Nestled beside the Crystal River, the River Nest boasts a 1/2 mile of private fishing and is the perfect space to disconnect with the outside world, unwind, and connect with nature. Soak into the newly remodeled space while gazing out at Mount Sopris and the Crystal River right outside your doorstep and watch the local wildlife stroll by your picture windows. Whatever you're coming to Carbondale to enjoy, this space is only 10 minutes outside of town, but feels miles away and secluded.

This space is truly unique - the River Nest is located right along the Crystal River at the base of Mount Sopris on a 30-acre working ranch. Not only do you have a stunning 1/2 mile of private fishing seclusion, but you're only 10 minutes from downtown Carbondale. The River Nest is the perfect space to unwind and listen to the sounds of nature.

The concept of this space is simple: unplug & unwind. There is wifi in the space, but not high-speed and it is limited - we want guests to use this space to connect with nature, not the outside world. This one-bedroom open-concept space is perfect for 2 but can fit 4 with a memory foam pull out couch bed (please note there is no door to the bedroom). Enjoy your full kitchen stocked with gas range, large copper sink, microwave, and fridge - enjoy coffee and tea in the morning while you watch the sun climb above the 13,000 foot mountain range in your backyard. Sit and read a book in one of your two comfortable sitting areas, or soak in the deep claw-foot tub while watching the trees sway outside. This space is truly a home away from home.
