Down-to-earth but elegant lodging
The Hearthstone House is amazing...and it's the staff that makes it so. From the time you walk in the door greeted by Harry, the lodge's dog, to chatting with Scott and the rest of the staff, you know you're in a special place. In a true bed & breakfast Frank Lloyd Wright style, you feel you are in more of a home than a hotel. I don't know when Scott sleeps; I would see him at night at the conceirge desk and then at 8am taking orders for eggs in the kitchen. The beds are comfy, the library is just so nice to hang out in with board games and books, the wine & cheese reception in the evenings is great, and the breakfasts are good. I only had a few minor complaints: some rooms might be a little cramped for some people--we had a deluxe king with room for a complimentary air mattress for my daughter, and that was plenty of space for three. Also, the noise level being on a lower floor was a little like being in an apartment with poor soundproofing--you could hear people in the hall and walking upstairs. Other things to note--I would go shopping at a grocery store outside of downtown Aspen upon arrival for a few snacks, sodas and water, as I didn't see a vending machine on premises (it would spoil the decor anyway)--going out to eat every night in Aspen can get very expensive.
