Property Description

Rusted Star Ranch is an intimate 55-acre high-country property surrounded by sun, sky, and big beautiful mountain views. We invite you to our high-country ranch for your exclusive eagle-eye view of the Rocky Mountains from an elevation of 8,600 feet.

  • Modern-style cabin with loft; Queen Beds (x2) plus twin pull-out sleeper, Flagstone Patio, Wood-fired BBQ, DCS professional gas stove and oven, KitchenAid refrigerator, Walk-in shower, adirondack chairs, hammock, and hummingbird haven

  • Stargazing, wildlife-viewing, birdwatching, hiking, and more...

  • Horses, llamas, mules, donkeys, goats, and dogs always welcome. The entire cool and cozy cabin is yours to enjoy with walk-out parking, and private access to hiking, mountain biking, horse back riding in Roosevelt National Forest adjacent to Rusted Star Ranch. Corral and fenced pastures available for your horses or pack animals; and this includes trailer parking, hay storage, and water.


We enjoy the modern/contemporary, rustic place we've hand-crafted over the years and the intimate high-country feel that always surrounds this special place. Located between the the towns of Lyons, Allenspark, and Estes Park, we're minutes away from Rocky Mountain National Park, dining, entertainment, and most any back-county adventure of your choosing.

Bohemian style and comfortable amenities include kitchen with a DCS professional gas stove, full-size stainless KitchenAid refrigerator, large double-bowl enameled farm sink with hickory countertop, etc. Queen bed in the loft with views; and a very comfortable queen pullout in the spacious living room. The sleeping loft is mid-century modern in style and in addition to the queen bed it also has a small lounge area with sofa, chairs, and coffee table to enjoy the great views.

Our ranch is 45 minutes from downtown Boulder (Pearl St. Mall). The drive up to the cabin (or on the drive down to Boulder from RSR) is through the beautiful, scenic St. Vrain River canyon. Between Rusted Star Ranch and Boulder, CO is the great little town of Lyons - well known for their bluegrass music and outdoor festivals, intimate restaurants, locally-owned grocery store, coffee shops and bakeries, shopping, antiques, etc.

Getting around:

You will need to have your own vehicle to access the property as there is no public transportation available at our scenic and private location.

Other things to note:

There is no cell phone service at the cabin; however there is a land line and wireless internet.

House Rules:

We expect our guests to treat our cabin and property as you would treat your own; and enjoy it as much as we do.
