We stayed 2 nights in the Sun Flower cabin with our children last week. I thought the cabin was very cute and the owners obviously put a lot of thought into making each cabin cozy and unique. We arrived after check in hours to find the heat on in our cabin and fresh baked cookies on the table. The landscape... More

So glad we discovered this gem just outside Redstone, one of our favorite areas in Colorado. We were lucky to get a Thursday night reservation just a couple of nights in advance, but when we asked to extend through the weekend they were all booked up. In talking with other guests we learned that weekends are often booked up 6... More

My wife and I visited Avalanche Ranch this past weekend to go to some hot springs in the Rockies. The weather was absolutely amazing (unseasonably warm) which was refreshing when getting out of the springs. There are 4 separate pools all fed from natural hot springs, so there is plenty of room and you don't feel over crowded. The view... More

Visited during an unexpected rain/snow during our late September visit; luckily we were able to get in (MAKE RESERVATIONS!). The springs are great - three separate pools that each have different temperatures - and in fact, the temperature dropped 15 degrees while we were there, so they dialed up the heat in one of them, and we felt it almost...

Seven women went on a 2-day retreat this fall. I think this is perfect for groups, adults and possibly children. I'm not sure that little kids would want to spend much time in the hot springs. The ranch was not as ritzy as Aspen spas but not as expensive either. The cabins reminded me of dude ranch/fishing cabins were brought... More

We had a very nice stay at the Avalanche Ranch. The hot springs are great, the cabins are perfect, the farm animals were a fun surprise. We toured the Redstone Castle, had meals in Carbondale, Redstone and Marble. It was the perfect get away for us. Be prepared to unplug because you won't have cell service, which is also a... More

We were visiting daughter in CB and decided to get away with her and her boyfriend. We booked a one night stay in the Birds Nest Cabin. Primitive yet cozy, we enjoyed cooking a meal in the kitchen (was raining or we could have cooked outside, although we had no charcoal and the rules say no cooking with wood). The... More

I've been three times this past year 2015/16. The first time was nice - a Sat. in the fall. The two times after that (Summer) there were kids. This place is small. What happens is the kids take over the largest bottom pool and the parents don't follow the rules and the kids are jumping in and loud. Maybe management... More

We love staying in the wagons (watch your head going in and out). We bring easy food that we can picnic with, and enjoy relaxing in the waters after a hike. The tub in the little log house provides a covered place to soak or privacy. The center pool is the hottest. Lots of options. We recently hiked to the... More

I went here for the first time for a family reunion, it was perfect for that. Many cute little cabins with enough comforts so you don't have to rough it. There are things to do at the ranch or nearby. Enough room to spend time apart or together. the hot springs are a great amenity when staying at the ranch... More
