About Bruce and Judy Spinney
Bruce and Judy welcome you to their Breckenridge home. Bruce moved to Colorado from Iowa as a young boy. He grew up in Fort Collins and developed a love of the outdoors as a young lad. Fort Collins had open spaces and easy access to a world of adventure. He ran a small trap line on the Poudre and developed a love of fly fishing as a teenager. Judy grew up on a farm in Rocky Ford, Colorado. She and her sister and two brothers tackled all the tasks associated with a family farm. Bruce and Judy met at CSU (Colorado State University) in Fort Collins. Bruce became a school administrator, and Judy spent most of her career as a school librarian. After retirement, Bruce became a fly fishing guide for Mountain Angler in Breckenridge. They like to play competitive duplicate bridge, travel, bike, read, and Judy often fly fishes with Bruce. They always travel with their cribbage board. Bruce and Judy are parents to two children. Each is married and has two children. They are fortunate that both families live in Colorado.
Why Bruce and Judy Spinney chose Breckenridge
Our home lends itself well for sharing time with friends and family. It has an open floor plan where people can gather together. The views are outstanding. Each bedroom has a private bath. It's amazing to be in the outdoor hot tub when snow is drifting from above. Properties in The Highlands are on acre+ lots. Trees are abundant and the setting is ideal. One has very expansive views and lots of open space.

The VRBO profile info and pictures were impressive for sure, but the experiences exceeded even that high bar. On every aspect of the property, communications, location, gondola access convenience, and the tru intent of Judy and Bruce to arrange things so they were actually sharing their home, not simply renting it - the reality exceeded even the best expectations.
Your home was everything the 8 of us needed. Its location was very close to the grocery store & the quaint little town of Breckenridge. The beautiful views of the mountains, wildlife & flowers were breathtaking We thank you for your hospitality.
Thank you for staying in our Breckenridge home. We loved having your group and definitely wish you would return. It was great to answer your pre-visit questions and give you suggestions and ideas of things to do in the area. There are so many opportunities for exploration in Summit County.
Everything you need and more
Rented this home to go skiing with my 3 adult children. We had a blast, the home is well appointed with more than the basics. I have rented homes all over the USA and some apartments in Europe, some were very luxurious, but this is the most like "home." The Spinney's, Judy and Bruce, were very helpful before we arrived providing information about the home and area. Many things in the home are labeled, so you can get quickly acquainted. We each took turns cooking, and found everything we need to prepare meals. Seasonings and a crockpot made meal prep a breeze. The hot tub is nice, but sometimes too hot, so you needed to open the cover to let it cool a bit. (Much better than too cool)
First time at Breckenridge, nice mountain and we loved the way the Epicpass tracks your runs. Not crazy about the food in most of the mountain restaurants, but that's not unusual. Found the people in the town friendly, even though it was near the end of the season. We parked at the airport free parking as recommend by the Spinney's and took the shuttle. It was convenient, especially avoiding the post skiing day traffic.
The views from the home's large windows that face the resort are stunning, both sunrise, sunset and moonset were beautiful. The bedrooms are nice, though if you're used to premium sheets, you may want to bring them. There is radiant floor heating through out, so you stay toasty right down to your feet.
I would absolutely recommend this property, the Spinney's are great to work with. Thanks Bruce & Judy.
Lovely Home, Amazing Views, and Incredible Location!
Judy and Bruce were an absolute pleasure to work with. We reserved their Breckenridge home 6 months prior to our arrival. Judy and Bruce knew that we weren't familiar with the area and decided to surprise us with bi-monthly information packets! The packets would include local newspapers, information about ski rentals, local magazines, and more! Such a lovely gesture! From the moment we arrived on December 24, the home exceeded our expectations. Judy and Bruce left us a welcome basket (hot chocolate, wine, snacks!), and we found Christmas gifts under the Christmas tree for the young child in our group (!). Their home is perfectly located in town and offers incredible views, comfortable beds, and beautiful bathrooms. We thoroughly enjoyed the framed views of Breckenridge mountain from the living room and saw three moose and a number of unusual birds from the kitchen window. We spent several days skiing and snowshoeing, and the house was perfectly setup for these activities. This is the best rental our family has ever stayed at, and we cannot wait to return! Thanks again, Judy and Bruce. You went above and beyond!
Thank your for your review, Katherine. I am glad that your extended family enjoyed being here, and we hope Breckenridge was a treat, too. . We especially wanted Luke to enjoy Christmas away from home. Judy
Great Ski Vacation Home!
The home was great, Bruce and Judy were very nice to deal with. They made every effort to help us to be comfortable in their home. The locatin was incredible. It was just up the mountain from downtown Breck, yet felt very remote. The views alone were worth the trip. Judy's bird feeders were a big hit with our entire group. We had a fox walk through the yard one evening. We were very happy with our choice, this home is awesome!
THANKS, Rod, for your kind review. It was our good fortune to have such wonderful guests. Judy
Breckenridge is a prime location for both winter and summer living. It is known as one of the best resorts in the United States, offering a wide array of activities. Denver is 80 miles to the east, and Vail is 35 miles to the west. Lake Dillon is within 10 miles, and mountain excursions are out your back door.
