I am 65 years old and have fallen in love with this Valley. I brought my children here when they were young and now one lives in the area. My grandchildren enjoy many activities which are available in this area.

I have been coming to the Roaring Fork Valley since the early 70's. I have found the gems in this Valley are the people and the small towns with character and charm. Be careful, as once you have visited this area, you will want to come back again and again!

This was our second time to stay in this home. We love it! Very comfortable, all the amenities of home, great location and fantastic view! The home is clean, well maintained and owner is very much committed to making sure your stay is perfect! The deck with a view of Mt Sopris is hard to beat and the perfect place for a relaxing dinner! Love the hot tub too especially since we hike and ride everyday while we're there. Great cycling and hiking trails nearby. Carbondale is a friendly, quaint town with some great restaurants. This has become our favorite vacation spot!! Thank you Frank for opening your home!
Loved the house, very clean ,view was amazing. Frank, was very helpful with all the suggestions. The food in the near towns is excellent. My wife and I loved the drive to Aspen. Thank you frank for keeping this property in excellent conditions.

We had an amazing time at the property and couldn't be happier. I felt like the pictures did not do the place justice- Mount Sopris was even more amazing in person! Loved the quaint kitchen with blue cabinets. Had everything I needed for cookware, plates, spices, etc. The hot tub at night under the stars was a blast and we had lots of tracks to check out from various critters in the mornings. We saw mule deer, white tailed deer and owl while there. I enjoyed speaking with Frank, the owner, who was so helpful and always accessible. We had everything we needed at the house and were very comfortable. Some houses we've rented skimp on towels, blankets, etc. This house was not the case. Everything you need is there and the place was warm, inviting and felt like home.The steam shower in the bathroom was a joy after a long day too. We also enjoyed the fireplace, and the cozy nook area to watch movies with wood stove burning. The floor to ceiling windows in the living room/kitchen overlook the gorgeous view- great for eating breakfast and gazing out over the mountain. In the winter, I'd say you definitely need 4-wheel drive as the driveway is very steep. We enjoyed Village Smithy for breakfast in town and had the best blueberry corn cakes. About 10 min drive and so worth it. We were close to Snowmass and also went to T-lazy snowmobile tours at Maroon Bells (about 45 min in good weather) which was the highlight of the trip. I thought this home rental was a steal of a deal and hope to be back soon!
The whole family of six would highly recommend this home/cottage for a place to rest and recharge in the Rockies. It is close to Sunlight Ski Resort(for less expensive skiing) as well as the Aspen/Snowmass resorts. After a day of skiing enjoy the hot tub and view the stars +/- 7000' above sea level without the crowd. Reasonable shopping and a Whole Foods are just 10-15 minutes away.
This home is well equipped with all the comforts of home. The hot tub is amazing on chilly nights. Abundant wildlife to view ( deer, turkeys and even the friendly woodpecker ). Frank is the most helpful owner I have dealt with on VRBO and goes out of his way to make everything perfect. Cant wait to return,
We definitely hope to return to this lovely home, with its great views of Mount Sopris. We had fun cooking (the kitchen is well-equipped) and hiking - Carbondale offers relatively easy access to many great hikes (four-wheel drive best for a few of the further ones in Basalt). We highly recommend this home - having stayed in MANY Home Away and VRBO apartments, condos and houses over the years, I will say this is one of my top two favorites. Thanks, Frank and Mandy, too for your prompt responses and tips!
