WHAT TO LOVE
Writers, nature lovers, and everybody seeking to get away from it all come to Woody Creek, a small village only eight miles northwest of Aspen. Time seems to stand still in this ranching community. There is hardly any noise or movement, save for the mountain breeze rustling through the grass, the gentle bubbling as Roaring Fork River and the eponymous Woody Creek flow, and other sounds of nature. And when you need a change of pace, some excitement coursing through your veins, endless outdoor recreation is right within reach, as are Aspen and Snowmass Village.
The equestrian lifestyle is front and center in Woody Creek, where ranchland goes on for miles and miles under the neverending open sky. In the periphery are the tall peaks of the Rockies and some of the choicest ski runs in the world once the snow starts to fall.
Life is so quiet here and slow-paced; residents trade their cars for mountain bikes and horses. And everybody gathers at Woody Creek Tavern, the village’s only nightlife destination that was once a favorite haunt of legendary journalist Hunter S. Thompson, who once lived in the area. There is no pressure to be anyone, just yourself. The spirit of the American West is well and alive here.
Real estate in Woody Creek is highly coveted, with opportunities rare and few. Homes range from contemporary luxury estates, some by the riverfront, to expansive ranch and horse properties. People love to live here, and hardly anyone wants to leave, resulting in low turnovers. But for those who are dreaming of creating their own mountain estate exactly according to their specifications, acreage is readily available.
