We booked a last minute (2 weeks before) ski vacation to Breckenridge. We booked via the Vail.com resort web site. For 3 of us, we found a 2-bedroom, 2 1/2 bath townhouse condo at the Wedgewood lodge that fit our budget.
The condo was a 2-story townhouse. Downstairs was a 1-car garage, a fully stocked kitched (no food), dining room for 6, living room with TV and gas fireplace and sleeper sofa (didn't use) and a large powder room with a stacked washer and dryer in a closet. Upstairs was a master bedroom with a queen bed and spacious master bathroom. There was an upstairs balcony off of the master bedroom. Also upstairs was a 2nd bedroom with two twins, and a 2nd full bathroom in the hallway.
The complex is located about 1/2 block from the snowflake lift, and about 2 blocks from "downtown" Breckenridge. We walked to both the ski lift in the morning, found the ski-home trail (4 O'Clock run) which put us across the street from the complex, and were able to walk into town each evening for dinner and souvenir shopping.
The only reason for a rental car was to hit the grocery store, and for our one day when we drove to Keystone (15 minutes away) for some different skiing. But we enjoyed skiing at Breckenridge so much better, we didn't mind skiing 5 of our 6 days there!
Our townhouse was separate from the "main" Wedgewood lodge building that housed a large, indoor hot tub. There is also a dry sauna that we didn't use, but looked decent. Separate mens and womens locker rooms are nearby. An outdoor hot tub is located outside the main lodge in a "gazebo" looking extension of the outside deck. But this hot tub is very small, and only holds about 4 or 5 people. We enjoyed the larger, indoor hot tub after a day of skiing.
The few employees of the lodge that we saw were polite and attentive to our needs. We found the price to be reasonable (part of a package deal through the resort). We would go back to the Wedgewood lodge again, if the price and availability were there.
