Overview

Glenwood Springs House Rental Photos and Description

Wonderful for 6-14

Whether you find yourself on the covered porches in the front of the house, on the deck to the side that gets sunshine most of the day, or if you're out back on the Patio Garden, you'll know you're in the heart of the Rocky Mountains the moment you step outside. You can sit in the sunshine most days, all year round, or wrap yourself in a blanket under the stars as you watch the moon traverse from one side of the valley to the other.

The inside is comfortable for entertaining, relaxing, celebrating, or simply enjoying those you are with. There's a well equipped kitchen with two ovens, two sinks, and an island; an eating nook off the kitchen with great views of the valley, a sitting room also off the kitchen with a large tv and comfy sectional sofa around a fireplace, a formal dining room for gathering, and a living room with chairs and ottomans surrounding another fireplace. There is a laundry room on the main floor.

The mudroom harnesses your ski gear or holds a sweater to grab for a walk above the golf course in the evening. The lower level has another large TV for movies, an original XBox to play DVDs or some games, or to entertain you as you put some miles on the treadmill. There is floor space down there for sleeping bags.

The four main bedrooms on this property each have their own bath and can be made with 4 King beds, or 3 Kings and 2 Twins, or 2 Kings and 4 Twins. In the Guest Quarters Sitting Room there is 1 Twin Daybed with 1 more Twin mattress underneath. There is 1 Queen futon either in the back bedroom or on the lower level.

In the main house, the master bedroom has a king bed, steam shower, soaking tub, and double sinks and dressing areas. The front bedroom has 1 King or 2 Twin beds with its own bath that has a tub shower. The back bedroom has 1 King bed or 2 Twin beds and a queen futon and its own bath with a tub shower.

The attached Guest Quarters that are over the garage have 1 King bed, its own bath with a tub shower, and a sitting room/office with 1 Twin Daybed and 1 Twin mattress beneath it. There's also a private covered porch off the sitting room that overlooks the valley or serves as a great sleeping porch for a slew of sleeping bags.

About Siouxzy

I first came to Colorado in 1964, as a kid, to ski with my family and this place has been in my heart ever since. I've lived here most of the time since 1978, and when I leave, it always calls me back.

My two wonderful kids are grown and mostly gone and my dogs and I have been spending more and more time in another state of late.

I love having people in the house when I'm here and when I'm not and someone suggested I try this to give others an opportunity to appreciate the magic of this place. People who visit often comment on how relaxing and rejuvinating The Property is, so I thought I'd share some of that.

Siouxzy purchased this house in 1994

Why Siouxzy chose Glenwood Springs

I designed and built this house back in 1994 with the intent of providing some place comfortable and special to raise my kids, nestled in the trees. Besides being our home, I wanted a place where my friends and my family were comfortable visiting with us for a week or weeks at a time, so it was important to have enough spaces to gather or to have some quieter time alone, and this house does that well.

What makes this house unique

This house is within an hour of the world class resorts of Aspen and Vail, moments from the local golf course up on the hill, and minutes from the famous Hot Springs Pool and downtown Glenwood Springs. It is about two miles to the pool or downtown. Sunlight Mountain Resort is 30 minutes away and is a great family ski area or place to make fresh tracks all day long on a powder day.

There are bike trails that can be caught at the bottom of our hill which connect us to Aspen and to Vail, or invite a ride along the river or up to The Village Smithy in Carbondale for breakfast. We have kayaking, rafting, Gold Medal Fishing waters, hiking, music, some great restaurants for families or a special night out, snow shoeing, and so much more, or you can choose to simply stay in and enjoy the comforts of this home with its fabulous views and the secluded, heavily treed property on the hill.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Thank you, Siouxzy, for renting to our very large group. Your beautiful house was just perfect for our family reunion...The location was so convenient and the set-up/layout of the house was great for multiple families. We immediately felt at home here..."

Four couples rented house this summer. It is the best we have ever rented from VRBO. Very well furnished house with plenty of room. Nice outside patios and front porch. Siouszy has thought of everything. She is very helpful and easy to work with. Great location near town but secluded. Highly recommended.

