If you’re searching for the right Breckenridge condo and having a fireplace is listed somewhere on your wishlist, you’re in luck—plenty of options are usually available at any given time. But to help jump start your search, here’s a quick look at just a few locations that feature some of the coziest condos currently on the market.

It’s brisk, it’s snowy, it’s the beginning of ski season, and it’s the perfect time of year for enjoying a yummy coffee, tea, hot chocolate, or basically anything warm to drink. In a seasonal tourist town as bustling as Breckenridge, there’s certainly no shortage of cozy tea houses, coffee shops, and cafes in the area that all serve up a great cup of Joe (or tea if that’s what you prefer). 

And if you’re wondering what some of our favorite spots are in town to frequent, here’s a closer look at just a few that come to mind.

If there is one segment of the market that some might say is struggling, most would point to condos. 

Outside of Keystone, condo sales have fallen in every town throughout Summit County, and condo sales countywide have also dropped by roughly 12 percent.
