Fine Artist & Designer and world traveller. My home reflects travels and has been built as the place I'd like to visit. I'm an avid out door enthusiast, hiking, skiing, trail riding and being on the river. I facilitate horse and art lessons.
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.
What makes this Apartment unique
This home has mature trees and is nestled in an agricultural valley flanked by BLM. It's a bit cooler than Glenwood Springs but still very close to Aspen, Carbondale and Glenwood. A slice of heaven on earth. It's an opportunity to be in a rural setting with nature and animals. it's peaceful.

Very cozy and nice place with gorgeous views!
Every time when I enter a vacation rental with my little children, first thing I put attention at the cleanliness of the floors, and this home was spotless! Our white socks stayed white :) comfortable beds and pillows, beautiful views from the windows and patio. Will definitely come again!
Yekaterina & her family are wonderful guests. She left my home cleaner than any previous guest. They are nice people and wonderful guests!!!
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.
A Little Piece of Heaven
We had a wonderful stay at Lotus Farm. We took our daughter and granddaughters over their spring break and found plenty to do. The house is adorable, comfortable, and roomy, with a well supplied kitchen. If there is a certain appliance or kitchen utensil that I need for a meal, i usually bring it, but I certainly didn't need to on this trip, it had everything. The views were amazing and I only wish we could have been there in warmer weather so we could have enjoyed the deck and porch and gardens. This little piece of heaven is located between Glenwood Springs and Carbondale where there are plenty of outdoor activities to do. My husband went fishing everyday and my daughter and her girls went tubing and rode the Alpine Coaster in Snowmass one day, skied another day and of course we had to go to the hot springs pool in Glenwood Springs one day. While we loved the ambience of the whole place, my granddaughters loved the horses, the bunny and chickens, the dog, Percey, and did I say the bunny?
I don't want to forget Susan. She was johnny-on-the-spot if we had a problem or need, of which there wasn't much. She was so nice and wonderful to visit with and I know she made my granddaughter's day when she let Lexi help feed the animals. We definitely recommend staying here and hopefully we will be back in warmer weather.
Thank you, Susan, for sharing your wonderful place with us.
