Casa del Sol is the perfect place to experience all the Roaring Fork Valley has to offer. This spacious, sunny studio is located on 6 acres of private acreage off Four Mile Road. You can wake up every morning to a breathtaking view of Mt. Sopris. Casa del Sol is perfect if you are hoping to experience the mountain town life and yet be able to retreat to a quieter space - or if you want to be a 10 minute drive away from Sunlight Ski Resort. Casa del Sol is uniquely located between Glenwood Springs and Sunlight Mountain Resort- each one 5 miles away on Four Mile Road.
Casa Del Sol is great for couples, but can accommodate up to 4 guests. Please note, that Casa Del Sol has a studio style layout, thus privacy is limit if the group is more than a couple.
Our residence is on the same property, about 25 yards away but we give all of our guests space and privacy. Full Disclosure- we have 2 small boys who you may see playing outside from time to time.
***Note - due to our location outside of town, we are only subject to 3.9% state and county sales tax vs. the 11% tax required at in town properties.***
Casa Del Sol is located along Four Mile Creek, five miles from Glenwood Springs (about a 10-15 minute drive). As you continue up the road, Ski Sunlight is another five miles away. In the winter this is an ideal family ski resort, with surrounding cross country and snow shoe trails. You can enter into BLM land, and drive to Four Mile Park- offering snowmobile trails and sledding hills.
In the summer, the hike up Ski Sunlight is beautiful and quiet - you will often find yourself the only one there. Four Mile Park offers hiking, horseback riding, and mountain biking.
Ski Resorts: Ski Sunlight is a short ten minute drive up the road. Sunlight offers a wide variety of terrain, with a friendly local charm.
Aspen is forty miles away - and boasts four world class resorts - Snowmass, Highlands, Buttermilk and Ajax. The crowds in Aspen are minimal compared to the resorts closer to the front range.
For more world class skiing, Vail and Beaver Creek are an hour away to the east.

***Special Note for winter guests - All wheel drive or four wheel drive autos are required when staying in December, January, and February. Difficult conditions may also exist in November and March. We have the driveway professionally plowed and generally do not have problems. However, inappropriate cars can and do get stuck as elevation changes exist on the driveway as well as the possibility of slick ice and deep snow. Stuck cars do cause problems as the driveway services three separate properties. You are required to provide information about the cars that will be driven during the winter. Guests that become stuck are responsible for all associated costs.***
