Awesome house with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this property. The house is very well stocked and accessorized. We had great views thru the telescope of the herd of elk across the mountain. The pictures of the property online do not do the views justice. This is definitely some of the prettiest country in the world! Fantastic place!

Absolutely amazing location and home!

  • 5 of 5

If you don't reserve this house then you and your family will be missing out big time. Everything was amazing and the property manager (Frank) had everything in order and in perfect shape. The views from this home are amazing and the location is extremely peaceful. Awesome place to stay and enjoy beautiful Colorado at it's finest! Rod Henningsen

GREAT FAMILY RETREAT

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. We were celebrating our son's wedding which was in Maroon Bells. The home was breathtaking. The views amazing. This home had every amenity you could possibly need. The caretaker Frank was extremely helpful with local spots. It was hard for all of us to leave. Would love to see in the winter!

Colorado Dream House

  • 5 of 5

Our group could not have had a more positive experience from beginning to end. The owner is responsive, freindly and very helpful. The property manager was so accommodating and nice. Our group consisted of 12 adults and the house was incredibly spacious-- It fit all of us with room to spare. The kitchen is massive and they have every kind of utensil and tool you could want-- We stayed in and cooked two nights of our stay as the dining room easily sat 12 of us! The view from the deck and hot tub is breathtaking-- Something out of a movie. We spent one night out in Aspen into the late evening hours, and it was very easy to get two SUV's to accommodate travel to and from the house. The stunning pictures on this site don't even do the house justice-- it is truly a DREAM HOME!

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had not been to Aspen for a ski trip in many years and decided this year (on short notice) to plan a stay in early February. We had originally planned to visit in early April, however, our schedules changed and we needed to move our trip. Phil, the property owner, was gracious and flexible in allowing us a last-minute booking change and coordinated our arrival with the local property manager, Frank. We had a stay to remember with our expectations being far exceeded.

Frank personally met us at the Aspen airport where we followed him to this beautiful home. Once there, he showed us around the property, highlighted several places to visit, shop, and eat, and made the excellent suggestion of skiing Elk Camp at Aspen/Snowmass. This home sits on a ridge with 360 degree views including Snowmass and is a short drive from the ski slopes, downtown Aspen, Basalt, and Independence Pass where we went on a day-long snowmobile trip.

With the many activities we enjoyed during our visit, we just had to stay at this house our entire last day to enjoy the spectacular views and home comforts. We hope to revisit Aspen (with family this time) again soon and will surely hope this property is available then.
