  • Wonderful location

    "This beautifully decorated town home is perfectly situated up the hill from Rubey Park for easy transportation, yet far enough from any busy street to make for a lovely quiet setting. It has magnificent travertine bathrooms with a beautiful kitchen with walnut flooring on the man floor. All furnishings are top quality. The owners are wonderful as well!"

  • Perfect Home, Perfect Location

    "We came to Aspen over Labor Day with our kids who are in their mid 20's and other friends for the Motherlode Volleyball Tournament, hiking, biking and pure relaxation. This home offered everything and more than we were expecting. As it states it is only 5 blocks from the City Market and yet so peaceful and secluded from the bustle of the city. The sound of the river and the privacy of the homes setting make you love Aspen all the more. The owner could not have been more accommodating, making sure we had everything needed for a great vacation. We will definitely try to stay here again."

  • Great location, amenities, and service!

    "Beautiful condo with great access to all the downtown bars and restaurants. Ideally suited for a medium sized group looking for a great ski-in, ski-out location while still providing proximity to downtown Aspen. Ian was a terrific host and provided some excellent recommendations for me and my group."

  • Great Property - Secluded yet accessible to everything

    "We were looking to get away from the Dallas summer heat and relax in a secluded mountain setting. We found everything we were looking for, and much more, in this property. If you're looking for a comfortable, unpretentious, casual vacation rental property, that feels like a place you might have built for yourself, then this is the place for you. When we first walked in, we went straight to the deck and took in the view, not to mention the sound of the water rushing down the river just a few hundred yards from the house. Our, almost daily routine, was hiking down Hunter Creek Trail, ( 2 minutes from the front door), through a well marked series of trails, all the way to downtown, where we would meet up for lunch with others in our party, then would drive the 7 or 8 minutes back to the house. Then either go fly fishing, white water rafting, golfing........or just driving up to the Maroon Bells, looking for Moose, Bear, Elk, Deer, Fox, etc. We actually had a fox that hung out around the house that we would run into from time to time, as well as deer in the yard and an occasional bald eagle soaring overhead. Even though the house was fairly close to other houses, we still felt very secluded with the dense foliage surrounding the house. The house was very comfortable for the 4 of us, my wife and I in one room, and our son and daughter, each with their own rooms with separate bathrooms. The kitchen is well equipped, however we tend to eat out a lot. If we decide to visit Aspen again, we would definitely like to stay here. The owner was very responsive and helpful. I would recommend to anyone."

Aspen Travel Tips

Aspen is a premier Colorado ski town and popular destination during the winter months, although it is still pleasurable during the summer. Located just 11 miles west of the Continental Divide, Aspen was founded as a mining camp during the Colorado Silver Boom.

Aspen Attractions

Head to Maroon Bells where you can see the most photographed mountains in North America. There is a public bus from mid-June until Labor Day. The only way to access this location during the winter is by skiing or taking a snowmobile. You can also capture breathtaking views of Maroon Bells from the Aspen Highlands. Hike the 12,392 feet to the top using any one of the 122 trails or take the Deep Temerity lift to the summit.

Independence Pass is the halfway point between Aspen and Twin Lakes. There is a scenic overlook near the pass where visitors can see over the tree line and catch a glimpse of Mount Elbert, the highest peak in Colorado and second-highest mountain in the U.S.

Aspen Mountain is famous for its black-diamond terrain. The location was opened to the public in 1947 and offers skiers and snowboarders an experience unlike any other with a variety of glades, bumps and steeps. There are fantastic views and food at Sundeck on the mountain's summit and Ajax Tavern at its base. Enjoy fresh tracks on the backside of the mountain through the Aspen Mountain Powder Tours. Take on 64 miles of terrain with access to 76 trails. Head to the top of the mountain on one of eight lifts.

Smuggler Mine is at the northern edge of the city and the oldest operating silver mine in the Aspen mining district. The largest silver nugget ever mined came from Smuggler Mine and weighed in at more than one ton. During the mine's peak, it produced almost one-fifth of the world's silver output thanks to an extensive tunnel system that traveled more than 1,000 feet below the city of Aspen.

During the summer, visitors can go rafting down the Roaring Fork, Eagle or Colorado rivers and hike up the Elk Mountains for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Biking on Snowmass Mountain allows you to explore more than 50 miles of trails. Try the paintball course on Snowmass Mountain and ride the Elk Camp and Silver Queen gondolas up Snowmass. Fishing in the Roaring Fork and Frying Pan rivers is popular during the summer, as is spending the day in Glenwood Springs and Glenwood Canyon. Visit the historic ghost town of Ashcroft, learn more about its history and see the few buildings that still remain. For those who prefer to stay close to Aspen, rent a cruiser bike and go for a ride around town.
