The space
Our Big Bear cabin is comfortable and spacious with all of the amenities you need for a perfect stay, including Direct TV and a full kitchen. You can enjoy your morning coffee on the front porch overlooking the Frying Pan River and red rocks that surround it. Our cabin has one king size bed in the main bedroom, two queen beds in the back bedroom, a pull out couch in the living room, and two bathrooms. The cabin is great for groups or families.

The Frying Pan River is catch and release. Only fly fishing is permitted on the Frying Pan. Spinner rods and live bait are illegal, as it is bad for the trout.

*We do not have WiFi* Guests love waking up to the sounds of the river, and they also enjoy the views. Cell phone reception is great at the cabins because we aren't too far from town (Verizon works the best). Unfortunately, there is no internet, but it is a good excuse to disconnect and enjoy the scenery.

The Dallenbach Ranch operates as a popular wedding/event venue from May - October, so we do not have weekend cabin availability during those months. If you are wanting to rent the cabin(s) to have an elopement or small wedding, there is an additional site fee, so please send us an inquiry. Guests are not permitted to host weddings/elopements/dinner parties/etc, no matter the size, without consent. This has been an issue previously, so if you are hosting an unauthorized event, you will be asked to leave without refund.

If this cabin doesn't meet your needs, we also have three other cabins available for rent on the property with the same beautiful views. Our A-Frame cabin sleeps 4, our Fisherman's Cabin sleeps 2, and our Dodge City cabin (not riverfront) sleeps 4.

Where you’ll be

Basalt, Colorado, United States

The cabin is right on the river, and it feels secluded, but downtown Basalt is only 5 minutes away, so you can eat at some wonderful restaurants, hit the spa, do some shopping, or pick up some gear for fly-fishing.

In 1973, my grandfather and race driver, Wally Dallenbach, won the California 500 Indy car race and purchased the The Dallenbach Ranch property with his prize money. For over 40 years my family has been running and maintaining the ranch, making it one of the most beautiful and sought after destinations in Colorado. I'm one of Wally's grandsons, who lives on the ranch along with my wife, Courtney. When we're not getting our Airbnb cabins ready for guests, I travel the country as a professional driving instructor and race commentator. Courtney has a masters degree in marketing, so she takes cares of our websites, social media, and runs the wedding and events that we host here at the ranch. She does most of the corresponding with guests, and she does a great job of making our properties cozy and inviting. We love to spend time at home on the ranch enjoying the views and river. Our black and tan coonhound, Shelby, can be seen running around the property and greeting folks with her signature bae.
