Perfect and amazing

  • 5 of 5

This house was great for our family! Amazing views from the huge deck and such a peaceful setting relaxing on the comfy outdoor furniture! Perfect summer getaway! Felt on top of the world while playing badminton on the lawn and watching the hawks soar! House accommodated our 12 family members with ease and the kitchen with the chef's stove made meal prep easy!

AMAZING

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this house is amazing! The floor plan especially the second kitchen & living area downstairs was perfect for lovers and two "wanna be chefs" that despise sharing kitchen space :-). It is like an apartment!!! The master bedroom, serenity. The view of Snowmass mountain from "the bed" , fireplace & steam shower made me want to forgo skiing.

The owners have done a phenomenal job with decor, maintaining cleanliness & making the very spacious home feel cozy. The personal escort to the home added to our amazing experience we had in Snowmass.

There are only two regrets...I wish I would have built in more time to enjoy the beauty of the home instead of running off to the slopes; I missed not having a jacuzzi. I understand the home has one now. The drive used for sledding more than made up for not having a jacuzzi!! So much fun!!

Two thumbs up on this rental home. You will NOT be disappointed.

Incredible Aspen Rental

  • 5 of 5

From initial contact through the very end of our stay, this was an amazing experience. They accommodated our late night arrival, and it's clear that every effort has been made to make this house a wonderful, comfortable, and fun experience for guests. The house is stunning, and the views are breathtaking from just about every room!! The beds are also very comfortable, the house/kitchen has everything you can think of & everything is well-maintained/clean. Definitely a great place to stay while enjoying the different slopes in Aspen & we hope to return.
