First Home: BIG Mountain Lodge

Hosts: Peter Westcott, Kate Friesen


Our hand built log and stone home is in the central Roaring Fork Valley, a little closer to Aspen than Glenwood Springs. We have stunning views of the Rocky Mountains, and a delightful house and yard from which to enjoy the views. Our home has a cozy, rustic feel, and there are incredible opportunities for recreation in the area. Amenities include a wood stove, a porch with hammocks, a fire pit in the front yard, a wood burning sauna in the back, a community swimming pool and tennis court in the summer, and cross country skiing, hiking or biking right from the door.

We have a rural feel, with preserved open space to the north, east and south. We’re on three acres, but it feels much larger because of the open space in three directions. We’re perched three miles above the highway (so there’s easy access to shopping and local communities, with a great bus system connecting the valley), with inspiring views of the mountains. Wildlife abounds, with sightings of deer, fox, coyote, elk and many birds. The weather is often delightful, with warm (not hot) summers and snowy winters — definitely distinct seasons. We’re about a half hour from the ski slopes of Aspen or the hot springs and other attractions of Glenwood Springs.

Bedrooms: Claire’s room has a double bed and a tree fort (yes, you have to climb a tree) with a twin mattress in it. Children should probably be at least 5 or 6 to use this bed.

Tae’s room has a queen bed and a sleeping loft with 2 twin mattresses, which is accessed by a ladder.

We also have a study room with a queen pullout platform bed, so we can accommodate a large family.

Bathrooms: Both Claire and Tae’s room share a bathroom which is not attached to either. The shower for guests is downstairs in another bathroom.

House rules: No smoking inside the house.
Children must be supervised in the sauna or on the fireman’s pole
If something breaks, please let us know.

Rates: $75 for one bedroom, $130 for two

Minimum / maximum stay: Two nights minimum, flexible maximum

General availability: We travel fairly often and rent out our house (for bigger bucks!) on VRBO and AirBnB. We welcome you whenever we’re home, but you will need to contact us for availability. Breakfast: At a minimum a continental breakfast is available, often more.
