Lotus farm makes a great base from which to explore many local attractions. Just 45 minutes from the four Aspen ski areas and endless outdoor mountain access; 8 minutes to Carbondale and about 15 minutes to Glenwood. There is hiking and biking at the front door. It's ideal as a retreat space or family get away. Horses, chickens, Koi , a cat and dog, and a bunny all share the environment with you. The home is an eclectic world travel feel with a private entrance. There is room to hang out and enjoy. Outdoors rural farm land, flanked by BLM on 2 sides offers lots of wild turkeys, Koi ponds, a garden and pastures. Perfect for resting, hiking, biking or going to the The Glenwood Hot Springs pools and restaurant row or the Adventure park all popular options. The kitchen is well equipped with two ovens, wolf range. Back deck has a BBQ and very nice sunsets. And the night skies show the milky way.

Susan purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why Susan chose Carbondale
This property is a unique haven supported by the earths abundance. The home is lovely and the surroundings are a welcome reprieve.

Repeat Stay - Just as Wonderful
We've stayed here for work trips twice this year and have been equally pleased with the warm and cozy house, great views, and convenient location to both Glenwood Springs and Carbondale. Suzan is always quick to reply and accommodated different requests throughout our stay. We'll be back! :)
Great match for our family
We had a great mini family reunion in a comfortable place that met everyone's needs. Everything from the fun koi pond to the incredibly well stocked kitchen was a perfect fit. Thanks very much!
We had a lovely stay!!
My two year old said it best while eating breakfast on the deck, he looked around at the beautiful surroundings and sighed, “This is my home!”
Great Space, Killer Views, Easy Communication
A truly wonderful place to stay! The home is well kept, clean, modern, and with all the amenities we needed. Our group particularly enjoyed the library of books available for us to read while relaxing at night with a roaring fire in the fireplace. There's an easy hiking trail just across the street, and the road is wide enough for morning walks/runs amidst the mountains.
Our group was comprised of 3 colleagues traveling for work. The space suited as well, and provided enough room for each of us to have our own personal space.
Susan and her son, Tommy communicated well start-finish, and accommodated a late check-out and different requests/questions throughout the week. I highly recommend staying here. We'll be back for our next trip!
Relaxing and beautiful
We stayed at Susan's property for 4 nights and loved every minute of it! My kids (8 and 10) loved the koi pond, chickens, horses (especially feeding them with Susan) and exploring all around the property. The kitchen had everything we needed and we loved cooking in it. Having wood logs and kindling all set for us was so great as we looked forward to lighting a fire every night. The overall feeling of the house was total peace and serenity and we would stay there again. Everything was so comfortable and the views were a beautiful addition.
As advertised. Great property and very comfortable. Would bring my family back.
