About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

This top floor, Chateau Roaring Fork corner condo with 270-degree views is located just three blocks from the Aspen Mountain Silver Queen Gondola, City Market and Downtown. The cathedral ceiling and floor to ceiling glass wall make it feel even larger than it is. From the spacious living/dining room you are treated to views of Aspen Mountain; the Master Bedroom offers views of the Roaring Fork River and Independence Pass. This beautifully furnished mountain home, has under gone a complete designer remodel. And presently, the condominium complex is also undergoing a complete modernization of the exterior façade and interior hallways, which will give the complex a modern look. Anticipated completion is Christmas 2017.

We designed our condo as we wanted it for ourselves, and hope that our guests have similar tastes. The floor to ceiling glass on the south and west sides of the dining room have an unobstructed view corridor of the Aspen mountain and the Gondola. Skiers go by as you are enjoying your morning coffee. Our unit, and deck is the best location from which to watch Aspen's renowned fireworks displays.

The master bath has a radiant heated floor and a shower with two shower heads and a window. The view from one shower head is Little Nell and the Gondola, and from the other shower head is the Roaring Fork River and Independence Pass. Our goal was to capture the spectacular views and location; while stressing comfort, coziness and convenience.

The kitchen and dining room feature granite countertops with a matching granite table for eight. There is a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, including cherry cabinets, a large gas range, and all new stainless steel appliances with a convection oven/microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator with icemaker, a separate wine cooler and a gas grill on the deck.

The living room has a gas fireplace inserted in an artist designed tile chimney and a flat screen television with DVD. You relax on a large, upscale leather couch, with both cove and Italian glass lighting fixtures.

The unit is fully serviced by Wi-Fi, allowing you to work comfortably on your laptop. Comcast cable to all of the televisions includes HBO and On Demand.

The Master Bedroom has a king size bed with a superfoam mattress, a flat screen television, an I-Pod docking system with a clock radio and a wall mounted fountain.

The other two bedrooms have wall mounted flat screen televisions with DVD's, I-Pod docking system with clock radios and two extra length twin beds. At your request, the twin beds can be joined and set up as a king size bed.

Your stay includes MAID SERVICE with ABI, THE BEST HOUSEKEEPER IN ASPEN! Fresh towels and linens are provided daily, and sheets are changed after three days. There is a VOIP telephone, allowing you to call wherever. There is also a full size washer and dryer, and a Rinnai Instant hot water system assuring that you will never run out of hot water.

The Chateau Roaring Fork has the largest pool in Aspen, accompanied by two large hot tubs.

The hot tubs are great meeting places in which to soak after skiing, and a wonderful amenity in the summertime also. There is also a sauna, a small workout room, and community access to computers in case you didn't bring your laptop.

The rules of the Condominium Association prohibit you from bringing any Pets. Management vigorously enforces The NO-PET rule.

About James

We met on a chairlift on Aspen Mountain in 1974. We live in Colorado, and so come up often, skiing and snowshoeing in the winter, hiking, riding our tandem bike (the adjoining picture of us with our tandem is an early fall ride to Snowmass), enjoying the music festival in the summer and relaxing by the pool complex at our place. A designer remodel was completed with the goal of making our unit casual, comfortable and inviting. After an active day we often times grill on the barbecue on our deck, a wonderful place from which to toast the sunset and appreciate what a wonderful place Aspen is year 'round.

James purchased this condo in 1986

Why James chose Aspen

We had owned another condominium about a block away from this one since 1972. It did not have the open sunny feel we now enjoy, nor did it have the spectacular views that we always coveted in this Chateau Roaring Fork unit. When this high ceilinged, south facing unit, with 270 degree views including both the Roaring Fork river and Aspen mountain came available in 1986 we jumped on it. We knew that its sunny exposure with all day sun, and high ceilings made it very special. We were right.

What makes this condo unique

Now that we have been renting the condo ourselves for the past several years we have come to appreciate from our guests feedback, that they love the same things about our condo that we do. The bright open feel of the condo, with it's unobstructed view of Aspen mountain, the convenient location to walk everywhere, the wonderful housekeeping services provided by Abi, and how comfortable our unit is. And,they've pointed out to us what a better, more comfortable experience condo represents compared to other similarly priced condominiums they've stayed at in Aspen.

