Chateau Roaring Fork
Ranked #21 of 31 Speciality Lodging in Aspen
Reviewed 16 January 2011

This was our 4th time at Chateau Roaring Fork. We stayed in #6. It was roomy and clean. The kitchen was well kept and had all of the things we needed. The washer and dryer are a plus. Great beds. We walked into town, it is very close to everything but you still feel like you are in the mountians. You can walk to Aspen Mountian. The pool is clean and heated. Great hot tub. Easy to get to public transportation for the festivals.

I found this place on VRBO.com - from the description and pictures the owner provided the condo seemed nice and clean with a heated pool and hot tubs open year round. Added bonus was that no pets were allowed.

I specifically asked the owner where my 7-year-old daugher would be able to sleep, since there was only 1 bed in the condo. He said there was a nice air mattress we could pump up or make up a bed on the couch - he said extra bedding is provided.

When we arrived at the condo we were greeted with a large dumpster full of trash in the middle of the parking lot. We found the pool and hot tubs - to our disappointment they were covered up and a sign was posted that they were closed.

The condo itself upon first inspection was clean and tidy. A bit dated, with original cabinets dating from the 1970's (painted white). Lots of beams and that wood siding reminiscent of the 1970's - had been white washed. The furniture was cheap and stained in several places.

I found the extra bedding for my daughter. It consisted of 2 stained pillows, and 2 worn out blankets, one of the blankets was so worn out that it had a large hole in it. No sheets or pillow cases were provided.

By 10pm that night my allergies were so bad that we were conteplating a visit to the emergency room as I was having a full blown asthma attack. Since pets are not allowed in the unit - the only other culprit that can send me over the edge is MOLD. Given the age of the condo - circa 1970's and lack of upkeep on the building it wouldn't surprise me if there was mold throughout the walls.

My suggestion to the owner is to spend $50 at Target to purchase extra sheets, blankets and new pillows. Check into Mold Inspection/Mitigation - or have the carpets professionally cleaned - as previous renters might be sneaking their cats and dogs into the unit.

MonogramProperties, Owner at Chateau Roaring Fork, responded to this reviewResponded 11 January 2011

As the owner of 19B, I must respond to Kim1's misrepresentations of this property, and this lovely complex.

I will simply start with the mystifying fact that this tenant never once contacted me about her concerns about the property. I not only provide my cell phone number to all tenants, but also contact phone numbers for the management company, Frias Properties, either of which could have addressed nearly all of her concerns.

I will first start with the closed pool. The pool and hot tubs are indeed closed between April 15th and May 31st, the timeframe of Kim1's visit. However, the complex offers complimentary passes to the nearby Aspen Club that has an indoor pool, hot tubs, steam rooms, and a fantastic fitness center.

Any tenant who properly checks in at the Frias Properties office to obtain their mandatory parking pass for the complex is notified about the passes to the Aspen Club.

"a dumpster in the middle of the parking lot"- The complex provides a dumpster in a fenced in area ADJACENT to the parking lot that is emptied daily at approximately 10:00 am.

Kim1's Allergies- The bedding (6 pillows and comforter) in the master bedroom of this unit are 100% goose down and are made by Ralph Lauren, and the sheets are 400 thread count Egyptian cotton. Since the HOA does not allow renters to have pets in the complex it is highly unlikely that any kind of pets had been in this unit. I can only guess that perhaps Kim1 is allergic to goose down. There has also been never been a water problem in the bedroom that would contribute to a mold issue and be responsible for her allergic reaction.

Air Mattress for her daughter- The unit is advertised as suitable for (2) tenants, not 3 (that's why there is no pull out couch). I borrowed an air mattress from one of my other units to accommodate Kim1's request for a child. There are 8 pillows provided in the unit, as well as 3 separate blankets.

I will concede that the cabinets in the unit are old, but the kitchen is very well equipped with caphlon pots and pans, full glassware, flatware and place setting for 6 people.

This unit also has a brand new entertainment cabinet with a Samsung fat screen TV, stereo, wireless internet, DVD player , i-pod docking station, brand new dining room table and new leather bar stools. It also features a solid oak Henredon sleigh bed and night stand in the bedroom and has a newly updated bathroom.

I will close by saying that this unit offers great value given its location. It overlook the Roaring Fork River and is less than 3 blocks from the gondola. Kim1 paid a mere $99 per night for this unit. I contend this is a GREAT value, even in the off-season for a 750 square ft unit in the heart of Aspen.

I can only apologize for her bad experience, but I can’t help those who can’t be bothered to pick up a phone and help themselves through a constructive dialog, or ask simply ask questions to me as the landlord.

My wife and 2 small children (7 and 9 ) recently stayed 7 nights at this condo complex during winter Jan 2006. The condo was a 2BR 2 bath offering, extremely spacious, warm , well fitted out on the ground floor. Very quiet. Both bathrooms had full size baths with excellent showers. Kitchen was adequate with large fridge, oven, electric cook top, microwave and all utensils one could need. Lounge was large and open with open fire if needed, TV, CD, Video, radio plenty of seating, dining table with 4 chairs and 4 bar stools. Main Bed room was large with a queen bed and extra TV plus en suite. Second BR was spacious with 2 single beds. Overall rating very good. Condo is serviced every day with beds made and towels changed. . The location was 3 blocks from the Ruby park bus terminus about a 5 minute walk without ski boots. Location is also on the town free skiers shuttle running every 20 minutes until 2am so this was very convenient. After skiing the walk back from Ruby park was slow with the kids so we often took the shuttle. Well recommended and much better value than other expensive properties in town which can cost a lot more. Would definitely stay again. As a comparison we saw Aspen Square and their 2BR condos are about half the size and a lot more expensive but more central.
