The SpaceCome experience the Roaring Fork Valley's best kept secret! Located just 24 miles north of Aspen, near the quaint streets of historic downtown Basalt is the Frying Pan valley, where the famed gold medal waters of the Frying Pan River meander through dramatic red rock spires and steep mountain hillsides. Our classic Colorado A-Frame home is located five miles from downtown Basalt across the street from the Frying Pan River. Follow the steps right out your front door to the water's edge. Behind the house are the magical Seven Castles, a series of dramatic red rock spires that tower over the valley. Access the 7 Castles hike and climb a series of waterfalls from our back door. Located just one mile from a big horn sheep refuge, wildlife outnumbers humans in this quiet little mountainside hamlet. Up valley you'll discover an endless outdoor playground, beginning with the shores of Reudi Reservoir popular for boating, fishing, camping, paddle boarding, and picnicking on the scenic beaches. From there, continue on to Chapman Reservoir where motorized boats aren't allowed--ideal for kayaks and canoes. Easy access to White River National Forest and surrounding wilderness provides infinite possibilities for hiking, hunting, snow mobiling, cross country skiing and more. Discover Colorado's authentic side in Basalt, where the quaint downtown street is packed with shopping and dining that rivals what you might find in Aspen for a fraction of the price. From our location, you can have the best of both worlds with easy access to remote wilderness and all the amenities Basalt has to offer. Buses to Aspen run every 20 minutes from 6 a.m. to 2 a.m. from downtown Basalt. This cozy 1 bedroom/1 bath apartment with additional Murphy bed sleeps a maximum of 4 (two queen size beds) and has a large deck with gas grill surrounded by the steep forested hillside and lush terraced gardens that provide peace and privacy. Wi-fi, cable TV, and furnished kitchenette provide all the comforts of home. We live upstairs so you may hear us walking around, but there is no door connecting the two units and the lower level is very private. Enjoy a true Colorado getaway with all the amenities of Aspen at a fraction of the price. Ask us about fishing guide services that can grant you access to the private waters of Seven Castles Bend, located right across the street. We are happy to provide any information or guidance you need to plan your stay. We look forward to having you at the Margo A-Frame! Ali & Ryan Margo Guest AccessA FEW THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW: Cell Phone Reception is limited We live in a very remote area, between a steep mountain and red rock spires, so the cell phone reception isn't great. We typically get one bar and can send and receive texts, but calls get dropped. We do have a cordless phone and a landline for guests who want it. Satellite Internet isn't perfect We do have wireless and it is high speed but it isn't 100% reliable. Weather, technical issues and limited IP addresses do interfere with connectivity. If you are here on business and have to depend on being online, this might not be the place for you. If you are someone who just needs to check your email and your (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) page once and a while, you should be fine. 4WD Recommended in Winter We live on a dirt road that can get tricky after winter snow storms and is not maintained by the city. Four wheel drive is a must to get up to our house which is at the top of a steep grade. In summer, any vehicle is fine. We have a lot of stairs The apartment is on the lower level. There are 16 steps to get to the main house and 10 more to get to the apartment. If you are traveling with elderly, disabled or otherwise physically challenged people, this might not be appropriate for you. We are dog friendly. For most people, this is a good thing! WE DO ALLOW (and love) DOGS! Children are fine, too :) We have a 15-pound pug named Gertie. She thinks she is a badass, but she it utterly defenseless and will do just about anything for a treat. Interaction with GuestsGuests are always welcome to knock on our door, text us or call us if they need anything at all. We are happy to accommodate you and appreciate the opportunity to address any issues or problems you might have during your stay. We also respect your privacy, so don't feel obligated--just know we are here if you need us. The NeighborhoodWe live in a beautiful, rural area on a dirt road where the wildlife outnumber the people. It's a little busier in the summertime, when there are cyclists pedaling by, fisherman in the water across the street, and boat traffic heading up to Ruedi Reservoir, 9 miles up the street where you can go boating, paddle boarding, jet skiing, fishing, swimming, and more. Getting AroundThere is NO public transit within 5 miles of our house. A car is a must! Other Things to NoteThe apartment is on the lower level of our home. While it is very private and there is no door connecting the two units, we do live above the apartment and you may be able to hear us moving about upstairs.

