The Eagle Ridge Ranch is 4,900± deeded acres sweeping across the fertile Ohio Creek Valley only 8 miles north of the university town of Gunnison, Colorado. Operated for decades as a productive cattle and hay ranch, the property is now shared by 15 families who seek to steward the ranch for the maintenance of profitable agriculture, land conservation and enhancement of wildlife values. Situated at elevations of approximately 8000 to 9800 feet, the ranch encompasses rich hay meadow and cottonwood bottomland in its lower reaches, bordered by rolling sagebrush hills and groves of aspen and spruce at higher elevations. Unspoiled views throughout the ranch are far-reaching and include the remote West Elk Mountains to the west, the rugged Anthracite Range to the north and Flat Top and Red Mountains to the east. Amenities available to all owners in the Eagle Ridge Ranch are many and varied. Horse lovers will especially appreciate the Equestrian Center with its barn, stables and corrals. A lifetime of horseback riding is available on the ranch itself and the adjacent Gunnison National Forest. The ranch maintains 2600± acres as a common primitive area open to hunting, horseback riding and hiking. Two wilderness cabins are available in this area, available by reservation to property owners. Anglers will cherish the private trout fishing on the 3± miles of Ohio Creek that wind through the heart of ranch. This 20-foot wide stream is a major tributary of the Gunnison River, and holds fat brown and rainbow trout, some in the 16- to 20-inch class. Many carefully-engineered structures maximize prime trout habitat, and the stream is a particular delight for dry fly fishing. The Meadows at Eagle Ridge Ranch is a spectacular 6,681± square-foot home that is ideal for guests and family. This roomy, natural wood-floored home makes the most of its high-country setting. The centerpiece of this home is an open beam Great Room that is bathed in light and offers lovely views of the rugged Anthracite Range at the head of the valley. A large natural stone fireplace highlights one side of this room, and a spacious kitchen with granite counters, on the other. An inviting dining area easily accommodates 14 to 16 persons. A total of six bedrooms and six baths are distributed among the main home and attached guest house, making The Meadows an ideal location for large family gatherings or an abundance of guests. With many attractive seating areas, inside and out, The Meadows is custom made for relaxed socializing. A three-car garage is attached to the home, and a separate 1734± square foot horse barn/shop with workbench room includes well-lighted and insulated space for storage, cars, OHVs, tractors and room for two horse stalls. In short, the Meadows is ideally equipped as a luxurious headquarters for groups large and small to enjoy all that Eagle Ridge Ranch has to offer.
