Guestbook comments from the owner
Adorble little house and gazebo. We had plenty of overflow room with the extra gazebo for surprise guests. The house and amenities are lovely and sparkling clean. Enjoyed the cool evenings, lots of outdoor time, and wine by candle and fire light. Thank you for a great stay.

I was born and raised in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. After discharge from the Marines, looking for adventure I ventured West. I came to Marble in 1988, and was offered a job working in the historic Colorado Yule Marble quarry in 1990. The quarry was just re-opening after being closed for 50 years...I saw it as a challenge, just outside my front door. In 1997, I moved to this property to rent because of the awesome location to meet and great visitors from all over the world that wanted to learn about the quarry, and perhaps wanted a piece of the 'rock'. I opened my small side-job business, Abstract Marble, to be able to create gifts, and sell marble to sculptors, those who wanted a garden stone, a memorial stone, or just wanted to chat. Employed with quarry operations for 23 years, and served as Mine Superintendent until 2013. The quarry is an awesome place to work, the stone is one of the finest marbles in the world -- and home of marble that built the Lincoln Memorial, and serves as the Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington. In 2013 the opportunity to assist one of the previous owners open a new white marble quarry, and I now am involved in a new operation.

Gary Bascom or Kimberley Perrin purchased this house in 2011

In 2011 the Kansas owner of the property decided to sell, and the property included their little vacation home...a 1905 structure that had been left from the days of the old Larkin Hotel. After the hotel was torn down, only the little house remained. Starting February 2012, I completely remodeled and updated inside and out. The house still has enchanting charm...little quirks that make it memorable and a true treasure in this awesome Crystal River Valley. I raised 3 boys and 2 girls in the Marble area -- hiking, fishing, hunting...wandering the woods, and enjoying the ever-changing scenery. I never get tired of waking to see what Mother Nature has accomplished each time the sun rises. This is the place people dream of visiting, some never get to see it...and I live here! I never take for granted the beauty of the Rocky Mountains, the fresh air, the peace of a very small town...maybe 85 locals year-round, maybe 300-400 during the summer.

Two minute walk to the Crystal River (excellent fishing) and the marble mill site ruins. The Marble/marble Symposium begins July 4 thru mid-August, watch artists create fine sculptures out of one of the world's finest marbles. Slow Groov'n BBQ is the only restaurant in town 2 blocks away...and is fun and fabulous! 4-Wheel drive tours available from vendor in Marble for visitors that want to visit Crystal city and Lead King Basin. Enjoy a 15 minute walk to Beaver Lake (more fishing), and easy access to 4-wheel drive road to ghost town of Crystal City, Lead King Basin, Schofield Pass, and Crested Butte, and back country hiking trails in Snowmass Wilderness. 12 min. to the Cleveholm Manor, and restaurants/shops in Redstone. 30 min. to Carbondale for lots of fine dining. 1 hr. north to Glenwood Springs for white-water rafting on the Colorado River and Hot Springs. 1 hr-15min to Snowmass Village and Aspen for shopping, dining, and a lift ride to the top of Aspen Ski area.

GREAT HOSPITALITY!

  • 5 of 5
We just spent 3 nights at the Larkin house. It was very quiet and peaceful there. The little house has full amenities including some extras. We were even gifted a bottle of wine. The owners were wonderful hosts. We learned a lot about the history of the area and the good places to fish. The local BBQ restaurant has good food. We will definitely go back to the Larkin House again. PS Don't miss the great walk into the old marble mining factory. It's one block south by the bridge. If you love stone architecture, a big surprise awaits you on that trail.

Notes:
Artists love this location...with my small business, Abstract Marble right outside the door, it is like strolling thru the 'candy store' looking over the new pieces of marble that change daily. Enjoy the escape to the mountains, the ambiance of a a small mountain town, live the history, enjoy many activities, or simply relax, take a nap in cool mountain air.
