Gorgeous views!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the "Escape Hatch." The views of the lake and mountains from the deck were divine. There was everything we needed and then some. We enjoyed having a fire in the fireplace both nights of our visit. We used the DVD player to watch two movies we brought from home. It was nice to have the use of the washer and dryer. I appreciate that Sean emailed me early on with concerns that Independence Pass could possibly be closed since we were coming later in October. (Thankfully, we were able to drive over the pass for a great day of hiking the Maroon Bells and visiting Aspen.) We didn't want to leave and are already talking about visiting again!

Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Views were magnificent, we had a wonderful time. One critique is they should provide some sort of garbage service for out of town guests (Even if it’s a additional charge). Requiring guests to take their own garbage when vehicles are already packed with luggage is a disappointment. With that, everything else was on point. Easy check in/out, easy communication with owners & excellent location. Great for outdoor enthusiasts

Great Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful setting overlooking Twin Lakes, the views were gorgeous.The home was comfortable, spacious, and well equipped. Sean was a gracious host and had good suggestions on things to do in the area. The home is conveniently located between Leadville and Buena Vista, and is not far from Aspen. Could not have been more pleased.

Comfortable house in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Setting is wonderful - very close to some amazing trails and the view from the deck and living room/dining room is perfect. Kitchen is well stocked with all we needed to cook meals and the appliances are good (especially liked the toaster oven). Couch and bed were very comfortable. Really couldn't ask for more. Sean did a great job making sure that we had everything we needed for a fun few days.

Amazing view with privacy

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a long weekend at this property at Twin Lakes. It is very peaceful and private with a wonderful view of lake and mountains. Sitting on the deck just soaking it all in was wonderful. Sean was very easy to work with and very responsive and the cabin was well stocked. It is 3 bedroom and 1 1/2 bath. We had six adults in our group. The bath situation worked out fine. One note, if adults will be staying in the bedroom with the bunk beds, it can be a little snug. We would definitely book again if we returned to Twin Lakes.

Beautiful house in twin lakes!

  • 5 of 5

The house in Twin Lakes was great. It was very spacious and had everything we needed. The patio was fantastic and provided beautiful views! We were there when the Aspen's were changing and Sean was nice enough to send over a picture of the great view before we arrived! We used the house as a base for hiking Mount Elbert which was perfect location wise. Also not too far from Leadville where there is much more going on in the bar/restaurant scene. Overall a great experience and Sean was a wonderful host!
