Property description

Welcome! Come and make yourself at home at River Rock Ranch. You will find the lounging chairs at riverside where you can enjoy your morning coffee in the brilliant sunshine or your favorite brew while stargazing. Come and be surrounded by six acres of secluded country living right on the Roaring Fork River. The main floor of the two-story home features cathedral ceilings, large open living room, dining area for six, a fully equipped Chef’s kitchen, laundry room and a full bath. Located upstairs are three spacious, comfortable guest suites: master king suite with pool table, two queen suites and two full baths. Come, take in the panoramic views of the river valley and majestic mountains while you keep an eye out for wildlife and experience complete relaxation.

The Ranch offers patios, fire pits, and expansive lawns to play football or games. A short walk, 200 yards, from the house takes you to our private stream and pond. You'll have 425’ of river access for fishing or kayaking. Enjoy outdoor patio dining and riverside picnics. WI-Fi, cellular service, and satellite TV are all available. Located 15 miles from I-70, five miles from Hwy 82. Nestled between Glenwood Springs and Aspen (35 minutes away); two miles east of historic downtown Carbondale.

Our wish is for you to relax, feel at home and enjoy the ranch as much as we do. We plan to meet your vacation expectations and surpass them with a super clean home filled with numerous amenities on a beautiful ranch set in the mountains. Manager will personally greet you when you arrive at River Rock Ranch, as they reside on-site in private studio. Your privacy is respected. You might see us outdoors as we attend to the property.
