About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Entertainment room, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Unsurpassed mid valley location. Riverfront home with private flyfishing. 25 minutes to Aspen or Snowmass, 20 minutes to Aspen Highlands Ski resorts.

Very warm and peaceful home with natural beauty in all directions. Home is situated on a high riverbank with stunning 180 degree views of the Roaring Fork River as it flows through the 5 acre parcel. Unobstructed views of the Elk Mountain Range. Private Gold Medal fishing on the property. Outstanding year round dry fly fishing on the adjacent Frying Pan River. The Crystal River and the Colorado River are also nearby.

The 3800 sq ft. home includes unobstructed views of the Elk Mountains from nearly all rooms. A large den with large screen plasma TV, Blu-Ray, and sound system is central to the three lower floor bedrooms, each of which have a queen bed. The master suite and bath offers a king size bed, privacy and river views. A wonderful screened outdoor living room is perfect for summer evening get togethers. Fall asleep to the babbling of the river. Gorgeous landscaping includes spacious lawns and surrounding pastures. Hot tub overlooking the river.

Local bicycling is second to none with numerous dedicated bike paths. Endless opportunities for outstanding mountainbiking. Bike along the Roaring Fork River to Woody Creek and Aspen. River rafting is a popular activity and a great way to experience the outdoors. Other attractions include numerous superb restaurants and outstanding art galleries. A first-class grocery market, gourmet restaurants and movie theaters are within 1 mile.

Ski Snowmass and other Aspen resorts are an easy 25 minute drive up the highway. Sunlight Ski Resort just 20 minutes away. 1 hour to Beaver Creek and Vail just beyond. Visitors will also appreciate the sleeping comfort associated with the lower elevation (6400 ft. vs 8000 ft. at Aspen) as well as a warmer, sunnier climate.

Great home for a family vacation or a very private getaway.

Abundant wildlife and natural beauty. The surrounding natural features include red rock cliffs set against bluebird skies. Cottonwoods and pinion give way to the higher aspen and pine groves. Bald eagles are seen regularly fishing the river in winter months. Elk and deer are common sightings on the property. This property borders the Rock Bottom Ranch, a 114 acre nature preserve maintained by the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies.

A number of outstanding public golf courses are within an easy drive. Lakota Canyon was recently cited as the number one public course in Colorado. River Valley Ranch is also outstanding as are the Aspen City and Ironbridge courses.

20 minutes to Aspen Airport. One hour to Vail-Eagle airport. 45 minutes to Rifle Jet Center.

The perfect mid valley location. Warm and sunny at 6400 feet elevation. Views range from riparian riverfront and surrounding pinion and red rock up into the aspen and pines on surrounding mountains.

What makes this house unique

An excellent home for a family retreat or romantic getaway. Expansive views of the Elk Mountains from the deck and lawns. Sweeping elevated views of the Roaring Fork River from home and deck perched 60 feet above river level. Elk, bear, bald eagles, osprey and herons are common sightings from the deck.

Beautiful home, super comfortable, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this home and plan to come back! Plenty of room for our two families of 4 - with room to spare! The deck is amazing and being right on the river was such a bonus. The men fished every day and caught many many fish! Great kitchen with quality cookware, loved the gas/wood fireplace! Great entertainment system for movie watching in the evenings -and the hot tub was enjoyed by both kids and adults! Thank you Joe!

Perfect In Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

Not sure where to start, as we enjoyed everything about this home and property! The house is so very comfortable and had everything we needed. My husband and I love to cook, so between the kitchen and grill, we rarely ate out during our week stay. Our dogs had a great time too, exploring the grounds and pasture. We enjoyed taking in the views of the Roaring Fork from the deck and hot tub. It was great to fall asleep and wake up to the sound of the river. You can fish from the property and while secluded, the house is really close to shopping and lots of outdoor activities. The owners are wonderful people to work with so we have already booked our time for next year!

Great place to be!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at this location 3 times in the past 24 months. It's a pleasure every time. It's a great location, great amenities and very comfortable. Sleeps our group just fine. Hot tub is a great treat. Proximity to river, restaurants, etc. just top it off. We will return as often as they allow and will book as far in advance as possible. It's just a really great place. Thanks Joe & Theresa!

Beautiful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with daughter, son-in-law and their dog spent 3 days in this wonderful house. It was the most comfortable, homey vacation rental that we have ever stayed in. It worked out great for us - we hiked during the day and it is close to hikes in Aspen as well as Glenwood Springs. We used the hot tub in the evening. There were lots of movies to watch and the deck is great for sitting out and reading My son-in-law loves to fly fish and it was so easy for him to just walk out back and fish for a while. The kitchen was great - we loved the waffle iron! We would definitely stay here again. Thanks for having us!

Awesome place owned by awesome people!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our 6-person multi-generational group. The kitchen had everything we needed, and the living spaces were large and comfortably furnished. We spent many happy hours around the dining room table Farkle-ing, watching the herd of deer come by each evening and feeding the horses next door apples. After a hard day of skiing, nothing was better than relaxing in the hot tub with a beverage and the stars (or snowflakes, as the case may be). The home is very convenient to both Snowmass and Aspen, and we made the short drive each day for skiing and/or shopping.

Joe and Theresa were helpful at every turn, patiently answering every email (is there a crockpot? Yes - 2), request for information (believe their restaurant recommendations), or panicked phone call (our daughter has locked her bedroom door from the outside!). I believe they sincerely wanted us to enjoy their home, and enjoy it we did. We will be back again, if they'll have us!
