  • Welcomed with open arms!

    "The hotel I was originally booked increased my price when I was checking in, and was even rude : ( Therefore, not a pleasant experience, so needless to say, I was desperate for lodging at the very last minute. Someone told me about Terry Butler, at The Residence Hotel, and called her immediately. She gave me her very last suite at an incredible special price when she realized I was on a starving artist budget. As I walked up the stairs to the charming hotel, I was greeted with welcome arms, as well as a beautiful serenade by the fluffy house dog, Charlie. When I walked into my room, I was breathless! I didn't get just a room, I got a huge suite! The deco is Old World eclectic, and done with perfection! I could easily move in permanently. There is a warm, inviting, shared living room- lobby, where everyone becomes part of her family. I highly recommend The Residence Hotel to everyone! AND, I WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK!"

    "Location was great, beds were comfortable, check-in was a breeze. A great place to stay & will surely return next year. We loved the Sky hot tub. A short walk up the path. Best part was it was totally convenient to everything, yet quiet at night."

  • Aspen Mountain Rd Condo

    "We are a family of five coming to Aspen for the first time December 2014. This condo is situated one block from the Silver Queen Gondola of Aspen Mountain and one block from the town's grocery store. The unit was very clean, the kitchen is well stocked, it is quiet in this little neighborhood, and you are right in the middle of Aspen activities and sites. You do not need a car in Aspen, your lift ticket covers four mountains and the free shuttle system is excellent. We would not consider staying at another home or condo after experiencing the amenities and location of Ajax Mountain Condo. Responsive owners, they text back quickly, answer questions about keys and codes, you will not be disappointed."

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.
