Three of Inspirato’s most stunning mountain homes are nestled in Breckenridge, a laidback Rocky Mountain town renowned for its skiing. Swift Landing, one of the biggest homes in the Inspirato Collection, offers accommodations for up to 21 guests across seven bedrooms, with ski-in, ski-out access on Peak 8. Swift Landing makes it easy to enjoy the alpine surroundings, with an outdoor hot tub, alfresco kitchen, and a covered, heated dining area.
Four-bedroom Cimarron is located close to the gondola, each with a chef’s kitchen, private deck, and hot tub for an aprés-ski soak. And tucked into the prestigious Shock Hill neighborhood, Quandary offers quick access to biking, hiking, and Nordic trails right from its backyard, all a five-minute walk from the gondola.
From the moment gold was discovered in this gem in the Western Slope back in 1859 to its current identity as a mecca for skiing, snowboarding, and extreme sports, Breckenridge is a historic and humble mix of elegant shops and world-class skiing. Breck is hip enough to host the Dew Tour, a competitive event that draws celebrities from all over the globe. Travelers from all walks of life are drawn to almost 3,000 skiable acres. With a nod to its rich history as a mining town during the Gold Rush and an abundance of friendly locals, this unbuttoned retreat is both approachable and unassuming, never sacrificing your vacation must-haves: comfort and style.
