Luxury Subdivisions with Strong Short Term Rental Income

Luxury Breckenridge and Summit County Homes with Strong Short Term Rental Income

Discover luxury ski home subdivisions in Summit County and Breckenridge, Colorado that provide strong short term rental income for owners.

A luxury Summit County home represents not just a high-end getaway in a world-class ski destination. It also represents an investment opportunity with the cost and maintenance of the real estate offset by vacation rental income and potential tax benefits.

Savvy luxury homebuyers also recognize that their return on investment will be further enhanced by a gain in appreciation, along with the lifestyle and memories they enjoy as their beautiful Breckenridge or Summit County real estate increases in value over time.

Are there Summit County luxury home subdivisions or neighborhoods with particularly strong short term rental income?

There certainly are. Generally speaking, the highest nightly and weekly rental rates will be on those luxury homes that are located closest to the ski lifts, but there are plenty of neighborhoods across Summit County that will afford you a nice income when you aren’t in town to enjoy the home yourself.

Please note that what follows is not an exhaustive list of subdivisions that feature strong short term rentals. I will help you to understand the ins and outs of each luxury neighborhood and will provide rental projections or histories on any homes in which you express a particular interest.

Luxury Homes in Areas with Strong Short Term Rental Income

The following luxury subdivisions feature particularly strong short term rental income.

BRECKENRIDGE LUXURY SKI HOMES

Breckenridge Ski in, Ski Out Homes
You and your short-term guests will enjoy the ultimate in slopeside Breckenridge luxury in these ski in, ski out custom homes.

Timber Trail
The Timber Trail subdivision is reserved exclusively for single family homes and these command some of the best rental income in the county. Each home is a work of art — hulking yet graceful masonry and timber work and the finest in architecture and interior design. In these homes, no detail is forgotten. Many are equipped with wine rooms, game rooms, bunk rooms, elevators, and home theaters. Timber Trail is also part of the Breckenridge Mountain Master Association, which means owners and guests in Timber Trail enjoy the exclusive and lavish amenities of One Ski Hill Place, a RockResort property at the base of Peak 8.

These amenities include an extensive Aquatics Center with panoramic glass walls and ceilings, two swimming pools (a soaking pool for adults and a gradual “beach entry” pool for children), a sauna, an indoor hot tub, an outdoor hot tub with a fire pit and jaw-dropping views of Breckenridge ski resort at Peak 8. One Ski Hill Place also features a two-lane bowling alley designed to mimic a Breckenridge mine shaft, two movie lounges, a game room with pool table, a fitness center that leaves nothing to be desired, and the T-Bar, a popular and bustling après ski spot. Read more about One Ski Hill Place.

Timber Trail residents and guests also receive private, on-call shuttle service to anywhere in Breckenridge. Additionally, the Breckenridge Free Ride bus service stops six blocks away on Ski Hill Road. Timber Trail is a very popular luxury destination for owners and their short-term guests.

These in-town properties are especially great for multi-generational groups – or groups where some people want to ski, while others might want to shop, or take an art class, or visit a museum or take a historical tour.

Four individual subdivisions exist in the area commonly known as Gold Flake, just east of downtown Breckenridge. These beautiful luxury homes face the ski mountain and offer breathtaking year-round views. There are large custom homes here that sleep an army and can be very lucrative rentals, though, because they are not on the ski hill itself, the price per square foot is often lower.
Learn more about Gold Flake and view active listings.

Goldenview
The glorious sunsets and views from your Goldenview windows and decks make this some of the most desirable real estate in all of Breckenridge, but, again, because it isn’t on the ski mountain, you will pay less per square foot. You will still feel connected to the town of Breckenridge and to the ski resort, however, as Breckenridge’s free town shuttle stops here at Goldenview every 30 minutes.

The location of Goldenview is particularly ideal if you love hiking, biking, snowshoeing, and cross country skiing. The trails that run near and through Goldenview are hard to beat for majestic views. Popular Baldy Mountain trailhead is just above the neighborhood. The trails near Goldenview subdivision spider off in many directions. Some trails continue up to Boreas Pass and others lead to the miles upon miles of trails in French Gulch. And these trails are popular year round. Enjoy the views on a hike or mountain bike ride in the summertime and a cross-country/backcountry ski excursion in the wintertime.

