Three couples, connected by family and friendship, are the proud owners of this home. One resides in the beautiful state of Colorado, which inspired the name of the house, one resides in Central Florida and the third in Hilton Head. We have been visitors and land owners in the area since 1995 and have finally built our vacation dream home on this beautiful mountain top site.

Harry Swart purchased this house in 2012

Over the years we have found this area to be peaceful and beautiful yet full of opportunities for outdoor activities. The people of this wonderful valley that we have come to know are warm and friendly and we have developed many lasting friendships. Every time we arrive in the valley we feel like this is home; and now we can say that it truly is our home away from home.

This home has one of the most beautiful views in the area. Locals who have visited our home are awed by the unobstructed beauty of the view. We feel blessed to be able to share our home with you and have taken great care to provide you with a wonderful experience.

MOUNTAINTOP RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
This home is just as nice as the previous reviewers state. I will try to mention things they have overlooked. The décor is very pleasing to the eye, and the furniture is comfortable. The mattresses are just right for a sound night’s sleep. I have a back that sometimes acts up when sleeping in a strange bed, and I slept well all week. The kitchen is nicely laid out and well furnished. All appliances are new and well chosen. (Instead of a nasty buzzer, the drier plays Shubert’s Trout Quintet when the clothes are dry.) The grill is top of the line, and seared our pork tenderloin and salmon to perfection. Something that I appreciated was the nice soft water and good water pressure. (This is not to be taken for granted!) We had an Indigo Bunting visit every morning, and serenade us from the tree top just off the back deck. It is a bird watcher’s paradise, and the host supplies binoculars so you can really enjoy the view. You would be hard pressed to find anything that our hosts have not thought to provide.
A few words about the challenging drive. There are plans to pave the road, but as it is relatively new, it needs to settle before that can be done. Also, it’s not as bad as some make it out to be. Being from Ohio, we may be better prepared for it than some flatlanders.  If you get a running start, don’t let the wheels spin, and don’t let up till you get to the top, you will do fine. If our Honda Odyssey can do it, your car can too. Do not let this small thing prevent you from renting this property. The privacy, the stunning views, and the creature comforts make this a first class retreat. We are already planning for a return visit.

PS The spa IS very nice, and the view from the spa deck is enough to drop your blood pressure ten points!

LOVED IT!!

  • 5 of 5
Everything was just as described! The house was perfect...we thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub, the game room, but especially the view!! I can only imagine what that view looks like in the fall with all the colored leaves!
The property was clean and well-maintained. The drive was steep, but this was expected because you ARE in the mountains!
We enjoyed shopping in downtown Murphy, and downtown Andrews.
We plan on coming back. Thanks for such a perfect vacation spot!

PERFECT VACATION RENTAL!

  • 5 of 5
We had an excellent stay at this property. Had some heavy rain the first day, while the roads are steep, they are easily traveled in any vehicle.
The house was perfect! Furniture, beds, decorations were all quality and comfortable.
Most of our previous rentals have been beach condos. You always wonder how they will be maintained and what they will provide. This house had every last detail covered. Quality cookware any utensil you could think of. I can not say enough about how ready to live in this house was!
We enjoyed all the amenities, hot tub, fire ring, pool table, etc. Enjoyed the peacefulness of sitting on the decks. Saw turkey's each day.
There are so many things to do in this area, we only scratched the surface and are hoping to return again soon.
Thank you for the opportunity to rent your home! I will highly recommend if I hear anyone traveling to this region! I hope we can return soon!

ASPEN EAST

  • 5 of 5
Well where to start!!! I wish I would have brought our 2 dogs as the privacy and seclusion would have been ideal for them to run crazy. The home is well maintained and decorated beautifully. They were workers down below and the only reason we knew they were there was we seen the trucks, but never heard them! Someone complained about dogs barking, the is an Animal Shelter down the road, we heard a couple but that was music to our ears as we missed out pets. By no means were they loud or annoying. I think that the time of year someone might travel there may bring different sounds. Like the highway, barely heard it, but the foliage was full which would block out sound. The owner, Harry was so easy to deal with. We have rented many times thru VBRO, this is far by the best. We treat rental homes much different than hotels, it's someone home so I do the same as if I was visiting friends or family, we clean after ourselves. Wanted to leave the home the way they left it for us. I hope to return again to Aspen East. Harry recommended Murphy's Chophouse and we went 2xs and enjoyed both meals. We also went to Mountain View Marina and rented a pontoon boat and spent the day on the lake. This time of year was quiet on the lake. Stop at a local grocery or Chicken carry out and pick up a lunch and enjoy on the lake. The roads to the home are steep, we had 4WD, not sure is you would need it, but I would want it!!!!! We also were on our way our one morning and me and one of the workers, very nice, asked we we needed anything, or if we did, just ask and if he could assist in any way, he would. He has a lot of respect for the owner. Can't forget the lower level game room. If there are several couples or w/ kids, great place for them.
Thanks Harry for building a great vacation home!!!

SECLUDED GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
We just arrived home from our 5 day mini vacation.
First the good news. Very nice home, secluded and very well maintained, except for some dust and lady bugs. Mattress very comfortable. Has everything that you will need.
Now for the negatives. You WILL NEED a vehicle that can climb hills! If it rains or snows be prepared, you may have problems getting and leaving the property. On our first day, we made 3 attempts just to get up the first hill. But we did make it.
Overall, a very pleasant stay. We would recommend this house to anyone wanting some rest and relaxation. Just be forewarned about the trip up the hill.

AMAZING GET AWAY

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed this vacation so much!!! The house was amazing so beautiful inside and out!! I couldn't have imagined a more quiet relaxing place. We have 3 couples and it was plenty big for all of us! Friday we went horse back riding at a place real close called Chunky Gall Stables the man that worked there was so nice Friday night we went to eat at Murphy Chop house for my birthday thanks to the recommendations of the owner of the property. Saturday we stayed around the house all day spending time in the hot tub and then enjoyed a nice night of relaxing by grilling out. I loved this house and would definitely come back soon! I would absolutely recommend a 4 wheel drive vehicle. I drive a BMW and had we of taken that my car would have never made it to the top of the mountain. I am also appreciative of the fast replies as well as kindness in dealing with the owner.
