Rocky Mountain High in AspenWords by Carolyn Steere
We have a confession to make…...we’re in love with Aspen, Colorado. On our recent trip to the beloved mountain town, we enjoyed the stunning fall colors of the aspen trees but truthfully, Aspen is amazing whatever time of year you choose to visit. Enjoy world-class skiing and snowboarding in the winter and hiking, mountain biking, fly fishing, white water rafting and rock climbing in the warmer temperatures. Aspen is known for its vibrant local cultural scene and a cocktail of exciting eateries whatever the season. Visiting the John Denver Sanctuary is another “must” when in Aspen. Strolling through the forest and along the Twin Forks River gave us a glimpse of what he meant by a Rocky Mountain “high.”
We found a picture-perfect location for a small, intimate wedding: The Gant. Typically, one does not think of a condominium resort as a setting for a destination wedding, but this property has everything you would need for today’s small event that allows for social distancing. The Gant's cozy rooftop lounge area, with exquisite views, is an amazing setting for both a ceremony and a small reception and the luxury condos can accommodate your family and guests and all within a few steps of town.
The Gant is situated on five beautifully landscaped acres surrounded by the White River National Forest. Located only three blocks from the Silver Queen Gondola – it is super convenient for skiers and snowboarders. An onsite tennis court, two outdoor heated pools, three hot tubs and golf add to your guest’s entertainment during their free time in Aspen.
The condominiums vary in size from one to four bedrooms and each has a full kitchen, spacious living area, woodburning fireplaces and balconies or patios. Pepperjack’s Café provides onsite food and beverage and the village of Aspen has over 300 shops, restaurants and clubs.
The Gant offers all the comforts of home with the amenities of a luxury hotel including concierge service, valet, airport transportation, shuttle service and a fitness center.
