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 ELIMINATE 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- 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!

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.

Perfect location, clean, comfortable, recommended!

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a perfect location in Carbondale, just a block from the restaurants and shops on Main Street and a nearby park for the kids. It is very clean, comfortable beds with soft sheets, and stocked with everything you need.

Very quiet, but in the middle of everything

  • 5 of 5

We chose this house primarily for its great location, and we loved it for that. We spent most of our days out of the house, hiking, or hanging out with friends and family in Carbondale. We were there during some of the hottest days of the summer, so the evaporative coolers were a nice touch, standard for mountain towns in Colorado. The only thing that I can offer as an improvement would be twin beds or a bunk bed to make it more family friendly. Other than that, it was perfect. Well stocked, clean and quiet. In fact, we may be booking again later this year.

Clean, well maintained, owners incredibly helpful

  • 4 of 5

Property itself is a little older and small but very well maintained. I wish there were AC units instead of swamp coolers however I realize that is the norm in the mountains and helps with energy costs. Parking was easy and available, owners were knowledgeable, helpful and available. I would stay again!

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.
