Check availability by clicking on the 'Calendar' tab.

Nestled in the Rocky Mountains, Casa del Sol is the perfect place to experience all the Roaring Fork Valley has to offer. This spacious, sunny cottage hidden away among six private acres is available for weekend, weekly or monthly rentals. If you are looking for a quiet retreat amidst beautiful surroundings – you can wake up every morning to a breathtaking view of Mt. Sopris. If you are hoping to experience the mountain town life - Casa del Sol is uniquely located between Glenwood Springs and Sunlight Mountain Resort – each a five mile drive away along Four Mile Creek. Casa del Sol is fully furnished complete with a private balcony and covered parking.

Casa Del Sol is great for couples, but can accommodate up to 4 guests. Please note, that Casa Del Sol has a studio style layout, thus privacy is limit if the group is more than a couple.

***Note - due to our location outside of town, we are only subject to 3.9% state and county sales tax vs. the 11% tax required at in town properties.***

Casa Del Sol is located along Four Mile Creek, five miles from Glenwood Springs. As you continue up the road, Ski Sunlight is another five miles away. In the winter this is an ideal family ski resort, with surrounding cross country and snow shoe trails. You can enter into BLM land, and drive to Four Mile Park- offering snowmobile trails and sledding hills.

In the summer, the hike up Ski Sunlight is beautiful and quiet - you will often find yourself the only one there. Four Mile Park offers countless dirt roads to explore by foot, jeep or bike.

Ski Resorts: Ski Sunlight is a short ten minute drive up the road. Sunlight offers a wide variety of terrain, with a friendly local charm.

Aspen is forty miles away - and boasts four world class resorts - Snowmass, Highlands, Buttermilk and Ajax. The crowds in Aspen are minimal compared to the resorts closer to the front range.

For more world class skiing, Vail and Beaver Creek are an hour away to the east.

Approximate Distances to Local Attractions:

Sunlight Ski Area & Nordic Trails 6 miles / 12 minutes

***Special Note for winter guests - All wheel drive or four wheel drive autos are required when staying in December, January, and February. Difficult conditions may also exist in November and March. We have the driveway professionally plowed and generally do not have problems. However, inappropriate cars can and do get stuck as elevation changes exist on the driveway as well as the possibility of slick ice and deep snow. Stuck cars do cause problems as the driveway services three separate properties. You are required to provide information about the cars that will be driven during the winter. Guests that become stuck are responsible for all associated costs.***

Why Mark Spidell chose Northwest Colorado

This house is just a short walk from our home. This allows us to be nearby if the need arises, but far enough away to provide privacy. With great views, the peaceful sound of the creek and the proximity to the great outdoor adventure, this property is truly special.

What makes this cabin unique

Casa Del Sol is unique in that it offers plenty of natural light and great views. It is perfect for a couple's get away or for small families.

This property is special because of its location and unique design. It is close to town but also feels rural. You can adjust your plans easily as it is near many different activities. Awesome snow at Sunlight...10 minutes away. Want to go river rafting...10 minutes away. Awesome snow in Aspen...45 minutes away. Want to going for a bike ride...leave from the house or drive a short distance to some awesome trails and paths.

Beautiful little spot to get away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to Casa del Sol for a weekend get away. The accommodations were exactly what we were looking for! The place was clean, and the bed was so comfortable. We enjoyed sitting on the porch in the evening and watching the sun set while drinking a glass of wine. We met the owner, Mark, as we were packing up to leave and he was very pleasant and wanted to be sure we had enjoyed our stay. I would absolutely visit Casa del Sol again when I am in Glenwood!

Loved everything about it!

  • 5 of 5

Beginning with Mark's directions were very accurate so we didn't get lost. To the place looks just like the pictures so you can't be disappointed. Mark was an excellent host and accommodating in everything we needed. The view is beautiful! There isn't enough to be said. I'd highly recommend this place to anyone going to Glenwood Springs. Thank you Mark for helping make our honeymoon perfect!

Great place to stay. Love the homey feel

  • 5 of 5

We cant say enough good things about this vacation rental. 5 stars are not enough for Casa Del Sol. Mark thought of everthing someone might need while renting his home. The decor is warm and welcoming. The views were phenomenal. We looked forward to sitting on the deck in evenings, watching the deer or other wild life that happened by. We enjoyed looking at the stars, which were so clear since the home is not near the city lights. The atmosphere was very peaceful and calming. Mark was very helpful providing information. He had a collection of books and brochures showing hikes and things to do in the area in the home. The bed was comfortable. We also had our dogs, who loved walking around the property. We would definitely recommend this home. Thank you Mark for renting us this truely memorable vacation home. Kelly and Mike Adkins

Wonderful time @ Casa Del Sol!

  • 5 of 5

I hate to rave because we'd like to come back and not have to jockey for times. It's perfect for two people, and the owners were very helpful and attentive to our needs. Easy to get into town or wherever you want to go. Highly

reccommend this property!
