Come visit to Fish/Bike/Golf/Ski in the heart of the Roaring Fork Valley!
Relax at an amazing high end home that features 2 private fishing badges at an angler’s paradise. Our home, located at The Ranch at Roaring Fork, is just off of Highway 82 approximately 5 miles from downtown Carbondale; 12 miles from Glenwood Springs and 30 miles to Aspen.
Our custom 3BD/3BA home features high-end finishes throughout. Two spacious Master Suites each feature private bathrooms with stone tile and European glass showers and large soaker tubs. A third bedroom with two twin beds is perfect for an extra couple or for the kids. Marble tile and Alder hardwood flooring is throughout the house. Enjoy entertaining and preparing meals in our well-equipped gourmet kitchen.
For the avid fly-fisherman the Ranch features 300+ acres of ***PRIVATE*** open space including two miles of river frontage on the waters of the Roaring Fork, 8 miles of Sopris Creek and other creeks and ponds on our property. Fishing on the Range is an extraordinary experience; the ponds are stocked with huge trout and the countless streams and fishing holes validate this angler’s paradise. In addition to the Ranch property, you are minutes from the Colorado, Frying Pan and Crystal Rivers--this is why Glenwood Springs is ranked the #1 fishing town in America. The Roaring Fork, known for its Gold Medal waters, holds beautiful trout, some up to 8 pounds, throughout its entire length. Additionally, nearby sections of the Frying Pan River below Ruedi Reservoir provide anglers with an opportunity to catch rainbow trout up to 10 pounds!
Feel like going for a bike ride? We have two bicycles for guest use on the Ranch property. Use the bikes to explore the trail system or discover your favorite fishing holes then return to the house when it’s time to relax. If you bring or rent bikes you can head out to the Rio Grande Trail which you can take from Aspen to Glenwood Springs. If you want something a bit more challenging, there are countless mountain bike trails up and down the valley.
In addition to the beautiful private open space, the Ranch features a 9-hole Par 3 golf course that is fun for all levels of golfers and open to the public. Walk over to the course any time you choose; it’s only a few hundred yards away! Check with the golf shop for current pricing but typically 9 holes is only $20. If you want to play a full round of golf there are several championship courses in the area as well.
Tennis anyone? The Ranch features two sport court tennis courts, and the house comes with two tennis rackets for guest use. There’s also a basketball hoop in the tennis court area for our guests to enjoy.
For skiers, this home is an excellent location. You are only 30 minutes away from world class skiing at Aspen, Snowmass, Buttermilk, and Highlands. Why pay Aspen hotel prices when you can rent a full house for a fraction of the price? Our home is also conveniently located within walking distance to the local bus route if you feel like taking the bus to the ski areas.
Miles and miles of trails and streams will provide you with hours of enjoyment of fishing, hiking, running, or biking. Take a long walk down the river trail and spot a Bald Eagle patrolling the river or Blue Heron working the stream bank. Keep an eye out for other wildlife such as deer, elk, coyote, bear, beaver, and much more!
At the end of a long day, return home to enjoy a crock pot meal or fire up the gas grill and relax on the back patio.
The Roaring Fork Valley and the Ranch are special places, offering a little piece of paradise and a classic Colorado experience. We are happy to offer our home to you and know that you will cherish this place as we have. Enjoy!
