The perfect blend of rustic and refined architecture sprawled across 16,000 square feet of luxury living, High Plains Ranch stands out to redefine the meaning of a five star mountain retreat. This incredible Colorado ranch was designed by renowned architecture group KIBO and completed by Diamond Homes in 2005. Here you’ll find a staggering 6,900 acres of land, comprised of the 10,500 square foot Nevada House Saloon party barn, 14,400 square foot recreation headquarters, a hunting lodge, ski cabin, workshop, and the incredible 16,000 square foot High Plains lodge in the heart of the property.
High Plains lodge is the masterpiece of this ranch, as the sophisticated touches and elements of this lodge truly incorporate the beautiful, natural surroundings of Grand River Ranch. The lodge features a great room complete with cathedral ceilings, exposed beams, trusses, and a stone fireplace, while the soaring foyer is finished with logs originating from Missoula, Montana. The master bedroom is adorned with his and her baths and steam showers, and each of the three other bedroom suites are equipped with a five-piece bath and bunkroom. A sizeable gourmet chef’s kitchen features top grade Viking professional stainless steel appliances, along with stone countertops, hidden appliances and adjoins to a catering kitchen. The oversized deck and massive windows around the lodge effortlessly present the incredible nature and outdoors that the Colorado landscape has to offer. A few more additional amenities in the lodge include the recreation room outfitted with a bar, poker room, pool table, theatre, and patio, as well as an elevator, exercise room with powder room, and a glass-enclosed hot tub.
When it comes to the facilities that surround the lodge, they are quintessential for the adventurer-types and outdoor enthusiasts. The recreation headquarters is a sanctuary of equipment for one to enjoy the great outdoors of the Colorado high country. The awe-inducing list of toys includes snowmobiles, 4x4s, ATVs, snowcats, full-size snowplows, a paintball course, a hockey rink complete with Zamboni, and a workshop. As High Plains Ranch is situated in the 17,000 acre Grand River Ranch, living at High Plains means having an unending list of outdoor adventures to take on all year-round. This includes endless miles of terrain for hiking, mountain biking, off-roading, horseback riding, ATV’ing, four wheeling, or even rafting. Not to mention, the property is perfect for those interested in winter sports, as there are private ski slopes, sledding hills, many trails and access to trophy game hunting. The outpost ski cabin and base camp located in the ranch is readily available all year round to enhance these experiences, with room to accommodate up to ten guests in the ski cabin.
The Nevada House Saloon, on the other hand, is a party barn that’s perfect for creating unforgettable moments with your friends and family. The facility is large enough to accommodate 100 people or more, and is composed with a fully equipped kitchen, a Wallace and Hines custom bar, 2 full and 1 half bathrooms, and even a original slot machine that was used in Las Vegas’ Golden Nugget.
High Plains ranch is undoubtedly a breath of fresh air in the Colorado countryside.