Very nice, and close

  • 5 of 5

This was a terrific property to stay in. Very nice, close to market, gondola and bus, and spectacular views. Most importantly, James was a terrific host - accommodating, thoughtful and helpful. We would absolutely try to stay here again.

Just wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We, 6 adults, were for the Ski World Cup Finals in Aspen. The location is very good. Only a quick walk to the town and restaurants, the City Market, the ski lift and the stores, quietly located at the end of a street. In front there is a bus stop, with which you can also use the free shuttle bus. The view from the deck is wonderful. You can make a barbecue with a view of the mountains. All the amenities in the condo are superb. The beds are all comfortable and in every bedroom is a TV and a lot of space in the wardrobe. The daily excellent maid service, the well-appointed kitchen, the fireplace in the living room and the large dining area made our stay very special and comfortable. James, the owner, is very helpful and the overall handling was very simple. A really great place to stay in Aspen.

Thank you James, for making our stay in Aspen to such a fantastic experience and Aspen is really magical ;-)

Great Aspen apartment

  • 5 of 5

I can highly recommend this apartment. It has a beautiful view, you can even see skiers on the front slopes and the gondola. The bedrooms are all comfortable with plenty of wardrobe space. The bathrooms are very practical. The kitchen is very functional and there is everything you need to cook a hearty family meal. The apartment is serviced regularly which is wonderful. The apartment is a short walk from town and is therefore very quiet. I will definitely be returning, hopefully sooner rather than later. Thank you James for making our Aspen experience so easy. You were more than helpful.

We have stayed in VRBO rentals all over the United States and Europe and this is the first one I have felt compelled to review. We took a family vacation to Aspen over the Christmas holiday. We were traveling with two children aged 8 and 10 and my parents. This was our first trip to Aspen. We found this rental on the VRBO website and chose it because of the several 5-star reviews and because of the location, size (3-bedrooms), and luxurious amenities. LOCATION: Outstanding. Steps to all the downtown Aspen restaurants, shopping and ski lift. The views from this condo are gorgeous. There is a large grocery store within walking distance. AMENITIES: Outstanding. This is a fully equipped condo with top of the line appliances including high end LG washing machine and dryer as well as Weber grill on the deck. Beautiful and spacious dining area. The furniture and décor in this unit were clearly not purchased with the intentions of renting in mind. The feeling is more of visiting a family or friend’s condo than a rental. The gas fireplace is a pleasure to relax in front of after a long day skiing. Each bedroom has a television which worked out wonderfully for our kids who wanted to watch movies in the evenings after dinner. The unit has two bathrooms – both very modern and recently upgraded. There is a heated swimming pool which is open year around which we unfortunately did not have time to use, but looked very clean and well maintained. The unit comes with parking which is important, given the downtown location. I cannot say enough about this condo. The pictures do not do it justice – the views are spectacular and the unit has everything you could possibly need during your stay. The owner was extremely helpful with money saving tips and restaurant recommendations. We dined at both recommended restaurants and were not disappointed. This is a large, three-bedroom corner unit on the top floor that has been renovated from top to bottom. It is also very competitively priced-just look at the prices of hotel rooms located just blocks away! The owner supplied us with a welcoming packet and very clear instructions on how to access the unit as well as a detailed map of the area. The daily maid service was also a very nice perk! We would definitely stay here again!

Everything about this place awesome!

  • 5 of 5

I rarely write reviews but this place is rave worthy! It is probably the best vacation rental in which we have stayed! James’ (owner) attention to detail is impressive – the daily maid service with a housekeeper who gives a thorough cleaning every single day, the memory foam mattress, the master shower with double shower heads, the fully stocked kitchen, the beautiful art work, the comfy leather couch, the fireplace already set on a timer. It all makes for a comfortable and luxurious stay. The condo is beautifully decorated, updated and kept meticulously clean. It’s a perfect location at the quiet end of street but so close (several blocks) to gondola and downtown Aspen! And James feels you like an old friend. He is easy to deal with, fun to talk to and full of great suggestions to help make your stay even better.
