About the property

The perfect retreat for 2 (or 3) to unwind, connect with nature, and relax!

We are delighted to share our beautiful mountain retreat where we host wonderful guests in our separate studio addition. This space is the perfect place to unplug and unwind located just 10 minutes outside of Carbondale. Our home is perfectly situated to tour Glenwood Springs, Carbondale, Basalt, and Aspen; and just far enough away from the bustle of the city. Soak in the hot tub while gazing at the stars, cook meals in your full kitchen with eggs from our organically-fed hens, go for a hike just outside your studio doorstep, or read a book on your own private patio – you’re in the perfect place to enjoy it all!

Our garden-level studio apartment is bright, clean, quiet, and comfortable. We have been hosting for over 2-years now, and have perfected the art of hosting by thinking of everything you could need. The studio is a completely separate attached unit of our house - we live upstairs. The studio has a new queen size bed, a sleeping/sitting nook, a full kitchen (minus microwave), a bathroom with shower & hand-poured concrete tub, and its own private covered porch & entrance. It is quite comfortable for two people, but can sleep three if your third guest doesn't mind being extra cozy in the sleeping nook! Let us know if you need the nook made into a bed - the dimensions are ~6 ft long and 2.5ft wide. Our 3 acre mini-farm is an active environment that includes 13 chickens and an organic garden; you may hear or bump into us in the front yard tending the garden, feeding the animals, or coming home from work during the weekdays! We welcome you to enjoy our hot tub during your stay - stargazing while soaking is one of our favorite pastimes. One benefit of being slightly out of town is the almost complete lack of light pollution - the sheer number of stars you can see is breathtaking! We stock the studio kitchen with fresh eggs from our hens, butter, coffee and tea, organic half and half, sugar, olive oil, salt, and pepper. In the bathroom you'll find plenty of fresh, clean towels, shampoo and conditioner, soap, and various other toiletries and first aid items. We know how harmful artificial fragrance is for you and the environment, so everything in our studio is scented and cleaned using unscented detergent and pure essential oils. You will also find suggestions of places to eat, things to do, and places to go during your visit - and we're always happy to lend suggestions during your stay!

We allow up to two well-behaved pets to accompany you during your stay - we do ask for a $20 additional cleaning fee. Please see our pet rules so we can continue hosting your furry friends!

About Brittany and Michael Hailey

We are Airbnb Superhosts with a passion for nature and travel! We have a unique story of how we came to rent our peaceful mountain retreat.

We rented the space for a weekend in June 2015 and fell in love with the house and the charming town of Carbondale! After finding a beautiful sustainable ranch nearby to get married on, Michael was offered a job in town, and we packed up our lives in Denver and moved right after our wedding – Carbondale is just too gorgeous to pass up. We became friends with the original owners of the rental and, soon after moving, bought it from them! The original owners, Dawn & Adam, were rental superstars, and made our stay absolutely perfect. They always told us they were going to sell the house to go live on a sailboat and travel the world – so when their dream became a reality, we bought their house. Because Dawn & Adam created such a peaceful, beautiful weekend experience for so many people, we knew we had to pay it forward and continue hosting guests in the lovely studio apartment.

We are an eclectic couple who spent most of our pre-marriage days living abroad in New Zealand and South East Asia! Our mutual love of travel made us quit our day jobs in America and buy one way tickets to the southern-most part of the world soon after we met. We lived in New Zealand for 1 year, then Southeast Asia for 6 months before returning to Colorado to get married and start our lives in the best city in the world: Carbondale. We enjoy everything outdoors and are a very active couple here in the valley. We love meeting new people and love hosting wonderful individuals.
