About Amy Smith Ward

Why Cobb Vista? What’s “Cobb” mean?

Not what…but who. Russ Smith’s nickname was Cobb growing up, after the baseball player Ty Cobb. Russ Smith was a man with a huge heart, always a grin and a story to tell, and an infectious laugh that made him everyone’s immediate friend. He loved time in a mountain town and in 2000 he and his wife Scottie bought this house on Peak 7 as a retreat and gathering place for their family. After his death in 2002, we affectionately named the place “Cobb Vista” in memory of him and because, as the laughter and love of our family continues in this special place, we can almost hear dad saying, “will you look at that view!”

We’re the Smith’s, son, daughters, and granddaughter of Russ. We invite you to come and share your own laughter, joy, adventures, and love with your friends and family in this retreat and gathering place … just as we often do! Cobb Vista is a place of warmth, welcome, and yes…a killer VIEW from every room! Come stay, relax, and enjoy!

Amy Smith Ward purchased this house in 2000

What makes this house unique

A Large and Well Stocked Breckenridge Ski House

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of a matured (65+) men skiers from East Coast who like to trek out to West to ski each season. This year (2017-2018 season) the snow condition wasn't so good. It was like skiing the East Coast ski resorts (hard pack to icy snow condition). However, this spectacular house made up the difference. We have been doing this for over 10 years (Big Sky, Aspen, Vail, Steamboat Spring, etc.) and we have to say that this house was most well stocked (cooking utensils, pillows, blankets, TV's, sound system, etc.) unit we've ever been to. We will definitely comeback!

Just as advertised

  • 5 of 5

Our large group had an awesome time relaxing at our base camp for our spring break ski trip. Very close and easy access to Breck - plenty of room and areas to hang out in. Nicely equipped and finished out too.

Great mountain house

  • 4 of 5

Perfect house for location. Really feel like your in mountains. Great views from porch. Little hassle having to drive to and from lift but as only 1mile away not to much hassle. Very well stocked and owner/manager very attentive. Slept 16 comfortably I would stay here again.

Absolutely Loved It!!

  • 5 of 5

I have to say we absolutely LOVED this house!! It was more beautiful than the photos let on!! I would definitely stay here again!! There were 14 of us (all adults) that stayed in the house for 4 nights and it was the perfect amount of space. The Master Suite is ridiculous, and the bed is the most comfortable bed me and my fiance have ever slept on. The kitchen/dining/living room area has an open floor plan, so whether we were cooking, playing Card Against Humanity, or just watching TV, it was awesome having everyone all together. Having the HUGE wrap-around porch right next to the living area was perfect. I can honestly say every amenity in the house was exactly what we were looking for or better! The Owner, Amy, and the Property Manager were super accommodating in every way! We've already talked about going back again next Summer, or maybe even sooner!

Perfect for togetherness and privacy

  • 5 of 5

Cobb Vista was unequivocally the nicest VRBO we have stayed at in the eight years we have been using their service. The home was very well suited for our three families with separate sleeping areas on the three floors. We, the grandparents, used the third floor where due to the small kitchenette we could have morning coffee without disturbing the sleepers in the lower levels. Amy, the owner, worked wonderfully with us through the evacuation of the house the previous week due to Peak 2 fire. Andrea, the manager, gave us a thorough orientation to the property and responded to our questions immediately when we texted her. Loved the kitchen which was so organized, stocked and easy to find items and then return to their proper places. The two dishwashers were a joy. If we return to Breckinridge in the future, this will be our go to home and we will recommend it to our friends. Thank you so much.
