Overview

About the property

Charming Log Home, Four Bedroom +bunkroom, 3 Bath, Sopris Views From Large Deck

Our log home provides a place for our family and friends to escape and unplug. We would like to share it with others who are captivated by the mountains and the activities that go with a mountain get away. The majestic setting is private and peaceful, yet minutes from excellent dining/shopping and even a Whole Foods Store. The unobstructed view of Mt. Sopris with the ranch lands below provides an ever-changing scene. Whether it's for morning coffee, afternoon sunning, or evening stargazing,the deck can be enjoyed almost every day of the year. Elk, deer, coyotes, fox and a plethora of birds inhabit the property along with some pesky chipmunks.

Our log home exudes relaxation from the moment one enters the doors. One guest says, 'Each time I visit, I fall in love with the place all over again!'

The three level living provides ample room for a variety of generations and provides sleeping accomodations for twelve. The main floor has an open living/kitchen area which expands to the large deck with its incredible views and several grills.

Also on this floor are two bedrooms (queen bed) and a bath.

The master suite (king) is perched in the loft; Mt. Sopris can be viewed from the master shower.

The walk-out lower level includes a family room with 52' screen, the fourth bedroom (king), and bunk room (sleeps 4) and a bath. The house has plenty of linens and towels.

The ample parking area provides room for trailers and multiple vehicles. This property includes 4+ acres bordered by BLM land

and accessed via black top road.

Don't hesitate to book this fantastic VRBO!

  • 5 of 5

Oh my...I'm not sure where to start! What an amazing house to stay in!! We are a group of eight women who have been friends for over 40 years and we do a trip together every year. This was BY FAR one of the best VRBO homes we have stayed in. The location was perfect for us. Situated on a beautiful parcel of land, we were able to split our time between Aspen, Glenwood Springs, Carbondale and Redstone...all of our activities were easy to access because of this central location. We did use the "park and ride" bus service (RFTA) which was very convenient to the house. Besides the location being perfect, the house itself was perfect too! Enough room to each have our own space, very comfortable beds, delightful areas to gather to talk and a great kitchen to use for breakfasts and dinners in. The deck was a favorite gathering place for cocktails before dinner (and sometimes after!!) We found that the house was well stocked with everything we needed to have to make our stay comfortable. Mary was SO GREAT to work with, she always answered my emails or texts very quickly and we even spoke on the phone when I was arranging for our arrival. I think this house would work well for families too, again, everyone could have their own space. I highly recommend this VRBO as do my friends.

Owner's Response: Amy ... Your fabulous group of eight were perfect guests for our home! What an energetic group you must be as you took advantage of the many things the Roaring Fork and Crystal Valley have to offer. Thank you for choosing our home. Best wishes for many more annual rendezvous for your crew! Mary

Well appointed home with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

This home was beautiful. We (two families) had plenty of space for 9 of us. The kitchen was well equipped. We cooked most of our breakfasts and dinners at the home and ate many on the deck overlooking beautiful Mt. Sopris. On our last night at the home we were did some star gazing from the deck. We even saw a few shooting stars!!

The property owner was a pleasure to work with and was very fast to return emails or texts with any questions.

I would absolutely recommend this home!

Owner's Response: Jennifer and family ... star gazing is one of our favorites as well. Sometimes the night sky is so magical we find it hard to come back inside! We have been blessed with guests as you ... you are welcome anytime. Thank you for leaving everything so orderly! Mary

Impressive home with terrific views

  • 5 of 5

Thanks again Mary for renting your home to us. The home is beautiful and the views of Mt Sopris are stunning. Wonderful deck area. The bedrooms provided lots of space and were comfortable as was the Great Room area. Kitchen well stocked. Easy access into Carbondale as well as Aspen, Independence Pass, Maroon Bells & Glenwood Springs. Mary provided lots of info for activities and she is extremely responsive. Highly recommend renting if near Carbondale.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

This home exceeded our expectations. From the minute we arrived we enjoyed the view and the location with drinks on the deck and steaks on the grill. The beds were all very comfortable and there was everything you could ever need in the kitchen. The large table was perfect for our big breakfasts and late night cards. We enjoyed the close drive to the quaint town of Carbondale. Perfect home for our six friends, me and my husband. We have already planned next years trip to come back. Thank for a lovely home.

Owner's Response: Debbie and friends ... Wonderful to hear your golf trip was enjoyable. We are always appreciative to hear that others enjoy our home as much as we do! Carbondale's main street has delicious and varied cuisine as you can now attest : ) Thank you for leaving everything just as you found it ... we welcome you back for next year's trip. May the rest of your summer be full of r & r ....Mary & Stew

Our log home is located 170 miles west of Denver and is just minutes from Carbondale. Carbondale is situated in the heart of Colorado's central Rocky Mountains at the confluence of the Crystal and Roaring Fork Rivers. This lively, hostoric town was listed as 'Top 12 Towns' in National Geographic Adventure magazine's '50 Next Greatest Places to Live and Play'.

Carbondale is at the crossroads which makes for great exploring. Travel to Moab in 3 hrs., Crested Butte in 2 hrs., Vail in 1hr., Redstone in 25 min., Marble in 40 min., Aspen in 40 minutes or Glenwood Springs in 15 min.

Mt. Sopirs is the god of the valley and the majestic backdrop for Carbondale. This picturesque town embraces a sense of community that values recreation, great dining, art and artistis, community gatherings and events - all underlined by a relaxed, upbeat lifestyle.

The First Friday of each month finds the historic downtown businesses, the Third Street Center, and the Hwy 133 corridor hosting evening open houses along with live music, street performers, and special events.

Every Thursday night during the summer, locals and guests round 'em up for the Wild, West Rodeo at the Gus Darien Riding Arena. All summer long music can be enjoyed in the outdoor venues featuring Sopris Music Fest, the Summer of Music Series and Mountain Fair. In addition, just 30 minutes away lie all of the many events and amenities of Aspen!

A plethora of outdoor activities wait at the doorstep. Bike the Rio Grande Trail, Prince Creek, Red Hill or head up to Independence Pass outside of Aspen. Fly fish the Gold Medal Frying Pan, Roaring Fork, Crystal, and Colorado rivers. Golf the River Valley Ranch course which lies along the banks of the Crystal River with Mt. Sopris as the breath taking back drop. Enjoy the endless hiking trails, white water rafting, hot springs, horseback riding, climbing, kayaking or spending time in the historic towns nearby.

The winter paradise provides as many activity choices as the other seasons. A 30 minute drive finds Ajax in Aspen, Aspen Highlands, Snowmass, Buttermilk or Sunlight ski/snowboard recreational areas. Snowshoe or cross country ski at Spring Creek.

Even though the list of activities in the area is endless, one of our top favorites is just hanging out and unplugging from the normal day to day hub-bub. This tranquil retreat has a way of doing that to even the most hyper!
