Property description

The End of the Road Ranch is located 8 miles north of New Castle and the Colorado River, in a spectacular setting at the mouth of East Elk Creek Canyon. It offers a panorama of views, and the mesmerizing sound of the clear, cold creek flowing out of the White River National Forest and the Flattops Wilderness area. The combination of Colorado's four seasons, southern exposures, an intimate sense of scale, makes this a unique piece of paradise, and a place for people who love to be outdoors, whatever the season.

The End of the Road Ranch provides countless opportunities for outdoor recreation, both within the property limits and on nearby public land. Biking, Cross-Country Skiing, Downhill Skiing, Fishing, Golf, Hiking, Rafting on the Colorado River, Snowboarding, Snowshoeing, and the list goes on.

The ranch comfortably accommodates 6 people in the winter and many more in other seasons, in thoughtfully appointed quarters.

The Main house has a king bed and bathroom with a rain shower, an eclectic kitchen including an early 1900’s gas Pioneer stove, two under counter refrigerators, and a mix of utensils, dinnerware, pots and pans. The house is filled with light, including two separate living rooms (one with a twin bed) decorated in colorful Buddhist flags, beautiful cloth from far away places, exceptional photographs, and a fabulous collection of books.

The Water house and the Bunk house are short walks from the Main house. These houses have comfortable double beds. Rooms are warmed with radiant floor heat. Natural light is abundant.

The Water House has a rain shower and a clawfoot bathtub; it serves as a green house for plants and has a washer and dryer.

The Bunk house, located adjacent to the horse barn, has its own bathroom with tub, and a kitchen with an electric stove and oven.

The ranch is the last property in East Elk Creek Canyon before you enter the White River National Forest where hiking is excellent. Mountains surround the ranch. The pristine East Elk Creek runs through the Ranch's 36 Acres and the owner has built a sauna cabin along the creek - a great place to relax after a day of adventure.

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose New Castle:
A quote from a guest: 'End of the Road Ranch has been created out of the owner’s vision and many years of hard work. Everything on the property has been constructed or rebuilt by hand. It’s a place of happy memories. It’s a place to live in natural beauty and quiet isolation. If you come here with a sense of adventure and an open mind you will have a rewarding experience. You will leave as we did with memories for a lifetime to enjoy. You will also feel a sense of gratitude that you are “among the lucky ones”, who got the chance to experience such a unique and wonderful place. Our hats are off to our host. We will be coming back!'
