Why Susan Burns or John Neiman chose Aspen

We have just completed two years of renovation on this wonderful old, stone house that sits on a hill in McClain Flats, overlooking the whole ski valley and the Roaring

Fork River. On 5 beautiful, rolling acres, we hope to

someday build a barn, a larger main house, and bring

our icelandic horses here!

What makes this chateau / country house unique

When you are sitting out on the pergola or patio, you feel

like you are perched on a hilltop town somewhere in Tuscany! There are two patios, one in front of the house

facing beautiful estate properties on the hill, and another

in the back, with sweeping view of the whole ski valley!

A chic, contemporary statement; perfect for romantic

martinis-with-a-view... and entertaining...and away from the hustle and bustle of town. Also with hot tub overlooking sweeping vistas.. and waterfall! There is

also a professional, outdoor wood-burning pizza oven and barbecue grill for the cooking enthusiasts!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an amazing time! The house was absolutely perfect! Beyond our expectations. Great energy here. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We hope to stay again soon!

The house has everything you need and it's in the perfect location, just outside of Aspen, but at the same time very close to Snowmass, Buttermilk and Highlands. The setup is great, perfect for a single person or a couple. Big gourmet kitchen, great outdoor area with pizza oven and hot tub, views as far as the eye can see. The owners are very thoughtful and easy to communicate with. Highly recommended!

I lived in Casa Piedras for over 5 months. It was such a happy time for me and a wonderful experience. Susan and John were the most fantastic landlords...and met every need or wish or desire I had. This is a very unique place...unique in that you can be so comfortable and cozy with one ot two people....and oh so comfortable. But you also entertain so effortlessly..with the gourmet kitchen and pizza oven and is so cozy and inviting. I would HIGHLY recommend this is a special. Feel free to contact me for any further information.

Little slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time booking with VRBO and our first time going to Colorado .We spent 14 hours driving from Dallas to Colorado for a relaxing week with our pup . When we arrived we were thrilled with the location , house and all the amenities.

We didn't want to be in town but also didn't want to be in the middle of nowhere , so the house was perfect . There are few properties around you, that, whilst you cant see them I always find it reassuring to know they are there. The view from the patio is beautiful with a gorgeous snowy peak directly in front of you . We sat and had breakfast most mornings looking at this view , it was a little chilly but was well worth it , we were wrapped up .

The kitchen in the house has every utensil, pot and pan that you could ask for . My husband is a keen cook so he was thrilled . I came back with atleast 3lbs of vacation weight !! I would highly recommend making lots of pizza dough early on , the pizza oven is SENSATIONAL. The house is cosy at night time with the fire lit and the bed is very comfy .

There are loads of walks close by and aspen is about 3-4 minutes drive . City market is good for some essentials and Meat and Cheese is great for cheese and amazing steaks and deli meats.

We cant wait to come back next time . As most people have mentioned , Susan and John were great . Gave us loads of info before we arrived and answered any questions we had . The house is so tasteful and modern and Susans photography is beautiful .

Anyone who gets to this property will thoroughly enjoy themselves .

Serenity Just Outside of Aspen

  • 5 of 5

We rented this small home for the month of August and it was perfect for the two of us. Some of the highlight features of the home include the gourmet kitchen, steam master bath, 5+ private acres for space and privacy, wood fire oven, expansive view of the private jets coming and going framed by the rocky mountains, and five star linens throughout the home.

The owners went above and beyond and even had a welcome gift for us upon arrival.

We would definitely book again!

Our Vacation at the Casa De Pietro

  • 5 of 5

Jennifer and I have stayed during Christmas and New Years and enjoyed this home an ammeneties immensely! Pizza oven, outside jacuzzi, river fountain stream, steam bath, gourmet kitchen and a nice comfortable patio over looking Aspen and Buttermilk Mountains. We rented again for 30 days 2015 summer and absolutely love this home and location. The home is nested on top of McClain Flats with views of the mountains etc. The privacy is wonderful along with all of the amenities makes this house superior to others that we have reviewed. The owners are super nice and accommodating. I give it 5 Stars!!

Perfect house for 2!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for the 2 of us and our 2 dogs. Although it is a small space it is incredibly well laid out and we never felt like we were on top of each other for the entire month we were there. There are great hiking trails close by and our dogs loved the 3 minute drive to Rio Grande where they could play in the river. The pizza oven outdoors was wonderful- so much fun to have friends over for pizza. The location couldn't be better as you are just outside of town where you don't have to deal with the traffic of downtown Aspen as you can take the back road into town. A few minutes down the road takes you to Basalt which has great restaurants, Whole Foods & shopping. And the tempurpedic bed ( which was just like our bed at home) was the icing on the cake. The owners were extremely nice and highly attentive to our needs. I definitely recommend staying here. The view from the back patio is stunning, especially during a lightening storm. As it is across from the airport there is airport noise but we dealt with it just like all the neighbors with their 20 millions dollar homes do. Thats the neighborhood you are in.
