Lodge at River's Edge Cabin

Joshua Creek Ranch operates Lodge at River's Edge Cabin located on the Frying Pan River in Basalt, Colorado. Just a short 20-minute drive from Aspen and a few minutes less to the Aspen airport.

Enjoy fly fishing and water sports in the summer sun

Summer is high season in this area where average temperatures range from a cool, crisp 50 degrees in the morning, warming up to 80's by late afternoon. Frequently, summer showers crop up to cool the afternoon temperature down into the 70’s. Opportunities for summer activities abound, especially fly fishing on four rivers within a 45-minute drive from the Cabin, the closest being the Frying Pan which is right outside the Cabin's back door. The Roaring Fork River is five minutes away; the Taylor and Colorado Rivers are also within 45 minutes drive time. The Frying Pan and Roaring Fork Rivers are “gold metal” rivers with native rainbow trout and brown trout in abundance.

Besides fly fishing, other summer activities include white water rafting, hiking, biking, golfing, evening music events, theater performances, festivals, craft markets and more.

Big game hunting in the autumn is easily accessible from the Cabin.

Ski and relax surrounded by snow in the Colorado winter

Winter sports are just 20 minutes away at nearby Aspen and Snow Mass, two of this country's top ski resorts. If skiing is not for you, then try the winter fly fishing on the Frying Pan River, where monster rainbow trout hungrily await your fly.

Tucked into the riverside landscape this historic log cabin was originally built by Colorado Midland Railroad workers in 1896, and restored in 1996. The cabin comfortably sleeps two to four guests and includes a fully-equipped kitchen, cable TV with DVD player, wireless internet, a bedroom with a queen bed, a loft with two twin beds, living room with a queen sleeper sofa, radiant in-floor heating, a gas stove, air conditioning, washer/dryer and outdoor grill. The cabin is a favorite among Basalt visitors!!

Enjoy relaxing by the river in your own private flagstone sitting area just outside the cabin’s front door!  The cabin is located directly on the Frying Pan River and is one block to Basalt's restaurants and shops!
