  • Comfort and amenities amidst majestic views make this a memorable stay


    First sight of this beautiful historic home is awe inspiring on it's own, with the mirrored windows, and the surrounding log buildings across from the Twin Lakes themselves. But that is nothing compared to the decorations that adorn the inside of the home! It immediately made us feel welcome and warm.

    The living room is a comfortable place to sit and relax, while the kitchen is equipped with updated appliances and anything you might need for meal prep. The beds are comfortable, and the views from any of the bedroom windows at sunrise or sunset are sure to cause a photo taking frenzy! There is a huge sundeck off of the master bedroom and a front porch that will both provide plenty of opportunity to just sit and enjoy the view of the surrounding mountains.

    It's just an hour from Aspen, and whether you stay in Twin Lakes and enjoy the multiple opportunities for hiking, canoeing or wandering through the little shops owned and run by the locals you're guaranteed to have a stay that will provide memories to cherish.

    The house was perfectly located in Twin Lakes across from the Visitors Center, the house was comfortable and the kitchen was great. Definitely appreciate the thoughtfulness of the host.

  • Lovely Getaway


    Had an amazing stay at this charming home in Twin Lakes. The house is lovely, with beautiful views toward the mountains. The beds were amazingly comfortable - even the pillows! The kitchen was kitted out with everything you could need, and if you are not up for cooking, there are several dining options just steps away. The house sits in a great location, with beautiful drives to Leadville, Aspen or Buena Vista.Communication before and during the stay was great, both from the owners and the property management. One of my favorite homes we have travelled to.

  • Great Place To Stay!


    We had a wonderful time! The house is beautiful and Twin Lakes are right across the street. The home sits at the base of Independence Pass so the views are amazing. The wine and cookies left by the hosts were a nice surprise. We will definitely go back.

  • Amazing home


    Everything about this property was amazing. Beautiful decor and very welcoming vibe. The hosts were very knowledgeable and quick to respond. We plan to make this home an annual vacation spot. It is central to all things outdoors.
