I have stayed in many vacation rentals, and this was by far the best one yet! The property is immaculate, well kept, spacious, nicely appointed and beautifully decorated. The decks were perfect for morning coffee and evening sunsets- or grilling dinner. The towels and linens are top of the line as is everything you need in the kitchen. A perfect family retreat- beautiful and comfortable. We have always stayed in Glenwood, but after our stay in Carbondale- we are hooked! This property is literally 4 houses from the best bike trails in Colorado- you can ride all over town, up to Redstone, into Glenwood or all the way to Aspen- any level of bike rider can enjoy the bike paths. We rode our bikes everyday and always rode them to breakfast or dinner. Carbondale has some of the best restaurants too- White House Pizza, Russets, Village Smithy Restaurant- best breakfast ever, and Hattie Thompson at the River Ranch has a multi-million dollar view off the deck. Carbondale has some very fun shops as well. Some of the best fishing is in the area too! Guides take their clients fishing 1/2 block away from this property but my husband just had to walk down the street to enjoy, or a short drive up the road and he was fishing Crystal River, or 1 mile down the road and he was fishing the Roaring Fork River. Just a few miles away is Basalt where the Frying Pan and Taylor Creek are the top places to fish in Colorado. We enjoyed an easy and scenic drive over to Aspen, where we spent the day shopping and trying out their food- the Meatball Shop and Paradise Pastries are the best! Redstone is 10 miles away from Carbondale and worth the ride up to visit the old, historic town- be sure to visit the Country Store. Everyday at 1:30 is the Redstone Castle tour. Take your suits when you go up that way and stop at Avalanche Ranch and soak in the hot springs. And of course, take one day and go into Glenwood and enjoy the world famous, hot springs pool- only 15 minutes away! Or if you have strength and stamina, hike Hanging Lake- it is well worth the sore muscles! Obviously, I cannot say enough about this property or the owners. Wendy was great- meeting us when we first arrived and telling us all the town had to offer and showing us the property. Very welcoming and committed to making our stay as enjoyable as possible. There is a wide variety of music CD's and DVDs to enjoy during your stay. I wish we would have been able to stay longer but we will be back! Thanks!
