If you are looking to get far away where you can see every star at night, enjoy the sound of a pristine headwaters stream, look out on horses and green pastures and walk out your door to some of the most beautiful alpine trails in the world, the Cabin at Welder Ranch is your place. Moose, elk, and deer travel these forests and meadows, and the Cabin's adjacency to the enormous and pristine White River National Forest gives you incredible space to imagine yourself back in time. Unwind and rejuvenate in alpine nature, with each season offering its own incredible and unique beauty. Make a fire, cocoon over your own homecooked meals, enjoy a cocktail or hot chocolate and listen to the outdoor sounds as you sit on the porch overlooking open meadows with beaver ponds and gushing streams. Ride horses, hike, fish, and explore. This is a dream location for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts. Our ranch property is surrounded by the White River National Forest and has been in the family for over 30 years. There are 100's of miles of streams and trails for hiking, riding, and OHV's. There is an additional charge for pets but they are welcome as long as they stay off the furniture. We operate a guide and outfitting service from the ranch and provide horseback rides and back country trips. The cabin was built around 1973. It has a bedroom, full bathroom, living area, and kitchen. It uses electric heat and has a wood stove.Cabin is surrounded by a 1,000,000 acres of beautiful White River National forest and Flat Tops Wilderness. The cabin sets above the banks of the White River on our 120 acre private ranch property.   Cabin just got remodeled! Very nice for couples and getaways

Private cabin on the White River
Great cabin in a beautiful setting. Our goal was a few days of peace and quiet and that is what we got. The cabin is cozy and comfortable and has what you will need for some time away. We saw a lot of wildlife in the area - fox, elk, deer, coyotes, etc.. Great stay!

He lives on a ranch and offers outfitting trips with horses. It was fun to watch the horses coming and going. Our cabin had everything we needed on one floor. What we loved the most was the quiet, the pond, the birds, and the beautiful aspen in front of the cabin. Shawn is very responsive--if we asked him for something he would deliver it right away. But he also gave us the privacy we needed otherwise. We would definitely go back! Good host, wonderful setting.
