About Dean Roberts

We are Dean and Dana Roberts, two lifelong ranchers. Our ranch is working Angus cattle ranch. We love the western cowboy lifestyle and know that you will enjoy your stay at our out of the way cabin.

Dean Roberts purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Dean Roberts chose South Central

We built the cabin as a private getaway for our family and friends, just a short ways from our ranch home. Our visitors enjoyed it so much that we decided to invite more or our "friends" to join us at the Post Office Ranch Cabin. The Post Office ranch is built around one of the original post offices in the valley.

What makes this cabin unique

The Post Office Ranch is located just off Hwy 50 on well maintained gravel roads. The cabin is remote and quiet, yet convenient to Salida and Monarch Ski Resort. The South Arkansas River is just a short walk from your deck. We know that any angler will enjoy the private fishing on over a mile of cottonwood lined mountain stream. Just across the river is BLM land, ready to explore.

Guestbook comments from the owner


Mu husband and I spent a long relaxing weekend at the Post Office Ranch with my parents this spring. The cabin is well equipped and very peaceful. We really enjoyed watching the horses in the field through the giant picture window. Even though it was rainy and snowy for much of our stay, the cabin was so cozy we didn't care about the weather. When the sun did poke through, the views were amazing. We would certainly recommend the Post Office Ranch to anyone looking for a quiet place to relax with great access to the mountains and Salida.

Take care,

Beautiful cabins

  • 5 of 5

I rented both Post Office Ranch Log Cabins for a family reunion (16 people in all). 8 adults slept in this cabin, but I wouldn't try to fit any more in. Four 20-25 year old girls stayed in the loft; it worked great for them but the ladder could be challenging for less athletic people.

The cabin is 10 minutes outside of Salida, but is secluded from the highway so it feels very private. Dean quickly answered all of my questions by email and was very friendly in person. We all loved the craftsmanship of the cabins, the gorgeous views of the mountains, and the close proximity to so many activities. My brother and uncle enjoyed (catch and release) fishing in the pond. It was also nice to have a fully stocked linen cabinet, kitchen, and access to a washer and dryer.

We stayed in July; the temperature in the cabins was perfectly comfortable and it was even cool outside at night. There were a lot of biting flies and mosquitoes in the pastures, but DEET kept them off. I highly recommend both of these cabins!!

Close to town, yet maintains a desired level of solitude. Owner is attentive and a joy to meet in person.

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was exquisite. I definitely have to say the pictures did not do any justice to the real Craftsman of the actual cabin. Dean was absolutely exceptional he was super helpful for any and everything we needed or had questions about. The cabin was extremely extremely clean very well put together and smells nice too. They have some pretty horses and livestock. We did have a neighbor but not one time during our stay did we notice or hear anybody else it was super quiet very secluded made me feel like I was in a private resort style cabin. I love the privacy of this place I love the homey feeling but also the luxury feeling out in the woods. I would recommend this place 10 times over to anybody who is looking for it, don't keep looking just book it it's amazing it's wonderful you will not regret it.

We loved everything about the Post Office! The cabin was beautiful, comfortable and equipped with everything we needed. The deck was spectacular for viewing snow capped mountains all around, sunsets and animals(cattle, deer, fox and birds) We walked and fished. It was perfect for our family! Dean couldn't have been nicer! Hope to return soon!
