Fantastic views; every possible thing was provided
This was my 2nd visit to this property, once in June and once in March for spring break skiing. This place is fantastic. The owner has taken great care to make sure that EVERYTHING that you could need is there - down to the fact that there is already a tub of laundry detergent and fabric softener in the laundry room, hand soaps, dish soap, shampoos conditioners - all there for you. The huge and open kitchen/great room/dining room were awesome for watching March Madness basketball games.
The view of snow-capped Sopris Mountain every morning as we ate breakfast at the over-sized table were wonderful. Jumping in the perfectly-maintained hot tub after a day on the slopes was sooo relaxing. The pic makes the hot tub look like it's farther away than it really is - it's 8 only steps from the master bedroom.
Before we arrived, the owner gave us a great rundown of all of the best restaurants in the area via email (Smoke - BBQ was the best), along with where to grab groceries and ski gear on the way in. The guy who helped us at the ski rental place said that Sopris Mtn. is the most perfectly-shaped mountain on the planet. We agree. It's not a matter of if we will return to this property, just a matter of when. On the way to the airport, the kids were already asking when we can go back. Summer or winter, if you want to experience the mountains, you will love this place!
Driveway is impossible to get up in winter
Very disappointed with this house, management, and false-advertising, and would not recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the winter. Upon arrival, we quickly found out that the quarter mile long to half mile long driveway was a sheet of ice and our vehicle with four-wheel drive and chains would not make it up. We had to haul all of our luggage, gear, and food 15 minutes each way up a steep, icy driveway just to get into the house or back to your car. The road is clearly not maintained in the winter and the owners never bother to salt or sand the road, so be prepared to walk every time you arrive and depart the house.
As we were sliding down the driveway into the snowbank on our first attempt to get up the windy road, a plow from the property management company showed up, a good two hours after our designated check in time. The plow told us that we weren't going to be able to make it up the drive and that most cars couldn't. He then began to plow the recently fallen snow, only to expose a think layer of sheer ice, making it harder to find traction while walking. Needless to say, I think everyone from our party of 10 slipped and fell at least once. The plow got about halfway up the drive and then left, never to return the rest of the weekend, despite the continual snow.
Once we finally got to the house, we walked in to find unclean bathrooms and a bag of trash by the door. The maids had not been to the house despite the fact that we arrived 2 hours past check-in. After about 20 minutes, the maids actually did show up, their car not able to make it up the drive either, and they picked up the trash but cleaned none of the dirty bathrooms.
The second night we were there, a group of people had rented out the guest house, and could also not get up the driveway in either of their two vehicles. There is no parking at the bottom of the driveway as it icily leads into a busy road, so 5 vehicles between the two locations parked at the bottom of a road was nearly impossible. It was also very unsafe if any emergency vehicles needed to come up as we blocked the entire driveway. This was necessary because you couldn't park in front of each other as the road was too icy to even get that far and even if you could, you'd slide into the car parked behind you. The group staying at the guest house knocked on our door and seemed pissed as they couldn't get up the driveway either and there was no key or code left for them to get into the house with.
Of course, this review is the first I am hearing about any of these issues presented by the renter and I regret that they did not reach out to me during their stay as all of our guests will attest to our responsiveness to any of their needs. Yes, it does snow in our valley, of course that is why everyone comes to Ski. It has been an unusually good Snow season this year and most are very pleased about that. We do have a plow service and as much as we try to keep the driveway plowed, freezing is unfortunately part of nature that we cannot control. The renters were competitive Nordic Skiers from Colorado thus I certainly would have hoped they would understand this better. Had I known there was an issue, I certainly would have had it addressed immediately. As you can see from our other reviews, we do keep the house clean, our cleaning service has been the same service for 10 years now and Cecilia who runs the service would have personally attended to any needs the renters had 24/7, if the renter would have just reach out as the agreement has all our phone numbers and so does the book at the house. The renters in the Guest House called me in the presence of these renters and missed their instructions where the key was and one quick phone call to me corrected this immediately! There was no issue from them. I do regret their experience but now knowing about this does not allow me any opportunity to address the issues and make their stay more comfortable.
We had a wonderful time at this home in Carbondale. It is an amazing property with awesome breathtaking views. Snow was awesome and the kids had a great time sledding and making snowmen. Since we were there in the winter and it was snowing, we had some difficulty getting up the drive, it cannot be done unless you have snow tires or chains - so just be aware. The owners were very easy to work with and always prompt in their responses to any inquiry.
Hidden Gem in the Carbondale area
This is an amazing property, the house is beautiful and fully equipped with amenities. The view is breathtaking that it looks like a painting. This property definitely elevated our experience in Colorado during our vacations and we can't wait to come back soon!
Great For Our Family
Our family stayed here and at the guest house for 5 days. There were 9 adults and 6 children ages 2,4,4,5,6,8. We had a great time and enjoyed the house. Each adult family had their own bedroom. The property was clean and well maintained. The owner was very helpful and prompt in answering our many questions.
The house is about 10 minutes from Carbondale, where we enjoyed the 4th of July parade. The Maroon Bells near Aspen were great fun and we saw the now famous Bull Moose (2 of them) near the falls just up from Maroon Lake. Of course, the pool at Glenwood Springs was a great hit for the whole family. We also did a jeep trip from Marble to Crystal and the Mill on the Crystal River was really fun to visit.
We enjoyed the kitchen at the house and ate all of our meals there. The pictures are accurate, although they do not do justice to the incredible view of Mt. Sopris.
Thanks for a great vacation!
PS- We rode the Amtrack train up to Glenwood from Denver. It was TERRIBLE! It took 10 hours to get from Denver to Glenwood. Don't do the train!!!!
Amazing - We are coming back!
The pictures do not justify the beauty of this place. It is an amazing place to relax and get away from the busy city life.
Our original plans were were changed at the last minute and the owners of this place were more than happy to help us achieve our relaxing time. They were easy to work with and very helpful with all of the questions we had.
The place is on reasonable distance Gleenwood Colorado.
The kitchen, the bathrooms, the bedrooms, the whole house is an outstanding place to relax.
