Here are some of the early reviews we have received from our guests shortly after opening for business in November 2013.   Check out our VRBO or AirBnB pages to see the most recent reviews.

Sara & Zach, Andrea & Tim,  Just a note to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your delightful cottage! Eight of us (2 families each with 2 adult children) stayed a full week in early January, primarily to ski.  Your layout is simply superb – even with eight adults we never felt cramped.  The large dining table was perfect to sit around and enjoy hot breakfasts in the morning and ideal for games after dinner in the evening (Settlers of Cataan and Munchkins).  Similarly every room in the cottage is that rare combination of usefulness, warmth & comfort.  We felt “at home.”  The surroundings and the views, were, breathtaking as many other guests have noted.  We hope to be back regularly!  Thank you!

Given its location, well planned accommodations, and friendly owners, Silver Pines cottage is an ideal mountain rental property. Our family visited Silver Pines Cottage for a weekend ski trip in January where we enjoyed some time at Breckenridge Ski Area, only about five minutes away. There are plenty of dining and grocery establishments nearby and Sara was very helpful in suggesting a few of her favorites. They seem to have thought of everything in that they have reusable shopping bags with a club membership card for the local grocery store available for their guests’ personal and financial convenience as well as a smart TV with access to online streaming through Netflix and an oversized mudroom for ski and adventure gear storage. Despite being very updated, the cottage embodies a rustic mountain feel both inside and out with rustic wood decor and panoramic mountain views of the scenic Ten Mile Range. There is plenty of room for a large family or group of friends and we couldn’t get over how “at home” we felt here. We certainly didn’t want to leave when the time came. Sara was very accommodating and flexible with scheduling which was of great convenience to us considering some last minute schedule changes. If you’re looking for a relaxing trip to the mountains, Silver Pines Cottage should be at the top of your rental property list. Sara, thank you to you and your family for your very sincere assistance in sharing your beautiful home where we created wonderful memories to be cherished for a lifetime.

Just a quick note to tell you that your home is AH-MAZING!

We had a blast and I will be a return renter, FOR SURE. I’m working on dates for 2014 as we speak. That home alone turned this city girl into a mountain girl!!!! I’m in LOVE!’
Oh and FYI, next time we will be staying longer than a weekend. I’m totally spoiled!

  • Sarina – Dec 2013

When we arrived, the cabin was immaculate. It seemed like a dream home to us! (3 young couples, all leaving their small children at home to go on a ski trip.) Each floor having its own bedroom and bathroom was an ideal set up as far as privacy goes. The main floor bedroom normally has 2 twin beds- I had emailed Sara prior to our stay and she was more than happy to get a “twin to king” converter and had it ready in our bedroom so we could all enjoy a king or queen sized bed. The upstairs master suite was amazing- steam shower, lovely sitting room, comfortable bed. The hot tub was awesome with views of the mountain. We enjoyed coffee in the morning and wine in the evening while the snowflakes fell all around us. An overall perfect winter-wonderland vacation! Thank you so much for offering your home so others can enjoy it as well!

Sara’s home in Breckenridge was wonderful and quite luxurious! The location was perfect, with all the shops and restaurants just a quick drive away. The house has all the amenities you could ever want in a mountain getaway – heated floors, a hot-tub, a fully stocked kitchen, and amazing views of the Rockies! We had a wonderful time during our stay and will definitely be back!

I agree that sometimes we lost our sense of admiration when we have the blessing
of travel and know new places and experience homes away from home, but this time
the admiration prevailed… Silver Pines was more than we needed, the house was
immaculate, awesome, charming and if thats not enough…the owners were just
spectacular with what they handle the house for us, everything was perfectly
named, indications were right on the money, they were so welcoming that we really(
but i mean it) really feel at home.. Thanks so mucho for your undersatnding of
what a vacation rental house should look like… We are looking forward to come
back now!..

The house is absolutely beautiful. Great views of the mountain from the deck. Hot tub outside, great kitchen, whirlpool bath in master bedroom. I can’t say enough good things about this place. Our trip was that enjoyable, made more so by staying in this beautiful place. It was a great combo, we got back to back pow days in Breck and then just to come back to this place was great. Communication with the owner is a+. They will get back to you in a flash if you have any questions regarding this rental.

Eric and I really enjoyed our stay at the Silver Pines Cottage this weekend.  The cabin was beautiful and felt very homey.  All the upgrades, including the hot tub and appliances were amazing.  The location was great being so close to Breckenridge and Frisco.  We would recommend a stay here to anyone.  We are sure to come back!

  • Eric and Becky – Dec 2013

Sara’s home was beautiful, clean and perfect for our staff retreat! And the hotub was just the cherry on top :) Sara was also beyond communicative and accommodating. I would absolutely recommend her beautiful mountain home!

After searching and searching for a holiday mountain escape that would accommodate our group of four (plus baby), I was ecstatic to discover Silver Pines’ listing on VRBO. From the second I navigated through the pictures I knew the owner’s were providing the next level of service to their guests with their decor and attention to detail. Indeed their pictures lived up to what they offered, and we fell in love and felt immediately at home as we walked through the door. Silver Pines is a complete gem in it was clean, cozy and well cared for… we especially appreciated that they set up holiday decorations throughout the cottage to make it feel even more like home. We plan to always make it a tradition for our growing family to go back every year.

Thank you so much for hosting us this weekend. Your property is amazing and more than we could have imagined!
