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!!!!!

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.

Magical Mountain Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with a group of friends. WOW! It is heaven. We saw photos but the reality was even more spectacular. Each room is more inviting than the next. We stayed in the guest cottage and it felt so special. The views, the details, the comfy quilts. The house itself accommodates a large group so well. We all cooked great meals together in a very well appointed kitchen. Played games in the living room. Danced on the deck. Laughed in the jacuzzi. Watched the most incredible sunsets. Not to mention biking, fly fishing, hiking, and swimming. A wonderful, magical place to vacation. We will be back!

Bike and hike fun!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I hosted seven couples, all friends, and all from all over the U.S and a few from Argentina. The main house, combined with the two smaller cottages, provided the perfect amount of space and privacy allowing us to spread out and enjoy our down time. We spent several days riding road bikes right from the ranch. There are some great rides down valley on roads with very little traffic. A few times we road to Basalt and then to Reudi Reservoir and back to Basalt where we enjoyed lunch at a few of the great restaurants. The kitchen is spacious and well equipped, which was perfect for group dinner assignments. We ate in the dining room only on one occasion because the rear deck has beautiful views of the lake and mountains beyond and the evening weather was quite pleasant.

We travel all over the world with this great group of friends and we all agreed that this trip to Snowmass Valley Ranch was one of our better trips and certainly had the best accommodations. We plan on returning in 2014!
