This very charming two-bedroom, two-bath Guest house is located on one of the most scenic by-ways in the State of Colorado and is quaint from head-to-toe! The Hummingbirds are incredible. They migrate here from South America to breed in the summer.The wild life is abundant. There are deer, elk, foxes, etc.
The views are amazing and all the other gifts shared with us by Mother Nature are breathtaking. This property was used as a very successful Bed and Breakfast from 1994 to 2003. The guest house is separate from the main house and consists of a bedroom and bath with a shower on the main floor with a private entrance and small sitting deck. It has a queen bed.

About Judie M. Schmit - Owner/Manager
I bought this place to open as a Bed and Breakfast in 1994 and enjoyed the guests and life as an Owner /Operator. I moved to Redtone in 1989 from Missouri after several trips here in the 3 previous years. I sold real estate at first but then took a job at the Redston Castle which was then called Cleveholm Manor. After working there at the front desk , I took on the position of Caretaker with my husband. That is where I got a lot of experience and decided to open up a Bed and Breakfast. I sold our home in Crystal River Park and bought this wonderful property. I have lived here since then. I now work as a night auditor at the Days Inn in Carbondale and have work there for many years. This area which is 25 miles from Carbondale and 35 miles from Glenwood Springs and an hour from Aspen and Snowmass is worth the drive as I never get tired of the beauty up here and the peace and serenity of the area. Neither will you. The mountain views from the deck and the Aspen and Spruce and Pine trees are gorgeous.

Why Judie M. Schmit - Owner/Manager chose Carbondale
There are so many reasons why I chose this property, but the main reason was because it was perfect for having guests get away from the busy life they lead. Access is easy. Privacy of backing up to forest service. Wildlife .It is located halfway between Redstone and Marble, the two towns that vacationers come to this area to visit. Not only can one enjoy the Crystal River Valley but one also has access to all that the Roaring Fork Valley has to offer too.
What makes this Cottage unique
Redstone Castle tours, Town of Redstone with its unique shops and restaurants. The marble quarry with the White Marble that was used in the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the Lincoln Memorial and many other famous buildings. It is a great place to use as a base for exploring venues like Aspen, Snowmass, Glenwood Springs, Crested Butte, and Gunnison. There are special activities going on all year in this area. Redstone is a quiet respite from cellular interruption.

Cozy, comfortable vacation house
I've rented vacation homes in the Redstone/Marble area regularly for the past 10 years. McClure House stands out as a favorite! It's immaculate, tastefully decorated, superbly equipped and a great location for those visiting Marble or Redstone. Lovely flower beds and colorful hanging baskets add to the charm. Hummingbirds love it too. The feeder situated right outside the window allows for intimate viewing of 6+ hummingbirds at the same time. Loads of blankets, towels, lamps, dishes, pots and pans, sundries and cooking basics (and beyond.) The owner is charming and accommodating. A definite repeat.
Thank you so much for the great review. I enjoyed having you as my guest . You have a wonderful family and I was happy to meet your son and wife and grandchildren. Emma was also sweet.
Hope to have you as a guest again.
This is my second time staying here and I really like it.
Quiet, cozy spot. Everything you need, dishes, glasses, pots and pans, towels, shampoo, conditioner, soap, salt, pepper, sandwich bags, and plastic wrap! Beautiful views, lots of hiking.
Well appointed house conveniently located near Marble. Very comfortable for four people.
Beautiful setting, close to Marble, Roaring Fork valley and McClure Pass. Fully stocked kitchen, just bring food. Owner very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend.
We loved our 6-night stay at McClure House! Nicely laid out, wonderfully comfortable, and easy to access! The beds were comfy, the amenities easy to use, and the owner so helpful and friendly!
Loved the peace and the views!
