Project Description

There are ranches that come along once in a lifetime, where a bit of heaven is experienced on this earth. The Chimney Peak Ranch is that ranch; where a combination of extreme beauty, privacy and master craftsmanship collide. Located east of the mountain town of Ridgway, Colorado and at the foot of the Cimarron Range of the San Juan Mountains is a working western cattle ranch on 2,392 +/- deeded acres along with a 25,798 +/- acre Forest permit. Begging at the valley floor, this complete ranch starts in productive, irrigated hay meadows and moves through rolling rangeland to large groves of aspen and spruce. Traversed by 3 flowing creeks, the lush landscape is only surpassed by views to the south and east that are best described as world-renowned. This mountain jewel has recently undergone a massive transformation in which no expense has been spared in recreating Chimney Peak Ranch. This diamond of a classic mountain ranch is now infused with the finest comforts of home while focusing on western charm. From the completely remodeled main home, CP lodge, new pool house, remodeled ranch homes to the new ponds, manicured landscaping and chip sealed roads throughout the ranch, no detail has been overlooked. This truly is a turnkey ranch where you can walk in, kick your boots off and know it has all been taken care of.

Chimney Peak Ranch Home to the largest concentration of 14,000 foot peaks in North America and the rich mining history of Ouray and Telluride, the region also enjoys an exceptionally mild and sunny mountain climate and has become the resort destination of choice for skiers, tourists, and outdoor enthusiasts from around the world. Chimney Peak Ranch is a working cattle ranch producing its own brand of natural grain-fed beef. This unique combination of scenic beauty, climate, and culture makes a visit to Chimney Peak Ranch an event to be remembered for a lifetime. A modern day testament to the heritage of Colorado cattle ranching, Chimney Peak Ranch provides an enchanting environment for a family or corporate retreat. Wilderness, wildlife, and agriculture blend seamlessly in an area of extraordinary beauty. The ranch and adjacent forestland offer endless hours of relaxation.
