The space
Escape to Breckenridge and cozy up at The Fox A-Frame. Named one of Colorado’s best Airbnb’s in 2020 by Condé Nast Traveler, this private, peaceful, creekside, a-frame cabin is an idyllic retreat for exploring the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Just 5 minutes from downtown Breckenridge, this beautifully styled 2-bed 2-bath gem comfortably sleeps six, has private on-site parking for up to 5 cars, and has all the amenities you’ll need throughout your stay. Access downhill and cross-country skiing, hiking, biking, fishing, events throughout Summit County and so much more! Find us on Instagram @thefoxaframe.

As you enter the newly remodeled home, you will be welcomed by a charming entryway with hardwood floors, seating for shoe removal, coat hooks, and plenty of gear storage. Your eyes will be instantly drawn to the full kitchen with new Samsung appliances and everything needed to craft a delicious meal or the perfect cup of coffee. You’ll also find a front-loading washer and dryer behind the refrigerator. As you’ll find, A-frames require creative space usage!

The breakfast bar and kitchen open up to a living and dining area flooded with natural light and an easy-to-use gas fireplace. The open living and dining area offers a leather sofa, Bluetooth soundbar, and TV equipped with AppleTV to login to your streaming services (no cable). There is plenty of seating, pillows, and blankets to get comfy whether you choose the hanging egg chair or a seat in the reading corner.

Outside of the front door in the main living area is an expansive deck for enjoying the morning sun or playing in the snow. There is a second deck off the primary bedroom which leads to a beautiful creek behind the home. Chairs are available for relaxing on both decks in the summertime.

The top of the spiral staircase in the main living area opens up to a spacious, bohemian bedroom with two queen beds, an ensuite bathroom with a stall shower, and plenty of storage for clothing and luggage. Each queen bed is nestled in its own A-frame nook with a dimmable light fixture and extension cords for charging all your devices. This is our favorite place to rest after a long day of fun in the mountains!

On the main floor, the hallway off the kitchen leads to a full bathroom with a tub/shower, a game room equipped with a workstation, the primary bedroom, and a creekside sunroom. The game room is an ideal place to play one of the games stocked on the shelf (Chess, Monopoly, Clue, Twister, and more), catch up on emails with internet speeds of 150+mbps, or start that blog you’ve been thinking about.

As you pass through the game room space, you'll come to the primary bedroom with a queen bed, dresser and closet. This room has French doors opening out to a private deck. The creekside sunroom is just beyond the primary bedroom and is only accessible by walking through the primary bedroom. It features a twin-size daybed and a gas fireplace to ensure you are toasty! With a private view and a creek running only steps away, you cannot help but be immersed in nature in these two rooms. We have seen lots of wildlife (moose, foxes, bears) come right up to the window for close-up views, so be sure to have your camera ready!

Please inquire directly if you’re planning to use the property for a professional photo or video shoot.

The Neighborhood:
Main Street and the BreckConnect gondola are only a 3-mile drive north where you can find shopping, restaurants, and year-round activities for the entire family. Breckenridge Ski Resort is 5 minutes away however you can also access Keystone, Arapahoe Basin, Copper Mountain, and Vail in less than an hour’s drive.

During the summer months, Boreas Pass, which used to be a rail line leading over the mountains, provides a pleasant and historical drive with top-notch views. Boreas Pass is also a great place for some single-track mountain biking. Make sure you plan a drive during the fall to see the golden Aspen foliage. In the winter, you can cross-country ski on the same trails!

Several hiking trails are only a short distance from the front door! Quandary Peak is just a few minutes South and provides magnificent views for those who are looking to tackle one of Colorado's famous Fourteeners. Be sure to get an early start to avoid thunderstorms and bring plenty of water. After your hike, swing by the Myla Rose Saloon, a lovely local farm-to-table restaurant for discovering great food, a fun atmosphere, and even more views of Quandary Peak.

For evening fun, grab an Uber or Lyft into town for drinks at the Carboy Winery or a romantic dinner at the Hearthstone Restaurant. Breckenridge Main Street is full of nightlife and events. See a show at the Backstage Theatre and the Riverwalk Center, or take a pottery class in the Breckenridge Arts District. Ideas and activities can always be found at
