The Barbee Cottage is an historic mountain home dating from the late 1880s and with real Aspen history. Located just a short walk from Aspen’s downtown shopping, dining, and nightlife, it is also just about 500 yards from the Silver Queen Gondola and just a couple of blocks to the base of Aspen Mountain’s Lift 1A. This vintage home features a comfortable living area with a wood-burning fireplace and baby grand piano, and a second cozy family room has a flat screen TV. There is also a full kitchen, a dining area for eight, free wireless internet, a washer and dryer, a Weber barbecue just outside, and parking for 2-3 cars. The master bedroom upstairs has a king bed and attached bathroom, and the other three bedrooms upstairs share a bathroom and have one queen, two twins (can be made into a king), and one twin, respectively. There is one bathroom on the main level and one bedroom with two twin beds. Please note, there is a full time caretakers unit associated with the home. Call us, and allow McCartney Property Management’s guest services to open the door to your Aspen experience!
Our family (three generations) stayed from 12/22 -12/29 and really enjoyed ourselves. Would recommend improvements to Wi-Fi which is important to the younger generation and finding out info about local ski runs, restaurants, events, etc. Also recommend improvements to the plumbing. There were issues with water pressure and temperature. Couldn't run dishwasher, washer, and shower at same time. Someone would be in shower and someone would flush toilet and shower would go to scalding or freezing cold. Loved the fireplace and our roaring fires always plenty of firewood. Having Joel there made it great on snow days when snow needed to be shoveled or cleared. Overall really enjoyed our trip and would do again. Location is superb!
I can not tell you how disappointed we were with this property. The decor appears to have not been touched since the 60's. The interior definitely does not match the appearance the pictures give.... Sure the same furniture may be present in the house, but it does not match the quality/appearance given in the photos. The person who took these photos is must be a wizard to hide this horribly dated and worn interior. The whole place had an odd musty odor from being extremely dated. Just like Thomas, the hot water and water pressure was a major issue. The water temp would go from scolding hot to freezing cold randomly during your shower. This place was a complete ripoff, and I would never recommend it to anyone. McCartney Properties should be ashamed for renting this place, and embarrassed that they even represent it.
Most disappointing and embarassing for my guests. The place still had Christmas decorations in place. The kitchen lacked a basic corkscrew and coffee pot filters. The boxspring in one BR was so broken if you got left of center it would flip you out of the bed ( it was my bed, so I am not exaggerating), TV channels were minimal, hot water was difficult to adjust and watch out if someone else was the cold tap. The downstairs BR used a styrofoam sheet as a partition wall to separate it from the TV room ( real tacky). In short, the reality did not measure up to the pics. I was tempted to call someone but my friends went with the flow.
