About Nina Pedersen

Nina and Jess are creative outdoor people. Jess is an architect...Nina is a papermaker....we both are hands on builders....we both teach skiing and are very involved parents. We have 2 kids, 3 dogs, 3 horses, 3 (or maybe) 4 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 Carbondale

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 the 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 old 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 house in a rural setting located minutes from Carbondale with great restaurants and servic

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many VRBO rentals around the western United States and Nina's cottage is one of our favorites. New and nicely appointed with everything you need to prepare a meal. Nice sheets and comfortable beds. Nice a quiet. The best part is Nina and family love dogs and welcomed our pack with open arms.

They are great people and made us feel welcome and also gave us our privacy.

Hope to see you again!

Cool and contemporary

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house. Very cool architecture and nice furnishings. Everything we needed. Location was fun, adjacent to farmland and wildlife, but only a few minutes to good food, hiking and biking. We saw many deer and elk from the front porch! Nina was kind and responsive. Thanks!

Awesome is the word!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed the stay at this cabin. Obviously Nina & Jess are the best host. They made sure that our stay was pleasant and peaceful. My kids had a great time feeding their horses and playing with their dogs. About the property, it is neat and clean with all the amenities a family would need. It has a 360 degree of stunning view. We will definitely stay here again.

Great house and location!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed three fabulous days in the Roaring Fork Valley--Nina and Jess' place was perfect for our family of four and it is always nice to bring the furry family members too--we all enjoyed the fresh air, views and extra time outside...the only thing that would have made it better was a couple more days!

Perfect, Relaxing Setting!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect. It's an adorable property with great attention to many details that made our stay so enjoyable. It’s nicely decorated, and well furnished. It's on a farm setting next to the owners home but far enough away to have its own privacy. It's very quiet and relaxing and had great space for our two dogs (Hogan and Mala) who also greatly enjoyed the property, especially the Chuckit field in the front to play ball and run. The patio looks out at active farmland and snow covered peaks in the distance. Situated between Carbondale and Basalt which provide nice shopping and great dinner choices. Hiking is close by and fly fishing too it you so choose.

The home and property are great for dogs and one of the owners dogs, Cowboy, is a regular visitor if not always a guest. Nina and Jess are great hosts. They gave us great ideas and tips for exploring and hiking as well as restaurants to visit.

Our only wish would be to have a bathroom on the second floor since, in our opinion, it was the more desirable bedroom but we would welcome the opportunity to visit again.

A great place with great hosts made for a great stay. Thank you Nina and Jess.

Gorgeous location and home, beautifully set for a wondrous vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The best vacation rental we've ever stayed in! So much, in fact, that I was inspired to share a facebook post that read, "You know all of those VRBOs, HomeAways, and hotels that somehow look SO much better online than in person. Well this place is SO much better IRL than as pictured online."
