Lovely Mountain Setting

  • 5 of 5

Cougar Canyon Ranch is the ideal mountain getaway. My family and I loved spending time on the secluded property. The kitchen has all the gadgets that you could need. It would really be a great place to have a wedding with it's setting. Highly recommend this house and the rustic bunkhouse. We have stayed in many rental homes in the South Fork area and this is our favorite.

Great Place!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was awesome. This was our second time in two years. We took 15 teenagers and they cannot wait to go back. Will try to stay there again this year. The place looks new and is well kept up. The barn is great for meetings, classes, and movies.

About The Owner

Owners Greg and Suzy Thompson reside in Texas. As a landscape architect, Greg has create a rustic ranch atmosphere tucked into the Colorado mountains. We have found South Fork, Colorado to be the perfect hub for skiing, hiking, fishing, exploring on ATVs, horseback riding and every other mountain activity you can think of.

Enjoy this mountain get away as much as we do, cherishing sweet time with loved ones.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose South Fork

This setting nestled in the mountains is ideal for enjoying the beautiful scenery, peace and quiet, seeing wildlife. We have enjoyed every season here and love the town of South Fork.

What makes this house unique

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

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.
