Property description

There is great easy year round access to our Swiss Chalet style home in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. The Chalet has been completely remodeled with modern appliances, yet its rustic antique charm stills remains. Therefore, creating an ambiance for a true mountain living experience with the conveniences of all modern day living.

Our perfect mountain retreat get away consists of a cozy two level 1500 sq ft. home that is nestled off the main road making it perfect for a very tranquil and peaceful vacation for you and your family.

Truly this is the place to be: Most people will have to drive to get into the mountains, where as you and your guests will be surrounded by the great outdoors by walking right out your backdoor. Everyone will be able to enjoy the breath taking views of the Ragged Mountains and beaver ponds while listening to the roar of the Crystal River from the front deck. Plus, the river and the trail to the famous 70 ft. Coors Waterfall, and state stocked fishing lakes are all within a short walking distance from our charming home.

So, regardless if you are up for some adventuring or just want to rest and relax in peace and serenity our Mountain Chalet has just what you are looking for.

The four bedroom home sleeps 8 to 10 people comfortably, has hard wood floors, two travertine bathrooms with vessel sinks (one with a deluxe walk in shower, and the other with a tub/shower combo), a large kitchen with an Italian tiled counter top and four bar stools for entertaining, delicious well drinking water, a dining table, and a cozy living room with a gas fire place all with TV/ Satellite Internet availability.

The main level connects to a large covered deck which is great for outdoor dining. The covered deck backs up to a nice manicured lawn with a Marble slab table which is great for picnicking, or one can snuggle up to a cozy fire at our custom handmade outdoor fire pit, or let the kids play on the cork screw slide and tire swing.

All bedrooms are located on the top level of the house. Bedroom 1: Queen bed with down comforter and 30' TV. Bedroom 2: Queen bed with down comforter and single bunk bed. Bedroom 3: Queen bed with down comforter, single bunk bed, and TV/VCR combo. Bedroom 4: Double bed, down comforter, and large skylight ceiling.

The driveway is easily accessible year round, level, and parks 4 cars.

Come and stay as long as you would like and enjoy the breath taking views of the Rocky Mountains and the beautiful Crystal River, or stare up at the stars and look at 70 ft. Blue Spruce trees while listening to the river and relaxing in our Chalet home in magic Marble, Colorado.

*Side Note 1: Small group events are welcomed on the property. Feel free to contact the owners via email for options and ideas.

*Side Note 2: The owners are artists. Therefore, art classes (in a variety of mediums) are available for guests with an additional fee. Please inquire via email with the owners.

Come visit the Rocky Mountains and hike to the famous Coors Waterfall outside your backdoor!

Check out the town of Marble, known for its famous Marble Quarry: Where the Lincoln Memorial and Tomb of the Unknown Solider where excavated.

Four wheel to the historic Crystal Mill, drive 20 min. and soak in the natural Hot Springs at Avalanche Ranch, or explore the well known Forest Service trails that take you through territory that the Ute Indians once hunted and inhabited over a century ago.

The property sits at 7,850 ft. and is located in a unique setting because the Crystal River, the trail to the waterfall, and state stocked fishing lakes are all in a short walking distance from the home.

The Chalet home has easy year round access, and is nestled off the main road which makes it the perfect vacation spot for peace, rest, and relaxation.

Consequently, this vacation getaway site is perfect for all seasons:

Spring and Summer are ultimate for swimming, hiking, biking, climbing, fishing, rafting, and relaxing in a quiet and cool climate.

Autumn is great for hunting, site seeing, and for those who just love to see all the beautiful fall colors.

Winter is awesome for back country skiing, ice climbing, cross country skiing, ice skating, snowmobiling on McClure Pass, sledding, ice fishing, and more. Or, it is a wonderful place to spend the holidays if you are just looking for a 'White Christmas'.

Book your vacation now so you can start imaging yourself and your guests viewing a beautiful sunset while grilling in the great outdoors, or snuggling up to a cozy fire while cooking smores with your friends and/or family at our outdoor fire pit.

The owners are artists so while on vacation guests can request to take art classes on-site (for an extra fee) from a certified art teacher or one may try out his/her own woodworking skills in a custom fine woodworking shop. Guests can take private or small group art lessons (for reasonable rates) in any of the following mediums: Drawing, painting, water coloring, old fashioned photography in a darkroom setting, woodworking. picture framing, or ceramics.

