A great pick for a Summit County vacation rental, is peaceful and charming Blue River, Colorado. This location offers a quiet, National Forest-surrounded landscape only a small distance away from it's bustling resort town neighbor Breckenridge to the north. You'd probably guess skiing is a popular pastime around Blue River (and you'd be right), but the summer offers just as many things to do! World class fly fishing can be found right on the actual Blue River - known by the locals as "The Blue." From the Upper Blue north of Breckenridge to the tail water below Lake Dillon, this river is home to an abundance of trout - some up to 24-inches long!

Recent Blue River vacation rental reviews

The house is very nice, recently finished and very nice. It’s about 10 minutes away from the Village. Very quiet and clean.

This VRBO was excellent for 10-12 guests, plenty of space and everything was so new! The vaulted ceilings were surprising as they aren’t depicted in the profile, but this house is stunning. Highly recommend for a large group.

We enjoyed our time in Blue River. The home and location was excellent. Short drive to Breck for events or shopping. The home was well equipped and offered plenty of room for our family We did have an issue with the snow plow service. According to the home information provided by Vacasa, the home includes snow plow service in the event 2-4" of snow. The snow plow service did a no show on our day of checkout which happened to have 6" of snow over night. The property has a steep long s-curve drive way that is about 1/4 acer in length. The downside of Vacasa (over a local property manager) is that they were helpless in getting the local service out to the property after calling multiple times. The property had a single snow shovel. It took over 2 hours for us to use a single shovel to clear a steep 1/4 acer driveway with 6" inches of snow with high existing snow banks. The drive was also iced. I should note we have a high clearance van, with true 4x4 and snow tires. After hours of snow shoveling, we still had to chain up to get down the drive. All due to the local service doing a no show and Vacasa failing to get them to show up after hours of waiting. While we enjoyed the property. Not sure I would Vacasa again for Breck vs a local property company.

But don't feel like you need to rush out and get some fishing gear and waders as soon as you hit town, because nice weather activities in and around Blue River don't start and end with fishing! There's hiking and biking scenic trails past wildflowers, lakes, and waterfalls, swimming and boating on Lake Dillon, whitewater rafting The Blue, or even just relaxing on the deck of your cozy Blue River vacation home. With over 300 days of sun per year, you'll be able to spend a lot of time outdoors here, even if you need to wear a warm hat and scarf along with your sunglasses.

Of course, one of the most popular attractions near Blue River is Breckenridge Ski Resort. Like Vail and Beaver Creek, this resort attracts skiers from all over the world. Breckenridge boasts over 600 acres of daily groomed trails and almost 3000 acres of total skiable terrain. In addition, right in your backyard around Blue River, you'll have access to plenty of trails for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. You can even try ice fishing on Lake Dillon!

Even though you'll have a kitchen in your Blue River vacation home, no one says you have to use it for anything more than making coffee in the morning and heating up leftovers. While most of the dining options are in Breckenridge, it's only about a five mile drive to all of those eateries. And if you're already in the area skiing, you'll have your pick of restaurants to choose from on the way home. A stop at Salt Creek Steakhouse will result in succulent crab cakes and cowboy rib eye steaks, or hit up the Motherloaded Tavern for your fill of comfort food favorites like mac and cheese and fried chicken while you listen to live music. But for those that do like to cook, a stop at the grocery store is all that's needed for a home cooked meal back at your charming Blue River abode.

At less than a two hour drive from Denver, a stay at a Blue River vacation rental makes a ski getaway, annual fishing trip, or just a retreat with friends and family a memorable, fun-filled vacation experience.
