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. Ask us about discounts for smaller groups of 10 people or less. Sleeps 18 comfortably but see rates below. 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.

********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 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.'

Saving you money - cost comparison: The Sunshine Ridge Guest House Value Proposition

•For a Party of 16, our nightly rates are anywhere from $44 -$63 per person, depending on the season.
As you consider accommodations for your group, please compare our rates to your other options. Our per person prices are comparable to most hotels in the area, and Sunshine Ridge offers a huge, gourmet kitchen and great common areas for your group to gather. When comparing costs, also consider the money you will save by cooking instead of eating out. We’ve gone out of our way to insure you’ll have everything you need for a relaxing and comfortable vacation, at pricing that will make you wonder why you would ever go back to a hotel room.

                  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.

                  Location

                  Car: Recommended

                  The Sunshine Ridge Guest House is 5 miles Southwest of the town of Glenwood Springs, and 5 miles Northeast of Sunlight Mountain Resort and the White River National Forest. Our road (Four Mile Road aka County Rd 117) ends at the Sunlight ski area and a Forest Service Road. About 40 miles from Aspen and an hour to Vail. Very close to Carbondale, Basalt and Redstone.

                  Other Activities: snow mobiling, white water rafting

                  Golf: Several great golf options in the area.

                  Ski: So many skiing options!!! Sunlight is 5 minutes away and is great for families. Aspen & Snow mass are about 45 minutes away. Vail, Buttermilk & Beaver Creek are also good options.

                   

                  Owner info

                  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 birthday or holidays with friends. We come to the house with many types of friends, too...yoga groups, kayak teams, College retreat groups, team building meetings for business, chefs cook-offs, weddings, and just relaxing with friends and family. Everyone we bring loves the house and the town of Glenwood Springs. We always have so much fun with our group of friends that we wanted to share the experience and opportunity with you. That is why we started renting. Read our reviews and you can see why we have been in business for 9 years. It makes us happy to know our guests are sharing great memories together at the house.

                  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.
