About Paul Rankin

Hello from the Rankin's we would like to invite you to our home in Snowmass Village when we aren't enjoying it ourselves. Fortunately for me my father made his first trip to Snowmass in 1971 with me in tow and I have skied there ever since. I have had fun introducing my wife and kids to the mountain over the last 15 years and thankfully they love to ski. Over the years we have had many trips with many different guests and we would like to think that we have the perfect house in the perfect location. After a year of painting, redecorating and general updates the house has never been better. I hope you get a chance to experience what I think is one of the best ski vacations in the world!

Paul Rankin purchased this house in 1983

Why Paul Rankin chose Northwest

The perfect ski mountain for all levels of skiers and the perfect location.

What makes this house unique

The absolute best benefit of our house is the proximity to the ski area. Its just across the street and when there is snow on the road you can ski right to the front door!

Very good but needs some maintanance/improvements

  • 4 of 5

Highlights/Best Features:

Great common space, bedrooms all with private bathrooms, ping pong table, and washer-dryer all appreciated greatly.

Hot tub was a definite highlight for all.

Location to slopes for ski in/ski out - excellent, but needs better identification for how to enter and exit from slopes (need signage).

Key code entry convenient as family members were coming and going at different times.

Urgent maintenance request - good response.

Response to questions for owner/property manager excellent.

Daily snow removal was prompt, and needed even with large SUV.

Constructive Criticisms/Recommendations for Improvement:

Uneven heating of home - rooms were cold on the bottom floor, with bedrooms hot on first/ground floor.

All bedrooms need humidifiers - only one was present in the entire house.

Slider to the deck/hot tub was extremely hard, almost impossible to open.

Rugs under kitchen table and entry hallway need rubber mats to prevent slip hazard, as one family member had a minor fall.

Kitchen needs more silverware, dinner plates need replacement.

Master bathroom tub has a front/side panel that kept falling over.

Water leak from apartment shower or roof identified, dripping into basement/lower level hallway on floor below - required maintenance call.

Wonderful house for LARGE families

  • 4 of 5

Our large family from Georgia wanted to spend Christmas in the snow together. In order to wake up all together on Christmas morning, we needed a LARGE place with at least 6 bedrooms and extra sleeping areas on couches for all three generations. The Rankin home was perfect in size, space, kitchen layout and location on the mountain.

Erickson Home Services provided us with a live tree strewn with lights, our grocery list stocked in the pantry, and decorations shipped from home tucked under the tree ready for us to celebrate our special holiday. The entire family easily fit in the living room on Christmas morning, tree and all. Watching the grandkids slide down the snow bank into the back yard was so fun to watch.

The ski out was simple. Now, the ski back to the house was a little trickier, but doable. Figuring out where to cut in between the houses took a few tries. When we needed 'dial-a-ride' for kid transportation to ski school, or rides after the lifts closed, we never had a problem.

The hot tub was a fabulous end to each day of skiing. You can''t get better views of the snow and mountains than from a steamy hot tub right outside your kitchen door. The heater was powerful and maintained 101 degrees even when the cover was completely off. The various jet configurations came in very handy. Finding a ping-pong table in the lower level thrilled the grandkids! Playing on it kept them occupied while meals were prepared. The board games were used after dinner and we really appreciated having a family assortment to choose from.

The only disappointment was that in the master bath tub, the jets did not work. Credit goes to Erickson for offering to come and get the jets working, but since working jets did not prevent giving grandkids their baths, we opted not to insist on fixing the problem at Christmas. Minor mechanical problem that did not take away from our magical holiday.

We spent a year planning a Christmas holiday of a lifetime, and were not disappointed! Thank you, Paul Rankin (home owner) and Deb Erickson (home service), for a White Christmas that the Hodges family will never forget!

A dream stay in Snowmass

  • 5 of 5

The house in Snowmass Village is absolutely beautiful! It is well situated high in the mountains, among the Aspen trees, with the deer roaming in the back yard. It is only a few minutes from the village mall and supermarket. We had a large family gathering of 16 people. The house is roomy, very well equipped, with all that one needs. Convenient to cook and grill for a large group. We enjoyed the Jacuzzi on the porch after long days of activities. The owner and property management company were most helpful and prompt in solving every problem that came up - and not many did! Our only comment is that some of the mattresses are very soft, and not conducive to healthy rest, especially for those of us with some minor back issues.

We highly recommend this home for a beautiful vacation!

Second time staying in this house and it was great again. Very convenient, comfortable and plenty of room. The owner and property manager are very easy to deal with and very accommodating. We'll be back again.

Great Snowmass Retreat!!

  • 5 of 5

I help coordinate a yearly ski trip with eight neighborhood guys and our most recent trip took us to Snowmass. This house was perfect for our group. It comfortably slept 8/9 guys. We spent most of our time in the spacious family room with a roaring fire! The Wi-Fi, DVD and Satellite TV provide additional entertainment. The ski-out is incredibly easy to find, maybe 75 feet out the driveway to the left (you can ski down if the road has snow on it). The ski in is a little tricky, but after you get the hang of it, it's delightful. Take the West Fork run, and take a path between the two big house across the street from this home, and you ski into the driveway. Great grocery market was located about 8-10 minutes at the base of mountain, and village was a few minutes more. ASE and Aspen Village about 20min depending on road conditions. We cooked in the kitchen and grilled outside. Everything you need is available in the kitchen. Hot Tub at the end of a long day on the slopes was nice too. I would highly recommend this to folks looking for the convenience of ski in/out at Snowmass. I think we may have just found a home for our future group trips. The owners were very fast in responding to any inquiry and a pleasure to deal with.

Was Perfect!

  • 4 of 5

This house accommodated our big family and nobody felt cramped. Plenty of room to spread out and yet all be together in one place. It might be a little dated but clean and welcoming. Highly recommend this home.
