Property description

Located in the beautiful Tarryall Valley with scenic historic preservation sites along the winding picturesque byway, Lazy River Ranch is a working hay and cattle ranch. It is also a well-stocked premier fly fishing paradise. The river is leased with RMAC- if you wish to fish arrangements can be made at the time of booking for day passes. Passes cost $35/per person per day. If your group is more than 4 or you wish to play in the river and tube the block of the river is $140/day. 24' rainbow trout are not uncommon nor is the sighting of large elk, deer and big horn sheep. The elk and deer come down to the river in late evening or early morning to drink and a skillful hunter will even see wild turkey and sage grouse. At 8,800 to 9,000', the 160 acre ranch backs to the Lost Creek Wilderness and offers spectacular views from hiking trails that can take you up to 12,000'. The ranch house, completed late summer of 2008, is beloved by the owners for its location and beauty.

The river is strictly fly fishing, catch and release (additional fee passes required) on 1¼ miles of stream bordered by some willows winding through irrigated hay meadows in a gently rolling valley bottom. You will hear coyotes and owls at night as you star gaze at a sky where you will clearly see the Milky Way and more stars than you knew existed. There is an outdoor fireplace to keep you warm and for roasting marshmallows. After just a day or two you will feel like you have finally gotten that long-needed rest. As your cares melt away you will see the world in a whole new light - come visit and discover!

It's an easy 85 mile drive South West of Denver or 60 miles North West of Colorado Springs. Ask for directions when you make your reservation.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1982

About: The owner is a geologist who enjoys all the rock formations in the area. The ranch was purchased as a retreat from a work life of international travel and long hours. It has been a life saver. The picture, taken circa 2007 is of owner's daughter and friend.

Why Tarryall:
We bought property in this location because it is close enough to Denver to go for a short weekend and yet it is secluded enough that you really feel you have gotten away. It is a wonder site for family reunions, weddings and small company retreats.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have always enjoyed the fishing and hunting - both are first class. We have gone many years without buying beef. Our children have enjoyed years of fun in the outdoors with their friends. We used to give them each a dollar and they would walk a mile or so to the country store to buy candy. That kept them busy and out of our hair! They also spent hours playing in the river. Now they come and bring their children and teach them the same love of the outdoors that they have.
