Why John Gillespie chose Aspen Mountain
It is the best deal for the money in the downtown Aspen area.
What makes this Condo unique
I enjoy this condo because it is in the downtown part of Aspen but yet it is located in a very quiet area. A car is not necessary as all of the dining and shopping facilities are nearby.

Great location, comfy place
This place is like staying at your uncle's place in Aspen. Unique decor (lots of interesting hunting stuff), very comfortable, very homey and complete with all the little things you need but may have forgotten or would never think to pack. No need for a car except maybe for your grocery store run, but there's a free uber-type service that will pick you up/take you anywhere in town. Owner is super nice and accommodating. My only suggestion is to specify the unit number (1G) in the address and also note the 1G on the door is blocked by the storm door, so look for 1F and it's to the right. The address is a little confusing because the condo building (Timber Ridge) is on the corner of Durant and Garmisch but the entrances face Dean St, a paper street on the south side (towards the mountain).
Condo is in a great location, walking distance to a lift, the gondola and tons of great bars, restaurants, and shopping. It is stocked with everything you need for eating in, it's comfortable, cozy, and well appointed. The owner is very available/communicative and easy to work with. Plus, the price/value is very reasonable compared to other rentals in the area. Thanks for the great stay, we will definitely return to this property next time we are in the area.
Thanks for the great review on my Aspen condo.
We loved our stay in this cozy condo! It is in the perfect location where we could walk to everything in downtown Aspen. The condo is very cozy and the beds are nice and comfortable. We had everything we needed for a wonderful holiday getaway!
Thanks so much for the positive review - Pati and I appreciate it as she has worked hard to upgrade and make the condo nice and comfortable for all.
Spacious and comfortable. Great location
We were very impressed with the condo. The location is perfect only 5 minute walk to a chairlift and under 10 to the gondola and bus station.
They had all the amenities we needed including laundry and fully stocked kitchen. Appreciated the humidifiers in each room due to the very dry climate. Place looks better than it does in the photos. Nice to be the first floor so you don't have to bring skis and luggage upstairs. Hope to book again for next year.
Not what I expected
Good location. However, when I showed up the condo wasn't ready and appeared as if the previous tenants were to return soon. I had make up the condo myself and clean bathrooms and kitchen. Owner did call the following day and condo was cleaned but didn't overall feel comfortable. Said he would refund some fund but haven't received as of 3 weeks.
First time in 10 years that my maid did not get the unit cleaned between rentals due to unavoidable circumstances. Upon receiving a call from renter (one man) the evening of check-in, the cleanup was expedited the next day. After finally receiving renters mailing address, money was refunded for his inconvenience.
I was surprised on receiving negative feedback from this renter after resolving his two complaints especially as he did not contact me to let me know he was leaving negative feedback. I am always willing to resolve rental problems and I am willing to work with all renters on any problems.
Perfectly Adequate Place
The condo is a lot nicer than the pictures posted. I think it might be time to post some updated, clear pictures, as well as including bathrooms etc. The place is very clean, well equipped, and in a great location. You are walking distance from town, near a park, and really don't need a car. The bathrooms are small, but very clean and super functional. The bedrooms are a little dark but the beds are fine and everything works well. The reason for the three stars is that we were in the midst of a construction zone. Currently 3 big condo complexes are being built right next to Timber Ridge. Unfortunately the view out of the living room is now pretty obstructed by near-by new construction. No more beautiful views of the mountain... little slice of Ajax is visible. We did not spend too much time indoors so we were not really bothered by all this. Great value for money. John is very easy to communicate with. We had no trouble at all. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks John for sharing your home away from home.
My condo is located is the quiet section of Aspen within walking distance to both ski lifts, shopping and eating. Bus station is nearby with connections to the surrounding ski mountains.
