Trull Creek Ranch
#CO427177
Routt, 
1,140.00 acres
Location, Location, Location! When thinking of the perfect ranch, the 1,100+ acre Trull Creek Ranch is everything you have dreamed of and more in a legacy property. Just 10 minutes to Downtown Steamboat Springs and its famous ski resort, this offering is very private and boasts everything you would want in a World Class property!The backdrop to this amazing ranch is Sleeping Giant Mountain, a historic landmark just west of the Elk River Valley. The centerpiece of the ranch is a gorgeous 15,000 +/- square foot custom home. This home is located in its very own private valley with big views of Steamboat Springs ski area and the surrounding mountains. This exquisite home has everything the very discerning buyer would expect. The floorplan is the best I have ever seen, and it showcases big views of Sleeping Giant mountain and Steamboat Ski Area throughout the home. Internal views of the ranch offer lush hay meadows and beautiful vistas with aspen and oak brush in all directions. This "end-of-the-road" estate is exceedingly rare this close to town. To find this type of privacy, luxury, and seclusion with river so close to a world class destination is virtually unheard of, a once in a lifetime opportunity. The home was designed with entertaining and time with family in mind. The details of this custom home are unprecedented, and it truly offers all the amenities of your own private resort. The indoor pool is fitted with a diving board and a gradual shallow end for children. The pool area is very well equipped with showers, a hot tub, and many amenities you would find in the best resorts. The kitchen is very well appointed with a custom island and opens to a beautiful great room with an enormous rock fireplace. So "Colorado", and so well done, you will want to spend all your time there. Whether it is enjoying the private balconies off each suite or your morning coffee on the flagstone patio overlooking the beautifully landscaped grounds, there is plenty of room to take in that clean mountain air! Thehome has 7 unique well-planned suites and 7.5 baths all decorated with the most amazing touches. Just behind the main home in the valley is the large barn with indoor arena and stalls. There are two caretaker homes on the front of the property adjoining the main road and the river.The ranch is very well watered with good hay production for cattle and wildlife, and the current owners have a cattle and hay lease in place with a local rancher. If enjoying time in the outdoors is important, this ranch truly has it all. With Miles and miles of improved horse and mountain bike trails along with the indoor riding arena; the current owners enjoy a variety of outdoor activities, such as mountain biking, horseback riding, hiking, fishing for trout on the river and skiing their own private valleys and chutes to name a few. On any occasion expect to see abundant wildlife including elk, mule deer, antelope, black bear, sharp-tailed grouse, blue grouse, and varmints. Rugged and refined this ranch has great access to downtown Steamboat Springs and fine dining just minutes from all this enjoyment!The waters of the Elk River are stunningly beautiful and known for their tremendous numbers and quality of fish. Over a third of a mile of river have been enhanced for maximum habitat and the current owners practice catch and release fishing. The fishing in this stretch of the Elk River is outstanding. The ranch is bordered upstream by a shared amenity ranch that regularly stocks good size fish to augment the numbers. Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, Brook Trout and the occasional Cutbow inhabit this section of the Elk River. The Elk River is a "freestone" river that is 34.2 miles beginning in Northwest Colorado. It flows from a confluence of the North Fork Elk River and Middle Fork Elk River in Routt National Forest north of Steamboat Springs to a confluence on the Yampa River.Located on the edge of the two largest elk herds in Colorado, the White River herd and the Snake River herd hold huge numbers giving the ranch plenty of resident animals as well as migratory elk moving through the property all season long. Elk and deer hunting are excellent on the ranch with good numbers of mule deer and great numbers of elk. Deer permits are a draw in all parts of Colorado while the elk hunting is in an over-the-counter unit for Archery, 2nd, and 3rd seasons. Elk are very prevalent on the ranch and for the right owner the ranch could produce some genuinely nice animals with good success rates. Mule deer inhabit the ranch and are also trophy quality. Good numbers of both would make for nice hunting opportunities in the fall months. Varmints and upland game also inhabit the ranch in good numbers and would provide the hunting enthusiast good opportunities outside of big game hunting. The ranch will qualify for one regular mule deer landowner application as well as one private land only application. Additionally, the ranch has been home to numerous black bears of multiple color phases as well as the occasional moose. The moose populations continue to rise in the area surrounding Steamboat Springs.For the upland hunter or the serious bird watcher, the Columbian Sharp-tail Grouse population on the ranch has historically been exceptionally good and will produce many fantastic days in the field. The large Gamble Oak/Aspen and sagebrush ridges offer prime habitat and excellent lek sites. The booming of the leks in the springtime is one of the most amazing experiences in the outdoors. Bald Eagles, Sandhill Cranes and Blue Herons also inhabit the property. Duck hunting can be excellent for a short season prior to winter weather.The ranch is just 25 minutes from jet service at Yampa Valley Regional Airport and 5 minutes from the smaller Steamboat airport that can handle local and small jets. From mid-December to first of April, there are direct flights on Alaska Airlines, American, Delta, JetBlue, and United Airlines. United Airlines offers direct flights between Steamboat/Hayden and Denver year-round. Jet It and other shared private air service companies also fly into the local airports.The historic town of Trull, once a bustling stagecoach stop with boarding house, livery and post office and was settled in 1881 on the ranch property. It had the first telephone in Routt County, and was up against Steamboat Springs for county seat. This kind of history truly evokes the spirit of the old west! This history with photographs of the town of Trull can be found on YouTube and in the local Museum.The town of Steamboat Springs is located at 6,732 ft in elevation in Colorados Yampa Valley. It is home to the Howelsen Hill ski area and the Steamboat Ski Resort. Not only is Steamboat known for its legendary skiing & snowboarding, but the nearby hot springs are therapeutic in nature, especially after a long day on the slopes. Located near the city center, the long-standing Old Town Hot Springs is equipped with swimming, soaking pools, and water slides. This experience is worthwhile and fun for all ages.This legacy ranch offers all the amenities one could want in a world class property. It is the kind of property that only comes available once in a generation. To summarize, it is simply the best.

