Meeker Ranch & Colorado Outfitting Business for Sale
The serious investor and recreation provider should take note, Tel and Ashlie Gates are offering River’s Bend Colorado Outfitting business and their ranch for sale. Located on 70 acres southeast of Meeker, Colorado on the banks of the world-famous White River, the ranch is the home base of a thriving and beautifully run Colorado outfitting business. River’s Bend is known for offering outstanding hunting experiences for wilderness elk, mule deer, Shiras moose, bighorn sheep, and bear, as well as fly-fishing expeditions on the famous South Fork of the White River. The business has 15 wilderness camps and is booked for 200 hunters a year for three years in advance.
Meeker Colorado ranch for sale has 2 historic homes
Situated at the end of a well-maintained gravel county road, about a mile from a paved road and 8 miles southeast of Meeker in northwest Colorado, the ranch has 70 acres, almost all of it irrigated, and bordered on the east by the White River. Built in 1904, the main house has been added onto a couple of times so that it now comprises over 3,600 square feet with 4 bedrooms and 2 baths. It has a large south-facing living room with vaulted ceilings and enough wall space for many trophy game mounts.
Adjacent to the main house is a wrangler’s bunkhouse, a fairly simple home with 2 bedrooms, a bath, and kitchen. Additionally, there is a small wrangler’s cabin that can bunk 4 people with no bathroom or kitchen.
Colorado horse property for sale–ranch with White River frontage has excellent horse improvements
The River’s Bend Ranch is set up to efficiently gather, saddle, and transport over 100 horses. While the pasture is set in the riverbottom and provides lush grazing for the horses, the barns are located on a bench above the pasture. The wranglers push the horses into a set of well-built pipe corrals, where they can select the horses for the day’s work. Saddles and tack are stored in three different metal storage containers, which is important because they can be sealed tight against mice and packrats.
Roof trusses are bridged between the storage containers to make an excellent shelter to saddle horses out of the elements, whereupon the horses are loaded into waiting horse trailers to head to the trailhead. It is an incredibly efficient system that can handle the large volume of business accomplished by this endeavor.
