This modern cabin is the ideal Carbondale vacation rental, designed to be private though our friendly dogs love to visit our guests. Come bike, bring friends and family, horses and dogs, for a fun getaway.....awaken to incredible views, before you go hit the slopes or a bike ride. This property is perfect for a romantic mountain retreat, girls getaway, writers haven, family trip....easy to settle in and move about.

Enjoy an unforgettable stay in a gorgeous and unique home, just 10 minutes to downtown Carbondale, 8 minutes to Whole Foods and about 30 minutes to downtown Aspen, 25 minutes to Glenwood Springs.

2 Bedrooms: Lofted Master open to below with a Queen bed and another queen bedroom downstairs. Sleeps 4 adults....we can accommodate 2 extra kids/teens on comfy twin trifold mattresses with bedding for the floor. However not ideal for 6 adults.

Kick your feet up in the open floor plan and walk out the sliding glass door to enjoy the summer sunsets on the slate patio with perennial garden. Watch the 2 TV/Direct TVs from either the living room/while you cook in the kitchen or upstairs in the Master bedroom.

The property is a mini ranch and has plenty of parking for large vehicles, horse trailers and all of your toys. Have friends with a fully appointed RV? They are welcome to come as well, with approval and small fee from the owner. Pets are welcome, including your for our hay or bring your own. There is a securely fenced 1 acre pasture for horses as well as 200sf fenced kennel with dog house and dog-couch for your well behaved dogs. Request availability at the time of your reservation.

We call it a Cabin as that is what was there before it burned down. For clarifications sake, we aren't in the woods or super secluded....a simple misconception caused by the word "Cabin."

Let's talk and get your vacation planning off to an amazing start.

About Nina Pedersen

Nina and Jess are creative outdoor people. Jess is an architect...Nina is a papermaker/bookkeeper....we both are hands on builders....we both teach skiing and are very involved parents. We have 2 kids, 3 dogs, 3 horses, 3 cats and lots of projects. We love our property and are happy to share it with you.

Nina Pedersen purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Nina Pedersen chose Missouri Heights

Before we had kids, we looked for a forever home, someplace where we could enjoy all of our passions, that had a restfulness and soul. We saw an ad in the paper and everything else stopped.....we knew the property and knew we wanted it. When we bought it, there were 2 cabins from the early 1900's, very rustic and old. Now the main home has a modern addition surrounding the original old cabin and the second cabin recently burned in an unexplained fire...hence this new cabin. We are surrounded by neighboring hay pastures, fields of sagebrush and 360 degree mountain views. We are always working on our property, gardening and making improvements. Seems the DIY style of living is our destiny.

What makes this cabin unique

We call this rental home 'The Cabin' as it replaced an old cow barn that had been modified to be a residential cabin before we bought the property. Missouri Heights can be windy in the spring so Jess designed this building to have no eaves on the west face, in corten steel. As you walk around the cabin, it changes to slats of cedar with gaps meant to resemble the original chinked log design. As the cedar ages, it will go driftwood grey. The interior layout is very similar to the original cabin, with a lofted bedroom over the kitchen area and an open-to-below view of the living room. The design is spare, simple and highly functional. For a small 2 bedroom cabin, everyone who walks in says 'I could live here!'

Wonderful stay on Missouri Heights

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in the Cabin on Missouri Heights was perfect. Private and well stocked. Short ride into town. Nina and Jess were available for any questions. View was great and the location allowed us to visit relatives close by. We were also able to bring our fur buddy which was a big plus. Investigating the history of the area was very interesting. We will be sure to stay again when the need arises, as well as passing on the recommendation of staying to others.

Thanks to Nina and Jess.

Even better than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our weekend stay in the Aspen/Carbondale area. (Our group members were 3 adults and 1 dog). The setting is stunning -- secluded and yet convenient to restaurants, stores, bike trail, and mountain activities. The house was very comfortable and well equipped. It could not have been better, and we are looking forward to a return trip when we can stay longer.

Scenic, quiet, and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful cabin with very nice design features and functional space. We were very comfortable (4 people and 1 dog), and enjoyed the relaxing environment and scenic views wherever you looked. We day tripped to Aspen, Carbondale, Basalt, and Glenwood Springs with ease, but also hung out and enjoyed the quiet solitude. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating. We would definitely stay at this property again.

Our home and this Cabin are the quintessential biking route....from the minute March hits you find road / mtn bikers pumping up and down the hill, riding one of many loops. Stay at our cabin and you start near the top and you end with the uphill.
