Nestled in the Cherry Creek valley of Southwest Colorado between Durango and Mesa Verde. Come out where you can see the stars as they where meant to be seen, not hidden by the lights of the city. And while you can hit the internet or make a call if you want, your cell phone won’t be breaking up the tranquillity of your visit.
We are a small, family operated cattle ranch raising the ancient Scottish Highlander Breed naturally on grass without drugs or feedlots. This breed has been around for several hundred years, and a herd is kept in England to feed the Royal Family!
There is over 400 acres of private land waiting to welcome you. Explore, hike, or relax in the hammock by the creek. The horses love visitors (and carrots)… and the dogs will become your new best friends.
With many activities in the area, there is something for everyone… kids, couples, families. We are close to the San Juan National Forest, with miles of horse, hiking, and ATV trails. Mesa Verde National Park is a short 30 minute drive. And Durango with all its attractions and activities (including the Durango-Silverton Train, White Water Rafting, Shops and restaurants), is just a short drive away. The small town of Mancos is nearby with horseback riding.
If you are a beginning (or experienced) bluegrass player we might be able to arrange a jam around the campfire, let us know if you are interested.
Would you love to have an Elk Mount on your fireplace but don’t want to shoot one to get it? We can arrange a trophy dart hunt for you in the fall (book early, they sell out) starting in late August where you get to keep the horns but the Elk will be just fine and will grow a new rack next year! There is also a possibility of a Turkey hunt in the spring season (not guided).
And don’t forget the Winter activities! We are 45 minutes from Durango Mountain Resort, and near Telluride as well. The Durango Polar Express is a great winter Christmas time activity with children.
Come visit! You’ll feel like part of the family. Dogs are welcome too, as long as they are well behaved.
