Originally homesteaded in 1882 by the Tanner family, our grandparents Earl and Ruth Beck moved here in 1932. And except for a few years when new owners added on and completely remodeled the old pioneer home in 2008, it has remained in our family ever since.

Sitting at an elevation of 6,000 feet, the temperatures in Indianola July through August are between 80-87 for the highs, with the lows between 43-49. Although the house stays at a comfortable temperature most of the day Spring through Fall, we have recently added a swamp cooler for the month or so when the afternoon temperatures in the house are uncomfortable.

Pets allowed with prior approval and additional $50 fee.

About Katie Peterson

This is the house our father grew up in before it was remodeled in 2008. We love our home away from home and hope you will too!

Katie Peterson purchased this farmhouse in 2015

Why Katie Peterson chose Fairview

Secluded and far off the beaten path, with all the amenities and comforts of home. Come escape, relax and enjoy time away from the stress and busyness of city life, where you can view the stars and Milky Way with no obstructions!

We are located not far from beautiful Skyline Drive and Fairview Canyon, scenic playgrounds popular all year round!

The water at the Ranch is fed from the natural springs up the mountain and is some of the best tasting water around.

It was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

It was the perfect house to accommodate our family. Lots of bathrooms - lots of granddaughters :) as well as plenty of bedrooms for everyone. The furnishings are high quality and the kitchen - well - they have thought of everything! We have never stayed in a vacation home that was better. The owners were great to work with. Absolutely an all around happy and enjoyable experience

It was perfect for my wedding!!

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful property to have my wedding at! The cabin is gorgeous and comes with all the supplies and utensils you could ever need. The power went out twice the morning of the wedding due to a near by accident, and one of the owners, Katie, did a great job of keeping me updated on what was going on. Overall everything ended up being perfect! Thanks for allowing us to stay there!!!!

It was the perfect setting for our girls camp. Everything was wonderful! Plenty of space, well stocked, very clean. They were great to correspond to all my questions beforehand! I would recommend it to everyone! Thank you, Beck's Ranch!

Great reunion place

This was such a great place for our family reunion. There was something for all ages, which made it an easy place to be. Space to play, and beautiful setting.

We all loved it.

Beautiful and comfortable for a large group

  • 4 of 5

It was a really nice place to stay with our large family. We had about 32 people there. There was plenty of space. The only negative for us was that there was no AC. The house stayed between 78-82 during the day (a bit too warm for us) and we did open the windows at night to cool things off, but then we were all FREEZING cold and had to get jackets and extra blankets. Even while watching tv or playing games in the great room at night we were just too cold, but kept the windows open so the house would be bearable the next day. Other than that, the place was wonderful!!

Owner's Response: Jennifer, we have recently realized there's a difference between a few people staying in the home, and a large group staying, going in and out, letting the hot are in. We just installed a swamp cooler. Although that's great news, hooray, my regret is that it wasn't there for your group! We hope you'll come stay with us again to enjoy the property and the cooler air!
