Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • True ski-in/ski-out property at the base of Peak 7
  • Big, sophisticated condos with kitchens and fireplaces
  • Attractive patio with two Jacuzzis and fire pit
  • American fare and nice views at The Sevens
  • At the Breck-Connect Gondola, with a lift into town
  • Use of amenities at nearby sister lodge, One Ski Hill Place
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Ski/snowboard rentals on-site

Cons

  • Not within walking distance of Main Street
  • Restaurant overpriced, and very busy in winter

Bottom Line

The Crystal Peak Lodge is one of the higher-end properties in Breckenridge, and has a great winter location on Peak 7, right on the Breck-Connect Gondola line. Upscale details can be found throughout, including exposed wood beams in the open common area, and stone fireplaces in the big, individually owned condos. There are two Jacuzzis on-site, but no pool -- though guests have free access to One Ski Hill Place's amenities, including the indoor pools, the two-lane Mine Shaft Bowling alley, and media rooms.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

Mountain chic, with classic lodge undertones

The Crystal Peak Lodge is newer construction for the area (late 2008), and it feels upscale, with exposed wood beams, sophisticated furniture, and big windows for taking in the excellent mountain views. The overstuffed leather sofas and chairs near the large fireplace in the main common area are popular after a day on the slopes.

The Crystal Peak Lodge achieves the perfect medium between high-end style and traditional lodge decor. Condos are individually owned, but most have leather and wood accents, warm-toned throws and pillows, and thankfully, little to no plaid.

 Location

Right on Peak 7 next to the Breck-Connect Gondola

The Crystal Peak Lodge is located directly on the mountain, and the Gondola on-site and transports guests within walking distance to Main Street. It's a true ski-in/ski-out property, and because of the great location on the mountain, the views are excellent.

  • 2-hour drive from the closest airport, Denver International Airport
  • 1-minute walk to the Breck-Connect Gondola
  • 8-minute drive to the Breckenridge Welcome Center
  • 9-minute drive to the closest brewery, Breckenridge Brewery
  • 9-minute drive to the Stephen C. West Ice Arena, for ice skating
  • 9-minute drive to City Market, for groceries and resupply

 Rooms

Modern lodge-style luxury, with modern finishes and appliances

Two Bedroom Condo
Two Bedroom Condo

Large modern kitchens are standard at Crystal Peak Lodge, with full granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and dual sinks. Most units have separate dining areas and countertop breakfast bars.

Every condo has a stone fireplace, and most have balconies. Beautiful bathrooms are among the largest in Breckenridge; most have marble accents, deep soaking tubs, separate walk-in showers, and dual vanities.

 Features

Two outdoor Jacuzzis located right on the mountain, but no pool

Outdoor Jacuzzi
Outdoor Jacuzzi

Crystal Peak Lodge features two outdoor Jacuzzis, comfy common areas, and a billiards table in the main living area, but it lacks an on-site spa or pool. Guests can use sister property One Ski Hill Place's amenities, which include two media centers, a bowling alley and indoor pools.

 Food

The Sevens is open seasonally and serves American classics and wood-fired pizzas.

The Sevens is little pricey, and is also heavily trafficked in the winter -- to be expected at a restaurant located right on the mountain. Its breakfast buffet is decent, and expect items such as wood-fired pizzas, steaks, sandwiches, and burgers for lunch and dinner. It's closed seasonally, so guests will have to cook for themselves or travel to Main Street in the summer months.

 Bottom Line

The Crystal Peak Lodge is one of the higher-end properties in Breckenridge, and has a great winter location on Peak 7, right on the Breck-Connect Gondola line. Upscale details can be found throughout, including exposed wood beams in the open common area, and stone fireplaces in the big, individually owned condos.
