About the property

We are one block off main street in downtown Carbondale

Our rental house is a cozy 3 Bedroom house with new and comfortable furnishings. The address is 665 Colorado Avenue. We would like to note that is comfortable for six guests. The dining area is small and will fit six with a "tight" squeeze. We have an extra table if necessary. Some guests have set up the tables in the living room for more space! THE HOUSE IS EQUIPPED WITH A WHOLE HOUSE WATER FILTER. WE WANT TO ENCOURAGE OUR GUESTS TO BRING WATER CONTAINERS TO ELIMATE PLASTIC WASTE. We also have water bottles for your use. It is in a quiet, friendly neighborhood.

We have so many fun filled events in our town and there is easy access to Aspen and Glenwood Springs. Outdoor activities for everyone or if you prefer to read a book, we have a brand new beautiful library a few blocks away. How about a movie? Our movie theater is very unique and shows fantastic movies- Our local community food coop is short walk as well. The bike paths connect Glenwood springs, Carbondale and Aspen. For some great, local live music, Steve's Guitars is a 5 min walk. The Carbondale Recreation center is just down the alley. There is so much more... We know you will love Carbondale as much as we do!

Why Leslie Johnson chose Carbondale

This place is simple and comfortable and you have easy access to everything

What makes this house unique

Our downtown has lots of great shops, restaurants, art galleries and you can walk. We have a great Recreation center a few houses down. It is a wonderful neighborhood too! There are some incredible cross country ski trails right outside of Carbondale and there are places to rent cross country gear. Sunlight Mountain is 10+ miles away. We have easy access to Aspen/Snowmass Mountains by a great local bus system and the bus is steps away from the rental. The house is very warm and cozy with radiators in every room.

Prime location

  • 4 of 5

Place is really convenient to leave the car parked, walk into town and bike to the Rio Grande Trail. One bath was challenging for two couples, but knew that going in.

Mama Daughter get-away w a couple girlfriends passing through.

  • 5 of 5

The 2017 Mountain Fair & wanting some Mama Daughter time is what prompted us and it was everything we hoped for. Parked the car and never got back in it until it was time to leave. Everything you need is walking distance. Bike path right there. Bedrooms are spacious w comfy beds. Living room accommodated a clutch of women comfortable. The kitchen worked great for cooking, w room for others to sit & chat. We had a lot of meals at the house, as town was crowded. Sweet little yard fenced in. Fortunately we brought a couple chaise lounges. The yard chairs could be replaced. Very safe neighborhood. Leslie was a very gracious, helpful host. We will do this again some year.

Quaint home in awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property for those who want to be within walking distance of all that Carbondale has to offer. On top of that, it's located one block away from a major biking trail. The house itself has all that you could need - full kitchen, nicely appointed bedrooms and small front yard sitting area.

Beautifully updated house

  • 5 of 5

The inside of the house is bright, well furnished, and well maintained/clean. It was pleasant having morning coffee in the front yard on the lawn furniture. Perfect location; within walking distance of restaurants and shops. The three queen beds were very comfortable. The description and photos are accurate. The house had all the amenities you could want from wi-fi to washer and dryer! Certainly a good value. The friendly owners were available and very helpful.

A cozy place in downtown Carbondale

  • 5 of 5

This was a great little 3 bedroom house right in the heart of downtown Carbondale. This worked perfect for our group (2 couples). The house was clean, comfortable, well decorated, and more spacious than it looks from the outside. We had events to attend in Carbondale and it was an easy walk to Sopris Park, The Poor House, and the Village Smithy.

I would suggest that anyone who wants to get in touch with the owner to call, this seemed to work better than email.

In all, a great home in a great town.
