Looking for an Airbnb in Aspen? Aspen is a Colorado, Rocky Mountain playground of the rich and well-to-do, skiing holidays that look like TV commercials, and slow-motion descents down some of the USA’s finest slopes. Add to that a downtown that competes with the county’s finest in terms of restaurants, bars, and boutique shopping. This ski resort is home to some incredible options, which I’ve laid out in this dreamy Airbnb Aspen travel guide.

Aspen had humble beginnings as a mining town. Over the years, it became a popular hangout for celebrities and developed as a year-round destination for holidaymakers. Fair warning – Aspen can be expensive. In fact, it’s thought to be the most expensive mountain town in the US.

That’s why Airbnbs are a fabulous option for accommodation. They tend to be cheaper than hotels and offer extra privacy and amenities for travelers. Aspen, Colorado cabin rentals, in particular, are popular as rental options, probably because fewer options are more romantic for couples. 

So it is possible to find something that caters to your budget and needs when it comes to an Aspen holiday. And with that in mind, an Airbnb getaway to Aspen is definitely a must-do if you’re looking for the ultimate skiing adventure.

Here are 19 of the best Aspen Airbnbs available for rent.

The Best Neighborhoods To Stay Aspen

Aspen is relatively small, so in a sense, there aren’t particularly distinctive “neighborhoods” to speak of. But Aspen is in close proximity to a few other small communities that do pop up on this list. Here’s a quick guide to those.  

  • Aspen: While Aspen is small, you may sometimes hear locals talking about The West End (probably the main residential area), The East End, Cemetery Lane, Centennial, and Red Mountain. Most of these span only a few blocks each, and have some unique aspect to them. But they are all fairly close to Aspen’s general center.
  • Basalt: A mere 17 miles by road from Aspen, basalt was actually once called Aspen Junction. It’s most notable geographical attraction is the joining of the Frying Pan and Roaring Fork Rivers.
  • Carbondale: If there’s a challenger to Aspen at all, it’s Carbondale, which is becoming a very popular summer hotspot for holidaymakers. Carbondale is about 30 miles northwest of Aspen, and perhaps a better getaway to nature in some respects.
  • Meredith: A little further on from Basalt lies Meredith. Initially a mining town and lumbar area, Meredith is now considered a resort town – a satellite to the Aspen and Basalt communities.

Top 19 Airbnb Aspen, Colorado Rentals

Let’s take a look at some amazing Aspen, Colorado Airbnbs. We’ve had a look mostly at apartments and cabins for every pocket. But there’s also a super-deluxe option if you feel like splashing out. 


1) Vibrant Apartment in Downtown Aspen

Location: Aspen

Superhost: Yes

Airbnb Plus: Yes

Price: $464 USD+ per night

https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/plus/29906056

If you’re looking for something simple, easy, but in the heart of downtown Aspen, start here. It’s within walking distance of most bars and restaurants, and it has all the necessary amenities for a midtown stay.

What sets it slightly apart is the homely interior, including a stone-finish fireplace, granite kitchen surfaces, and cozy sofas in the living area. It feels like home, and can very well be for your stay in Aspen central.

Guest Review: “Robin’s place was in a super location and the apartment was perfect for our family of 4. Cozy and comfortable which made coming back from a day skiing an enjoyable place to have some downtime.”

2) Enjoy Winter and Summer in This Peaceful Mountain Home

Location: Aspen

Superhost: Yes

Airbnb Plus: Yes

Price: $945 USD+ per night

https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/plus/14988212

This gorgeous 4-bedroom beauty is ideal for a slightly larger group or extended family vacation. The giant windows in the living area provide buckets of light and awesome views of the surrounding trees, especially on snowy days.

There’s a comfortable space for you somewhere within its three storeys, whether it’s collapsing into the deep sofas, the king and queen beds, the hot tub, or just around the rustic dinner table for 8.

Guest Review: “The best of what Airbnb can offer…a beautiful, cozy home and perfectly professional host. Michele treated us like family, and her home is full of generous touches that communicate warmth and welcome.”

 


3) Modern Art Inspired Townhouse with Patio

Location: West End

Superhost: No

Airbnb Plus: Yes

Price: $1295 USD+ per night

https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/plus/20603534

The modern fittings and double volume space make a compelling argument for this beautiful midtown townhouse. Or perhaps it’s the combo of grey granite, dark and light wooden doors and ceilings, plus the stylish furnishings that make it so appealing.

But it could also be the location right on West Main Street. You could hardly be closer to the Aspen social life. Walk in the other direction and you’re in the trees and on the slopes. Perfect.

Guest Review: “The house is gorgeously decorated and has comfy beds. Location was great also. Only about a 5-10 min walk to town and the bus stop just a block or two away.”

Price: $30 000 USD+ per night

https://www.airbnb.com/luxury/listing/30061744

Ski-in and Ski-out. That’s what it’s all about. And if 16 of you are willing to live the best life, this is how it looks. Vaulted ceilings, wine cellar, heated floors, gym, hot tub … it’s all here and exclusively for your use. You won’t have to drive anywhere if you want to ski, either. Just ski straight from your doorstep.

Hailed as an architectural masterpiece, the danger with this super-luxury Airbnb is that you won’t want to go anywhere. They may just find you sitting at the mini grand piano staring out the huge windows, content, and at peace.

Here’s an option if you’re in the mood for a little luxury, with an extra fee for service. If you arrange in advance, the concierge will deliver an order of groceries when you arrive. Not that you’ll need it, as this condo is in what you might call Downtown Aspen, right by the famous Silver Queen Gondola which takes you up Aspen Mountain.

On the other hand, everything in the condo feels luxurious and new. The beautifully fitted kitchen is inviting, and the modern light fixtures feel like they’re from a plush hotel. Gorgeous.

Superhost: Yes

Airbnb Plus: Yes

Price: $707 USD+ per night

https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/plus/28217326

There’s an air of exclusivity around this fully-renovated house. But the views from its full-length windows are well worth considering. Heated floors throughout, an indoor fireplace, a fully-fitted kitchen, and luxury fittings make a great case for staying indoors here.

There are huge smart TVs, en-suite bathrooms in all the bedrooms, and the amazing views from the deck. Just additional arguments for why this is one of the in-demand Airbnb houses for rent in Aspen.

Guest Review: “We enjoyed the stay in David’s amazing place. It’s very beautiful, and pictures don’t do justice. We enjoyed the view very much every morning. It had everything we needed!”

10) Rocky Mountain Treehouse

Location: Carbondale

Superhost: Yes

Airbnb Plus: No

Price: $281 USD+ per night

https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/5839043

A little way outside Aspen, Carbondale offers something different for a true nature lover – a treehouse right above Cattle Creek, surrounded by woods. You’ll go rustic with a wood-burning stove, but balance that out with a soak in the hot tub after dinner.

On sunny days, the deck is a fabulous vantage point from which to see the surroundings. In Winter, what could be more romantic than enjoying a snow-covered canopy from inside? Preferably with a hot cup of cocoa in hand.

Guest Review: “The treehouse is well worth the money ! It’s quirky, cute and surprisingly comfortable! To sit out on the deck and listen to the creek and hummingbirds was a real treat and you can just feel the stress of your everyday life just slip away. We received an incredible surprise and got the honor of watching a bear eat apples and drink from the stream. What a treat! “
