About the property

Tucked Away Just Walking Distance From All Downtown Carbondale Has To Offer

Hate not being downtown? Tucked away just minutes from downtown Carbondale you can walk or ride your bike easily. Literally less than 2 minutes from the Rio Grande bike trail and 5 minutes walk from downtown. This 4 bed, 2 bath town home is the perfect vacation getaway for families and couples alike. All new everything and we didn't skimp on anything.

We furnished this home with us living here first and renting second. We personally love to cook and spend time in the common areas as a family so you can expect an amazing kitchen and dinning room as well a great family living room area and game room downstairs. Not to mention the huge backyard that is shared with the other unit. We have a yoga deck, bbq grill and even raised beds with fresh vegetables in the summer.

Felt right at home

  • 5 of 5

We were very well accommodated. Home was lovely and all the spaces were enjoyable. Nice atmosphere in a beautiful little town. No reason to turn on a tv eventhough it was homey and you could relax by the faux fire and watch a movie. Back yard was a pleasant suprise and nice little retreat. Best of all was the books sit in any room with great reading a reach away. Would highly recommend staying here to anyone heading to the area

Very comfortable, relaxing family stay

  • 5 of 5

This property is attractive, well-equipped, comfortable, and full of thoughtful touches like laundry detergent, coffee and tea, an essential oil diffuser, and small herb and vegetable gardens around the yard for grazing. The entire place was immaculately clean when we arrived, and the owners are friendly and responsive. We hope to return!

Spacious and lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at Jerry and Stefanie's property! With 3 Queen beds and a room with twin beds, we very comfortably slept 8 people. We enjoyed sitting out back on the cozy lawn furniture. The place was clean and nice- the perfect weekend getaway. Jerry and Stefanie were so easy to work with and made sure our stay was great. Thanks again for a great weekend!
