Camilla, your hostess, was once a teacher of history, English, and political science in Aspen. This circuitously led to the establishment of a very unique, specialty restaurant in the early 1970′s.
Picturesque and unusual, this restaurant was featured nationally in magazines and newspapers as advertisement for Aspen’s community and ambiance. Following the sale of this business were some years involved in Medieval and Renaissance art and designing silk clothing and jewelry in India and Hong Kong. International experience and a deep love for “adventure” in faraway places culminated in the development of Elephant and Associates – an adventure travel company specializing in Nile River trips on King Farouk’s old paddle boat.
African safaris, from camels to treks both in Kenya and Kashmir, and to remote regions like Ladakh, added immense learning. Scuba diving – the Red Sea being a favorite – biking in China and Europe and in the 90′s, a working partnership on a charter yacht in the Caribbean on board a 75 NZ sloop satiated some of the wonder lust. An infinity for diverse cultures, education, adventure, and love of people has settled into the spice, decor and “hominess” of CasaCamilla.
Casa Camilla – Aspen is a private family residence which is made available for seasonal rentals.
The properties are filled with original art and artifacts from around the world. This may not be an appropriate residence for families with children from age 1 1/2 to 18. Please call to discuss.
All items are inventoried between guest stays. Any damages or missing objects will be deducted from the guest’s credit card or cash deposit. Please leave this house as you found it so others and yourself may enjoy this special place in the future.
We love dogs, and they are welcome to stay so long as they are mellow.
This property is 3 to 15 minutes from all 4 Aspen ski areas. We are also near many bike trails as well as a bus stop. The property has a fishing island with a beach, fire pit and lounge chairs on the Roaring Fork River
We had the great pleasure of enjoying paradise on the river at this private Aspen home. Camilla was the epitome of graciousness and friendliness. We call her our friend now. Our dog was happy with the arrangement as well. He gained two friends, Dolce and James Brown, and wants to visit them again as soon as possible. He liked the beautiful, open grounds where he and his friends romped every day. We will return again and again to this lovely hide-a-way. It is close to everything and has every amenity you could desire. It is the Crème de la Crème in our book of stays in Aspen.
If you're looking for a superbly appointed home nestled in a tranquil setting off a wooded river bank, Casa Camilla will delight you. Our stay in September 2011 was much too brief. We took advantage of all amenities including the well-stocked kitchen and cozy fireplace, the moonlit-filled deck with grill, hot tub and outdoor fireplace, the vast library and grand piano.
If you do not find serenity and happiness here, you have failed to embrace the character and spirit of the home and it's breath-taking natural surroundings. Two docile and adorable canines live onsite and are happy to share their home with you in return for a little praise and affection during chance encounters. Their owner ensures they do not wear out their welcome! :)
The home's short distance to Main street Aspen and all the wonderful sights and sounds it has to offer is truly negligeable - you'll appreciate being off the beaten path. If you like what you see in this listing's photos, don't pass Casa Camilla by - there are too many of us who have enjoyed its offerings and are eager to return when openings are available!
For our family, Casa Camilla was an extraordinary experience for our annual ski trip this year. We ski every year for 3 weeks or more in Colorado with another couple. We were tired of being cramped in a 2 bedroom condo and we have never found a large space in downtown Aspen that was affordable. The main house of Casa Camilla is very spacious with a large, well-stocked kitchen, many rooms with nooks and crannies and over-stuffed comfy chairs and sofas, a grand piano, floor to ceiling windows that provide great views, beautiful art and rare antiques, and a lovely “landlady” who is available to meet your needs. The setting is lovely with a river running in the backyard and the entrance to Snowmass is about a mile away. We prefer to have our own rental car but the bus stop on the main highway is only 2 to 3 blocks from the house if needed. I highly recommend Casa Camilla if you are interested in space, charm, and unusual beauty for your ski vacation.
We had a relaxing stay at this home which is charming and very lovely. The house is flanked by a fountain in front and a river in back. The river is a river it is not a trickling stream. There is plenty of nature to enjoy- peaceful. The owner is so happy to make your stay as wonderful as possible. It is equipped with everything you could possible need for your stay, including 2 TV's for the kiddos, a hammock etc. We enjoyed being a quick drive to town but coming back to a serene retreat.
Casa Camilla is a magical place unlike any other place we have stayed. The tropical guest house is absolutely amazing. It is beautifully furnished, quiet, and peaceful. We would have stayed for an entire month if we could have. The tranquil atmosphere of this incredible place can only be matched by its wonderful owner, Camilla. Ms. Camilla is the quintessential hostess. She is a lovely, intelligent woman who has traveled the world and is willing to share her stories and treasures with anyone who is interested. Our whole family absolutely loved her, and we can't wait to visit again next year!
