Welcome to the Last Resort Ranch in central Colorado! This beautiful property consists of 1,027 contiguous acres that boast an impressive mix of meadows, mountains, ponds, and views. Located just 1.5 hours West of Colorado Springs and under 3 hours from Denver International Airport, the Last Resort Ranch is the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of Colorados Front Range. This ranch includes a custom, off-the-grid, 4-bedroom home and a large barn to store all the big kids toys. The ranch is home to a wide variety of wildlife, including Elk, Mule Deer, Bear, Turkey, and Bobcat. In addition, the property borders the Pike National Forest which opens the door to hunt and explore tens of thousands of more acres of public land!
The custom log home has commanding views of the ranch, as well as the snow-capped peaks and rolling mountains that surround it. While located at the end of a gated private road, the property includes road maintenance and snow removal up to one of the interior gates of the ranch. The home is totally off-the-grid and has solar power, a 10K backup generator, propane boiler heating system, wood fireplace, domestic well with 1,200-gallon cistern, new paint, hardwood floors and a wrap-around Trex system deck. In addition, there is a large detached barn to store tractors, ATVs, snowmobiles, trailers, tools, or anything else deemed necessary to fully enjoy this one of a kind ranch!
The Last Resort Ranch is located in Game Management Unit 58, which is a limited draw unit for Elk, Mule Deer, Bear and Antelope. The property is eligible to apply for big game tags through the Landowner Voucher program. The perfect mix of meadows, aspen groves, dark timber, and live water make this ranch a haven for Elk, especially once hunting season starts. The current owners are careful to only hunt certain parts of the ranch, leaving other parts as sanctuary areas for the Elk and Deer to rest and feed. The unique combination of Merriam Turkeys and the occasional Antelope make this ranch one of the most diverse hunting properties on the market today. Even trout and ducks can be found in a few of the property's 7 different ponds. Obviously, these serve as terrific water sources for both the wildlife and cattle that graze in the area. In addition, there are 2 stock tanks that help assure that the animals never have far to go for their next drink of water.
While the Last Resort Ranch offers opportunities to hike, camp, snowmobile, ski, sled, jeep, or just sit and watch the clouds float by, there are an amazing amount of additional recreational options in the general area as well. The famous rivers of the Arkansas and South Platte are both within half an hour drive of the ranch, as well as Spinney, Eleven Mile and Antero Reservoirs. The stunning depths of the Royal Gorge, gambling in the historic town of Cripple Creek, and breathtaking views from Pikes Pike are all within an hour of the ranch, so there is always something to keep you and your friends busy.
In summary, whether you are looking for a ranch for hunting, development, cattle grazing, or just relaxing, the Last Resort Ranch should be the first place you look! Call Mike Callan today to schedule your own private showing. Co-Listed with Biggs Real Estate Team
