The Lodge at Breckenridge is currently undergoing renovations, but the 47 guestrooms are still available. Enjoy rooms with king and queen beds, flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, coffeemakers, mini-fridges and deluxe bathroom amenities. Some accommodations are pet-friendly, too. Cribs and rollaway beds are available at no charge, upon request. The lodge is close to local activities like skiing, hiking, fishing, biking and shopping, and offers a complimentary shuttle service to and from the lodge and attractions. Complimentary ski/snowboard storage is also available. Parents can enjoy spa services onsite at the Meridian Spa or can soak in an outdoor mountain hot tub — and don’t worry about the kids because babysitting services are available. Families can fuel up for their days with a complimentary breakfast each morning, though there is no onsite dining for lunch or dinner yet. The Traverse Restaurant and Bar is a part of the lodge’s renovations project, and should be complete by December 2014.

We had the beautiful mountain view room with fireplace. Unfortunately the fireplace pilot light was out and it would not work. They tired to fix it but we would have had to wait until the maintenance man came and we did not have the time to wait. The lovely fireplaces in the lobby and sitting area were also not going. It was a shame as it enhances the holiday atmosphere and it was very cold outside. When I asked at the front desk about it, I was just shrugged off. Our room was warm and cozy. Would love to have given this place 5 stars again, but I was put off by not having fireplaces in working order. I would expect them to be checked before every new guest arrives.
We didn't feel Jenny Gleason was very helpful at all when booking our morning wedding and reception in October. We had a small wedding (about 35 guests including ourselves) and had the ceremony on the main deck then had a brunch reception afterwards in the traverse restaurant. Responsiveness and communication was awful the entire time from Jenny from the time we booked until we had our wedding there. We loved the scenery and the brunch turned out awesome and overall happy the day went well but if we could do it all over again we probably wouldn't have picked this venue due to the sales management. The pricing was ok, but probably would've expected more than what we received. We felt rushed after the reception and staff was rude to us while we cleaned up afterwards. The rooms were beautiful but no bridal suite to get ready in. Also my guests got charged 2 times for a room, they had guests names wrong and most of them not even on the list when they booked their rooms. We did not receive a honeymoon suite on our wedding night due to Jenny not blocking it out for us ahead of time when we signed our contract. Jenny was also out of the office 95% of the time and they are all really really hard to get ahold of. There is a lot more I could say but I don't want to waste my breath just glad our day turned out better than we expected minus a few things but I married my best friend in a beautiful day and that's all that mattered.
