“Top Aspen Location and View for Family of 4 or Less”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

The Prospector Aspen offers a breathtaking view and convenient location that really can't be beat.

The furnishings are comfortable and clean. The unit we stayed in had one bedroom (with extremely comfortable bed), a murphy bed in the dining room and a sofa bed in the living room. Even though it had two full bathrooms and two nice sized closets, it may be more appropriate for a family than for two couples to share.

The unit's kitchen has a small refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker and electric griddle, but no cooktop or oven. It works great for a short trip or if you plan to eat out, but if you enjoy cooking every meal, this might not meet your needs.

There is a public walkway between the home and Wagner Park/Aspen Mountain, that gets a decent amount of foot traffic. It's not too noisy and offers a lot of positive energy and movement for the area. We saw it as a positive, but if you like privacy, I might suggest you choose a 3rd level unit - especially if you plan to heavily use the private spa or sauna.

The unit is heated, but no cooling. If you're staying in the summer, be prepared to enjoy opening the sliding doors to let the breeze flow through. (There are locking screens to prevent any pests from coming in with the wind.)

Hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.

My adult daughter an I have stayed here the past 2 years on our trip to Aspen. They are very spacious condos, individually owned that face Wagner Park. A very short walk to the Ruby Park main bus termnal and very close to restaurants/shops. Each has a balcony with your own hot tub facing the open park and there is a view of Aspen mountain ( but not from the basement units which cost less). There were 2 bathrooms, a queen bedroom and a large open space in the middle of the condo with a queen(?) murphy bed. The murphy bed was not nearly as comfortable as the wonderful bed in the bedroom when we pulled it down one afternoon to test it. I believe the large sofa in the living room is a sleeper also. There is more storage space than a whole family could ever need even if you have teenage girls! Kitchenette wall has small fridge, toaster oven, microwave, coffee maker and lots of utensils, dishes,sink and kitchen cleaning supplies. Even coffee filters. Living room has a fireplace and a small diningtable/chairs along with a big swivel "Daddy" chair. It is a comfy, homey place at a reasonable price. It is NOT the luxury of the Little Nell or Jerome. It seems this would suit families with children the best. Whomever is sleeping on the murphy bed will have no privacy since it is a mostly open area and people sleeping in the front bedroom need to walk through ths area to get to the kitchen/living room. Even though the back bedroom faces the street it was pretty quiet. There is free shuttle service from the airport MOST of the time during normal business hours, make sure you let them, know when you will be arriving. It is run by a management service so the office is closed after 5pm I believe. It is well maintained and there is excellent housekeeping everyday. I believe you can see their floorplans online. No car needed here, parking is a major problem in Aspen.

Room Tip: 2nd and 3rd floors have view of aspen mountain and more light. 1st flr basement units have patio but...

You can't beat the location or the price on these condos each featuring a wood burning fireplace and a private hot tub. Literally just steps from the Aspen walking mall. Unobstructed views of Aspen Mtn. as the Rugby field is situated between the condo and the mtn. This is a fractional ownership property that rents as a hotel as well. Underground covered parking as well as onsight laundry facilities too.

Room Tip: floors 2 or 3 and the higher number rooms offer stronger views.

First time in Aspen and we found this Gem of a place. The condo was beautiful and it felt inviting and homely. Loved it so much we decided to stay in that night to eat, and make the most of the outside Hot tub and sauna. Immaculately kept and well equipped.
We met Scott the manager next morning, a lovely man who is really genuine, . helpful and friendly.
On our list to stay longer next year. Can't wait!

I've stayed at this place for the past 8+ years. It's a fractional ownership complex that rents out units when the owners choose not to use them. It's in a great location right in town. No need for a car as you have just short walks to all the resturants, shops, Aspen gondola, and the buses to Highlands, Buttermilk and Snowmass. The units I've rented typically had a bedroom with full bath, a separate alcove with a murphy bed and full bath, living room with sofa bed, fireplace, hot-tub and small eating area. The small kitchen doesn't have a stove or oven, but does have a large toaster oven, micro, refrig, coffee maker, electric griddle and all the dishes etc. you could need. Most of the units have views of mountain, but even the ones that don't are still great. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the units are cleaned daily.

Stayed at Prospector 31/1-3/2. Couldn't fault the place - short walk to ski buses for Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk and Snowmass and just a couple of blocks more to Aspen Mtn base. 2nd floor condo 2xdouble beds both very comfortable with bathrooms en-suite. Sauna, hot-tub and log-fire. Stunning views of mountain and close to all amenities and the main restaurants/bars. Staff couldn't do enough for you.
