About Bill Parsons

Riverhouse is only a place, made priceless by memories of rich summers, fun winters and happy holidays with four generations of family and friends amidst the splendor of God's creation. We gather as often as we can to enjoy this blessing.

Let us share our Riverhouse with you.


Bill & Terri Parsons

Bill Parsons purchased this house in 2006

Why Bill Parsons chose Northwest Colorado

Riverhouse exceeds our needs by allowing room for everyone to have their own space with ample outdoor spaces for children/grandchildren to play in safety. Easy access to world-class fishing on site and other summer watersports. We especially enjoy being in a more relaxed setting while having easy access to all the wonters of the Roaring Fork Valley with skiing, hiking, cycling, etc. only minutes away.

Wonderful Anniversary vacation with our family and friends!!

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased with this amazing house by Aspen. It was so much more then we imagined. We had 11 of us celebrating our 15 year wedding anniversary. Plenty of room for everyone! Loved the views, balcony and especially the path down to the river. We spent a lot of time down there as well as in the screened cabin by the river. Every morning as our guests awakened, we all met on the balcony. The views of the mountains were amazing! The sounds of the river flowing were so relaxing. We will definitely be back! We did not want to leave. It's also in a great location! Thank you Bill and Terri! You have an amazing house!

Fantastic trip, comfy house!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Bill & Terri's River House. There was plenty of room for us to spread out, and it was very well-equipped for all ages and activities. Bill was great to work with - responsive when booking and with follow-up questions. The visitor guide that he provided was very helpful, and made us all want to come back in the summer to bike, hike, fish and enjoy the screen house! All of the ski hills were close by (we went to all but Buttermilk), and we went into town a handful of times to eat, browse, and shop. Dinner at Woody Creek Tavern was fun, and we also enjoyed swimming/hot tubbing at the Snowmass Rec Center. Thanks for sharing your home - we hope to be back!

Loved this house!

  • 5 of 5

Aspen Riverhouse is a lovely, spacious, comfortable, ideally located vacation home. From the fully equipped kitchen and the cozy sunken livingroom, to the giant round dining table ideal for vibrant conversations and the lower level theater and game room, the house was perfect for our group of 13 skiers. The stunning view of mountains and river can't be beat. We will be back for a summer stay next year!

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

The minute we walked into the Riverhouse we instantly felt at home. It is a beautiful, comfortable family home with plenty of room to spread out!! The boys enjoyed the media room and pool table downstairs while we could sit by the fire with music and wine upstairs. The location is truely special...a winter wonderland by the babbling Woody Creek. Less than ten minutes to get back from the Snowmass ski fields and straight into the large private hot tub then only about ten minutes to dinner in Aspen.

Must have a car!

A real family kitchen with the everything you need to cook including the spices! I thoroughly recommend Riverhouse to those who like to be close to the action but just far enough away to truely "get away from it all" in one of the prettiest places on earth.

Serene Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home while on vacation for our brothers wedding. The home is very spacious and is in a great location close to Aspen and Snow Mass! The ammentities were great for all ages. The pool table and numerous books and board games were a great hit! We enjoyed the spa in the cold evenings as well as being so close to the river. We enjoyed listening to the sound of the river and the kids loved playing along it as well. We highly recommend this home!

Perfect for our wedding week

  • 5 of 5

My bride-to-be and I, along with both of our immediate families, stayed at the Riverhouse in mid-June and had a fantastic stay. The house was more than big enough to accommodate us all for dinner and relaxing on the deck when we were all together, but also provided everyone with enough space so that people could do their own thing when needed. Big positives: deck, pool table, and outside area by the river with fire pit.

It was exactly as we had hoped---only positive things to say!
