Overview

About the property

When renting Red Rock Ranch, you take over the property completely for your private use during your rental. Create your own experience at the ranch. Take advantage of the many activities on site including a pool, spa, sauna, workout room, 60' television with satellite dish, billiards, volleyball, croquet and more!.

Or, enjoy the Wet Mountain Valley's many outdoor activities including horseback riding, hiking, fishing, white water rafting, sight seeing, antique shopping and more.

Red Rock Ranch provides you and your group the perfect, private venue for a celebration weekend, reunion, workshop or destination wedding.

The Ranch House: Imagine stepping back into the days of the old west and into the home of a wealthy, railroad baron. This is the feeling you'll get when you walk into the main Ranch House. Completed in 2003, architectural antique doors, spindle rails, cabinets, etc. were used to create the feeling of a 100-year-old home.

The Saloon and Great Room feature dark wood, large fireplace and book lined shelves. Under the stairs, a full 12-barstool saloon bar with oval mirror and fluted columns. Twelve-foot ceilings, ceiling fans and outrageous views top off this amazing main room. Overstuffed leather chairs on either side of the open-hearth fire and chenille down-filled sofas insure total comfort.

The Ranch House has a parlor, dining room, kitchen, billiards room, sauna/spa/workout room and veranda. The upstairs has 10 private bedrooms, four of which have private bath and shower. The downstairs of the Ranch House features an old fashioned Bunk House and several 'convertible rooms.'

The Guest House: Nestled along Carolina Gulch, this prairie Victorian features a large wrap-around porch with bent willow furniture, an outdoor screened bedroom, and a brick outdoor fireplace. Sit on the porch and visit with your friends and family while the kid's play croquet on the cottage lawn.

The Cottage has three bedrooms, dining room, kitchen, three bathrooms and 2 lofts and an outdoor bedroom.

The Homestead Cabin: It doesn't get more real than this. First built when the ranch was homesteaded in the late 1880's, this log cabin was one of the first homes built in the valley. Although it has been added onto over the years, the original 1-room log cabin is still intact and functions as the den, dining area and bar of this incredible cabin.

This rustic cabin features a main room, also of hand-hewn log, built around the turn of the century, a stone fireplace with quartzite found on the land, and a 100-year-old Majestic wood burning kitchen stove (retrofitted with new Gaggeneau stove top burners and adjacent convection oven).

The Homestead Cabin has a deck/patio, main room, kitchen, den, three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and an outdoor bedroom.

About Rick Prill

I am a general contractor, and I built this property specifically to provide a 'dude ranch' setting at an affordable price for group gatherings of up to 50 people.

Rick Prill purchased this estate in 1989

Why Rick Prill chose South Central Colorado

This is an historic homestead property dating back to the 1870's and it is a unique 'old west' experience, complete with saloon bar, and all the trappings of the wild west!

What makes this estate unique

A private property for a large group, at an affordable price. Sleeping 40 to 50 people in a private residential rental, is very rare, particularly in this price category.

Massage service and caterers that come to your door.......all at an amazingly affordable price for your group gathering or reunion. The owners will work with you to provide resources for any activities you may want to participate in, from golf, to a DJ dance party, country western line dancing, or BBQ feast. Your imagination is your limit!

Red Rock Ranch

  • 5 of 5

Red Rock Ranch is a wonderful spot for a family reunion. The setting is surrounded by Colorado mountain vistas. The property is expansive with plenty of room for outdoor games, swimming, and hot-tub. The landscaping is beautiful with wildflowers and water elements. The lawns are well-kept for bocce, croquet, soccer, softball, or a game of toss. In the Colorado summer there is plenty of sunshine and plenty of daylight for games. The three homes allow accommodations for a large family group. We had 45! Each home has a unique style from rustic to ranch-like and is decorated to fit its personality. The large ranch house is ideal for families with children – private rooms for parents with the bunkhouse for kids nearby. The large dining area with nearby kitchen and terrace allows for even a large group to eat together. The kitchens are well-equipped to cook for a crowd. Red Rock Ranch is the perfect setting for an activity-filled, family gathering. The owners are very accommodating and wonderful to work with. You will not be sorry if you choose the Red Rock Ranch for your next gathering!

