About the property

4 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom home

Our mountain home is conveniently located on Route 9 less than 4 miles (about 5 min) south of Breckenridge. A paved driveway, which is plowed for your convenience in the winter, leads to a heated 2-car garage. Located on two acres of beautiful aspens and evergreens, it backs up to the Arapaho National Forest.

Inside is a modern 3,000 square foot newly furnished home with four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms to comfortably sleep ten. Additionally there is a small TV/reading room with a futon to accommodate another one or two.

The loft has a large high-top table with 6 chairs for games. A full size air hockey table and a foosball table are also located in the loft.

The main living area has a large gas fireplace with a TV above and a wall of windows. The dining table has seating for 10.

The modern kitchen has granite counters with seating for 2 at the bar, a gas stove top and stainless steel appliances. A plentiful supply of pots, pans, dishes, cups and glasses provides the option to cook or order in.

The master bedroom has a king size bed. The master bath has jetted tub and a steam shower. There is also direct access to the deck and the new 8-person Arctic Spa hot tub. Other guests can access the deck and hot tub from the kitchen.

Upstairs there is an additional king size bedroom with a bath shared with the “bunk room”. The bunkroom has a queen size bed and bunked twin beds.

The fourth bedroom has a queen size bed and en suite bath with large shower.

All bedrooms have flat screened LED TV’s.

The bedroom setup is best suited to a maximum of 8 adults and 4 children.

Finally you will find the radiant in-floor heat will not only keep your feet warm but will maintain a very consistent indoor temperature.

About John Gale

We are retired military (Army/West Point) living in Colorado Springs. We moved to Colorado in 2010 to be close to our 6 grandchildren. We grew up in the Pennsylvania Poconos and have always loved the mountains.

John Gale purchased this house in 2014

Why John Gale chose Sunny Slope

We had been coming to Breckenridge as a family to ski for many years and decided it was time to buy. We chose this location for the proximity to downtown Breckenridge (5-minute drive), yet far enough from town to enjoy the peace and quiet of this beautiful setting. We are on Highway 9 (Main road through town) but far enough back to avoid road noise . We are minutes from the ski lifts, great hiking, snow shoeing, cross country skiing and biking. Breckenridge is one of the most scenic mountain areas in the US with unlimited outdoor activities: snow skiing, snowboarding, tubing, hiking, mountain biking, fishing, whitewater rafting, snowmobiling, 4-wheeling, ice skating and more.

What makes this house unique

In addition to the "great room" with gas fireplace and large screen TV, there is a loft with air hockey, foosball and a large game table. The "TV room" provide another space for privacy. There is a TV in every bedroom and of course free high-speed internet and WiFi. Outside there is a large deck with hot tub, gas fire pit, and log chairs. Finally, you enjoy the ability to pull into the heated garage to unload on arrival or after a long day of activity.

Wonderful place to stay. Close to Breck mountain resort, lots of room, well-equipped, great hot tub, awesome game room, and a very attentive host too. What more could you ask for? Highly recommend and would book again in a heartbeat!

Beautiful home and lovely surroundings!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10, spent Christmas at Bear Crossing. The home was perfect, super clean, plenty of room, towels and a full kitchen! Upon arrival, there was a beautifully decorated Christmas tree in the great room, a bottle of wine and a basket of chocolates on the table. John, the owner, was very accommodating! We would definitely recommend Bear Crossing to friends and family!!

A Spectacular Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

The home was spacious, beautifully decorated and equipped with all the amenities you need for a home away from home. The children loved the "play room" equipped with an air hockey game. The adults enjoyed the large table where all nine of us could sit together for dinner and board games. We all loved the master shower, the huge fireplace and the wild flowers in the yard. The hammocks were used every day. We used the fire pit once or twice, but only because it rained every day. We all liked the fact that the house was not close to any other home, and therefore we got to see hummingbirds every day, a deer one morning, chipmunks, and best of all two moose right in the yard.

All of us would like to visit again, or better yet, live there permanently!

WOW!!!!!!!5 stars do not do this property justice. Clean, nicely furnished, excellent location. Will definitely return for a relaxing vacation. Oh, failed to mention our visitors, one day we were visited by a moose and a couple days later a nice buck dropped by.

The perfect Breck getaway!

  • 5 of 5

First off, this home is exceptional. The design, layout, and finishes are all first class from top to bottom. We live in Colorado and used the home for small family reunion and it worked out perfect. We've stayed in several places in the high country over the years and this tops them all.

The location is great, you're just a few minutes from downtown Breck and the resort, yet a world away from it all. The location is also just around the corner from some of the best hiking trails in Summit County. The home features a great private lot where you can relax and just hang out. The main living area, kitchen, and loft are all connected and provide an exceptional entertaining/gathering space. The bedroom layout offered peace and quiet when needed. You'll enjoy all the little details like the cable tv in the bedrooms, fast wifi, gas grill, fire pit, hot tub, game tables, radiant floor heat, lighting, and a well appointed kitchen . We're already planning our next Breck escape! Winter here would be equally incredible. Lastly, the owner John was a pleasure to work with. He was responsive, accommodating, and very informative from start to finish.
