Glenwood Springs house description

We have had 9 years of experience of making our renters happy. Every year is better and better. See our reviews and compare. Even the VRBO Bear came to stay and gave it a thumbs up. Also note that we don't have those sneaky cleaning fees or resort fees. Ask us about discounts for smaller groups of 10 people or less. Give the best Christmas gift ever, a memorable trip with family or friends together at the Sunshine Ridge Guest House. Enjoy a relaxing time together, away from the hustle & bustle. Great for an intimate wedding, birthday gift, book club retreat, yoga retreat, corporate retreat, mens golf outing, hiking group, hunting trip, bike tour and of course family reunion. Sit by the fire & play games with family or friends. Come relax & enjoy the great outdoors in an authentic mountain town. Glenwood is one of the last true mountain towns that still has the 'Old West' feel. Make Glenwood your home for a week or weekend & stay at a great mountain home with your family & friends. Very family friendly. The restaurants, shopping & conveniences of Glenwood Springs are just 5 miles away. If you are skiing, the house is on the same road to Sunlight Mt resort, just a few miles down the road. Our 40 acre property is part of a conservation easement protected by the Aspen Valley Land Trust. The house is within a 5 minute drive of Sunlight Mountain Ski Resort, White River National Forest, and unlimited recreational activities from white water rafting to mountain biking to world class fly fishing. Glenwood Hot Springs is only 10 min away as well as the Glenwood Caverns & Amusement Pk. Any time is our favorite times to enjoy Glenwood Springs because of the fabulous colors, great temperatures and... the hot springs & caverns/adventure park are open year round. Of couse everyone loves summer because of the sunshine and so many outdoor activites. They also love winter because skiing at Sunlight Ski Mountain is a blast & family friendly. It is our family's favorite place to ski in Colorado. Please note: We NEVER accept wired funds & NO cashier's checks, for your safety and ours.

Special Discount for Seniors: Please call for Senior Citizen Discount. Snowbirds welcome!

********What can I do in Glenwood Springs?

Glenwood Springs was listed as one of the top seven ski towns in Rand McNally & USA Today's January 2012 issue of 'Best of the Road'.

Read what Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park Blogger, Mandy Gauldin, Public Relations guru has to say...

'There’s a reason Glenwood Springs was named the Most Fun Town in America by Rand McNally and USA Today. It really is fun, and that makes it a great destination for spring breakers. Whether you live on the Front Range and need a staycation, or are coming from out-of-state for your Colorado ski trip, we hope you’ll consider Glenwood Springs.

(Any time of the year) here’s a look at what you can do in Glenwood Springs:

*In the off-season, Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park has smaller crowds than you’ll find here in the summer. Our Winter Fun Pass will still be available, and it’s an incredible deal. For just $31 per person, you get a round-trip ride on the Iron Mountain Tramway, or a bus in inclement weather, a 70-minute guided Cave Tour, and unlimited access to the Alpine Coaster, 4D Motion Theater and Laser Tag Arena. You can add lunch at the Lookout Grille.
*Ski or ride at one or more of the seven ski resorts located within an hour of Glenwood Springs, including Vail, Aspen, Aspen Highlands, Beaver Creek, Snowmass, Buttermilk and Sunlight Mountain Resort. That’s especially nice because the lodging in Glenwood Springs is significantly more affordable than in neighboring Aspen and Vail, and you are located right in the middle of these world-class resorts.
*Play and relax at the Glenwood Hot Springs, the world’s largest hot springs pool, which is well known for its healing mineral waters. Weather permitting, the pool’s two water slides will be open the last two weeks of March, which adds even more fun to your swim. The pool is open until 10 p.m. every night, so you can spend the day with us, and then relax in the pool afterwards.
*You can also laugh the night away at the Glenwood Vaudeville Revue, get pampered at one of several spas in town, take a snowmobile tour, go snowshoeing or cross-country skiing, choose from an amazing variety of restaurants and go shopping. With more than 100 stores, Glenwood Springs is the largest retail shopping area between Denver and Grand Junction.'

