Wonderful stay in Aspen

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this property. Great location. Right on the river and a close walk in to town. Our kids enjoyed playing in the snow right outside the back door. We hope to be back again! Thank you

Wonderful two weeks on the Roaring Fork in Aspen

  • 5 of 5

If you enjoy short walks into town along the river and through the John Denver Sanctuary, excellent fly fishing from the backyard, running or biking along the Roaring Fork, grilling outside, a large kitchen, great music, the constant sound of a mountain river, comfortable beds and helpful owners, then you are not likely to do better than this lovely home in Aspen.

Riverbend House is an amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned home from staying at Riverbend House for a week. We have been walking by this property for years and always thought it was such a fabulous house. We found it here on VRBO and couldn't believe our good fortune it was available for the week we wanted. It was even better than we imagined it would be. The location is ideal for walking to just about anywhere in town. Listening to the river from anywhere in the house was so relaxing. I especially loved the kitchen with the top of the line appliances! Debra was the perfect host and we have already booked it for next summer! Best place we have stayed in Aspen as long as we have been going there which has been over 40 years.

This was the most beautifully appointed home that we have ever rented. The inside and outside were magnificent. Our weather was sadly poor but we can't blame our wonderful hosts and they tried to offer us discounted time to compensate. We would absolutley come back.
