"This property has beautiful views of the mountains stretching from Aspen mountain to Snowmass and beyond! As an added bonus, you get to see airplanes arrive & depart from the Aspen airport (your own daily air show)! But, you are far enough away from the airport and hwy 82 that the noise factor is minimal. The description of the home is correct...elegant, chic, funky. This house is NOT "over the top Aspen glitzy"...it's more fun & has more character. You enter the home on the level where you find the guest bedroom & bath. The loft is a steep climb from the entry level (has a bed in the loft, but basically this area just serves to enhance the property by giving it higher ceilings). The main living area & master bedroom/bath is downstairs from the entry. The master bedroom is big and has a comfortable queen bed along with a claw foot tub in one corner of the room...the master bath also serves as the main floor bathroom. This bathroom has a "sunken, open shower" which is cool, but has a few deep steps to get into it (no annoying glass shower doors to keep clean). If stairs bother you, this may not be the right place for you, but we found it easy & comfortable and the stairs were just part of our daily workout. We travel with 2 dogs who are part of our family...there are no trails within walking distance from the property, but a short car trip down the mountain hooks you up with many trails to walk, bike or hike. Personally, all I ask is if you rent this property (and you should) that you properly pick up and dispose of any pet waste (even in "natural areas" waste builds up and should be removed) ...respect the property. The owner lives in an attached house, but you rarely see her and the homes are built in such a way that privacy is not an issue."
