This was a gem of a choice, which we made based on other reviews, and we were quite satisfied ourselves. The Lodge is well-managed, by Tonti Management, is clean, well-stocked, quiet, and very nicely situated. The balcony of our studio loft (#405) had an absolutely gorgeous view of Peaks 7 and 8, and the girls were thrilled with the "swirly" (spiral) staircase up to the loft. We let our daughter sleep in the queen bed upstairs, while we used the day bed/rollout for convenience. Both were very comfortable. The added convenience of both upstairs and downstairs bathrooms was greatly appreciated.
The location is superb, as a bi-directional shuttle stop is literally across the street, providing FREE transportation to all of Breckenridge AND Summit County. The same lot is the base of the Snowflake lift (winter use) and the trailhead for the Sawmill trail (summer use). Across the street in the other direction, just beyond the property lines, is the 4 O'Clock trail and ski run, so for summer visitors there is a wonderful trail loop leaving from and returning to your front door! And these are mountain bike trails as well.
Minor downsides: The balcony was semi-private, shared with unit 403 (which was vacant though). The loft window would not stay open more than 3 inches, making it necessary to run a cooling fan through the night, which was a bit noisy. Clothes storage and changing room is a little inconvenient in the studio area; shelving in the closet might be helpful. The room did not include a hair dryer, but the front desk was quick to provide 2 for our gals! The location is not a "quick" walk to or from downtown if you are not acclimated to the elevation or used to walking.
Last word: We'd like to try out other Breck accommodations just to become familiar with several, but the Wedgewood Lodge will be hard not to return to.
