THE ASPEN HIGHLANDS RETREAT
Pet Friendly, Walk To Buttermilk & Highlands Ski Resorts

ABOUT THIS SPACE
 

Allow nature in at our endearing gathering space for the young and old Aspenites at heart. Our 6 bedroom, 3.5 bath casual country home offers a just-so mountain experience for your family of 10, with its close proximity to skiing, a 15-minute bike ride to town, minutes to Maroon Lake, and steps to the Aspen Rec Center. This ever-convenient home inspires relaxation and adventure with its spacious backyard boasting a trampoline hot tub with Buttermilk mountainscape views, as well as a kitchen & entertaining space full of flavor and myriad cozy beds & reading nooks. We allow up to two well-behaved pets to join you with a $250 non-refundable pet fee for every 7 nights you stay. 

Set in a private, quiet Aspen neighborhood, within reach of the bustle of town, park directly in front of the multiple entrances welcoming our spacious front drive. Choose a cute cubby space & hook for your waders and sun hat in our grand entryway mudroom suitable for all your guests. Enter left into the main living area of the home; to start, step down into your relaxed media/television space with adjoining vintage bathroom with an exquisite antique wash tub. Travel further on your right and settle in the gentle living room sofas to relish in the warm light of the grand flagstone wood-burning fireplace. 

At this south end of the home sits the generous farmhouse table for 6, with plenty of extra room, in the airy ski-inspired dining area with a luxe touch of a sophisticated chandelier. Steer left into your radiant and seasoned kitchen, with just the right amount of crockery for preparing a multi-course meal for your petite and gourmandise travelers. Off the kitchen, you’ll discover a spacious pantry suitable for everyday sundries. You may pop out the farmhouse kitchen door to greet guests; to access the second level guest rooms by way of a metal spiral staircase (best suited for the sure-footed adventurers); or to jaunt downstairs to our garden level accommodations. The main level is also outfitted with a comprehensive laundry room for your active Aspen stay.

Off the dining area, fix your eyes on the greenspace as you exit to the exceptional backyard. The wood-planked patio provides cushioned seating for a brunch for 6, with a BBQ gas grill and enchanted couples seating nearby. Your outdoor living area provides two quaking aspen-fixed hammocks to swing in, a set of chapter-finishing lounge chairs, a seating area for 4 in the shade of the trees, and the just-right slope scenery at the whirlpool tub.

Arrive back inside thru the entrance off the mudroom and venture directly upstairs to 3 restful bedrooms and adjacent bathroom with crisp white tile and a soaking tub. In the 3 guest bedrooms, your young Aspenites will revel in their two rooms, both with a twin trundle bed and desk/seating space. Each bedroom is bright with thoughtfully placed windows looking out on the surrounding montane area of Aspen. The third bedroom has a lovely queen bed, fit for a pleasant slumber while appreciating the ceiling splash of artwork.

Off the quietude of the relaxed corner office/living retreat space on the main level is the woodsy master bathroom with a lovely spacious tub. Hike upstairs, on a 2nd metal spiral staircase, to a simplistic and welcoming sleep in our king master bedroom loft with room to lounge or dress up for much-awaited Bistro or Tavern fare in the village.  

More exclusive sleeping quarters are found downstairs on the ground level of the home, with 2 guest bedrooms and a skiers’ delight bathroom with rain showerhead. One garden level guestroom provides a seating area and a belle antique dresser, with its warm and sinkable queen bed. The second garden level queen guestroom provides a petite, cozy experience, decorated with locals’ adventure photographs in its peaceful nook.

Our inviting, warm dwelling offers the essence of Aspen locals’ living with its ideal location in a delightful neighborhood, spacious countryside comforts for all your guests, a memorable backyard space, and cheerful environs to share wholesome alpine-style meals with all of your travelers.
