5 CABINS @ LA GARITA RANCH 6 MI PRIVATE FISHING, RIDING HIKING

South Fork Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabins, 16 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 16 Baths, (Sleeps 8-11)

Now available for rent for the first time in over 100 years! These well-appointed cabins are situated at the heart of Phipps La Garita Ranch overlooking the Rio Grande valley, our lakes and the lush meadows of Bellows Creek. Our property is bordered on three sides by the Rio Grande National Forest and is refuge to herds of elk, Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep, Canadian geese, eagles, ospreys, great blue herons, black-faced ibis and numerous other species of wildlife. The trout fishing here is superb and very private on 2-1/2 miles of river, 3-1/2 miles of improved stream and four manmade lakes. By prior arrangement, our guests can also ride horses or hike on 7 well-established trails around the ranch. The entire ranch was formerly leased to the prestigious La Garita Club. Guests have included General John “Black Jack” Pershing, President Dwight Eisenhower, Supreme Court Justice Byron White, and Walt Disney.

Each of the three cabins—named the “Ritz”, the 'Waldorf' and the “Biltmore” respectively--contains 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. Each has a living room with a stone, wood-burning fireplace, picture windows overlooking the meadows, lakes and surrounding forests; an eating area and an efficient kitchen with settings for 6 people. Each of the living rooms and back bedrooms opens onto an outdoor deck with a gas barbecue grill, outdoor furniture and a supply of wood for your fires in the evening.

If prospective guests need more space, we also have two other well-appointed guest apartments called the , Pierre and the Plaza each with two bedrooms (king-size beds and two twin beds), 2 bathrooms, living room, dining areas, complete kitchens, and an outdoor deck with barbeque and occasional furniture.

In addition to fishing and riding, there is a lot to do at Phipps La Garita Ranch. We have 6 mountain bikes, a swimming pool and 8-person spa, a horseshoe pit, a row boat and canoe for use on the first lake, marked hiking trails around the property, and a recreation hall with two fireplaces, furniture and a ping-pong .

The exciting art and mining community of Creede is 15 minutes away with the nationally known Creede Repertory Theater, museums, shopping, art galleries, restaurants, and jeeping and river- rafting opportunities. Golfers will find the award-winning Rio Grande Club in South Fork (20 minutes away) an excellent place to play.

Phipps La Garita Ranch has been our family's summer home for 5 generations, and we love sharing it with an expanding number of new guests who regard the property as 'a jewel on the Uper Rio Gande.'

JoLynn Richter purchased this cabin in 1908

You can't beat the exceptional fishing, riding, hiking, swimming and rafting on the Rio Grande. Just minutes from the exciting town of Creede, CO with its outstanding theater, mines, museums, art galleries and shops. A truly beautiful and serene property surrounded by a million-acre wilderness just waiting to be explored.

A fabulous place for family reunions, weddings, business retreats and conferences.

horseback riding

My husband and I took our 7 yr old to go horseback riding for the first time. The trail was beautiful and covered small streams which made for a more interesting ride than your standard horseback trail ride. The setting was really beautiful, very quiet and remote, yet close enough to Creede to run into town easily. Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. We will definitely return.

Great, relaxing family vacation with spectacular vistas

Our family of 11 (children spouses and grandchildren) stayed at La Garita in July 2013. The ranch really has something for everyone. My husband and I loved the pool and hot tub. Our kids loved hiking, fishing and horse shoes. My grandchildren loved to go out on the lake in the kayak and row boats. My 11 year old grandson spent one whole day out in the kayak fishing. My two daughters, my grandson and I went horseback riding. I had a great (1 1/2 hour!) massage in a serene setting overlooking the lake. However, the best part was just being able to be in such a beautiful, quiet setting with my family and having the time to read 2 books!

Owner's Response: Phipps La Garita Ranch has always been a great summer place for family gatherings, ever since General "Black Jack" Pershing brought his two sons to the ranch in the 1920's to learn the self-sufficient ways of the West with some quality "bushwhacking." We may be somewhat more "sedate" now, but the shared experiences of natural beauty, adventure and serenity will last a life time, and over many generations.

The entire staff at La Garita Ranch was superb! They made my fishing trip very fun and relaxed. What's not to like about private rivers, streams and lakes teaming with trout, comfortable rooms, swimming pools/hot tubs - all surrounded by beautiful mountains! I will return.

Fantastic Time in Colorado Golden Days

We stayed for two weeks in July and August in 2012 and thoroughly enjoyed it. We have stayed in other places around Creede (Wason Ranch, Antlers) and this was wonderful!

The listing for La Garita pretty much understated the beauty and seclusion of this ranch. There are numerous streams and hiking get-aways on the property and direct access to pretty much undisturbed portions of the National forest.

The fishing os pretty good and the accomodations are very nice. It was very accesible to Creede. We were visited by the owners on multiple occasions -- they wanted to see if there was anything they could do to make our stay better. The managers were very helpful and addressed our (very minor) concerns immediately.

I recommend this location to anybody who enjoys hiking, fishing and seclusion. All the guests are very friendly and helpful, we got to know several of them.

Owner's Response: We love making new friends among those who find La Garita's friendliness and private beauty just their cup of tea.

We enjoyed our cabin. It was clean and comfortable. The fishing was very poor. I don't like lake fishing and Bellows is not good. I also like telephones and TV. In short, our stay was boring.
Owner's Response: We're sorry about the fishing...must have been the phases of the moon. Other's have said the fishing was great this summer. If enough guests want it, we may put a satellite TV in the Recreation Hall.
