Owner info

About the owner: 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 the Owner Chose Orchard City, CO, USA:
Privacy with views of Grand Mesa, quiet and peaceful. Watch the horses graze in the pasture. Beautiful sunsets against the dobie hills.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Bring your horse and ride on Grand Mesa or ride in our arena, pens available. Great place to stay when hauling horses.
