The Western Ranch is an awesome property located in the middle of elk country! The Routt National Forest boundary is within 5 minutes from the properties boundary. Elk frequent the ranch and wallow on the ponds outer banks right in front of the cabin! The large spring fed pond is stocked with trout for family and friends to enjoy.
The property is located within 1 hour from Craig, Colorado and within 1/2 hour of the Wyoming border. The Routt National Forest access trail takes off of the properties NW corner and is within a 5 minute walk. This area of the forest is great hunting on the back side of Mt. Welba. The ranch is located inside of the Wilderness Ranches boundary and there is a $75.00 HOA fee. A small price to pay to have multiple NF access points and several stocked fishing ponds along with a small private hunting reserve that also borders the NF.
The custom 2100 sq. ft cabin boast of 3 bedrooms, 1 full bath/laundry room, kitchen, mud room,sun room, living room and a huge loft with room enough to sleep 10 plus. The cabin is powered with a propane fired remote start generator and with solar. From the sun room you can walk out and enjoy the covered deck overlooking the spring fed pond and meadow. There is a nice 2000 sq. ft. barn/shop with loft and a spring/seep that feeds the cabin with water.
The Western Ranch is a very private mountain property consisting of mostly mature pines and aspen trees filled with wildlife through its parameters. The Owners have recently completed major upgrades to the boundary fence with new lay down fencing and clearing path ways and shooting alleys. It is not uncommon to see herds of elk and deer laying and feeding in the large meadow. Even though the property is filled with dark timber the views are incredible expanding over the top of Long Mountain and beyond. Setting up the spotting scope on the covered deck viewing large elk herds on Long Mountain in the evening and mornings is another incredible feature of this property. This is a very manageable sized ranch with amazing hunting! Call Lonnie Gustin today to view this incredible mountain property!!
