Brittany - Founder & CEO

For as long as I can remember, I've had a knack for hospitality and creating lasting experiences. When I started my own Airbnb in the mother-in-law suite of our home in Carbondale, I never dreamed it would become one of the top listings in the area. I've hosted hundreds of people and learned the art of getting a space booked with the right guests at the right price. Through carefully honing in on location, amenities, quality communications, and personal touches, we can help make your home a home away from home for travelers near and far.

My name is Brittany and I treat your home as if it was my own. That's why I started this company: I love unique spaces, traveling, and feeling as though I'm right at home while I'm away. I've traveled all over the world using vacation rentals and pick up something new from each space I enter. Through these experiences, I've come to realize that a space can make or break a vacation. That's powerful - which is why managing these spaces needs attention and thoughtfulness. My goal is to show guests the beauty of The Roaring Fork Valley through the spaces I manage. From a rustic cabin next to the Crystal River to a luxury mountaintop oasis, I have the skills to show guests the magic of a beautiful space to match the beautiful valley we call home.

I feel that hosting is the foundation of an excellent stay. For me, I love facilitating valuable experiences and getting to know interesting guests from different backgrounds. Especially with the happenings of this past year, I feel the opportunities we can provide are more important than ever, as an outlet from everyday life for our guests, who are looking to experience something magical in the mountains.  I first came to the mountains in Colorado more than 10 years ago and absolutely love all the outdoor activities abound. Originally from the east coast, I have enjoyed unique travels to places like the Torre Glacier in Argentina, the city of Prague in the Czech Republic, and the Sea of Cortez in Mexico by kayak; however, my favorite travels, by far, have been here in the mountain west.

 

I’m looking forward to sharing my enthusiasm for these great spaces with you!

I am a mother of two and also have a dog and a moody cat. My favorite travel spots have been to our national parks and also the American southwest. I’ve hosted travelers from all over the world and I love hosting and providing a real human connection to our guests. I take any chance that I can get to learn more about each guest and where they are from and their travels. A recent transplant who now calls Colorado home, I love this beautiful state. Colorado is a true gem full of adventure and discovery. When I’m not hosting or providing excellent care to our guests, you can find me around a campfire. I also enjoy reading, baking, and exploring open spaces with my kids. We love ghost towns, thrift shops, and kitschy attractions. I’m always looking up to the stars and invite you to do the same when you are visiting the beautiful Roaring Fork valley.
