About our Properties

High-quality rooms and service seem to have evaporated
like the steam from an outdated locomotive.
At the Red Barn Guest Ranch, Rio Grande Vacation Rentals, and the Ponderosa Lodge,
this is not the case...

While you don't have to be a millionaire to enjoy First-Class,
our hope is that you will leave feeling like one!

Whether you want to get "hitched" in the mountains, stay on a historic 21-acre horse ranch, take the whole family to visit Glenwood Springs in a vacation home with a kitchen, stay in a rustic cabin, or you want to bring your beloved pet, we have a variety of accommodations that will meet your needs!  We look forward to welcoming you to your "home away from home" in the beautiful Colorado Rocky Mountains.     

Enjoy the Rustic Charm of Colorado's Historic Red Barn Guest Ranch:
Established in 1903, this charming and historic 21-acre ranch has been lovingly restored with a rich warm ambiance and tasteful decor.  The entire ranch is surrounded with beautiful mountain views, acres of green pastures, Kentucky white fencing, luxurious suites, and a rustic barn wedding/special event venue for up to 300 guests!
Our passion for generous hospitality has been our hallmark for over 20 years, and now we are carrying on this established tradition in our family-run farm-style venue.

Rio Grande Vacation Rentals: Our vacation properties are located about 1 block from the B&B in downtown Glenwood Springs.  Each apartment is located in a Victorian house that has been converted into private rentals, and each space is unique and tastefully decorated.  Each place has cable TV, internet, and either a kitchen or kitchenette, stocked with supplies and amenities to help you enjoy your vacation in our town.

Ponderosa Lodge Cabins: The Ponderosa Cabins, est.1939, offer their own kitchenettes, clean and well-appointed cabins for guests to enjoy the best of Glenwood Springs, with downtown being less than a 5-minute drive. Near the Glenwood Adventure Park and Hot Springs, amongst 17 total cabins on a 2-acre property, this location will soon be a destination for Western-style weddings, and large family retreats (coming soon!). 
Our cabins have been remodeled with a fresh twist on an old cabin. Decor will vary slightly, but we call our style "Rustic Luxury". Featuring small kitchens/kitchenettes, bath, queen bed (or sofa bed- in the pet-friendly cabins), and a small dining area.
Each cabin also has Wi-Fi, cable TV, and A/C. All cabins are quaint and cozy! Guests will have their own entrance, parking space, and separate living area to themselves. Some cabins are "duplex style" and may have another cabin right next door.
Please NOTE: PETS ALLOWED CABINS 6, 7, 10, and 21 ONLY).
We had a wonderful long weekend at The Rio Grande B&B! The house is adorable and we loved our room. Breakfast was delicious and the location was perfect! The inn-keeper and owners were a delight and went above and beyond for us. We will be back for sure! -Ashley S.
My daughter and I stayed at the Rio Grande BNB in March of 2018 and could not have had a better experience. The hosts were so friendly, and the house was impeccably cozy and comfortable. From check in to check out, everything was perfection, smooth and professional. We will definitely recommend them in the future and hope to be back again soon! -Tenby D.
We absolutely loved staying here. I originally booked a room at the Glenwood Springs resort but quickly realized that it was way to busy. My husband found this place and I'm so glad he did. Our room (the downstairs room with a little patio) was absolutely perfect. It was clean, cozy and had lots of charm. The breakfast is lovely. If we come back to Glenwood, we'll stay here again. -Jessica W.
If they have an opening, book immediately! It is a must stay, from the level of professionalism and hospitality beginning to end. We have never been a bed and breakfast couple before until now, we became believers. We stayed for our anniversary back in July 2017 for two days. I originally booked because of how many people commented on the breakfast and boy, they did not disappoint. We have been counting down the days until we come back for another weekend getaway and we tell anyone and everyone to stay here. Thank you for everything. -Allison A.
A quaint well-decorated turn of the century home with clean modern amenities in every room. The highlight is obviously the breakfast, made to your liking and served by a wonderful family, children included (super polite and articulate children, BTW) Be sure chat it up with the family...ask questions, tell your story, etc. And if you play guitar, ask for one hidden in the is loved by all! And the discussions with the owner family and other guests will not dissapoint! -Steve S.
We had such a wonderful experience. The owners were so nice and treated us life family. The breakfast was absolutely delicious (must try the orange cream!) and the rooms very comfortable. They lent us cruiser bikes to ride up to the hot springs and we had a fabulous time. I will be back again and have been recommending it to all my friends. -Ashleigh P.
We had a great experience here! Its in downtown glenwood, so perfect to walk places. The room was so nice, they have conplimentary tea/coffee 24/7, dvds ti watch, a few board games to play. A lot of personalized touches upon arrival, like snickerdoodle cookies! The room was nice, clean and comfortable. Bathroom had heated floors and a great tiled shower. Breakfast was amazing! Th ere are only 2 rooms, so its very quiet, private and cozy... highly recommend! -Becky C.
This is the first time we have stayed at a bed and breakfast. What a wonderful experience. The room was wonderful, hosts were very friendly, food was excellent. When we come back to town we will likely stay in one of Luis and Christine's rentals. Great experience! -Eze Z.
The suite was nice and clean which came with a little, cozy alcove. The breakfast was the best among all the B&Bs I have been to. They served the best fruit scones in the world. The hosts were friendly and kind. I highly recommend this B&B to anyone and of course to all my friends. -Canny Q.
Absolutely incredible place to stay! Surprised my husband with a babymoon, and they went over the top for us to make sure it was a special trip. The family is so warm and inviting, their hospitality is genuine and rare. The breakfast is to DIE FOR, I wish we could go back just for that! The house is beautiful, warm, and cozy. I am so happy I found this place and cannot wait to be back! -Lauraa F.
