Dog-friendly, tranquil retreat nestled in the forest with Monte Cristo Creek views of the back decks!

This peaceful creekside getaway has comfortable mountain furnishings. This cabin was built in 2013 by its owners and children with a deep love of nature.

The Meditation Area:

The Angel guarding the Monte Cristo Creek & property has deep significance to the owners and is in loving memory of their loved one. Many guests enjoy this meditation/reflection area.

The owners are thrilled to welcome you to their home and happy to share Riffel's River Retreat, hoping it brings joy and peace to you and yours. Pay attention to the original artwork and sewing crafts personally created by the owner for you to enjoy - including the fabulous end tables in the main living room.

The artwork, linens, drapes, and woodwork add elegance to this handcrafted Colorado Rockies Home. Spend quiet evenings relaxing by the fire or cozying up with the family for a movie night. Meander outside (with your 4-legged pal, perhaps) and cross your private forest bridge to stroll along Monte Cristo Creek. This secluded home offers 1.5 acres of room to roam. Enjoy the fresh mountain air, roast marshmallows over the fire pit (check for Summit County fire ban/restrictions!), or cook a meal on the gas grill. This beautifully designed mountain retreat is ready-made for your next family vacation or group getaway!

Drinking Water Reeked of Minerals
3/5 stars
This vrbo was a very nice home with a very nice location, which for us was spoiled, because it was on a well-based water system that reeked of strong minerals in spite of an installed water filter system. The water could not be drunk, and no one wanted to shower in it. It was a significant disappointment for our family. This stay was meant to celebrate the first pregnancy of our oldest daughter. We called the vrbo's 800 number on the first evening, got a recording, left a message, and never got a call back during the entire 2-1/2 day stay.

Great mountain get-a-way
5/5 stars
We really enjoyed our stay at the Riffels' Retreat! We spent the Thanksgiving holiday out in Breck and very much enjoyed our stay. It was spacious and comfy and just a few miles outside of downtown Breckenridge. We will most definitely look at staying again. Thanks!
- Mike
Wonderful House!
5/5 stars
Wonderful property! Very clean and spacious. Everything you need is here and the pictures just don’t do the property justice! Beautiful lot in the trees but an easy drive into Breck each morning. Snowed overnight and the driveway was cleared before we were up!

Spectacular Riverfront Home in Breckenridge
5/5 stars
This home was absolutely fabulous! The pictures do not do it justice. It was so spacious and plenty of room for our large family. Having two living areas, both with fireplaces, was an added bonus. The home is very well maintained and clean. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you could possibly need. It is easy to get to both Breckenridge & Keystone ski areas from the home. We would love to come back and stay again, especially in the summer to enjoy all the scenery around the house. Great place!!!

River Cabin
5/5 stars
We had a great time at the cabin by the river! What a unique setting to enjoy the outdoors. Loved the fire pit nestled in the pines next to the flowing river, such a cool experience. Definitely be back!

Breckenridge Retreat
5/5 stars
What a fabulous home! We stayed there with our kids and 2 grandchildren and the layout, space, location and amenities were perfect! The kitchen was complete with anything we'd need, including detergent, spices, cooking oil. There were so many comfortable spaces to work and relax, and the setting was magical! We can't wait to stay there again!

Beautiful relaxing girls trip
5/5 stars
Riffle’s Retreat is a wonderful home located just outside of Breckenridge. My sisters and I stayed for 10 days and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We have rented many houses in the past when traveling and have to say that this was one of our favorites. The house is beautiful and nicely furnished. The kitchen is very well equipped. The beds are extremely comfortable. It is set in a beautiful wooded location/neighborhood, with a babbling brook behind the house. My nieces and nephew visited us for a weekend and there was plenty of room for all of us as well as games and puzzles to keep the kids/adults entertained. We eagerly give this home a five star rating and highly recommend it for others!
- Sharon
Awesome Stay
5/5 stars
My husband and I came to celebrate our 32nd wedding anniversary. We loved the home and location. The area was quiet and private and being on the river was peaceful. We are planning on coming back with family.

Sneaux home away from home
5/5 stars
Not enough good things I could say about this cabin. This place was so comfortable, relaxing and inviting. This was our first “sneaux” vacation so we didn’t know what to expect but this cabin exceeded any expectations we had. Living in South Louisiana, we run our a/c year round. We were concerned there wasn’t a unit, so we just sleep with the windows open. There was plenty of room everywhere for our family of 4. We intend on returning with friends.
