We've stayed at several rental houses in Aspen but the Eagle's Nest is now at the top of our list. There is certainly a "wow" factor when you enter as you are surrounded by magnificent views in every direction. The house is beautifully furnished and very comtemporary and comfortable, the kitchen fantastically equipped and everything clean, well cared for and lovely. There are a variety of outside spaces and balconies to enjoy your morning coffee or a glass of wine outside on the patio with a fire going and fantastic views of the mountains . We particularly loved the surround sound on both levels, the lighting and the many details that made this such a pleasant experience. The hot tub and steam shower was an added plus. One of the best features of the house, besides the overall beauty, is the privacy that it affords. You don't need to worry about noisy neighbors or partying ski crowds...we really felt as if we were totally by ourselves on top of the mountain surrounded by beauty and nature and the magnificent mountain views out of every window. Another bonus was the proximity to the airport (we were here for a month and had to make a couple of trips out) and to the AABC where there is a terrific grocery store (Roxy's) and Louis Swiss Bakery where you can get a latte and a fresh loaf of bread or pastry. In many ways, the location was more convenient than being closer to town.
The owner was a pleasure to deal with, totally responsive to every question or problem and very generously offers the use of a vehicle during your stay (of a month) at no cost which was a huge savings.
One of the things we liked the best is that there are large open spaces where the whole family can congregate both inside and out and yet there are intimate, quiet spots where you can sneak off to get away from the rest of the group. This would make it equally great for a girls getaway or a family with both small or adult children. There is also the great Snowmass Rec Center which is just down the road and has a great outdoor pool plus a wonderful gym.
We wholeheartedly recommend the Eagle's Nest....5 stars plus!! Just don't try to book it for the month of June for the next 10 years as that's what we plan to do.
