Terry Porter was born and raised here in New Castle and makes Porter Ranch his home and living. He raises Rocky Mountain Elk here, and is a custom Hay Rancher. Custom hay is his bread and butter, but the elk sure are fun!

Terry and Mary purchased this cabin in 2013

This cabin is for those special someone's who really want to get away from it all. You are completely secluded, with all the luxuries of home..you must be judicious with the power, and understand that there is a lot of responsibility with being in with the elk. BUT,,,,talk about a unique experience. You will love it.

Covered front porch, nice outside clawfoot tub for a sun shower, or a dog bath, private gazebo and complete solitude. Outside grill and fire pit, pull out couch and walk out grade Colorado red stone patio. Really nice and very very private.FREE WIFI NOW.

Once in a lifetime experience!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were looking for a Colorado cabin to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We found it just outside of Glenwood Springs! I'm not sure where to start. Mary, the owner, is wonderful. She provided everything we needed and made sure our vacation was perfect. This cabin is on a 3,600 acre working ranch. A portion of the ground is used for raising elk. It just so happens that this cabin is in the middle of the elk pasture. We had coffee with the elk each morning and listen to their calls each evening! While not "The Four Seasons," the cabin has everything needed to be comfortable. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for an adventure or for a romantic getaway. It feels like it is miles from everything, but it is only a 15 minute drive to rafting, hiking, biking, and entertainment in Glenwood Springs.

A Truly Amazing Experience!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family vacation for 2014 was geared towards our desire to give our children memories to last a life time. The Porter Ranch delivered those memories above and beyond our expectations. First off, the Porter family went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure our stay was perfect. Secondly, the Porter Ranch was even more beautiful than we could have ever imagined. The cabin was very comforting and had all the amenities we wanted for this family trip. It also lacked the amenities we wanted to remove our kids from (Computer and TV) for this vacation. Our day typically started with coffee and breakfast while watching anywhere from 10-20 Elk in our front yard. The days were spent off the ranch fishing, hiking, river rafting and enjoying the nearby towns. The evenings consisted of wine, appetizers and amazing sunsets. One evening we counted 47 Elk, including 9 calfs. Our boys (9 and 11) could not believe the amount of Elk we saw. A vacation with memories to last a life time was given to us by the Porter family. If you are looking to take the family to Colorado and want a break from the normal routine get off the grid and stay at the Porter Ranch!

Excellent Experience

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in the elk cabin 2 nights for a relaxing get a way. The owners were gracious and accomodating. The cabin was well equipped and quaint with stunning views of the Alkali Creek valley. This ranch provides a unique opportunity to stay on property filled with elk, horses, cows, rabbits, coyotes and birds. It was a perfect setting to get away from the daily grind and feel completely relaxed. We snowshoed and the snow was perfect depth and consistently. Cannot wait to return!!

We stayed here for a family birthday weekend and hoping to make the brother in law fall in love with Colorado. This was the perfect place! The cabin is absolutely perfect and the scenery is breath taking!! The elk bugling this time of year was an added bonus.
Mary is also a very gracious host and super friendly!! We will definitely be back for return trips and peaceful getaways!! And the brother in law said he wants to move out here now!!
