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 natural lake fed by Sweetwater Creek, the land offers year around access and significant water rights. The ranch is near Vail, Beaver Creek, Glenwood Springs and Aspen.
Sweetwater Lake Ranch is 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 flourish within the ranch including deer, elk, mountain lions, turkey, and eagles. Located in GMU 25, the ranch is annually awarded 4 land owner hunting tags.
Rich in history, 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 current AG lease provides AG status on the property.
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 lake and creeks offer recreational enjoyment for boating, canoeing, kayaking, stream and lake fishing.
