SECLUDED MOUNTAIN RETREAT CLOSE IN - WONDERFUL FOR 6 -14

Glenwood Springs House Rental Photos and Description

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.

Speaks english

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

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.

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.

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..

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.

GREAT HOUSE AND IDEAL LOCATION FOR VACATION

  • 5 of 5
The house was perfect as we had a group off 11. Plenty of space and especially loved the backyard patio. We have two kids 7 and 11 and the house was close to the Adventure Park, white water rafting, hanging lake and horse back riding. Also it is about a mile to the trail along the river and that trail goes all the way to Aspen. Great access to the trail for bikers and joggers.

GREAT HOUSE FOR FAMILY GET TOGETHER

  • 5 of 5
We were a family group of 11 that came to Siouxzy's house in Glenwood Springs to spend some time together and enjoy the area and it was perfect! Loved the fact that each bedroom had its own en-suite bathroom. Plus there is so much room both indoors and outdoors to get together as a group or spend some quite time alone. The backyard was especially inviting. Everything about the house works and Siouxzy was a great host, making sure we felt right at home.

Owner's Response: You and your family were a pleasure from the very beginning. I'm so glad you all enjoyed The Property and isn't that a sweet spot my son created out in the back garden? I love it out there, too. I'd love to have you back, anytime!

A PERFECT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful time we had staying at this beautiful home! We are a family of 11 that reunited here for a few days, and we are all very much missing this great place and all that it had to offer. There wasn't anything that we needed or wished for. The outdoor space was perfect for hanging out and eating, quiet mornings on the porch with a cup of coffee, preparing meals in the well appointed kitchen, and so much more are part of our experience. It's location was a perfect starting point for our adventures of rafting, horseback riding, hiking and visiting the amusement park. Siouxzy was a great hostess and worked so hard to make sure we were comfortable and didn't want for a anything. We made some wonderful memories at this beautiful backdrop that won't soon be forgotten. Hope to be back soon!!

GREAT HOUSE FOR A GROUP OF FAMILIES

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house for 4 families while we were in town for a friends wedding. It fit our needs perfectly as everyone had their own room & bathroom to themselves but also lots of common areas for us all to hang out together. We especially loved the back garden area as it was well shaded and the kitchen, which we could easily prepare large meals for our group of 14. Thanks again Siouxzy for being so hospitable, you were extremely easy to work with and had the house in great shape for us. Our only suggestion was to have drapes in the back bedroom upstairs as the sun was poking thru pretty early and made it a little tough to sleep in but that was no big deal.

Owner's Response: I'm so sorry about the Back Bedroom. The shade broke after the season began, I bought a new one that wouldn't roll up for the next guests, and then I was trying to make something else work prior to your arrival. It'll be taken care of by your next visit! Thanks for letting me know.
It was a pleasure to have your group and I really enjoyed meeting the two families, bride and groom, that I did. Glad it worked so well for all of you.
I loved that there were happy kids playing inside and out; it brought back many wonderful memories of raising my guys and how simply the stairs could entertain them for large chunks of time. The pool you put out on the deck was a wonderful solution for that streak of H O T days.
Take good care and enjoy those little ones!
