Aspen Vacation Rentals: Powder-Covered Slopes

by Cedric Agravante

Anyone who thinks of Aspen, Colorado is immediately reminded of powder covered mountains, high dollar ski lodges and a winter vacation getaway. This is one reason to visit Aspen - however there are three other seasons in which Aspen offers many other incredible things to do and see. For a one-time visit, a hotel may be your preferred lodging. However, once you see that Aspen is a hot-spot year round, you may be more interested in an Aspen vacation rental such as a townhome or a time share. Fortunately you are not the only one to think of this, so the resources are abundant.

The most popular winter activities in Aspen, CO include skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling and snowshoeing. The powder-white snow will entice any ski enthusiast to test their skills on any one of the different experience levels. If you are not much of a skier, you can simply take in the amazing winter air and scenery as you ride the ski lift to the top of the mountain. Once you arrive, enjoy a meal at one of the mountain-top restaurants as you look out onto the snow-covered mountains. When you're through dining and enjoying the view, you can take the ski lift back down to the bottom of the mountain and enjoy hot chocolate and a warm fire in your choice of ski lodges.

Popular Summer Outdoor Activities

In the summer, popular outdoor activities that Aspen has to offer include a myriad of outdoor activities. Bicycling, hiking, skateboarding and many other activities will keep even the most fanatical outdoorsman busy at any time of the day. If it is culture you desire, Aspen will not disappoint you. The Aspen Music Festival and School is a summer-long celebration in which the world's most talented, skillful and promising musicians, young and old, convene to perform, listen, learn, teach, and enjoy the art of Music. If you are a food and wine enthusiast, you may enjoy the Chili Pepper Fest, Vintner Dinners and the Food & Wine Classic. Aspen is also home to several art and film festivals all year round.

Vacation rentals in Aspen are available in a wide variety of prices, and accommodation types. Whether you are looking for a hotel room, a quaint cabin, townhome, condo or even a house, they're available if you know where to look. To find the best deals, you may want to use a travel agency or a company specializing in this particular region. Any vacation destination that is as popular as this town will have travel agency and rental services that specialize in that particular area, and will often have the best insight to help you find what you need.

Prices of Aspen Vacation Rentals

The price of a vacation rental varies greatly depending upon the size, location and amenities you need or want. A simple hotel room with limited features can be found for less than a hundred dollars per night. If you are on a budget, traveling alone or with a friend and don't plan to spend much time in your room, this is a good option. For a more luxurious stay and especially if you need accommodations for more than one or two guests, you may be more interested in renting a townhome or condo.

Condos and townhomes range in size and features just as much as hotels do. The difference between these and hotel rooms are that they are more like an actual home. They will usually have a kitchen, living room, dining room and more than one bathroom depending on how many bedrooms there are. You can get a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo or townhome for anywhere from three hundred per night to seven hundred.

For large groups, you can even rent a seven bedroom home for a little under $3000 per night that will sleep up to sixteen people. This is actually a very affordable option for groups, as it equals out to about $190 per night per person. The bottom line is that, just like any vacation destination, you will want to do your research. You may find that you have so much fun in Aspen that you want to make it an annual trip or even more.
