Old World Ranch Colorado: Quality at every turn marks the 176-acre Old World Ranch, nestled in the heart of the exclusive 19,000-acre Grand River Ranch near Kremmling, Colorado. Its lodge-like 3665 square foot beveled log home is simply spectacular in its own right, but add in the amazing shared amenities of two fishing camps (including 1.5 miles of tailwater), an equestrian center, a sporting clays course and a fabulous guest lodge and dining room, and the Old World Ranch becomes one of the Rockies’ most desirable recreational properties.
Only two hours northwest of Denver and less than an hour from Steamboat Springs, Grand River Ranch is near the top of the list as one of the finest shared amenity ranches in the West. Its 19,000 sprawling acres are divided among 19 landowners, allowing plenty of privacy amidst the forests and meadows of the ranch. Planning of the utmost care has retained the beauty and Western character of Grand River Ranch, while allowing its owners exclusive use of its wealth of amenities.
Serious anglers and horse lovers will find the Old World Ranch particularly attractive. One of Colorado’s finest small tailwaters, Muddy Creek below Wolford Mountain Reservoir, is available to all owners. Muddy Creek is loaded with hard-fighting, 14- to 24-inch rainbows and brown trout, and is fishable year-round. The ranch owns 1.5 miles of this fabulous tailwater, and it is sure to please even the most seasoned angler. Grand River Ranch also controls a large lake with additional fishing and boating opportunities. Casual fishing is even available just beyond the front door at Old World Ranch, in two creek-fed ponds. Additionally, public Gold Medal fishing on the Blue and Colorado Rivers is only minutes away.
Horse lovers will find the highest-quality facilities and almost endless riding opportunities on the ranch. The Old World Ranch itself includes a log and stone Old World style barn with three horse stalls located beneath 1260 square feet of comfortable living space. Grand River Ranch provides the shared amenity of a fully-staffed equestrian center, with an outdoor riding arena available to all owners. An extensive trail system allows days of riding on the ranch and also connects with BLM and National Forest land to the west.
The Old World Ranch itself is set picturesquely among aspen and conifer forest and meadows at elevations of 8600 to 9000 feet. The main home of 3665 square feet is a monument to the highest craftsmanship, with beveled log construction and stonework throughout. The Great Room, with its high ceiling, exposed beams and massive stone fireplace is reminiscent of classic Western lodges. The home includes three bedrooms, four bathrooms and a gourmet kitchen. Extensive stone porches on the exterior provide ample lounging area and open-air views of the surrounding mountains. Additional living space is available above the barn, offering abundant room for family and friends in this exclusive mountain retreat. For those really wanting to get away, a yurt stands a half-mile from the house and makes an ideal short day or overnight destination winter or summer.
Although owners will find a lifetime of recreational opportunities on Grand River Ranch itself, even more abound in the vicinity. For the hunter, large herds of mule deer and elk roam the adjacent Arapaho National Forest. In the winter, snowmobilers can access the extensive trail system near Rabbit Ears Pass, and downhill skiers need no introduction to Steamboat Springs, less than an hour away to the north, or Breckenridge, Keystone, Copper Mountain, and Winter Park ski resorts, only slightly further.
Grand River Ranch is easily accessible year-round. It is adjacent to US 40 only two miles west of Kremmling, and the ranch maintains its own roads winter and summer. Grand River Ranch is only two hours from Denver International Airport, and Kremmling boasts its own private jet-accessible airport.
Quality fills the air at Old World Ranch like the aroma of sage fills the air after a summer thunderstorm: quality construction, quality amenities, and a quality Western lifestyle that is second to none.
