From the property one can fish or walk to other nearby fishing spots, access a put-in or continue and follow the River Walk Trail to Basalt. Often numerous and colorful rafters and kayakers negotiate the river. The riders & guides know a section of the river, just beyond the home, as “Toothache”.

We had a great 9 day November stay at the Riverside Retreat. 3 of us were on a Colorado deer hunt and the location worked out great. Easy to find and easy to get on the highway. Looks like a great spot to access the Rio Grande hiking/biking trail, trout fishing and skiing. Kim was an excellent hostess and very knowledgeable and accommodating.

The kitchen is stocked with everything you need for a group plus some. There are reams of towels, extra bedding, even note pads with pens, soaps, lotions, games, and very clean. Plenty of closet space with hangers,... Read More

The reading material in the bookcases is for adults only. Might want... Read More

Outstanding Property

We loved this property. Clean, spacious and offered all the amenities we needed. It was convenient to Snowmass, Basalt and other attractions. The owner was great to work with and I would definitely recommend this property.
