Your mountain home is one of the oldest properties in the area, with unique historic structures. A large barn, a large antique machine shop, two furnished antique cabins, a windmill and some old hidden homesteads in the nearby forest make this property a delight. The house where you'll stay was built in the 1950s and has cozy, modern amenities. The bunkhouse is great for children and useful as another large bedroom.

About Lydia Reynolds
Hi! I'm David Reynolds. I grew up and still live in Canon City, where I have a commercial construction business that my father begun in 1962 and my son is now taking over. We've always been mountain men, hunters, ATV and motorcycle riders, as well as mountain and rock climbers. We are excited to provide the Colorado mountain experience you seek.
Lydia Reynolds purchased this Farmhouse in 2000
Why Lydia Reynolds chose Park County
We traded property with the BLM for this historic ranch to protect and preserve this important piece of history. The land still turns up old pottery, arrowheads, and other artifacts which we display in the buildings as well as in the main house where you'll be sleeping.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
You can enter and explore most of the old historic buildings. Climbing up Mt Baldy, Hammond Peak or Black Mountain on an ATV, a horse or on your own two feet is a worthwhile adventure. Snowshoeing, cross country skiing or hiking any of the trails off the property is also rewarding. Hunters enjoy all the open BLM land and the ample wildlife.

We rent cabins in CO twice a year & are so glad we stayed at 31 Mile Ranch. This cabin was a more rustic experience for me but it turned out great. There is wifi at the cabin & it appears they have Dish for tv but we never turned it on. I feel that if you need to watch tv at this ranch it's because there is a rain/snowstorm. There are too many things to explore & places to hike. Make sure to check out the stars - I think it was my first time to see the Milky Way in person.
Our cell phones worked (Verizon). The fridge appears to be brand new & the extra dining table was removed. It did remind me of visiting Grandpa's cabin but that made it so special!
I'm grateful the owners have allowed us to visit their property. Make sure to read the green folder that has the history of the cabin. We spent so much time wandering the historic buildings & thinking about their history.
Thank you for staying at 31 Mile Ranch! I appreciate how well you took care of my home. We love to share what we have with courteous guests like you. Come again!
Great cabin and property!
Our group loved the cabin and property! Great hiking and scenery.
We love hosting guests like Andrew and his group, who treasure the beauty and experience of being in the mountains, not surrounded by a throng of unknown hikers and their dogs. We love dogs, though! Dogs are welcome, too!
Amazing mountain getaway.
The cabin was great and comfortably slept our group of eight. We enjoyed hiking to the peaks that are on the property, relaxing in the cabin, and just enjoying nature. Definitely planning to visit again.
We absolutely loved every minute we stayed at this awesome property!
We had an excellent time at 31 mile Ranch. We were greeted with a lovely basket with some wine, a nice note and beautiful flowers upon arrival. The owner, Lydia, was so nice and gracious and answered all emails very quickly . Let us borrow the awesome telescope and also gave us some good fishing spot tips. The land and property itself is amazing. We spent most of our time exploring the ranch. The barn and historic buildings were awesome! I'm an amateur photographer and got some amazing shots. The house has got really everything you need. Pots, pans, dishes, coffee maker, towels, blankets Etc. We forgot toothpaste and were lucky they had thought of that and had some. Had soap and paper towels and everything a functioning house needs. Not a foo foo kind of place, but we're not foo foo kind of people. Its a true farmhouse, but quaint and cozy. Felt like home after first day. We only left once to get allergy medicine. Otherwise, we would've never left. Was planning on exploring around area, but we didn't need to because it was all at the ranch. Saw so much wildlife, too. Several kinds of eagles, deer, coyote, many different birds.
My husband and I have used VRBO for the last seven or eight years or so and we go somewhere new every time. We've never thought about going back to one of the places we stayed, although we've really enjoyed being at all of them. We are always looking for something new but this place has something special. We will definite be back!!! Loved it!! Thank you Lydia!

Loved the property and the owner was super accommodating. I recommend this property.
Great family getaway with our dogs
If you really want to get away from the busyness of life, this is the perfect little spot. Not another soul in sight from the cabin. Plenty of hiking right outside the front door. The fenced yard was great to let our dogs out, but mostly they just enjoyed being "free range" all over the ranch and on the BLM lands. Everything in the cabin was quite comfortable and certainly adequate for our needs. Beds were a little uncomfortable, but you could bring an air mattress to put on top of them or something. There are ways to make that work. Plan to bring in all your food - we did and were glad of it. A trip to the store means a 45 minute drive each way to Canon City. The town of Guffey is charming and has a great bakery (wonderful breakfast) and at least two restaurants.
Royal Gorge Bridge & Park, Helicopter tours of the Royal Gorge, Royal Gorge Rock 'N Rail tourist train with optional fine dining, Royal Gorge Brewery, Abby Winery tastings & tours, ATV trail rentals, Shelf Road and Eleven Mile canyon rock climbing (1000+ bolted routes), gambling casinos, gold mine tours, free music in the park, hiking to Guffey Falls where you can cliff dive