The Space HI FISHERMAN, HUNTERS, TRAVELERS AND LOVERS OF THE OUTDOORS, JOIN US UNDER THE SEVEN CASTLES The full top floor of the house is available beginning October 1, 2013. You'll have the whole floor to yourself including 2 bedrooms, 1 bath and a cubby-hole kitchenette with basic conveniences. Come and go freely, and enjoy the outdoor decks and natural surroundings of the home. Plenty of outdoor parking for boats and RVs. ABOUT THE HOUSE: This 3-level home sits on four acres in a verdant valley between the gold medal Frying Pan River and the majestic Seven Castles rock formation. Miles of expanse of national forest rise up from your back door. Step outside for a hike along the old Stagecoach Road or through a "secret" gorge to the multi-tiered waterfalls, hop on your bike for a ride along the river road to the Ruedi Reservoir, or walk down to the "Pan" for a leisurely day of world-class fishing. All the attractions of a rugged, mountain vacation are at your fingertips, yet the quaint, historic town of Basalt is only a short scenic drive along the river. Here you'll find eclectic shopping, superb restaurants, art galleries, bike shop, gun store, antiques and several fine yoga centers. Just a bit further is the new Whole Foods store surrounded by more shopping and restaurants. Wildlife abounds under the Seven Castles. We've seen big horn sheep, deer, elk, foxes, bears, bald eagles, rabbits and coyotes. Winter months are often best for wildlife viewing. The night skies are dark in this peaceful setting, the stars are brilliant and the milky way often looks like a cloak floating across the sky. A 2nd floor covered deck stretches across the full front and sides of the house and is a lovely place for morning coffee or tea, or for soaking up the crisp night air and looking for a shooting star. A large mountainside deck to the back is a great place to congregate and share meals and stories of the valley. Details of the house are below. You may rent either a single bedroom with private bath or the entire top floor. In both cases, you'll have access to a small kitchenette (see features below) between the two rooms.

These 2 small bedrooms share a common ceiling & there are 2 tubs with shower, 2 toilets, and 2 sinks. They are perfect for lots of kiddies! The house's design, art and African theme, honors Edward Lee "Bud" Mulcahy whose life and legacy in Kapkesembe, Kenya was the subject of news articles in both Texas and Colorado. He took members from the communities of the Roaring Fork Valley and Dallas Fort Worth to bring clean water to a small village of 10,000 in Kenya. His life is summarized here: Mar 18, 1935 - May 26, 2015 May 27, 2015 Edward Lee "Bud" Mulcahy Comments (7) Edward Lee “Bud" Mulcahy died at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center on May 26th after a long battle with cancer. God indeed broke the mold when He created Bud. An extraordinary athlete, cowboy, and horseman, young Buddy committed his life to Jesus at the age of sixteen. His Horatio Alger story epitomized the American dream of hard work as his amazing lifestory has been featured in numerous news articles in Texas and Colorado. Growing up on a rural Texas farm without running water or electricity during the Depression, Bud was the first of his family to attend college, graduating from The University (of Texas) in 1959 with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. He married his college sweetheart and the love of his life for 58 years, Sandra Frances Mueller. Upon graduation, Bud worked in nuclear research at the University of California at Los Alamos. Later, he did post graduate work at SMU and while at LTV, Bud tested the Apollo space suit and the heat shield for NASA's Space Shuttle in his laboratory, publishing papers in thermal dynamics. In 1971, he left the corporate world and started his own business, Lee Engineering. After retiring, Bud traveled to Africa where he and Sandy befriended a butler from a Kenyan village without running water or electricity. Bud and a volunteer team from Texas and Aspen drilled a water well and the village named a newly established school Tillebei (clean water) “Bud" Academy. He is survived by his wife Sandy and children, Lee and Cynthia. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the charity Bud and Sandy founded: Africa Water Wells at Grace Covenant Church, 3402 W I-20, Arlington, TX 76017 (URL HIDDEN) (URL HIDDEN) or (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Bud Mulcahy Aspen Guest AccessMain house is on 4 plus acres.

