Just returned from a trip with family (two teen boys - 14 and 19) and husband. Just stay at Mountain Thunder Lodge - it's perfect ! Location is ideal for a walk into town and also near the Gondola (to the mountain top)... Also - a short walk to the City Supermarket...

Accommodations were a 10+ - have stayed in other Condo's and the surroundings were just beautiful. They also do daily cleaning which is a plus. We rented a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom - plenty of space and 3 TV's (important with teens !). Very quiet as well.

Stayed in the main building - hotel supplied a "shuttle service" to get to local places if needed. Staff was very helpful....

PRO's: Accomodations, location, helpful staff
CON's: Should be free internet at all times (not just one hour)...

Just got back from our family vacation in Breckenridge, consisting of 11 adults and 11 kids (5-18)...Mountain Thunder was a great choice for lodging! We had a few condos in the main building and two townhouses. The location is PERFECT - easy walk to town and to the gondola to go up the mountain. The rooms were great, clean, comfortable and stocked with everything we needed. Pool and hot tubs were a great place to end our action-packed days. Highly recommend Mountain Thunder!

We recently got married in Breckenridge and had all of our guest stay at Mountain Thunder Lodge. We booked over half of their rooms/houses/condos and they were GREAT. They went above and beyond our expectations.

They allowed us to use their common area to have a "welcome BBQ" for all of our guest and they helped set up tables, chairs, etc. They also helped us when the transportation company that we hired didn't meet our expectations for getting our guest to our wedding location (the driver of the bus got lost and our ceremony was delayed). However, MTL stepped up and made sure that our guest got to the ceremony location. All of our guest were extremely happy with their stay.

The staff was outstanding (especially Mary) and we couldn't be more happy. THANK YOU MTL for making our wedding event so great.

We stayed here over fourth of July weekend this past year while visiting my brother who lives in Breck. I don't have much bad to say about the property - we arrived after camping on the Arkansas River for 3 nights and the fact that we had a washer and dryer in the room was wonderful since everything smelled like 'campfire'. The room was clean and well appointed, including a few games (battleship & monopoly) for the kids to play while we were doing laundry and settling in.

The front desk was also great - they helped us to book all of our day activities like horse back riding and visiting the local gold mine. When we did have an issue locating laundry soap - they brought some right to the room for us.

We also had an opportunity to use the pool and playground. Both facilities were good - the pool is a bit small and the towels were small and thin. This was mostly problematic because it was a popular place to be in the afternoons - I think if I wasn't with young kids myself I might have been annoyed with how loud everything was - but given that my kids were in the mix - I thought it was great.

Final point is the location - it was great!!!! The views were nice, but we were easily in walking distance to downtown Breckenridge and walked in for the parade, lunch, dinner, pretty much everything.

This was our second stay at Mountain Thunder Lodge in two years. We returned because of our wonderful first experience and were thrilled that this year's experience was even better. Our three bedroom unit was immaculate, updated, expansive and provided breathtaking views of the mountains. There were large flat screen TV's in each room with digital cable, a fully equipped kitchen and quality bath linens. Plus, this is literally just a couple of blocks walking distance from Main Street and downtown Breckenridge. There's also underground parking, swimming, hot tub and a nicely equipped workout room. All of this, plus reasonable pricing (considering the quality and location) and warm, friendly and enthusiastic front desk staff means we'll certainly be back and recommend this place to all our friends.

Followed Trip Advisor's ratings and booked a last-minute 2 bedroom condo here right after the 4th of July. It was exactly what we were looking for -- spacious accomodations at a great price, in a perfect location, and with staff and service that exceeded our expectations. We were especially happy with the location, which made walking to everywhere in town a breeze. Breckenridge is a great alternative to other shopper-focused resort choices.

We went with Mountain Thunder Lodge after a recommendation from the Breckenridge travel specialist Matt in the Trip Advisor Forums. We needed a 3 bedroom place within walking distance of town that was quiet and that had views. We didn’t quite get everything, but our stay was enjoyable.

RESERVATIONS

We reserved a 3 bedroom townhouse for just over $1000 for 3 nights which came out to around $80/person per night. There was a mix up on the credit card number, but it was resolved quickly. We requested a townhome for which we would not hear traffic noise and would prefer views. We were not granted either of those requests.

ARRIVAL

The property is just off Hwy 9 and guest services is promptly to the right after the entrance. The lobby was attractive and clean. We had a bit of a wait at the front desk while the hotel person complained to other guests about picky New York guests. It is bad practice to complain about customers no matter how accurate the complaints might be. Check-in was straightforward, but there wasn’t a lot of information provided. After given our keys we found our town home which backed to a tall set of condos. The road noise from Ski Hill Rd. was very noticeable.

LOCATION

Other than in summer, the location is very good. It is a 5 minute walk to town which is very convenient. However, we had wanted a nice place to sit outside and enjoy the views, but instead found a couple of chairs on the ground floor (no balcony) with views of the condos next door, and road noise (very uninviting). It looks like some town homes would not have this issue, so guess it’s the luck of the draw. To get to City Market (King Soopers), a large grocery store, turn left down the road and it is nearby on your right. The free Summit Shuttle (where you can go to Frisco, Copper Mountain etc.) is very close as well (to the left). Mountain Thunder Lodge has a shuttle service as well, but with town so close (and we weren’t skiing), we never used it. The fully paved Blue River Bikeway is also nearby. You can bike it, but we decided to run the 9 miles downhill (600 foot elevation drop) to Frisco and then catch the free Summit shuttle back. It was fabulous!

OUR TOWNHOME

Our 3 bedroom place inside was very clean and pleasant. We had vaulted ceilings in the living room and a nice fully equipped wide open kitchen (with granite), and a proper dining table. We really liked the décor. All 3 bedrooms had connecting bathrooms although the bedroom downstairs also served as a general bathroom (2 doors). Despite the floor plan on the web site suggesting otherwise, one of the bedrooms had bunk beds. Fortunately our 71 year old family friend didn’t mind, but a couple would. The full master suite bath was perfect, and everyone found the beds comfortable. As long as you didn’t open the windows, road noise wasn’t a problem. We found a few items that didn’t work, and note that the “2 car garage” can only fit medium size vehicles as the single doors are VERY narrow (there is other outside parking). The televisions had not been updated to flat screens yet, and there is no HD. Cable is provided, and we used WiFi for a few minutes (there was something about free for an hour, but then you pay - but not sure). iPhone AT&T coverage including 3G was very good so we didn’t need WiFi. The pool is small, and the multiple hot tubs were small but were actually hot.

SERVICE

We found the service perfunctory at best. There wasn’t the usual information provided in the townhome about hiking, biking, etc. In talking to the front desk we felt we were just being sold “guided” hikes and other paid activities. A library of books about hiking, biking and the area would have been much more useful. We went into town and bought a book on hikes.

RESTAURANTS

We cooked some of the time, but had some great meals out. We enjoyed the Breckenridge Brew Pub, we sat out on the balcony and enjoyed cold beers while looking at the mountains (the food was acceptable). We loved Le Petit Paris and Giampietro Pizzeria (see my reviews).

Overall, Mountain Thunder Lodge was quite convenient, really nice inside, and pretty good value for a large party. So even though the service wasn’t great, and the road noise was more than we would have liked (only when the windows were open), we would consider staying here again (in a different unit).
