Beautiful property! Loved sitting outside on the back patio and enjoying the beautiful garden.

  • 5 of 5

Property is perfectly located to be able to walk to all the cute businesses on Main Street and most importantly to White House Pizza! (We love that place). Also convenient to the bike path between Aspen and Glenwood Springs. The house is exactly as described and pictured on the it is gorgeous! We didn't have any issues while we were there for a month but the owners did check in with us so I am sure they would have corrected any problems promptly. We will definitely stay here again when we come to Carbondale!

Beautiful and spacious! An easy walk to downtown Carbondale.

  • 5 of 5

We were in Carbondale for a wedding and had a full house with family. The Residence had everything we needed and was so comfortable. The property is beautiful inside and out and our 3 grandchildren loved playing board games on the back patio - it is a garden oasis.

There were bikes for children and adults and a very nice city park 2 blocks away. Can't beat the location.

Marti and Chuck were so helpful to make sure our stay was pleasant. They brought a pack and play for our youngest granddaughter - so nice.

This is a beautiful family home - thanks Marti and Chuck for sharing it with our family! We will be back when visiting the newlyweds.
