River House Cabin 1 Cozy and Inviting Nature Retreat in Colorado, USA: The River Ranch

Tumbling waters define The River Ranch in Colorado, USA. The legendary Elk River cuts a ribbon through the ranch, providing 2.5 miles of riverbank access. A lively, sight-fishing stream, two small ponds and a deep, spring-fed lake also offer endless fishing adventures. Built of the highest quality materials with meticulous attention to detail, The River House is both grand with its towering beamed ceilings and massive rock fireplaces and inviting with its warm wood finishes and relaxed, open floor plan. The exterior is covered with 2.5-inch-thick Douglas Fir planking, secured in place from the inside so that no fasteners are visible, then chinked and gently corn-blasted to reveal the warm hues, straight grains and soft textures of this remarkably strong and durable wood. A gabled wood shake shingle roof and stone accents complete the sophisticated mountain style.

Three large barns, including the equestrian center, and two smaller barns facilitate the smooth operation of the ranch. This first-class equestrian center is ideal for the professional or amateur horse enthusiast. The ranch has three fully appointed houses suitable for staff housing, guests or income-producing rentals. Three tidy cabins are situated with privacy and relaxation in mind. These houses and cabins can comfortably accommodate up to 17 people, including families, couples and mixed groups. [Photos and information provided by Adam York]