ABOUT

There is something extraordinary about the American West. Told in books, television and movies, its stories have captivated our imaginations for decades. The beloved Western adventures have always depicted passion, bigger-than-life dreams and above all, true grit.

With those characteristics mind, the Weinreis family molded the property into a world-class hidden gem in the Black Hills of Wyoming. It is western elegance, defined.

This property is a slice of paradise, characterized by wide valleys surrounded by pine-covered slopes and capped by sandstone bedrock, which provides panoramic views as far as the eye can see.

The design, permitting, planning, zoning, wells, roads and initial construction are all completed to fulfill the Weinreis vision of implementing a luxurious, one-of-a-kind private or semi-private golf course amongst the stunning natural features of Wyoming.

Other:

Family
The Weinreis Brothers are third generation cattle ranchers with an extensive agri-business conglomerate, which provides deep ties to the region. Since 1976, the seven brothers have owned and operated a multi-enterprise family business, the Weinreis Brothers Partnership.

Today, the partnership operates in five states and is comprised of interests in farming, ranching, cattle feeding, land development and commercial hunting operations.

Vision
The Weinreis family originally visited the land that is now the property in 1999 and instantly fell in love with the unspoiled beauty and native geological landscapes. They closed on the property within a couple months after first seeing it. Soon thereafter, with a shared passion for golf, they realized the unique topographies amongst the top of the towering bedrock would provide a magnificent setting for an inimitable golf course layout. This is where the dream was born and the Weinreis brothers set their sights on developing a PGA style golf course to one day become the focal feature of the property.

In 2008, the Weinreis Brothers assembled a group of well-respected associates with extensive expertise in land planning, site engineering, architecture, golf course design, owner and guest hospitality, interior design and estate law.

After two years of strategic background planning, the group began meeting with the appropriate city, county and state officials to secure the necessary permits for land use, zoning, roads and water and waste disposal. With all permits in place, work began in the spring of 2011 on road construction and well drilling, which were successfully completed in the summer of 2012.

In late 2015, the demanding and fluctuating nature of the cattle industry, the core business operations of the family subsequently required the sole attention of the brothers, placing their dream of the completed golf course and clubhouse on hold. However, with a significant portion of the heavy lifting already executed, their desire to finish what they started still burns bright. So much so that the Weinreis Brothers are willing to remain involved as a limited partner, should that appeal to the next owner or group of owners.

