  • My husband worked at Windstar and John in the 80s, was so pleased about this Sanctuary, very moving and peaceful. 
  • John Denver Sanctuary is a scenic place, located in the center of Aspen next to the Roaring Fork River. Inside the sanctuary you will find a beautiful garden. There is also the theatre Aspen. There is no on-site parking but you can use a public parking in front of you.
