Avalanche Ranch is best described as a Rocky Mountain Picture Post Card in the Heart of Colorado. This pastoral setting offers the beauty and peace of an earlier era. Situated at 7000 feet, overlooking the Crystal River, with Mt. Sopris towering above at 12,953?, the views are more dramatic than you can imagine.

The 36 acre Ranch offers plenty of privacy for our 13 cozy log cabins, 1 bedroom Loft Apartment and 3BR Ranch House, the entire property can accommodate up to about 60 people.

There are nearby trails for hiking and biking as well as a half mile of private riverfront along the Crystal River to walk and fish. Across the river, the valley opens up providing spectacular views. Avalanche Creek flows into the Crystal River, surrounded by forest service and wilderness land.

The ranch grounds are very lush and include a variety of trees, apple and plum orchards. We have cleared a hiking trail that skirts the upper boundaries of the ranch. Tucked away higher up our property has a stocked trout pond and offers premier views. Picnic at the water’s edge and check out a canoe to float in the moonlight. Have your first boating experience with the kids, show them how to fish, or let them explore the pond in our one-kid paddleboats.

The tree house, sandbox, swing, tether ball, sledding hill, ice rink and other games will engage the children. While, horseshoes, volleyball, and better yet, our three hot springs pools will beckon adults to relax.
