A Mine Shaft
The unique architecture and tasteful design of A Mine Shaft will pique the interest of the most discerning traveler. Enter through the front door and into a large foyer offering plenty of storage space for coats & shoes, flagstone floors, a powder bath, and an adjacent mudroom with additional storage and garage access. Through the foyer, you’ll discover the spacious, open-concept main level combining the kitchen, great room, and dining area with expansive mountain views as the backdrop.

The “Mine Shaft” centerpiece of the home is situated in the great room above the gas fireplace and is a stunning representation of an old copper mine. Above the copper mine shaft are beautiful skylights allowing for wonderful natural light all day long. The adjacent dining area offers seating for 10 at the large table, custom-made in Patagonia. The deck off of the great room offers views of Baldy Mountain and outdoor lounge furniture in the summer months.
The lower level offers endless entertainment options and plenty of space for everyone to spread out. A beautiful bar complete with full-size refrigerator, convection microwave, sink, and dishwasher will be a popular gathering spot – and an ideal place to watch over the friendly competition at the billiards table.
Or retreat to the nearby family room with a gas fireplace, large TV, and cozy seating. Beyond that, you’ll discover a ping pong table, Super Chex Hockey game, and the ultimate theatre room complete with 12 recliners, cork flooring, and specialty acoustics for optimal sound quality. In the corner of the theatre room is a faux mining tunnel crafted with nails from the Breck Flume. The stone patio and private outdoor hot tub are accessible through the lower-level family room.
The ski room, also situated on the lower level, with 15 lockers and boot warmers for 28 pairs of boots is a perfect place to gear up for an exciting day of exploring the ski resort. An exterior door leads out the lower level with easy access to the Peak 8 lifts by way of a private skiway easement exclusive to the neighborhood.

We loved the convenience of staying here and not the mention the house is amazing. Great for young kids up to adults! We would most definitely book again!
Great home and fantastic view. Would stay here again.
This home is lovely and our children and grandchildren had a wonderful time.
Top shelf in every way!
We were a group of 5 couples with kids that stayed at A Mine Shaft January 2017. The house is beautiful, in perfect conditions, very comfortable and with space enough for all of us and the kids. A short walk to the slopes is necessary for the ski-in/ski-out access but doable with small kids (4-10 years). Highly recommended!!!
Had a great time would highly recommend!
It was a great stay with everything we could have asked for. The attention to detail on the house construction was refreshing to see.
When one is planning a family vacation for the entire family you want to make sure everything is as close to perfect as you can get and especially when it comes to our entire family staying together in one house. The "Mine Shaft" home was more than we could have dreamed of and had everything a family could ask for. Plenty of room for each family (there were 4 families & 17 people total) with entertainment for everyone. The photos and description on the internet did not do the home justice and this company did a great job having everything ready for us. Can't wait to do this again.
This is an awesome house right on the mountain! We had a great time and had plenty of room for 4 families. I would highly recommend this house!!
We had a fabulous tiime in this gorgeous home. It was spectacular! The home is luxurious and had has everything you could wish for. Great for families and friends!
This ski in/ski out home was a perfect fit for our group. We had four families and everyone had plenty of space. The best part was it was just a few short steps to Peak 8 base. The children enjoyed the basement as their own space. They had a theater room, billiards and ping pong. Overall this was a very clean and well maintained property. We will definitely stay there again!
With 19 family members this was a fabulous place with plenty of room. The gorgeous decor was breathtaking, comfortable and very clean. Located at Peak 8 was a great location to walk most everywhere we wanted to go. This company was on the spot to help with any questions or problems that came up. I would certainly rent again should the opportunity arise.
Easy instructions made settling in a breeze. The home is breath taking with gorgeous detail to design and function. We loved the copper tub and master steam shower and the pool table and hot tub made for great nights.
This was our second time renting the Mine Shaft. We were here in 2017.
The house was first class, great location, and the company was very responsive to any needs we had. Only constructive feedback we had was that there seemed to be pillows missing from some of the couches or furniture. Maybe they weren't supposed to be there but there were beautiful large pieces of furniture and the pillows would have made them a little cozier. Overall the place was exceptional and we would love to go back.
Perfect location, perfect house for skiing and family fun. I would definitely recommend this house. It was very comfortable for a family ski trip. The company was also very attentive and I wouldn't hesitate to rent from them again.
This house is fantastic. Great for a group, and the downstairs bar, theater, billiards, ping pong and jacuzzi area is perfect for family or friends. Very comfortable, well maintained and well located.
Great family property with wonderful amenities and plenty of room to enjoy making memories!
We had a wonderful time at the house! The home's location near the gondola allowed easy access to town for our teenage kids. Also, the trailhead just north of the house made hoping on the trails on peak 7 & 8 very easy!
