Stewart Homestead Cabin

A unique resting place in the Onion Valley near Crawford, Colorado!

Henry and Margaret Stewart homesteaded this area of Western Colorado in the early 1900’s and their descendents continue to reside in this area today.  The original cabin stands next door to the current cabin where up to nine adults can relax, eat and enjoy all the beauty Western Colorado has to offer its guests.
Join us for a weekend or a week! Click here to take a Virtual Tour of the Cabin and take in the views of the West Elk Mountains!
Stewart Homestead Cabin is operated by the Ayer Ranch, a working cattle ranch owned by descendants of the original Stewart family. Call us for reservations and more information today!

What’s Happening on the Ranch

It is feeling like an early spring in the North Fork Valley of Western Colorado and we are enjoying these lovely days with new born calves, lambs and pigs.  As the snow gives away to green grass and blooms of wild onions and flowers the cabin is being readied for your stay.  The blooming fruit trees in Paonia and Hotchkiss are always a sight to see as the trees prepare for their bountiful harvest with some of the best fruit in the state.   Plan your vacation to the Stewart Homestead cabin for close access to the Black Canyon of the Gunnision, Crawford, Blue Mesa and Morrow Point Dams, and fishing in our private stream.  Interested in hiking one of our many area trails, we have a detailed brochure available at the cabin.   Come play badmitton and other family games and relax by a outdoor fire and roast s'mores and enjoy the quiet as your gaze up at the night sky.  Watch the deer grazing in the meadows and listen to the coyotes sing.  This truly is a place of peace and relaxation and your home away from home.  Reserve your time now.  Susan
