About Dean Roberts

Father purchased ranch when I was 3 yrs. old. I grew up here and was able to raise my 3 children with my beautiful wife of 39 years. Family operated a dairy on ranch till 1981.

  • 4 of 5

The owners were very nice. The home was very clean, beds comfortable - The kitchen is equipped with everything we needed.

The property is on over 300 acres - so it was very quiet. - I loved seeing the horses in the pasture.

We stayed in the Elk Run cabin, very clean, beautiful views and host Dean was great! Only minutes away from groceries and supplies, excellent pizza joint. The drive 1 hr each direction on Hwy 50 was absolutely beautiful. Recommend Royal Gorge whitewater rafting and ziplining.

Wonderful property with stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the cabin for a week. The cabin is beautifully appointed, clean, spacious, and in the most stunning setting. Our host, Dean, was helpful, kind and made our stay very comfortable. The location of the ranch is perfect, far enough out of town to be 'in the middle of nowhere' but only a 10 minute drive to groceries and good restaurants. Just couple of minutes from a great brewery, Elevation.

We had a lovely time staying at the cabin, and would definitely stay there again!

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The Post Office Ranch has got to be the best cabin we have ever stayed in. Dean was always there if we needed something, or had questions. He even hooked us up with some extra fishing gear for the awesomely trout stocked pond. We have 5 boys from 5 to 15 years old, and all had an amazing time. Only complaint is we had to go home. We will definitely rent this cabin again.
