Property description

Located right on the Roaring Fork River between Aspen and Glenwood Springs, this beautiful river retreat is the perfect place to base your Colorado get away.
This custom home is beautifully appointed and has a relaxed homey feeling. It sits on 2 acres of manicured lawn with trees and flowers. Relax in the hot tub or sit on the spacious deck where you can view the river, the many species of birds, the surrounding mountains, or watch the endless stars above at night. You'll be serenaded by the silvery sounds of the small stream that runs through the property and falls through three small ponds before cascading down a waterfall next to the deck.
Just one mile from Carbondale's cultural center, you can dine, shop, and enjoy the local night life. Only a half a block from the Roaring Fork Bike trail, where you can ride from Glenwood Springs to Aspen, or anywhere in between. You'll be located just 30 miles from Aspen's world renowned ski areas, shopping and night life. Just down the road, you'll find Ski Sunlight with its family friendly atmosphere. Cross country skiing and snow shoeing are also near by. Winter or summer, you can take a dip in the world famous Glenwood Hot Springs Pool. In the summer, endless opportunities for hiking and mountain biking await you in the area.
Out your back door is the Roaring Fork, a Gold Medal fishing river, and great rafting. A few miles away the Frying Pan River beckons with additional opportunities for Gold Medal fishing. The nearby Crystal River offers opportunities for fishing, rafting and family fun.
You couldn't find a nicer place for your family reunion, wedding gathering, or mountain vacation in Colorado.
