Property description

Walter’s No Name House is situated on the banks of No Name Creek, near the Colorado River where it flows through beautiful Glenwood Canyon. Nestled down by the creek, it is not even visible from the road.

From this lovely secluded spot you have access to year-round outdoor recreation options: hiking, fly fishing, cycling, rafting, swimming, skiing - downhill and cross-country - and snowshoeing. In Glenwood Springs the wonderful Hot Springs Pool, Vapor Caves Spa & Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park are open year-round. Field and Stream named Glenwood Springs the Best Fishing Town in America. In town and up the Roaring Fork Valley are a number of excellent restaurants.

The house at No Name has 3 levels. The main floor has living, kitchen and dining areas, master bedroom & bath. Upstairs is a sleeping loft with half bath. There is an interesting architectural feature which some call a meditation room attached by an outside walkway to the upstairs sleeping loft. Downstairs from the main level is a large 'dormitory' room with adjacent full bath, a small bedroom with a sink, microwave and refrigerator, and a laundry room. A covered porch runs along one side of the house and there's a large deck off the back of the main level that overlooks the creek.
Our place is an affordable lodging alternative for Rocky Mountain skiing and snow sports. Sunlight, the local ski area, is an easy 15 mile drive and has cross-country as well as downhill skiing. It is a small family-friendly ski resort featuring reasonable rates for lifts and lessons (e.g.: adult tickets are $50, compared to $90 - $95 in Aspen-Snowmass) and a beautiful view of Mt. Sopris.

Snowmass Village and the three Aspen Ski mountains are only 40-45 miles away, an easy drive on 4-lane Highway 82. Beaver Creek Ski Area is 50 miles east on IH 70. There are a number of good snowshoeing areas in and around Glenwood Springs. After a day of skiing, visit the Hot Springs pool for a soak, or the Vapor Caves to steam and/or have a massage.

In the warmer months, enjoy cycling, hiking, swimming and rafting, and Glenwood Caverns & Adventure Park which features an aerial tramway, cavern tours, and some amazing-looking 'thrill rides.' Glenwood Canyon Resort, which is just up the road a half mile from the house, rents bikes and offers raft trips, and there are a number of rafting services in town that do also.

We are surrounded by National Forest land with hiking trails for all levels. Just down the road from the house is a paved hike & bike trail that goes into town, an easy walk/ride. The same trail takes you east through the entire length of Glenwood Canyon on 13 miles of paved hike & bike trail.

Guests should be aware that there is an elevation drop from the road/garage down to the house and creek of about 20 - 25 feet, and access to the house from the garage is by two flights of outdoor stairs. In addition, the house has 3 interior levels connected by stairs. Our one-legged father was able to negotiate all of these and there are grab bars and railings throughout, but you should consider this if your travel plans include folks with mobility impairments, or who are frail.
