Today, we're going to focus on two top-floor units - #8 and #30 - that are both great rental options.

Located on the north end of the building, this condo features an updated kitchen with granite counter tops and a breakfast bar with bar stools. The living room has a sofa, love seat and two separate leather chairs - all around a flatscreen TV and wood-burning fireplace - making this unit very cozy and comfortable. There's also a dining area that seats 6.
Outside on the deck is a gas barbecue grill and patio seating, offering indoor and outdoor dining options. Other amenities include a dishwasher and a washer/dryer.
The master bedroom has a king bed, flatscreen TV, sitting area and an en suite bathroom. Both guest bedrooms offer two twin beds each - so this unit sleeps 6!
Kevin's comments: This unit would be perfect for anyone looking for plenty of living space along with all the traditional amenities of a chain hotel - and then some. The complex heated pool and hot tub, conference center, gym and sauna are located in the very next building - so guests who book Unit #8 do not have to go far! If you want to be close to everything, but still have some privacy, this unit could be for you!
This top floor corner unit is located on the south side of the complex, offering optimal, unobstructed views of the Roaring Fork River. With vaulted ceilings and sliding glass doors on the south and east side of the living area, this condominium is light and bright with plenty of sunshine!

Kevin's comments: An extremely popular unit, so book early! With windows and sliding doors on two sides of the living area, this condo is unique. It offers great views of the river from the top floor. Since it's a top floor corner unit, guests can really feel secluded from everything and just enjoy the mountain views and sights and sounds of the Roaring Fork River. Just like Unit #8, guests of Chateau Roaring Fork #30 have full access to all of the amenities offered above. If you're looking for a condominium that's a perfect fit for kids, this may be it!
