House, the views, the charm... they didn't miss a beat!
We will be back for sure.
Beautiful house, good location. Great for extended families. Excellent service contact with owners/management. Very close to Aspen airport. Well furnished/stocked. Very close to ski areas, snowmobiling . 30 minutes from Glenwood Springs/caverns. Lots to do for skiers and non-skiers.

I hate to give too glowing a review as the ranch will stay booked all the time, and may not be available the next time I want to book it! But, my family absolutely loved every minute at the Ranch!!! It was perfect for our needs and close to friends and activities we wanted to be near. My grandchildren had plenty of room to run and play. We loved being outside and all the beautiful views. The kitchen is great, and we had some wonderful dinners around the big dining room table. I could not have been more pleased. The owners were very easy to work with and made sure that all our needs were met. We had a great time!!!!!
HEAVEN ON EARTH
We very recently spent 8 glorious days at this exquisite Ranch in late spring 2013 for a family ski vacation. It was one of our BEST vacations ever and we would love to come back!. First point: Location! Location! Location!. This ranch is easily accessible to Snowmass Mountain and Aspen Mountain, both of which are only about a 10 or 15 minute easy car ride. The ranch location is also convenient to shopping (groceries or just fun browsing) as well as good restaurants in the nearby town of Basalt, which is only about a 5 minute drive if you don't wish to drive the extra few miles to Aspen. We especially loved the ranch location because it provided all the virtues of absolute PRIVACY and STUNNING views of meadows, mountains, valleys, streams, and wild life - while being very convenient to the ski areas.
Second Point: Gorgeous and Immaculate Home! The original historic ranch house has been beautifully and lovingly restored and expanded by the owners who added large picture windows and outdoor decks looking both east to enjoy the sunrises and west to enjoy the sunsets as you soak in the hot tub or enjoy a glass of wine on the deck as you watch the wildlife. We watched at herds of elk cross the valley at dusk and watched blue jays in the morning. The interior of the ranch has been tastefully restored and modernized with all the conveniences and amenities you could want. Despite its large size, the ranch was warm and cozy at all times, and I believe all of the bathrooms and mudroom have radiant heat so that one is toasty even in bare feet. The huge kitchen is well equipped with everything you could want and need to throw a dinner party for 20, or just as easily for a couple. We typically enjoyed breakfast at the kitchen island's granite counter and enjoyed dinner by candlelight in the dining room sitting at the long farmer's table overlooking the valley and mountains. There is also wood paneled games room, with a large pool table and other kid "magnets" where kids tend to gather and entertain themselves while the adults enjoy conversation at the fieldstone fireplace in the grand living room with cathedral ceilings. Bedrooms are upstairs and ALL have beautiful views.
This home and location is Paradise. The Ranch Owners are very responsive to any of your questions and needs. Being locals, they can make excellent recommendations to improve your stay and were very helpful to us. We look forward to our next visit to Snowmass Valley Ranch!
My husband and I have been fortunate enough to have spent time at "the Ranch" winter and summer! It's a beautifully peaceful place to while away the time. Plenty to do for everyone involved! Wildlife is abundant. Watch the elk and other fauna on the foothills from the deck, spectacular animals to see! Short jaunt to Aspen and Basalt is just around the corner. Wether it's winter or summer the surrounding mountain views are breathtaking with the lake/creek an added bonus! Take your family to hike, bike, see a rodeo, dine, swim or fish? Adult ski/hiking vacations are perfect or take the kids with another family to enjoy winter or summer fun! Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk, Snowmass and Aspen Mountain, something for everyone. Try it, We think you'd make it an annual trip!

My wife and I have spent several weeks with our family & friends, both in winter & summer, at The Ranch. The property, accommodations, location, & amenities are truly first-class. Winter proximity to skiing at Ajax, Snowmass & Highlands, as well as the cross-country trails, makes the Ranch an ideal home base--quiet, serene, & relaxing. Summers are equally great, with the on-property lake, hiking & biking trails, and easy access to Aspen for the summer concerts. We have had as many as 12 people at the Ranch and never felt crowded; it really is spacious and inviting. The kitchen and deck make for easy cooking & BBQ grilling on top of the line appliances. A fabulous location for a vacation. We will be back many times.
Property is located 12 miles outside of Aspen, CO. Majestic mountain views, hiking, biking, hot air ballooning, white water rafting, golf, tennis, fitness and fishing in the summer months. Skiing, snow Boarding, Cross Country Skiing, Snowmobiling, Snow Shoeing and Ice Skating during the winter time. The famous Glenwood Hot Springs is just 45 minutes away. World class restaurants, spa and fitness facilities a short drive away.
