Unbelievable Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I do a ski/fish trip every year and have stayed in a lot of wonderful places, but this is by far the best place we have stayed to date. With it's big open kitchen and great room, to the fun game area in the basement and the many many bedrooms, we lived like kings for a few nights. Peter was very responsive and has set up the house perfect for guests like ourselves. The location is great and quiet and you share the open space with about 1,000 deer. The beauty of the mountains with the wildlife out of every window is very special. I would recommend this house for big groups. We had 11 people staying there and we could have fit another 20 comfortably. Thanks for a great stay Peter!

Fantastic Home!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home with a couple of other families for our kids ski competition in Aspen and it was the absolute perfect set-up and a beautiful house. Gorgeous bedrooms for the parents and a great bunk room in the basement that the kids loved. Every entertainment element (as the name promises) that kept the kids entertained for hours on end. Spectacular setting with deer every night and morning right outside the window. Very well stocked... we brought a couple of crock pots and realized we didn't need any of them. There was a literal "crock pot station" with crock pots lined up in the pantry. The owner (Peter) is a terrific guy. Very helpful and welcoming. The house was prepared like a 5 star villa, clean comfortable and welcoming. He even had a couple of wine bottles, chocoaltes and a lovely welcome note for us. Would absolutely go back. LOVE IT!
