The Silver Echo (each unit is named after a local mine) will provide discerning guests with a private retreat incorporating all the finest of amenities. It's perfect for that special vacation or gathering. Throughout the condo the designer furnishings are accented by original artwork from the owners private collection. Numerous windows throughout the entire main living area affords fabulous Ajax (Aspen mountain) views. Watch skiers descend or hikers ascend Ajax from the gourmet kitchen as you enjoy your morning coffee while seated in the dining room or the living room. You have the best seat in the house!
The upstairs living room /loft features a gas fireplace and leads out onto your huge private rooftop deck. Your deck offers plenty of seating for a meal or a front row seat for Aspen fireworks. Perhaps you'll want to BBQ on your professional BBQ grill at your disposal. While you're here, enjoy the spectacular 360 degree panoramic views of the mountains and town.
The Silver Echo additionally offers two suites with private baths. One master suite offers a king size bed, the other a queen. Each bedroom is uniquely appointed with vintage accessories. The large recently remodeled bathrooms, include separate sinks, over sized tubs and separate tile showers. To make your visit as comfortable as possible top of the line bedding including down comforters, Crabtree and Evelyn bath products and luxurious linens/down pillows will ensure a good nights sleep even after a hard day on the slopes.
The kitchen, which was remodeled in 2008, has built-ins, a pantry, plenty of barware and cooking utensils. This is a gourmet chef's dream : Subzero refrigerator, Wolf range, granite slab counters and all the utensils you will need to create that special meal.
The winter offers world class skiing for all ability levels, free shuttles to Snowmass, Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk ski areas, world renowned shopping, gourmet dining, galleries, and a town rich in culture and history, all easily accessible due to your ideal location.
Summers are equally as enjoyable and beautiful when the activities include fly-fishing, river rafting, hiking, mountain biking, canoeing, many special festivals and more. Plan to come for the Aspen Food and Wine Festival, Aspen Music Festival, Comedy Festival or other cultural events. If you come to ski we are just 2 blocks from the Silver Queen Gondola which services Aspen mountain. We are a block away from the free shuttle that takes you to Snowmass, Aspen Highlands, or Buttermilk ski areas.
Down the stairs and out the front door you are surrounded by the finest restaurants, art galleries, coffee bars, bakeries, designer clothiers, the famous Caribou Club, movie theaters and the most wondrous little shops filled with serendipity.
Previous guests have included world and financial leaders celebrities from TV, film and sports.
This is the ideal place to stay if you want a private restful luxurious vacation yet still in the hub of things!

VRBO Bear stayed here:
My friends and I couldn't wait for our weekend getaway in Aspen. This lovely condo, the Penthouse in the beautifully preserved historic Brand Building definitely exceeded our expectations. You will be equally impressed when you step into this elegant and tastefully decorated condo. The magnificent views will take your breath away as you gaze out the oversized windows soaking up the view of Aspen (Ajax) Mountain from virtually anywhere in this beautiful condo.
The layout is unique, with comfortable beds and full bathrooms with sunken tubs (bear sized). The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need for dining in. It was a treat to barbeque from the rooftop, star gaze and listen to the live music playing on the streets below. With such a great location in the center of town, you won’t need the car. Our gracious owner gave us recommendations for a fun filled, yet relaxing weekend.
Aspen itself is full of the charm and character you’ll want to experience for yourself. It’s an ideal place for an adventurous bear like myself, who loves the outdoors. You won't want to miss a walk or bike ride along the Roaring Fork River and see amazing views of the lush foliage and wildlife. While hiking is plentiful, if you aren't up for the climb, a scenic gondola ride is a favorite alternative. The streets of Aspen, lined with red brick and an array of beautiful trees, display historical buildings where you will find shops from eclectic to couture. Restaurants are plentiful here where Aspen is known for its world-class cuisine. You will also enjoy a diverse mix of entertainment on virtually every block, including music and art displays.
While our summer vacation experience was superb, Aspen’s skiing and winter activities make it a wonderful year-round destination. We treasured our time in this lovely downtown Aspen condo and are sure that you will find the same.

Absolutely perfect experience.
Absolutely perfect experience.
I with some friends decided to make a long weekend in Aspen and choose this wonderful residence. Everything from the booking of the residence to the location was perfect. It is minutes from all the restaurants and is with out a doubt a great find in the heart of Aspen. We grilled outside and just took in the magnificent views of Aspen Mtn. and watched the sun rise and set from the great deck. Please consider this residence for your stay.
