Sweetwater Lake Ranch is a rare opportunity to own one of the most beautiful legacy ranch properties in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Comprised of 488 acres and a 77-acre semi-private natural lake fed by Sweetwater Creek, the land offers year around access and significant water rights. The ranch is conveniently located near Vail, Beaver Creek, Glenwood Springs and Aspen.
Bordered on three sides by the White River National Forest, home of the Flat Tops Wilderness Area - the third largest wilderness area in Colorado. A variety of wildlife flourishes within the ranch including deer, elk, bear, mountain lions, turkey, and eagles. Located in GMU 25, an ideal setting for trophy hunting.
With an elevation ranging from 7,600 to 8,200 you will find a myriad of scenic walking and equestrian trails. The Sawatch Mountain range is a breathtaking backdrop throughout thick aspen groves, healthy timberlands, river valleys and lake shorelines. The landscape is as diverse as it is awe-inspiring. The stocked lake and creeks offer recreational enjoyment for boating, canoeing, kayaking, stream and lake fishing. The southeastern corner of the lake is accessible to the public via the USFS campground, the remaining banks of the lake are private property. Sweetwater is a semi-private, non-motorized lake.
Ideally located on the edge of the Flat Tops Wilderness in the grandeur of the White River National Forest, Sweetwater Lake Ranch is surrounded by an unforgettable panorama of nature from mountain tops to streams rushing through meadows. Sweetwater Lake Ranch was formerly the home of the notorious Chicago gangster, Diamond Jack. Further down the timeline, the Ute Indians lived on the land, leaving behind stunning petroglyphs within a historic cave on the ranch. The property is a prime candidate for a Conservation Easement. A recent appraisal of the property will be shared with interested, qualified buyers. A current AG lease provides AG status on the property.
