Overview

Basalt Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Extraordinary 3 Bedroom 3 Bath Log Home With Fabulous Views And Amenities

You have found a 'True Diamond in The Rough'. 'THE CABIN' at Ruedi shores offers everything you would expect in a 1st class fully furnished 2200sq' rustic log mountain home. This is not your ordinary cabin. Nothing was compromised when designing this fully furnished, short or long term, vacation rental. Built in 2006, the home offers brand new furnishings. It was meticulously constructed of hand-hewn Montana timber logs. The 1200sq' Brazilian hardwood deck wraps around the main floor level providing an extraordinary spread for gathering with family and friends while being surrounded by national forest that offers wonderful views of the mountains above and the valley below. The kitchen is complimented by granite counter tops and new stainless steel appliances including a duel fuel Viking gas range. There are two gas fireplaces, one located in the living area and the other in the recreation room on the walk-out ground level. The Recreation room is divided between a beautiful mahogany pool table on one side a 55 inch HD flat screen on the other. The Cabin is also outfitted with WI-FI and DIRECT TV. The home is fully supplied with new quality bedding and linens. The laundry area is equipped with a pair of top of the line Electrolux, large capacity front load washer and dryer.

The surrounding area is a mecca for 'year round' outdoor recreation. If you're looking to get away from it all or simply seeking an area that offers a true Rocky Mountain recreational experience, then you have found it. 'The home sits conveniently above the head waters of the 'Gold Medal' Frying Pan river and Ruedi Reservoir. All personal watercraft are welcome. There is plenty of parking space for multiple vehicles and trailers at the cabin. Ruedi Reservoir offers more then 220 square miles of boating and open water recreation in the summer. While these two highlights are two of the more obvious area attractions, it doesn't stop there. The fall season offers some of the best elk and deer hunting in the state. In addition, the winter months invite world class snowmobiling, cross country skiing and any outdoor winter activity that you can imagine, including ice fishing on Ruedi for that dedicated angler. All of this is conveniently nestled in the tranquil and majestic White River National Forest. 'The Cabin' is an exceptionally scenic 20-25 minutes drive which meanders up the Frying Pan river from the town of Basalt. Bald eagles, Big Horn sheep, Elk, deer and wild turkeys are a common site. Basalt offers excellent dining options, several boutique's for the casual shopper and a choice fly fishing outfitters. There is also a General Store in town to pick up your basic essentials. An additional 10 minutes further down valley the Willet's Town Center offers additional shopping, multiple dining options and a list of retailers including Whole Foods market and City Market for stocking up on your complete grocery list. Aspen and Snowmass are located, "up valley", approximately 45-50 minute drive away from the cabin.

Once you have discovered this true 'Diamond in the Rough' and what the Ruedi/Frying Pan valley have to offer, we are confident you will return year after year to create lasting memory's with friends and family.

****our Goal Is To Provide Everything You Would Expect To Make This One Of The Best Fully Furnished 3 Bedroom 3 Bath Vacation Rentals In The Valley. We Will Make Every Effort To Accommodate Your Needs.****

Great Log Cabin Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This is such a lovely setting above Ruedi Lake, great views from the living areas and the large deck. Upon our arrival, we were delighted to see a full rainbow over the mountains. The owner was so helpful. The cabin was in perfect order, with many amenities, tasteful decor and comfortable furnishings. We grilled steaks our first night. Our grand kids loved the pool table! The guys enjoyed terrific fishing on the Frying Pan River close by. We saw water skiers on the lake. We enjoyed an excursion to the town of Basalt, less than half hour drive on the scenic Frying Pan Road. There is a new Whole Foods Market in the area. Once the kitchen is stocked, there's no need to leave the cabin! This is a perfect place to relax and renew, in a majestic setting.

Very nice accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Cabin at Ruedi Shores. My family of four met another family of four to stay for 3 nights. The cabin was properly outfitted for everyone to have a bed. The kitchen was fully functional to cook any meals. We enjoyed watching the abundance of deer each evening and morning. Although, to no fault of Dan, it was obvious that some occupants do not care for this beautiful property as they would their own home. The next time we are in the area and need accommodations for 8, this will be my first choice.

Gorgeous rental!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved our time here. The pictures don't do this mountain view justice. Along with the breathtaking views, we enjoyed the pool table, hot tub, and grill. The cabin is spacious and beautifully decorated with a modern yet rustic feel. It's located not too far from the town of Basalt, which has great restaurants and bars. We made day trips to Aspen and Snowmass as well. It's a wonderful place!

The most beautiful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived, we were amazed by this pristine, perfectly decorated, beautiful cabin. The floor plan is perfect with 3 floors, including a large comfortable loft. Every room is clean and comfortable with furniture and decor perfectly placed. Not only did we enjoy lounging cozily on the overstuffed sofas in front of the fireplaces (there are 2!), the pool table sure did add some fun, too! The kitchen is great with very nice appliances along with a great breakfast bar. In addition, the location was perfect for our ski days at Snowmass, as well (easy, close drive). We had such a wonderful time, we are planning on returning!

Fabulous winter retreat

  • 5 of 5

Pros - is exactly as described, a modern, beautiful, well equipped, log cabin. Comfortable, all the modern tech, and great views.

Cons - do not rent this cabin in the winter without a 4 wheel drive vehicle. I strongly suggest snow tires. There are several very steep sections on the road to the cabin. The road is plowed regularly, but it is steep.
