Property description

In Montrose you will be at the gateway of numerous Colorado experiences. Skiing or hiking in Telluride, the mountains and hot springs in Ouray, and The Black Canyon of the Gunnison (second deepest canyon in America); all are within close proximity to Montrose and Trout River Ranch.

Trout River Ranch sits on twelve acres, with 1/4 mile of river frontage, situated less than 15 minutes from downtown Montrose and the Montrose Regional Airport.

Trout River Ranch is a two story 3800 square foot brick home with five bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. The comfortable decor is eclectic/rustic and reflects our other business as purveyors of unique and vintage furniture. The furnishings tend to change as we make new finds and sell older pieces so don't hesitate to ask if there is a piece you would like to take home. A well equipped kitchen, a game room with pool table, and a sun room will enhance your vacation experience. An attached two car garage is available for your winter comfort.

You can fish on the Uncompahgre River (50' out the back door), soak in the hot tub, play pool or watch TV in the spacious recreation room; or just relax on one of the four decks around the home.

A manicured, mature landscape with lots of trees and vegetation surrounds the home, extending to the banks of the Uncompaghre, a cottonwood forest runs along our 1/4 mile of river, and we have a large fire pit near the river's edge.

Hundreds of acres of public land are available for four-wheeling, dirt bike riding, and horseback adventures less than one mile from Trout River Ranch.

Wildlife, including deer, ducks, geese, blue heron, beaver, and bald eagles (Dec-Feb) can be seen on the property.

Planning a family gathering? We have working relationships with local caterers who can create a feast from Barbecue to Prime Rib and everything in between. Trout River Ranch Concierge Services are available to make your stay more enjoyable...and your vacation memorable.

For those with allergies please be aware The Ranch is also home to two resident cats and a dog. They, of course are not in the house during rental periods and our housekeeping crew is very fastidious; but we would not want this to be an issue for those who are very sensitive.

Whether your family is looking for simple exploration, deep adventure, or a visit to the past, you will find what you’re looking for in Montrose.

Talk about a perfect location! With the beguiling Black Canyon just to the east, the majestic San Juan Mountains to the south, the Uncompahgre Plateau to the west and Grand Mesa to the north, the city is literally surrounded with rough beauty and thrilling opportunities. Whether your family is here to step back in time to live in the Wild, Wild West for a relaxing few days, or to delve deeper into the mysteries of the countryside, you’re sure to find it all here.

The Montrose Regional Airport makes a trip from Denver International a simple skip and hop, which means you and the entire family can get here from anywhere in the world. Our location on the doorstep of Black Canyon National Park makes Montrose the perfect place to start exploring, and to come back to after a long and exciting day. In the summer this beautiful, lush national park offers endless opportunities for hiking, biking, rafting, kayaking and rock climbing (recommended for experts only). In the winter, the surrounding countryside is perfect for snowshoeing and cross country skiing, and some of the best downhill skiing in the world is less than 70 miles away at the Telluride Ski Area.

As you head east towards Gunnison, the Curecanti National Recreation Area opens up, and with it come three picturesque mountain reservoirs: the Blue Mesa Reservoir (at 96 miles perimeter, the largest man manmade body of water in Colorado), the Morrow Point Reservoir and the East Portal Reservoir. All three of these offer hundreds of family options, from water skiing and jet skiing to fishing, boating or swimming.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1979

About the owner: Dennis grew up in the Cleveland area of Ohio and attended college in Boulder, Colorado; after which he traveled around the Western U.S. in search of a place to plant his roots and raise a family. Jan grew up in Los Angeles and spent her summers in the Eastern Sierras. When she found Montrose she knew she was home again.

Why the Owner Chose Montrose:
Colorado always called to Dennis to return; which he eventually did when he discovered Montrose. In the late '70s-early '80s the Montrose area was beginnig to grow and he saw this community as the perfect setting to settle down, begin a small business, and start a family. Dennis found the property that is now Trout River Ranch and knew he was home. With the river flowing through the property, the cottonwoods, and the wildlife his children were able to grow up in a setting that can only described as Nirvana. Over the years his children raised horses, sheep, geese, ducks, chickens, goats, cats and dogs here. They played in the river, rode dirt bikes in the surrounding hills, and skiied on the slopes in nearby Telluride. Denny feels truly lucky to have spent 33 years in such an amazing and diverse country setting; he now feels it is time to share this very special home and property with people looking for a special vacation experience.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The river, the views, the privacy, and the proximity to town make this property the ideal central hub for a stay in Western Colorado.
