  • Great Place to Stay with Local Information and Connections

    "The condo was very nice and made for a comfortable stay. The owners were very helpful by providing information about the area (e.g. restaurants and activties) and contacts in town which helped us plan our overall trip and setup our fishing trips. The owners were also very accessible during our stay and checked in to see how things were going and if we had any questions. You can't beat the location given all the activities (e.g. hiking, fishing, exploring the nearby towns, etc.)."

  • Excellent and very comfortable mountain home that comes with a residential Bull-Moose

    "We spent a week hiking the local trails around Breckenridge and down towards Aspen via Rt 91 and 24. Tom and Kris' mountain house is very comfortable, well furnished, relatively remote (trees on both sides provides some privacy from the neighbors), and fully equipped for our work-vacation stay. Bonus was the hot tub which was a perfect way to relax after a full day of hiking from 9,000 feet to 13,000 feet for 4 to 6 hours. Couple of items for future guests to note: (1) The house is located at 9,800 feet. So, plan for a couple of 3 to 4 days to adjust to that altitude for sleeping, walking, and exercise. Drink plenty of water! (2) The days are warm and the nights are cool in August....the master bath on the first floor doesn't get a lot of heat....so, prep your feet for a chilly tiled floor on your wake-up visit to the bathroom. (3) The road to the house is mostly dirt from both directions....in the summer, a regular 2-wheel drive vehicle is all that is needed.....but, in the snow months, I highly recommend a 4-wheel drive vehicle. (4) The wifi is excellent and fast. Both of us had work to do, and good wifi and cell services are a must for our vacations. (5) The commute from Denver International Airport (DIA) is roughly 2-hours if traffic is flowing. Caution....if you arrive at DIA and travel on Friday afternoon, be prepared for a long trip to Breckenridge and any other place heading west on I-70 as many folks from Denver head to the mountains for the weekend. Same situation applies if you're returning to DIA on a Sunday. And, (6) a big thank you to Tom and Kris for an effortless rental and providing such a wonderful house to stay. I use VRBO to find all my vacation rentals both for personal and my ski and scuba dive groups. Tom and Kris' house information on VRBO is very accurate, except Tom needs to include a note about the residential Bull-Moose that likes to have a sunny nap in the backyard. The Moose showed up twice during our stay....around 3pm and left around 6pm.....wandering in from the side of the house with the hot tub, down the back hill feeding, then coming up the hill on the other side of the house to settled down for a nap in the sun. Pretty cool and I took some awesome pictures without having to disturb or make him anxious about our presence."

  • Wonderful weekend

    "The owner has recently remodeled and the additions make it even better of a place then it was before. We have stayed in the unit 3 times now and greatly appreciate how well kept it is . The new floors and countertops look great. This unit is perfect for our growing family to use, everyone has their own space. The view is one of a kind. Thanks for making our trip wonderful as you always do."

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.
