Glenwood Springs cabin description

This was one of the first school houses up the creek in New Castle, and the only one of 4 preserved. It is comfy and has a nice deck for a fantastic view up the Porter Ranch to the sunlight ski resort.

We welcome you and your pets to our first rental on the Ranch, and have listed another rental called the elk experience for rent on vrbo as well!!
We offer a fantastic kitchen for the chef in you, and provide a bowl of farm fresh eggs when in season! We are centrally located to a plethora of activities, or...just flop at the Cabin and get away from it all! X country ski on the ranch in the winter, or soak in the famous Glenwood Hot springs..climb in Rifle, hunt in Section 42, go to the play, ski Sunlight, Vail or Aspen, all are close! OR Horseback ride with us, galloping across the fields, or introduce your child to our miniature horses!! Grab some herbs and greens from the garden and enjoy them on the front porch with your family, and relax in the glider. Life is good. We welcome you with open arms to our world. It is unique and simple, and you will love it.

Keywords: Chef's kitchen, great views, on a private ranch just minutes from glenwood springs, elk bugle next to the window, horseback rides are available, peace on the front porch, sleeps six

                  Whitewater Rafting and Horseback Riding for the ultimate day in the Mountains, we call it the paddle and saddle program, call us to see the discounts if you do both !!!

                  ALSO, we enjoy snow shoeing in the winter, with plenty of hills to climb or sled down off of. We are the only place on the earth where you stay right next to our elk herd. Listen to the whistles and bugles in the fall, and watch our speckled babies in the spring. Our birds and wildlife are protected here on the Ranch, and we have many exotic species that stop over here for safety and solitude. Do it yourself, ...nothing to chirp or whistle artificially. ahhhhhhhhhhhhh. Unwind and enjoy our cabins. ..another one being built on top of our world. complete with yoga glassed in studio. so cool.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1898

                  About the owner: Terry was born to the ranch and this life. He and I run this Ranch as a couple, and make a good team..but without our Jax, Washa Walker, Castle Pines Penelope, and the Grande Dam, Foxy....and the rest of the critters, we would be pretty boring.

                  Why the Owner Chose Glenwood Springs:
                  our cabin is historical and special. A glimpse of real ranch life is fascinating to others, we have found. Please relax and unwind up here, we welcome you.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  We are so close to the hot springs, or our local's hot pots, as we call them, and really love the privacy and the solitude that we can offer to the world. we are minutes away from world class rock climbing as well, and have had climbers as far away as germany stay here for weeks. Please let us show you the elk pen cabin as well as this one, under construction ...more to come
