About Paul Rankin

Hello from the Rankin's we would like to invite you to our home in Snowmass Village when we aren't enjoying it ourselves. Fortunately for me my father made his first trip to Snowmass in 1971 with me in tow and I have skied there ever since. I have had fun introducing my wife and kids to the mountain over the last 15 years and thankfully they love to ski. Over the years we have had many trips with many different guests and we would like to think that we have the perfect house in the perfect location. After a year of painting, redecorating and general updates the house has never been better. I hope you get a chance to experience what I think is one of the best ski vacations in the world!

Paul Rankin purchased this house in 1983

Why Paul Rankin chose Northwest Colorado

The perfect ski mountain for all levels of skiers and the perfect location.

What makes this house unique

The absolute best benefit of our house is the proximity to the ski area. Its just across the street and when there is snow on the road you can ski right to the front door!

Great Ski in Ski out in For Large Groups Looking for a Quiet Retreat in the Mountains

  • 4 of 5

Had a group of 12 and we all fit very comfortably with more than enough bathrooms. We had an urgent maintenance request in which the owner was very responsive and was able to address. Loved the hot tub and got great use of the kitchen and fireplace. Ski out was very easy to find. Walk out onto the road and make a left, keep going until you get close to the Hwy style guardrail and enter there. I suggest bringing something colorful to tie around a tree. It will help you to identify the ski in on the way back. The ski in on the west fork trail was not marked very well and took a few tries to get it right. From the top of two creek/elk camp gondola you want to find funnel/funnel bypass run staying to the right. You might also see signs for Cascade run. All of the runs run together for a period, but don't go too far right or you'll get stuck on Cascade. At some point you want to ski past cascade continuing on funnel/funnel bypass and look for a clearing on the right - look for signs for Eddy Out and/or West Fork (the signs are not very obvious). Once you get there make sure to stay on West Fork. When on west fork you just have to keep pulling out your phone to check the GPS or tie a ribbon or something around a tree so you can identify the exit.

Nice Place - nothing extravagant but perfect for a large rental

  • 4 of 5

Great Hot Tub!

If there is snow you can ski on the road right to the front door. Otherwise, it is a very short walk.

I would definitely stay there again.

Great location off West Fork Run. House has everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year renting this home. Great location for ski in/out. About 10 minute drive to Snowmass village, 25 minutes to Aspen. New hot tub to relax after full day on the mountain. Nice TV & fireplace in family room. Wi-Fi. Decor is a little dated, but everything is clean & functionable.

Very good but needs some maintanance/improvements

  • 4 of 5

Highlights/Best Features:

Great common space, bedrooms all with private bathrooms, ping pong table, and washer-dryer all appreciated greatly.

Hot tub was a definite highlight for all.

Location to slopes for ski in/ski out - excellent, but needs better identification for how to enter and exit from slopes (need signage).

Key code entry convenient as family members were coming and going at different times.

Urgent maintenance request - good response.

Response to questions for owner/property manager excellent.

Daily snow removal was prompt, and needed even with large SUV.

Constructive Criticisms/Recommendations for Improvement:

Uneven heating of home - rooms were cold on the bottom floor, with bedrooms hot on first/ground floor.

All bedrooms need humidifiers - only one was present in the entire house.

Slider to the deck/hot tub was extremely hard, almost impossible to open.

Rugs under kitchen table and entry hallway need rubber mats to prevent slip hazard, as one family member had a minor fall.

Kitchen needs more silverware, dinner plates need replacement.

Master bathroom tub has a front/side panel that kept falling over.

Water leak from apartment shower or roof identified, dripping into basement/lower level hallway on floor below - required maintenance call.

Wonderful house for LARGE families

  • 4 of 5

Our large family from Georgia wanted to spend Christmas in the snow together. In order to wake up all together on Christmas morning, we needed a LARGE place with at least 6 bedrooms and extra sleeping areas on couches for all three generations. The Rankin home was perfect in size, space, kitchen layout and location on the mountain.

Erickson Home Services provided us with a live tree strewn with lights, our grocery list stocked in the pantry, and decorations shipped from home tucked under the tree ready for us to celebrate our special holiday. The entire family easily fit in the living room on Christmas morning, tree and all. Watching the grandkids slide down the snow bank into the back yard was so fun to watch.

The ski out was simple. Now, the ski back to the house was a little trickier, but doable. Figuring out where to cut in between the houses took a few tries. When we needed 'dial-a-ride' for kid transportation to ski school, or rides after the lifts closed, we never had a problem.

The hot tub was a fabulous end to each day of skiing. You can''t get better views of the snow and mountains than from a steamy hot tub right outside your kitchen door. The heater was powerful and maintained 101 degrees even when the cover was completely off. The various jet configurations came in very handy. Finding a ping-pong table in the lower level thrilled the grandkids! Playing on it kept them occupied while meals were prepared. The board games were used after dinner and we really appreciated having a family assortment to choose from.

The only disappointment was that in the master bath tub, the jets did not work. Credit goes to Erickson for offering to come and get the jets working, but since working jets did not prevent giving grandkids their baths, we opted not to insist on fixing the problem at Christmas. Minor mechanical problem that did not take away from our magical holiday.

We spent a year planning a Christmas holiday of a lifetime, and were not disappointed! Thank you, Paul Rankin (home owner) and Deb Erickson (home service), for a White Christmas that the Hodges family will never forget!
