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!! 492452
We offer a fantastic kitchen for the chef in you, and you are welcome to greens n veggies from our gardens and apples and pears from our orchards! Mary is a master canner, so chat her up if you are up for canning!! 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 or the newer Iron Mountain pools,..rock climb in Rifle, hunt in Section 42, go to the play, ski Sunlight, Vail or Aspen, all are close! Grab some board games, 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.

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.

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 newest Lakeland Terrier, miss Eskwyre's Lancashire Rose, our 2 cattle dogs: Rudiger and Giesela, who are pepper and salt Natural Giant schnauzer imports, and the Grande Dam, Foxy....and the rest of the critters, we would be pretty boring. Our goats keep us busy, as well as our elk and gee, our custom hay business and these cabins, and horses and cattle, and life. Whew. Glad when winter comes.
Why the Owner Chose New Castle, CO, USA:
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, and NOW we are going underground! whooo hooo...never a dull moment here!
