We're a 5th generation Colorado family, having raised a family in Aspen for over 40 years. Widely traveled, well read creative people with a passion for travel, music, the arts and outdoor adventure. It's the perfect base for us.

Claudia Cunningham purchased this apartment in 1990

A private, unusual alternative to an Aspen hotel room. An easy and intelligent choice for those who are on a budget but want something a little different.

5 minute scenic walk or 2 minute bus ride to town. Sunny side of the valley - great late light. Easy access to hiking, biking and skiing. Privacy in an apartment attached to a home with washer, dryer, easy access to town.

Great Place!

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I recently went to Aspen and I would definitely recommend this place. The owners are very nice and accommodating. We were a little concerned with how close to town we would be, but it was so close.. just a short walk!! The unit was very clean and equipped with everything for light breakfast/lunches in. If you are trying to travel to Aspen on a budget, this is definitely the way to go. We loved our little hobbit hole!!

Great!!

  • 4 of 5
My girlfriend, myself, and her brother really enjoyed the hobbit hole. It is a very small cozy little apartment with all the amenities a person would need for a few day getaway. It is just a 5-10 minute walk from the heart of aspen. We enjoyed and will be back!

Nice location and great owner!

  • 5 of 5
We went Aspen for ski. This house is in the smuggler park and we can walk to downtown in 10 min. Considering the parking situation in downtown area, this location is very convenient! The house is very clean, well-maintained, and private. Just be careful not to hit your head at the entrance :). The owners live in Aspen for 40 years and are doing ski businesses (with three snowcats!). They know the culture, history and mountains really well. If you want to enjoy Aspen, which attracted great writers and artists in '70-'90, without paying a lot for accommodation, I highly recommend this place. This is also a perfect place for people who want to enjoy serious snow sports with low budget.

We will definitely come back here again.

Good Stuff

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I enjoyed our stay in the "hobbit hole" in Smuggler park. The owners are very friendly. The apartment was clean, in good condition, and located just a short walk from town. All at a great price. Beware of the low doorways between rooms if you're over six feet tall, but other than that, it's a nice place stay.
