First off, answering HomeAway's questions:
Yes, the listing description is accurate. The pictures are accurate, though we visited in Winter and there was snow on the deck and property as you would expect.
The property is very clean and well maintained. This is a luxury property...there is no getting around that.
The owner manager was very responsive and courteous, though we did not have any reasons to call her during our stay.
Yes, I would recommend this to anyone who has the budget to stay here.
My group walked the 7 minute walk to the gondola every day to ski. We enjoyed the town of Aspen and found it VERY convenient to walk the 5 minutes to the core of Aspen every night, dine and drink and not fret about (not) having to drive. We really never needed a car.
The house is on the river, off a quiet private side street with zero traffic. I never once saw one of the two neighbors.
Live like a local, stay at this place.
