Overview

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 Northwest

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.

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.

Awesome Property

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using VRBO (Homeaway) and we're so glad we did! Everything was as described by the owner on the website. Really loved being so close to the river and leaving our windows open so we could hear it while we slept. Kitchen was well appointed as were the bathrooms and bedrooms. There were 8 of us (4 adults and 4 kids) and there was PLENTY of room. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Well-maintained property, quiet

  • 5 of 5

This was our 21st annual fishing weekend. All of the guys enjoyed the accommodations very much. Caught fish right outside the back door, in the Roaring Fork & Frying Pan. Cooked all our food in the well-appointed kitchen. Tasteful upgrades throughout. I would definitely stay here again.

Very comfortable for 6 of us! Totally enjoyed all the open space and back patio is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

So enjoyed hearing the river as I drifted off to sleep each night. The house is very well stocked with items in the pantry and we found that what we brought for food along with the available spices were quite enough. Having Netflix was a nice option to TV. The teens would have liked to have had that option in the basement TV for their own selection of movies, etc. to watch.

Very pleasant atmosphere and would definitely look at coming back with my family again.
