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