The Aspen retreat where actor Kevin Costner takes refuge has once again become available for a vacation sojourn. The 160 acre property can be had for $36K per night, but one day won’t quite be enough to take full advantage of the estate’s amenities. Heck, just compiling the two full baseball teams for a game on the regulation Field of Dreams diamond will take a full morning of casting.
Dunbar Ranch, as the property is known, dates to 2000, about a decade after Costner’s self-produced, self-helmed 1990 Western epic Dances with Wolves brought him a pair of Oscar statuettes and five more besides, including one for Best Film, and a year after he appeared on the silver screen in Kennedy-era cold war docudrama Thirteen Days.
The main house is a whale of a place, classy and cavernous both, and occasionally shows off the expected rustic Rocky Mountain-inspired design elements, but the overall effect is more relaxed Americana. The estate features another two single-family homes; across the property there are a total of 12 bedrooms and at least eight baths. Listing information states that the ranch can comfortably accommodate 27 guests.
The recreational possibilities on the estate are seemingly endless. The main house’s extravagant waterfall spa will do for recharging. The Roaring Fork River passes through the grounds, and for fishermen grabbing a Sage six-weight and running down to its banks to become a temporary castaway will appeal. Kayakers and canoers, skiers, hikers, mountain bikers, brides and grooms and tobogganists will be similarly pleasurably distracted according to the season.
Costner currently stars in neo-Western television series Yellowstone. His upcoming projects include epic Western film Horizon, with Sienna Miller and Luke Wilson.
