New Listing: Self-Sustaining Ranch for Sale in Colorado with Private Lake

Black Bear Ranch | ranch for sale in ColoradoBlack Bear Ranch | ranch for sale in ColoradoMirr Ranch Group is pleased to announce the listing of Black Bear Ranch, a new ranch for sale in Colorado. This 902-acre recreational ranch, with its lush alpine woodlands, offers a wilderness setting adjoining public lands, yet is only 20 minutes from Glenwood Springs and within an hour from Aspen.


  • Fed by two streams, the 20-acre private lake offers fishing and valuable water rights, and is also a sanctuary for wildlife including the resident swans, moose, trophy elk and deer.
  • The property features a custom two-story, 3-bedroom and 2-bath log home with wrap-around deck that is off grid and self sustaining, powered by its own solar array.
  • Set on a protected knoll above the lake, the home provides southern exposures and panoramic views of Mount Sopris and the Raggeds Wilderness, affording direct access to thousands of acres of forested lands for summer and winter recreation.

According to ranch broker, Ken Mirr, “The Black Bear Ranch represents an opportunity to own a large private and scenic Roaring Fork Valley ranch, with water rights, healthy and pristine alpine forest, pastures, a private lake and adjacency to public lands, and it is strategically located just 6 miles from Glenwood Springs.”

The ranch is also a strong candidate for a conservation easement if a future owner is interested. Currently, Black Bear Ranch is unencumbered by easements.

Martha Cochran of The Aspen Valley Land Trust has said, “It is a stupendous property. It’s the classic type of property we’d be interested in because of its incredible wildlife habitat, and it borders public lands and connects lots of large open spaces.”

The Black Bear Ranch, a ranch for sale in Colorado, is offered for $12,000,000. Contact Ken Mirr for more information.
