About Horace Newhard

I built the original house with my brother and friends in 1967. We were the first to receive a certificate of occupancy in the newly opened Snowmass Ski Resort. I continue to visit Snowmass frequently with family and friends.

The area is quite beautiful year round with world class sports, art and music activities ongoing. Events are suitable for a mix of ages and abilities.

Horace Newhard purchased this house in 2000

Why Horace Newhard chose Northwest Colorado

I began skiing in Aspen with my brother in 1961, and had the opportunity to get in on the ground floor of Snowmass Ski Resort. My sister owns a place nearby and we created family vacations throughout the year to enjoy the area and each other's company.

Skiing conditions are unbelievably good, with splendid snow conditions and attention to grooming the hills throughout the ski season.

In addition to ski season, Snowmass Village is a lovely get-away for family and friends at all times of the year. Summer season is the time for the Aspen Music Festival and many other events in the area.

What makes this house unique

Ideal climate good skiing year around leisure. Excellent snow conditions are typical during the ski season. Off season offers many options for leisure, such as hiking, golfing, fishing, biking, fine dining, horseback riding, river rafting in summer, the beauty of seasonal changes, and a great place for family reunions.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I have been a enjoying all of the seasons in Aspen and Snowmass since the late 1960s and have stayed in several homes and condos in the area.

My absolute favorite is the Newhard Chalet in Melton Ranch, Snowmass.

The Newhard Chalet, with its expansive views of Owl Creek Road and the Snowmass Club, is modern, comfortable, and outfitted with all of the best amenities. The large kitchen, which is well equipped to handle large groups, and its adjoining dining area, with its two oversized tables and chairs, is the hub of the Chalet.

The entire first floor has soaring ceilings and windows.

There are bedrooms, each with cable TV and baths on all three floors.

The Chalet is within walking distance, via a bike trail on the cul-de-sac, to the City Market of Snowmass and Snowmass Village itself.

Another bonus is the Chalet's hot tub located directly outside of the 1st floor family room

I had the pleasure of staying at the Newhard Chalet during a work retreat. There were only 7 adults staying at the chalet so there was plenty of room for more occupants. The chalet was located just outside of the Snowmass village and in walking distance to the local grocery store. The shuttle bus stop was just across the street for those travelling without a car.

The home was warm and nicely decorated with large open rooms and numerous windows to capture the mountain views. The kitchen was modern and equipped with all of the conveniences one would want to entertain guests or cook an elaborate meal. There was plenty of seating for meals with (2) dining tables and the living room had large comfy couches to relax on. There were additional beds upstairs if needed for larger groups. The downstairs had a large family room for games or TV viewing and just outside was a large, well-maintained hot tub. This was a great way to start or end the day. The deck space was perfect for watching the sunset over the mountains or relaxing to a good book.

My stay at the Newhard Chalet exceeded my expectations and I would feel very lucky to visit the Snowmass area again. It is without hesitation that I would recommend this home for a memorable trip. I can't wait to get back. Thank you for the roomy, yet cozy, accommodations.

Wonderfully furnished with comfortable beds, a fully equipped kitchen, so impressive.

  • 5 of 5

Our party included eight adults and six kids ranging from 16 months to 12 years of age. Reasonable rate, spectacular views, comfortable beds with lovely linens, two living areas to accommodate adults and kids, maintenance help on site (resides in apartment above detached garage), a fully-equipped kitchen with two large dining tables, extra space for parking four cars on-site, good instructions for various functions in the house. Added interest is the historical information about the chalet. Also need to add that the property was as clean and well cared for as any rental property I have visited. The house has a warm and welcoming feel to it. The kids and grandkids are asking when we get to stay in the house again.

A Wonderful Stay at Newhard Chalet

  • 5 of 5

When we booked the Newhard Chalet for our weekend trip to Snowmass we were just looking for someplace large enough to handle our entire family comfortably what we ended up with was a second home. This home is very warm and inviting with everything you can imagine needed to make your stay a memorable event. The location was perfect for us, as it is located in a nice neighborhood that we could take the baby for a walk in the stroller without any problem, and with a shuttle stop at the bottom of the hill Snowmass Village was only minutes away without worrying about parking. The large, fully stocked kitchen is so easy to get around for cooking meals, the dinning area had more than enough seating for game night after dinners and the family room downstairs was great if anyone needed to get away. The hot tub was perfect after a day of hiking around Snowmass Village and the mountain. Whenever we come back to Snowmass we will always try to stay at Newhard Chalet.

Fantastic Mountain Home

  • 5 of 5

This house was wonderful for the large group that stayed here for a long weekend. Plenty of space to spread out and not feel like you were on top of one another; very quiet (didn't hear any noise in the main floor bedroom coming from the living room). Kitchen was well stocked and on-site management was very friendly and helpful. Owner was very responsive and overall wonderful customer service. Would definitely return.

Fabulous family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of grandparents, children and grandchildren. The house was perfect for our needs. It was very comfortable and the proximity to the Snowmass mountain was a huge plus. Having a shuttle stop right in front of the house allowed us great freedom if someone wanted to do something different. The hot tub was a perfect place to be after a full day of skiing. We look forward to returning.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our ski team had a great stay at the Newhard Chalet. The managers were helpful with check in and check out times, and made sure that our group had everything that we needed.

The house was nice for our group of 9, with plenty of beds for everyone, and the living and dining space were great to hang out in and prepare large meals for everyone. They allowed us to use the garage for ski storage and prep which was super helpful.

All in all it was a good stay, we would return!
