vacation rental description

Our hand built log and stone home is in central Roaring Fork Valley, a little closer to Aspen than Glenwood Springs. We have stunning views of the Rocky Mountains. Our home has a cozy, rustic feel, with incredible opportunities for recreation. Amenities include a wood stove, a porch with hammocks, a fire pit in the front yard, a wood burning sauna in the back, a community swimming pool and tennis court in the summer, and cross country skiing, hiking or biking right from the door.

 We're on the edge of a subdivision, but we have a very rural feel, with preserved open space to the north, east and south. We're on three acres, but it feels much larger because of the open space in three directions. We're perched three miles above the highway (so there's easy access to shopping and local communities, with a great bus system connecting the valley), with inspiring views of the mountains. Wildlife abounds, with sightings of deer, fox, coyote, elk and many birds. The weather is often delightful, with warm (not hot) summers and snowy winters -- definitely distinct seasons. We're about a half hour from the ski slopes of Aspen or the hot springs and other attractions of Glenwood Springs.

The sauna is available all year, and after heating up you can jump in the snow in the winter, or in a small stream in the summer.  The community pool and hot tub are little used, so often it's like a private pool.  You can enjoy the cultural and recreational activities of the valley, and then rest and relax with the amenities in and around our home.

You can see more photos on our home exchange  listing 205637.

The bedrooms are laid out as follows:

Master bedroom has a queen bed and a small outside deck

Bedroom 2 has a queen bed and a tree fort (yes, you have to climb a tree) with a twin mattress in it.  Children should probably be at least 5 or 6 to use this bed.

Bedroom 3 has a queen bed and a sleeping loft with a twin mattress that's accessed by a ladder.

Bedroom 4 is our guest room / study.  It has a queen fold out couch / bed -- but it's high quality (made by American Furniture with a three platform design instead of the metal bars) and is just as comfortable as the other beds.  This room also has a large screen TV.
