Great Location
Could not beat the location and the house was clean and comfy. A few things would make it outstanding- mattresses needed to be replaced, the kitchen is absolutely stocked, but we needed pantry space. Also there was drainage issues out the front door so you walked onto ice and we almost bit the dust more than once. Lastly and honestly not a deal killer, but outdoor furniture on their beautiful deck (heat lamp would be a plus) would have been awesome. I would rent again

Christmas Getaway
Amazing cabin getaway that is spacious with great views and has everything to entertain the whole family. Kids enjoyed building a snowman and sledding in the yard while adults enjoyed the hot tub and playing pool in the basement. The only complaint would be that the house heating system does not equally distribute heat to each floor. Would highly recommend this property to friends and would stay again.

Great location and stay
Great location far enough from the resort and downtown but close enough. House was wonderful and great communication from the property managers.

Great Summer location
My family really enjoyed this home for our visit to Colorado. It was in a great, quiet location with easy access to all the things we wished to do. The location even helped us check off one animal we hoped to see on our trip as our second morning was started with a bull moose right out the window! Hot tub was nice after long days hiking with kids and great kitchen to make our own meals in the time of COVID concerns. Thanks!

Nice change of scenery
good location; close enough to town but far enough away to feel secluded.

A True Cabin Experience
We loved it! Great ambiance, views, comfort. It was a great place to entertain a few clients, business colleagues, and plenty of room for a very large family gathering (9). Everyone had their own bed if they wanted. Lots of activities, even with COVID distancing. The stuffed animal mounts were an interesting conversation piece. We named them Marty the Moose, Bob the Bobcat and Ralphie IV (figuring V and VI are still kicking somewhere). All in all a great two weeks!

Family Vacation
Everything was wonderful. Beautiful home and loved the decor. Note: you must have 4WD in the winter to get in and out of the driveway.

Good location. Clean. Private. Overall good
We enjoyed our stay. If you enjoy minimalism, you will have to spend some time clearing table tops, etc. every square inch of the house is covered with kitschy Knick knacks. The HVAC system was the only negative part of the stay. There are 3 levels, but one thermostat, so at night the master would be at 72, do the loft was 82 and the basement with the kids was 60 degrees. We all ended up crammed on the main floor. We there than that, everything was as expected. Very clean. Property manager was easy to deal with. Kitchen utensils/appliances were all good. Driveway was cleared which was nice given the snow. Hot tub great. Need to fix the melting ice water that drips on you going in or out the front door. We enjoyed the cabin - especially the privacy as there is a lot of space between neighbors. Also - It’s well maintained. Thanks

Perfect home away from home ... all the amenities. Very clean & a great location.
Beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. Enjoyed seeing moose and a red Fox roaming the grounds. The hot tub was key after a day of snowboarding & skiing!

Close to town and great Views!
The management company is super! There was a forest fire and an evacuation notice went out. The management company quickly found us another place to stay- a better place! But this place (Elk Trail House) is great! The views over the valley are awesome and having coffee on the porch was a a highlight. Also, no need to drive to town and hunt for parking. There's a nearby place (satellite parking lot) where you can park and ride the transit in. We loved playing pool and throwing darts. This place was very spacious and in good shape.

I loved it! It was my first time there and the house and the view were perfect!
We had an amazing time in colorado, I loved the house and the city/view. Everything we needed or wanted to do wasnt too far from the house and if it was, the view made it worth the drive. We deff want to come back during the summer. The house was beautiful and cozy and I would deff suggest staying here.

This house was Absolutely beautiful and the management company was great to deal with. No problems at all and they called or emailed everyday to make sure we were doing okay and didnt need anything. Cannot say enough good things about Pinnacle.

Awesome stay in the mountains.
Great place to stay. Rustic cabin with all the amenities one could want after a long day on the mountain: beautifully appointed and comfortable sofas/chairs, full kitchen including microwave and toaster oven as well as toaster, dining area, outdoor hot tub and spectacular view of the sunset over the crest of the mountains from the deck or out the living area windows. Can handle a large crowd with 4 bedrooms and 3 baths with showers. Includes a game room in the lower level with pool table and darts. Great place for friends getting together to ski or families seeking a mountain getaway in summer or winter without the hotel setting. Easy access into the town for dining, shopping, etc.

