The Ranch at Roaring Fork is an angler’s paradise located right on Highway 82 approximately 5 miles from downtown Carbondale; 12 miles from Glenwood Springs and 30 miles to Aspen. The Ranch features 360+ 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. 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!
Your rental comes with two fishing badges. Please note that all waters at the Ranch (including the Roaring Fork River) are restricted to fishing with fly rod and fly reel, using artificial flies with a single barbless hook. While spin casting may be done off property, no spin casting or bait-casting rods are allowed on the Ranch. Artificial flies cannot be used on spin casting or bait-casting rods.
Miles and miles of trails and streams will provide you with hours of enjoyment of walking, running, hiking, 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! Each morning as you sip your coffee, decide how you will spend your day as you look out over the ranch and enjoy the horses in the pasture across the street.
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 in 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.
Feel like going for a bike ride? You can stay right on the Ranch and explore the trail system, or 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.
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? The Ranch is conveniently located on the local bus route if you feel like taking the bus to the ski areas.
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!
