Red Rock Ranch provides you and your group the perfect, private venue for a celebration weekend, reunion, workshop or business meeting.


The Ranch House: Imagine stepping back into the days of the old west and into the home of a wealthy, railroad baron. This is the feeling you'll get when you walk into the main Ranch House. Completed in 2003, architectural antique doors, spindle rails, cabinets, etc. were used to create the feeling of a 100-year-old home.

The Saloon and Great Room feature dark wood, large fireplace and book lined shelves. Under the stairs, a full 12-barstool saloon bar with oval mirror and fluted columns. Twelve-foot ceilings, ceiling fans and outrageous views top off this amazing main room. Overstuffed leather chairs on either side of the open-hearth fire and chenille down-filled sofas insure total comfort.

The Ranch House has a parlor, dining room, kitchen, billiards room, sauna/spa/workout room and veranda. The upstairs has 8 private bedrooms, four of which have private bath and shower. The downstairs of the Ranch House features an old fashioned Bunk House and several 'convertible rooms.'

The Guest House: Nestled along Carolina Gulch, this prairie Victorian features a large wrap-around porch with bent willow furniture, an outdoor screened bedroom, and a brick outdoor fireplace. Sit on the porch and visit with your friends and family while the kid's play croquet on the guesthouse lawn.

Remodeled 7 years ago, this house was first started in the late 1920's, and completed in the 1940's. After being used for about 13 years, the house was abandoned and sat empty for close to 50 years.

The Guest House has a sitting room, dining room, kitchen, three bathrooms and 2 lofts. It has a total of 8 beds.

The Homestead Cabin: It doesn't get more real than this. First built when the ranch was homesteaded in the late 1880's, this log cabin was one of the first homes built in the valley. Although it has been added onto over the years, the original 1-room log cabin is still intact and functions as the den, dining area and bar of this incredible cabin.

This rustic cabin features a main room, also of hand-hewn log, built around the turn of the century, a stone fireplace with quartzite found on the land, and a 100-year-old Majestic wood burning kitchen stove (retrofitted with new Gaggeneau stove top burners and adjacent convection oven).

The Homestead Cabin has a deck/patio, main room, kitchen, den, the McKenzie Room - a sitting room with large stone fireplace flanked by two chairs and a sofa - and one full bathroom. It has a total of 6 beds.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1989

                      About the owner: I am a general contractor, and I built this property specifically to provide a 'dude ranch' setting at an affordable price for group gatherings of up to 45 people.

                      Why the Owner Chose Westcliffe:
                      This is an historic homestead property dating back to the 1870's and it is a unique 'old west' experience, complete with saloon bar, and all the trappings of the wild west!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
                      A private property for a large group, at an affordable price. Sleeping 40 to 45 people in a private residential rental, is very rare, particularly in this price category.
