WONDERFUL STAY

  • 5 of 5
Great place for R&R. House exceeded our expectations as we have rented a lot of homes to compare this one too. They provided us with more ammeties than any other home we rented in the past 15 yrs. Owners are nearby but descreet in presence. Grounds are beautifully maintained. Close to Carbondale, Basalt and Glenwood Springs for day trips or dining. ATV rentals nearby at Marble great fun to take up sheep mountain. Would give this more than 5 stars if I could.

BEAUTIFUL SPACE WITH ALL THE AMENITIES

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying here. The place is peaceful, spacious, and beautiful. Their rooms were impeccably clean, the kitchen was fully stocked, and there were places to unwind both indoors and out. We looked forward to coming back to the house every day after skiing, and as a result didn't dine out in town one time during our visit. Furthermore, Lorie was super helpful. We knew they were there if we needed anything, but (just like she said in the listing) they are available as much or as little as you like. Any time I had a question she got back to us straight away, and she made sure we knew all the ins and outs of the space when we got there. I highly recommend anyone coming to the area to stay here.

COUNTRY PERFECTION

  • 5 of 5
The RRR was a perfect long weekend get-away for my husband and our 2 dogs. Lori and Allen have a warm, inviting home; literally and figuratively! All rooms are spacious and offer plenty of privacy. Lori has a well appointed kitchen and I enjoyed cooking all weekend, even though Main St Carbondale is a short two miles away- drive or walk on the bike path, (the choice is yours).
The property grounds are meticulously manicured with easy access to amazing riverfront; fish, eat dinner, sit and watch the wildlife, again the choice is yours. Easy close accessabilty to rafting, fishing, hiking trails, hot springs, Basalt, Aspen.
Lori and Allen were 100% available by cell and gave us our privacy the entire weekend. They were unbelievably friendly and helpful. We would 100% recommend this rental to any of our friends and relatives. Thank you for opening your home Lori and Allen.

THE BEST VRBO EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 of 5
I was hosting a conference in Aspen and my ex was supposed to hung out with our kids (two teenage girls) and a dog. But he couldn't come, so we ended up staying there without him. I can't say enough good words about the house and the owners! My daughter is extremely picky about food (she is vegan and eats only organic fruits, whole grain, etc.). Lorie made her absolutely happy preparing healthy and delicious meals! My daughter even said she has wished to be adopted by these people! Alain made a cappuccino for me which was so tasty, I haven't had anything like this since my last trip to Europe.
Our dog, an old golden retriever, had problems with the stairs, so the hosts did everything they could to ensure his safety. I could leave my family for whole days without worries about them being hungry or bored.
The house is absolutely beautiful: lots of arts, fresh air and positive energy. I hope to come back during summer time!

Owner's Response: Normally, our home is a vacation rental home; however, from time to time, in-between rentals, we have the options to provide a bnb accommodation. We are thrilled that our guests, two charming teenage daughters and their mother, had a great experience. Being temporary hosts, is fun for us as well as our guests.

AMAZING PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
Lorie and Alain are tremendous hosts. This property is incredibly beautiful. The home is perfect for family gatherings. The kitchen is fully equipped and awesome for those who love to cook. The wood burning stove keeps the spacious living room warm and toasty on cold winter days/nights. If you are looking for a ranch type experience, on a river, in a beautiful location, with amazing amenities, then River Rock Ranch is the place for you!

PERFECT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Just passing along how wonderful our visit was to the River Rock Ranch. Stayed for 3 nights and just a great time. The place is charming and had everything one would need.
Clean, comfy, RIGHT along the river and so peaceful. The photos don't do it justice. We enjoyed looking at the horses out of the windows and the outside space was very nice-jacuzzi a real treat. Enjoyed reading by the river and the peacefulness. A true getaway from it all. The hosts are so very gracious and accomodating. They live on site-yet they give you your total privacy. Plenty to do or not do in the area as they are close to Glenwood Springs and Aspen. We plan on coming back again! Would recommend to anyone.
