Our beautiful custom log home is called Red Tail Ridge and is located just 23 miles from Aspen and 7 miles from the quaint village of Basalt. Situated at 7850' at the end of a very private road, with spectacular views, RTR offers total privacy
Red Tail Ridge is truly a 'retreat' with total privacy, wonderful perennial gardens and wildlife. There are hiking trails directly from our home to a thousand acres of preserved land bordering our property. We lovingly call it the 'kingdom of southwest Pitkin County.'
Our cozy log home has a baby grand piano in the great room. All rooms have huge picture windows with breath taking views of Mt Sopris and the surrounding mountain views. There is a large kitchen with commercial size gas stove, six burners and a flat top grill with two large ovens. There is a wine cooler for extra drink storage.
The master and guest bath have steam showers which are wonderful after skiing or a long bike ride!
There is a hot tub on its own deck on the east end of the home adjacent to the master bathroom. The sunny views are sensational or the starry skies are equally wonderful!
The entire home is available for weekly rentals or longer. We do not rent bedrooms individually for travelers. Monthly rates are negotiable. Red Tail Ridge is the perfect vacation home for several couples and their families.
Owners may be residing in the cottage which is near the entrance gate and out of sight from the main home.
As we wish to rent the entire home, John & Molly will stay in the studio cabin situated in the meadow away from the main house or will be traveling ourselves. But we always help our guests in anyway possible and are usually available for questions you may have.
If renting our home in the winter, it is absolutely imperative to have 4 wheel drive as our home is situated approximately 1000' above the valley floor. The road is maintained in both summer and winter but it is steep!
Well, we hope all our guests will enjoy their stay at this special place and treat it as it is your own home. No smoking. We have many wonderful antiques which need TLC at all times. Check in: not before noon and check out before noon.