If guests are looking for a fun evening out they can dine at Slow Groovin BBQ & Bar in Marble, or they can head to Redstone for some fine dining and free live music in the park.

Feeling really adventurous? Guests can take a 30 min. drive to Carbondale for some night life at PAC3 or leave their car at the park and ride, hop on the public transportation (RFTA), and head to Aspen to hit the many night clubs for an evening that won't be forgotten.

During one's stay some 'must see spots' include...

# One: Photograph the Crystal Mill in the town of Crystal and take a picture of one of the most photographed spots in Colorado (Accessible by a four-wheel drive only).

# Two- Go hiking, site seeing, or four-wheeling in the Lead Kind Loop Basin.

#Three- Explore the historic Marble Mill Site in downtown Marble, Colorado.

# Four: Visit the ferry caves at the Adventure Park in Glenwood Springs, CO (45 min. from Marble). Or, while in Glenwood check out the world largest Hot Springs Pool.

# Five: Visit Snowmass, CO (an hour drive from Marble) to see some ancient bones from the Mammoth discovery.

# Six: Pack a picnic and head to Aspen (an hour and 30 min. drive) and get on the Gondola to go to the top of Aspen Mountain for some breath taking views. While, in Aspen visit the famous mountain peaks 'The Maroon Bells'' and learn about the Diadectes (an ancient lizard with a turtles head) that use to live in the area thousands of years ago.

# Seven: Go gold medal fishing up the Frying Pan River in Basalt, Colorado (an hour drive from Marble).

# Eight: Visit the Janet Jazz Aspen/Snowmass web site to arrange your vacation around seeing some live music at the nearby ski resorts.

Regardless of how long you all stay, the majesty of being in God's Country will entice you and your guests to return annually for your destination vacation in the Rocky Mountains.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: Both my husband and I (Bruce and Tiffany Burton) are long time locals of the Roaring Fork Valley. I, Tiffany, was born in Aspen, Colorado and grew up in Snowmass, Colorado. For fourteen years or more I have been an art teacher for elementary aged students to high school aged students. Plus, I have even taught art classes for the local community college (Colorado Mountain College). I love to spend as much of my time in the great outdoors, and enjoy being a mom. Bruce moved from Chicago to Aspen with his family when he was only two years old. He is a very talented wood worker. For the last twenty years he has owned and operated his custom fine furniture business: 'Knots of Wood Woodworks'. Bruce is a great hands on Dad and is also the happiest when he is playing in the great outdoors. Baylee our daughter, who is turning nine this summer, was born in Glewnwood Springs, Colorado. She is super creative, loves going to school at the Marble Charter School, and enjoys being outside as much as possible as well. Both Bruce and I have Dads that are retired ski instructors so we have been skiing and snowboarding our whole lives. Consequently, Baylee started skiing when she was only three years old. We are all creative in nature, adventurous, enjoy traveling, and meeting different people from all around the world. We sometimes miss the beach, so let us know if you have a beach home we can come and visit. We are open minded to arranging a 'vacation home trade' in the future.

Why the Owner Chose Carbondale, CO, USA:
Bruce and I were fortunate enough to visit Marble, Colorado as kids and have fond and lasting memories of the area from our childhoods. Our love for Marble began when we both individually hiked from Aspen to Marble as students on 'Outdoor Ed' and visited Outward Bound (An Internationally know Outdoor Educational School). It was then that we separately recognized just how special and magical Marble, Colorado is. Later in life, once we were ready to buy a home, Bruce and I were reminded of our fabulous childhood memories in Marble, Colorado. So, we checked out Marble again. To our surprise we were able to find a fixer upper home (that has been completely remodeled to date) on a piece of property that we loved. We couldn't believe that we were able to afford a piece of property close the Roaring Fork Valley that had Aspen trees, the river, and that Rocky Mountain feeling that we became accustomed to as kids. Bruce and I got married on the property in 2001 and have been happy ever since. Side Note: The property is a fabulous spot to have a small wedding. If the idea interests you let us know; we could help make this arrangement a possibility.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
Bruce and I both fell in love with the area and the property from the minute we stepped back into Marble, Colorado. The people up here are friendly and neighborly. Plus, the beauty surpasses most everywhere else we have ever been. Come visit we do not think you will be disappointed.
