Lake George house description

Puma Hills River Ranch is a 3rd generation working hay ranch surrounding 2.4 miles of the Tarryall River that meanders along the peaceful Tarryall Valley. The ranch is peaceful and secluded, yet with many services and adventures just minutes away. The guest house is nestled in the Puma Hills bordered by Pike National Forest overlooking the Tarryall River. From the picture window is a beautiful view of the river, our hay meadows and the mountains beyond.

Our guests can enjoy private fly fishing on the Tarryall River, hiking and biking and scenic views from every direction. There is a horseshoe pit and a campfire ring for warming your toes by the fire and viewing the endless array of stars. The guest house is clean, fully equipped and easily accessible.

In the evenings, guests like to relax on the patio with a refreshing drink while watching the river flow. On occasion a herd of elk or mule deer and a small group of big horn sheep will graze in the meadows below. Eagles, blue heron and many other birds hunt, feed or raise their young in the riparian areas, and some evenings the coyotes will sing to each other.

Bring your horse and ride the beautiful trails, bring your family for an unforgettable vacation or spend your honeymoon under the stars! Come and experience YOUR OWN PRIVATE PARADISE!


Puma Hills River Ranch is located on paved County Rd. 77. Just 7 miles northwest of Lake George, 50 miles northwest of Colorado Springs and 85 miles west of Denver.

If your interested in hunting, we offer self-guided hunting packages in areas 501, 500 and 50.

                  Year Purchased: 1960

                  About the owner: My grandparents bought this ranch in 1960. As a young boy, I worked on the ranch, fished the river and explored the mountains beyond. Through the years I have kept the ranch alive, continuing to enjoy and protect the land. A few years ago my wife and I decided to open the ranch to travelers and share this unique and beautiful land with others. We hope you enjoy this peaceful place as much as we do!

                  Why the Owner Chose Lake George:
                  The serenity and peacefulness of the ranch stays with you, and now we want to share this amazing place with family, friends and fellow travelers.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Puma Hills River Ranch offers a private vacation experience, relaxing and quiet with spacious views of the river, our hay meadows and Pike National Forest. Enjoy 2.4 miles of the Tarryall River all to yourself! Whether you like fishing, hiking, biking or simply relaxing we are the place!
