Car: Necessary

We are nestled at the the foot of the mountains in an area of peace and quiet. The property is horse friendly for those that want to bring their horses and enjoy some mountain riding right out the back gate. We are near the town of South Fork and its advantages that draw tourists year after year. There are town events and festivals, restaurants, shops, rafting, ATV rentals, scenic train rides, fishing, golf, etc. and we are near Wolf Creek Ski area which is known for its excellent skiing in the winter. Snowmobiling and ice fishing are also winter activities.

Nearby is the town of Creede which has quaint shops and restaurants and museums as well as the mountain drive up Bachelor's Loop to see the vistas and the remains of the old mining industry there. Even the drive to Creede along the Silver Thread is a beautiful area.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Owners Greg and Suzy Thompson reside in Texas. A landscape architect Greg has tried to create a dude ranch atmosphere. We have found South Fork to be a hub for hiking, fishing, 4 wheeling, horseback riding and all mountain activities.

Why the Owner Chose South Fork, CO, USA:
We enjoy mountain settings and like fun places to ride horses. This setting is ideal for enjoying the beautiful scenery, the peace and quiet, seeing wildlife, and having more things to do than we can get around to! We have enjoyed every season here and love the town of South Fork.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
For horse owners we have a nice 6 stall barn, lodge pole corrals, and turn out pasture with riding out the back gate into the adjoining national forest. Those without horses can still enjoy the feel of the ranch and hiking the mountains on foot. There is an area for campfires. Wildlife come down the hills each evening and watching for that is exciting. There is plenty of room for kids to play. There are many other things to do in the area as well. see location
