Fireside Inn
Breckenridge, CO

Activities

Being only two blocks from Main Street means you can walk to the restaurants, shops, festivals and nightspots. Catch the year round FREE shuttle bus from our front door to the ice rink and recreation center with rock climbing wall, leisure pool, lap pool, sauna, indoor and outdoor tennis courts, skateboard park and more. Explore the mountains from a near-by hiking trail or on the bike park that parallels the river as it winds down the valley. Take time out fishing, horse back riding, white water rafting or riding the alpine slide. Golf at the Breckenridge Golf Club, a Jack Nicklaus designed, four star public golf course. Enjoy the historic town of Breckenridge on foot or by horse drawn carriage. And of course in the winter you can downhill ski, snowboard, snow shoe or cross country in the beautiful Summit County. So whether you wish to enjoy lazy days or be busy every minute, Fireside Inn offers you both.
