We LOVED the area and the isolation of the village. It is fully self contained and one does not have to leave the village unless wanting to. Food is great, beautiful mountains. people are very friendly, bus transport is free to anywhere in Aspen from the village and even farther out. It was a wonderful place to stay...we ate all our meals there and enjoyed the quiet. VERY NICE!!! THe drive back from the main road to the village reminded me of the drive to St Mary's in Canada ...beautiful!
