Picture the great American West, and tales of cowboys and Indians, stagecoaches and cattle drives are sure to come to mind! Stumpy Creek Ranch is the property everyone imagines when dreaming of a Western Colorado ranch. This is an authentic western property with a vast amount of history behind it. For instance, the cabin on this ranch was a stagecoach house used by the Sanderson and Co. Stagecoach on its route between Gunnison and Montrose, with the outline of its original placement still visible on the hillside on bright spring mornings. The property hosts 123 irrigated pastures and meadows with Stumpy Creek flowing right through the middle of this beautiful ranch. This hidden gem is very unexpected upon arrival to the boundary line, and even though you are only Â¾ of a mile to the access from Hwy 50 down a county road, you feel deep in the heart of the country side. For the past several years the owners have made this a family destination, where they enjoyed the historic cabin, peacefully quiet setting, privacy, its beautiful surroundings, views of the Cimarron Mountains and abundant wildlife that take sanctuary on this property. From wild turkeys in the Cottonwood Creek bottoms, to cattle and horses calmly grazing across irrigated pastures, you're sure to feel the power of nature. Cow elk calve in the willows in the spring, and elk herds and mule deer migrate down to this secluded valley in the fall and winter from the higher country of the Black Canyon. You'll even have access to the thousands of acres of BLM that runs along the Gunnison River. Walk across your ranch and be taken back in time. This is a great opportunity to own an amazing property, a truly authentic piece of western Colorado history.
