Give me books, fruit, French wine, fine weather

and a little music played outdoors by someone I do not know." - Keats


Red Rooster Ranch is an elegantly-rustic guesthouse providing casual yet beautiful accommodations for the independent traveler.  Ideal for small groups, families and adventurous travelers, we are a low-key version of a bed-and-breakfast.

A fully-equipped country kitchen in the guest house allows guests to prepare meals for themselves.  Breakfasts are included in the prices during the summer months. Starting the last week of August throughout the fall, winter and spring, breakfasts are served only on Saturdays and Sundays (due to our family’s school schedules).

The separate (and totally private) guesthouse is located adjacent to our family’s main house in a French-country villa style setting. Our family–two boys (15 and 9), my husband and I–can fill you in on all of our favorite things to do in the area.

With four separate bedrooms, three private bathrooms, a kitchen, sitting room and balcony, the guesthouse is a great retreat or workshop setting for small groups or family celebrations. We also host artist and writer retreats at special discounted rates through the Arts Ranch of Colorado.

Way, way out in the country, above the tourist town of Glenwood Springs and the artsy town of Carbondale, the Red Rooster Ranch is a rare escape into the truly rural Colorado countryside.  We are far enough off the beaten path to be authentically “country,” yet with our paved county road we are easily accessible, with Glenwood and Carbondale both a fifteen minute drive away.  Aspen and Snowmass are within an hour’s drive, as is the Victorian village of Redstone and historic Marble.  Hiking and biking in Glenwood Canyon as well as on the Rio Grande trail (up to Aspen) are only starting points for outdoor activities.

Our property features a spring-fed pond (with zip-line and swimming in the summer, koi-viewing in the spring and fall), horse pastures and two beautiful quarter horses (not quite ready yet for guest riding), two dogs, geese and chickens.  Many outside sitting areas (including gazebos, benches, swings and a cabin) complement the outside living area.  A large terrace in the back of the main house is where breakfast is served on summer weekend mornings.
