Property description

At 10,500 feet, Oleo Guest Ranch offers rustic Colorado vacation cabin rentals. The mountain cabins are located in a remote part of southwest Colorado (between Creede and Lake City) and are surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery the Rocky Mountains have to offer. Each secluded mountain cabin offers privacy and breathtaking views with comfortable accommodations. The remote and secluded cabins are all built overlooking a beautiful valley. The ranch's water is drawn directly out of the mountain the cabins are built upon. Propane gas runs appliances, lights and heats water for the kitchens and bathrooms. Electricity is neither needed nor available, and we do enforce a no generator policy. Anything which needs to be plugged in will not be of use at Oleo. You will not miss the electricity. You are truly 'off the grid' at this ranch, and your mind and body will thank you for it. Don't worry, technology, electricity, restaurants and other conveniences are just a short beautiful drive over Slumgullion Pass into Lake City if need be. All of our mountain cabins are pet friendly as well.

Recreational activities at Oleo include miles and miles of scenic trails for mountain hiking/climbing, photography, fishing, or just relaxing. Moose and Elk are often seen and several kinds of hummingbirds are always around the many cabin feeders. The colorful wildflowers in summer, the wind blowing through the Aspens, and the spectacular fall foliage are nature at its best. Five stocked ponds and 1.5 miles of streams provide guests with private fishing, so beginners to avid fly fishermen will have ample opportunity to wet their lines. Peace and quiet is not something you have to seek out at Oleo... the wind blowing through the Aspens will be the only thing you'll hear while reading your book on the deck. There is zero light pollution at night so stargazing is one of the most incredible things you will ever witness. Also, look no further than Oleo to escape the heat of the summer. Even in the dog days of summer, the average temperature during the day is 65 and nights can drop below freezing. Day trip opportunities 'off the ranch' are abundant- anything from climbing one of the seven 14K mountains, fishing the Rio Grande river, hiking the Continental Divide Trail, renting a jeep in Lake City and driving over Engineer Pass, as well as something as simple as having an ice cream cone, sitting on a Lake City bench. There is so much to see and do in one of the most beautiful areas of the Rockies. Thank you for taking a look at Oleo. We hope to see you there soon enjoying the simple life!

Very remote area. Some incredible sites. 4 wheel drive areas and not a lot of people. During the fall some of the most amazing fall colors you will ever see. If you are looking to escape technology and reconnect with life you should come to Oleo.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1970

About: Oleo is owned by an MD, DVM and two small business owners. All the owners throughout the last 40 years have played a role in building the ranch. There are 7 cabins and each one took years to build. The ranch is only accessible during the months of June-October because of the deep snowfall, so the cabins had to be built during the summer. It is a very unique and amazing place and we hope to see you soon.

Why Lake City:
Technology free. If your life is tethered to a smart phone, laptop or any other device, than those masters of your life will no longer control you at Oleo. You will go through technology detox and in the process find what is important in life.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Nature has many benefits. There is no internet, tv, radio, or cell coverage so you truly get to detach. Bring a book because your mind will be so clear that you can read again.
