About Horace Newhard

My daughter, Persie Newhard Nakonechny, helps with rental communications.

I built the original house with my brother and friends in 1967. We were the first to receive a certificate of occupancy in the newly opened Snowmass Ski Resort. I continue to visit Snowmass frequently with family and friends.

The area is quite beautiful year round with world class sports, art and music activities ongoing. Events are suitable for a mix of ages and abilities.

Horace Newhard purchased this house in 2000

Why Horace Newhard chose Snowmass Village

I began skiing in Aspen with my brother in 1961, and had the opportunity to get in on the ground floor of Snowmass Ski Resort. My sister's children own a place nearby (the Snoke Chalet) and we created family vacations throughout the year to enjoy the area and each other's company.

Skiing conditions are unbelievably good, with splendid snow conditions and attention to grooming the hills throughout the ski season.

In addition to ski season, Snowmass Village is a lovely get-away for family and friends at all times of the year. Summer season is the time for the Aspen Music Festival, Balloon Festival, Vintage Car Race, and many other events in the area.

What makes this house unique

Ideal climate good skiing year around leisure. Excellent snow conditions are typical during the ski season. Off season offers many options for leisure, such as hiking, golfing, fishing, biking, fine dining, horseback riding, river rafting in summer, the beauty of seasonal changes, and a great place for family reunions.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I have been a enjoying all of the seasons in Aspen and Snowmass since the late 1960s and have stayed in several homes and condos in the area.

My absolute favorite is the Newhard Chalet in Melton Ranch, Snowmass.

The Newhard Chalet, with its expansive views of Owl Creek Road and the Snowmass Club, is modern, comfortable, and outfitted with all of the best amenities. The large kitchen, which is well equipped to handle large groups, and its adjoining dining area, with its two oversized tables and chairs, is the hub of the Chalet.

The entire first floor has soaring ceilings and windows.

There are bedrooms, each with cable TV and baths on all three floors.

The Chalet is within walking distance, via a bike trail on the cul-de-sac, to the City Market of Snowmass and Snowmass Village itself.

Another bonus is the Chalet's hot tub located directly outside of the 1st floor family room

Ideal space / large family: we aim to return!

  • 5 of 5

This great place is smart in design. Rustic and warm in feel. Multiple sleeping quarters and baths ideal for our large family group. Large windows and high ceilings makes for spaciousness. Close to Aspen. We saw multiple deer within feet of house on two occasions. Highly recommend Newhard Chalet!

PERFECT FOR A LARGE GROUP

  • 5 of 5

Stayed and played with a race team of 13. Everyone was very comfortable and the house was stocked with all necessities. Had one issue with the hot tub - cold when we arrived but we called the care taker and he came over immediately. The hot tub was ready in a few short hours by the time the team arrived. Could not be more pleased and we will be booking again! Heads up - No AC in home, only a few rooms had issues of being warm at night but it was manageable.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review Heather and glad that the hot tub situation was fixed quickly as I'm sure it was necessary for some sore muscle relief :-) Glad you and your group had a good time and we hope to have you back at the Newhard Chalet!

Nice house; great location

  • 5 of 5

The Newhard Chalet has lots of room (we slept 13), a great kitchen, and is centrally located near the base of the Snowmass lifts. Excellent bikeways in all directions. They have an onsite person to help with maintenance issues. Communication with the owners was excellent. Will use again if returning.
