Carbondale house description

Our log home provides a place for our family and friends to escape and unplug. We would like to share it with others who are captivated by the mountains and the activities that go with a mountain get away. The majestic setting is private and peaceful, yet minutes from excellent dining/shopping and even a Whole Foods Store. The unobstructed view of Mt. Sopris with the ranch lands below provides an ever-changing scene. Whether it's for morning coffee, afternoon sunning, or evening stargazing,the deck can be enjoyed almost every day of the year. Elk, deer, coyotes, fox and a plethora of birds inhabit the property along with some pesky chipmunks.
Our log home exudes relaxation from the moment one enters the doors. One guest says, 'Each time I visit, I fall in love with the place all over again!'
The three level living provides ample room for a variety of generations and provides sleeping accomodations for twelve. The main floor has an open living/kitchen area which expands to the large deck with its incredible views, a hot tub, and several grills.
Also on this floor are two bedrooms (queen bed) and a bath.
The master suite (king) is perched in the loft; Mt. Sopris can be viewed from the master shower.
The walk-out lower level includes a family room with 52' screen, the fourth bedroom (king), and bunk room (sleeps 4) and a bath. The house has plenty of linens and towels.
The ample parking area provides room for trailers and multiple vehicles. This property includes 4+ acres bordered by BLM land
and accessed via black top road.

                  Car: Necessary

                  Our log home is located 170 miles west of Denver and is just minutes from Carbondale. Carbondale is situated in the heart of Colorado's central Rocky Mountains at the confluence of the Crystal and Roaring Fork Rivers. This lively, hostoric town was listed as 'Top 12 Towns' in National Geographic Adventure magazine's '50 Next Greatest Places to Live and Play'.

                  Carbondale is at the crossroads which makes for great exploring. Travel to Moab in 3 hrs., Crested Butte in 2 hrs., Vail in 1hr., Redstone in 25 min., Marble in 40 min., Aspen in 40 minutes or Glenwood Springs in 15 min.

                  Mt. Sopirs is the god of the valley and the majestic backdrop for Carbondale. This picturesque town embraces a sense of community that values recreation, great dining, art and artistis, community gatherings and events - all underlined by a relaxed, upbeat lifestyle.

                  The First Friday of each month finds the historic downtown businesses, the Third Street Center, and the Hwy 133 corridor hosting evening open houses along with live music, street performers, and special events.

                  Every Thursday night during the summer, locals and guests round 'em up for the Wild, West Rodeo at the Gus Darien Riding Arena. All summer long music can be enjoyed in the outdoor venues featuring Sopris Music Fest, the Summer of Music Series and Mountain Fair. In addition, just 30 minutes away lie all of the many events and amenities of Aspen!

                  A plethora of outdoor activities wait at the doorstep. Bike the Rio Grande Trail, Prince Creek, Red Hill or head up to Independence Pass outside of Aspen. Fly fish the Gold Medal Frying Pan, Roaring Fork, Crystal, and Colorado rivers. Golf the River Valley Ranch course which lies along the banks of the Crystal River with Mt. Sopris as the breath taking back drop. Enjoy the endless hiking trails, white water rafting, hot springs, horseback riding, climbing, kayaking or spending time in the historic towns nearby.

                  The winter paradise provides as many activity choices as the other seasons. A 30 minute drive finds Ajax in Aspen, Aspen Highlands, Snowmass, Buttermilk or Sunlight ski/snowboard recreational areas. Snowshoe or cross country ski at Spring Creek.

                  Even though the list of activities in the area is endless, one of our top favorites is just hanging out and unplugging from the normal day to day hub-bub. This tranquil retreat has a way of doing that to even the most hyper!
