One of the best appointed and supplied temp rentals we've stayed at -- ever! This is a new place. They deserve to succeed! Lovely art on the walls; excellent supplies & kitchen equipment (above and beyond! -- even sharp knives); wide/deep comfortable porch with awesome mountain views with great light both AM and PM; very clear guidance and instructions, and great communication while there. (We locked ourselves out -- in the evening! -- and our guest contact, owner Amber, replied to our frantic text within moments with a perfect solution -- which I won't describe here.) No cell service in town, but excellent Wifi on the property. (Didn't bother with the nicely set up "smart TV" room.) The town of Marble truly is magical, with a very mellow vibe: if you are there mid-summer, see if the Marble Symposium is in town -- where 25-45 marble sculptors from all over work outside under tents (about half a mile away) -- on marble mostly donated by the local quarry -- & are happy to have folks wander thru and talk about what they're doing. Visit Redstone (great Detroit pizza at Propaganda Pie), and by all means go to Slow Groovin BBQ in Marble (the only restaurant in town), where you'll have the best cornbread in the world. Glenwood Springs is an hour away if you're interested, but don't bother with Aspen. If the crowds & glitz etc. of the I-70 corridor and certain other Colorado spots are not your thing, try this -- quiet, casual, remote. We'll be back.

This past week, I had the pleasure of staying at the stunning custom wooden home in Marble, CO, and it was nothing short of a dream. Nestled in the heart of the mountains, this home offers an unparalleled blend of comfort, elegance, and breathtaking views.
From the moment I arrived, I was captivated by the home's unique charm. The wooden architecture exudes a rustic yet sophisticated aesthetic that harmoniously blends with the surrounding natural beauty. The craftsmanship is evident in every corner, from the intricate woodwork to the thoughtful layout.
The interior of the home is equally impressive. The spacious living area, adorned with cozy furnishings and a warm fireplace, immediately invites relaxation. The kitchen is fully equipped, making meal preparation a joy, especially with the added bonus of mountain views from the window.
The bedrooms are a haven of tranquility, offering plush beds that ensure a restful night's sleep. Waking up to the sight of the sun rising over the mountains was an experience I will cherish.
But the real gem of this home is its location. The panoramic mountain views are simply awe-inspiring. Whether I was sipping my morning coffee on the deck or stargazing at night, the serene beauty of the landscape was a constant source of joy.
The home's proximity to hiking trails and outdoor activities was another highlight of my stay. It was the perfect base for exploring the natural wonders of Marble, CO.
In conclusion, my weekend at this place was an unforgettable experience. It offers a perfect blend of luxury, comfort, and natural beauty. Whether you're seeking a peaceful retreat or an adventurous getaway, this home is a perfect choice. I look forward to returning soon.
We found this new place to be the most well-appointed and supplied short-term rental we've ever booked: lovely art on the walls, a well-equipped kitchen (truly above and beyond), very comfortable furnishings, linens, and so forth -- fine design and decoration throughout. A deep, wide porch faces east and south across the narrow valley with stunning mountain views in both morning and evening light. We enjoyed watching hummingbirds divebomb each other, competing for the feeder. Excellent technology -- including strong Wifi -- and though we didn't use it -- a nice TV room with a new 'smart TV.' There's an easy-to-use Bluetooth speaker in the kitchen. Very clear instructions and guidance, as well as excellent communication before and during our stay: We locked ourselves out one evening but our guest contact -- Amber, the owner -- replied very quickly with a perfect solution, which I won't reveal here! The second floor has two large bedrooms, with ceiling fans, and much closet space; the nicely decorated bathroom has twin sinks and an excellent shower. Marble is a very small, unique town with a mellow vibe: quiet, casual, off the beaten trail, for sure. If you're looking for the crowds and glitz of Aspen or the I-70 corridor, this is not your place! If you go midsummer, see if the Marble Symposium is happening -- a gathering of 35-50 marble sculptors working under tents on marble largely donated by the nearby quarry. They're happy to have folks wander around and discuss what they are working on. Truly amazing. Visit Slow Groovin BBQ (the only restaurant in town) for the very best cornbread in the world! (The meat's good, too!) Wander through historic Redstone (30 minutes down the valley), and try excellent Detroit-style pizza at Propaganda Pie. We also really enjoyed riding our bikes up the Rio Grande Trail from Carbondale towards Aspen and back. Glenwood Springs is an hour away, if that appeals. We loved our stay, and we will certainly be back!
