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.

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.

My wife and I plus another couple spent four great days at this home. The animals that the owner mentioned in the description did not prepare us for the multitude that we experienced. There were eagles flying among the trees across from the house in the nature preserve and a constant parade of deer and elk around the house.
Everything was provided for us - very complete kitchen for when we wanted to eat there and numerous restaurants within easy access to the house. Great shopping near by for the gourmet treats that you want when on a get-away. There's no need to go to the Aspen area for food and groceries.
We loved the river for fishing and viewing. Steps were easy to navigate ad the view the elevation provided were spectacular.
The house was clean and we had everything we needed. We would all definitely return to this house. It's so private and special. Thank you David for the wonderful time that we had there...

WOW!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our annual fishing trip and had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful home! The views are incredible! Private fishing is just steps away from the house. Kitchen was wonderful. Honestly the place makes it hard to leave. Very private feel. Hot tub overlooking the river and mountains make it a perfect way to unwind after catching record trout all day! The rooms are private and beds are very comfortable. I found this home exquisite with a nice at home feeling. You feel like you are at you own home. (Except my home is now where as nice...and not on a private river!) I highly recommend this retreat if you are looking to get away. Very close to gold metal waters for fishing, close to Aspen for skiing, and great if you just want a mountain getaway with incredible views. I can't wait to come back.
