Nessie Zitlau purchased this house in 1998
Why Nessie Zitlau chose Swan Valley
The land adjacent to Granite Creek Ranch became available some years ago and now our cattle herd grazes the fields. We saw an opportunity to share the beauty of this exceptional 'corner of the world' with others, so are opening up the Aspen Hills Retreat to families and other groups for their vacations, retreats and reunions.
