About The Owner
I work in medical home health care mostly hospice care. As a young widow, I moved to the Aspen area to raise my son who is now grown. After he left I started the vacation rentals out of my house. I love making sure the guest have a great time and enjoy my home and the area.
The Owner purchased this house in 1995
Why The Owner chose Carbondale
I moved to the Aspen area because of the outdoor recreation and the relaxed pace. Since I was 7, I had always wanted a small farm on a river in Colorado. I love Jeeping and taking guest camping,fishing or sightseeing if they want a tour and if I'm available.
What makes this house unique
When I do get time off, I love to work in the gardens on my property or in the barn with projects. I sometimes have a large organic veg. garden that I allow guest to pick their vegetables and salads from, some have even asked to work in it for fun and a few have even chopped wood. I guess that's fun to people who don't HAVE to do it. (-:

Re: Need help on the best places to visit in Colorado

I just stayed at a place close to Aspen and Glenwood Springs, and it was FABULOUS. First off, the property was amazing - 4 acres right on the river. Very secluded and beautiful, with hammocks and its own zip-line from tree to trampoline (haha). And there's so much to do nearby (although admittedly I didn't want to leave this place - I wanted to permanently move in!). There's the Glenwood hot springs pool, which is huge and has a couple of slides. There's Aspen, if you're into the high life, and there are tons and tons of hiking and biking trails. Some of Colorado's best trails are nearby: Hanging Lake, Maroon Bells, etc. OH! And the owner of the place took me on a jeep tour - the highlight of which was the Colorado carwash. All in all, a phenomenal trip, and I plan to go back again and again and again - actually as often as I can. Actually, I don't know why I'm writing this review, because if her place becomes too popular, she won't have room for me!!