A Little Bit Of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Jusy got bacjk from the ranch yesterday! What an incredible week. 35 members of family from all over the states - no one wanted to leave. Wildlife abounds! Mike and Rick are two of the best hosts you could ever ask for. Right there for your every need but they provide so much to the enjoyment of your stay you won't need them which is a shame because they are great, great hosts! If you haven't booked yet I would advise you to book now, the word is getting out. Westcliffe is a cool little town only 15 minutes away snd there is so much else to do. But, the greatest thing is if you don't want to, you can simply stay at the ranch as they provide so much to do right there. Games, ping pong, swimming, basketball, pool, a fabulous movie library and much much more. A special thanks to Mike for all his great assistance, do yourself a favor and visit the Ranch, you won't regrat it!

Company Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had such an awesome time and the stars were definitely the highlight for several people, including myself! The property itself was fantastic and the main house-main room and bbq area is where most of the action happened. The space is set up so nicely for large groups and flows so well! The pictures of the kids lined up on the barstools enjoying root beer floats is adorable! The amount of supplies offered at the ranch were unbelievable. EVERYONE commented on it! It truly is an amazing place and we can't say enough good things about the grounds, scenery and nightlife! It was a pleasure too to meet you and put a face with a name! A testiment to the level of commitment you and Rick have for the property!

We appreciate everything you did for us and allowing us the priviledge to stay on your property!

Red Rock Ranch..Perfect for Reunions!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 34 chose Red Rock Ranch for our reunion. Early August proved to be a perfect time to enjoy the property to its fullest and we had access to every inch of the inviting space. From the moment we drove through the gates, we knew we were in for a treat. The vistas were stunning, the grounds were immaculate and each building was even better than we had imagined. Pictures simply can't accurately represent the serene atmosphere and attention to detail. Access to hiking and rafting are extremely close.This is definitely a well-cared for and much-loved home. Our entire party hopes to return for our next reunion!

Rustic elegance our family will never forget ~ top site in 16 years!

  • 5 of 5

My family plans a reunion every other year ~ 25 of us (whose lives are spread all over the country and overseas) get together somewhere in the world to enjoy a week together. This was our eighth get-together where we celebrated, not only the joy of being together, but my dad's 87th birthday. Destinations have ranged from Jamaica to Canada to Michigan to Turks and Caicos. Accomodations have run the gamut from posh all-inclusives to sparse, private dwellings. I must say that the ranch was the best ever! Three different houses (all with completely different furnishings, style, and ambiance), lovingly tended Colorado gardens and grounds, and unlimited family activities made this an amazing retreat ~ surpassing all others. There are places for large groups to celebrate and be together, and quiet oases to spend intimate time with just a few people. We rotated among the houses for different experiences: sign up for breakfast with grandma and grandpa at the cottage, enjoy a barbecue lunch at the ranch with the twenty-something crowd, star gaze from the hot tub at midnight, or splash in the sparkling pool with the youngins! We live in Hawaii and are yearning for the ranch...how's that for spectacular??? We are scheming a way to get back to RRR. You will love it! Highly, highly recommend!

CANCELLATIONS: Please see our website for more complete information on rates and terms. and our "gradiated refund" Cancellation Policy: Because of the nature of reunions and destination weddings booking 6 months to two years in advance, and ability to fill cancellation periods is unlikely, refunds will only be granted if the cancelled slot is filled with another booking. Cancellations for large group gatherings are rare because if certain participants cannot make the gathering, it does not drive a cancellation. If cancellation is a concern we recommend purchasing trip insurance from any one of the independent carriers which can easily be done online with your rental agreement or term sheet showing the amounts that you need coverage for the trip insurance policy.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

Please ask the owner or check their rental agreement when booking the property.
