About The Owner

Aspen is a special place that I have lived in and enjoyed since the early 1970's! I would love to share my lovely Aspen home and extensive local knowledge with you! Jeff PS: Please see below for more information.

The Owner purchased this house in 2000

Why The Owner chose Aspen

You can't beat the lifestyle and all the activities available in Aspen year around! While Aspen is really a small town with a year around population of less than 10,000 people, we enjoy some big city attractions! There is World Cup quality alpine skiing and snow boarding on 4 different ski areas, top quality cross country skiing on several groomed courses, mountain biking and horse back riding, hiking, mountain climbing ranging from the 14ers in the area to wonderful family hikes and some of the best road biking in the world. Also mountain biking, tennis, great golf courses, excellant work out facilities and then comes the unsurpassed dining, shopping, and cultural activities including drama, art, and music and much, much, more! Speaking of music, Aspen's world reknown Music Festival celebrated it's 64th Anniversary in 2013!!...that goes all the way back to 1949!!!! Quite an accomplishment that we are very proud of. Aspen's long and storied history is part of what separates us from the others. Aspen is almost 135 years old and has loads of 100+ year old Victorian houses and commercial buildings to prove it... and it is still going strong!!!!!!! This summer the music festival runs from approx. mid June to mid August, 2014, but please call the music festival directly for exact dates and complete schedules at: 970 925 9042. Check out just one of the many things we love about Aspen! It is truly spectacular and has numerous fabulous performances featuring the world's best classical musicians and is definately not to be missed! See below for more information.

What makes this house unique

From the subject property it is just a stroll to downtown Aspen to enjoy all the amazing restaurants, shops, and boutiques! With the sights and sounds and ambiance that only Aspen can offer, including the unbelievable fresh alpine air enhanced by fresh bakeries, horse drawn carriages and world class fresco outside dining on the pedestrian malls in summer, we've got it all.... and at 8,000 feet above sea level, you can feel the cool breezes and enjoy a wonderful cool night's sleep and get away from the summer heat that is every where else!!! Enjoy the historic ski runs that come right into town, just like you see in the finest European resorts, great for hiking too, or just for taking in the spectacular views from the year around Gondola service to the top of Aspen Mountain. Or you can relax in our lovely home, stretch out, kick back, and read a book on your own large, private deck, complete with hot tub, BarBQue, and romantic dining/cocktailing area. Flowers galore in the summer and lots of fresh powder in the winter!! After a long day of skiing or hiking, biking or rafting, golfing or fishing in one of our numerous gold medal trout streams and rivers, or shopping and meandering around the lovely, quaint Victorian town, you can relax in the outdoor hot tub melting the worries away while taking in the beauty and splender that only world class Aspen, Colorado can offer! Sit back!! Relax!! Enjoy!! This is the Aspen Idea at it's finest, and it is all available to you now. Mind........Body......Spirit!... the Aspen Idea since 1949! Please give us a call now for booking or additional information. Jeffrey Shoaf, owner, HOPEFULLY, I'LL BE TALKING TO YOU SOON AND MAKING YOUR RESERVATION HERE IN PARADISE!! SINCERELY, JEFFREY SHOAF, owner

Perfect Home, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5
We came to Aspen over Labor Day with our kids who are in their mid 20's and other friends for the Motherlode Volleyball Tournament, hiking, biking and pure relaxation. This home offered everything and more than we were expecting. As it states it is only 5 blocks from the City Market and yet so peaceful and secluded from the bustle of the city. The sound of the river and the privacy of the homes setting make you love Aspen all the more. The owner could not have been more accommodating, making sure we had everything needed for a great vacation. We will definitely try to stay here again.

Perfect family father's day gathering

Perfect family father's day gathering
  • 4 of 5
This home was perfect for our family to join to celebrate with 4 generations for Father's Day. Jeffrey's home is very comfortable and he is a perfect host. We had everything we needed for a family gathering with plenty of outside space and privacy. The living room, bedrooms and bathrooms were clean, comfy and well maintained. The heart of Aspen was easy to get to walking &/or driving. Given another chance to visit Aspen again we would certainly consider staying here again.

Great boys weekend

  • 4 of 5
Our group of 7 guys in their late 40's early 50's stayed at Jeff's place for our latest annual boys skiing weekend. The house suited us perfectly. We tend to stay in and cook and the well appointed open kitchen was excellent. The only complaint about cooking facilities would be that the bbq could use updating.

The house is all on one large floor with a big master bedroom with ensuite and three additional smaller bedrooms. the open concept living room worked well with a large kitchen island for additional hang out space. As the Olympics were on we were disappointed that the largest tv in the house was in the master bedroom. Although we don't spend a lot of time watching tv or movies on our ski trips, it was difficult for 7 people to enjoy the small screen that is in the living room. The hot tub is in a beautiful spot just outside the kitchen and master bedroom overlooking a small river valley. In general the house worked very well for our group and we feel that it was very good value.

The location, although not right in the centre, is an easy 5-10 minute walk to it. The walk has some ups and downs and during our stay was a little treacherous due to icy sidewalk and road conditions. We did not attempt it in ski boots but opted to take taxis to and from the hill. We were concerned about not having rented cars, but taxis were definitely the way to go as congestion and parking would have been an issue with our own vehicles.

We definitely recommend the house and although the owner Jeff was away during our stay he made sure that any concerns or requests were taken care of quickly by his colleague.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5
Short walk to town, lots of space, good kitchen, nice views. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay. We looked around Aspen to find the right house for a ski trip and this house worked out to be a great set up for the price point. And Jeff is a great guy and very helpful!

Winter Time...

  • 5 of 5
The location of this house is perfect. Very close to downtown area, but also with a great surrounding environment. The house is comfortable and beautiful, just like you see in the pictures. There is place to park, there is a jacuzzi and plus a wonderful view, all to make convenient for who's renting this place. The owner is very nice, and helpful. I would recommend this house to everybody, and definitely would come back.

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5
What a great home to stay at and explore Aspen. We stayed for a week with our children and grandparents and had plenty of room. The house is so close to trails, town, grocery store and museums - everyone could walk or bike to where they wanted to go. Jeff was very helpful and the house was well cared for. Loved the sound of river while relaxing on back deck. Planning to return soon.
