About Barbara Lea

We have lived in Colorado since 1985, though our kids and careers have taken us to Wyoming and the Front Range.

Barbara Lea purchased this house in 1993

Why Barbara Lea chose Glenwood Springs

Glenwood Springs is the perfect small town to live and play in. Centrally located between Aspen and Vail there is something for everyone to do. We lived in this house full time until 2000 and have used it as our personal vacation spot ever since. In 2011 we decided to share it with others.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy walking, biking or snowshoeing right from the house up to Glenwood Adventure Park or down to Two Rivers Park and the river trail system. The house is quiet yet close to everything.

This property is an excellent value for the price. So many things are provided.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the month of June, 2016. It is an excellent location and very close to downtown, but located in a quiet neighborhood. One can view Mt. Sopris from the front porch. Really enjoyed the outdoor firepit and making s'mores with the kids. So many toys provided for all ages. An excellent collection of books are available for all ages to enjoy also. Our favorite places were the front porch for relaxing and the back porch for family dining. The gourmet kitchen is well stocked with all the dishes and cooking utensils one can imagine. The only thing to improve is the cooling. It really gets warm in the summer now, and the units are loud and need updating. I mentioned this to the owner and I bet she makes some changes soon. She is so sweet and really wants her guests to enjoy their stay. I highly recommend this property and hope to return next year!

We stayed two months and had a fabulous time! The home is lovely, well equipped, great views, beautifully landscaped, maximum privacy, immaculate & well prepared for our arrival. We enjoyed covered front deck for morning coffee & wine at evening sunset. Patio with BBQ, another patio with beautiful fire pit ...wonderful outdoor vignettes! Well located with many activities, hiking, biking, and rafting. Nice restaurants in Glenwood Springs, Carbondale, El Jebel and Basalt not even mentioning Aspen. Really loved this place!!!

Beautiful Home with Amazing Outdoor Spaces

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 (4 adults, 4 children) had a very comfortable stay at this lovely Glenwood Springs home. The kids loved s'mores around the fire pit and the spacious areas to play outside, while the adults enjoyed evenings on the front porch taking in the incredible views. The location is ideal; it's private and secluded, yet very close to all of the amenities of the Glenwood Springs area. No question, this property is a gem!

Perfect vacation home for a holiday getaway

  • 5 of 5

Actually, there aren't enough stars in your rating chart to indicate how off-the-chart this accommodation really is. We chose this breathtaking home for our family reunion - one proud mother, 6 grown children+significant others - and it was perfect. The house is so far beyond the pictures here. It is fully equipped with absolutely everything imaginable - more than I have in my own kitchen. There was even a lovely set of festive holiday dishes just made to showcase a Thanksgiving feast! The house is big enough for a lot of people to either be in constant interaction, or find some nook-or-cranny-type quiet place. It's a short drive to the town and hot spring pools, and the view from the porch is lovely.

I'd go back in a New York minute!
