About Bob and Hillery
We love Colorado and are outdoor enthusiasts and enjoy hiking, biking, skiing, fly fishing and horseback riding. Glenwood Springs is the perfect location for enjoying all of these activities. We love animals and currently have two dogs and two horses. Hillery is a Colorado native and we have lived in Glenwood for 26 years. We have many good tips if you are new to this area and would be happy to share.
Bob and Hillery purchased this Barn in 2003
Why Bob and Hillery chose Glenwood Springs
This property is not far from the city of Glenwood, but we enjoy that it feels like it. We love the stunning views, privacy and mountain setting. Glenwood has many special attractions that are easily accessible, as well as being in close proximity to many beautiful neighboring communities such as Carbondale, Marble, Red Stone, Basalt, Aspen and Vail; none of which are too far.
What makes this Barn unique
We enjoyed using our interests for creating a very special and comfortable space that you would never really expect to find in a barn.

So hard to get any better!
Man, what to say other than this place forever left a mark on our hearts. We are looking at dates and hoping Hillery & Bob will allow us back soon.
The barn is beyond perfect. They did such an amazing job with every single detail.
We had an opportunity to meet Hillery in person, which we hoped to have seeing we are considering moving to the area and were curious about their perspective on some local factors. However, I could see how the weekend easily could have passed entirely without running into them. So if having absolute solitude is important to you - don’t fear about that, they are incredibly respectful of privacy. It’s easy enough to keep to go without interruption.
The fridge was stocked with water, orange juice and cream for coffee. Everything was really clean and there were necessities like hair dryer etc in case you forget your own.
The only tip I would recommend is if you’re allergy prone, don’t forget your Zyrtec. There is a portable air conditioning unit in the barn, but with the vaulted ceilings it does have the potential to get warm so it can be necessary to open the windows overnight.
We were staying during an abnormally warm weekend for September with temps in the mid to high 90’s. It was still comfortable despite my typical preference for super cold temps when I sleep. There was an extra fan in the closet that helped circulate the air from the unit. Honestly everything about the experience was so perfect and unique - you literally can not find anything this idyllic in glenwood - that I wouldn’t bat an eye at a *much* hotter environment.
I have chronic pain and always worry about the bed situation. The mattress in the barn was more comfortable than I expected. The linens were comfy and adequate for potentially fluctuating mountain temps. I usually have to travel with a egg crate or something, but I managed just fine without.
The horses, Ellie & Pilot are super sweet and very funny. They both have fun personalities. We loved feeding them their treats each day. Feeding the fish in the pond was fun too.
Hillery gave us the ok to use their paddle board in the pond and we had soooo much fun. Zero regrets spending the day in the cool water with the fish and the incredible views. My husband said “it is better than heaven” and I totally agree!
I truly hope we will be welcome and able to return soon!
THANK YOU AGAIN HILLERY AND BOB FOR SHARING YOUR SLICE OF HEAVEN WITH US! We feel so blessed to have had the chance!
Beautiful views and a great atmosphere to relax in
Couldn’t have asked for a better stay. Upon arrival it was clear that they thought of every way to make your stay enjoyable and comfortable. Loved it.
We really enjoyed our relaxing stay in the beautiful red barn. The views are amazing! This place is clean and comfortable and Hillery pays special attention to detail. We loved giving treats to Pilot and Ellie. They are so sweet and beautiful. Bob and Hillery are the perfect host. We will definitely be back.
Thank you Jennifer! It was great having you and Adam and hope we do get to see you both again!
The barn was absolutely breathtaking the Decor was beautiful the view from the big window in the morning while drinking coffee was perfect. Even though it’s a little farther out of Glenwood Springs it is so worth the peace and quiet to escape the city.
Great relaxing place to stay
We really enjoyed our stay in the red barn. Very conformable for a two people. Views are great and only 15 minutes from Glenwood Springs. Would definitely stay again if in the area. No issues at all.
Thank you! Glad it all worked out with the train and getting around. Hope you'll return!
Guys. Stop looking and immediately book this place!!!! We go to Colorado at least once a year, trying to experience different places, and this was BY FAR the best we have ever stayed at!! Pictures don't do it justice at all. Bob and Hillery are the kindest, sweetest hosts. They are there to help you with anything you need, especially things to do and see in the area. The barn is perfection, every single detail of the apartment has been well thought out, its incredibly clean and organized, and stocked with everything you need to make your stay easy and enjoyable. Ellie and Pilot are the sweetest horses, getting to feed them treats and love on them everyday was such a highlight!! The pond is so clear and beautiful, and what a bonus to get to paddleboard with their awesome dog, Nelson!! Feeding the fish is so fun too! Honestly, the landscape is SO BEAUTIFUL you will find yourself never wanting to leave. Our last night there, it was super clear outside, so we went to look at the stars....it was as if we were in a planetarium!! I highly suggest downloading a good star gazing app, it was super fun to point it up and see all the constellations! We were able to see several planets and, I'm pretty sure, every single star in the universe! There is a super cute little private front porch area, with a couple comfy chairs, where we watched the sun come up over the mountains every morning over breakfast and coffee. It is such a peaceful, beautiful place. We really cannot recommend it enough!!!! Though this place is a little outside of town, it is super easy to get to, and the road is very nice and paved on the way up. We recommend the Vapor Caves at the spa. We only went because it was raining all morning and we couldn't hike, SUPER COOL. I cant say enough good things about our stay here. I wouldn't say Glenwood Springs was our favorite Colorado town, but Bob and Hillery's oasis had us 100% coming back. If we could, we would move right in!! <3
Our property is only 15 minutes to town where you can enjoy Glenwood Hot Springs and Iron Mountain Hot Springs, many good restaurants and lots of good hiking and biking trails. The Rio Grande Trail connects many towns along Hwy 82 including Carbondale, Basalt, Snowmass and ending in Aspen for a total of approximately 41 miles one way. Another fun attraction is the Glenwood Adventure Park which has many outdoor rides, music, activities and cave tours. There is lots to see and do, but you may prefer to just relax and enjoy the scenery from the barn.
