Artist Retreats

   

The Arts Ranch provides two important elements in the creation of art: time and space. Through our Artist Retreats, individual writers or artists will have the space to work on any phase of works in progress. With its beautiful views and elegant rooms, the artist guesthouse provides an awe-inspiring environment in the company of fellow writers/artists.

We have four guest rooms in a private guesthouse situated out in the countryside near Aspen, Colorado--all rooms are appropriate for a single or a couple; prices are PER ROOM, not per person. When you make your reservation, you are reserving a PRIVATE room--we do not offer any roommate accommodations (unless you choose to bring your own!) Two of the guest rooms have a private bathroom; the other two guest rooms share a bathroom (you may choose NOT to share a bathroom when you make your reservation). We offer two-day, four-day and week-long retreats at a cost significantly lower than comparable tourist accommodations.

Please note our mission is not as a tourist destination, so service compared to a hotel or B&B is limited. When you arrive, you will be assigned to a clean room with linens and towels provided--rooms and linens are cleaned after each guest departure but daily maid service is not provided. Guests are responsible for their own meals and local transportation (a shared guest kitchen is available for artist use).

As a converted B&B, the Artist Retreat is set-up in a similar manner: the host family (with children and pets) lives in the main house adjacent to the guesthouse. You may be sharing the common areas of the guesthouse with other guests during your stay.

Artist Retreats are appropriate for artists in the following disciplines: writers, musicians, visual artists, filmmakers. You must bring your own supplies. We do not offer studio space, so any work requiring a formal studio is not appropriate--your workspace is either in your room or outdoors.

We are located out in the countryside, "away from it all" - 15 minutes on country roads to the nearest town - and we offer plenty of outdoor areas in which to create (a gazebo, large terrace, large yard). Hiking and biking are available right outside the door, but you will need a car to get to town.
