In honor of Renters Week 2015, we decided to take a closer look inside one of the most expensive rentals in America. The Epic Aspen Estate in, you guessed it, Aspen is a $25,000 per night monument to taste so excellent and insatiable it can only be rivaled by dynastic captains of industry (or whomever also designed their manors). Sit back down into that Marcel Breuer Wassily Chair, and let Curbed Ski give you the rundown in case you happen to run into $175,000 out of the blue for a week's stay.
The estate has room for you and 15 of the closest members of your entourage in its seven bedrooms, three of which are apartments unto themselves plus the master. The dining area, however, only has seating for 12 so you'll have to tell four guests they can't eat with you, which we're guessing isn't something that will bother the type of person who can afford to rent this place.
Maybe those four disowned guests can check out the heated saltwater lap pool, the wine cellar, the media room, the home theater, the gymnasium, the spa, the tennis court or just get blitzed in the rec room with its bar, two bowling allies and target range. Don't worry, your $50,000 security deposit should cover the damage. Under no circumstances, however, should you let them go straight from the target range to the five-car garage where your no-doubt impressive ride sits on its own vehicular lazy susan. Yes, this place is ski-in/ski-out to Little Nell, has its own ice skating rink in the winter and is so smartly styled that we're jealous of the furnishings alone. But our favorite parts are the random framed movie scenes sprinkled throughout the house. What's more inspirational for a workout than Forrest Gump?
