Living in Australia and having never visited Colorado I did months of research into the local area, hotels and rental properties. We were going to spend 7 days and 7 nights including Christmas day at the property and we were a group of 8 so we wanted somewhere we could all be together but not on top of one another. We needed space, quality space.
Travelling with 3 children and my 80 year old mother we needed accomodation that we would enjoy spending time and relaxing in. With in the first minute of arriving at Goldenview and without seeing the entire house I knew I had chosen well and that we were going to have an amazing time.
Having built several million dollar plus homes in Australia I was impressed with Goldenviews build, features and fittings. A lot of thought has gone into this home and no expense has been spared, it's a brilliant home.
Having the two TV lounges on seperate floors was a big help as was the children having their own room complete with TV, video games and movies. We never heard from them and they loved every minute they were in the house.
Even though the house is spread over 3 levels its cozy and each room has something different to offer. Having the two laundry rooms on the two sleeping floors was very helpful.
The location of the house was great and it takes less than 5 minutes to drive down into the town of Breck. The free bus shuttle was literally 50m from our drive way if you didn't want to drive. The views were amazing from most rooms in the house and the kids spent hours playing outside in the snow while the adults lazed around the house.
We always enjoyed returning to the house after being out, its a great property and you couldn't go wrong by staying here. The kids room can comfortably sleep 4 kids in the super cool bunk beds, we were on the same level as our kids in the master, so two adults would accomodate this room. Down stairs on the bottom floor you have three bedrooms, one has an ensuite bathroom which would accomodate two adults and the other two bedrooms share a bathroom. Out of the two remaining bedrooms I would say only one is big enough for two adults and the other would be suitable for a teenager, one adult or a couple of very young children.
In our group we had 5 adults and 3 children aged between 8 and 12 and we didn't use one of the ground floor bedrooms at all and there was still room for another child in the kids room. Comfortably Goldenview would be able to accomodate 6 adults and 6 children.
We looked at other houses while we were in Breck and if we return there again someday I wouldn't hesitate to stay back at the Goldenview Lodge.
