  • It was a wonderful experience. Restoration beautifully done.
  • Great part of history. My kids loved.
  • It's the preserved house of a relatively major figure of the town's past, a former slave who traveled the world and made some decent money from operating hotels. The docent was knowledgeable and quite friendly.
  • Well organized & clean. The curator was informative.
  • Beautiful replica of a honorable mans home and life.

Where to stay in Breckenridge

Many cabins and lodges take inspiration from the mountains in their design at Breckenridge. If you're there to ski, find a hotel or inn near the slopes that offers ski in/ski out options, or choose lodging along the free shuttle route so you don't have to worry about parking. If you're traveling with a family and are planning to stay a week or so, consider booking a condo or private home with plenty of space to spread out. You'll find small and exclusive bed and breakfasts in the center of town, while sprawling resorts are located away from the main street on the forested mountainside.
