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

Spring has sprung without the Spring showers, but the grass is greening and the dandelions are blooming.  The calves are being born each day and we are getting close to our first branding to get the cows and calves ready for Spring and Summer pastures.  The grandkids are raising goats, pigs and sheep so there is never a dull moment.  They are learning life lessons thru birth, death and the responsibility of caring for their animals.
 The cabin is ready for guests and the Crawford Reservoir will fill and the fishing and boating is great both there and the Blue Mesa Reservoir which is a short drive over beautiful Black Mesa.  Plenty of hiking trails and the Black Canyon are close by and always breathtaking.  Come explore the North Fork Valley and visit the many wineries and orchards.  If you book with us we will give you access to our private mountain property.  Come make some memories and experience the quiet of the homestead.  Gather around the fire pit and look at the night sky and hear the coyotes serenade.
