Our 525 sq. ft. one bedroom apartment over our garage is in a busy family, middle class, residential neighborhood. It's an easy walk to downtown, or ride the 2 guest bikes. The apartment is comfortable for three adults max, private entrance, quiet with great views. Remodeled in 2015, you will find everything you need for your mountain town vacation, yoga training, or a large quiet space for the business traveler.

The space
Our spacious 525 sq. ft. non-smoking, pet-free apartment over the garage has a private entrance, not accessible from inside our house. It accommodates a maximum of 3 adults and is well lit from large windows on three sides with 270° views. A custom room divider, permanently suspended, separates the bedroom from the other spaces (see photos). The living room futon converts to a Full size bed to accommodate up to 1 extra adult or child (please note our fee for third guest). The apartment has a new bathroom including a large walk-in tiled shower. There is a fully equipped kitchen, including a 2-burner cooktop, sink, refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker, electric tea kettle, toaster, and other appliances and utensils. In April 2015 a new and larger private deck with table, chairs, umbrella was added to complement the interior remodel.

We are centrally located for easy access to Main Street, Carbondale's festivals, events, outdoor activities, and RFTA public bus transportation to Aspen or Glenwood Springs. We're located just 5 walkable and safe blocks from shops, restaurants, & galleries on Main Street; 1 block from the Third Street Center; 5 minute walk to River Valley Ranch golf course; and a 10 minute walk to Sopris Park, the town pool and RFTA bus transportation.

Friendly and safe family-oriented residential neighborhood. No traffic. On street parking near your private gated entrance. But it's not in the wilderness; only 5 blocks from downtown. Of course we do live within walking distance to the middle and high schools, so seasonal football and soccer game cheers can add to a lively evening ambiance. If you happen to visit during a full moon, the traditional 300+ full-moon cruisers sometimes pedal their bicycles through our neighborhood.

We are a retired couple: Hank is a retired firefighter/medic and Shelle a recently retired 1st and 2nd grade reading specialist. We love all that Carbondale is: a warm and friendly mountain town with a rich ranching and mining history; a town with a vibrant arts scene and a burgeoning live music scene; a town with an independent movie theater and first class restaurants; a town close to world-class skiing and snowboarding, and a town that hasn't lost it's character and "messy vitality" like so many other mountain towns. Between the two of us, we have 4 grown children and 4 adorable grandchildren (I'll spare you the boatloads of photos). We blended our families 21 years ago and moved into a large house. The nest is empty, and 5 years ago we converted a large part of it into a very private and deluxe Airbnb apartment. We enjoy travel when possible and prefer to experience real life and real folks in other locales rather than just the tourist experience, and we think you might feel the same way. It's why we got into Airbnb, both as guests and as SuperHosts! Between the two of us we can speak a little French, a little Nederlands and very little Spanish. Please let us know how we might make your stay with us more comfortable, more convenient or more enjoyable.
