Carbondale house description

Let the magic of the mountains touch you and your loved ones souls like nowere else possible! ALPINE BEAUTY/LUXURY/SERENITY REDEFINED!
Wake up to coffee in bed in the master bedroom. Simply open your eyes from the comfort bed to and drink in mountain grandeur to start your day! Clean, honey colored wood floors with radiant floor heat meet your feet. Shower or bathe in a deep cast iron tub with views and slate tile to provide tactile warmth.
Perched on a promontory with a commanding views of Mountains, lakes, a waterfall, ponds, high alpine peaks and huge sky, the cabin in the sky is a perfect place to plan a family retreat, romantic getaway or a staging location for access to high alpine environments. Comfortable, with year round access the home is wonderful to visit during peak flower season, the height of fall color in the Rockies, the lush/verdant summers or the winter wonderland epic snow days of winter. You have to see it to believe how beautiful it really is.The home itself is elegant, open and extremely well appointed with a flat screen TV, full kitchen, 21' ceilings, wood stoves and radiant heat and is sunny all day long. Experience the rain, thunder and lightning or the snowstorms of winter in the Cabin in the sky while lounging in comfort. Please inquire about the studio that rents for 115.00 a night as well!
It is perhaps more beautiful than can be imagined . However, for those who appreciate a peaceful and tranquil setting you will enjoy every moment of your stay here! For those who want a vacation in the mountains that is really in the mountains, like us, and all of our guests, this home could be a great fit. Very close to REDSTONE AND CARBONDALE AND IN MARBLE. Hotchkiss, Peyonia and Delta are great day trip locations where a plethora of fresh veggies, fruits and wine are available in the bread basket of colorado. Therefore, it is unique and is for those who want an authentic mountain getaway. Here you can connect dot by dot, one peaceful, inspirational experience to another. When you depart after a relaxing visit, you will have a treasure trove of images, memories and serenity to accompany you.

Aspen wood ceilings, clear dug fir floors, plush furniture, a sprawling open kitchen with tons of counter space, classic decor, a deep cast iron tub and 21' cathedral ceilings were some of the reasons why this home was featured in The Aspen Sojourner magazine mid winter 2008 edition under 'In style, off the Grid.'
Every window projects it's astonishing natural beauty into the house weather you are in bed, on the couch reading your favorite book, in the rocking chair by the wood stove, or enjoying cooking or eating a meal.
This solar home puts you on the very threshold of access to pure mountain beauty and ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES FOR ADVENTURE.
Beaver dams and a thriving riparian habitat are so close you can see trout rise on the lake. Mist and fog rises from the waterfall and settles into the valley offering dynamic and constantly changing scenery.
13,000 foot mountains surround, offering 360' views of rugged alpine scenery. In floor radiant heat is a feature offering comfort in the cold of winter along with a wood burning stove. Perched on a promontory you can look down 1000 feet to the river, water fall and lake and up 4000 feet to surrounding peaks and cliffs.


Although all types of activities are always beckoning we find we don't want to leave the house as being home affords the opportunity to observe in comfort and luxury, after any number of mini-adventures. Hawks, falcons, elk, deer and fox are commonly seen from the house. Rainbows, dramatic thunder storms, blue bird sunny days from this vantage point are common. The view out every window is a masterpiece. The cabin is in a very sunny south facing location; offering ample sunlight in the winter, great fall color viewing in the fall.

Marble peak is one of the most popular back-country ski destination in Colorado. Do a visual check off the deck as it is a peak just south of the house, about 3 miles away.
Hikes to the Crystal mill (one of the most photographed spots in Colorado) near the old mining town of crystal takes you along the crystal river on the way to lead king basin or Crested Butte for wonderful wild flower viewing, or watch the aspen turn colors in the fall. Lizard lake is along this road as well.
REDSTONE AND CARBONDALE CLOSE.
