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.
