Rogers Mountain Ranch Summary
In the spring of 1870, six years before Colorado earned its statehood, Joseph Rogers and his brother, products of Maine & Southeastern Canada, drove 300 head of cattle to the South Park range four miles West of the town of Howbart set up camp and founded their ranch which grew to over 12,000 acres.
Today, at the foot of hulking Thirtyninemile Mountain, which is the southern sentinel to the entirety of South Park, rests the ranch born from the early effort of those western pioneers. Approximately two hours from Colorado’s two most populous cities and their international airports, the ranch consists of approximately 2,450 acres. Two hours and fifteen minutes from Denver, one hour and thirty minutes from Colorado Springs and about an hour to the world class ski resort of and ski town of Breckenridge the ranch is very well located for those seeking twelve months of adventure. The ranch is offered in three configurations: Rogers Mountain Ranch (“RMR”) at approximately 1,250 acres, Sims Creek Ranch at approximately 1,200 acres and combined at approximately 2,450 acres. The two ranches are nearly contiguous with a connection through BLM land. This listing will focus on RMR. Sims Creek Ranch is also being marketed for sale by Confluence Land Company.
The crown jewel of Rogers Mountain Ranch is its approximate 10,000 square foot fully custom, off-grid rock and timber lodge. Actress Goldie Hawn and actor Kurt Russell constructed the lodge in the late 90’s. Under current ownership since 2010 it has been meticulously and routinely maintained by onsite ranch management. In addition to properly caring for the lodge, the current owners have implemented robust improvements to its wind tower and solar array, power storage systems, internal electrical systems and recently replaced the generator that supplies backup power. The lodge has also seen a host of interior renovations. The lodge itself has been valued significantly below its replacement cost in this offering.
There are a total of eleven ponds on RMR. Pruden, Union and the Balm of Gilead Creeks drain the ranch and fill its ponds. Anglers and non-anglers alike will delight by the trout stocked in six of the ponds on the ranch. The fishing on the ranch is remarkable. If additional angling pursuits are desired, fly fishing on the “Dream Stream”, a Gold Medal designated stretch of the South Platte River which runs through Elevenmile Canyon and Spinney Mountain reservoirs can be enjoyed as it is only a ten-minute drive from the ranch. Laiden with aquatic insects and other aquatic biomass from Spinney Mountain Reservoir which supports trout and salmon you will quickly understand from where its nickname is earned. Still water anglers will also delight with over 171,000 acre feet of reservoirs that surround the ranch. The boat ramp to the largest of the three reservoirs is mere minutes from the ranch.
