I guess I've been in love with the West for as long as I can remember. I grew up with stories of my Father's childhood on ranches in the Roaring Fork Valley of Western Colorado, before tractors came to that country. My Mother's Father was a book and record collector and had a wonderful collection of Western History and Art Literature.
In the last 36 years I've worked as a Ranch Hand, Range Rider, Horse Shoer, House Carpenter, Dude Wrangler, Hunting Guide and last but not least a Camp Cook. I've been doing pencil and pen drawings for most of that time. I've also, been playing guitar and writing songs for about 25 years now, which still surprises me?
My wife, Nancy and I live on the ranch, we raise hay, Skipper W Quarter Horses and Hell once in a while!
Come and see us! Ross
Privacy with views of Grand Mesa, quiet and peaceful. Watch the horses graze in the pasture. Beautiful sunsets against the dobie hills.
Bring your horse and ride on Grand Mesa or ride in our arena, pens available. Great place to stay when hauling horses.
Patricia and Landon,
We so enjoyed having you at the ranch and we hope you can come again next month and spend the whole week! The cards are on our website
Let me know if you have any questions.
This property was extremely clean and very well taken care of. The only suggestions I would have for the owner would be to add a WiFi extender from the main home to the rental so that WiFi can be accessed for Netflex for the kids or access to your personal laptop. Without, the extender WiFi is very sketchy. There is no cell service inside the residence or outside until you get to the main gate for the property.
Best Ever Birthday Slumber Party - Perfect Stay! Nancy is the best, she was right there to greet us. She showed me the entire house and everything I would need to know about while the rest of my group unloaded the car. The house could not have been any cleaner. The view was nice. The house was spacious. Beds and couches were comfy. It was very quiet so we all got good sleep. You see, my daughter was turning 11 years old and wanted to have a slumber party. Our home currently does not have the room for it, plus the giggling would keep my husband awake all night. My solution was to rent a place that had everything we needed and ample room to play. This was the place. My daughter already wants to come back for next year's party. However, we might come before that. Thank you again Nancy and Ross!!
Perfect quiet rural setting, just like our place in Arizona. Felt like a home away from home. Extremely clean, set my mind at ease letting Granddaughter crawl around. Got to meet Nancy and she is very nice. Thank you
We would highly recommend this vacation rental to anyone. It is a very comfortable place to stay. Plenty of sleeping areas, plenty of bathrooms. Ross, Nancy and Badger are very nice people and dog.
We have stayed at the Ranch 5 times now. We generally have 5 adults and two small children. The house is a great fit for our families. Our little boys will start 'nagging' us about the trip as soon as they find out we are returning. We have found the Ranch to be our home away from home. We especially love the horses and seeing the wonderful stars at night. You feel like you're out in the middle of nowhere but only 15 minutes from groceries.
My elderly father and wife (she has Parkinson's) have stayed at the Ranch and love the fact that the house is perfect for her mobility issues.
We will continue to come stay at the Ranch for as long as they will have us!
Our family spent 2 nights at the Ranch over Thanksgiving break. It was very nice. Lots of room. Comfy in all ways. Plenty of everything we could have wanted or needed. We had a great time.
Enjoy the Grand Mesa, over 300 lakes for fishing, hiking, horseback riding and wildlife viewing. Grand Mesa also offers groomed cross country ski trails by the Grand Mesa Nordic Council, gmnc.org snow mobile trails and Powder Horn Ski Resort. The Gunnison River has 13 miles of Gold Medal Waters. Dominquez and Escalante Canyons that have Indian petroglyphs and old homesteader's cabins. Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. The Colorado National Moument. Ouray hot springs referred to as the Switzerland of America.
