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.

We LOVED this beautiful house and property!

  • 5 of 5

We had an AMAZING weekend at this beautiful house and property! We stayed with our young adult kids (age 22) and they felt like kids again! They loved the backyard with the tree house, zip line, volley ball net, trampolines, and trout pond! The weather was perfect so we spent most of the time outdoors and had a blast! The house was beautiful as well and full of amenities....a sound system, games, ping pong! We just thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and the property! I would highly recommend it and would definitely come back again!

Great home, great location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and would definitely stay here again. Great central

location so everyone in the family had easy access to what they enjoy in the valley.

Excellent place for kids, they loved the trampoline, tree fort and basket of musical instruments/toys.

House is beautiful.Spacious while still somehow feeling cozy, we had a great few evenings cooking dinner in the kitchen and just hanging out.

Highly recommend.

Beautiful house in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 2 days while attending a wedding in Carbondale. The house was absolutely beautiful. The owner was a pleasure to work with, and everything was as described or better with plenty of amenities. The zip line, pond, tennis courts, volleyball courts, Sonos sound system, and everything else really made this a truly fantastic place to stay. We really couldn't have asked for anything better.

Relaxing and fun property for Colorado vacation

  • 5 of 5

The spring creek home is perfectly situated for a vacation in the Basalt area. The property boasts a beautiful lot, with a backyard that was designed with equal parts relaxation and fun in mind. The home is private, well maintained and still close to everything. The proximity to whole foods, nearby rivers and recreation made for an ideal home base for a vacation in the mountains for a group with varying pursuits each day. While close to Basalt, it is an easy drive to both Glenwood Springs and Aspen. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to return.

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.
