One word describes Henry, this home, the view, and Aspen.......PERFECTION! We spent Christmas 2014 in Henry's home. There were 10 adults in our party and had plenty of comfortable and private space for all. The house is incredibly appointed and offers all the comforts you would find in your own home. We did enjoy many of the watering holes and restaurants that Aspen has to offer but found ourselves preparing many meals in this fabulous gourmet kitchen most of the time. Please note it's close proximity to town. We did rent cars but also utilized cabs for many trips to and from town with great ease. Working with Henry and staff is a pleasure, very easy and professional. We highly recommend this home for a magical Christmas and suggest you reserve early as this home will be rented quickly. You won't be disappointed. It truly is perfection.
What a wonderful house!!!! My friends and I are used to going to Aspen on vacation. We live in Brazil, and Aspen is just the best place with the best snow in US. But after being for many times in hotels, we decided to rent a house. And we couldnt be more pleased. This place is just amazing, the house is cozy and perfect. We could not be more greatful. The owner of the house, the housekeeper, the landloard are just so nice. We just cant wait for next year. Thanks Henry for letting us enjoy your place, it will be in our memories forever!!!
We are renting private homes at Aspen since many years. Aspen, we call it: last paradise! Within Henrys house we found the absolut best home feel for renting! Henry is a absolut nice landlord - who takes care about every wish - even if you find a open one. In this absolut fantastic and great house! This house does not leave a wish open!
In the morning - you open your eyes and you have this awesome view to Aspen and the (ski areas) mountains. You will love it - miss it - when you are back at home!
To have wonderful holidays - we think - you can not rent a better house in this area!
We will love to come back - because we had a wonderful stay at Henrys house.
This year was the 2nd in a row that we stayed in this amazing red mountain home. How could it get better? Well this year we saw an entire family of deer right out of the kitchen window one morning while we were having breakfast.
When you look back at red mountain from Aspen Mountain when you are skiing, you realize that you have the best and most open location of any house there, no wonder the views are so amazing! We will be back next year!
My friends and I just returned for our second annual guys ski trip and if possible, this year's visit to VRBO #389050 was even better than our inaugural trip. The house has received many upgrades since our last visit, including brand new wall to wall carpet in all bedrooms, new leather sleeper sofas in the fifth bedroom, and upgraded sheets and towels. In addition, although we were too busy to watch much tv, I am told that new flat screen tvs are on order.
As I stated in my first review, the house's Red Mountain location is truly breath-taking and convenient to all 4 ski areas. We hit Ajax, Highlands and Snowmass during our stay!
Thanks again Henry - we look forward to visiting again next year!
We looked at many houses in Aspen before choosing this home on Red Mountain. The views were breath taking and the home beat all our expectations. We were greeted upon arrival and every possible need throughout our stay was met. We have never stayed at one place this long,6 weeks, and I can honestly say we enjoyed every minute. To me it was the perfect location in Aspen. You are very close to town yet it was nice to be atop the mountain to take in the incredible views. The owner could not have been nicer and he and his staff went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay. We can't wait to get back to this beautiful home!
