About Bob Collins

I have loved living in Breckenridge for the past 25 years. Like almost every local, I work at more than one occupation. My absolute love is designing and building custom homes here. I find a hidden gem of a lot with a view- and I mean a VIEW!

I get to dream up the house design to take best advantage of the views, then I get to build it. Done 21 of 'em so far.

This is my best one. Simply magical. I will never sell it. Ever.

But you are welcome to come enjoy the splendor!

Oh, and yes. I ski a little...:)

Why Bob Collins chose Breckenridge

It's a few minutes out of town and that is exactly it! Quiet, peaceful and sunny. I have lived 'in town' for some of my time here and much prefer this neighborhood.

The mountain view is a pristine, undeveloped view- no ski runs or snow cats or artificial lights on the peaks. No snow-gun noise in the fall blasting from the ski area.

The home itself is nicely appointed, high-def tv, direct tv dvr and the NFL Sunday ticket all included.

What makes this house unique

Guests get a really fair rate on this property, as it is a short drive to town. I do offer last minute specials too!

Create your own romantic space with the fully custom lighting inside. Experience the night sky, stars and the moon rise and setting outside that you just can't ever see in a city. The wall of glass in the great room and main level master suites bring the outside in... You see the ponds, sometimes shimmering and sometimes a pure still reflection, the mountains beyond reaching in to the sky and then the clouds, sometimes floating and sometimes roiling, above. This place is magical. You'll see. :)

Reviewer Comments:

We were in Breckenridge for a wedding and stayed at this house with my son and daughter and their kids. We could not have picked a better location or a better house. The view from the downstairs master bedroom is incredible. We had the extra bonus of 2 large moose and a smaller moose playing in the lake behind the house.

Gorgeous property!

  • 5 of 5

This was a breathtaking property, and the timing of our stay aligned perfectly with the fall colors. This property is also perfect for star gazing, and relaxing by the fire place. Highly recommended.

Reviewer Comments:

Outstanding location and views. Beautiful architecture and great floor plan. The only hiccup for us is that the main floor bathroom doors were not quite wide enough for my wife's wheelchair so we bought a smaller travel chair at a local store to overcome that. The family thoroughly enjoyed the house and our stay here. Thanks to Bob for all his help.

Valley of the Blue

  • 4 of 5

My family enjoyed the house near Breckenridge, but we were all very disappointed about not having access to the lower ponds & walking areas. We had to find other areas to explore rather than having the entire property to enjoy. We also were not able to use the hot tub one day because it was serviced, drained, & filled, so it was cold until the next day.

Owner's Response: When Jan booked her reservation 6 months before her arrival, we were still allowing guests to go down to the lower ponds; and by the time she arrived, access restrictions were put in place. As I have mentioned in a few previous review responses and the updated amenities description of my listing, we can no longer allow access beyond the three small ponds on my property. The larger communally owned ponds are off limits. Excessive erosion, trampled fauna, wildlife harassed and my neighbors' quiet enjoyment diminished just one time too many. I will be expanding the yard and adding a trampoline and full play set in the next few weeks. We'll be trimming some of the willows back and opening up the view of the lower ponds from the back patio and upper bedroom deck. I've also granted private access to my guests for a jaw dropping 2 hour hike to the top of the continental divide. The trail head is walking distance from the front door and crosses private property that I own and leads to an old mining road/hiking trail that climbs to the top of the world! This is and remains a magical place. Thanks for reading, Bob

I built this beautiful home four years ago. I've built 19 others in the area and I will never sell this one. Situated next to the water in a super sunny spot with a blow away mountain view.

The sun rise in the morning is from behind the house and lights the mountains from the top down, often with often scattered clouds igniting in color. When snow covered, the peaks shine the brightest of white and the sky, the richest blue. Streaks of snow will last on the highest points through the summer and the view of the rocky cliffs exposed is a natural wonder!

The sunsets are for gathering together. The patio, backyard and pond face west towards the mountain view and the sunset. The sky usually lights up in color just after dropping behind the mountain top. In the twilight the birds all take flight, from sparrows to hawks and eagles.

We have abundant wildlife; a neighborhood fox, moose and elk all frequent the pond.

World class hiking from the front door. Quandary peak is a short walk and the continental divide is a two minute drive.

Quandary Peak and McCullough gulch are must hikes in the summer and fall. There is a lake at 12,000 feet!

Another cool hike from the front door is up to hoosier ridge to the east of the property. It's about a 1 hour fairly steep hike to blow away views of the mountain west, right at treeline.

Breckenridge resort was known for world class skiing and now they have developed the mountain for summer fun integrating zip-lines, first class mountain biking circuits, horseback riding and roller tracks.
