Spacious, private bedroom, bath & kitchenette set amid four wild acres next to Seven Castles national forest & walking distance to the Frying Pan River. A great location for fishing, hiking, biking, jogging, wildlife watching and relaxing, yet just 4.7 miles to the charming Basalt center, and beyond to Aspen & Snowmass.
HI FISHERMAN, HUNTERS, TRAVELERS AND LOVERS OF THE OUTDOORS, JOIN US UNDER THE SEVEN CASTLES
Your private room (approximately 18’ x 14.5’) is on the third level of a 2700 square foot home and features a nice, queen-sized bed plus a single/day bed, small desk area, flat-screen TV with DVDS (no cable), CD player and a wide assortment of CDs, and beautiful views of the Seven Castles. (See photos). The bathroom has a shower/tub combination. A kitchenette for your exclusive use is in the hall between your bedroom and bath.
You’ll have the 3rd floor to yourself. I’m on the second level with a separate private living room, kitchen and dining room.
This bright, spacious house is a perfect location for:
~Fishing (the Gold Medal Frying Pan River is a short walk away, and there any number of choice fishing spots up and down the river);
~Hiking (climb up the hill behind the house to reach the old Stagecoach Road, public lands, and explore the creek gorge and waterfall **); grab a trails guide and you’ll find some excellent hikes toward Ruedi and beyond;
~Cycling, Running & Walking (the Frying Pan Road is a popular course for bicyclists & joggers);
~Boating (Ruedi Reservoir is less than 10 miles up the river)
~Relaxing, meditating & being creative.
Days at the Seven Castles House are peaceful, and rich with the ever-changing panoramic view. At night the moon rises over the mountain peaks across the river and the stars are a thousand points of sparkling light in the dark sky.
Amenities: Sheets and towels are provided. There's a small kitchenette just outside your room in a hall cubby-hole with a mini-fridge, microwave, toaster oven and coffee maker. No stove. Please bring your own food, cooking oils and condiments. (The main kitchen and dining room can also be available for special occasions/fees apply. Reservations must be requested and confirmed prior to your visit.)
Feel free to enjoy your morning coffee or tea out on the wrap-around porch with views across to the river's edge (just a little peak of the water from your room) and up the valley. Or dine out on the large back deck and gaze up at the towering Seven Castles, or the sparkling night sky.
There's ample space to park an RV or even a boat. Please let me know in advance.
Please comfortably pass through the 1st and 2nd floors to get outside; however, these areas are not for guest use. If you need anything, please ask... do not search around.

You'll have as much privacy as you wish, as I'll be busy working and organizing through the day. Feel free to ask me for any hiking and getting-around tips. I have quite a few travel books and valley info to help to maximize your stay in our beautiful valley.
* Regarding connecting with the outside world, the house has NO cable TV or Wifi but there are plenty of places just 10 minutes away in Basalt to get connected. Verizon works reasonably well in this location but other cell service is spotty.
*** The full upper floor is now available for vacation rental and offers a 2 bedroom/1 bath option. Please take a look at my companion listing with the same cover photo.
The price for two people for a single night is $89. Each additional person up to 3 is $45. A $55 cleaning fee applies to all rentals.
Pets considered with extra fee of $22.50 per night with a $45 minimum. No smoking in the house or on the decks. Plenty of open space around though.
Enjoy yourself, first and foremost. And, this is a shared house, please do keep reasonably quiet and respect the privacy of others. Do not bring anyone into the house who's not registered as a guest. If you use the kitchen, please clean up after yourself. Basic considerations.
As to your arrival, please be sure to coordinate your arrival time with me -- within roughly an hour. Arrival is after 3 p.m. and checkout is 11 a.m. Happy to consider special arrangements if circumstances allow to accommodate your schedule.

Hi! I live in Colorado and work in marketing, public relations, political strategy and community organizing. I also sculpt and practice Chinese martial arts. I've traveled all around Europe, Central America and parts of Asia. I hope to visit many more places in the U.S. and look forward to enjoying unique experiences through this great program. As a visitor, I'm quiet, thoughtful and considerate of your home. (I've not yet made any reservations so no reviews.) I'm in the process of setting up my home below the amazing Seven Castles in Colorado for guest stays. As of August, 2013 I have a private room and bath available for visitors and will offer the full house for short- and long-term stays in September. Welcome!
