  • Beautiful Condo in Excellent Location

    "My wife and I went to Aspen to see the Fall color and were not disappointed. This condo is perfect for two people and feels more spacious than it is due to the vaulted ceilings and the many clearstory windows throughout the main living area. There is a reserved parking spot just outside that was very convenient when we needed our car, which we mainly used to travel over the back roads outside of Aspen. While in town, we walked everywhere and our favorite restaurants (Cache Cache and Jimmy's) were only a two minute walk from the condo. The owner did a great job of checking in with us via text before we arrived and while we were there. The champagne and cheese plate was much appreciated as well. We have recommended this condo to our friends and relatives that love Aspen like we do, and I recommend it to anyone reading this 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."

  • 5 stars, yes, affordable Aspen Unit, but...

    "If you are looking for a relatively inexpensive, comfortable and convenient place to stay in Aspen, this location fits that bill. The unit was clean. Easy walking distance to Aspen town center, buses, and some ski lifts. Also, if you come to Aspen with a car, you get a parking pass and there is parking in front of the building, so no issue bringing a car. Kitchen is adequately stocked, plenty of towels (no wash clothes, which was odd). I loved the fact that the owner uses the payment gateway through Homeaway.com; reserving and paying were super simple. If you have used Homeaway.com or VRBO a few times, some owners are either not in the 21st century or make you jump through ridiculous hoops to reserve and pay. This place was super easy and that is appreciated. The bed is an innerspring mattress with a memory foam pillow top. It was comfortable and reasonably, but not overly, firm. Plenty of storage for clothes and your stuff. Bottom line, this property met my needs, met my expectations, and therefore I give it 5 stars. Some things to know: 1. This property is practically a basement. There is almost no natural light that comes into the unit. That gives your mind the "casino effect" in that you have no sense of the time of day when you are in the unit. Which makes the interior design scheme an odd choice. The unit is dark already and the interior design choices make it even darker. Objectively, I am glad they made the effort to make the place look nice (and it does); they really should have gone with lighter colors to help brighten the space. 2. Internet was okay, but spotty. It seems to be a central wifi that is shared with other units. On the last night of my stay, the internet gave out. 3. Might be time to replace the sectional sofa, it is showing its wear. 4. Lastly, size: The description does say it is 540 or so square feet; to put that in perspective, that is about the size of a one bedroom hotel suite. The unit is equivalent (ever so slightly larger) than a Residence Inn suite. Also, it has 1 bathroom which is not very big (1 sink vanity, toilet, and shower) Although the description says it "can" sleep 3, you wouldn't really want to have 3 or more people in the unit. Unfortunately, I can't recommend this property for a family. You CAN do it, you can get by if you have one kid, but not recommended. All in all, if you are by yourself, or a couple, looking to stay in Aspen, this property is a good choice."

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.
