad. In fact, they use I pads for controlling the lights, blinds, television, air and everything. I learned how to use it to control our room. I did ask how many I Pads were in the home and Fred didn't know. Right after we arrived, we were treated to a moose visit. While looking at the creek we spotted a young moose eating. We all went out in the backyard for pictures and the moose decided to be ...

So being the responsible mother I am - we beat a hasty retreat into the nearest bar for a hot chocolate with whipped cream. Mick stayed out on his own (even though his fingers were freezing also) and the boys were on another slope. From that day on, we never left the house without hand Warmers ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Mountain Thunder Lodge Breckenridge
Great Place in a Great town.
My wife and I decided to do a Colorado fishing trip/vaction in late Sept. early Oct. 2004. We chose Breckenridge as our destination, and found Mt. Thunder Lodge on the internet. Check in, was simple and the property was fantastic. Underground parking, beautiful accomodations, and very well kept grounds. We were quite fortunate, no one bedroom units were available so they substituted a two BR unit at no extra charge! We got a very good rate, about what you would normally pay for a hotel room, and fantastic accomodations. Very centrally located and walking distance to most everything in Breckenridge. I would recommend this resort very highly.
Great summertime value!
Our family of five enjoyed a two night stay in late June. Reasonable price for wonderful accomodations.
We just got back, stayed for 4 nights in June 2004. The weather was glorious! Recommend main building overlooking Mt. Baldy.
We stayed in a one bedroom condo on the 3rd Floor. This floor has a Laundry so it was super convenient. This unit had all the goodies, high speed Internet connection, in-room safe, fireplace, daily Starbucks coffee (decaf and regular) new appliances like toaster, blender, coffee machine, new range, new microwave, new dishwasher and new fridge + all the pots, wine glasses, coffee cups etc.
Memorable was the walking trails nearby. Location was excellent, close to market, gas station, bike rentals, video store etc. Lodge has wonderful facilities - like gym, heated pool and jacuzzi. Very new, very accommodating staff. Highly recommended!
This place was wonderful
We stayed here for a four day ski vacation in March of 2004. The lodge is almost new, and it reflects it. The accomodations in our one bedroom were very spacious, and it has a nice west/southwest decor. The kitchen unit is fully stocked with anything you could need for any cooking. The management and staff were always friendly, always responsive, and having a twenty four hour desk is a great plus.
The lodge is a short walk to the Main Street restaurants and shops of Breckenridge. There is underground parking, and the shuttle to the mountain base areas run whenever you need one.
I would go back here in a heartbeat!
We stayed at Mountain Thunder Lodge for the last week in February, 2004. Our 2 bedroom unit was very comfortable, well equipped and nicely furnished. The staff at the lodge was extremely friendly and helpful.
Our experience could not have been better!
Thunder Mountain Lodge
We stayed at the Lodge around the first week in Feb/04. The room was beautiful; the view was breath taking, and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Take medication for elevation sickness!!!!
Great place to stay!
I stayed in February 2004. The unit and facilities are in brand new condition. Covered parking, private courtesy shuttle takes you to main street and the slopes. Great staff. I would recommend to anyone. It is well worth the price. Not one complaint for my entire stay.
A great place to visit
We stayed at the Lodge for a long weekend in January 2004. Our 2 bdrm suite was wonderful and had all the comforts of home. Good location and we loved the fireplace! I would highly suggest staying here if you want something other than just your typical hotel room.
Wonderful and New
I stayed at the Mountain Thunder Lodge over the Christmas of 2002. It was brand-spanking new at the time and everything was immaculate. The motif was very nice and it made the winter in Colorado experience complete. Highly recommended!
Great mountain getaway
Stayed at Mountain Thunder Lodge in July 2003. Great experience-brand new building, friendly staff, great location. The rooms are all condominiums, and very nicely furnished. The Lodge is only 1 block from the Main Street, so easily accessible to pretty much everything. We had a beautiful room overlooking the pool and mountains-amazing views!! We will definitely stay here again.
