Bear Mountain Lodge
Located on the Wyoming/Colorado border, the 35.25 acre Bear Mountain Lodge is one of 14 homesteads situated within the highly desirable and well maintained, 3,752-acre Fish Creek Ranch. With no expense spared in the construction of the 4,876 square foot home, every last detail was considered to optimize luxurious features while preserving a traditional cabin feel with sweeping views of the surrounding area. Containing big game species of all kinds and ample opportunity to catch world-class trout, Fish Creek Ranch provides the ultimate Wyoming ranch experience without the associated upkeep and maintenance. Fish Creek Ranch is maintained by a year-round ranch hand, so if this won't be your primary residence, it will be well cared for in your absence, and you can access the ranch any time of year. Fish Creek Ranch has miles of well cared-for trails, one of which leads to a gate allowing access to Arapaho Roosevelt National Forest in Colorado for further recreational opportunity. For those looking for a convenient and luxurious escape to the Wyoming mountains, Bear Mountain Lodge is sure to exceed your expectations!
Situated on the highest hill in Fish Creek Ranch, Bear Mountain Lodge is located roughly 30 minutes south of Laramie for immediate conveniences such as groceries and hospitals, and a little over an hour west of Cheyenne. The property is accessed via paved Highway 287, then five miles down county maintained Cherokee Park Road. Commercial air service is available through Laramie by way of Denver. Fish Creek Ranch borders Arapaho Roosevelt National Forest in Colorado, allowing easy access to additional recreation on public lands.
Bear Mountain Lodge sits on 35.25 acres deeded specifically to the homeowner, with access to over 3,700 acres owned by the Fish Creek Ranch community. Well timbered with peaks, valleys, meadows, creeks, and ponds, the ranch is easily traversable thanks to a well cared for and masterfully developed trail system fit for horses and off-road vehicles. Spend the day riding from pond to pond catching fish, or head into Colorado through the community gate to explore or hunt National Forest. Maintained by a year-round ranch hand, the roads are plowed to your front door for worry free access during winter months. Operating as a wildlife preserve, the ranch attracts species of all kinds for your viewing pleasure. If you own horses, bring them along to the ranch and leave them in the care of the ranch hand! If not, Fish Creek Ranch has horses for you to borrow when available.
HUNTING AND FISHING
Fish Creek Ranch operates as a wildlife preserve, so hunting is not allowed within the borders of the ranch. However, the community borders National Forest in Colorado Game Management Unit 8, allowing for quick and easy access to some of the best elk and deer hunting in Colorado. Unit 8 typically has over-the-counter tags for both elk and mule deer, allowing you to hunt year after year. Fish Creek Ranch contains multiple ponds for fishing, some of which are stocked, and some of which contain wild trout. Fishing access is not open to the public, giving homeowners and guests exclusive access to well-managed wildlife ecosystems.
Nestled on a well-timbered hill, the impeccably designed 4,876 square foot, 3 bed/5 bath main house is the pride of Fish Creek Ranch. The house was built using natural elements, some of which originate from the ranch. As you pull into the massive log portico, the distinctive entry doors make an immediate statement. Accented by hammered metal, the entry is sure to set the tone and make a lasting first impression. Upon entering the home, the interior walls & ceilings are constructed of old-world timbers, pine tongue & groove, and stone. The home features a fireplace in almost every room, Homerwood hand-scraped hickory wood floors, Italian granite throughout the kitchen and bathrooms, custom alder cabinets & closets and stunning artisan crafted light fixtures on the vaulted ceilings. There are multiple conveniences built into the home that may initially be taken for granted but are sure to be appreciated; such as the house being wired through a computer, connecting light features, speakers, and TV's throughout the house. If you like to entertain, this house is set up to entertain lavishly! Containing one bed, one bath, and a full kitchen, the guest cabin provides extra lodging when you have a full house. The garage attached to the cabin provides plenty of space to function as both a small shop and storage for toys/vehicles.
