Beautiful home...away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at this beautiful home and we can't say enough about it. It is immaculately clean, and is very warm and inviting. The location is perfect -- a two block walk to Main Street Carbondale. We can't wait to come back.

Beautiful home with all the amenities in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay with no problems whatsoever. The house is top-notch with a well-stocked kitchen and a great backyard, and the location could not be better. We didn't get a chance to meet the host, because we had no issues and therefore no reason to call. Would love to stay in this house again sometime.

This is our second stay in Marti and Chuck's home in Carbondale. We feel very comfortable here as the kitchen is fully stocked with cooking equipment and dishes, the beds are comfortable and the hot tub is a big plus when muscles are sore. No negatives at all!!!

Exceeded our expectations!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay at the Residence over the holidays. The Bauer home completely exceeded our expectations. It's evident that Chuck and Marti take great pride in making sure their guests are comfortable. One of our favorite things about their home was the kitchen. One of the main reasons we choose vacation rentals over hotels when we travel is because we like to cook our meals at home. The Bauer kitchen is stocked with all the of the cooking necessities plus extras! We also really enjoyed the town of Carbondale and the surrounding area. It is a very easy drive to both Aspen and Glenwood Springs. We would highly recommend the Residence to anyone. We hope to return to the Residence sometime during the summer to enjoy the backyard as well as hiking in the mountains.

Exceptional Property

  • 5 of 5

Would highly recommend this property. It is convenient to Aspen, Snowmass, Sunlight Mtn and hot springs. Great restaurants are just a few minutes away on quaint Main Street.

The property itself is beautiful and thoughtfully designed. Fantastic kitchen, very comfortable bedrooms, shower in master is fantastic, heated floors, fireplace, room for everyone to spread out and cozy gathering areas. Artwork through home adds to the beauty of the home. Hot tub out back was greatly appreciated after skiing.

It is a lovely place!

Perfectly Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time staying at The Residence! The Bauer's home is so full of charm, along with comfort everywhere you turn. We marveled at the beauty of the architecture and art our entire stay. The back yard living space was probably our favorite place to retreat.

Thank you Bauers! We hope to return to Carbondale next year and can't imagine a more perfect home or location than this one!