Land
The property is comprised of distinctive land. Understanding and respect are commanded as the land speaks of nature and of history; it speaks of struggle and triumph. Each element influences how we see the land, how we live with it and how we use it. Understanding reveals the gift this land can offer. Respect preserves that gift for generations to come. Improvement provides use and joy for people far and wide. Combined, they form the spirit of the property.

The physical features that compose the property include the bedrock rim, which generally ranges from 5,356 to 5,450 high. The soil resulting from this underlying geology is comprised of Lakota, Sundance and Gypsum Spring formations. Specifically, the site is located along both sides of the Salt Creek drainage, flanked with rolling hills, hidden meadows and dramatic rim rock ledges.

The elevation change over the entire property is approximately 950, with the highest point at 5,659 along the primary ridgeline. This ridgeline runs alongside the eastern portion of the property, where the rolling hillside offers excellent views in all directions, particularly southward towards the Salt Creek and Beaver Creek corridors. The land was historically used as cattle and horse range with hay production and logging.

Golf Course Design
Designated for a setting over 1,000 feet above the valley, the Hills & Forrest championship course is expected to garner a top 100 rating from discerning golfers and experts upon completion.

Mindful of preserving the high meadows, pine forests and cliff facings, Arthur Hills and Steve Forrest were respectful of the natural landscape in their design. Weaving along the edges of the plateau, its fairways and greens reveal amazing views, while the absence of residences ensures those fortunate enough to play it that they enjoy golf in its purest form.

Landscapes Unlimited, which boasts a portfolio of nearly 1,800 golf centric construction, development, management and irrigation projects worldwide has performed multiple site visits to the property and has completed a conceptual start-up and operations program for the completion, maintenance and management of the course.

Amenities/Improvements
Some of the existing amenities include:
Hills & Forrest-designed eighteen-hole, championship-quality golf course; partially-completed, cleared for the balance of construction
Fully irrigated golf practice range
Olympic-style clay trap shooting park
Two-acre trout lake with running water tributary
2.2 miles of roads designed and graded to scale
600+ GPM water well
Two fully furnished 4,000 SQFT smart homes (not included in the list price)

Wildlife

Red Reflet Ranch
#WY720815
Washakie, 
6,599.00 acres
Located six miles southeast of Ten Sleep, the Red Reflet Ranch can only be described as one of the most complete diversified recreational ranches that we have had the honor of representing. It operates on over 28,500 acres, which consist of a series of large deeded tracts (nearly 6,600 acres) with critical resources tied together with thousands of acres of public lands on which the ranch has grazing privileges. The lower end of the ranch adjacent to the paved highway from Ten Sleep contains the 5,000 foot paved and lighted airstrip, fuel depot, hangar and two houses for staff or pilots. The heart of the ranch includes the lodge and guest facilities, 580 acres of productive irrigated meadows, and a complete set of operating improvements and staff housing to support both a 500 animal unit cattle operation and a highly successful and profitable guest ranch. The ranch also includes stables and an indoor arena that support both the guest ranch and an equine training operation. The ranch rises from there to the very top of the Bighorn Mountains - an elevation change of approximately 3,800 feet. The ranch owns thousands of acres of deeded lands on top of the mountains that support summer grazing for the cattle operation as well as a location for a comfortable off the grid cabin for the use of the ranch guests. While the current owners do not offer hunting as part of the guest ranch experience, these lands offer extensive private hunting opportunities for deer and elk for the current owner and their friends. In summary Red Reflet currently offers a viable livestock operation and a profitable guest ranch business. It is important to note, however, that the facilities were designed to equally accommodate a family or corporate retreat as they include multiple free-standing homes and a magnificent lodge with an impressive owners suite on the top floor.