Fabulous mountain escape home
This gorgeous multi-level log home is perfect for multigenerational family gatherings or couples on a ski vacation. The gathering area in front of the large fireplace and the large dining table sit amid huge windows looking out over tall pine trees. Bedrooms are very comfortable. The atmosphere is perfect for the best vacation memories. The game table and hot tub don't hurt! No problems encountered with the owners.

As if it were your mountain home!
What a lovely vacation retreat. This home is so warm and comfortable it's as if we had furnished it ourselves. The owners trust their guests enough to leave many nice and personal appointments not usually found in most rental properties. The convenience to both ski access points and the town of Breckenridge is exceptional. We loved sitting on the deck and looking out at the mountain vista following our days skiing. Whether it be families or adult couples this is a terrific vacation rental home.

Rustic log home getaway
Beautiful rustic multi-level log home comfortably decorated and furnished. Fully fitted kitchen with all amenities including dishes,glassware, utensils, serving pieces and cookware. Ample room for a large group gathering or intimate enough for a couple. Fantastic setting with tree line views and mountains. Convenient location with close proximity to downtown Breckenridge's restaurants/shopping and ski slopes. Will definitely plan to come back for a summer visit to experience mountain hiking and golf.

Great time in Breckenridge
We had a wonderful time on our vacation in Breckenridge. We were there in the fall and the colors were beautiful. We enjoyed golfing, hiking, biking and fishing along with eating at the many fine restaurants in Breckenridge. The house we stayed in made us feel right at home in the mountains. The views out the windows felt like we were in a tree house. The accomodations were very nice with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. The large family room with the big fireplace was a great area for our family and friends to gather for food, drinks and games. The house was in great condition and nicely decorated to give it a very "Colorado Lodge" feel. We will definitely stay there again and look forward to our next trip to Breckenridge.

Wonderful Log Home
Beautiful and wonderfully furnished authentic log home, complete with a game room with pool table and dart board. Gas fireplace that lights with the flick of a switch (mom missed the smell of a real log fire but dad loved not having to lug logs and clean out ashes). Sleeps 11 comfortably, with a few more who could be squeezed in if you count two futon couches. 3 and 1/2 baths, so no fighting over bathrooms. Owners and management company were very easy to work with and responsive. Recommended for: Age 55+, Families with Teenagers, Families with Young Children

Excellent
Excellent home, EVERYTHING needed was there, a complete setup for a multiple-day stay. The owners have gone above and beyond to make sure their visitors are comfortable. We will be back. Thanks a ton, we enjoyed ourselves in your lovely mountain retreat! Celebrated 30 years of marriage at Elk Trail House!

Comfortable & inviting stay with a great view of the mountains!
Elk Trail House was a great choice for my family & me. We had plenty of room to spread out, yet it was a great setting to enjoy quality time together on vacation. Great location: close to town / all activities in the area. My teen age son had fun playing pool in the basement and we all had fun playing cards at the dining table. We had a small maintenance issue when we first arrived, but they sent someone out right away and resolved it immediately. The house was so welcoming and cozy we felt right at home and didn't really want to leave. We would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful Christmas!
We stayed from December 22 - thru 27th 2012. There were 6 adults and 4 children (ages 10 to 4). The house was wonderful. Our family had a great time. My wife wanted a white Christmas and this was perfect.

Great 3 night stay in the mountains
Two families of 2 adults and 2 teenage kids (total 8), had a great time here. One family was visiting from the UK and loved the log cabin feel, location on the mountainside, and proximity to Breck (5 min drive). It was perfect for a mountain getaway! House was well stocked with everything you could possibly need in the kitchen, plenty of room on main floor for all to socialize, and a good sized deck. We loved the whole experience and would happily come back here again. Adults had the main floor master bedroom (sleeps 2) and loft room (which could sleep 4), which were really nice areas.
