About Ross and Nancy Kirkham

I guess I've been in love with the West for as long as I can remember. I grew up with stories of my Father's childhood on ranches in the Roaring Fork Valley of Western Colorado, before tractors came to that country. My Mother's Father was a book and record collector and had a wonderful collection of Western History and Art Literature.

In the last 36 years I've worked as a Ranch Hand, Range Rider, Horse Shoer, House Carpenter, Dude Wrangler, Hunting Guide and last but not least a Camp Cook. I've been doing pencil and pen drawings for most of that time. I've also, been playing guitar and writing songs for about 25 years now, which still surprises me?

My wife, Nancy and I live on the ranch, we raise hay, Skipper W Quarter Horses and Hell once in a while!

Come and see us! Ross

Why Ross and Nancy Kirkham chose Orchard City

Privacy with views of Grand Mesa, quiet and peaceful. Watch the horses graze in the pasture. Beautiful sunsets against the dobie hills.

What makes this house unique

Bring your horse and ride on Grand Mesa or ride in our arena, pens available. Great place to stay when hauling horses.

Beautiful place

Our stay was wonderful. The home was immaculate. Ross and Nancy could not have been friendlier or more helpful. We will consider this place again for another visit. Very quiet and beautiful. Thank you!

Clean, Comfortable and Spacious

  • 5 of 5

This property is a great rental. It is very clean and comfortable. The rooms are very spacious. We were only here for one night, but wished we had time to stay longer. Nancy was a very gracious hostess.

The town of Cedaredge is very friendly. We enjoyed the Applefest in October.

Charm/Peace/Quiet /Beauty

  • 5 of 5

Truly amazing setting and hosts, this is my third stay and I'm already planning to return.

Home is spotless,well supplied,plenty of room and privacy with spectacular views. I felt no need to lock any door ,left keys in car,safe area and quiet without road noise or city lights,yet so close to wonderful trails on Grand Mesa.

The hosts are accommodating in every way,also bright and artistic,a pleasure to visit with them.

The sweet dog is well behaved,quiet and adorable,and the beautiful horses great for photography!

Thank you for allowing me to stay and all the extras you provided.

Great house on solitary ranch

  • 5 of 5

This house can accommodate well beyond our 2 couple getaway but it was perfect for us as a base to play golf and sight see in the area. Nice and quiet with plenty of bedrooms/baths and living area for either privacy or gatherings. Had everything we needed to a 3 day stay for fixing meals etc. Just bring the food. The cost of course is so good we could not pass it up even though it seemed like more than we needed but we will go back without hesitation on our next trip to the area and stay a little longer to take in some fishing, hiking and bike riding as well as golf. Owners live on sight next door and are great hosts.
