About Terry

Our family has lived in Denver for nearly 10 years and my wife is from Los Angeles and I am originally from the Washington DC area (we actually met in Aspen.) Living in Colorado of course means we are fortunate to have access to some of the best skiing in North America and although the skiing is great, the summers in the Rocky Mountains is equally spectacular. Especially in Aspen, the city does a fantastic job of bringing world class events to town (Food & Wine Festival, Aspen Music Festival, Aspen Jazz Festival, Ideas Summit by the Aspen Institute,) and the weather in the summers is simply amazing, sunny days and cool nights.

Our family loves the outdoors and especially the splendor and beauty Colorado has to offer for both young and old.

Terry purchased this condo in 2006

Why Terry chose Aspen

When choosing this property we considered many factors, especially proximity to the gondola/downtown and of course the guest amenities. We wanted to be able to park our cars upon arrival and not get back in it until it was time to go home. In other words, we wanted to be able to walk, or bike, everywhere and although this is an option for several complexes in Aspen, the typical trade off is being 'close in' means you are often in noisy areas where traffic and late night noise can be disturbing factors.

Not the case at Chateau Roaring Fork. Although the complex is less than 3 blocks due east of the gondola, it sits on a cull de sac at the end of East Durant Street (walk down the stairs from the gondola and onto Durant Street, turn right and walk 3 blocks and you are in the parking lot) so it is in very peaceful and quite location.

But the best thing about our unit is that the east facing side directly overlooks the Roaring Fork River, and also overlooks a historical park on the opposite bank that was gifted to the City of Aspen in an Irrevocable Trust, so it can never be developed. When you open up the doors to the river it sounds like you are sitting in it. You would never know you are so close to downtown Aspen.

And talk about quest amenities... this complex has the best pool in Aspen, hands down, and is open year round. It is large and gets great sun all day long (see the pictures in the listing). There are also 2 hot tubs, a fitness center and a picnic area that features a Weber barbecue grill.

What makes this condo unique

Great Pool, Dedicated parking, Free cable, Free high speed wireless internet, Ski locker, Immediate access to the bike trails, Bus stop at complex (E. Cooper Ave.), Easy walking distance to downtown, parks, restaurants and entertainment venues.

The unit is a unique blend of old rustic mountain charm but with modern updates including new audio and video systems (Samsung flat screen, Stereo with DVD Player, Bose i-Pod docking station) new stainless appliances and an updated bathroom and wonderfully comfortable king sized pillow top mattress.

This place requires some TLC.

  • 3 of 5

Terry's place is well situated and nice to have the running river sound when one opens the sliding glass door. This condo needs a new bathroom. The bath/shower combo had a sliding door that was not easy to work. The easiest to fix details were not repaired such as the dimmer switch fixture in bath plus the loose toilet paper holder. New pillows and bedding would be nice as well as some kind of blankets for the pullout couch.

Owner's Response: We do actually provide full bedding for the pull out couch when notified by guests they will need to use it, but we were never informed by this particular guest that they needed the bedding for the couch. I provide my mobile phone # and e-mail to all guests with the check in instructions, and I encourage them to call me directly with any questions or concerns, but I never received any correspondences from this guest during their stay. It is true, this unit is not on par with the St. Regis of Aspen, but we feel it provides superb value for the price point given its location, size, and the amenities of the complex (heated year around pool, multiple hot tubs, etc.) That said, if you struggle to use sliding glass doors in a shower, then I can highly recommend the St. Regis. Its only 6 X the price point for a like size unit for the same dates that this guested stayed with us, but they do have hinged glass doors on their showers, or so I'm told. Terry

Perfect Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place! I stayed here for the XGames in January - it was the perfect location! Walking distance to everywhere that I needed to be, yet far enough away that it was quiet and peaceful. The condo had everything that I needed - all the kitchen gadgets and supplies. I loved having the washer and dryer right in the suite. And the bed was AMAZING! So soft and comfy! I would definitely stay here again! Thank you, Terry!

Nice condo, great location

  • 5 of 5

Terry’s place is the perfect location for a week of skiing for two people. Easy 3 block walk to gondola, City Market and shops. The free town bus stops nearby but we didn’t need it. Cooking at the Condo was easy. When we needed assistance it was easy to call Terry or Frias. It would be tight fir more than 2 people but great for just we 2. More storage/hanging racks would make this condo perfect. Highly recommend for two.

Great property

I enjoyed staying at the Chateau Roaring Fork condominium very much. It overlooks the Roaring Fork River, is quiet, and has a great location. The king bed is very comfortable.

Well-appointed, clean condo in Aspen with great view and lovely fireplace!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in February - skiing and visiting my in-laws. The condo is within walking distance of downtown's shops/restaurants/Aspen Mountain, the shuttles to the other Aspen Snowmass ski areas and is very close to the city market - great for picking up odds and ends. The main living area is well-appointed with comfortable furniture and a lovely fireplace - which we used twice and really enjoyed. The views from this space are terrific - the little river and the mountains make for a great backdrop. Bedroom was large, bed comfortable, and while there is only one bedside table for clothing, the closet was very large and the owner provided plenty of hangers so we simply hung everything up. We used the humidifier that comes with the condo - very appreciated in the dry Aspen climate. Bathroom was small, but suited our needs fine. Loved the large washer and dryer in the condo and really enjoyed the access to the hot tub after long days skiing (there is a pool as well - seems it is also heated year round, but we didn't use it). We didn't cook, but kitchen seems to have all you'd need. Wifi was good, owner was easy to reach for questions, and the condo was clean/everything was in working order. We give this place 5 stars. There are some tiny drawbacks considering the fairly high price (but they didn't detract from the overall score of 5 stars): The TV is a tad on the small side (normally we wouldn't have even watched, but the Olympics kicked off while we were in town). The bedroom is situated near some metal outside stairs. During ski season, be prepared for skiers in big ski boots to start coming down those metal stairs at about 7am. We were up anyway... but if you plan to sleep in and ski a little later - just know you will be hearing the loud clanging of ski boots in the am. None of this impeded us having a fabulous stay - we just want to give a thorough review for other vacationers. Great place - we'd stay again.
