Peaceful Off Grid Gateaway Awaits!

#1 Colorado Vacation

Originally homesteaded by the Porter family in the late 1800's, Porter Ranch has now opened its doors to you, our customer. Still a working hay, cattle, goat, pig and elk ranch, Porter Ranch is now operated by fifth and sixth generation family members and encompasses thousands of acres of the beautiful Alkali Creek valley south of New Castle, Colorado.

Be among the few public to visit this exquisite setting. Escape to breathtaking vistas, abundant wildlife, and the peaceful tranquility of this working ranch in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.

“We loved our time on the ranch. Perfect accommodations for our family of 4. The kitchen had everything we could need including some staple spices, etc for our meals. There was so much room to roam and so much to see. Mary and Terry were very friendly and helpful and we LOVED having Foxy (the dog) keep us company. Would recommend this to anyone looking for some down time away from the hustle and bustle. We especially loved all of the wildlife!”

“We are a family of four with five and seven year old little girls. Elk, mule deer, cows, geese, and ducks were our neighbors. Endless mountains, lands and a pond was the view from our window. Mary gave my girls the ranch experience with feeding chickens and collecting their eggs which they will never forget. It was easy to make ourselves at home as everything we could possibly need was already there! ”

“We really enjoyed our stay, though it was cut short due to a change in our schedules. Mary is a lovely host! The cabin is well equipped and cozy - bring some of your own books, games, and non-electronics and digital detox for a weekend! The internet was spotty and slow at best. We would recommend planning on being disconnected - it's such a nice place to visit, why ruin it with your cell phone. :)”
