Perfect location for activities from Aspen to Glenwood on a stunning property.
This house has it all. Jaw dropping property on the banks of the Roaring Fork with incredible views up and down the valley, private access to over 2000ft of Gold Medal fly fishing on the Roaring Fork, perfectly situated in the mid valley for convenient access to everything our mountain paradise has to offer. This property is tranquil and meticulously maintained, a real jewel in the Colorado Rockies, ideal for all seasons with easy access to skiing, biking, boating, etc..
This 1100 square foot guesthouse provides privacy and has its own driveway and parking, upstairs bedroom, kitchen, bath and flat screen TV. Downstairs there is another flat screen TV, pool table, half bath, and pull out queen sofa bed. An outside deck has incredible views, and a grill is provided on the downstairs patio overlooking the river. You will delight in the alpenglow spreading across the mountains each evening, as you sit in your private hot tub overlooking the river, watching the mule deer and elk crossing down from Rock Bottom Ranch across the river, and the Duck, Geese, Herons, and Osprey flying past your windows.
A great place to bring your kids.
Some of the benefits of this rental include:
PRIVATE FISHING - September thru November is awesome. Green drakes, hoppers and all kinds of mayflies. Always hatches of PMD's and Blue Wing Olives on the Frying Pan River which is only 3 miles away. There is always good fishing year round. A private tributary of the Roaring Fork runs in front of the house and the river is about 100 yards away. The tributary averages 40 feet in width with 9 separate pools. Hundreds of catch and release trout. We are across from ACES Rock Bottom Ranch, a pristine nature conservancy with a path leading across the island in front of the house to the Roaring Fork River. We have an exclusive fishing easement which opens up an incredible amount of private fishing in both directions.
WINTER BENEFITS! Direct access to Highway 82, this road is the first cleared and ready for full operation first thing in the morning. It is about a 25 minute drive to skiing in Aspen, and great access to local Nordic trails and backcountry skiing. The south facing deck gets lots of glorious sun all winter.
The fishing is also excellent in the winter. One of the deepest holes on the Roaring Fork is located in front of the property. Go deep with small nymphs and a big brown will be the reward. It is easy to cross and wade both sides as the water is low and slower.
Aspen/Snowmass/Buttermilk/Highlands ski areas are an easy 25 minute drive up valley. Sunlight ski resort is 25 minutes down valley and Beaver Creek and Vail just an hour away.
BIKING - We are in the middle of the Roaring Fork Valley and just 1/2 mile from the 45 mile long bike path from Glenwood Springs to Aspen. There is easy access to all levels of biking close by. If you enjoy road biking, the Frying Pan River road outside of Basalt is one of the most scenic rides in the country. For mountain bikers, enjoy easy access to our incredible trail networks; Red Hill and Prince Creek in Carbondale, the extensive trail network in Aspen ( and the excellent lift served trails at Snowmass). With the new glassier and buckhorn extensions, you can access all of the mountain biking in prince creek and the crown with a two mile ride from the house!
GOLF - Four public courses within 10-30 minute drive; River Valley Ranch Golf Course, Iron Bridge, Aspen Municipal and Lakota.
CROWN MOUNTAIN PARK - Just up Valley Road, less than a mile, enjoy walking, biking, tennis, basketball, baseball, soccer, volleyball, horseshoes, and a dog park. Beautiful views and a lovely walk to the river.
ASPEN/BASALT/CARBONDALE - Music and art festivals, shopping and dining, museums and lots of local culture. Golf, hiking, biking, fishing, birding, horseback riding, site seeing--there's lots to do.
WILLITS SHOPPING - Just 1 mile up valley enjoy WHOLE FOODS, Starbucks, 9 upscale restaurants, a brewery, movie theaters, specialty food stores and bakery, grocery, apparel, kitchen and other shops. Carry out food is available, too.
HOT SPRINGS: the legendary and historic Glenwood hot springs as well as the new Iron Mountain Hot Springs are just down the road in Glenwood, as well as multiple undeveloped hot springs in the roaring fork and crystal river valleys.

Everything about this house was perfect...the view, river, kitchen, bed, hot tub, location, pool table! The house was very clean and well equipped with everything we needed. My daughter and I enjoyed staying here and the location from her lacrosse tournament was great. Nick and Patricia are great hosts. We can't wait to return. Thanks for an amazing experience!
Fantastic place to stay!
We greatly enjoyed the guest house! Clean, quiet and great location. We enjoyed the pool table, the hot tub, and the soothing sounds of the river! Don’t miss out on the stars at night, I haven’t seen the Milky Way in years! Only complaint is the bed is too soft...maybe ditch the egg rate foam? Thank you so much for giving us a great break from the city!
A tranquil setting so close to everything!
This is a very magical place. You can enjoy sitting out on the deck watching deer, mallards, herons, in the preserve across the Roaring Ford river. The home is well equipped and very nice. The location is close to everything in the valley, a very convenient and beautiful spot!
Awesome Riverfront Colorado Home
We had a great time during our spring ski trip staying with our pooch in this beautiful location! The amazing home is very well equipped with quality items and very comfortable! We opened our front door in the morning with deer one day and geese another! The river running next to the home sounded amazing too! The home owners are very nice and available to provide any information needed! Thank you Nick and Patricia!
A gem we'll return to for sure!
This place was fantastic. The layout is great, it was clean and had everything we needed/wanted. The location is excellent, City Market and Whole Foods 3 minutes down the street, plenty of places to eat and lots of mountain bike trails (we came out for the weekend to snow bike), a couple you can ride right from the house to.
The setting and views are absolutely amazing, with the sound of the roaring fork river outside your window. We can't wait to come back in the spring/summer to enjoy the warm weather and mountain biking. The place comes as advertised and we couldn't have been happier with it.
Thank you Nick and Patricia for sharing your guest house with us, Badger and Dexter (our 7lb and 10lb pups) were very comfortable here. We look forward to the spring/summer.
What an amazing encounter! We head out from Miami every single Christmas to take in a magnificent mountain experience, and have stayed in this superb home for the past five years or so. There was a sale since last year, and the new owners have made improvements that only enhanced our stay. They are a first-class family, and are always available to help, and will give you ample space to enjoy your vacation.
We are a four person family with two young adults in tow. The chemistry, and the amenities all blend together perfectly. For one, this is a two-story home, and affords multiple options for sleeping, working (reluctantly, we had to do some of this), cooking/eating, or just hanging out.
What you will surely soak in is the spectacular view of the mountains, especially being nestled adjacent to the Roaring Fork River. Absolutely beautiful! We venture into Carbondale, Basalt, Aspen, and ski the vast majority of the time on Snowmass. It simply couldn't work out any better.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write us such a lovely review. We really appreciate it, and are glad you enjoyed your stay. We are continuing to work through additional improvements, hopefully you can enjoy them when we see you next year!