As mentioned above, this is by no means an exhaustive list of the investment opportunities in Breckenridge and Summit County. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with your individual needs, and I’ll be happy to make some suggestions for other luxury Breckenridge and Summit County homes with strong rental income.

When shopping for luxury ski home real estate, it’s important to be aware that some Breckenridge and Summit County neighborhoods restrict or disallow short term rental activity, though most do not. If offering your luxury home on the short term rental market is important to you, make sure the Homeowner’s Association in your desired neighborhood allows these short term rentals. (Your luxury Realtor will help you with this.) A subdivision’s HOA documents – more specifically its Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions, also known as the HOA’s Declarations or CC&Rs, will lay out the guidelines for the community, including, any restrictions on short term rentals, if any such restrictions are in place.

The Ranch at Breckenridge Luxury Homes for Sale

the ranch at breckenridge luxury homes for saleThe Ranch at Breckenridge is one of Breck’s best kept secrets. This exclusive and secluded gated community is located less than 4 miles from Breckenridge Main Street, and yet feels a world apart. And the views truly don’t get any better.

Scroll down to see today’s listings in this exclusive luxury neighborhood.

This is mountain living at its finest. The Ranch at Breckenridge features luxurious homes on large homesites, ranging from 5 to 12 acres. With just 12 homesites in all, half of these homesites have been built on, which further contributes to the peaceful solitude this subdivision is known for. (When available, vacant land listings in The Ranch at Breckenridge will appear here.)

[As a side note, the property commonly referenced as the Ranch at Breckenridge PUD Phase 1 consists of 12 homesites in all. There is a second area, commonly referenced as The Ranch at Breckenridge Phase II, consisting of approximately 284 acres allowing 16 units of density. This land has not yet been developed. The entire parcel was listed in June 2016 and withdrawn from the market in July 2017 at a list price of $10,995,000.]

Properties at The Ranch at Breckenridge offer jaw-dropping views of the entire Ten Mile Range including Breckenridge Ski Resort. Soaring panes of glass and high ceilings are common, designed to take advantage of the majestic view corridors.

Homes feature the finest in high-end finishes and incorporate a variety of rich natural elements… from stone masonry to enormous timbers, beams, and logs. Designs here fit within closely defined architectural guidelines and most embrace a classic mountain aesthetic. You’ll see more than one home from illustrious local architect Jon Gunson, for example.

On your way to the neighborhood from Breckenridge Main Street, you’ll pass the exclusive luxury neighborhoods of Juniata and Baldy Ridge Estates. You’ll be near Goldenview Estates, with its gorgeous luxury homes, along with the view lots and properties of Woodmoor at Breckenridge.

The Ranch at Breckenridge is located at the top of Baldy Road. Roads up to this area are well maintained, year round. In the summertime, fields of wildflowers welcome you home. In the winter, you’ll be greeted by views of majestic snow-covered peaks and the rich scent of pine. Once inside the Ranch at Breckenridge gate, you will pass the iconic cabin that has become the signature for this prestigious subdivision.

Per HOA covenants, short term rentals in the Ranch at Breckenridge are restricted to 30 days or more, so seasonal rentals are permitted, but not weekly rentals – and this means you can count on peace and quiet even during the busy seasons in Breckenridge (especially the holidays and the month of March.) See more luxury neighborhoods that restrict short-term rentals. Some of the finest hiking, biking, snowshoeing and cross country skiing in the county are nearby.

Properties in The Ranch at Breckenridge subdivision are situated along two roadways: Little Sallie Barber Trail and Cumberland Drive.

To reach The Ranch at Breckenridge, from Breckenridge Main Street South, take a left at the last stop light in town (Boreas Pass Road). Follow this road approximately two miles to take a left on Baldy Road. In approximately one mile, take a left on North Fuller Placer. The entrance gate to The Ranch at Breckenridge is about one-half mile up this road.

Also note that, because The Ranch at Breckenridge is outside the town limits, these properties are not subject to the typical Breckenridge transfer tax of 1%.

Luxury Subdivisions that Restrict Short Term Rentals

Breckenridge and Summit County Luxury Neighborhoods where Short Term Rentals are Not Allowed

For many luxury buyers, a Summit County home purchase represents an investment opportunity where the cost and maintenance of the real estate is offset by vacation rental income.

