FALL AND WINTER BENEFITS!

PRIVATE FISHING - September thru November is awesome. Green drakes, hoppers and all kinds of mayflies. Always hatches of PMD's and Blue Wing Olives on the Frying Pan River which is only 3 miles away. There is always good fishing year round. A private tributary of the Roaring Fork runs in front of the house and the river is about 100 yards away. The tributary averages 40 feet in width with 9 separate pools. Hundreds of catch and release trout. We are across from a nature conservancy with a path leading across the island in front of the house to the Roaring Fork River. We have an exclusive fishing easement which opens up over A MILE of fishing in both directions with no access allowed from the conservancy side of the river.

BIKING - We are in the middle of the Roaring Fork Valley and just 1/2 mile from the 45 mile long bike path from Glenwood Springs to Aspen. There is easy access to all levels of biking from our homes. The Missouri Heights are close by for the more adventuresome and the Frying Pan River road outside of Basalt is one of the most scenic rides in the country.

GOLF - Four public courses within 10-30 minute drive; River Valley Ranch Golf Course, Iron Bridge, Aspen Municipal and Lakota.

CROWN MOUNTAIN PARK - Just up Valley Road a quarter of mile with walking, biking, tennis, basketball, baseball, soccer, volleyball, horseshoes, and a dog park. Beautiful views and a lovely walk to the river.

ASPEN/BASALT/CARBONDALE - Music and art festivals, shopping and dining, museums and lots of local culture. Golf, hiking, biking, fishing, birding, horseback riding,site seeing--there's lots to do.

WILLITS SHOPPING - Just 1 mile up valley enjoy WHOLE FOODS, Starbucks, 9 upscale restaurants, movie theaters, specialty food stores and bakery, grocery, apparel, kitchen and other shops. Carry out food is available, too.

WINTER BENEFITS! We only get about 25% of the snow that is received in Aspen which means you almost never have to worry about getting out of your driveway to go skiing. Our south facing home overlooks a deer and elk migration corridor. This means that you will watch the animals cross the river and feed on our south facing river banks almost on a daily basis. We live close to Highway 82 which is the four lane road leading to the ski slopes. This road is usually the first cleared and ready for full operation by 8 am in the morning. In addition, we also offer heated sidewalk and garage aprons for easy access for your guests and car. NEW...RFTA..( The Roaring Fork Transit Authority) has just opened a new park and ride site a half a mile from this property ...You will be able to park your car and ride to the ski slopes for only $3.00 per round trip...these will be brand new hybrid vehicles that will have their own lane to avoid traffic jams..the mid valley site will offer travel every 30 minutes from this location which is more than any other location The fishing is also excellent in the winter. One of the deepest holes on the Roaring Fork is located in front of the property. Go deep with small nymphs and a big brown will be the reward. It is easy to cross and wade both sides as the water is low and slower.

Aspen/Snowmass/Buttermilk/Highlands ski areas are an easy 25 minute drive up valley. Sunlight ski resort is 20 minutes down valley and Beaver Creek and Vail just an hour away. The climate is warmer and sleeping is more comfortable at the lower elevation (6500 ft).

HOME and GUESTHOUSE

Our home is expensively decorated and yet have an ease of living to it. The sound of the river and changing lights through the Aspen trees create an atmosphere that cannot be purchased.

The house fronts 1,200 feet at the confluence of the Roaring Fork River. The main house has four bedrooms and three baths and sleeps 10. We also have a queen rollaway and two children's sleeping bags. You can relax in the hot tub on the patio or give your muscles a rest on the electric massage table in the master bedroom.

The guesthouse sleeps 4 and has 1.5 baths.

We have a homebook with all the information you will need. A guesthouse that sleeps four is also available. Please see listing 910314 for details.

Overlooks river and nature conservancy, private fishing, easy access to ski slopes, 200 yards from main highway 82 to Aspen and Snowmass. The valley's largest grocery store, 9 outstanding restaurants,10 theater movieplex and a 10 lane bowling alley within 1 mile. Hot Springs and worlds largest outdoor pool within 20 minute drive in Glenwood Springs.

Beauty and Convenience

  • 5 of 5

This is our favorite spot in the valley. The view over the river onto the mountains is beyond description - delightful with your morning cup of coffee or from the hot tub while unwinding apres ski. The house was spacious enough for ourselves, our son's family of 4, and another couple who joined us for a couple nights- we could cook out and spread out and still find privacy when needed. I like the easy driving to the grocery store, the frontage road access so getting onto Hwy 82 was without challenge, and the convenience to Snowmass, Carbondale and Glenwood Springs - all favorite venues. Best of all is relaxing and enjoying a wildlife visit to this property.

Absolutely Lovely

  • 5 of 5

What an absolutely lovely, spacious property! Ideal for a quiet, relaxing getaway. Spent much time just walking around the property, admiring the abundance of lovely flowers. Sit and watch the river from a swing just out the back door. The home is clean and exquisitely decorated; very spacious but with a cozy feel. The Aspen shops, restaurants and galleries are just minutes away, but no need to pay Aspen prices! We plan to revisit this summer.

Special place to visit...wish we could live here!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed looking out at the river, watching the birds glide by, the deer nibbling, and the glorious light reflecting on the river. The views are magical. We were so comfortable in this house and had all we needed. The kitchen was well supplied and there were plenty of linens and warm blankets. We enjoyed the hot tub after skiing and found getting to the ski areas was an easy drive up the highway. Not very far and a lovely drive. Grocery shopping was nearby as well as nice restaurants. We look forward to returning to this grand house on the river.

Fabulous spring skiing and fishing!

  • 5 of 5

Our family is already missing this wonderful place. We went skiing at Snowmass which was easy to get to and my husband enjoyed fishing on this marvelous property.

He caught a very large brown trout! The house is lovely and the views incredible. I highly recommend enjoying this home and the areas' activities and restaurants.

A ROOM WITH A VIEW -- Wildlife, great beds and the stream lullaby

  • 5 of 5

Such a peaceful abode sandwiched our mornings and nights around amazing spring skiing, well appointed with an amazing sofa bed and a large queen, stocked kitchen, and easy to use electronics. With bald eagles soaring above the river, ubiquitous Canadian geese and mallards floating by, two bucks frolicking as in a mating competition, it was hard to leave the deck to get to the slopes. I am already trying to book a return and wrangle work as a gardener this spring.
