traveler reviews for this glenwood springs house rental

Expectations Far Exceeded

Review submitted: October 7, 2009   Date of arrival: September 24, 2009

I completely agree with the other reviews that I had read on the site prior to booking the guest house. Pictures are not able to do this property justice. The well cared for house and its surroundings are dramatic. The floor plan works extremely well for families and other groups. The location feels private and secluded but the town is still close enough that we could easily do the things we wanted (and get the things we needed) without a lot of driving. We loved that house isn't visible at all from the road yet still offers incredible views. One practical suggestion, if you are driving in from Denver and are Costco members, consider making a stop at the Gypsum warehouse on the way. We were able to get much of what we needed for our large group in one quick trip.

Glenwood Springs and the Roaring Fork Valley are hidden gems with all the natural beauty and year round recreation opportunities of other Colorado tourist areas but with far greater value. I highly recommend staying long enough to take in all that the guest house and surrounding attractions have to offer. I can't recommend enough the guest house, it's owners and their local hosts.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, people with disabilities, families with teenagers, sight seeing

Owners response: We love your practical suggestion to stop at Costco in Gypsum on the way up from Denver. There are also 2 grocery stores in Glenwood Springs for last minute items, but Costso offers the best selection and price for large groups to cook meals at home in the great kitchen at the Sunshine Ridge Guest House.

Spectacular. Highly recommended.

Review submitted: March 17, 2014   Date of arrival: February 25, 2014

Amazing. Everything was perfect, from the initial communication with the owners, to the beautiful location and the spacious, yet cozy place. We could not have asked for a better location for our family reunion of over 20 people, including kids.

The whole place was in perfect shape and clean. This property added to the overall enjoyment of our vacation. Thank you!

A Word to the Foodies: The Kitchen is Beautifully

Review submitted: March 14, 2014   Date of arrival: October 5, 2013

I was the chef for a Yoga retreat at Sunshine Ridge in the fall of 2013. The aspens were at the height of their colorful glory. The property is quiet and beautiful in ways that only the Colorado mountains can provide. It was a restful and restorative experience, even for someone responsible for feeding everyone 3 times a day. The best guest house I have seen in Colorado. A word to the foodies: The kitchen is beautifully equipped with plenty of prep space and a Viking stove that was truly a pleasure to cook on.