But for others, Summit County represents a true respite… a place of peace and seclusion where they can meet other likeminded full-time residents and second homeowners and create lasting friendships with community members and neighbors as they enjoy their mountain home.

For these buyers, the return on investment is derived from any gain in appreciation, the potential tax benefits, and the lifestyle and memories they enjoy as their real estate increases in value over time.

While the majority of Breckenridge and Summit County neighborhoods allow short term rental activity, some neighborhoods restrict it or disallow it entirely – aiming to create the peaceful getaways that some buyers are specifically looking for.

Why would a luxury subdivision restrict short term rentals?
In our luxury home market, the best vacation rental management companies do a very good job of vetting the prospective renters of a home – to protect your investment. However, there exists the potential for noise and additional traffic when large groups gather in one location. And when these groups change from week to week, the impacts can be unpredictable.

How does a luxury subdivision restrict short term rentals?
A subdivision’s HOA documents – more specifically its Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions, also known as the HOA’s Declarations or CC&Rs, will lay out the guidelines for the community, including, any restrictions on short term rentals, if any such restrictions are in place.

In Breckenridge and Summit County, when these restrictions exist, they tend to be highly specific. In Highland Meadows, for example, the HOA declarations specifically state that a lease can be no shorter than 4 months and there can be no more than 2 leases in any given year.

Are these short term rental restrictions enforced?
Like any association rule, enforcement will vary with the HOA – its membership and its leadership.

You may even notice VRBO listings with homes for rent in some of these neighborhoods. But whether or not a rule is enforced, it’s essential that you know the rules that govern a community before you buy, as enforcement can change at any time – and so, for that matter, can the rules if enough community members wish to change them.

In any offer we would write on a luxury home, we would make sure to have a contingency for the review of Association Documents.

With this contingency, you have a predetermined length of time to look over the association documents in their entirety (from declarations to financials and meeting minutes), and you would be granted the ability to terminate the contract and get your earnest money back if you were to find anything objectionable in these association documents, including the restriction or allowance of short term rentals, provided you made such an objection before the predetermined deadline.

To that end, it’s very helpful to read the minutes of the Association meetings, both board meetings and member meetings, so you get a sense for what the hot buttons are in the association. You may find some members wishing the restriction would be taken away – or that an additional restriction be put in place.

This is something we’ll talk more about as we get further into the process – along with other contingencies designed to protect you, as the buyer.

Which subdivisions in Summit County restrict short term rentals?
It can be difficult to keep track of the restrictions over time, as each is governed by individual HOAs and their corresponding documents. Some neighborhoods have a number of homes that are deed restricted against short term rentals and others that are not. Some neighborhoods, such as Angler Mountain Ranch in Silverthorne, restrict such rental activity in some filings but not in others.

Among the Summit County subdivisions where there is at least some degree of restriction:
In Silverthorne, Spyglass at Wildernest and Hideaway Townhouses. In Dillon, Glen Cove Townhomes and Soda Creek Condos, as well as Whispering Pines Ranch and Soda Creek at Lake Dillon PUD, both of which restrict rentals to 30 days or more.  In Frisco, Cobblestone Condos. In Breckenridge, Highland Meadows, Farmers Grove, Powder Downs Townhomes, Juniata Subdivision, Kingdom Park Townhomes, and Kenington Place Townhomes.

In addition, Summit County’s many deed restricted neighborhoods, discussed here, allocate most if not all of their properties for the local workforce, defined as individuals working 30 or more hours per week in Summit County, so short term rentals are disallowed here, as well.

Please note that this is not an exhaustive list of properties that restrict short term rentals. Restrictions on short term rentals is always an important topic to investigate when purchasing resort real estate, and the best Summit County luxury realtors will know the ins and outs of this topic.

This will be one of the first questions I ask you when we begin talking about Summit County real estate: Will you be renting the property when you aren’t here to enjoy it yourself? And if that answer is “no,” would you prefer a neighborhood where no one does?

