About the Property

3 Bedroom, 3 Bath, Secluded with Stunning Mountain Views

This is a beautiful and comfortable mountain home with spectacular views, a massive redwood deck including a 4 person hot tub. This family friendly home has an amazing living room with large native rock functioning fireplace and formal dining room. The eat-in kitchen is fully equipped and recently remodeled. Mountain views from every window! Three bedrooms sleep a total of 9 along with bunk beds and a futon bed in the basement to accommodate 5 more. The basement includes a home theater with surround sound, washer/dryer and wood burning stove.
**** Please note that for those of you considering a wintertime stay, be advised that for your safety, you'll need a four-wheel or all-wheel drive vehicle. It is wise to have such a vehicle for wintertime Rocky Mountain travel in general and this is particularly true to safely navigate our plowed, mile-long road to our home!*****

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Married 34 years and now with 3 young adult sons and a lovely daughter-in-law, we've resided in this lovely mountain region for the past 14 years, formerly serving as Directors of Marble Retreat (www.marbleretreat.org), the lodge of which is located on the same property, 300' below the house. Writing a new chapter in our lives, Patti and I have returned to my first love of academia and, as a result we are now residing in the city of Grand Junction, CO and are wishing to share the peace, joy and beauty of our Marble home with others. As a hobby, Patti and I have remodeled much of the home with our own hands and continue to do so as time allows.

Why the Owner Chose Carbondale, CO, USA:
When one sees the home and the location, one readily understands why we are making it available to others as a vacation rental. The home is nicely appointed and cozy making it very comfortable for long afternoon naps or making a gourmet meal. The hot tub is a wonderful end to a long hike, day of fishing or cross country skiing. We believe the upper Crystal Valley is one loveliest in the state. Our home's remote and very private location, surrounded by towering peaks and pines, says it all!

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
It is a modern, up-to-date mountain home with most all the amenities, save for cell phone service and Internet!