The SpaceEnjoy panoramic views of the snow-capped Elk Range from a spacious "eco" home in Old Snowmass, convenient to both Aspen and Snowmass Village (25 minutes to each) and to Glenwood Springs (35 minutes). Your downstairs suite includes a bedroom with a Queen-size bed and a large bathroom, living room and min-kitchenette, which are only shared if both our downstairs rooms are rented at the same time (see my listing for the South BR). The living area has a fold-out full-size futon couch, so if you rent both North and South Bedrooms, you could actually sleep 6, with 2 on the living room futon. The mini-kitchenette includes a microwave, induction burner, fridge, sink, toaster, utensils, etc. As an architect and an artist, we carefully built our home with beams salvaged from Aspen demolitions, earthen plasters and other healthy, natural materials, and fresh air exchange. No fossil fuels here--our superefficient home is powered & heated by the sun and a toasty-warm, clean-burning wood pellet stove. We keep the home healthy with natural cleaning products and no smoking. While there is no cable TV, you'll have free wifi, and we welcome well-behaved pets. You will need a car because we are a couple miles (uphill) from the bus stop. But with a car, you’ll have access to all the valley has to offer, including Aspen/Snowmass ski slopes, shops, restaurants and entertainment, Glenwood’s hot springs pool, gold-medal fly fishing in Basalt, and the charming town of Carbondale where you can enjoy artsy shops, a rodeo in the summer or the ice skating pond in the winter. Our house adjoins BLM open space and you can hike up Light Hill right from our back yard, or you can drive to the trailheads of some of Colorado’s “14er” mountains or go on a mountain biking or rafting adventure. From our deck you can watch the hot air balloons land at dawn in the valley below. At times you'll be above the clouds and you may see hawks soaring below or elk grazing. In the evening, enjoy the mountains glowing in the setting sun, or take in the blazing Milky Way after dark. Guest AccessGuests are welcome to use the shared washer/dryer. Interaction with GuestsWhile Alexis and the kids are in CA, Douglas (husband/dad) is currently working on the property and is happy to provide advice about the region. The NeighborhoodOur neighborhood has some of the most spectacular views in the area, and it is a couple miles away from the main highway that runs up and down the valley, so it is quiet and the air is fresh and clean. Best of all, there are no city lights here, so on a clear night, you can clearly see the Milky Way! Getting AroundYou need a car to get to and from our house. The local bus will take you to Aspen, Snowmass Village, Glenwood Springs, and other charming local towns, but the bus stop is about 2-1/2 miles away! Sometimes we can help shuttle to- and from the bus stop, but this can't be guaranteed.

The great room features modern aesthetics and a gourmet kitchen with a spacious walk-out deck off the dining area. Your master suite has a king bed, walk-in closet, ensuite bath with shower plus deep soak claw-foot tub, and views of a natural canyon.

Note that the wall separating the "kids'" from the great room stops short of the 13' ceiling so it is audibly connected to the great room, but visually private. Downstairs there are two bedrooms, a huge bathroom and a family room with a mini-kitchenette. The downstairs suite is currently "offline" but we can make additional rooms available for an additional charge upon request. The downstairs suite has 2 bedrooms, 1 large bath, a mini-kitchenette and family room.

The SpaceEnjoy panoramic views of the snow-capped Elk Range from a spacious "eco" home in Old Snowmass, convenient to both Aspen and Snowmass Village (25 minutes to each) and to Glenwood Springs (35 minutes). Your downstairs suite includes a bedroom with a Queen-size bed and a large bathroom, living room and mini-kitchenette, which are only shared if both our downstairs rooms are rented at the same time (see my listing for the North BR). The living area has a fold-out full-size futon couch, so if you rent both North and South Bedrooms, you could actually sleep 6, with 2 on the living room futon. The mini-kitchenette includes a microwave, induction burner, fridge, sink, toaster, utensils, etc. If you would prefer to do more elaborate cooking, we recommend you rent the upstairs suite instead. As an architect and an artist, we carefully built our home with beams salvaged from Aspen demolitions, earthen plasters and other healthy, natural materials, and fresh air exchange. No fossil fuels here--our superefficient home is powered & heated by the sun and a toasty-warm, clean-burning wood pellet stove. We keep the home healthy with natural cleaning products and no smoking. While there is no cable TV, you'll have free wifi, and we welcome well-behaved pets. You will need a car because we are a couple miles (uphill) from the bus stop. But with a car, you’ll have access to all the valley has to offer, including Aspen/Snowmass ski slopes, shops, restaurants and entertainment, Glenwood’s hot springs pool, gold-medal fly fishing in Basalt, and the charming town of Carbondale where you can enjoy artsy shops, a rodeo in the summer or the ice skating pond in the winter. Our house adjoins BLM open space and you can hike up Light Hill right from our back yard, or you can drive to the trailheads of some of Colorado’s “14er” mountains or go on a mountain biking or rafting adventure. From our deck you can watch the hot air balloons land at dawn in the valley below. At times you'll be above the clouds and you may see hawks soaring below or elk grazing. In the evening, enjoy the mountains glowing in the setting sun, or take in the blazing Milky Way after dark. Guest AccessGuests are welcome to use the shared washer/dryer. Interaction with GuestsWhile Alexis and the kids are in CA, Douglas (husband/dad) is currently working on the property and is happy to provide advice about the region. The NeighborhoodOur neighborhood has some of the most spectacular views in the area, and it is a couple miles away from the main highway that runs up and down the valley, so it is quiet and the air is fresh and clean. Best of all, there are no city lights here, so on a clear night, you can clearly see the Milky Way! Getting AroundYou need a car to get to and from our house. The local bus will take you to Aspen, Snowmass Village, Glenwood Springs, and other charming local towns, but the bus stop is about 2-1/2 miles away! Sometimes we can help shuttle to- and from the bus stop, but this can't be guaranteed.

