********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'.

Also...

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.'

Saving you money - cost comparison: The Sunshine Ridge Guest House Value Proposition

We’re committed to offering an exceptional vacation experience for our guests. This includes making sure you get your money’s worth! Here are some examples of what it costs to stay with us…….

•For a Party of 16, our nightly rates are anywhere from $44 -$63 per person, depending on the season.

As you consider accommodations for your group, please compare our rates to your other options. Our per person prices are comparable to most hotels in the area, and Sunshine Ridge offers a huge, gourmet kitchen and great common areas for your group to gather. When comparing costs, also consider the money you will save by cooking instead of eating out. We’ve gone out of our way to insure you’ll have everything you need for a relaxing and comfortable vacation, at pricing that will make you wonder why you would ever go back to a hotel room.

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.

Our family lives in Colorado on the Front Range and we love to travel. Our favorite place to revisit is Glenwood Springs, for skiing, spring flowers, summer fun, fall leaf peeping and celebrating birthday or holidays with friends. 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

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.

EXPECTATIONS FAR EXCEEDED

  • 5 of 5
I completely agree with the other reviews that I had read on the site prior to booking the guest house. Pictures are not able to do this property justice. The well cared for house and its surroundings are dramatic. The floor plan works extremely well for families and other groups. The location feels private and secluded but the town is still close enough that we could easily do the things we wanted (and get the things we needed) without a lot of driving. We loved that house isn't visible at all from the road yet still offers incredible views. One practical suggestion, if you are driving in from Denver and are Costco members, consider making a stop at the Gypsum warehouse on the way. We were able to get much of what we needed for our large group in one quick trip.

Glenwood Springs and the Roaring Fork Valley are hidden gems with all the natural beauty and year round recreation opportunities of other Colorado tourist areas but with far greater value. I highly recommend staying long enough to take in all that the guest house and surrounding attractions have to offer. I can't recommend enough the guest house, it's owners and their local hosts.

Owner's Response: We love your practical suggestion to stop at Costco in Gypsum on the way up from Denver. There are also 2 grocery stores in Glenwood Springs for last minute items, but Costso offers the best selection and price for large groups to cook meals at home in the great kitchen at the Sunshine Ridge Guest House.

SPECIAL HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
This is an extraordinary house in a private, beautiful location but with easy access to amenities. The house is very well maintained and clean, and extremely well equipped for a large group, including small children. For summer use, the outdoor decks are well furnished terrific with beautiful vistas and include both private and a large shared deck. The owners and caretakers are accommodating and responsive. Our family group can recommend this property without exception.

PERFECTLY RELAXING GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful place to getaway for the weekend or longer. This beautiful house easily absorbed 15+ members of my son's high school kayak team and the 5+ adult chaperones. We were close enough to the river valleys to paddle or fish during the day, visit Glenwood Springs, and return to the house for the evenings. The kitchen and dining rooms provided everything we needed to feed the kids. After dinner there was plenty of room to hold team meetings then allow the kids to play in the game room, socialize in groups, or yes, even do homework while the adults could spend time together. We look forward to returning in the future.

WONDERFUL HOME AND VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
This house lived up to the reviews and pictures online. We rented at the tail end of ski season and had more things to do than we had time-skiing, fishing, hiking, shopping, hot springs...plus great restaurants all within miles. The property managers down the street had us over for breakfast and gave us tons of helpful tips which included a great running path and where to see elk and deer herds at sunset. If you never left the house you would have a wonderful vacation too-the house itself and the amenities were above and beyond. Hope to make it back to this incredible oasis!

Owner's Response: Wow, you really took advantage of so many of the activities that this wonderful mountain town has to offer. We visit each month to update the house and are always discovering new things to do in town; we would appreciate any tips you have of fun things you enjoyed. We are always tempted to stay on the property and soak up the therapeutic views of wildlife on the patio, though. We are sure you saw that they are revamping the town; so please come back soon to enjoy several new restaurants, new stores & the beautiful promenade. We love that Glenwod is "growing up" but still has that small mountain town feel. Thank you for visiting the Sunshine Ridge Guest House.

SPECTACULAR. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

  • 5 of 5
Amazing. Everything was perfect, from the initial communication with the owners, to the beautiful location and the spacious, yet cozy place. We could not have asked for a better location for our family reunion of over 20 people, including kids.

The whole place was in perfect shape and clean. This property added to the overall enjoyment of our vacation. Thank you!

SO HAPPY WE CHOSE THIS GUEST HOUSE!!

  • 5 of 5
Dream house! First of all I would like to thank Jim for being so helpful and kind. The house has a beautiful layout and great amenities. The views were spectacular. My entire family really enjoyed their stay and were very impressed. I loved the heated floors! The kitchen was awesome. I could keep going and have only positive praise for this wonderful house.
I feel like the pictures do not do it justice, walking in to the place was astonishing. Very clean and welcoming. Sunlight Mountain resort is nearby and we enjoyed two days of snowboarding during our stay. We followed this up with an evening at the hot springs. My favorite place to eat was Peppinos pizza.
Our family really had fun right outside the house, we made snowmen, had snowball fights, and went sledding up and down the hill.
I would definitely recommend this place!

Owner's Response: Thanks Brenda,
I love my job when I hear that our guests had a great time at the house and Glenwood Springs. We are happy that you enjoyed many of the great activities in town; the hot springs at night can be amazing, especially after a day of skiing. The heated floors in the house are also a warm welcome after a cold day outside. We hope you will carry your happy memories for a long time and hope you took some great photos to remember them by. Happy 2014!
