    5/5 Excellent

    It was a snowmobil adventure I shall never forget. I will be back

    Relaxing Memorial Day Stay

    We arrived later than planned due to bad weather and a change of route. We didn't get to explore the are on that evening, but enjoyed hanging out in the cabin looking out at the horses. The cabin was very clean and had all the kitchen utilities you would need to cook a meal. The day after we woke up to a lovely sunny day and walked around the property with our dogs, checked out the river and then checked-out to go hiking which was really close. We had a great stay and would love to come back for a longer stay!

    5/5 Excellent

    Great stay!

    My boyfriend, dog and I loved staying here. It is only 25 min. outside of Steamboat but well worth the drive if you just want to get away. Also, you should call them directly to make the reservation since it is a small business and will match expeida's price. Overall, a great inexpensive place to stay with great owners.

    Pros: The staff and the fact that it is pet friendly.

    Cons: Nothing

    Location: Hiking, snowshoeing, fishing, relaxing, animal watching, biking, walking, running, jeeping

    5/5 Excellent

    Quiet Guest Ranch with great activities

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cabin was warm and cozy surrounded by about four feet of snow. A snowshoe hike in the afternoon was a great appetite builder. Lots of opportunities for cross country skiing, fishing, and Horseback riding (in summer). The owners have great plans and are working to build a wonderful experience for their guests.

    Pros: The friendly atmosphere

    Location: All kinds of outdoor activities. Climb Hahn's Peak, fish the Elk River (flows through the property), visit Steamboat Lake. Snowmobiling is nearby.