Luxury Homes in Areas with Restricted Short Term Rentals

Here is more information on homes in luxury subdivisions where short term rentals are restricted in some way by the HOA. Note that some subdivisions define short term rental as those less than 30 days; others as less than 60 days or less than 6 months, or some other definition. Once you identify a neighborhood or home you are interested in, we will make sure to look at the fine print together.

At the end of this section, you’ll see the current listings in each of these subdivisions, gathered all in one place.

Highland Meadows
Highland Meadows is a lovely subdivision located in the heart of Summit County, between Frisco and Breckenridge, and Keystone and Dillon are just a quick drive over scenic Swan Mountain Road. These peaceful, sunny homesites (30 in all) boast tremendous views, some of Mt. Baldy and Mt. Guyot and others of Lake Dillon. According to the covenants in Highland Meadows, any lease must be four months or longer, with no more than 2 leases in a single year.

Juniata
Juniata is home to some of the most beautiful custom homes in Breckenridge, enjoying some of the most impressive views of the Ten Mile Range and Breckenridge Ski Resort. Main Street Breck is just 3.5 miles down the hill by car, and owners enjoy easy access to the town shuttle system as well as a wealth of hiking, biking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing trails. Juniata features 21 properties on more than 80 acres with lots ranging from 1.2 acres to 8.2 acres. Peace and quiet, and no short term rentals per the HOA.
Juniata Homes for Sale
Juniata Vacant Land for Sale

The Ranch at Breckenridge
One of Breck’s best kept secrets, in my opinion. The Ranch at Breckenridge is a prestigious gated community offering larger homesites (many are 5+ acres) close to town – up the hill from Juniata – with fantastic views. Owners here enjoy seclusion, privacy and convenience. The covenants here are less restrictive when it comes to short term rentals. Owners can rent for a length of time equal to or greater than 30 days (so seasonal rentals are allowed, but not weekly rentals.)

Willow Creek Highlands
At the top of the Willowbrook neighborhood in Silverthorne, Willow Creek Highlands is close to everything the north side of the county has to offer, yet it feels remarkably secluded. Many of the homes and homesites here offer tremendous views, and the Eagle’s Nest Wildernest area and trailhead are nearby.

Silver Shekel Single Family Homes

There are three main arteries in Silver Shekel, corresponding to its three filings. Each filing steps up the mountainside, and this unique configuration helps to preserve the view corridors for each home and vacant lot.

First, and just to the east of Highway 9, is Fairview Boulevard. The second “step” or tier features addresses along Shekel Lane. Finally, at the top of the hillside is Silver Circle – a loop of homes that borders The Highlands at Breckenridge.

Summit Stage, the free bus system that connects all of Summit County, stops at the base of the subdivision on Highway 9, at the Fairview Roundabout. This roundabout is located 2 miles north of downtown Breckenridge. The Breckenridge Rec Path is just across Highway 9 and can easily connect you to Breckenridge as well as Frisco (and beyond.)

Just north of the Silver Shekel subdivision is the Breckenridge Golf Club, a Jack-Nicklaus designed 27-hole municipal golf course. Each winter, the Breckenridge Golf Club becomes the Gold Run Nordic Center, featuring 27 km of groomed classic and skate cross-country ski trails, as well as sleigh rides and a Clubhouse restaurant. A bounty of hiking, biking, and natural cross-country ski trails wind through this area, as well. (See Breckenridge Golf Course Area Homes.)

Construction in Silver Shekel began in 1964, and continues today. As is typical with subdivisions of this vintage, like nearby Peak 7 and, in-town, The Weisshorn, Gold Flake, and Warrior’s Mark, properties here range from small cabins in the woods to new contemporary masterpieces – and everything in between. Most properties here, however, are between 3 and 5 bedrooms, and between 3000 and 4500 square feet.

Positioned as it is overlooking the Blue River Valley near Breckenridge, nearly all home sites have great views. These views vary with the property but many look out onto the Ten Mile Range and some can see the Breck Ski Resort. Large decks and outdoor living spaces are common.

HOA fees in Silver Shekel are low: $30 annually at the time of this writing, which pays for summer road maintenance, the annual Silver Shekel picnic, neighborhood clean up day, and the Silver Shekel HOA website at http://Silver-Shekel.net

Note that property in Silver Shekel is not subject to the town’s 1% real estate transfer tax, as in town property and even nearby Highlands at Breckenridge property are. (Learn more about Summit County real estate transfer tax.)

