Red River Real Estate
About Red River Real Estate
I love to travel and see the world, but when it gets really hot in Texas, it is time to go to the mountains. Although I have visited all 7 continents, there is something about Red River that has captured my imagination. Perhaps it is the friendly town. Perhaps the cool mountain air and stunning views. Perhaps it is my encounters with wildlife: deer, elk, bear, wild turkey, squirrels, birds, you name it. Perhaps it is finding out that my great great grandfather visited here during the mining heyday and invested in the community. Perhaps it is the wealth of history and the charm of an old mining town that has reinvented itself. Now that I'm retired, I like to bring my 3 dogs for a month in the summer where we hike together and explore together in my 4WD. I find the peaceful atmosphere conducive to writing the book I'm working on. I hope you will enjoy my townhouses as much as I've enjoyed decorating them and sharing them with other travelers.
Red River Real Estate purchased this Townhouse in 2004
Why Red River Real Estate chose Red River Ski Area
A friend invited me to visit her townhouse when I was going through a tough period in my life. I fell in love with the friendly town, the wildlife, the mountains and cool summer weather. Since it is only 10 hours from my home, I decided it was time to buy a place and explore further. Every time I come, I find something new to see or do. I recently found out about my great great grandfather's experience here by buying an old newspaper in one of the gift shops. I suppose I have a genetic connection to this place!
What makes this Townhouse unique
Words cannot adequately describe the feeling of sitting on the balcony with a cup of hot chocolate, watching the sun turn the mountains from gray to pink to glowing red. For the early riser, one might see bears wandering through the nearby creek on their way to the river or deer munching on the bushes. On the other hand, if you are a nightlife person, the two local bars provide great live music and are a short two blocks away.

Great place with a ton of room. Exactly as advertised.
Enjoyed the space that this property offered. Plenty of room for our team of 8 athletes. Located in the middle of town and worked perfect for us.
The property was sufficient for our stay; however, it was less stocked with kitchen supplies than other places we have stayed. There was a lot of space for our family, but the property was very dated (carpet needs cleaned) and had some plumbing issues. Not the best place to stay if you need trailer parking. One of the best things about this property was its proximity to local attractions. Everything was within walking distance and the reality company in charge of the property was very friendly.
Aspen West is a versatile and comfortable town home. It is easily accessible to town, ski lift, and hiking trails. With four twin beds in the loft, two bedrooms and an efficiency apartment on the ground level, it will accommodate most traveler's needs. The unit is very clean and is nicely decorated in a southwestern theme. There are restaurants close by, but if you are in the mood for cooking, the kitchen is well stocked. On a previous stay, we were on the balcony early in the morning and a bear casually walked by. The people who manage the property were friendly and helpful. When we return to Red River, we will once again stay at Aspen West again.
We had a wonderful time staying at Aspen West. It is located in town where one can walk to any of the stores, ski area, or restaurants. There is even a hidden auto mechanics shop across the street in case of emergency.
This unit is so flexible and can sleep many people with two bedrooms on the second floor, a couch that makes into a bed on the third floor, a loft with twin beds, and an optional efficiency apartment on the main floor. It is nicely furnished and decorated. The owner put a lot of thought into the decor that gives each room its own personality. It has just been newly painted and carpeted. I think that we were the first people to get to stay in it after the face lift. It was nice to have use of a washer and dryer too.
The owner has the kitchen fully stocked with dishes and pots and pans. We used the slow cooker a lot to cook our evening meal.
Staying at this town house makes one feel like they are in the mountains. It is located right across the street from a hiking path that one can take to view the wild flowers. It is perfect for a vacation get away from the big city.
