House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
This 1/2 duplex which sits on the Roaring Fork River enjoys the best location in Aspen with easy walking access to downtown shopping and dining (2 blocks), 5 blocks from the Gondola (and a free shuttle that stops every 15 minutes right outside the front door), and 1 block from the local's favorite Smugglers Mountain hiking trail.
It is 2 minutes from Aspen mountain. A free bus passes the house three times per hour that will drop you off at the base of the mountain. Restaurant's are a 4 minute walk or one minute car/bus ride. We are a few blocks from the urban core but right on the river. 5 miles to ASE airport.
The house features 2 master suites, each having its own deck over looking the river with beautiful Ajax mountain views. The 2 other bedroom have a combined 6 beds. There is also a great room (which includes the kitchen, living, and dining room spaces) which opens up to a 3rd deck with a dining table and BBQ on the river with great mountain views.
We have enjoyed many years with our children and our friends in this well-loved comfortable home returning to a lovely dinner on the deck after hiking or biking or listening to music or lectures during the summer days and many cozy nights by the fireplace after great winter ski days. We always say that our deck is the nicest restaurant in town....sipping a drink while surround by magnificent views and the lull of the roaring river.

Why Doug Brown chose Aspen
It's breathtaking views of the mountain and the river. The ability to enjoy and maintain an outdoor lifestyle and it's unique location which provides convenience without sacrificing privacy. It's the best of all worlds!
What makes this House unique
We're only 5 blocks from the gondola and a brief trip (under 5 miles) to ASE Airport. With beautiful river views, this location is breathtaking in both summer or winter.

Perfect house in a perfect location
Of the bat, I knew the home would be wonderful just by speaking with Doug. He was easy to work with and transparent.
As for the house, it was perfect. I stayed with a group of 6 guys for a ski-trip and the home catered to us easily. It has everything you need and incredible deck with afternoon sun, view of Ajax, and overlooking the Roaring Fork River. Only wish I had more days on that deck.
I look forward to bringing my family back next year!

Our group rented this home for our annual ski trip. Doug was great to work with and the home is in a great location - we could walk to town and the ski shuttle literally stops outside the front door. Would definitely rent the home again.
Great Aspen spot!
Doug was very professional and the process from check in to check out was smooth. Very flexible check in and check out times which was much appreciated. The place was fantastic with beautiful views of the river and a very close walk to downtown. I would recommend this place and the owner to anyone looking to rent in Aspen.
Great stay! Would definitely go again and recommend to others
Very great stay. Doug was extremely responsive and flexible with our plans. Location is very close to town and makes it easy to get around.
Great Ski Holiday
We just returned from a week at The Brown's place. The house easily accommodated our two families of five with the two bunk bed rooms and the two master bedrooms. Wifi was good which was important as our kids are all in their teens. The house is extremely well situated. It is a short 5-10 minute walk into town to shops and restaurant or to the grocery store. We were steps from the bus stop for the free bus to the transit centre that then links you to free buses that can take you to Buttermilk, Highlands or Snowmass. You can walk or take the bus to the ski hill in Aspen. It was our first time to Aspen and the skiing was fantastic. The house is very well maintained and equipped. There were plenty of towels for our large party. We took advantage of the large washer and dryer to do laundry mid-week. Doug was very responsive and easy to work with. We would definitely stay here again.
House was great. Perfect location
We stayed here for a friends 30th birthday. Nine of us fit comfortably in the space. The house was close to all the shops and restaurants downtown but also tucked away nicely in a quiet neighborhood. Would definitely stay here again for a weekend getaway in Aspen!
Aspen Food and WIne, Aspen Jazz Fest, Aspen Institute, Belly Up Concert Venue, Aspen Santa Fe Ballet, Aspen Music Festival, X Games, great kids summer camps, Opera or dining at the best Aspen location - our own deck overlooking the river.
