What sets Basalt apart?
Basalt has so much small-town charm. Sitting right on the banks of the Roaring Fork River, this charming mountain community is the place to seek out your next outdoor adventure.
The Basalt Difference
There’s an exciting mix of the old and the new in Basalt. At one point you might be overlooking the old downtown from the mountain, and the next, strolling through lively new developments (like Willits – in the small hamlet of Emma). This is a highly livable community, and real estate in Basalt is constantly growing to encompass the needs of more folks headed to the Valley.
Basalt is the kind of place where you’ll find farmers’ markets all year round, with summer markets right downtown and indoor winter markets in the Eagle Crest Nursery. There are unique boutiques and restaurants in the Old Town, and hiking trails in the White River National Forest.
Don’t forget about all the new fun activities cropping up. Head down to the Healthy Rivers Whitewater Park and catch a wave of the rushing Roaring Fork River. Basalt is one great adventure after another!
Basalt is a community that is made for all kinds of travellers – you can get around by car, on foot, or by hopping onto your bicycle. While it can sometimes feel like an unassuming place, Basalt is really on the cutting edge of community growth.
One of the most exciting aspects of living in Basalt is its period charm. Did you know that the Sears department store chain used to sell mail-order homes? On its way to Aspen, one of these homes was mistakenly dropped off in Basalt – and you can still see it today. It’s this, and other quirky attractions, that gives real estate in Basalt a distinct and unforgettable charm.
Basalt is found at the convergence of two spectacular rivers – the Frying Pan and the Roaring Fork. When you live in Basalt, you’ve got to be ready for outdoor fun. The rivers are the center of most of this action, with gold medal trout fishing available all year long.
