The Crystal River Ranch House - Private Fishing Paradise

Lakefront vacation home in Carbondale with patio
Reclaim your passion for the mountains at our modestly sophisticated and newly renovated country home, situated at the base of Mount Sopris and its striking 13,000-foot vista, 7 minutes from the town of Carbondale, with one half mile along the Crystal River of private fishing access within the 30-acre operational ranch upon which it sits, and a private pond off the back of the property (filled by the river May-October). Our 3 bedroom, 3 bath home allows friends and families to return to nature and balance their busy lives with a peaceful respite at our western mountain farmstead with recent interior renovations and a newly-finished back deck. There is speedy wifi in the space (although it can intermittently be down due to rural mountain conditions) but we ask our guests to choose this escape to connect with nature (bring your binoculars for bird watching and leave your work emails for work!). ** This is a space that caters to families and is not for parties and large groups to mingle. Please be courteous of this request if you wish to book this space. **

Entering into the mountain ranch, the open concept living space invites everyone together in conversation at the italian-inspired dining table and bench seating adorned with geometric chandelier lighting. Natural light engulfs the newly-constructed kitchen as you prepare a light fare with your stainless steel appliances, gas range, bar stool seating for four, and adequate entertaining crockery. The relaxed leather furnishings and pedestal gas fireplace in the living space look out upon the private alpine pond and nearby massive mountain scapes. From the seating area, immerse yourself in the pine-scented fresh air as you open the door onto the back deck space and enjoy a stunning dark night's sky from the comfortable outdoor seating area.

The master suite emanates the feel of a cozy, one of a kind sleeping quarters for four. The plush master king bed with tasteful linens rests below the treehouse double twin bunks for your little mountain hikers. With its clean rustic finishings, new flooring, and rest & repose for four, the master suite celebrates family living in simple mountain splendor. In addition, the newly-renovated master bathroom encompasses a free standing soaking bath, jack and jill wash basins, a double vanity, and a crisp, mosaic-tiled rainwater shower.

The second bedroom leads out to the deck area and celebrates simplistic mountain style with its relaxing and rustic queen bed, splendid views and small ensuite bathroom with shower. Enjoy cool, organic tones on the restful queen bed in the third bedroom, accompanied by a western secretary desk space and closet readied for a multi-week stay. The hallway bathroom displays austere decor and a rialto-style polished tile tub.

Travel from the home, less than 15 minutes up the road to explore the historic tiny town of Redstone or minutes to the beautiful, family-friendly downtown of Carbondale. Although neighboring the town, you will feel the quiet seclusion of this tastefully-renovated mountain ranch that is an enviable point of departure for both summer and winter outdoor pursuits.

PLEASE NOTE:

- This home is somewhat close to the main road (HWY 133) and some road noise can be heard. It hasn't been an issue for most of our guests, but others that are sensitive to noise may not enjoy it.

- This space is located on a beautiful biodynamic 30-acre working ranch! While this space is extremely private and at least a few acres away from other structures, there are other barns and residences on the 30-acres.

- There is no television in this home as the homeowners want guests' to focus on unplugging and enjoying the beautiful nature around them!
Rooms open to patios. Bathrooms include shower/tub combinations.
The recreational activities listed below are available either on site or nearby; fees may apply.

5/5 Excellent

Comfortable, Clean Updated Ranch House, Great Scenery, Convenient Location
We have stayed in the Carbondale area each October for the past 5 years. This was our favorite house. We ranked it the best because it fit the size of our group (2 grandparents and a family of 4), was very clean and updated, and a great view of Mount Sopris. The house was also in a very convenient location just a few miles outside of Carbondale and the City Market grocery, and it was also very easy access to either Glenwood Springs, Basalt/Aspen or Redstone/Marble. This was great because two of us were fishermen. Even caught a fish in the Crystal River behind the Ranch House. And our 2 grand-daughters, ages 4 and 6 loved the large bunk room where there was plenty of room to play, build houses & forts and do gymnastics. There was a huge bin of legos that they also enjoyed.

5/5 Excellent

Barely left we enjoyed it so much
This property is completely equipped. The management company and owner are very Johnny on the spot, and they have some amenities that I actually use in my own home. We went walking in the river daily. The near by town is adorable and has good vegan pizza (not even an oxymoron). We fished a bit up the mountain, and it is also gorgeous there. Hopefully they will have us back next season, but you should book now because I'm for real considering booking all fly fishing season :).
