The Most Luxurious Cabin I Have Ever Seen in Aspen

Featured

Colorado does have summer too. I know a lot of people who only go in the winter to go skiing. I like to go with my family in the summer for a vacation too. The ski resorts must bring in a lot of big money people as there are some really luxurious places to stay in Aspen. We like wooded areas with plenty of mountain scenery, but we also like swimming pools, hot tubs and top-notch luxury amenities in our lodging when we take a vacation. We looked for luxury cabin rentals in Aspen for our last vacation.

We stayed in a large and superbly luxurious log cabin. It has three bedrooms and 3.5 baths. There was a really cool bunk area for the kids where they had their own TV.

The great plain that yawned before us was the size of a county in my native state of South Carolina. It had grasses and bushes up to six feet tall, some trees, and several streams.

Bison, elk, deer, moose, and other wildlife of the Grand Teton National Park, including both types of bears (Black and Grizzly) might be seen on the plain. The best time to see them was at twilight and in darkness, with the exception that the bull elk were out during daylight too, yodeling for female elk to come to them to be herded and impregnated. My wife and I had eaten an early breakfast so that we could stand out there in the cold crisp air of morning twilight. We saw moose, some otters, and eagles. There
