About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom Riverfront Property Within Walking Distance Of Downtown

Recently updated, our 4 BR, 3 BA home is a perfect getaway for families or couples wanting a nicely appointed, comfortable vacation rental at any time of the year. Situated on a large lot on the beautiful Crystal River, the house has over 3,000 square feet of living space on two levels: an open-concept main floor with kitchen, dining room, living room, large porch, 2 bedrooms, 2 ensuite full bathrooms, and a laundry room; and a walk-out lower level with 2 more bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, a large family room, and a bar sink, refrigerator, and microwave. The house features newly-refinished hardwood floors, new carpeting, bathroom tile and quartz kitchen counters on the main level, and a casual, eclectic style with nice--and comfortable-- furnishings.

Downtown Carbondale—only a 15-minute walk from the house--is a charming, historic town and a wonderful alternative to Aspen or Glenwood Springs. Named one of the best towns in Colorado by Outside Magazine and 5280, Carbondale offers restaurants fit for foodies as well as access to art, music, shopping, and terrific recreational options.

You will find world- class downhill skiing and snowboarding in Aspen and Snowmass, easily accessed in 30-45 minutes by car or local bus. Ski Sunlight mountain near Glenwood Springs is a smaller but popular alternative with locals as are the two hot springs pools in Glenwood. Cross country skate and nordic skiers enjoy groomed trails at nearby community-run Spring Gulch, others in Snowmass and Aspen, and many ungroomed back country trails. The area offers unparalleled cycling (paved trails running from Aspen to Glenwood Springs) and mountain biking.

Fishing is popular in the gold medal waters of the Crystal and Roaring Fork Rivers as well as other rivers nearby, and rafting/kayaking trips are also offered through local outfitters. Golfing at lovely River Valley Ranch is less than a mile away. The surrounding national forests provide exceptional hiking for all levels of hikers and are particularly beautiful during the summer and fall seasons.

Another historic town, Redstone, is only 15 minutes south of town up scenic Highway 133.

We are happy to provide our guests with advice and information on local activities and sites.

About Thomas & Linda Kelley

This home is special to us. My husband, Tom, built this house in 1992, and his sons grew up here. Now a second home, we enjoy time here ourselves with family and friends whenever we can get away.

We still work in the Denver-Boulder area, but as we scale back we are spending more time in Carbondale. In the meantime, we want to share the house--and all of the wonderful activities the area offers--with others.

Why Thomas & Linda Kelley chose Carbondale

Nice views overlooking the river in a well-appointed and very comfortable house. The house works well for couples or multi-generational groups, with two levels of living space and a large kitchen.

What makes this house unique

The views and sounds of the river and the Carbondale community's friendliness and charm make this a relaxing, special place. The area offers numerous outdoor activities in all seasons for all ages.

This was the best house for my husband, myself, our two children, their spouses and their children. The layout of the home is Amazingly spacious and we were all very comfortable. It was a wonderful Christmas getaway for my family and I hope to get to go there again. I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking in this area . The owners made us feel very welcome. They answered all of our questions before we arrived, and even addressed your questions after our stay. We Highly recommended this get away home !!! This was the first Christmas in 12 years we have had all of our children and grandchildren together for Christmas and we wanted to do something special. Staying here made it very memorable for us. I will cherish these memories forever!!! We live in the Loveland Fort Collins area and wanted to do something different and have never been to Glenwood Springs with our family. It was the perfect location for the perfect holiday . We found lots of fun things to do and will be back!

Perfect and well stocked for guest needs

  • 5 of 5

I would definitely rent this house again! We had a group of 7, but the house had ample couch space to accommodate a larger group.

Since we were visiting for a wedding, we had a packed schedule and wished that we had more time to spend at the house sitting on the back porch overlooking the river. I really enjoyed opening the windows at night and listening to the river.

Also, the house was incredibly well stocked in the kitchen and bathroom for guests' needs.

Great property. Very nice location. Nice accommodations for a group or family.

  • 5 of 5

The bedroom/bathroom arrangements were ideal as we had some couples and some singles. The garage came in very handy for our cycling gear. We rode from the house each day, so it was easy to stage for each day. Wonderful evenings on the upper deck and the lower patio with the sound of the river in the background. Fully equipped kitchen made it easy to eat in when we chose to. Good restaurants nearby as well. We had a great week!

Loved the House and Location

  • 5 of 5

We rented the place for our friends coming for a high school reunion. We were also doing a memorial for one of the high school friends who passed 3 months ago. We were able to have a great meal with the amount of space in the kitchen. Everyone told me the beds were comfortable. The outdoor spaces were a great addition to the house. People told me that they were able to hear the river from the bedrooms. The owner Linda was very easy to work with and she is a good communicator. Thank you so much for renting to us for this special time with long time friends.
