********What can I do in Glenwood Springs?
Glenwood Springs was listed as one of the top seven ski towns in Rand McNally & USA Today's issue of 'Best of the Road'.
Read what Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park Blogger, Mandy Gauldin, Public Relations guru has to say...
'There’s a reason Glenwood Springs was named the Most Fun Town in America by Rand McNally and USA Today. It really is fun, and that makes it a great destination for spring breakers. Whether you live on the Front Range and need a staycation, or are coming from out-of-state for your Colorado ski trip, we hope you’ll consider Glenwood Springs.
(Any time of the year) here’s a look at what you can do in Glenwood Springs:
*In the off-season, Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park has smaller crowds than you’ll find here in the summer. Our Winter Fun Pass will still be available, and it’s an incredible deal. For just $31 per person, you get a round-trip ride on the Iron Mountain Tramway, or a bus in inclement weather, a 70-minute guided Cave Tour, and unlimited access to the Alpine Coaster, 4D Motion Theater and Laser Tag Arena. You can add lunch at the Lookout Grille.
*Ski or ride at one or more of the seven ski resorts located within an hour of Glenwood Springs, including Vail, Aspen, Aspen Highlands, Beaver Creek, Snowmass, Buttermilk and Sunlight Mountain Resort. That’s especially nice because the lodging in Glenwood Springs is significantly more affordable than in neighboring Aspen and Vail, and you are located right in the middle of these world-class resorts.
*Play and relax at the Glenwood Hot Springs, the world’s largest hot springs pool, which is well known for its healing mineral waters. Weather permitting, the pool’s two water slides will be open the last two weeks of March, which adds even more fun to your swim. The pool is open until 10 p.m. every night, so you can spend the day with us, and then relax in the pool afterwards.
*You can also laugh the night away at the Glenwood Vaudeville Revue, get pampered at one of several spas in town, take a snowmobile tour, go snowshoeing or cross-country skiing, choose from an amazing variety of restaurants and go shopping. With more than 100 stores, Glenwood Springs is the largest retail shopping area between Denver and Grand Junction.'

We come to the house with many types of friends, too...yoga groups, kayak teams, College retreat groups, team building meetings for business, chefs cook-offs, weddings, and just relaxing with friends and family. Everyone we bring loves the house and the town of Glenwood Springs. We always have so much fun with our group of friends that we wanted to share the experience and opportunity with you. That is why we started renting. Read our reviews and you can see why we have been in business for 9 years. It makes us happy to know our guests are sharing great memories together at the house.
Shirl and Andrew Niemeyer purchased this house in 2005
Why Shirl and Andrew Niemeyer chose Glenwood Springs
We have rented homes around the country with our family and friends for many, many years. We visited Glenwood Springs and fell in love with the town. As soon as we walked into the Sunshine Ridge Guest House, we knew that it was a perfect place to be a 'Second Home' for all and decided to purchase it for a Vacation Rental Home. It is so warm, welcoming and family friendly inside. The floor plan is perfect for a large group because there are wings where you can hide for privacy, but many options in and outside for large gatherings. The views are stunning and therapeutic. The house is located in a quiet valley, but close to town, skiing and outdoor activities. Of course, there are great options for wildlife viewing and hiking on the property, too.
Guestbook comments from the owner
I was the chef for a Yoga retreat at Sunshine Ridge in the fall of 2013. The aspens were at the height of their colorful glory. The property is quiet and beautiful in ways that only the Colorado mountains can provide. It was a restful and restorative experience, even for someone responsible for feeding everyone 3 times a day. The best guest house I have seen in Colorado. A word to the foodies: The kitchen is beautifully equipped with plenty of prep space and a Viking stove that was truly a pleasure to cook on.
