Fifty minutes from the heart of the international ski mecca of Telluride, the acclaimed San?Juan Skyway of southwest Colorado unfolds a 321-acre paradise that takes your breath away. Embracing over a mile and a half alongside the Dolores River, and adjoining thousands of acres of the San Juan National Forest, it is the undisputed jewel of the region. The comforting eleven-bedroom dwelling, designed with a view to corporate entertaining, was created from the historic Stoner Ski Lodge. The original 100-year-old homestead now serves as a three-bedroom ranch manager’s house. Beyond lie a voluminous barn, outdoor riding and events arena, and several historic outbuildings. Not surprisingly, it is here, outdoors, where the Old West spirit of the classic working cattle ranch lives on in all its glory: where you can saddle up for a ride through your own pristine wilderness or search for trout in your own serene stretch along the Dolores River or just plain relax the old fashioned way, reflecting on life from one of the most magical environments that you can find anywhere.
