This privately owned ranch is the perfect destination for your southwestern Colorado vacation. It offers over 400 acres of wooded wilderness along with 3 private ponds and .75 mile of the San Juan River winding through it.
Year-round fishing is available on the river, and many trophy fish have been caught and released here. The ponds, which are fed by the river, also contain many different kinds of fish, including rainbow and brown trout, and perch, to name a few.
If you prefer to play in the water, the ponds and river are available for tubing, kayaking and swimming in the summertime. Since there is a three-quarter mile-long stretch of the San Juan River running through it, you can ride on the river from one end of the ranch to the other.
Hiking or biking on the maintained roads brings solitary pleasure to the soul. Chances of spotting wildlife on the ranch are very high. Deer, elk and eagles call this place 'home' at various times of the year. Be sure to bring your camera so that you can capture a moment or two with these majestic creatures.
Wintertime at the MASK Ranch is absolutely stunning. Enjoy the serenity of the newly fallen snow with a peaceful walk along the roads, or break your own trail for cross-country skiing or snowshoeing. Snowmobiling is also allowed on the ranch, when there is an ample amount of snow. If you prefer downhill skiing, the Wolf Creek Ski Area is just a short 25 miles away, and it takes approximately 30-45 minutes to get there.
The main house is located only 2 miles from scenic Pagosa Springs and the world famous Hot Springs, specialty shops and various restaurants. This two-story house sleeps 12 people in 4 bedrooms. There are 3.5 bathrooms and a full kitchen. The lower floor offers a fireplace and wood stove in the living areas while the bedrooms are all located upstairs. Three decks grace the outside of the house, so that you can view the serene mountain scenery.
