Encompassing a diverse mountain landscape flanking the Colorado River, this scenic 1,512 ranch offers outstanding hunting and fishing in a secluded setting, complemented by a comfortable five-bedroom log and stone home with two guest cabins, and convenient location only 40 minutes from Winter Park and two hours from Denver. Marietta Creek Ranch benefits from a private end-of-the-road locale that is surrounded on three sides by over 3,300 acres of BLM with limited public access. Larger blocks of BLM and Arapaho National Forest are within a mile of the ranch to the north and south. Despite its seclusion, however, the ranch is definitely not remote. Situated in Grand County between Granby and Hot Sulphur Springs, services, and supplies such as groceries and fuel are within 10 minutes of the property. Kremmling and its jet-capable airport are only 20 minutes away. Some of Colorado’s best skiing and mountain resorts are close by as well – Winter Park Resort and Grand Lake are only 40 minutes, and the Steamboat and Summit County ski resorts are less than 90 minutes. Denver and Denver International Airport are less than two hours. Marietta Creek Ranch features a diverse mountain landscape with prime habitat for mule deer, elk, moose, black bear, and bald eagles. From the banks of the Colorado River at just under 7,800 feet in elevation, the ranch rises up over 1,400 feet to 9,200 feet at the highest elevation. Varied vegetation consisting of aspen groves, mixed conifers, willowed creek bottoms with beaver ponds, and sage hillsides results in excellent wildlife habitat that attracts game from surrounding public lands. Marietta Creek drains the upper half of the ranch, creating a large basin with plenty of water and the perfect combination of timbered north-facing bedding slopes and open south-facing feeding zones. A ridgeline in the center of the ranch is strategically located to create a number of great glassing points that can be accessed without detection.
