A breathtaking rustic lakeside retreat nestled in Roaring Fork Valley

Rustic Lakeside Retreat-House

This rustic lakeside retreat was designed as home for family living and entertaining by Poss Architecture and Planning  located in Aspen, Colorado. Built for a large family this vacation residence is tucked in the beautiful Roaring Fork Valley in western Colorado. The home features a very spacious property with a beautiful lake, perfect for spending time outdoors swimming and fishing. The home also offers plenty of space for overnight guests and lots of outdoor activities to keep guests and family alike entertained. Spread out over two levels, the stone clad exterior creates a rustic feel to the home, that is very welcoming and inviting.

What We Love: A beautifully devised master plan design creates a family compound while providing mesmerizing lakeside views and plenty of areas to admire sunset/sunrise. Using local architectural traditions in the design, this unique home is carefully integrated into the forested surroundings… Readers, what do you think of this rustic lakeside retreat? Are there any details that you think should have been designed differently?

It also helps to fill the space with natural light and bring nature into the space. A soft, neutral color palette makes the space very calm and relaxing, a perfect oasis for a restful nights sleep.

Since the property is heavily wooded and very private, it creates the feeling of being in total seclusion. The home offers a very charming classic mountain-rustic ambiance mixed with crisp, clean interiors, perfect for modern family living.
