My family has been coming to Aspen since the mid-1950's, before Aspen was 'Aspen.' My mom and dad fell in love with the mountains, the skiing and the Aspen lifestyle. The house was purchased from the builder in 1978 and has been our family's 'get away from it all' place. My mom and step dad are world travelers and the house is decorated with folk art, rugs and photographs from their travels including Tibet, Africa, Bhutan, Mexico and South America, as well as plenty of Southwestern and native American art, pottery and rugs. My husband, kids and I don't spend as much time there as we would like and have decided to open our home so other people can come and enjoy the truly spectacular views and experience the release of stress that our warm home away from home has to offer.
Sally purchased this house in 1978
There is no other place on earth like Aspen; from the skiing and vast array of outdoor sports and pursuits, to the physical splendor of the terrain, to the fantastic shopping, cultural activities and world class restaurants.

The views from Red Mountain are the best in Aspen! We have a 180+ degree unobstructed views of the Aspen Valley from Independence Pass to Aspen Mountain to the Maroon Bells to Mount Sopris. It is a two minute walk from the house to access the Hunter Creek Trail, a beautiful hike up a mountain stream to a large open meadow and late 1800's ghost town or follow the trail down to town. The house is located in a quiet, uncongested neighborhood of attractive private homes and estates. Wildflowers, birds and butterflies abound in the summer. You can frequently spot deer, elk, foxes and other wildlife at dusk. This house offers the unique opportunity to be close enough to enjoy the amenities of the town of Aspen but at the same time feel like you're really getting away from it all.
This is a wonderful personalized home with a lots of character and amazing views of Aspen. The owner was great to work with and very responsive to any needs. I would highly recommend this as a great vacation stay for anybody looking for a fabulous getaway!
Great house way up on Red Mountain, very comfortably furnished (i.e., actually livable) with a real cook's kitchen. Fantastic views of Aspen Mountain, Maroon Bells and way more. Hunter Creek trail head is walking distance from the house, leads up to even more trails and open air spaces. Great yard for the dogs, one of the few Aspen rentals that allow dogs. We've stayed here 2 summers and will be back!
Sally's Aspen abode could not have satisfied or impressed me more; the view, the serenity, the stone fireplace. The house was designed with the collective in mind. The huge main room with vaulted ceiling and duel stone chimneys (one for the indoor grill no less) create an atmosphere of community. If I'm lucky enough to visit the town again this will be my first reservation, wouldn't have it any other way. Communication was seamless leading up to and throughout our stay. My only hope is that none of you book this place before me whenever I get the chance to come back.
We were looking to get away from the Dallas summer heat and relax in a secluded mountain setting. We found everything we were looking for, and much more, in this property. If you're looking for a comfortable, unpretentious, casual vacation rental property, that feels like a place you might have built for yourself, then this is the place for you. When we first walked in, we went straight to the deck and took in the view, not to mention the sound of the water rushing down the river just a few hundred yards from the house. Our, almost daily routine, was hiking down Hunter Creek Trail, ( 2 minutes from the front door), through a well marked series of trails, all the way to downtown, where we would meet up for lunch with others in our party, then would drive the 7 or 8 minutes back to the house. Then either go fly fishing, white water rafting, golfing........or just driving up to the Maroon Bells, looking for Moose, Bear, Elk, Deer, Fox, etc. We actually had a fox that hung out around the house that we would run into from time to time, as well as deer in the yard and an occasional bald eagle soaring overhead. Even though the house was fairly close to other houses, we still felt very secluded with the dense foliage surrounding the house. The house was very comfortable for the 4 of us, my wife and I in one room, and our son and daughter, each with their own rooms with separate bathrooms. The kitchen is well equipped, however we tend to eat out a lot. If we decide to visit Aspen again, we would definitely like to stay here. The owner was very responsive and helpful. I would recommend to anyone.
We came to Aspen just in time to catch the aspen trees turning gold. It was a magic time to be there. There is nothing like the golden aspens when they turn - they reflect the sun as though they are on fire.
This house is a quick drive up the mountain from downtown Aspen. It affords wonderful views of the ski resorts and is a close drive to all Aspen has to offer.
We used this house as our base to road trip throughout western Colorado and what a treat that was. It is hard going on many of the roads in the rural areas nearby and it was great to get back to this house after a long drive. We would take a dip in the hot tub in the master suite and then cook up dinner in the wonderful gourmet kitchen. The house has everything you could need and Sally the owner was accommodating, responsive and easy to work with.
We highly recommend this house for families looking for a quiet luxury retreat. We hope to be back soon.
My husband and I and our lab were fortunate enough to find this gem!
The views of the mountain are unobstructed. There are fabulous walks from the house, including many of Aspen's best hikes. Hunter Creek Trail was out favorite and we walked it many times.
It is not possible to capture the scope and beauty of this home and its location by photographs.
You will not be disappointed.
The property inside and out was immaculate. The outdoor gardens were beautifully maintained.
I have and will recommend this property to friends and family.
