Property description

Who needs a car? Right across the river from dowtown Gws. Bike rentals, kayaking, rafting all a block away. Gws Adventure park 2 blocks, hot spring pool 2 blocks. Train station right across the pedestrian bridge; approx 3 blocks away. Jump in the river practically out the front door! Bike path runs for miles! Bring your flyrod; lets go fishing! My house is on a very quiet street but so close to town you can walk everywhere. There are lots of fun things to do near by. The house itself lends itself to comfort and has a 'laid back' vibe. The house is ideal for a family of 4 or two couples traveling together. Master bedroom has king size bed and quest room has a queen size bed.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: I am a 'chatty cathy'. I love to talk to people and most especially meet new people. The older I get the more creative I am getting hence my little 'beach cottage without the beach'. It is a happy house; full of color! I love animals especially dogs. I am a water baby so I love living near the river. I love the ocean and absolutely LOVE going whale watching in Maui. One of the most awe inspiring experiences ever!! Mi Casa es tu casa! Bienvenidos Amigos!!

Why the Owner Chose Glenwood Springs, CO, USA:
This house is the definition of comfortable! I like to be comfortable so of course I think everyone else does too! The house has a 'laid back' vibe and is filled with happy colors and things that I love. I hope you do too!!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house is within walking distance to everything wonderful Glenwood has to offer. You are 2 blocks from the River; just across the pedestrian bridge from downtown where you can shop and eat at all the wonderful restaurants. One block over you can rent bikes, kayaks or book a rafting trip. To the west 2 blocks is the Gws Adventure park where you can take the gondola up the mountain and go caving or ride the rides or just enjoy the view and have lunch or dinner! You don't need a car to go anywhere!
