We purposely chose to stay at Mountain Thunder Lodge as a side trip while visiting family in the Denver area. I had never heard of the term "mud season", but now understand it is the time between winter ski season and summer in Breckenridge.
We very much enjoyed the accommodations in the 2-BR, 2-Bath townhome unit we had for our four night stay. The layout of the townhome was very nice and the unit we had provided a very nice view of the pool and hot tub area as well as the mountains. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Facilities were well maintained. Beds were comfortable. Nice to have an inside entry pull-in garage with automatic door as part of the unit. We enjoyed using the heated pool and one of four hot tubs on the property.
The lodge location is very close to old downtown, so walking is very doable. If you want to avoid using your own vehicle and finding parking that is somewhat limited in town, you have use of the resort's free shuttle service. We didn't use the shuttle since tourist activity was a bit slower while we were there.
There is no food or bar service at the resort, other than what is brought in for special events, but in the townhome you have a full kitchen with utensils.
If you are not going to be in Breckenridge during the ski or summer seasons, expect a number of restaurants and shops to be temporarily closed. That being said you can still find enough places to go and enjoy without the crowds.
As far as Mountain Thunder Lodge goes, this is where we would definitely stay were we to vacation again in Breckenridge.
