About this listing
We just bought this fabulous condo and have fully remodeled it. Modern white walls and doors, new gourmet kitchen with double oven and redone bathrooms. All new furniture and light fixtures -- romantic chandeliers and bedside sconces and custom wood closet organizers. Hot pool, sauna and laundry on site.
This condo is great for a family or a group of friends. It sleeps up to 6 with the sofa bed in the living room. The gourmet kitchen with brand new stainless steel appliances is great for cooking when you want to stay in and the condo is steps from the fabulous restaurants and nightlife that aspen has to offer !!
3 flat screen tvs guarantee everyone can relax on their own or come together around the cozy fireplace.
There is a wonderfully heated pool and sauna across the parking lot and there is a laundry room right next to the sauna.
We are 3 blocks walking to the silver queen gondola and just another 2 blocks to the free buses to highlands, buttermilk and snowmass. You don't need a car, but we provide parking if you have one !!
We live in snowmass village, just down the road if you need us for anything. We can connect you with snowmobiling, horseback riding or the best place for a massage (at our chiropractor's office !!!).
Swimming pool heated to hot tub levels !! Sauna. Laundry. Parking. Fireplace -- free wood on site. # blocks to the gondola and 2 blocks to restaurants and night life.
Interaction with Guests
We live 20 minutes away and are available as you need us -- or not at all if you prefer !!
What not love -- hiking, skiing, snowboarding, drinking, dancing, pilates, yoga, restaurants, shopping !!!
How to get from the airport to the condo:
There are taxis from the aspen airport — it is just 4.5 miles and about 10 minutes driving so the taxi is not expensive
Best place for rental equipment
If you are driving up from denver breeze ski rentals just as you are leaving denver is about half of the price of renting in aspen — here is a link:
If you need to rent in aspen:
I think you can get a slight discount if you rent your eqipment and buy your lift tickets as a package
Lift ticket information
The same lift ticket is good at all 4 mountains. There are slight discounts for buying multiple days (but just a few dollars) and a $20 discount for half days which start at noon.
We usually spend 2- 3 days at snowmass
Eat at café suzanne — cafeteria style -- over the the elk creek gondola and have the beouf bourginon — beef stew so good my husband and i talk about it all year.
There is a great 20 minute hike at the top of this side of the mountain that takes you to an out of bounds but in bounds experience — the run is called long shot and you access it off the top of the elk camp lift — if you have skiers of a variety of level it is something you can do together.
On the snowmass mall, venga venga is upscale super yummy mexican — sit down restaurant
In the new lower mall area sneaky's tavern is great for lunch or apres — sit down restaurant:
You should definitely also try highland's (another one of the mountains — most vertical drop in colorado) and plan to have a somewhat decadent lunch at cloud nine:
Ajax — aspen mountain
And the usually 2 days on ajax — aspen mountain, steps from the condo — and you have to eat at ajax tavern (we usually eat there 2 – 3 times in a week) right at the base os aspen mtn.
Buttermilk is more of a beginner mountain but has great cruising runs !!!
Transportation to the mountains
Bus from aspen to snowmass to ski – where does it leave from, is there a schedule, does it cost money
The ski bus is free from 8 am – 4:30 at rubey park— here is a link to it on a map from the condo — just 3 blocks down durant — you can get shuttle to snowmass and highlands:
Restaurants — there are so many — but these are some aspen favorites:
Matsuhisa — amazing, expensive and amazing again sushi
Ajax tavern — can't be missed
Jimmy's — great for steak
Cache cache — bar menu — super beautiful and much less expensive than the restaurant
Campo di fiori — wonderful italian — not too heavy
Ute city — kind of fusion — really good
Weinerstube for breakfast
Jour de fete — french deli/bistro/take-out
Kenichi — cool atmosphere, great sushi
Asie for delivery chinese
The big wrap for wrap sandwiched and salads during the day — cash only
We have a great snowmobiling connection if you want to take a day off of skiing
Sky hotel — they have a great fireplace lounge for apres ski
Or just lounge on the sofa in the condo with a glass of wine
You can walk to everything !! Including the free buses to all the ski areas !!

Enjoy yourselves while being considerate of others in the building.
Please don't hesitate to contact me with absolutely anything I can help with !!
The condo was perfect. Clean, comfortable, stylish. Even the pull out bed was extremely comfortable. Very easy to deal with and good location. Would def. recommend
Two important things. Elizabeth is a great communicator, and a fantastic location. We spent 6 nights in the condo. Elizabeth responded to any questions immediately. Everything in town within easy walking distance.
We were a family of four. In the summer it works out fine. In winter, it would be a bit tight with ski equipment and wet clothes etc. I would definitely recommend this place and stay here again. Thanks Elizabeth
We just returned from a great 2 night stay! Elizabeth was responsive and easy to work with. She has a lovely condo that is well furnished, has nice amenities, and is conveniently located. We couldn't have asked for more. She is a wonderful host, and I recommend her place highly. Thank you, Elizabeth!
Fantastic location and great amenities!! We stayed for one night and I wish we could have stayed longer! This is a great place to stay in Aspen and I would recommend it to anyone. Very nicely decorated and the location is awesome!
Elizabeth was quick on email and very responsive to questions about arrival/key. The condo itself was lovely, impeccably clean, with two comfortable beds and a great pullout couch bed. The location was wonderful, up against Ute Trail and close to everything downtown including City Market etc. Could not recommend this place more for your next trip to Aspen!! Thanks Elizabeth for a wonderful stay.
Thanks for your hosting. It was an amazing place to visit again and again. Thanks for every thing you made to make our trip that easy and wonderful. 100% recommended for any one want to enjoy and relax.

About the Host, Elizabeth
We just moved from Costa Rica where we were living for 5 years to Snowmass Village, CO. We love to travel, everything outdoors whether it is the beach or the mountains and a good glass of wine never hurts !!
Being a host is a treat and a privilege !! We love that people are making life memories in our places.
Life motto: It is better to say Why did I do that than What if I had !!
