Property description

The lodge is peaceful and quiet. It is located 1.5 miles south of Interstate 70 so there is no residual highway or railway noise. It is a private peaceful getaway.

This lodge is set up for groups or families. It is a 2 cabin lodge. One cabin is set up as the bunk house with 2 3/4 bathrooms and a powder room. There are 4 bedrooms and a living room. The other building is the dining hall and kitchen. The lodge tap water supply is not considered potable water for drinking. Most of our guests drink bottled water or bring water containers which can be refilled at the ranch entrance.

The lodge is powered by a hydro-generator. It is off grid, green electricity with a battery bank. The quantity of available electricity is dependent on creek flows.

The lodge is set near Ike creek, a small year round running creek surrounded by aspen groves and tall spruce trees. Wildlife often frequent the creek and brushy hillsides on either side of the canyon walls.

There is access to hiking trail and many onsite activities right from the lodge. Bair Ranch offers onsite horseback riding, ATV adventures, chuckwagon dinners, trap shooting, hunting and wildlife and livestock viewing. We are the closest lodging to the magnificent Hanging Lake. The ranch entrance accesses the Glenwood Canyon Bike trail. If you can do it in the Colorado outdoors in the Summer, we have access to it; breathtaking, beautiful, private peaceful exciting and entertaining. Come experience the Glenwood Canyon and surrounding areas.
The Cabin is off of a well maintained dirt road that can be accessed by almost any vehicle. Colorado summers are typically warm and dry. Should we, however, experience a high volume of rain the road can become slippery and temporarily impassible. Generally within a few hours the road is safe for access.

Year Purchased: 1924

About the owner: We are the Bair Family. I am James C. Bair II. My great grand parents purchased the home I now live in in the early 1920s. We have been ranching in the area since the early 1900s.

We are located 12 miles east of Glenwood Springs just minutes from Aspen and Vail. We offer our guests a stay at 5,500 acres of private gated open space in the beautiful Glenwood Canyon.

Why the Owner Chose Glenwood Springs, CO, USA:
This is our family home and it has been for 5 generations. We have made our lives here. This land is both rugged and beautiful. It can be a harsh land at times and a lush land at other times. It sustains wildlife and livestock. It has been and is a great place to raise children. The Glenwood Springs area offers so many activities. It is a family oriented small town with big opportunities for recreation and entertainment. We are located 12 miles east of town so for us it is nice to leave town and come home.
