Make no mistake, most visitors to the powdered paradise of Breckenridge, Colorado, arrive intending to negotiate the regal Rocky Mountains on skis or boards. The bevy of vacation rentals reflects this clamor, some with shuttles to the slopes, others with direct ski-lift access from your doorstep. But from hiking to fishing in the lakes, the Rockies hold plenty of appeal for those headed off-piste, too. We’ve put together our pick of the top vacation rentals in Breckenridge, Colorado, bookable on Culture Trip.

1. Pine Forest Lodge, for rustic luxury

A lumberjack’s dream home, this wood-lined five-bedroom cabin is splendidly built from robust pine logs and is a 10-minute drive from McCullough Gulch Trailhead. You’ll have the whole lodge to yourself and up to 11 besties, sharing the roomy hot tub on the deck, the polished mahogany pool table and a snug cinema room with surround sound. High ceilings and chandeliers made from branches add to the country-palatial vibe. There’s also an open-plan kitchen-diner with a 10-seater table, perfect for rowdy get-togethers long into the night.

2. Emmett’s Overlook, for big sky views

With a vaulted ceiling with exposed wood beams, a stone fireplace and wall-mounted shotguns and buffalo busts, this characterful lodge takes plenty of inspiration from the long-held regional traditions and surroundings. The modern marble kitchen countertops and wine cooler hurtle guests towards the contemporary, but as the name suggests, there’s one big snow-tipped reason to come here: the Rockies, which are visible from nearly every window in this four-bedroom lodge. And remember, if you run out of beer, you’re just an eight-minute drive from Main Street.

3. Los Pinos, for cozy condos with mountain views

You’ll get the best view of the Rocky Mountains from the bubbling comfort of the outdoor hot tub in the signature condo. However, the two-bedroom premier condo also has epic mountain views. Interiors are snug with rich browns, comfy leather sofas and stone fireplaces. Popular Breckenridge spots, including Maggie Pond and the Riverwalk Center, are a leafy 12-minute stroll away, while Main Street, packed with alehouses and restaurants, is just a couple minutes farther along the road.

4. Sundowner II 203, for culture and condo comfort

This sophisticated open-plan two-bedroom condo in the Breckenridge historic district, minutes on foot from the Riverwalk Center and Edwin Carter Discovery Center, sleeps up to six if you deploy the sofa bed. Contactless check-in makes for an easy arrival, and the free ski shuttle is a great perk if you’re in the neighborhood to hit the nearby slopes. The outdoor pool offers a relaxing post-ski dip, while the wooden rocking chair in the living room is perfect for a doze by the fire. Throughout, rustic wood and urban leather combine to great effect.

5. Aspen Meadow Lodge, for pine-fringed views

The view from the covered decking is an Instagram post waiting to happen, with towering pine trees gently waving to the snow-tipped Rockies. You’ll be able to take it all in, sitting on rustic wooden sofas, with a firepit keeping you toasty when the temperature dips. At dinner time, there are two outdoor options – a six-person glass dining table under a timber roof or more casual Adirondack-style seating in the garden – as well as an indoor dining room with an eye-catching antler chandelier. Don’t miss a trip to the scenic McCullough Gulch Trailhead, a 14-minute drive away.

6. Sundara Place, for country chic

East of downtown Breckenridge, this four-bedroom townhouse makes the most of the elevation. The high walls in the living room contain no less than eight windows, allowing you to feast your eyes on the view while remaining warm thanks to a roaring fire and patchwork rugs and furnishings. Don’t forget to soak in the hot tub, flanked by lofty pines. You’re within easy reach of the 10mi (16km) Bald Mountain Trail, populated by beautiful wildflowers, along with hikers, mountain bikers and dog walkers.

7. Saddlewood 46, for art-filled apartment living

The ski-in, ski-out slopeside access makes this stone-clad property a skier’s haven, with the one-bedroom condo only a block away from the Snowflake Lift. After you’ve skied your way back down, the more contemplative guests here will enjoy the surrealist art on the walls, along with a well-stocked library for a mellow evening sprawled on the plush leather sofas with a glass of Colorado-grown red. If your idea of après-ski is a little different, ditch the garden hot tub in favor of a three-minute taxi ride or a 20-minute walk to the tipples and tastes on Main Street.

8. 114 Mark Court, for hot-tub heaven

There’s space for 10 to sleep at this smart, light-filled property south of central Breckenridge. Close to Red Mountain and Hoosier Ridge, this stylish house is ideal for those who’d prefer to explore the Rockies on foot rather than skis. The Quandary Peak and McCullough Gulch trails are on the doorstep, offering more than 12mi (19km) of walking, with waterfalls and lakes en route. Built from rich Colorado pine and with furnishings crafted from homegrown logs, the cabin also showcases work from local artists and has an inviting outside deck for soaking in the hot tub and the view.
