Many of the condos we have stayed in at Breck are somewhat dated and dumpy but not Water House. This condo has it all--great location, spacious room, well equipped, great amenities. From this location we could easily walk to all the shops and restaurants on Main, it was a bit of a hike to the Quicksilver lift but doable. Right outside the main entrance to the complex there is a Free Ride bus stop that takes you nearly anywhere you want to go in Breckenridge. There is also a free private shuttle that we took instead. You go to the front desk and they call the shuttle, which almost always gets there within 10 minutes, and you get a private ride to lifts, City market or wherever. When you want to come back, you just call them and tell them your location, and you have a private ride back. Sweet. The entire Main Street complex has several individual buildings, not connected, so you have to use your room key to get inside from the main lobby. At first I thought this would be inconvenient and was confusing, but once you get the lay of the land and don't get lost, it seems to keep the rooms very private and quiet because you don't have people clomping down the halls unless they have rooms on that floor. The rooms are large and everything in them is new and good quality, plenty of cooking utensils and dishes and glasses for everyone. The rooms have flat screen TV's, Dish TV and DVD players. So nice not to have to choose from just 10 or so channels on basic cable, like they have at many condos. The beds were a bit soft with pillow top mattresses, but we slept well on them and had no back pain (at least none associated with the mattress) so I guess they were ok. Our room had a nice view of the complex, which looks like a little mountain village, and of the ski run around the Quicksilver lift with the mountain beyond it. Another nice amenity is free DVD rental box located near the check in desk in the lobby. It has a fairly good choice of DVD's, new ones as well as oldies, and it's free as long as you return the DVD. There is a nice looking fitness room, as well as hot tub, we didn't use either one but it looked good and we might have used it if the weather was too bad for skiing. Another nice amenity was that they have a Christy ski rental place right on the property, downstairs from the lobby. Prices were maybe a bit high but it sure was convenient. Right next to Christy's was the ski valet. They store your skis for you, after you ski each day they use driers to dry and warm your boots, then when you go to retrieve them the next day your boots are warm and dry, and they put your skis and poles outside so you can take off. This was a nice touch for people like us who are getting old and lazy. I wouldn't have paid extra for it, but it sure was nice to have. Overall, this place is certainly not cheap but it cost less than I would have expected for this kind of quality and convenience. We would definitely stay there again and probably will.
