This week, Frias Properties staff photographer Kevin Burton continues his blog series called aEUoeBehind the Lens,aEU detailing recently photographed units managed by Frias Properties. In this installment, Kevin focuses on three popular rentals close to downtown Aspen - Aspen Mountain Townhouse B, Chateau Roaring Fork #31 and Fasching Haus #260. Over the last few weeks, I've been very busy catching up on photography for the website. Between current owners making improvements to existing inventory, plus adding new inventory, it keeps me hopping. So, lets take a few minutes to highlight some great properties offered for vacation rental in the Aspen downtown core.

Aspen Mountain Townhouse B - FULL REMODEL! Wow! Spectacular, contemporary 3-bedroom, 3-bath standard townhouse only two blocks from Lift 1A and walking distance to downtown and the Silver Queen Gondola. Enjoy a prime location in the Galena Street Neighborhood, an area known for its convenience and quality. Open living and dining area with fireplace. Kitchen has new stainless appliances, dishwasher, laundry closet. Formal dining area. A light and bright unit! Top floor master bedroom, two bedrooms on lower level. Flat screen TV in living area and all bedrooms. Enjoy free Aspen airport transfers, free wireless internet and on-site free parking. Guests receive complimentary passes to the Aspen Club & Spa. (Passes to the Aspen Club & Spa can be obtained from any Frias Properties front desk during regular business hours.) Kevin's notes: Much improved, yet still affordable, unit. Everything is new and fresh. Very contemporary feel. Excellent location for summer or winter. Easy (walking) access to historic Lift 1A, the Silver Queen Gondola and downtown. You can walk everywhere! This condominium is priced right (value!) and would be great for a young family with slightly older children (age 8+) that wouldn't mind sleeping alone on the lower level. The upper level master is open and roomy, and has a great window with blinds that can open or close electronically. Kitchen has stainless appliances and a dishwasher, so it's great for cooking and entertaining. This is quickly becoming one of the more popular units that we offer at Frias Properties!

Chateau Roaring Fork #31 - NEW INVENTORY! Near the river! Comfortable with plenty of space, this 2-bedroom, 2-bath standard condominium is only four blocks from the gondola and is even closer to downtown Aspen. Enjoy the sounds of the nearby Roaring Fork River. The free local bus route, with access to all four ski mountains, is located right outside. Amenities include a stone wood-burning fireplace and flat screen TV in the main living area and an updated kitchen with granite counter tops. Include washer/dryer and dishwasher. Complex amenities at the Chateau Roaring Fork include an on-site heated pool and hot tubs, workout center, conference room, free Aspen airport transfers, free on-site parking, free wireless internet, and complimentary passes to the Aspen Club & Spa. Kevin's notes: Another great place for a family, as it has two twins in the guest bedroom. If you enjoy the river, this is your place. Located near the majestic Roaring Fork River, this unit offers easy access to many of the excellent hiking and biking trails nearby. Perfect location - close to everything but allows for peace, quiet and serenity. The stone fireplace in the living area would be great to gather around after a long day of outdoor adventure, and there's even a large flat screen TV in the living area to help you unwind. This unit is great in the summer, but also affordable in the winter! The free bus right outside makes it easy to get anywhere, including all four ski mountains - Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highland, Buttermilk and Snowmass. Also, consider Chateau Roaring Fork for your group or family gathering, as it has its own 1,100-square-foot conference room with a heated pool, hot tubs and fitness center. Book now! This unit will be very popular during the warm-weather months. For more info on groups, contact Frias Group Sales Manager Lisa Jennings at (970) 429-2453 or e-mail
