This is a life-long dream of mine to build a cabin in one of the prettiest places in Colorado!
Marble is a very historic town located 60 miles from Aspen in the Crystal River Valley. It is a beautiful 1 hour and 15 minute drive from Aspen to the cabin in the summer but you will need a 4WD vehicle and it's good to have chains in the winter.
It is a place that offers backcountry skiing, fishing, hiking, biking, kayaking, canoeing, etc. and the best panoramic mountain views Colorado has to offer!
I own a fly fishing guide service in Aspen and have brought many of my clients to my cabin over the years.
Most people really enjoy the quiet nature of of the valley and how relaxing it is to spend time in the mountains.There is a hiking trail, Carbonate Creek trail at the bottom of the driveway that takes you up a beautiful valley full of wildflowers and fabulous views.
If you have a 4WD vehichle you can go up Lead King Basin and take the Geneva Lake trail to a beautiful lake. I have two canoes at Beaver Lake which is 2.5 miles from the cabin and it offers some great fishing. There is a nice restaurant in Marble called the Slow Groovin Cafe which is open in the summer. You can also visit the artsy, historic town of Redstone which has some nice art galleries and a few restaurants. Carbondale is a 30 mile drive from the cabin and offers some fine dining and shopping. I suggest shopping for food at Whole Foods which is 10 minutes from Carbondale in El Jebel.
There is not a bad season to visit although the winter adds another component which requires a 4WD vehicle and a person who knows how to use a wood burning stove as it is the only source of heat for the cabin.
My wife owns Bonnie's Restaurant and is a private chef.
We often take our fishing/ horse back riding guests to the cabin and she will prepare meals for the outing.
My permit in the White River National Forest allows me to take clients to some high lakes where we do overnight camping trips.
My favorite is Geneva Lake which is a one hour four-wheel drive ride from the cabin along with a hour hike to the lake.
It is fabulous in the summer for people who enjoy hiking for the scenery and looking for wildlife and the flowers are incredible!

The cabin is fairly rural and remote and is off the grid meaning it runs on a solar and generator chargable battery bank. The water is from the well and is delicious. The generator, stove, oven, water heater and fridge and freezer all are fueled by propane. The heat is suppled by a wood stove upstairs and a wood pellet stove downstairs. Winter renters need to be able to start and maintain a fire.
I prefer a cashiers check for 50% prior to arrival and the other 50% upon arrival
