Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, 7 Sleeps Home Close To Downtown Glenwood Springs

This home, built in 1941 by the local pharmacy owner, has been restored to its original, cozy mid-century beauty with additional amenities. You can feel the happy family times in this house. June and Ward Cleaver would be proud.

On the main floor, there is the living room, dining room, kitchen, one bedroom with a queen bed and full bath. A half-bath is near the kitchen. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms (one with king bed, one with two twin beds and one with one twin) and one bath with separate shower and tub. An ample, fenced back yard provides safe romping grounds.

Two blocks from the Roaring Fork River with its extensive bike paths, and four blocks from downtown, our home is centrally located with easy access to shops, restaurants, hot springs, spas, ski resorts, adventure parks, hiking trails, rafting, and... Shall I go on? There is so much to do in Glenwood Springs.

About Donna Gershten

My mother and I live on a small organic farm in Colorado with my husband, two dogs and four Guineas. Originally from North Carolina, I came to Colorado forty-years ago where I married and settled. My mother joined us twelve years ago.

Donna Gershten purchased this house in 2012

Why Donna Gershten chose Northwest Colorado

On first walking through the front door, this house felt like home to us, as if the people who had lived there were old friends, and we could remember the happy times. My mother bought the house tout suite. Not bad for ninety-three!

There is so much to love about Glenwood Springs:

good restaurants, the hot springs, great skiing and rafting, cultural events--all in an established community that is proud of its history and natural beauty.

What makes this house unique

Location! While we have two private off-street parking spaces, you could easily park your car and walk, bike or bus to most any activity. We are close to downtown in a quiet neighborhood with a large fenced yard for your family.

Clean and cozy

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, well kept home. Charming and cozy. It does have old home quirks but those did not interrupt our vacation at all. Neither my husband or I could quite figure out the oven. The selector knob worked just fine but the temp knob did not. I had brought a lasagna to bake but we just went out instead. Not a big deal. Overall, I would come here again. Also, very close to town so we walked to all the restaurants. Amazing! I wonder if the homeowner will let us bring our doggies next time???😜?

Perfect Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second family stay at this beautiful home. Donna provides everything needed, including dog dishes for our pup and towels for the Hot Springs Pool. We love the setting, yard, cleanliness, and walkability to anything we need. Her home is as described, and then some. The character and charm feel like home, and the detailed instructions for everything in the house are much appreciated. We hope to stay again next year for our Glenwood summer tradition. Thank you, Donna.

Wonderful choice for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is a superb rental for a family vacation in the gorgeous area of Glenwood Springs. Our group was grandpa and grandpa, daughter and husband with three grandchildren. Couples had large comfortable beds and each child had their own with the private twin being a bonus for our 13 year old granddaughter! The house is fully equipped with everything you need for "home-camping". The kitchen is equipped well for preparing your own meals and there is a generous selection of spices and condiments. The swamp-cooler type of air-conditioning worked exceedingly well. Outside temperature in the low 90's with the interior a comfortable 72. Quiet street for restful nights. We "VRBO" frequently and this property ranks in the top five overall and for our family of 7, number one. Would definitely stay again.

Enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in Donnas home to celebrate my daughter's 40th birthday. We all thoroughly enjoyed the home and our stay. Donna has done a wonderful job maintaining the integrity of this 40s home. It reminded my husband and I of the homes we grew up in and was very nostalgic for us. Love the soft yellows and golds of the walls further adding to the warmth of the home.The home was clean and amazingly well stocked. We normally rent vacation homes when traveling and this home was the best stocked for cooking utensils that I've been to. Town was just a few blocks away and a pleasant walk. Donna was very responsive and helpful. We look forward to visiting again.

My girls and I and came here and used it for a central point for my Mom's 85th birthday! It is beautiful and so roomy. I would like to book it again for the next time I visit this area. This was our first VRBO and we are sold :)

This is a lovely home with all you need for a comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

Donna was very easy to work with. Directions to the house were very clear. The house is in great shape and super clean. It's a very livable home. There were 5 of us for a girls get away and there was plenty of room for all of us to be comfortable. Beds were comfortable. Thank you Donna for allowing us to stay. We would definitely return. Also location is perfect