Harmel&#039;s Resort on the Taylor River
#CO305457
Gunnison, 
43.00 acres
LOCATIONHarmels Taylor River Resort is located seven miles from Almont, Colorado in the highly coveted Taylor River Valley at the confluence of Spring Creek and the Taylor River. From the resort, Gunnison is located 16-miles south and the ever-popular ski resort town of Crested Butte is about 16-miles to the north (via Jacks Cabin Cutoff and State Highway 135). From the Front Range population centers of metro-Denver and Colorado Springs, the resort is within an approximate 3.0-hour drive. Harmels is located within the heart of the 1.7 million-acre Gunnison National Forest, which directly borders the resort on the east. The surrounding area contains some of the most spectacular scenery and recreational amenities Colorado has to offer with the popularity of the Taylor River Valley continuing to grow given the seemingly endless recreational opportunities.THE RESORTThe footprint of the resort portion of the larger property totals for approximately 43-acres (+/-). Harmels has been operated by the same family since 1958 and maintains a generational following of repeat guests. The resort consists of 37 rustic, fully furnished rental cabins/units that have been placed either on, or within, walking distance of the Taylor River. The cabins have historically accommodated combined occupancy of 150 guests. In addition, employee housing is fully contained on-site. The guest recreation room is located between the restaurant and reservation counter and provides wi-fi accessibility, billiards, games, business center and TV gathering area. Harmels Restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner (menu or buffet) with an adjoining full-service saloon. Restaurant demand is serviced by a fully appointed commercial kitchen that includes walk-in freezer/coolers. An expansive deck with large stone fireplace extending just above the Taylor River at the rear of the restaurant provides the ideal outdoor dining and gathering experience. The general store and fly shop supply anglers with tackle, basic food and drink provisions and provides daily updates on fishing conditions. The resort accommodates weddings, family reunions and other group-style gatherings. From the resort, there is nearby access to motorcycle, ATV, mountain biking/hiking trails, river rafting and rock-climbing excursions. For big game hunters, Colorado GMU 55 is also known for its Mule Deer, Elk and Moose hunting.TAYLOR RIVERThe Taylor River originates high-up in the Elk Mountains just outside of the Maroon Bells Wilderness and flows along the west side of the Collegiate Peaks before entering Taylor Park Reservoir. Taylor Park Dam, located at the south end of the reservoir, serves as the start of the tailwaters. The stretch extending below the dam and continuing all the way to the confluence with the Gunnison River provides anglers some of the best trout waters available. According to the owner, the approximate 1.5-mile stretch (both banks) of the Taylor flowing through the resort had previously received a 16x Gold Medal rating. The Harmels Fishery is also fed by Spring Creek, which flows down from the mountains to the north of the resort.Whitewater rafting and kayaking are also popular activities on the Taylor River. The 2,040-acre Taylor Park Reservoir just to the north offers the lake angler the chance of catching big Lake/Mackinaw, Brown, Rainbow and Cutbow Trout along with Kokanee Salmon and Northern Pike. Boat access is available at the Taylor Park marina.ADDITIONAL ACREAGEThere are (2) additional parcels available for purchase (in addition to the estimated acreage of the resort):North Pasture Parcel: Historically utilized as horse pasture for the horseback riding operation of the resort, this parcel contains (2) trout stocked ponds and live water creeks/irrigation ditches flowing through its boundaries. This approximate 48-acre tract (subject to survey) offers a multitude of building possibilities ranging from an estate home site to higher density residential housing, possible RV Park, etc. The North Pasture Parcel is separately priced from the resort and offered at $3,000,000.Beaver Creek Parcel: The Beaver Creek parcel consists of approximately 52-acres (subject to survey) and directly abuts Gunnison National Forest. This parcel provides direct access to Gunnison National Forest lands via special use permit held by the ownership (transferrable). Beaver Creek is an alpine stream that flows down from the Fossil Ridge Wilderness area to the Taylor River, just below the deeded area of the resort. Deeded roadway access is provided through the designated resort parcel. This tract offers potential residential building sites and would provide prominent views to the Taylor Park Valley spanning to the west. Offered at $1,000,000.SUMMARYThe recent completion of paving to Cottonwood Pass has significantly improved accessibility to the Taylor Park area as it serves as the most direct access route from the Colorado Front Range population centers. The historic operating season of the resort has generally spanned from May 15 thru September 30. Winterization of the cabins and infrastructure would further allow a new owner the ability to operate on an annual basis in capitalizing on winter recreation and over-flow skier demand from Crested Butte. The existing footprint of the resort designated area (subject to survey) may also be conducive to the addition of more cabins and/or conversion to longer term, VRBO oriented stays. All owned water and mineral rights will convey, and the property is not encumbered by conservation easement. All merchandise/business inventories and furniture, fixtures and equipment are included. Financial documentation of the resort operation can be provided upon the signing of a non-disclosure agreement.Please contact Brent Hedrick for additional information or to arrange for a qualified, private showing.
