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 Basalt

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.

Majestic,Clean, very comfortable and convenient to local amenities : a beautiful well-kept place.

  • 5 of 5

Although we were there for a ski week with marginal conditions, we found lots of other things to do and had great week with lots of laughs and great memories. One could immediately tell this was not an ordinary “rent house”, but a home , with all the comforts and on property things you could imagine: ping-pong in the garage, a zip-line and trampoline in back, a hockey rink out front, and an open concept, very complete kitchen, dining, living area all in one. The views out front are wonderful.

Doug is not just the owner, but a very available overseer. He gave us his cell phone # and was always available, but it was rarely necessary to contact him , as the instructions about day to day living there were quite clear in his instruction bulletin in the kitchen. Our extended family of 10 was very comfortable. Thanks for a great week!

A Lovely property...a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The property is located in a quaint and peaceful community. The house is warm and inviting. It was the perfect choice for our family gathering. We spent the majority of our time at the home cooking and enjoying the many amenities. My personal favorite was the steam room in the master bath. My kids enjoyed the ping pong table in the garage and the zip line in the back yard. The owner is very accommodating and a pleasure to do business with. Thank you Doug for a wonderful experience

Best house and property!

  • 5 of 5

This house and property was so fabulous! It had all the amenities you could need, even the little things like laundry detergent and kitchen condiments. Drawers were packed with things you might need, games and toys. The garage and outside had almost every kind of recreational item you can think of - way too many to get to them all. The entire property was so beautiful - it was the perfect place to observe the Feast of Tabernacles, which foreshadows the millineal reign of Christ. And Doug's hospitality was amazing, making sure everything was great for us! Thank you!!

Fun family house!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property for our party of 6 adults and especially for the 2 kids, ages 5 and 1. The house is well located in a very quiet, private, beautiful setting, near shops at El Jebel, and within a short drive to Aspen. For a big house, it was very cozy, and spotless, too! We've stayed in several properties similar to this and this one stood out, especially because of the very well stocked kitchen and incredible backyard...great for the kids (and adults) with the trampolines, badminton, tree house, zip line, and great furnished sitting areas. Our favorite spot was the eating nook off the kitchen--warm and inviting, and perfect for kids' card games. Kudos to Doug the owner who was very responsive to my many emails. Highly recommend this property.

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.
