*"First Fridays" of each month feature evening blocked-off Main Street with music, food trucks, dancing, and small-town community revelry Interaction with GuestsAs hosts we want to interact as much or as little as you like. Please let us know, since we love good company and meeting people, but also respect privacy. We are passionate about Carbondale and the Roaring Fork Valley and as long-time locals we are happy to make recommendations, provide tips and loan hiking maps. We would also love to hear of your favorite explorations while you're here while we enjoy a glass of wine or beer together on our deck. The NeighborhoodFriendly and quiet, safe family-oriented neighborhood. No traffic. On street parking near your private gated entrance is never a problem. Of course we do live within walking distance to the middle and high schools, so seasonal football and soccer game cheers add to a lively evening ambiance. If you happen to visit during a full moon, the traditional 300+ full-moon cruisers sometimes pedal their bicycles through our neighborhood. It's a family affair for all ages that you may be tempted to join in.