                              Relaxing by the beautiful fireplace 10/18/2009

                              VRBO Bear stayed here:


                              As we drove up the driveway, my companions and I were immediately impressed with the beautiful “Sunshine Ridge Guest House” that sits on 40 mountainside acres. As we entered this wonderful home, our visit only got better. The warm entryway led us into the expansive gourmet kitchen and dining area which also housed a wonderful fireplace. On the opposite side of the fireplace was a sitting area featuring an additional fireplace, floor-to-ceiling windows and a large deck to show off the surrounding Glenwood Springs scenery. Every window that we looked out offered amazing views of the mountains, meadows, horses and wildlife.

                              This amazing home boasted seven bedrooms that were fabulously decorated and very inviting, as well as the large game room with a big screen TV and pool table. The large, professionally installed patio in the back featured plenty of furniture and a large grill. It was a great place to soak up the warm sun in the morning! We also had no problem parking four vehicles in the garage/driveway area with plenty of room to spare.

                              The seven bedrooms were located in the wings of the “Sunshine Ridge Guest House”. One upstairs wing included a master king bedroom and large master bathroom while the second upstairs wing included a king bedroom with a second bedroom that had a full sized bed and a twin bed. These two rooms shared a beautiful Jack-n-Jill bathroom. One downstairs wing featured a bedroom with a king bed with a bedroom that had two twin beds with another Jack-n-Jill bathroom connecting them. The second downstairs wing offered another king bedroom with another bathroom connecting it to a bedroom with a queen bed. When it was time to turn in for the night, we all felt cozy and warm given the abundant amounts of privacy the home’s floor plan provided.

                              My 15 companions and I enjoyed great family meals and conversation as we all sat together around the spacious dining room table. The large gourmet kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to cook any meal and allowed room for MORE than one cook. The recreation and game rooms downstairs were welcoming and well furnished. We watched football on the large screen TV and I beat everyone at several games of pool. The recreation room featured a futon couch and pull-out bed as an additional sleeping option. We also spent a lot of time outside hiking and exploring the beautiful acreage of conservation land around the Sunshine Ridge Guest House.

                              The “Sunshine Ridge Guest House” was conveniently located. It was only a 15-minute scenic drive to the house from the quaint shops in downtown Glenwood Springs, local restaurants, the Hot Springs Pool, and the Iron Mountain Tramway to the Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park.

                              A visit to this spectacular vacation home will not be a disappointment. Every moment you spend here will be a treasure trove of memories that will last a lifetime.

                                I completely agree with the other reviews that I had read on the site prior to booking the guest house. Pictures are not able to do this property justice. The well cared for house and its surroundings are dramatic. The floor plan works extremely well for families and other groups. The location feels private and secluded but the town is still close enough that we could easily do the things we wanted (and get the things we needed) without a lot of driving. We loved that house isn't visible at all from the road yet still offers incredible views. One practical suggestion, if you are driving in from Denver and are Costco members, consider making a stop at the Gypsum warehouse on the way. We were able to get much of what we needed for our large group in one quick trip. Glenwood Springs and the Roaring Fork Valley are hidden gems with all the natural beauty and year round recreation opportunities of other Colorado tourist areas but with far greater value. I highly recommend staying long enough to take in all that the guest house and surrounding attractions have to offer. I can't recommend enough the guest house, it's owners and their local hosts.

                                Recommended for: Families with teenagers, age 55+, people with disabilities, families with young children, sightseeing, adventure seekers.

                                Owner response: We love your practical suggestion to stop at Costco in Gypsum on the way up from Denver. There are also 2 grocery stores in Glenwood Springs for last minute items, but Costso offers the best selection and price for large groups to cook meals at home in the great kitchen at the Sunshine Ridge Guest House.

                                Amazing. Everything was perfect, from the initial communication with the owners, to the beautiful location and the spacious, yet cozy place. We could not have asked for a better location for our family reunion of over 20 people, including kids. The whole place was in perfect shape and clean. This property added to the overall enjoyment of our vacation. Thank you!

                                I was the chef for a Yoga retreat at Sunshine Ridge in the fall of 2013. The aspens were at the height of their colorful glory. The property is quiet and beautiful in ways that only the Colorado mountains can provide. It was a restful and restorative experience, even for someone responsible for feeding everyone 3 times a day. The best guest house I have seen in Colorado. A word to the foodies: The kitchen is beautifully equipped with plenty of prep space and a Viking stove that was truly a pleasure to cook on.

