Location and Area

Nestled in the picturesque Mancos River Valley a convenient five minutes east of Mancos and twenty-five minutes west of the Durango historic downtown area, the ranch is located on the west side of US Highway 160. With spectacular views of the La Plata Mountain range to the northeast and Mesa Verde and Sleeping Ute Mountain to the south, the ranch sits in a most picturesque setting.

Mancos is poised at the base of Mesa Verde National Park, and as a small rural town, offers basic services to the surrounding community. The charming town of Durango is located 25 miles to the north, and has many big city conveniences, including a state-of-the-art new hospital, many fine restaurants, hotels, shopping, a four-year college, and many cultural activities. The four-corners area provides endless activities for the outdoor sports enthusiast. The ranch is at an elevation 7,000 ft. above sea level, surrounded by scenic mountain and valley views, and over 300 days of sunshine each year. Comfortable summer temperatures reach the upper 80s, while the autumn days are clear, cool and full of vibrant foliage colors. The crisp and sunny winter days often feature abundant, light powdery snow.

The Montezuma County area, which includes Mancos, Cortez and Dolores, has a population of approximately 30,000 and is the southwestern most of the 64 counties in the state of Colorado. Mesa Verde National Park, Canyon of the Ancients National Monument, Yucca House National Monument, and Hovenweep National Monument preserve hundreds of ancient Amer-Indian structures, including the famous cliff dwellings, found in the county. Roughly 1/3 of the county is tribal land, 1/3 is federal land (administered by the National Park Service, the United States Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management), and 1/3 is private or state/county land. The La Plata County area, including Durango and Bayfield has a population of 45,000. La Plata County Airport runs daily commercial air service to Denver, Albuquerque, Salt Lake City and Phoenix, with seasonal service to Houston and Dallas, and includes facilities for full service general aviation. The property is approximately 75 miles from Telluride, 170 miles from Grand Junction, 210 miles from Albuquerque and Santa Fe, about 320 miles from Denver and Colorado Springs and 430 miles from Phoenix.
