Elk Creek Ranch is a beautiful, private, 260 acre hay and horse ranch that is surrounded by B.L.M. and forest service land. Located 9 miles north of Lake City, it is situated in a scenic valley with beautiful hayfields and spectacular mountain views. The road leading up to the house is a mile long dirt road that is maintained, but rugged. The property has been in the Thompson family since 1878 and the original cabin and barn still stand. The home is approximately 2300 sq. ft. and has wonderful drinking water that is supplied by a well. The home was built in 1970 and has been remodeled in 1987 and 1993 and has been well maintained thereafter. There are 3 bedrooms and one bath upstairs with a kitchen, T.V., livingroom and deck. Downstairs has 2 large bedrooms, bathroom with washer/dryer and a small kitchen. All bedrooms have new and comfortable beds and of course all the linens to go with them. Both kitchens are equipped with all the essentials to make those country meals for you and your family.
Options for your convenience are the entire house or rental of downstairs or upstairs units (only one tenant or group at a time will be in the home). Both floors have wood stoves, but baseboard gas heat is available for your convenience. Neighboring Elk Creek Ranch is the Ute Trail Ranch and the "actual" Ute trail used by the natives in the 1800's whose footsteps once traveled through the described property. Staying at Elk Creek allows you the rare opportunity to be on a ranch and without the crowds. The serenity and beauty that awaits the visitor cannot be adequately described with words alone.
The irrigation ditch next to the house makes for fun playtime for kids. Convenient water and grazing available for horses.
*Corralled pasture available for an additional fee
*Pet Deposits required for well-mannered four-legged family members who will not interfere with livestock