                                We used Sunshine Ridge Guest House last fall for gathering of yogis. The layout allowed for privacy as well as group gatherings. The kitchen and dining area were a DREAM! We even gathered for group cooking. The patios all around allowed for peaceful repose any time of day. The fall colors were spectacular and the stars at night were breathtaking. It's difficult to get the scope of the feeling of serenity just from pictures. Everything about the process of renting this house was ease-ful. In fact we are so pleased with our experience that we immediately booked for the same weekend this year! Everything was clean, comfortable, well stocked. This home is well loved and cared for and those qualities surround you the moment you walk in the door.

                                Dream house! First of all I would like to thank Jim for being so helpful and kind. The house has a beautiful layout and great amenities. The views were spectacular. My entire family really enjoyed their stay and were very impressed. I loved the heated floors! The kitchen was awesome. I could keep going and have only positive praise for this wonderful house. I feel like the pictures do not do it justice, walking in to the place was astonishing. Very clean and welcoming. Sunlight Mountain resort is nearby and we enjoyed two days of snowboarding during our stay. We followed this up with an evening at the hot springs. My favorite place to eat was Peppinos pizza. Our family really had fun right outside the house, we made snowmen, had snowball fights, and went sledding up and down the hill. I would definitely recommend this place!

                                Owner response: Thanks Brenda, I love my job when I hear that our guests had a great time at the house and Glenwood Springs. We are happy that you enjoyed many of the great activities in town; the hot springs at night can be amazing, especially after a day of skiing. The heated floors in the house are also a warm welcome after a cold day outside. We hope you will carry your happy memories for a long time and hope you took some great photos to remember them by. Happy 2014!

                                We held a Thanksgiving family reunion here and the house is superb. The touches of luxury make the experience truly unforgettable. The house is filled with beautiful paintings and lovely furniture and the bedding is top-of-the-line. My husband and I stayed in a tucked-away bedroom on the lower level and the sheets, blankets and pillows were soft and comfortable, as good as any five star hotel room. We even had a flat screen tv if we wanted some quiet time. Each room is spotlessly clean, welcoming, and decorated with an artist's eye. The kitchen is set up for a large group and we used every inch and every dish! The large granite countertop with bar stools was just right for entertaining. At one point we had a difficulty with a locked door and the manager arrived within minutes, took care of the lock and left with a handshake and a smile. We enjoyed the beautiful views from the deck and spotted some coyotes and some turkeys too. This home is less than fifteen minutes from the world-famous Hot Springs, just a short drive from Sunlight Ski Resort and is within minutes of the gold medal Roaring Fork trout river. I would definitely recommend this exceptional property and I hope to rent it again someday.

                                Owner response: Thanks Bonnie! We really appreciate your kind words. Our property managers are true artists, and take great pride in helping us create a unique and beautiful home. We're very grateful to have them as our partners - especially since they live so close to Sunshine Ridge and are available to help our guests whenever needed. Thanks again!

                                The location: it really is set on a mountain with amazing views and only 13 minutes from everything in Glenwood. A steep left turn, easy drive up,large parking area. A garage with access to the hall to unload. The front door opens to an eye popping great room, with acoustics that let everyone talk, but be well heard. The design I would call "Top end Western" and is beautiful, and livable. The caretaker said they did all the designing (they should be PROS) and when I asked if I could lift the child’s saddle down so the little ones could sit on it he said yes, which they LOVED! The Kitchen is now my dream, it has EVERYTHING you might need. We had 39 visitors Thanksgiving day, and there was PLENTY supplies for all. I put mine back in the car. Anything you need is there: the only supplies I used were our carafes for filling coffee from the 2 makers, foil (after we used theirs, I left the end of my box) some baggies, and some extra wine glasses. Every possible tool is there. Electric, hand, pans, all. Including a wok pan my Chinese family used to make a treat. They don’t mention they have a Pantry for storage, which we used cheerfully. The double dishwashers were in continuous use, and a real treat.The washroom has towels for the pool, which we used, washed and used again. The 2 washers were great, easy to use and handy. The top floor tv-less living area is radiant floor heated, the crawlers were happy. The games are varied and fun, not old, (my bag of games was not used.) The couches are cozy comfy and were a great visiting area. The outside areas in winter were fine, we saw coyotes, turkeys and deer on the opposite hill loved it and the other side deck with the pergola. The dining area held, creatively, ALL 39 of us. And the 85 Y.O. grandpa sat in the rocker 12 hours a day having a ball! The bathrooms were all sparkly clean and beautiful. All the beds were super comfy and perfect for the guests. The pool table area was where the 13 almost adult cousins hung out and became friends again (every 2 years makes it difficult for them.) Some played pool, others watched TV, others with games. Glad no cell service, it made them have to be social! The phone worked just fine for essentials. The Wine Cave was great. For $10 they had a great selection. Next time: I will use theirs! I only used a few bottles, yummy! The caretakers were awesome. We only had to call them a few times, and they were the best people ever. Sets a standard for Home Away

