Why jason chose Northwest Colorado

we love the location and the rustic/modern feel!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for providing such an awesome place for us to unwind with our family! We loved the"feel", perfect ju-ju, just the right amount of Mountain vibe and privacy. We all had a blast! Here is a little gift for the house.

Just Okay

  • 2 of 5

Let me first say that Jason the owner was really nice and I'm glad we were able to stay in your home thank you. If I could rate this 2 1/2 stars above I would have. Not going to lie I was a bit worried the day of check in I had emailed the day before and day of more than once and never heard back. Luckily for me I read the reviews and I knew Jason lived below the house so I went there and he was home for me to get the code to the door. When we pulled up I was worried that the house was going to look like the outside as I was not impressed by the way the outside of the house looked. Needless to say the inside of the house did not reflect the way the outside looked. The inside was very very nice! There was a lot of clutter and stuff outside that made this home not very presentable. We did not cook but if we wanted to we could the kitchen had everything anyone could want. The hot tub and fire pit were great the only thing about the hot tub is there is no lights and on the stairs going up to the tub are some water hoses that we tripped on and for my 70 year old dad he could not see them its kind of a safety hazard. The fire pit was nice disappointed we could not use it in the morning time as water was on each morning at 6-630. Lastly this house was great but my one very big issue was the smell of marijuana coming into the house was not welcome. I'm not sure where it was coming from but it was so strong it caused issues for my 70year old folks and my 2 year old child making them cough real bad. I know marijuana is legal here in CO but it was not something we wanted to smell or have my kids around. Again I'm not even sure if the owner knows this is a problem we were only there 2 days so we just let it go.

Wonderful Stay

  • 4 of 5

The only reason I'm not giving five stars for this property is because of the outside appearance. When my husband and I first arrived at this property, we were a little worried based on the outside appearance. There is a lot of work equipment sitting around (I think the owner owns a construction business), and the trees, grass, and landscaping desperately need to be trimmed/cleaned up; HOWEVER, the inside of this house and the location are a gem! We absolutely loved our stay in Glenwood Springs and this property. The inside is immaculate- it has a chef's kitchen, countless movies, board games, books, and lots of neat stuff from the owners' travels around the world. The home is a short walk to town and the Boy Scout trail just across the street offers unbelievable views of the city and Glenwood Canyon. We saw a BEAR and a gang of turkeys just outside our door. The bed was comfortable. We did not get in the hot tub, so I cannot comment on it. We did use the gas grill two nights and loved the kitchen. I would most definitely stay here again, and I highly recommend the property.... just don't judge it by the outside appearance.

Fantastic Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here while we were in Glenwood Springs! The house was clean with plenty of space for our family! The house is decorated very cute and we thought the kitchen was very well set up for people who like to cook. The backyard was very nice and we made use of the fire pit and the hot tub. The hot tub was not full enough to work properly, but it was still warm and nice. All went well and we truly enjoyed our visit and our accommodations here! Overall a great place to stay!!

Top of the Hill

  • 3 of 5

The house is located at the top of a hill overlooking the city. Beautiful views, however, the house was a lot smaller than we expected. We were crowded, and after several days of snowfall, we got some cabin fever.

Back yard was nice, pets loved it

If the house would have been bigger or not as cramped, we would have enjoyed it more.

Great landlord who lives below on the property. Follows up on all request in a timely manner

Really love this place

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed here three times over the past few years, each time for a week or more. I'm planning to return again next year. I come by train, the very scenic California Zephyr, and Jason has picked me up and dropped me off at the train station, just at the bottom of the hill. I've used one of his bikes throughout the week to cycle up and down spectacular Glenwood Canyon and other scenic rides. Enjoyed using the hot tub on my recent stay and previous visits. Made most of my meals in the well equipped kitchen and ate them on the front deck overlooking the town and the rivers and mountains beyond. You really have a feeling of seclusion and yet the town is just a few blocks down the hill. It's an easy walk, at least the downhill leg, to the Glenwood Canyon Brewpub, or any of a number of other eateries with outdoor seating. Great way to spend an afternoon. Jason has always been very helpful, and I'm looking forward to my return.
