Located only minutes from downtown Aspen, Colorado, The Dunbar is one of the most rare estate rental homes on the market today. This ultimate luxury retreat has three exquisite residences, offering stunning and comfortable spaces for you and your family to experience the true Colorado lifestyle.

Enjoy complete seclusion on 160 acres of pristine wilderness, with your own private lakes and unparalleled views up Independence Pass, over the North Star Nature Preserve along to the east side of Aspen Mountain.

Aptly named for Kevin Costner’s character Lt. John Dunbar in his 1990 Oscar-winning film Dances With Wolves, the 160-acre property, which sits just 10 minutes from downtown Aspen, comes with three separate houses that can accommodate up to 34 people. Depending on the season, guests can enjoy dog sledding, tubing, a private ice rink, horseback riding, fishing, kayaking, paddleboarding, archery, a private baseball field—for Field of Dreams fans—and more.

Find it all: a perfect place to fish on the Roaring Fork River, a spot to share a game of baseball with your friends with views one couldn’t dream of, a venue perfect for uniting with family for a memorable wedding on the open field, or simply a getaway to disconnect and relax while taking in the majestic views of the Continental Divide.

Features of the property include 24/7 caretakers on site, a baseball field, a sledding hill, three hot tubs and the ability to sleep up to 27 people comfortably.

The majestic mountain property nestled deep in the Elk Mountain Range at the base of Independence Pass is 160 acres, complete with rivers and lakes – It’s like nothing you’ve ever seen before. The Dunbar is surrounded by majestic views; looking up Independence Pass and facing the East side of Aspen Mountain with the famous Walshes and Christies ski runs. Situated east to west at the opening of the valley, this retreat features all-day sun – something rare to find in the mountains. Become lost in the deeply pined forest, spend the afternoon fishing on the Roaring Fork River, or simply drift away on one of the private lakes. The opportunities are endless here at The Dunbar.

Plan your vacation on The Dunbar – where time stands still.
