Beautiful view but a very tired home and over priced
The home has an excellent view of Aspen! However, is tired, aged and over priced. The pictures on line present a different picture than reality. The property management company does the best they can to make up for the issues and were helpful! Would never stay here again!
Views, location fantastic. Structure old and not well kept up.
The location is perfect- 5 mins from slopes.
The property was on sale for $4.8M but anyone who buys would be paying for location and would need to put in $1M for updates
For a renter, there were no instructions for the use of any of the homes AV equipment or anything else- including when to take out trash or how to deal with dirty towels, etc. There was no obvious exhaust for the stove, resulting in a lot of "smoke" which the smoke detectors did not pick up- assuming they were working. There were a number of outside doors which could not be locked. It was not obvios that the garage could be used and even then someone's car was already parked inside.
The open design allows any conversation or other noise to be heard from every single floor.
A lot better on website than in person
Thanks for the review and bringing these things to our attention!
We will look into the stove, and getting some instructions laid out around the house for guests. All doors do lock. I am sorry if you were having trouble with them. We are around 24/7 and wish you would have called to make your stay better.
Great Retreat for a large group
The house is great for accommodating a large group. We used every inch with 13 of us in town for a family wedding! The kitchen is updated, so it was great to cook and hang out in- plenty of dishes and glassware for a large group. The house is definitely "dated", but comfortable and a good value for Aspen for a large group. The view is spectacular and the deck was a great place to hang-out. There is no Air conditioning, so the upper levels were quite warm during the daytime. We did utilize the Aspen Dial a Ride, which was very handy for getting into town for $1/person. All in all a good stay and good value. There is a caretaker that lives on the property in a separate unit (that was a surprise for us).
Thank you so much for staying with us during your family wedding! The Mountain Valley Retreat home is one of my favorite properties. AC is a rarity in Aspen due to the cool, Colorado, summer nights and the age of most of the buildings and homes. We do provide fans for your comfort.
We disclose there is a full time caretakers unit associated with the home in all of our listings. At times it may become lost in the description. Thank you so much for the lovely review. All of you were wonderful guests!
The location and view is stunning!
While there are a few components of the house that are a little dated (master bedroom shower head, brown carpet everywhere) the layout of the house was perfect for our weekend wedding reception. The company was wonderful to work with and met every need, even checking in to be sure everything is going well. Would absolutely recommend this house for groups!
spacious and comfortable house, with amazing views and convenient location. Lots of stairs since the house is multilevel (4 total) but that comes with having a house on the side of the mountain.
Comfortable Large House with Amazing Views
Our large family group really enjoyed our stay in the house. The only downsides were that there were no coffee filters or laundry detergent which I didn't think was very generous for a group that was staying for a long weekend. Also, the ventilation for the summer wasn't great in the large living room--it would've been nice to have been able to open a few more windows. Finally the only way to park in the driveway was to back the car down a steep narrow slope--I was white-knuckling it every time my husband parked our car. There was a convenient, "easier" parking space, but it was taken up the entire weekend by a car and a motorcycle not associated with anyone from our group. We have no idea who was parking their vehicles in this parking space! We found this odd.
