This home is a wonderful place to make memories! We are only minutes from all levels of hiking trails, gold medal water fishing in the Frying Pan River, hundreds of miles of nature to explore, fishing and boating, kayaking, canoeing, jet skiing on Ruedi Reservoir. The possibilities are endless; the only limitation is your imagination. There is literally something for everyone here.
We are surrounded by nature and breath taking beauty and only 20 minutes away from the vibrant yet quaint historic town of Basalt. There you can find wonderful restaurants, bars, dancing and local shops as well as a Whole Foods if you prefer to stay in and cook. We are also only approximately 30-45 minutes from all of the dining and shopping in Snowmass and Aspen.
This property has it all; the master bedroom is a loft with a king size bed, lots of windows and light and a private bath with shower and big soaking tub. There are 2 bedrooms on the main floor. One of these main level bedrooms has a queen bed with fantastic views and the other has 2 rustic bunk beds. This main floor also has a wood burning stove and a full bathroom.
The lower level has a tv/game room with a wood burning stove. On this level there is another bedroom with a queen bed and a full bath.
The house has a newly remodeled kitchen with stainless appliances and granite counter tops. The kitchen table seats 6 and there are 3 bar stools at the kitchen counter. Although the dining area inside is great; we imagine you will enjoy eating outside at one of the dining areas on the decks.
Three beautiful spacious decks to enjoy the outdoors, exceptional star gazing and the peace and quiet of this area. The lower level deck has a wonderful hammock where you can read a book, take a nap or just relax and take in the views. A ski lift chair swing is the perfect place to have your morning coffee and take in the view of the mountains and the sounds of nature.
We think this is the perfect spot to relax and get away from it all as well as to take in the scenery and fill that adventurous spirit. We want to make this a great get away for you and will take all steps necessary to make it so. We have been in the beautiful valley for almost 50 years and we will provide you with a wealth of information about the best hikes, camping spots, fishing holes and any activity you are interested in from a local's perspective.
I fell in love with this valley as a child. Having spent almost 50 years in this valley I knew I wanted to own a home here one day. The opportunity arose and we bought this wonderful unique property. We want to share it with you. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
While it is difficult for us to narrow down, our favorite thing about this house is the proximity to everything we love: hiking, fishing, exploring, boating, reading in the sun on a beautiful deck, camping, star gazing and it is a wonderful place to hang out and reconnect with friends.
Another favorite things about this house and we think it may be yours too, is the chair lift swing on the second deck....oh, and the hammock on the lower deck...and the kitchen, I love my kitchen! There really are so many things we love about this house it is just too challenging for us to narrow it down. We cant wait to hear about your favorites!
We stayed here for a week in December, and got to experience the winter wonderland we had hoped for. The house is super spacious, and compared to other rentals we have stayed in it was very well stocked with the necessities of living that made it welcoming the minute we stepped in the house. The beds were very comfortable, and with four bedrooms, three full baths and two sperate living areas it was more than enough space for everyone to relax. It was so nice to sit by the cozy fireplaces and watch the snow coming down! The views are unbelievable, and we even got to see a bald eagle. We mostly spent our days skiing and then relaxing in this beautiful mountain home. Jennifer was always available to answer any questions we had and was always very welcoming to speak to. She even decorated the house for Christmas which made it even more special for our family winter vacation :). I can't speak highly enough about how much we loved this place and would definitely recommend it to anyone. Thank you Jennifer!
this house was fantastic. It felt like home. Plenty of room for our two families. Great kitchen- we cooked every night. We loved taking the kayaks out on the reservoir. We made s'mores outside on the fire pit. The decks and views were amazing. The beds were very comfortable. The house was spotless. Wonderful vacation home. Thank you for sharing it, Jennifer!
It is with pleasure that I write this review. We had a wonderful time in Co. in part due to the beautiful house we called "home" for a week. Very comfortable and clean. Kitchen was well equipped for the chef's of the family. Nice views from the deck where we ate breakfast and dinner each day. The evening sunsets reflected off the surrounding mountains. Between the outside areas (2 decks, lower patio area), and the main floor living room and the downstairs family room, there was plenty of room to spread out and find a peaceful place to relax. The beds were very comfortable. The wildlife included daily encounters with several deer (2 doe's, 1 buck and a fawn). My sister went for a daily morning run and saw a bear and a marmot. There are numerous birds that can been seen off the deck (including 2 humming birds that entertained us daily on the upper deck). We stayed there for the fly fishing in the area. Numerous local flying fishing opportunities - just ask Jennifer -she knows all the areas. There are 2 fly shops in town to assist with all the planning and supplies. As I keep telling my wife, we can never have "enough flies" . Great place, highly recommend the house! Jennifer was very responsive to our questions.
We brought three households together at Ruedi Overlook to enjoy one of the last weeks of summer with family. The property is even more stunning than the pictures show! Views are spectacular, and the house itself is both beautiful and spacious. We enjoyed cooking in the state-of-the-art kitchen, sleeping in the extremely comfortable beds, and star-gazing from the many patios and decks. We had a great time fishing and kayaking on the reservoir and enjoyed the local hikes there as well. Trips to Aspen and Basalt were also very doable and fun. We all hope to come back!!!
My family really enjoyed our stay at this wonderful home. The views are amazing. We loved getting to see deer right outside of our windows everyday and we enjoyed eating dinners out on the decks, making s'mores in the fire pit, stargazing, etc. Jennifer is great to work with and provided us with lots of information about things to do in the area. The house has everything you need - cooking essentials, towels, blankets, board games, flat screen tv, DVDs, cleaning supplies, etc. Would highly recommend this property!
We stayed at this amazing cabin with another family during a week long vacation. We can't speak highly enough about the property itself and the spectacular views and peaceful days we shared with our friends there. There was plenty of space to spread out and it blew our expectations away! The owner was more than helpful in providing information as where to hike, explore and could not have been more accommodating. We highly recommend anyone who is looking for a peaceful and quiet mountain get away to stay here! AMAZING!
This house is surrounded by mountains, gold medal fishing on the Frying Pan River and beautiful Ruedi Reservoir. This is a winter wonderland. Its a is a great place to get away from the crowds. You can enjoy going in to town for the day to ski or take advantage of the peace and quiet. You can snowshoe or cross country ski and enjoy the natural beauty in the Frying Pan River Valley. We have great trails to x-country ski or snowshoe or you can go right out on the lake for a great day of exploring on your skis or snowshoes. It truly is breathtaking to be the first to get out on the trails or the lake after a fresh snow and yours are the first tracks! If you prefer, sitting by the fire reading a book and watching it snow is pretty spectacular too. Ruedi Overlook has fantastic views from every window and you can stay in and toasty warm and take in the beauty of the falling snow and the snow covered mountains.
In the summer the hiking opportunities are unlimited and you will find views like no where else on earth. The house is minutes from a 'gold medal' trout river and Ruedi Reservoir for boating, skiing, jet skiing, paddle boarding, fishing, camping and fishing. There are day hikes and overnight backpacking opportunities are limitless.