Best porch!...and the rest is country beach comfort and style, better than the pics show.

  • 5 of 5
Our multigenerational family with 3 couples and children spread out in comfort. We adored the country style porch and watched deer take cover during a light rain, we played volleyball on the front lawn, and took advantage of the very close adventure park to knock off ziplining from my Dad's bucket list. We cooked all of our meals in the wonderfully equipped kitchen. We took advantage of the games in the cupboard and the music on the stereo. What a lovely time; we all wanted to stay longer! Thank you Siuoxzy!

Owner's Response: You are so welcome, Laura! I love that you helped your Dad with his bucket list as you zipped above the hill. You sound like you really enjoyed the games and porch, two of my favorite things, too. I've heard that before about the pictures and your comment reminds me to get someone more skilled than I, to help me update them. Hope to see you and yours again, too.

AWESOME!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our extended family gets together once a year. Siouxzy was so very accommodating to all of our various needs. There were 9 of us and not once did we feel like we were in each others way. The bedrooms were super with very comfy beds. The kitchen was very well equipped with all that we needed and then some. The house was secluded enough for privacy, but close enough to go do other fun things. We so enjoyed staying in Siouxzy's home. Thank You again!

Owner's Response: You guys were great! Sorry I wasn't able to come in and spend some time with you, as you all were so welcoming and having such a good time. They are comfy beds, aren't they! So glad you had what you needed to feel comfortable and that the house served you well. Hope you're out this way again.

Nice Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Our family is so spread out that we even had trouble finding a single week of the year to get together and it needed to be in central Colorado. Siouxzy was a very helpful lessor and made our stay even more fun. Go there.

Celebration Get-A-Way

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 14 gathered at The Sunny Hills House to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. What a wonderful place. Plenty of room for all of us. Bedrooms with their own bathrooms, wrap-a-round porch, a wonderful back yard eating area and living areas to relax. It was relaxing to sit on the porch and watch the deer and mother turkey with her chicks walk across the yard. Great hospitality!! Hope to go back soon..

Owner's Response: I love when my house is filled with good people celebrating together! I'm so glad you enjoyed the wonderful outside spaces, some tend to favor one area more than another; your family seemed to enjoy it all. I only have a favorite depending on the time of day and season. At the mailbox the other day, I received a delightful thank you note from your sweet granddaughter! I'm glad I could offer such a good spot for you all to come together and enjoy each other, the property, and the mountains. Hope to see you again.

Perfect for our Girl Scout Troop!

  • 5 of 5
From start to finish, Siouxzy was accommodating through email and phone to answer all my questions and ensure that her home would be the perfect place for us to stay in Glenwood Springs. Her home is beautiful inside and out, with lots of room to spread out.

I found myself enjoying the sun on the side deck, relaxing between our Girl Scout adventures. We were only 8 minutes drive away from Blue Sky rafting, so getting everyone up and out the door after breakfast in time for our 8 a.m. trip, was a breeze. Back "home" for lunch and an afternoon at Glenwood Springs pool, made for a perfect day. Again, since Siouxzy's home is so close to everything, we came back "home" for some quiet time/ naps/ reading/ card games before dinner and round 2 at the pool! Since we were only 20 minutes away from Hanging Lake, we were still able to park in the shade of the parking lot before the crowd and the heat, soon after.

We managed to get in and out of the driveway with some challenge, in our 12-passenger van, but I got the hang of it. This house is so large, but so cozy! All 10 of us sat around the kitchen table for meals and found everything we needed to prepare in this gorgeous kitchen! We loved being able to cook on the gas stove and the gas grill. The showers and bedrooms were excellent. We all felt safe and slept well (no homesickness, here)!

This was the best trip our troop has had, so far. We would definitely recommend this property to families, friends troops and groups visiting Glenwood Springs.

Owner's Response: You and your girls were really great guests! I loved meeting all of you and think you all are so fortunate to have each other. It was nice to spend a little time all of you, too; you're a fun troop. You're welcome back anytime. And I heard a seemingly knowing woman say the hill is so red because it is full of iron and what happens when iron gets wet? It rusts and turns red. Maybe that's why it gets even more vibrant after a good rain.
