Half-way between Historic Downtown Durango and Quaint Pagosa Springs, Serenity Ranch encompasses 251 acres surrounded on 3 sides by San Juan National Forest. Tall Ponderosa Pines, Gamble Oak and Aspens frame the drainages, ponds and large, open meadows providing exceptional cover and feed for an abundance of wildlife including Mule Deer, Rocky Mountain Elk, Wild Turkey, Bald Eagles, Red Fox and maybe even an occasional Lynx that meanders through for a drink at the pond. Water is plentiful, coming from a 10+ gpm well and 1.5 cfs of adjudicated water rights, which can support up to 60 acres of irrigated meadows. A well-constructed gravel road brings you from the entrance toward the back of the ranch with electrical service alongside. The western portion of the Ranch is the most private, where the largest ponds, meadows and water well are located. Along the western edge is also where an old Stagecoach road traverses the property. Serenity Ranch placed a Conservation Easement on the property to protect the special wildlife habitat. The Easement does include provisions for several homesite envelopes, however, precludes breaking up this exceptional ranch. This location is currently one of the most desirable in all of Colorado. To the west is Durango with its “buzzy feel” enhanced by exceptional restaurants, mountain shopping experiences, Fort Lewis College and Purgatory Ski and Activity Resort. Also, commercial air service is available just 25 minutes from Serenity Ranch at La Plata County Airport (DRO) with direct service to Denver, Phoenix, Dallas, Salt Lake City, Las Vegas and LAX, serviced by United, American, Frontier and now Delta. Head to the east and you will find a bit quieter pace in Pagosa Springs. The Pagosa Hot Springs along with several other hot springs; both in town and in the forest are what put Pagosa on the map. Pagosa is a peninsula of a town surrounded by 2.5 million acres of national forest. So although Pagosa lays claim to several trendy restaurants, the arts and shopping boutiques, its known for its abundance of outdoor experiences. Wolf Creek Ski area, 25 minutes from downtown Pagosa boasts the “Most Snow in Colorado” averaging 400”/year. This easily accessible location offers a private forest outlining mountain meadows and pastures, creating an environment ideal for your recreational or equestrian ranch, family lodge, hunting lodge, executive retreat, or a myriad of other creative uses.
