About Alexandra/Stefan (Owner)

Brought up in the hotel and restaurant business and over 50 years of vacation rental experience we understand what our guests are looking for.

Why Alexandra/Stefan (Owner) chose Northwest Colorado

Because we care very much that our guests really have a wonderful time when they come to stay with us.The property is one of only 11 properties that is actually at river level. We think that our animals, the 62 ducks, frogs, daily visits from "Big Boy" the heron, the horse who thinks he is a dog and plays with a live bear (see youtube) and our dogs make it a fun place to stay as well.

What makes this apartment unique

On the 40 mile stretch of the Roaring Fork, this home is right on the river's edge. This is one of the few properties where the bike path and irrigation ditch are NOT between the home and the river.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is my third stay here. I come here to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, Hong Kong to be precise. I usually leave as fit as fiddle after my wonderful bike rides up and down the valley, the wonderful clean air and all round healthy life style. I sleep so well in that oh so comfortable bed. Listening to the River at night lulls me to sleep. My children come with me sometimes and discover something new each time I come. Can't wait to come back!

Very special place

  • 5 of 5

This place is so wonderful I do not want to write a review as I want to keep it a secret! The setting is lovely, the sound of the Roaring Fork at night a restful sound, Stefan and Alexandra the ideal hosts and Wasabi and the dogs great companions. There is nothing I would change and nothing to improve!

Quiet, serene and beautifully located on the river

  • 5 of 5

Its ideal for people that want to be left alone to enjoy the beautifully kept dwelling which has river frontage on the roaring fork. The owners Alexandra and Stefan are easy going, eager to help but discreet.

You have all you need at hand and close by all the shopping. If you like walking or riding a bike, there is 80Km of trail right outside the door and if you like skiing its a 20 minute drive to Sunny mountain or 35 mins to Snowmass/Highlands or Aspen.

The property is tucked away, so no noise but if you need it then its a 5 min drive to the Carbondale or a 15 min walk to the local bars.

I highly recommend a visit.
