WHAT A GREAT PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I and our 2 kids met our 2 friends from Indiana here. The 6 of us had the most awesome vacation. We did Jeep trails, hiking, horseback riding, whitewater rafting, fishing, hot springs, and a rodeo. The hosts were great and gave us terrific information. If you want to have a relaxing great vacation, spend some time here. Even our dog Finn had a great time! Thank you so much Lorie and Alain, we hope to be back again someday.

THIS RIVER RANCH ROCKS!!!

  • 5 of 5
This lovely home on 6 acres with frontage on the Roaring Fork River exceeded expectations. We enjoyed vegetables from Lorie's garden and were very comfortable in this lovely home. Lorie had great recommendations for sightseeing activities and we really appreciated her wisdom on all things Aspen Valley. We look forward to returning with our family

WONDERFUL STAY

  • 5 of 5
Great place for R&R. House exceeded our expectations as we have rented a lot of homes to compare this one too. They provided us with more ammeties than any other home we rented in the past 15 yrs. Owners are nearby but descreet in presence. Grounds are beautifully maintained. Close to Carbondale, Basalt and Glenwood Springs for day trips or dining. ATV rentals nearby at Marble great fun to take up sheep mountain. Would give this more than 5 stars if I could.

BEAUTIFUL SPACE WITH ALL THE AMENITIES

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying here. The place is peaceful, spacious, and beautiful. Their rooms were impeccably clean, the kitchen was fully stocked, and there were places to unwind both indoors and out. We looked forward to coming back to the house every day after skiing, and as a result didn't dine out in town one time during our visit. Furthermore, Lorie was super helpful. We knew they were there if we needed anything, but (just like she said in the listing) they are available as much or as little as you like. Any time I had a question she got back to us straight away, and she made sure we knew all the ins and outs of the space when we got there. I highly recommend anyone coming to the area to stay here.

COUNTRY PERFECTION

  • 5 of 5
The RRR was a perfect long weekend get-away for my husband and our 2 dogs. Lori and Allen have a warm, inviting home; literally and figuratively! All rooms are spacious and offer plenty of privacy. Lori has a well appointed kitchen and I enjoyed cooking all weekend, even though Main St Carbondale is a short two miles away- drive or walk on the bike path, (the choice is yours).
The property grounds are meticulously manicured with easy access to amazing riverfront; fish, eat dinner, sit and watch the wildlife, again the choice is yours. Easy close accessabilty to rafting, fishing, hiking trails, hot springs, Basalt, Aspen.
Lori and Allen were 100% available by cell and gave us our privacy the entire weekend. They were unbelievably friendly and helpful. We would 100% recommend this rental to any of our friends and relatives. Thank you for opening your home Lori and Allen.

THE BEST VRBO EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 of 5
I was hosting a conference in Aspen and my ex was supposed to hung out with our kids (two teenage girls) and a dog. But he couldn't come, so we ended up staying there without him. I can't say enough good words about the house and the owners! My daughter is extremely picky about food (she is vegan and eats only organic fruits, whole grain, etc.). Lorie made her absolutely happy preparing healthy and delicious meals! My daughter even said she has wished to be adopted by these people! Alain made a cappuccino for me which was so tasty, I haven't had anything like this since my last trip to Europe.
Our dog, an old golden retriever, had problems with the stairs, so the hosts did everything they could to ensure his safety. I could leave my family for whole days without worries about them being hungry or bored.
The house is absolutely beautiful: lots of arts, fresh air and positive energy. I hope to come back during summer time!

Owner's Response: Normally, our home is a vacation rental home; however, from time to time, in-between rentals, we have the options to provide a bnb accommodation. We are thrilled that our guests, two charming teenage daughters and their mother, had a great experience. Being temporary hosts, is fun for us as well as our guests.
