Aspen wood ceilings, clear dug fir floors, plush furniture, a sprawling open kitchen with tons of counter space, classic decor, a deep cast iron tub and 21' cathedral ceilings were some of the reasons why this home was featured in The Aspen Sojourner magazine mid winter 2008 edition under 'In style, off the Grid.'

13,000 foot mountains surround, offering 360' views of rugged alpine scenery. In floor radiant heat is a feature offering comfort in the cold of winter along with a wood burning stove. Perched on a promontory you can look down 1000 feet to the river, water fall and lake and up 4000 feet to surrounding peaks and cliffs.
Although all types of activities are always beckoning we find we don't want to leave the house as being home affords the opportunity to observe in comfort and luxury, after any number of mini-adventures. Hawks, falcons, elk, deer and fox are commonly seen from the house. Rainbows, dramatic thunder storms, blue bird sunny days from this vantage point are common. The view out every window is a masterpiece. The cabin is in a very sunny south facing location; offering ample sunlight in the winter, great fall color viewing in the fall.
