WHY AIRBNB ASPEN, COLORADO?

Home share companies like Airbnb have really shaken up the entire travel industry since the early 2000s. For many travelers (including yours truly!), it took some time to get used to the concept. Staying in someone else’s home, won’t that be weird? Could I be dealing with a conman and nothing in the ad is accurate? Is this host a crazy axe murderer? These were all completely normal questions to ask ourselves back then.

But today, the concept has been proven, and that is all a thing of the past. Airbnb has become a HUGE success! And when it comes to travel, the home share market has many pros over staying at traditional hotels. Including, but not limited to:
– More often than not you are getting a larger space (whole apartment vs. a single, cramped hotel room)
– Many times this is also for the same cost or even less, which is especially true if you need space for a larger group (one house vs. multiple hotel rooms)
– And you can also take advantage of additional money-saving amenities like included parking, a kitchen for cooking meals, etc.

So if you are making a trip to Aspen, Colorado, and would like to explore the home share market in Aspen, below are some of my favorites.
