When you peruse Airbnbs listings in Aspen, you witness a showdown of virtual bragging rights — multi-million dollar houses, condos, and slopeside residences listing their purchase price as the top amenity; all things actually applicable to the guest seem a mere afterthought. This might not come as a surprise in a town synonymous with big numbers and celebrity sightings. Fortunately, we’ve taken the work out of dissecting these boisterous listings and compiled this handy list of the best Airbnbs in Aspen for each type of traveler. Before you book, keep in mind that Aspen lodging is best enjoyed in groups, slashing the prices but not the access to high-end amenities. Gather your partner or crew, and get ready for a high-altitude trip with the stars.

Quick tips on booking lodging in Aspen

Keep in mind that despite its immense reputation, Aspen is a small town. This means pretty much anyplace you book in downtown, at Highlands, or in neighboring Snowmass Village, is within walking distance to dining, shopping, and nightlife. And moving between the three cores is easy via the free bus system, Uber, and taxis. Thus, rather than focusing on the perfect location, the more important factor is identifying what you want to do and what amenities will make it the best experience possible. Free parking is a significant perk, so keep an eye out for that.

Stays in resorts and hotels, many of which are listed here, often include perks like pool and hot tub access, a gym, and even on-site dining and nightlife. Many, however, require a seven-night minimum. We’ve filtered out those who require a more extended stay, so you can book shorter trips while still enjoying the niceties. We’ve pulled up some of the best private homes and condos outside of resorts, which are much more relaxed and offer a more authentic mountain town experience.

This creative condo is an excellent opportunity to experience Aspen Highlands luxury and split the rate between up to eight people. Located in a private resort at Aspen Highlands, you’ll arrive to the high-end trimmings that Aspen promises and be within walking distance of the Highlands chairlifts (for the ski-minded, this means you could be atop the legendary Highlands Bowl — including the hike — by 10:00 AM). This unit features four bathrooms, access to all the base area amenities, including shops, coffee and liquor, casual and fine dining, and free parking (a major perk in Aspen). Aspen Highlands is right there, and when you do want to skip over to downtown or Snowmass, you can hop on the free bus.
