The Mesita Ranch sits on the banks of the world-famous Rio Grande River, which makes a 1,800-mile journey from the Peaks of the San Juans to the Gulf of Mexico. The Rio Grande River flows through the San Luis Valley, a high-altitude desert region known for its natural beauty and agricultural productivity. It is a popular destination for fishing, rafting, and other outdoor activities, drawing visitors from across Colorado and beyond. Today, the San Luis Valley is known for its stunning natural beauty, with the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve, the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, and the Rio Grande River all located within its boundaries. Based in an agricultural region, crops such as potatoes, barley, and alfalfa are produced.
The ranch is protected by its eastern neighbor, being a large, conserved ranch never to be built on, and adjacent to large sections of public BLM lands. Located just north of the the Rio Grande Canyon, a stunning natural wonder in northern New Mexico and southern Colorado. Carved over millions of years by the mighty Rio Grande River, the canyon stretches over 1,200 feet deep and is a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers. The canyon features dramatic rock formations, steep cliffs, and breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape. The Rio Grande Canyon is also an important cultural site, with a rich history of human habitation dating back thousands of years.
The Mesita Lakes Ranch on the Rio Grande River is a piece of beauty in a very private place, with magical views, live water, wild horses, and the very active waterfowl flyway tucked under a skyline of majestic peaks. This mountain ranch has what so few have to offer, a truly awe-inspiring package, location, improvements, live water, access, and protected neighbors.
