Centrally located in the Roaring Fork Valley, the Van Horn House at Lions Ridge makes an ideal home base for your mountain getaway. Both winter and summer activities abound. In summer, there's scenic biking, hiking and whitewater rafting, horseback riding in Redstone, or into the Maroon Bells and elsewhere, as well as fishing along the Gold Medal trout rivers - the Roaring Fork and the Pan and Fork. We are surrounded by the White River National Forest and several wilderness areas.
In winter, of course, there is world-class skiing at one of the four mountains of the Aspen complex (something for everyone), or an easier day at Ski Sunlight outside of Glenwood Springs. You may also experience cross-country skiing on the Aspen Golf Course, the Snowmass Golf Course , or the historic ghost town of Ashcroft. Closer to Carbondale, enjoy the course at Spring Gulch. And experience a snowmobile ride or a romantic sleigh ride in the moonlight.
The Pink Room may well be Susan’s favorite room in the house. It is requested by all of our female relatives when they come to visit. Everyone loves the rocking chair in the reading nook, the back of which is draped with Susan’s pink satin receiving blanket (from many years ago).
A full breakfast is served, complete with juice, fresh fruit, entree, tea or coffee, and home baked muffins, sweetrolls, or coffeecake. Partake of perhaps a delicious omelette or honey-baked French toast, while enjoying the view of Mount Sopris or cozying-up to the fireplace. We do our best to accommodate special diet requests (surcharge for certain diets may apply). Just let us know in advance.
