The Yampa River Runs Through It


50 Plus Acres. Imagine what you could do on this ranch on the banks of the Yampa River. Water, and more water; includes a well, cistern, spring, a reservoir that fills up in the springtime, and an additional hand dug well. Fenced and cross fenced with equestrian barns for your next sweet escape! Set up perfect for a 4-H family, horse property, or farm. You could enjoy hunting, fishing, or the sanctuary of your choosing! The 3 stall barn includes a foaling stall and a tack room, and it can be reconfigured. Plus there are 5 three-sided shelters with runs. In addition there is a shop, garage, and other buildings. Several outdoor water hydrants and hay lofts make chores easy. Truly ideal for the outdoors lover who wants room, partakes in hunting, fishing, rafting, paddle boarding; and enjoys the natural scenery of bald eagles in their nests, mule deer, pronghorn, and waterfowl out your back door. The 4 bed, 1.5 bath historic rustic ranch house includes a walkway off the primary bedroom to a gazebo with a hot tub. Like simple living? There is a cook stove, a coal stove, a garden, and a root cellar. The Town of Hayden is just two miles east. Teddy Roosevelt even signed the original deed, this is truly an experience not to miss!

Land- 50.56 acres at 6400 feet elevation. Approximately 20 acres of sub irrigated pasture or hay ground with approximately 25 acres of dryland pasture. Plus 1/4 mile of both sides of the Yampa River.

Fishing- Get “bows on the end of your line”, rainbow trout, that is. The Yampa is known as one of Colorado’s best rainbow trout streams. You can also catch brown trout, pike or smallmouth out of your own private river. Like to float the river? You can launch your boat off your land, and enjoy an average 5-6 hour float to the Dorsey boat ramp. The Yampa is also one of the few rivers in Colorado that is home to four endangered fish.

Hunting- Waterfowl hunting can be done from your own blind, along with other small game hunting, and the higher 25 acres can be good for a deer, antelope, or a grouse. Wildlife you can view includes river otters, blue herons, sandhill cranes, geese, ducks, and more.
