Crystal River Cabin
Your Sanctuary in the Heart of Colorado
Welcome to the Crystal River Cabin - our home away from the city! This beautiful custom solid wood cabin is perched directly on the Crystal River in central Colorado, between the towns of Redstone and Marble; and a short distance from Aspen, Snowmass, Glenwood Springs, and other popular destinations.
Enjoy incredible peace and tranquility, beautiful surroundings on all sides, and tons of outdoor activities from a central location. Many of the most incredible and iconic views in Colorado are minutes away. Take a day hike to waterfalls or use the house as a base camp for extended backpacking, fishing, or hunting trips. Take a 4x4 through the Crystal Valley to the ghost towns and high altitude views of the Rockies. Relax with a soak in the natural hot springs all around us. Go fishing out the back door.
Or aspire to do nothing: open a bottle and lounge in the backyard along the river.
We are a family of four with a couple mountain dogs, and we live here frequently when you do not. Come enjoy the mountain life as we do!
