About this Ranch
Cheney Creek Ranchette is situated on the Western Slope of Colorado, just outside of the small town of Collbran. The ranchette encompasses 65± acres of level and slightly sloping mountain terrain, making for relatively easy access to the whole ranch. Currently, the ranch is set up well for a hobbyequestrian property, but the opportunities are endless with this ranchette’s potential.
Cheney Creek Ranchette has a beautiful, raised ranch home, offering the perfect mountain retreat for entertaining your friends, family, and business associates. The stucco home with large beams throughout and blue pine tongue and groove ceilings consists of 3 bedrooms and 4 baths, a private office (or 4th bedroom), and a mother-in-law suite above the two-car garage with outside private access. A wood stove is nicely placed in the living area with a 2-way rock fireplace in the main level owner’s suite. The second level offers a great layout with guest bedrooms on each end with their own bathrooms and an open living loft area in the middle, all accented with vaulted tongue and groove ceilings and beautiful views. Additionally, a 1 bedroom, 1 bath caretaker's apartment is above the barn with kitchen, living, fireplace, and stunning views. This equestrian property has a barn with three padded horse stalls, a tack room, heated water, a half bathroom, and an insulated shop.
This region of Colorado is known for its high elk populations, offering hunters an excellent chance of harvesting both bull and cow elk. The elk hunting on the ranch is nothing short of incredible, and the scrub oak brush provides an excellent source of cover and feed for both deer and black bears. Located in game management unit 421, over-the-counter elk tags are available for archery, 2nd rifle, and 3rd rifle season. Opportunities to harvest two elk per hunter are possible with Unit 421 being classified as a List B Unit. Depending on the season you are hunting, a hunter can harvest an additional antlerless elk. Elk can be found on the ranch from the early archery season through the late rifle seasons. Mesa County is renowned for large mule deer, and there are 47 documented typical mule deer bucks listed in Boone and Crocket records book. Other species found on the ranch include Merriam turkeys, black bears, mountain lion, coyote, and bobcat.
In addition to being the perfect equestrian property to raise and train horses, this ranch makes for an excellent VRBO/Airbnb with income potential. Throughout the years, the ranchette has shown a track record of rental income. The rental interest shows how attractive the area is and all the recreational potential the ranchette has to offer.
