Our penthouse is located in the heart of Aspen in the historic Brand Building, which is rich in Aspen history, very private and an exclusive address. The Brand Building was built in 1891 and after a meticulous restoration it was featured in Architectural Digest.

Just 2 blocks from Gondola.

The Silver Echo (each unit is named after a local mine) will provide discerning guests with a private retreat incorporating all the finest of amenities. It's perfect for that special vacation or gathering. Throughout the condo the designer furnishings are accented by original artwork from the owners private collection. Numerous windows throughout the entire main living area affords fabulous Ajax (Aspen mountain) views. Watch skiers descend or hikers ascend Ajax from the gourmet kitchen as you enjoy your morning coffee while seated in the dining room or the living room. You have the best seat in the house!

The upstairs living room /loft features a gas fireplace and leads out onto your huge private rooftop deck. Your deck offers plenty of seating for a meal or a front row seat for Aspen fireworks. Perhaps you'll want to BBQ on your professional BBQ grill at your disposal. While you're here, enjoy the spectacular 360 degree panoramic views of the mountains and town.

The Silver Echo additionally offers two private suites with private baths. One master suite offers a king size bed, the other a queen. Each bedroom is uniquely appointed with vintage accessories. The large recently remodeled bathrooms, include separate sinks, over sized tubs and separate tile showers. To make your visit as comfortable as possible top of the line bedding including down comforters, Crabtree and Evelyn bath products and luxurious linens/down pillows will ensure a good nights sleep even after a hard day on the slopes.

The kitchen, has built-ins, a pantry, plenty of barware and cooking utensils. This is a gourmet chef's dream : Subzero refrigerator, Wolf range, granite slab counters and all the utensils you will need to create that special meal.

The winter offers world class skiing for all ability levels, free shuttles to Snowmass, Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk ski areas, world renowned shopping, gourmet dining, galleries, and a town rich in culture and history, all easily accessible due to your ideal location.

Summers are equally as enjoyable and beautiful when the activities include fly-fishing, river rafting, hiking, mountain biking, canoeing, many special festivals and more.

If you come to ski we are just 2 blocks from the Silver Queen Gondola which services Aspen mountain.

Down the stairs and out the front door you are surrounded by the finest restaurants, art galleries, coffee bars, bakeries, designer clothiers, the famous Caribou Club, movie theaters and lovely little shops filled with serendipity.

Dining with a view of Aspen Mountain

VRBO Bear stayed here

Jul 22, 2010

My friends and I couldn't wait for our weekend getaway in Aspen. This lovely condo, the Penthouse in the beautifully preserved historic Brand Building definitely exceeded our expectations. You will be equally impressed when you step into this elegant and tastefully decorated condo. The magnificent views will take your breath away as you gaze out the oversized windows soaking up the view of Aspen (Ajax) Mountain from virtually anywhere in this beautiful condo. The layout is unique, with comfortable beds and full bathrooms with sunken tubs (bear sized). The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need for dining in. It was a treat to barbeque from the rooftop, star gaze and listen to the live music playing on the streets below. With such a great location in the center of town, you won’t need the car. Our gracious owner gave us recommendations for a fun filled, yet relaxing weekend. Aspen itself is full of the charm and character you’ll want to experience for yourself. It’s an ideal place for an adventurous bear like myself, who loves the outdoors. You won't want to miss a walk or bike ride along the Roaring Fork River and see amazing views of the lush foliage and wildlife. While hiking is plentiful, if you aren't up for the climb, a scenic gondola ride is a favorite alternative. The streets of Aspen, lined with red brick and an array of beautiful trees, display historical buildings where you will find shops from eclectic to couture. Restaurants are plentiful here where Aspen is known for its world-class cuisine. You will also enjoy a diverse mix of entertainment on virtually every block, including music and art displays. While our summer vacation experience was superb, Aspen’s skiing and winter activities make it a wonderful year-round destination. We treasured our time in this lovely downtown Aspen condo and are sure that you will find the same. The VRBO Bear

Awesome view of NYE fireworks

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here through the New Years Eve holiday weekend, during which we enjoyed an unbeatable view of Aspen Mountain's fireworks display. We loved the convenience of this place -- it's just a short walk from the base, steps away from shopping and restaurants. The rooftop deck was the perfect spot for our 2-year-old to shovel snow and build snowmen. A couple of tips to manage some small negatives: If you drive or have a car, the long-term parking is a little far away. Also, if you have a small child, the place has a lot of stairs and some antiques that are not kid-friendly (which the owner kindly warned us about). We simply moved a couple things out of our son's reach and it worked out fine. We will definitely visit this place again.

Owner's Response: I'm happy you had a great stay and were able to enjoy the fireworks off your private rooftop deck! The penthouse is on the second floor of The Brand Building. It's a two story penthouse with about 10 more stairs to get to the loft and rooftop deck. I mention it's not child friendly on VRBO because of the stairs and rooftop deck. Adults love the floor plan because it gives everyone their space! Aspen parking is difficult and the city garage is a two block walk. I always recommend you unload/load in front of the building and the driver can take the car to the garage. There's no need for a car while staying in the penthouse which is located in the center of town. Everything you need is within a 2-3 block radius!

Fabulous stay above Gucci dont have to walk far to shop..

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided to go to Aspen for our 10 year anniversary and found this lovely Penthouse above all the shopping in town. It was easy to walk to all the restaurants and shopping. The home was clean and very well cared for. Right in the heart of Aspen without feeling all closed in. You wont go wrong on renting this great home on vrbo. The owner was so sweet as to tell us of great shopping and restaurants. She was very helpful..

Absolutely perfect experience.

  • 5 of 5

I with some friends decided to make a long weekend in Aspen and choose this wonderful residence. Everything from the booking of the residence to the location was perfect. It is minutes from all the restaurants and is with out a doubt a great find in the heart of Aspen. We grilled outside and just took in the magnificent views of Aspen Mtn. and watched the sun rise and set from the great deck. Please consider this residence for your stay.
