Editor’s Review of Mountain Thunder Lodge

Nestled in the heart of Breckenridge, close to peaks eight and nine and not far from downtown Break, Mountain Thunder Lodge is a distinctly family-friendly property. The guestrooms are the lodge's best feature for families. Perfect for groups big and small, Mountain Thunder's studio and multi-bedroom suites and town homes comfortably accommodate large families. Living rooms with plush couches and fireplaces make you feel right at home after a day on the slopes.

Mountain Thunder lodge offers ski-in access, but don't expect to sit on your balcony and watch skiers flying down the slopes as you sip hot chocolate. The resort is set away from the base of the mountain, next to a single trail, a green-circle run called "Gondola Ski-Back
... more Parking Access," which connects to "Four O'Clock." If you're on the right side of the resort, you may see a few skiers gliding down this run, but skiers generally use this trail only when they're heading back to their hotel (and you can too, if you're staying here and you're not going to the rental shops at the end of the day).

There's no ski-out access at Mountain Thunder. But you can easily reach the base of the trails by free shuttle. And when you're hankering for a night out on the town or a bite to eat at one of Breckenridge's many restaurants, Main Street is just a short walk away. less

Big family? No sweat. The spacious accommodations at Mountain Thunder Lodge can comfortably house families of nearly every size, from smaller groups in studio suites to up to 14 -- yes, 14! -- guests in four-bedroom units. Town houses are also available, which sleep up to six people in two bedrooms or up to eight people in three bedrooms.

All Mountain Thunder rooms have clean and modern full kitchens with granite counter tops, full-size fridges, stoves, coffee makers and even dishwashers. Cabinets are fully stocked with dishes, glasses and cutlery. Basically, it's just like your kitchen at home, and you can expect to whip up home-cooked meals and entertain with ease.

Other amenities to be found in all rooms include balconies, daily maid service, humidifiers, gas fireplaces, DVD players and sleeper sofas. Cribs are available upon request. There's an abundance of seating areas, with cozy couches and chairs set around a sturdy coffee table in the living room. And since most of the rooms -- especially the larger multi-bedroom suites -- offer a remarkable amount of square footage, your family won't feel cramped spending an evening inside watching movies or playing games. The largest units have more than 2,000 square feet of space.
