- This is a wonderful getaway for the gathering of family and friends. The house manages large groups very well, with good spaces to gather together, and many places to find some peace and quiet. The inside is comfortable and well equiped; the outside areas are really great and the property is magical with moutains all around, yet you're only minutes from town. ...moreless

Beautiful Red Mountain is just across the valley, the Book Cliff Mountains are off to the west, I call them the Sunset Mountains, Mount Sopris can be seen from some rooms year round, and from more of the property in the winter months. The property is a heavily treed lot with a mix of pinions, cedar, and shade trees, sitting right into the hillside. We are also within walking to a nice local 9 hole golf course that many locals favor, visible when the trees are bare. ...moreless

Year Purchased: 1994
About the owner: I first came to Colorado in 1964, as a kid, to ski with my family and this place has been in my heart ever since. I've lived here most of the time since 1978, and when I leave, it always calls me back. My two wonderful kids are grown and mostly gone and my dogs and I have been spending more and more time in another state of late. I love having people in the house when I'm here and when I'm not and someone suggested I try this to give others an opportunity to appreciate the magic of this place. People who visit often comment on how relaxing and rejuvinating The Property is, so I thought I'd share some of that.
Why the Owner Chose Glenwood Springs, CO, USA:
I designed and built this house back in 1994 with the intent of providing some place comfortable and special to raise my kids, nestled in the trees. Besides being our home, I wanted a place where my friends and my family were comfortable visiting with us for a week or weeks at a time, so it was important to have enough spaces to gather or to have some quieter time alone, and this house does that well.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house is within an hour of the world class resorts of Aspen and Vail, moments from the local golf course up on the hill, and minutes from the famous Hot Springs Pool and downtown Glenwood Springs. It is about two miles to the pool or downtown. Sunlight Mountain Resort is 30 minutes away and is a great family ski area or place to make fresh tracks all day long on a powder day. There are bike trails that can be caught at the bottom of our hill which connect us to Aspen and to Vail, or invite a ride along the river or up to The Village Smithy in Carbondale for breakfast. We have kayaking, rafting, Gold Medal Fishing waters, hiking, music, some great restaurants for families or a special night out, snow shoeing, and so much more, or you can choose to simply stay in and enjoy the comforts of this home with its fabulous views and the secluded, heavily treed property on the hill.
