The house has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, and sleeps 9 comfortably.
As you are considering a mountain vacation, we invite you to consider our vacation home in Snowmass, which is located up the mountainside and across from the Snowmass Country Club, a mile from ski lift parking for the Snowmass Ski runs, with shuttle bus access or village pick-up by reservation, and a fifteen minute drive into Aspen, with its legendary skiing and wide range of restaurants.
Our home has three bedrooms and, with three full baths, it provides all of the amenities of home. Its deck overlooks the vast Brush Creek Valley and the Snowmass Country Club. In the distance, you view the length of Owl Creek Valley, even past Aspen Mountain.
The master bedroom is on the upper level of the house, where you will also find the kitchen, family living and dining room, and a deck overlooking the adjacent valleys. The lower level includes 2 bedrooms (one of which is a large, family-style room), 2 baths, and utility room with full-sized washer and dryer.
Amenities include a large family room, with oversized wood burning fireplace, where it's easy eo enjoy the aroma of pinion wood as the flames glow, a kitchen that is fully equipped for entertaining, all linens supplied, and a parking permit provided to allow easy access into Snowmass Village.
This is a NON-SMOKING home, and NO PETS are allowed.
35 inches of snow the weekend before we arrived made the skiing one of the best we had experienced. It was our first trip to the Aspen/Snowmass area and we wanted to ski all of the area resorts, so instead of finding the usual “ski-in ski-out” condo, we looked for a local ski house for our base.
I was attracted to the house by the photos on the website, and by the price. I contacted the owner and was impressed with how friendly and helpful he was. Based on the correspondence we decided to book the house for the week.
Everything was perfect. The house was everything the photos show it to be. The location was great – in a quiet hillside neighborhood with a wonderful view of the valley and mountains. Two of our mornings the sky was clear so we had beautiful sunrises (most of the windows of the house face east, so you can’t miss the sunrises). It is barely a 2 mile drive to the Snowmass village, and about an 8 mile drive to the Aspen area resorts, so the drive was short. There is a bus stop at the bottom of the hill which would be a bit of a walk, but do-able. The owner provided a parking permit for the Snowmass Village parking area which was very nice.
The kitchen was just like home, and well apportioned. If you like to cook you will find every gadget, measuring device, bowl, pot, pan, knife (about 30 knives sticking out of 2 wooden knife holders), turners, whiskers, that you could possibly want. The pantry was much better stocked than we have experienced at any of the condos we have rented – check to see what’s there before making the shopping trip.
The house and bedrooms have a roomy and comfortable feel. The water heater in the laundry room is the biggest I have ever seen – there was plenty of water for each of us to have a nice hot shower after a day of skiing. And the electric blanket on each bed was a very nice touch.
The house has wireless internet, and none of us had any trouble with phone reception.
I had thought this trip to the Aspen area would be a once only trip but I loved the skiing (particularly the Highlands) and the ski house was fantastic, so now a return trip is definitely a possibility.
My family tries to escape the Oklahoma heat for a week every summer by going to the mountains. This house was a wonderful place to relax and enjoy our week away. The deck was a great place for our morning coffee or an evening glass of wine. With the mountains in our view and the hummingbirds hovering nearby, how could it get any better? Maybe by seeing the most brilliant rainbow ever or the brightest stars! The owners are generous with their knowledge of the area and with their hospitality. The pictures are accurate and the kitchen is well stocked. We did most of our meals at the house. Aspen is a short drive away, but we preferred the quiet of Snowmass! The boys in the group climbed 14ers while the girls did short hikes and shopping. There's something for everyone. Thank you Bill!
Ten of us, in 3 generations of the family, all from the eastern slope of Colo.,spent 5 superb days skiing, snowshoeing, eating, watching basketball tournament games, playing games, and thoroughly enjoying this get-away home. Everything was "as advertised". The owner was very helpful in answering questions about the home beforehand, and the local contact (part of the owner family) called to see if all was well after we had settled in. I (we) would enthusiastically recommend this property to any group similar to ours. I hope we can do a repeat performance next year!
