Secluded and private with gorgeous mountain views, this home is on a working ranch midway between Ouray and Ridgway. Serene pastures surround this home and its historic outbuildings, often occupied by cattle and horses (and occasionally herds of elk!).
The home has been renovated and beautifully decorated with western and woodsy furniture, lamps and accessories. Custom window coverings adorn the majority of the windows in the home.
The main floor of the home has a great kitchen with a rustic flair and new, modern appliances like a stainless steel fridge and gas stove; a dining table that comfortably seats 6; a bedroom with queen bed; and a bedroom with a combination bunk bed with a double on the bottom and a twin on the top. There is also a full bath with tub/shower combination on this floor. The living room is richly furnished, tastefully decorated, and comfortable with a fireplace and flat screen TV.
The upstairs is a beautifully furnished master bedroom with a king bed in a log frame. Double doors open onto a small deck for stargazing. The spacious master bath includes a deep, jetted tub, two sinks, and walk-in shower.
The Elk Valley Ranch ranch house is equipped with satellite TV in every bedroom and the living room. There is no Internet service in this area of the valley, but if you need to stay "connected," the office has a hot spot that you can rent for a minimal fee. Please inquire with the office about availability. There is also a washer and dryer.
Bring your horse! Corrals are available and lots of room to ride!
Parking is abundant for trucks, trailers, Jeeps, and off-road vehicles.
The Elk Valley Ranch was featured in a recent episode of 'Top Gear Crosses the Continental Divide,' where the team crosses the Divide on a mule trail using mini-vans. Several scenes from the video were shot at the ranch and in the Ridgway/Ouray area. Something to see!
This is a non-smoking property.
No pets, please!
