Great location and loved the fenced in yard!

  • 5 of 5

Great little house for a weekend getaway. We were able to walk into town, but do note that it's a very steep, 5 blocks or so back to the house, so you'll get your workout on the walk home! The fenced in backyard was great for the pups and having the 2nd bedroom was perfect for our little one. It was nice having coffee already there for the morning after a late arrival to the house - thank you!

Hot tub

  • 5 of 5

Very cozy. Kitchen is a good size with dishwasher and garbage disposal. Plenty of cookware. Hot tub was awesome. We arrived late an were greeted by the sound of a yappy small dog, I think he lives below this property. Neighborhood is super close to downtown Glenwood Springs, very walk-able. Location and house could be classified as rustic. This place did have all of the amenities. Additionally the owner was extremely responsive to all of our questions and needs. I would book this again. There is a previous review about a faint yet distinct aroma, which was right on the money. It is Colorado.

Great location, quality host

  • 5 of 5

This ended up working out better than anticipated, located across the street from the beginning of the Scout Trail and just a few blocks from downtown, I did not move my car for the weekend as I was able to walk or run everywhere I wanted. Plenty of space for my group and quick response when we had difficulty using the dryer.

Had a great and relaxing time at this property.

  • 4 of 5

We had a very relaxing time at this property. It had everything we needed. My only issue was the constant lingering smell of "legal" in Colorado. I get big headaches from it and so I was constantly popping Advil. This however would not deter me from booking again! The hot tub was one of the best features!!

Better than a five star hotel

  • 5 of 5

Wow this little house is awesome we arrived late on the first night and still have some relaxing time in the hot tub, my brother joined us on Saturday and I told him to stay with us in the House since there is two bedrooms and my wife and I stay in the Hawaii room with the kids, after being out most of the day we come back to the house and we did a barbecue in the yard it was a little cold so we use the fire pit and we stay outside till almost midnight around the fire having an awesome time, our wife’s love the house too because they find everything they need in the kitchen and the house is equipped with everything we need, in Sunday morning we sadly have to go and my kids came to me and said daddy can we stay here longer we love this house, and that means a lot. Also before we leave the house the owner stop by and say that there was no rush to leave the house cause nobody was checking in after us on that day but we have to go because we have to visit some other places in Glenwood Springs and we have to drive back home to Denver but we will love to stay here again next time we go back to Glenwood Springs

Our beach is the world Famous hot springs pool!
Car: not necessary

We are perched above town with a nice view of the pool, the rivers and the hotel colorado. We have a great trail access to the 'boy scout trail' , a very popular trail for hiking, biking and dog walking.

You can walk to anything downtown in less than 5 min. Its a great location out of town but almost intown closeness. 'world famous' hot springs pool and the 'Glenwood caverns adventure park' Just a short 5-10 min walk and even quicker on a bike. Train station and majority of Glenwoods restaurants and bars just 4 blocks away. Our location rocks!
