Melanie Griffith Selling Empty Nest In Aspen

11/3/2015 1:32 PM PST

Melanie Griffith is learning that a home in the middle of nowhere might be hard to sell ... even if it’s posh Aspen, you know, where the beer flows like wine.

Griffith just lowered the price of her incredible Aspen retreat by a mil, after originally listing it for $9.9 million back in June.

We're told Melanie is ready to let go of the place now that all her kids are older and the massive home is not worth the hassle. She plans on staying at hotels when she visits.

She should find a buyer … the 7 bedroom pad has breathtaking 360 views of the Maroon Bells ... with a major bonus -- its own private ski run! It's also not too far from the lifts at Aspen Highlands and Ajax.

Griffith’s been suffering major empty nest syndrome since her split with ex Antonio Banderas … first getting rid of the LA home they shared and now the Aspen mega-cabin.
