Puma Hills River Ranch is a 3rd generation working ranch producing hay, grass fed
beef. The ranch includes 2.4 miles of the Tarryall River that meanders along the beautiful Tarryall Valley. The ranch is peaceful and secluded, yet with many services and adventures just minutes away. The guest house is nestled in the Puma Hills bordered by Pike National Forest overlooking the Tarryall River. From the picture window is a beautiful view of the river, our hay meadows and the mountains beyond.
Our guests can enjoy private fly fishing on the Tarryall River, hiking and biking and scenic views from every direction. There is a horseshoe pit and a campfire ring for warming your toes by the fire and viewing the endless array of stars. The guest house is clean, fully equipped and easily accessible.
In the evenings, guests like to relax on the patio with a refreshing drink while watching the river flow. On occasion a herd of elk or mule deer and a small group of big horn sheep will graze in the meadows below. Eagles, blue heron and many other birds hunt, feed or raise their young in the riparian areas, and some evenings the coyotes will sing to each other.
Bring your horse and ride the beautiful trails, bring your family for an unforgettable vacation or spend your honeymoon under the stars! Come and experience YOUR OWN PRIVATE PARADISE!
Puma Hills River Ranch is located on paved County Rd. 77. Just 7 miles northwest of Lake George, 50 miles northwest of Colorado Springs and 85 miles west of Denver.
We also have space for yoga and meditation retreats.
My grandparents bought this ranch in 1960. As a young boy, I worked on the ranch, fished the river and explored the mountains beyond. Through the years I have kept the ranch alive, continuing to enjoy and protect the land. Some years ago, I decided to open the ranch to travelers and share this unique and beautiful land with others. We hope you enjoy this peaceful place as much as we do!

We had an amazing stay. The home is perfect and the property is fantastic. We were planning on spending 2 days on Pikes Peak, but made an entire day of hiking and exploring Steve and Jennifer's property and driving the trails of the Pike National Forest accessed from their place instead. We will definitely be coming back here.
This is a very nice property for some peace and quiet. We had no phone service which is great for a place like this.
This was a great place for our family to spend time. The hiking and relaxing were top notch. The fly fishing was great. Steve and Jennifer were the best hosts.
We will be back.

Absolutely a five star property. We had a blast fishing and hiking the Tarryall property, Eleven Mile Canyon and Cheesman Canyon. Very quiet and peaceful to all the senses and all of the comforts of home. Steve and Jennifer are such down to earth nice people and helped us out when the weather caused us to have one be delayed by a day by not charging us for the missed night in their home.
I agree with one of the other reviewers that there are few, if any, wonderful secluded and quiet places like this available anymore. We have have rented the ranch house a couple of times already, and will be staying again this August. There are usually 4 of us (all old fishing guys) and this is becoming (or has become) our favorite place for fishing and getting away. We have, over the years, always traveled farther for our fly fishing and stays, but have discovered that for a shorter drive, the Puma Hills River Ranch satisfies our fishing and de-stressing needs. How many other places can offer you over 2 miles of private water to fly fish on, stress free (i.e. no other fishermen to compete with) at such a reasonable price. In addition, for just a short drive, you have access to the Tarryall lake, Dream Stream, 11-mile canyon, Tomahawk SWA, Spinney and the 11-mile reservoir.
Steve and Jennifer couldn't be better hosts and are very helpful in assuring that you have everything you need to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The house has all of the amenities you could possibly need, to make for a comfortable stay. After a long day fishing or exploring, you can relax on the covered front porch area with a cold drink, watch the wildlife, enjoy the scenery and listen to the sounds from the river during a casual conversation. The inside of the house is very clean and modern. The Living room is quite comfortable for catching up at the end of a days activities. There is no internet and cell phone coverage will vary with the carrier, so it really makes for a very stress free and quite stay.
This place is truly a gem and definitely recommended !
My husband and I love to fly fish in Colorado and the first time we pulled into the drive way of Puma Hills River Ranch we knew immediately that we had found the "Hidden Gem of Colorado". Steve and Jennifer are two of the nicest people you could ever meet and are extremely accommodating. They make you feel that their private ranch home is totally yours and everything is immaculate, clean and has everything you could possibly need! Last year we invited both of my brothers and my husband's son to join us and they all said, "You have found the perfect place and we need to make this our yearly trip!!" We made our reservation for 2016 before we left and can't wait to relax and fish in one of the most beautiful places on earth!!
