Lifetime Memories

Wake up to the serenity of the Rocky Mountains and melodious birdsong at the Diamond J Ranch. Our historic guest ranch has fourteen cozy cabins, a lodge with eight snug and comfortable guest rooms, two large family cabins and a full family dining room on site serving robust family-style meals. Cast a line in the gold medal waters of the Frying Pan River and ride horseback through the White River National Forest. This welcoming enclave is the Colorado destination of your imagination; the idyllic setting for recreation and rejuvenation with family and friends.

Near Aspen and Basalt, Colorado—and just up the road from Ruedi Reservoir—the Diamond J Ranch has hiking, mountain biking, fly fishing and trail riding close at hand. With its proximity to Hagerman Pass, Chapman Reservoir and the famed Tenth Mountain Division Hut system, it’s also the perfect spot to stage your four-wheel-drive exploration, backcountry ski adventure or hunting experience.

Set on 27 scenic acres on the south side of the Frying Pan River, Diamond J Ranch is the site for family reunions, weddings and team-building retreats. We can host up to 70 people of all ages in a variety of accommodations that range from basic lodge rooms to a gracious and fully appointed family cabin with ADA accessibility.

We look forward to hosting you and your family or group very soon. Welcome.