Summit County Mobile Real Estate App

Search and Research Summit County Properties on the Go!

Back in the 1990s, when my husband and I were first looking at Summit County properties, one of our favorite things to do was drive around and look for new “For Sale” signs… signs on homes, townhomes, duplexes, vacant lots — properties in our price range and way beyond.

We always wished we had a way to know the details about a property while we were on the go – especially for those properties that had no flyer – without having to make a phone call or committing to see inside.

Fast forward 20+ years – and now it’s easy!

Summit County mobile real estate appAs you drive around, your navigator or passenger can be using the official Summit County mobile real estate app, SkiMLS. All you need to do is set your search parameters in the app, and, because the app knows your location through your GPS-enabled device, the app will find available properties that meet your search criteria automatically, as you drive around.

The app will show you a map of listings in your price range that are close to you. Move the map and new listings that fit your criteria will automatically appear. Then tap the listing bubble to get all the details, photos, and turn-by-turn directions.

All of Summit and Park MLS properties are featured – so you can easily find the details on Breckenridge, Frisco, Keystone, Copper Mountain, Dillon and Silverthorne properties plus Park County properties, including Fairplay and Alma.

Once you find properties you’d like to tour, just let me know, and I’ll get the keys.

To get started, simply open this link on your mobile device:

Breckenridge mobile real estate appSkiMLS is the official Summit Association of Realtors MLS mobile app, and it’s the only MLS listing search app with 100% of the MLS listings for all of Summit County and Park County, Colorado.

More specifically, this Summit County and Breckenridge mobile real estate app provides:

  • A convenient way to organize your favorite properties.
  • An easy way to communicate with a broker, ask questions, and request more information on properties that interest you.
  • Interactive map searching. With GPS-enabled devices, you can easily find listings located near you – or search by entering a specific location.
  • Map overlays to display Foreclosures, Points of Interest, etc.
  • Wide range of search filters, such as price, square footage, location, and more.
  • Turn-by-turn directions.
  • The ability to save properties for easy review later – plus the ability to share these listings via text, email, Facebook, or Twitter.

Of course, you should never use the app while you are driving the vehicle. 🙂

Hamilton Creek Silverthorne Homes for Sale

Hamilton Creek homes for sale Nestled along the hillside and facing west toward Buffalo Mountain, Thorn Peak and the entire Gore Range sit the luxury enclaves of Hamilton Creek.

This special neighborhood of single family homes is convenient to nearby Silverthorne – yet feels secluded and private. World-class skiing, golfing, fishing, boating, dining, and shopping are just moments away by car, yet the Hamilton Creek neighborhood itself is a world apart.

Scroll down to see today’s Hamilton Creek Homes for Sale.

Each home in Hamilton Creek is positioned with special attention to the magnificent view corridors to the west. The majestic Gore Range is awe-inspiring in every season, as is the Blue River valley that unfolds below. Many homes in Hamilton Creek feature spacious outdoor decks and patios, complete with large hot tubs and outdoor seating areas, to enjoy the unspoiled vistas and breathtaking sunsets.

Lot sizes in Hamilton Creek vary from about 1/10 of an acre to nearly 5 acres with most homes sitting on parcels of approximately one-half acre. Homes range in size from a modest 2-bedrooms to sprawling estates of more than 5000 square feet with 6 bedrooms and 5 baths. The Hamilton Creek Homeowner’s Association owns more than 100 acres of dedicated common open space throughout the subdivision, as well, creating a unique, secluded feel.

As one of Summit County’s prestigious and established neighborhoods, the majority of the 121 lots in Hamilton Creek have been built on. However, there is still opportunity for you to build your dream home here. Check here for today’s vacant land listings in Hamilton Creek.

One property in Hamilton Creek deserves special mention, a luxurious single family home that operates under an established co-ownership agreement, granting owners here one week per month of use for a fraction of the price. The price for a quartershare is less, in fact, than that of the vacant, unimproved lots in the subdivision.

The majority of properties here in Hamilton Creek are offered at 100%  (not shared) ownership, however. Construction in Hamilton Creek began in the 1980s and continues today, so Hamilton Creek homes for sale feature a variety of finishes.
