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.

This is a great location with a great view and access to the river. The house in wonderful condition and stocked very well. We caught fish right in front of the house, and most mornings included a visit from several deer in the yard. I have been in the Roaring Fork area many times for vacation and this is definitely our favorite place to stay. You will not be disappointed here.

Wonderful house right on the beautiful Roaring Fork River

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this beautiful house for a week. The house has a wonderful deck that allows you to see the river and the lawn and gardens are very inviting. The inside of the house is decorated nicely and has every appliance needed. The master bedroom and newly updated bathroom are very nicely done. This house on the river has fishing adjacent to the property, golf and biking are nearby. Further, the house is located within a mile or two to upscale shopping, including a Whole Foods. If you want to stay next to the river, this house has it all.

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!
