About Doug

I am a Colorado native and my family and I have made the Aspen valley home for 23 years. My wife and three girls love where we live and embrace the mountain lifestyle we have chosen with enthusiasm. Hopefully we can share our wonderful home with you for brief time.

Doug purchased this house in 2006

Why Doug chose Northwest

Our home is just that - a home - very comfortable - inviting and enjoyable.

What makes this house unique

Small town living for big city people is how we describe where we live. It is a wonderful place to visit with all the amenities of an urban existence with fresh Rocky Mountain air, crystal clear rivers, incredible hiking, biking, skiing and culture right out the front door.

Spring Creek Home Near Aspen And Walking Distance to Whole Foods in Basalt
average rating of 5.0 based on 21 reviews

Everything you want, everything you need

  • 5 of 5

Stay in El Jebel and enjoy everything the Roaring Fork Valley offers. Thirty minutes from Aspen, twenty to Snowmass, five either way to Carbondale and Basalt allows easy access to the best restaurants, outdoor activity, shopping and entertainment. But the real appeal is the property itself.

You will enjoy the ample grounds with plenty of sports equipment for everyone in the family; kick back and cook and grill your meals on premises; get your groceries from either City Market or Whole Foods within walking distance. Doug ensures your comfort and is available to answer any questions. Everything is provided. If you are devoted to the Little Nell, Ritz or Jerome venues, do yourself a favor and expand your horizons and enjoy this property instead. Give up your room service and raid the refrigerator!

This home is stunning, and we cannot wait to go back! It was the perfect place of respite for a large family group. We had 6 adults and two toddlers, and the home is spacious, well laid out, and warm.

The area is incredible, and we hated to leave. The owners were most helpful, incredibly friendly, and have a lovely home to share.

They were most generous with recreational items, so if you are headed up and considering bringing something, ask ahead... likely they have it.

The setting is just serene, bring a book or two and enjoy the front porch and backyard. An oasis!!!

My husband and his brother (both in their 30's) acted like children in the backyard... zipline, soccer, trampoline. Fun!!!

Fabulous, comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

This home is even more wonderful than advertised! Let's start with the incredible backyard, which is everyone's childhood dream: pond, treehouse, trampoline, slides and a zip line to boot. We loved cooking meals in the gorgeous kitchen, with everyone gathered around the island and sharing snacks. Can we talk about the huge steam shower in the master bathroom? I'd come back just to take a shower again. Just stay here already, it's amazing.

Beautiful property, very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Basalt and this home. The owners (and I assume others who have stayed) here make it feel like you're at home by leaving many of the random essentials (like ziplock bags) in the kitchen for use. The property and neighborhood is sprawling, a lot of green space for kids to play or dogs to play. Its a very quiet area where if you're wanting to sit out and read a book and drink wine in this beautiful yard, you're removed from distractions. I cannot say enough great things about this property. We'll definitely stay again. This is a real gem.

Immaculate Luxury!

  • 5 of 5

The moment we walked into this home, we were greeted with heated concrete floors and a sprawling main floor kitchen, dining room and family room. The home's windows made this house so inviting. The windows also made for great 360 views of the property. All top-of-the-line appliances in the kitchen made cooking tons of fun as well. The bedrooms upstairs were generous in size and everyone who stayed with us was comfortable! It is a short walk to the Whole Foods and strip center with grocery, bakery, liquor, etc. If we ever make it up to Basalt again, we'll be sure to hit up Doug to stay here. He was super responsive and made us feel at home. Thanks for a great stay!

Beautiful, comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable large house with beautiful furnishings. You will feel at home--good kitchen gear, nice silverware and china, comfortable bedding, etc. Shopping and a few restaurants nearby. We were in the area for a wedding and had 7 of us in the house for 5 days very comfortably. We had a great time skiing at Snowmass and hiking in the local area.

Car: recommended

Located 200 yards from the Roaring Fork River, on a spring creek with Whole Foods one mile away and the Resorts of Aspen/Snowmass just a 20 minute drive - this gem of a location offers immediate hiking trail access, world class fly-fishing, skiing and culture. Historic Basalt and Willits Town Center offer a plethora of fine dining establishments. The movie theatre and bowling alley, along with Whole Foods Market and City Market are all walking distance from this home. There is not better jumping off point to explore the Colorado Rockies or simply hang out and enjoy a good read.
