Take in the stunning architecture of a home designed for panoramic mountain views! Relax in a cozy room w/queen bed. Share the kitchenette, living rm & large bathrm with guests in the north bedrm, or rent both and enjoy the whole suite to yourself.
Enjoy panoramic views of the snow-capped Elk Range from a spacious "eco" home in Old Snowmass, convenient to both Aspen and Snowmass Village (25 minutes to each) and to Glenwood Springs (35 minutes). Your downstairs suite includes a bedroom with a Queen-size bed and a large bathroom, living room and mini-kitchenette, which are only shared if both our downstairs rooms are rented at the same time (see my listing for the North BR). The living area has a fold-out full-size futon couch, so if you rent both North and South Bedrooms, you could actually sleep 6, with 2 on the living room futon. The mini-kitchenette includes a microwave, induction burner, fridge, sink, toaster, utensils, etc. If you would prefer to do more elaborate cooking, we recommend you rent the upstairs suite instead.
As an architect and an artist, we carefully built our home with beams salvaged from Aspen demolitions, earthen plasters and other healthy, natural materials, and fresh air exchange. No fossil fuels here--our superefficient home is powered & heated by the sun and a toasty-warm, clean-burning wood pellet stove. We keep the home healthy with natural cleaning products and no smoking. While there is no cable TV, you'll have free wifi, and we welcome well-behaved pets.
You will need a car because we are a couple miles (uphill) from the bus stop. But with a car, you’ll have access to all the valley has to offer, including Aspen/Snowmass ski slopes, shops, restaurants and entertainment, Glenwood’s hot springs pool, gold-medal fly fishing in Basalt, and the charming town of Carbondale where you can enjoy artsy shops, a rodeo in the summer or the ice skating pond in the winter. Our house adjoins BLM open space and you can hike up Light Hill right from our back yard, or you can drive to the trailheads of some of Colorado’s “14er” mountains or go on a mountain biking or rafting adventure. From our deck you can watch the hot air balloons land at dawn in the valley below. At times you'll be above the clouds and you may see hawks soaring below or elk grazing. In the evening, enjoy the mountains glowing in the setting sun, or take in the blazing Milky Way after dark.
Guests are welcome to use the shared washer/dryer.

Hi! I'm an architect with a passion for green building and being outdoors. I designed our net-zero home, and my husband, an artist, built it, using natural and salvaged materials. When we're not enjoying our sunny home with its amazing views, or cooking gourmet food, we're out with our two young boys, hiking, climbing mountains, skiing, biking or playing hockey or soccer. We've traveled all over the world and have particularly loved visiting Thailand, Chile, and Greece, but more than anywhere, we enjoy being right here in the mountains of Colorado. Lest we take the gorgeous landscape and crisp, sunny weather for granted, we sometimes have to pinch ourselves and say, "Yes, we live here!"
