Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Jeff; Thank you so much for renting your house to us and making every thing so easy. In addition to the abundance of space, I was delighted by all the little details I didn't expect, the lovely linens, the Bordeaux glasses, the Zinnias on the driveway, and even the City Market discount card. As a chronic whiner with a creaky back, I have to confess that I slept like a baby on whatever mattress you chose. You really thought of everything.



We had a wonderful week and it was the perfect backdrop for our families (who hadn't met before!) to get to know each other. We will remember our stay here with great fondness- Thank you.



If I talk to anyone headed your way, I will definitely talk up your place, and if you ever need a reference, please don't hesitate to use my e-mail. Thanks again for everything-

Warmly- Suzanne

Great accommodations for a crowd

  • 4 of 5

We were really impressed with the comfortable space for 14 people! We enjoyed the deck and hot tub, and found everything we needed in the kitchen. The proximity to the shuttle stop was very handy, and we loved the walking path along the river. I'm sure it would be great place to stay in the winter as well!

Aspen GET AWAY Ski Trip 2017

  • 5 of 5

Jeff & Judy were excellent to deal with - very accommodating and friendly. No problems whatsoever. Enjoyed the easily accessible free shuttle, hot tub, deck and plenty of room and 6 bedrooms! booked for our annual GUYS ski trip - 9 of us in total. Place was well equipped and comfortable. We had everything we needed to cook and room for relaxation and entertaining. Would definitely recommend it for larger groups needing more space and bedrooms. Would book this property again! Thanks Jeff & Judy for making our trip so memorable!

Best Deal in Aspen

  • 5 of 5

A little more than a mile to the Nell. Great Hot Tub. Solid accommodations. Excellent stereo. Awesome Host's--Jeff and Judy. Accommodated my crew of 12 40+ year old guys on our 14th annual trip. I would absolutely book it again. Thank you Jeff!!

Excellent stay.

  • 5 of 5

There were six of us staying at the home, each with our own comfortable bedroom and nearby bathrooms. The home was fully stocked with all the necessities for a comfortable, stress free stay...we especially appreciated the hot tub after a long day on the Aspen slopes. We also made full use of the kitchen (and the outdoor grill) which had all the necessities for having several "home-cooked" meals at the home. We enjoyed the TV/DVD units, and the Xfinity cable service was excellent.

Although we had a vehicle, it would not have been difficult to walk to the nearby bus stop for a free van ride into the town center, where a transfer could be made to any of the ski areas or other sites. And the van will pick you up at the front door if you call for one and pay $1 for the extra convenience.

Jeff was great. He was easy to contact before and during our stay, and even picked up our first arriving cohort at the airport.

Overall, the accommodations were excellent and we would wholeheartedly recommend this home to any one wanting to stay in Aspen's winter (and other seasons) wonderland.

A Great House

  • 4 of 5

The house is in a quiet section of Aspen. Our party appreciated the neighborhood and the calm nature of the location.

We housed 12 people in the house for a wedding. We had guests from all partts of the US and overseas. The layout of the house worked exceptionally well for a group of this kind. The bedroom layout allowed for privacy, but not isolation. Bathrooms were great and sufficient for all guests. The common areas (living, dining, kitchen) were centrally located and well sized.

The outside deck was a nice "get-a-way" space despite some road noise.

This was an excellent housing solution for our party and Jeff, the owner, was willing and ready to help in any way he could to make our stay comfortable - he ceratinly will go the extra mile.

Perfect location and for a large group! Wonderful Experience!

  • 5 of 5

If you have a budget, and a large group looking for the best location in Aspen, stop looking now because this is the house you are looking for! We wanted a place that was close to town so we wouldn't have to drink and drive, or find parking and conveniently; Jeff&Judy's rental house is on the shuttle bus loop that comes every 15 minutes (to and from town). Skiing was a breeze, and almost a luxury experience.

Having couples and singles in our large group was a total non issue, thanks to all the bedrooms and alternative floor plan layouts Jeff & Judy set up before we arrived.

You get what you pay for, as this is not the fanciest house in Aspen, but it is very pretty, cozy and extremely functional. The new hot tub was amazing to have after skiing, and has a picturesque view of Aspen mountain!

We would love to come back, because not only was the house in the best location but Jeff and Judy were wonderful for work with through the entire rental process. I would highly recommend their rental any day of the week! Hope you have as much fun as we did at this perfect VBRO!
