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

Beautiful location! A good central location for daily activities.
We have stayed at many VRBO properties and this is by far the cleanest I have seen. Well stocked with all essentials. More than enough dishes, eating utensils, pots & pans, etc. Ross and Nancy were so welcoming that we felt like a part of their family. We spent a lot of time on the front porch enjoying the view. It’s possible we will return to the area just to stay at Kirkham Ranch. Can you tell we loved it?
We are so glad that your Group enjoyed their stay at the Ranch! We hope that you will make this a yearly destination. Thanks for the remarks that you wrote in our Guest Book.
Clean house and very well stocked. Close to the activities that our family enjoys--hiking, fishing the Grand Mesa Lakes, floating the Gunnison, fabric shopping in Delta,eating fresh fruit and local honeys, picnicking at Ouray. Home was far enough off the main highway to allow the grand kids to play outside and not worry about traffic. PEACE AND QUIET and beautiful views. Looking forward to our next trip.
Thank you for the remarks that you wrote in our guest book. We are also looking forward to you next visit. Thanks again for the tomatoes, limes and zucchini.
Awesome place to stay
This house is a great place to stay off the beaten path. The setting is beautiful. The owners were easy and helpful. We forgot our pillows and they called us before we got to the main road to let us know. The house is large and has all the comforts of home. We will definitely keep this option in mind for our future visits to the area.
Thank you for the review. We were glad that our home was available for your Family at such a difficult time.
Wonderful place to stay
Ross and Nancy are great, they really make you feel at home.
Glad that you were able to come back! Looking forward to your next visit with all the Family!
Lovely country home, very clean, neat and comfortable for all ages!
There were 9 of our family members vacationing together... ages 2,3,8 and 6 adults. Everyone felt at home, lots of room for the little ones to run around. Couldn't have asked for better hosts than Ross and Nancy. Feel like they are a part of our family now. Definitely plan to visit again.
We really enjoyed your Family and look forward to your next visit! Ross and Nancy