                                Owner response: Wow, the lovely account of your experience together with your family has encouraged us to plan another trip with our large family. Everyone under one roof is such a sweet experience, especially if grandpa is in the picture. Thanks for the details about the house; we update the house monthly and try to add items that are needed...like the second dishwasher :) Sounds like we need one or two more coffee carafes (and new frying pans for the Sunshine Ridge Guest House are on my holiday wishlist). Thanks again for sharing & please feel free to call or email us with any other suggestions for improvements. Best Wishes for a Happy and Healthy 2014!

                                We held a yoga retreat here in mid-October. It was the perfect place for a retreat! The home is beautiful and the view is amazing. One dishwasher wasn't working, but it didn't matter because there was a second one to use! The kitchen was well stocked and it was great for the professional chefs we brought in for the retreat participants. Overall, an incredible experience and we will definitely make the retreat at this house an annual event!

                                Owner response: Wow, yoga in the mountains sounds very therapeutic & professional chefs are the icing on the cake. Sounds like the perfect weekend. We hope everyone left refreshed and rejuvenated. We are very happy to hear you enjoyed the house, kitchen & views....and we look forward to seeing you again. Thanks for your sharing your thoughts. Namaste.

                                I can’t thank you enough for allowing us to use your wonderful home in Glenwood Springs. How you must enjoy your time there!! Our extended family enjoyed biking, hiked to Hanging Lake, rode Segway's and horses, went rafting and rode ATVs. We also went to the community center to swim and use the climbing wall. Our day at the Adventure Park was also memorable. Some of our kids rode the Canyon Cliffhanger 9 times! Several of us took your advice and hiked up the ridge behind the house to enjoy the view of the valley, which is spectacular! The Vaudeville Revue was a fitting end to our week. We never had a problem getting the kids to bed at night! We cooked at home almost every meal, and enjoyed eating on the patio most nights. What a lovely setting! Your kitchen is well-equipped and we made good use of the large pans and serving dishes. We will definitely recommend you to friends who are looking for a similar experience.

                              Year Purchased: 2005

                              About the owner: Our family lives in Colorado on the Front Range and we love to travel. Our favorite place to revisit is Glenwood Springs, for skiing, spring flowers, summer fun, fall leaf peeping and celebrating holidays with friends. We come to the house with many types of friends, too...yoga groups, kayak teams, CU engineering RA retreat groups, team building meetings for our other business, chefs cook-offs, weddings, and just relaxing with friends and family. Everyone we bring loves the house and the town of Glenwood Springs.

                              Why the Owner Chose Glenwood Springs:
                              We have rented homes around the country with our family and friends for many, many years. We visited Glenwood Springs and fell in love with the town. As soon as we walked into the Sunshine Ridge Guest House, we knew that it was a perfect place to be a 'Second Home' for all and decided to purchase it for a Vacation Rental Home. It is so warm, welcoming and family friendly inside. The floor plan is perfect for a large group because there are wings where you can hide for privacy, but many options in and outside for large gatherings. The views are stunning and therapeutic. The house is located in a quiet valley, but close to town, skiing and outdoor activities. Of course, there are great options for wildlife viewing and hiking on the property, too.