                The SpaceMaybe you are an outdoor enthusiast; FISHERMAN, BOATER, SKIER (especially back country), HIKER, BIKER, etc. Maybe you are an ARTIST or WRITER looking for a place to create & for inspiration. Perhaps you are a SEEKER of magic, spiritual peace, or MEDITATION. If you've said "yes" to any of these, then the Ruedi Reservoir/Ruedi Creek area is the place to be. It is a mecca for breath-taking mountain wilderness beauty, wildlife, outdoor activities, as well as peace & quiet! It IS truly a magical place. The guesthouse is a spacious, but cozy studio apartment with beautiful views & a treehouse-like feel. It's nestled on 6.5 acres of aspen, fir, & spruce trees, with a small running stream nearby, as well as a creek running through another part of the property. Lie back, unwind, & relax. Enjoy watching the birds fly & greet you on your private deck. In the summer months, enjoy dining "al fresco" at your charming mosaic table on the deck. Other amenities include: a fully-stocked & newly remodeled full-sized kitchen with a vintage professional gas range; a newly remodeled bathroom & shower with artful mosaic tile work (done by yours truly : ) ); a wonderfully comfortable king-sized bed, & a comfy queen-sized futon, both with high quality linens; big, fluffy bath towels, a charming gas fireplace, which puts out great heat; plenty of clothes hanging space & drawer space, so you can really make yourself at home. LGBT friendly. *MMJ friendly (please enjoy smoking it outside).* Guest AccessGuests have access to the 2nd floor guesthouse apartment with its own private deck, which is located above the 3 car garage on the left side of the driveway. Entrance to the guesthouse is located up the stone steps to the right of the garage, & up the stairs to the deck. Guest parking is available straight ahead at the end of the driveway, & next to the garage. At this time, there is no guest parking available in the garage. While you are a guest here, you are welcome to walk around & enjoy the 6.5 acre property. Interaction with GuestsHere & there, I have events & things to do that will bring me into town during the day or evening, however, when I am available, I'm happy to help in any way that I can. You are welcome to stop by the main house to say hello during your stay, & I also respect if you prefer your privacy. The NeighborhoodWe are in a small neighborhood of roughly 13 private homes. It is a quiet, peaceful, mountain paradise, completely surrounded by the USFS White River National Forest. Getting AroundAs mentioned above, there are loads of activities to occupy your time in this area, if you so desire. The Ruedi Reservoir is a 5 mile stretch of water & is only a mile down the road. You can enjoy anything from motor-boating & water skiing, to canoeing, kayaking, & stand-up paddle boarding. This area is also known for its Gold Medal fishing waters, where you can enjoy world class fly fishing 2 miles down the road on the Frying Pan River. The nearby Frying Pan Road is popular for road biking, & is the scenic roadway that takes you to numerous hiking & mountain biking trails, jeep trails, as well as back country skiing. Access trails to 2 of the 10th Mountain Division huts are within a 30 minute drive. RESORT SKIING If you are interested in resort skiing or snowboarding, of course, Aspen has some of the best terrain in the world! There are 4 ski/snowboard resorts in the Aspen area, & all are within a 1 hour drive. Aspen Mountain (or Ajax, as the locals call it) is located right in Aspen's downtown area, & has mostly advanced, with expert & some intermediate terrain. Aspen Highlands is about a 10 minute drive southwest of Ajax & is, in my humble opinion, the best of the best in the area. If you like it steep, deep, & challenging, this is the place! Take a short cat ride to hike (or hike it the whole way) the roughly 1 mile trail to Highlands Bowl. Enjoy unbelievable views of the Maroon Bells as you ascend your way to the top, & then blissfully ski/board your way down on epic steep wide open bowl terrain, or glades. For beginners, a short 5 minute drive northwest of Aspen Highlands, is Buttermilk; it's a laid back, cruisy little area that, like the rest of the Aspen area, has amazing views, but offers a low-pressure place to learn or hone your skiing, or riding skills. Lastly, about a 15 minute ride northwest of Buttermilk, is Snowmass. Snowmass has just about everything a skier or rider could want, with a fairly broad range of terrain, from beginner & intermediate, to expert & extreme, as well as some fun board & ski parks