Only 25 minutes to Aspen and just 10 minutes to the quaint Mountain Village town of Basalt.

The Master Bedroom with its own large bath and a Guest Bedroom Plus the Laundry Room completes the second floor.

This heavily treed 2.75 acre lot (complete with deer daily grazing all around the lot - quite fun to watch!) is up in the prestigious Missouri Heights subdivision.

There also is a detached 3 car garage. (2 spaces available for You) and a RV parking spot. A 3rd floor office loft is setup with desk and high speed wireless internet. Be on vacation and still be in touch with the office.

              Great mountain view log cabin in Basalt, Colorado close to Aspen! 09/27/2010

              VRBO Bear stayed here:


              What an amazing property, a true “getaway” gem! My bear family and I felt right at home in this true Real Mountain Log home. There’s a breathtaking view of Mount Sopris from the large living room windows. There is also a second story viewing deck which makes a perfect place to sip coffee and just take it all in. In fact there are 3 "under the tree" viewing patios to get lost in a book or just relax with friends and family. Groups of deer frequent this heavily treed lot, and several other creatures you’ll enjoy watching. With Aspen, Basalt, Carbondale and Glenwood Springs so close, you won’t have to worry about having plenty to do. The only problem will be trying to decide where to spend your time. We spent most our time lounging at the cabin, hiking in Carbondale and having a blast at the Glenwood Hot Springs Pool.

              When you think mountain log home, you may think you’re working with the “bear” necessities, but that’s not true here. You’ll have wireless internet, cable/satellite TV, and a giant drop down projector with a Blu-Ray player. There is plenty to keep you physically entertained as well including a billiards/game room area, and ping pong table in the garage. And who can resist a top of the line 7 person (or bear) hot tub?

              So, come to the mountains! Relax in the in the master bathroom jetted bathtub, or live it up by riding your mountain bikes to and from Aspen. Whatever kind of vacation you are looking for, this home will deliver. With 2 kitchens and 5 bedrooms you can comfortably sleep 10 and have plenty of room to spare!
