Adam's Return and Fishbrain Resort is a family affair and has been in our family for nearly 150 years. It is now our honor and pleasure to share it with you.

"Adam's Return" property is comprised of a three-bedroom, two-bath main house (what is priced here), a bunkhouse and event prep area, three lots with gorgeous outdoor views of the entire valley, outdoor seating, swings, and playthings, a garage, a gear shack, a private lake, and a riverfront. All of this together is what we lovingly refer to as "Fishbrain Resort". Pricing here is for the main home, and the other features and/or experiences can be rented at cost for events, and...we are pet friendly :-)

Allen, or "Dad" as we call him, serves as the full-time manager living on property in the bunkhouse. I, Adam, served as a professional property manager to one of Aspen's most well-healed estates for nearly a decade. Now with a little one, and dad getting older, I have returned home to turn our families heritage into a memorable rustic getaway for you and yours.

We rent the main home "Adam's Return" a three-bedroom two-bath historic structure year-round. We are pet friendly and love families, and mountain getaways.

"Fishbrain Resort" is far more than just the home, however. Our grounds are where memories are made and we are equipped to deliver life-changing experiences.

We have ample space for weddings, retreats, yoga getaways, and anything else your heart may desire. That thing yo have been dreaming about but wondering how you can find the space in Aspen, or where it might be affordable, this is it! We have a private lake and river and offer fishing adventures, bbq cookouts, nighttime bonfires with s' mores, ATV tours, and more. I can also serve as a local tour-guide, ski-guide, hiking-guide, and more with my lifetime of knowledge of our valley.

Ok... a little more about the property.

The home itself is a three bedroom two bathroom affair. It is a beautiful 1800's cabin with modern metal rooves. Nestled in a 100's year-old Aspen gove it has shade and privacy year-round. The surroundings have beautiful fields and grass, a swing set, and outdoor play areas, and outdoor seating to relax or nibble. Hops vines cling the side of the house and surround the porch wing, its all lovely rustic.

The downstairs has a generous warm sunroom with a wood-burning firebox perfect for morning reading or yoga, and evening conversations. The kitchen is fully appointed with a full gas range for you cooks out there, dishwasher, coffee maker and fully stocked in knives, tools, and service were for you and your family. The dining room seats 8 comfortably and the ample living room is centered around a firebox and the stories you weave. There is a hi-fi system and a large flat screen, but come on, you are here for the outdoors and you connecting with loved ones!

Upstairs there are three average-sized bedrooms with beautiful skylights and California closets. The morning sun is warm and you will wake up surrounding in historic pine. Each bedroom is equipped with queen beds, and not much more - just the way we like it to get out of bed, and to the pond, trials, hill, or to spend time with family. Our Mom hand created the beautiful banister and railing that connect the floors.

There is a laundry room with a washer/dryer, and a sneaky back bunk room with a lofted full bed as well.

The bunkhouse where Dad lives is a perfect staging ground for events, catering, or other entertaining. Centrally located with two large farm doors. There is an enclosed garage and a lot of covered space in the shed. Parking will not be a problem, even for many guests.

Out in the fields, we have acres of tall grass with long views. You could get lost in thought on these grounds all day. These lands are where we grew up, and I promise they never get old. Across the street and down the hill is our favorite gem, our private natural lake, and river access. It is always stoked with fish, and over the years we have improved the area adding hand-built bridges, a small table and chairs, and a fire pit. So much magic has taken place here, and we invite you to create the next chapter.
