The Wild Bunch River Ranch, LLC is a Colorado sportsperson's playground! We are ideally situated along a PRIVATE 1/2 mile stretch of the UNCOMPAHGRE RIVER, which is fishable year-round! We also feature 2 private ponds; a 3.2 acre and a 1 acre STOCKED FISHING POND, along with a vast array of spectacular wildlife! We are ideally situated at the hub of some of the best activities in southwest Colorado.
Guests at the Wild Bunch River Ranch, LLC will personally enjoy the rustic elegance of their own private WESTERN SALOON AND BUNKHOUSE. Located pond-side and built in 2005, your unique accommodations were designed in the true spirit of the wild, wild, west with all the modern day comforts of home; yet staying here one senses that the old west has been kept alive and well!
The Floor Plan features a COWBOY SALOON and GAME HALL on the first level, which feels as authentic and relaxed as an old wrangler hanging out around the bar! The small, yet fully functional Kitchen features a full-size Dishwasher, a custom-designed Copper Prep Sink, a freestanding compact 4-burner Gas Range with Oven, a small Microwave Oven, an under-counter Bar Refrigerator w/Freezer, a Butler's Pantry with an additional small Refrigerator/Freezer, along with a much-desired 50 lb Automatic Ice Maker.
To further capture the eye and imagination of an era gone by, the WESTERN VICTORIAN DECOR is embellished with scarlet painted walls, black and gold velvet drapery and authentic brothel tokens permanently encased within the bar countertops. The call of the wild would not be complete without the COVERED FRONT PORCH with rocking chairs showcasing the vast variety of wildlife. And last but not least, a serene 3.2 acre STOCKED FISHING POND, which is just a cast away from your front porch!
After a ride on the PADDLE BOAT or the TANDEM KAYAK, guests might want to enjoy our SAND BEACH, visit our curious ALPACAS, walk along the various pathways throughout our 40-ACRE RANCH or hang out along the UNCOMPAHGRE RIVER waving at the white water rafters going by! During the winter months, guests will enjoy our ranch acreage for cross-country skiing and snow-shoeing. One of our many unique features is the proximity of the Uncompahgre River offering some of the finest YEAR-ROUND TROUT FISHING anywhere!
Back inside your lodging, guests will want to play a friendly game of AIR HOCKEY, DARTS, CHECKERS on our custom-designed checker table, or watch a show on the BIG-SCREEN TELEVISION.
The upstairs is just as playful with a fully-operational 'INDOOR-OUTHOUSE,' and select antique furniture recalls the history of a VICTORIAN PARLOR! Here you will also find a Book Table, along with the Sleeping Quarters, which consist of 4 Semi-Private Chambers, each with distinguishing western characteristics, and each featuring a Queen-Sized Bed, Alarm/Clock Radio, Fan, Mirror, and custom-built oversized pull-out drawers. If an additional bed is needed, the downstairs Game Hall offers a comfortable pull-out queen-sized sofa bed.
With all the RIVERS, LAKES, HOT SPRINGS, GOLF COURSES, MOUNTAINS, MESAS, VALLEYS and CANYONS to explore in and around our region, it's no wonder the area begs guests to be outside! Travelers visiting TELLURIDE, SILVERTON, OURAY and RIDGWAY will enjoy our close driving proximity to these top destinations, but also enjoy coming back to the lower elevation of Montrose.
So when the wilds of the west become irresistible and you are ready to rough it in style, consider a place that pays homage to the past and celebrates all the wilds of nature. Come to the Wild Bunch River Ranch, where guests have a sense of the great outdoors without having to pick pine needles from their soap!
