This week, we keep it simple: The 5 Best Aspen Lodging Properties. Straightforward and to the point, we tackle the topic head on. There's no shortage of vacation rentals in Aspen, so even sifting through the massive inventory is a daunting task, let alone making a decision. To help us, we recruited Frias Properties reservations manager Mike Duffy. Mike helps vacationers from around the world plan the perfect Aspen vacation, so he knows all the ins and outs of Aspen lodging.
Here's our 5 Best Aspen Lodging Properties, in no particular order.
Offering 2 bedroom standard and deluxe units. Additionally, one 4-bedroom luxury unit. Why do guests like this complex? It's convenient for skiing Aspen Mountain. Shadow Mountain, 800 S. Aspen St.
Mike's comments:" This complex is across from historic Lift 1A on Aspen Mountain. There are not many ski in/ski out lodging options on Aspen Mountain. The terrain at Lift 1A is some of the best on Aspen Mountain. My personal favorite area to ski! Due to its ski in-ski location, it is very popular in the winter. In the summer, you will have a nice view of the town and surrounding mountain landscape, especially Red Mountain.
