Beautiful Area and Views
The place was awesome the people were very friendly I would love to go bank for Vication and I would recommend anybody
The grounds are great
We stayed for 1 week with a party of 12 for a family reunion. Ages ran from 10 to 70. Let me start out with the positives.
The swimming pond, cook cabin, fire pit & surrounding grounds are great.
The big kitchen table & side table worked well for meals & games
The house architecture is interesting.
The location worked well about halfway between Glenwood Springs & Carbondale
Gretchen & her family are friendly & helpful
We did have a few issues with the house providing for 12 people.
There is no living room. There is a very small area on the upstairs landing with a love seat & 1 chair. Everyone hung out in the kitchen which was not the the best way to get comfortable & relax especially when preparing meals.
Our 2nd problem was sleeping arrangements. Although there are beds for 12, there were 3 couples that wanted a room to themselves. That left 6 people for the 4th bedroom. We ended up with 1 couple getting a hotel room in town. The remaining 10 were comfortable. I think the house is best for 10 people or less.
In summary if you don't need a living room & the sleeping arrangements work for your size group I highly recommend this property.
Couldn't agree more about the group size limitations! We ran a traditional B&B for years before converting over to VRBO and that's why the guest house is set up as it is - not as a "normal" house for rent (like VRBO usually features) but for maximum privacy for the individual couples/families within the four bedrooms. From the host perspective, VRBO has taken a while to get used to - all of the information (including bed configuration, etc.) had been input onto the site, but you kind of have to look for it (that's the way the site is set up). We do have bed space for 12, but you need to see how the beds are configured to figure out if it will work for your group.
That said, I have amended the maximum size to 10 (with no more than 8 adults) to help address this issue.
Most of our guests have enjoyed using the large country kitchen (with upholstered chairs) as the gathering place, I guess because the kitchen wasn't used often to cook full meals, though it's definitely possible to do so. Again, depends on what your expected use of the kitchen would be.
Best vacation in Colorado
Very spacious bedrooms with comfortable beds. Beautiful view on the Rocky Mountains.
Very friendly people.
Beautiful European Country Retreat!
Gretchen was a marvelous host! We really enjoyed our stay!
The kids loved the pond and paddleboat, and spent hours playing in the little cabin.
The location was convenient to the Glenwood springs attractions and a short trip to Aspen to see the Maroon Bells.
We enjoyed the sunset view from Lookout mountain, and the access road to the top was just 1 1/2 miles down the road. We saw a black bear cross the road on the way up to the tower!
There was plenty of room to spread out in the house. We had several deer visit us every morning for breakfast including a fawn.
We would recommend staying here without reservation!
We had a great time at this property. Everything was as described, quiet, clean and well maintained. Gretchen provided top notch service and accommodated every request. Property has awesome views and we saw plenty of wildlife. Cannot say enough nice things.
There is an amazing amount of outdoor, adventurous things to do, all within a half hour drive from here, including rafting, hiking, mountain biking, skiing, paragliding, climbing, swimming and more. If you enjoy a quieter kind of outdoor experience, you can stay on the property and hang out at our pond (use the paddle boat, swim if you like), or take a walk out in the countryside.
