Overview

Northwest Colorado House Rental Photos and Description

6 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, Sleeps 13

Enjoy yourself at our mountain retreat in a beautiful Snowmass Village Colorado! Galliwest was rebuilt and doubled in size in 2010. Located just above the Elk Camp gondola mid-station, it has ski-in ski-out access. Summer guests use some of the country's best mountain biking and hiking trails! It now has 4 master bedrooms with king beds, ensuite baths, and HD flat screen TVs, plus 2 smaller bedrooms. and 5.5 baths + powder rm, not counting the attached caretaker unit. It is on Woodrun I, the first and most prestigious of the on-the-mountain private housing areas in Snowmass. Snowmass is the largest and most popular mountain in the 4-mountain Aspen complex.

An elevator in the stairwell rises from the heated 2-car garage and mudroom/ski storage area on the first floor to the 3 upper floors.The living-dining area on the 4th floor opens onto large front and back decks. A large fully equipped kitchen invites multi-cook meal preparation and communicates with a dining area that has a long table seating 12-14.

There is a large living space that is separated into a comfortable fireplace area (perfect for relaxing after long days exploring & skiing) and a TV room. High ceilings and top to bottom windows make it a spectacular living space.

On the 2nd and 3rd floors, there are 4 large front bedrooms, with king sized beds, flat screen televisions, en suite bathrooms, and sweeping valley views. Two of them open onto balconies or decks. Two have 2-person hot tubs in the bath. Two have large walk-in showers. All of the furniture, fixtures, bedding, beds, appliances, flooring, etc. is new. Two smaller back bedrooms, one with two twin beds, one with a queen and a twin, are most often occupied by children or young adults and have beautiful serene views into the forest behind the home.

There is a large office area on the 3rd floor, with two long desks, wifi, a computer and printer/scanner/fax.

There is a fully equipped laundry area on the 2nd floor, with a laundry chute down from the 3rd flr.

A brand new outdoor hot tub offers great views and relaxation!

The unit is ideally suited for extended multi-generation families, like our own, or for 2-3 families that enjoy vacationing together, or four-five couples.

About Owner

Four generations of the Gallistel family have loved this Snowmass house. We built the original house in 1968 when Snowmass ski lifts opened, and renovated it in 2010, doubling the size and multiplying amenities. Dr. Lucie Gallistel Seward recently took over as managing partner from Dr. Charles Gallistel. We offer our guests a fabulous experience in hopes they will enjoy it as much as we do and come back year after year. Our family came to Aspen every year beginning in 1953. Dad and Mom skied well into their 80s and the younger generations share their lifelong enthusiasm.

Why Owner chose Northwest Colorado

Galliwest house will be your first choice because of its ideal location on Snowmass Mountain. The elevator is a popular feature for reaching the top floor with its magnificent views. Families love that individual skiers or groups can leave and return on their own schedules. Ski down to the Elk Camp Gondola or Snowmass base village from Hidden Lane; ski home again for lunch or a hot tub. Summer is also fabulous at Galliwest, with hiking, biking, golf, tennis, fishing, swimming and many other activities, capped off by evening performances of the Aspen Music Festival.

What makes this house unique

Unique benefits of Galliwest include the three hot tubs (two inside, one outside), an elevator, patios and balconies on all floors, heated garage, dedicated caretakers next door, stone fireplace and fine furnishings and art work.

Reviewer Comments:

We were very happy with the house, location, amenities. The only concern was the parking for the large parties, but that turned out not to be a problem due to road space available and shuttle/taxi service. It had everything you could want in kitchen equipment. The only concern was the lack of sturdy bars in showers and bath for my handicapped husband. Some of the bathtub sides were too high for him to get in.

Reviewer Comments:

My family and I stayed at the Galliwest Home a few weeks ago for our first summer vacation together in the mountains. It was lovely!!! The views from the balconies of the home were amazing and made for the perfect place to relax and unwind each evening. The setting was perfect -- on a very quiet and private street surrounded by trees. In fact, you could access many great hiking trails not far from the front door step. Though it felt remote, the house was actually conveniently located not far from Snowmass Village and also about a 8-10 minute drive from downtown Aspen. There were three couples in our group and one additional adult and everyone was able to spread out and relax in their own private, nicely appointed bedroom with their own private bathroom, yet we all were able to enjoy each other's company in the main living space on the top floor as well where we cooked, played games and even made a fire nearly every night in the wood burning fireplace! Although we were active and outdoors most of our trip, we equally enjoyed the time we spent at this one-of-a-kind home that you can tell has been lovingly preserved by the owners and wonderful caretakers for many years. We feel so fortunate to have made our own memories here and look forward to staying at Galliwest House again sometime!

My wife and I were in need of a place to host 13 people for our small wedding. After searching for a few days we stumbled upon Galliwest and contacted Darci who was extremely helpful in assisting us in booking details. We stayed for 3 nights and had a fantastic time! We would recommend Galliwest any time of year!

Excellent vacation; great property. Only problem is the short walk to "ski in/ski out" which at the end of the day is a bit stressful. Otherwise, no complaints !!!
