At the foot of hulking Thirtyninemile Mountain, which is the southern sentinel to the entirety of South Park, rests the ranch born from the early effort of those western pioneers. Approximately two hours from Colorado's two most populous cities and their international airports, the ranch consists of approximately 2,450 acres. Two hours and fifteen minutes from Denver, one hour and thirty minutes from Colorado Springs and about an hour to the world class ski resort of and ski town of Breckenridge the ranch is very well located for those seeking twelve months of adventure. The ranch is offered in three configurations: Rogers Mountain Ranch ("RMR") at approximately 1,250 acres, Sims Creek Ranch at approximately 1,200 acres and combined at approximately 2,450 acres. The two ranches are nearly contiguous with a connection through BLM land. This listing will focus on RMR.
The crown jewel of Rogers Mountain Ranch is its approximate 10,000 square foot fully custom, off-grid rock and timber lodge. Actress Goldie Hawn and actor Kurt Russell constructed the lodge in the late 90's. Under current ownership since 2010 it has been meticulously and routinely maintained by onsite ranch management. The lodge itself has been valued significantly below its replacement cost in this offering.
There are a total of eleven ponds on RMR. Pruden, Union and the Balm of Gilead Creeks drain the ranch and fill its ponds. Anglers and non-anglers alike will delight by the trout stocked in six of the ponds on the ranch. If additional angling pursuits are desired, fly fishing on the "Dream Stream", a Gold Medal designated stretch of the South Platte River which runs through Elevenmile Canyon and Spinney Mountain reservoirs can be enjoyed as it is only a ten-minute drive from the ranch. The boat ramp to the largest of the three reservoirs is mere minutes from the ranch.
Multiple deeded parcels of land comprise the ranch.
