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.

The Lodge at Breckenridge is a perfect getaway destination. It has the most magnificent views and the people working there are very friendly. We'll be back for sure - and we're telling all of our friends.
The views are gorgeous! No doubt The Lodge at Breckenridge has some of the best views in town being situated at the top of a ridge. The building is beautiful and makes the best of its location.
We stayed for a weekend wedding which was absolutely amazing. Storage area was very disorganized and not very secure. Setup out on the patio was prompt, and well organized. The brunch was delicious but sadly the the bar didn't keep up with the dirty glassware for a party of about thirty.
The morning staff and the cleaning staff were fabulous, but the night bartender and the evening desk staff were less friendly and were at times outright rude. The day we left, the morning desk crew anticipated the snowy weather and had window scrapers and umbrellas by the door for guests.
Accommodations were pretty basic for the cost. Rooms were ok, with dated finishes, eye-straining artwork, and some rooms sporting refrigerators out on the floor. Most rooms came with either a balcony or a fireplace. All the rooms were clean. Beds were comfortable in stark contrast to the bathroom linens (hint: a little fabric softener goes a long way) which were about as comfortable as sandpaper.
Breakfast is included and the quality was just OK - I've had better in places that cost 1/4 of what we paid here. There are a lot of options including waffles, cereals, homemade granola, fresh fruit, and the basics eggs, potatoes and meats. The eggs didn't get rotated quickly enough and quickly became dry and over cooked. Sometimes they had both bacon and sausage, sometimes just one or the other. The coffee left much to be desired and I'm not certain if it was just burnt or the result of the foul tasting tap water.
Overall we had a good time made much, much better by the reason for our visit. I had far higher expectations and hope that the lodge can take this honest feedback to heart and find a way to become a standout for future guests.
