About the property

5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms in the historic West End

Nestled among huge pines in the heart of the historic West End, this bright and spacious home has something to offer everyone in your group! Located within one block of the local bus route, enjoy quick and hassle-free access to downtown Aspen and free connection to all four ski mountains. Enjoy walking? The downtown core is a 15-20 minute stroll through the classic Victorian and stunning modern architecture of the West End. The Music Tent and Aspen Institute are just three blocks away, as well as Main Street and O2 Yoga Studio. Downtown and everything you need is within 15 walking minutes! This incredible location is both quiet and convenient with plenty of parking.

5 bedrooms, 1 office with a futon and 3 bathrooms are spread throughout 3 floors, which provide excellent privacy from one age-group or family to the next. Settle in and cook your own meals in the newly remodeled kitchen, build a snowman or play a game of badmiton in the back yard, or invite company over to enjoy drinks on the sunny porch, this house has the feel of home when you are resting between adventures.

Here is the layout of the house: The top floor features a master bedroom (king) with a private deck and open-loft office. There is a full-size futon in the office/loft. The main floor includes one bathroom and two bedrooms (4 twins OR 2 twins and 1 king). The newly remodeled kitchen opens to the dining and living room, a great space for entertaining in front of the wood-burning fireplace, eating around the dining table or playing a game of cards. The lower level has 2 bedrooms, each with 2 twins, and 1 bathroom. The large TV/gameroom, also downstairs, has a new 50 inch flatscreen and a super cozy sectional; the perfect retreat for the 'kids' in your group. The laundry room is located just off the game room.

The property manager, Elly, is the owner's grandaughter and has grown up in Aspen. She is available to provide additional services, such as shuttling, and is just a phone call away for recommendations or advice on the local digs.

About Elly Harder

My grandparents, Jim and Della Harder, purchased this duplex in 1971 and have been escaping hot and humid Texas summers every year since.

Our family continues to gather in this home every year to enjoy the incredible Colorado sunshine and fresh mountain air! We love this amazing town, and the 'taste of Old Aspen' this duplex retains. The young and old among us cherish the incredible location of this propery; both its proximity to town and the endless opportunities to play in the Colorado Rockies. We are so thrilled to share it with other groups and families and hope you will enjoy all it has to offer, including its fun and funky 70's vibe!

Spacious and plenty of room for a large family. Quiet Aspen neighborhood.

  • 4 of 5

This is our second year at the Harder House. Lots of space and room to spread out over three levels. The owners are attentive and were available throughout our week when needed. Only a short walk to town. Close to the bus stop and an easy drive to all the ski mountains.

Wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here when attending a wedding. The home accommodated our group of seven adults comfortably. We had a lovely visit and a few pleasant walks in the surrounding neighborhood. The place offered the conveniences we wanted in terms of kitchen needs, sitting areas, bathrooms and ample supplies. The spaciousness of the home allowed privacy also. We highly recommend this location.

Great home for a large family!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay! We had five adults and five kids - and there was plenty of room for everyone.The owner was flexible with our check in time and was available during the week if any problems arose - like a leaky dishwasher. The house had plenty of towels, sheets, and the supplies we needed for the week. The home is a 20 minute walk from downtown, five blocks from the bus to Buttermilk, Highlands, and Snowmass. Located in a quiet, peaceful setting.

So many beds! The house was super clean and had great amenities. On a beautiful and quiet street in a great neighborhood. Not directly in town but a short walk and the bus stops two blocks away! Will definitely come back!
