Majestic Morning and Evening Views
Great location for our fly fishing trip. Cabin had room for 4 adult men. Great deck overlooking a ton of wildlife. Will be back next time I need some #outsidetherapy
Quiet, clean and well supplied!! Shooting stars from the back deck were amazing!
This is a convenient location for a lot of different activities! We went to a music festival in Buena Vista. Easy drive to other mountain towns as well. Plenty of four wheeling going on in the area. I’m sure winter is amazing and Monarch skiing did not seem too far away. We under utilized the space with only 2 couples. If you’re considering this rental, stop thinking about it and just book it! The ONLY downside is finding the driveway in.
Great Kick off spot for activities on the Arkansas
This is my second time staying at Post Office Ranch. The cabins are clean and nicely equipped. This is a great kick off spot for fly fishing or rafting on the Arkansas. This property also has some nice fishing on property. The owners are great and go out of their way to make you feel welcome.
Wow! Can’t believe to explain how amazing this place is... not only are there so many options of things to do around the town but this cabin is AMAZING! We went out most days but we’re back by evening and enjoyed our nights as much as our days! We stayed Saturday to Saturday and loved every second of our stay. Dean keeps the house clean, organized, and comfortable. He is literally around the corner if you ever need him. The views are 😍�😍�😍� (heart eyes). We can’t wait to come back with more people!! My absolute best vacation!
Beautiful Home and Setting
Great views, super clean and great service from Dean. We will definitely be going back.
Fabulous views! Wonderful cabin!
Dean’s cabin is amazing. The environment is so quiet and peaceful and the views are unmatched. Very clean accommodations. We missed the turn into the ranch because we expected to see the cabins on the road. But they are set back behind some trees and everything is so peaceful. Salida was wonderful. Hope we get to come again!