to practice your tricks on. Snowmass is another favorite of mine. THE LOCAL TOWNS The town of Basalt is the closest & is a 25 minute, scenic drive along the Frying Pan River on Frying Pan Road. When you arrive, you will find a charming little downtown area with some quaint, high quality restaurants & shops. There are also a couple angler's shops, a small market, 2 gas stations, a library, & a post office. Access to Highway 82 is just on the west side of downtown. It will take you to Aspen on the far south end (& in the summer months over the breathtaking scenic byway, Independence Pass). I believe it goes without saying, that Aspen is the ritz & glitz of the Colorado Western Slope. Big, glamorous homes, as well as high-end shops & boutiques, nice restaurants, & galleries galore. But don't let that scare you, there are some reasonably priced, down-to-earth places to shop & eat, as well. Ask me about some of my favorites! Going northbound, within about 5 minutes of Basalt, you will find the Willits area & nearby El Jebel, with Whole Foods, City Market, movie theaters, as well as several other shops & restaurants. The charming town of Carbondale is another 15 - 20 minute drive north on Highway 82; it boasts a thriving artist community (check out the First Friday art walk!), & some great little restaurants & bars--not to mention some of the best thrift store shopping in the Roaring Fork Valley! There's also a beautiful yoga studio in town called True Nature. The design of & the artifacts within the space are just beautiful, & unlike any other studio I've been to. I love the stretch yoga class! This class gives you time to really sink into your poses & free up range of motion. Lastly, & certainly not least, is Glenwood Springs on the far north end of 82 (about 20 - 25 minutes from Carbondale); hot springs activities abound! Enjoy the Glenwood Hot Springs Pool, the historic Yampa Hot Springs Vapor Caves, & the new Iron Mountain Hot Springs pools. [If you're lucky enough to be in the area when Ute Chief, Kenny Frost is leading a sweat lodge ceremony, at the Yampa Hot Springs Vapor Caves, it's a wonderful, spiritual, healing event, not to be missed!] Glenwood also has a large shopping area on the west side of town, if you're in need of the big store conveniences of Lowes, Target, Pet Smart, Bed, Bath & Beyond, & Sports Authority. BTW, in this same big store area, there happens to be a Vitamin Cottage/Natural Grocers, which is my absolute favorite grocery store; absolutely all of their produce is organic & they focus on buying from local vendors. Some more towns worth mentioning, are along Highway 133, which runs east & west from the north edge of Carbondale. It is the gateway to the Crystal River & North Fork River valleys. The gorgeous & historic towns Red Stone & Marble are within approximately a 40 minute drive west of Carbondale, & if you continue roughly another 50 minutes or so from Marble, & on the west side of McClure Pass, you will find Paonia, & nearby Hotchkiss, small agricultural towns, with big ideas about organic farming. There you will find orchards, vineyards, & small farm stands & markets. Other Things to Note*FYI: there is no cell service up here, & though there is WiFi internet, it's not the best bandwidth. Unfortunately, satellite internet is the only option in this area (the downside of living in paradise). However, you should be able to send & receive emails, & browse the internet. Streaming, or using Facetime/(SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) are not advised. *4 wheel drive is a must for access October - May (these tend to be the snowy months). Our road is well-maintained, but there are steep grades & curves. Snow tires are also recommended. If you are flying into Colorado, most rental car companies stock 4 wheel drive vehicles, available for your rental during these winter season months. Be sure to request such when you make your car reservation. **ORGANIC, GLUTEN-FREE COOKING: Send me a note if you are interested in having me prepare you BREAKFAST or DINNER. There will be an additional fee for meals, which is not included in the housekeeping fee, or rental rate. Also, please let me know at least 48 hours in advance of your stay, if you'd like any meals prepared (along with which day & meal, as well as any food allergies). You may decide it's worth spending a little extra for a prepared meal here & there, since it's about a 25 minute drive to town--&--I can't think of a restaurant anywhere in the valley that offers a completely organic & gluten-free menu! [Plus, I'm a great cook! : )]
