Gordon was an incredible host. We were greeted in the studio with a nice bottle of wine and some food for breakfast for the next morning. The studio was very nice and spacious, and had an amazing view over the valley below Snowmass. There was a great hot tub right outside the studio, which was perfect after a day of snowboarding at Snowmass and Aspen. The bus to Snowmass was a quick 5-10 minute walk away, which was quite convenient.
Never actually met Gordon face to face, but he was awesome nonetheless. When we spoke over the phone or communicated via text, he was nothing short of friendly, informative and accommodating. Spending a couple of days in his cozy studio was a real treat. Hope to do it again next season.
Gordon was the best! He was always available to answer any questions I had and was very accomodating when we finally did get in. His place was nice, private, and very close to the Snowmass slopes. A private hot tub was a bonus. Highly recommend!
Great location and great space!! The room was very comfortable with space to stretch out. Thanks so much!!!!
Wonderful host. Lots of very helpful advice. Earplugs provided if noise was a problem and they were not needed. Hot tub was wonderful after a day on the mountain. Gordon was wonderful.
Gordon and Mitzy were so kind and helpful. It was so unfortunate we did not get a chance to meet. This was my first airbnb and everything ran smoothly. The apartment was very comfortable and is much bigger than it seems in the photos. Hot tub was awesome and the kitchenette was so convenient. Thank you both very much for everything ! We had a great stay 3
This place was great! It's right in Snowmass Village and shuttles to all of the Aspen mountains.
One thing that wasn't mentioned in the description is the HOT TUB! There definitely one here right outside of the door so you don't have to freeze running back inside after you're done.
Gordon and Mitzi were very hospitable. Couldn't really ask for more.
