Eagle’s Nest Ranch offers the opportunity to own an end-of-the-road, exceedingly private mountain retreat within 25 minutes of world-class skiing, dining, and resort life at Beaver Creek and Vail, Colorado. Surrounded on 3 sides by the Holy Cross Wilderness and White River National Forest, Eagle’s Nest Ranch will forever remain uncompromised by neighbors or development. The property sits at the head of Lake Creek, one of the Vail Valley’s most iconic locales. Private access into hundreds of thousands of acres of public land is right out the back door.  The property is traversed by ¼ mile of West Lake Creek, offering private high mountain fishing; and the deeded property itself, with its irrigated hay meadow, is frequented by deer and elk. There is a two bedroom cabin with a full kitchen, two bath, loft, multi-use area, and lower level large garage area for storage, cars, and toys. The home benefits from on-the-grid power, phone (land and cell) and internet service, plus propane heat, well water and septic. For the owner who demands the extreme privacy of a quiet, secluded mountain retreat but also values the benefit of being within minutes of world-class skiing, dining, shopping, nightlife, and medical care, Eagle’s Nest Ranch is simply unparalleled.

Lay of the Land

Eagle’s Nest Ranch is nestled at the upper, southernmost end of West Lake Creek, about 8 miles south of Edwards, Colorado. Lake Creek is known as one of the most prestigious areas in all the Vail Valley. The south boundary is the Holy Cross Wilderness; the east and west boundaries are the White River National Forest. This is effectively an end-of-the-road inholding, insuring that the private, no-neighbor charm of Eagle’s Nest will exist in perpetuity.

The land itself is diverse, with beautiful old-growth fir, timber and aspen forest with small meadows, a pond which has been stocked in the past, and of course the meandering mountain West Lake Creek.

A full-service airport providing both private and commercial aviation facilities are close in Eagle, Colorado. World-class skiing in Beaver Creek (25 minutes), and Vail (45 minutes), attracts a universal audience. Excellent entertainment and dining–summer and winter–is available in Edwards (20 minutes), Vail and Beaver Creek. There is readily available first-class healthcare locally, plus air ambulance service to world-class care in Denver. If the buyer is looking for the ability to hunt, fish, keep horses, snowmobile, hike, cross country ski, on easily accessible trails throughout your own property, this is the perfect place.

Improvements

Eagle’s Nest Ranch includes a two-bedroom cabin with a full kitchen, two baths, loft, multi-use area, and lower level large garage area for storage, cars, and toys. The home benefits from on-the-grid power, phone (land and cell) and internet service, plus propane heat, well water and septic.

There is an electric, code access gate at the entrance to the property, and the property is boundary fenced. There is a nice series of ATV/horse trails throughout the property, and a new owner can find multiple excellent building sites on the ranch.

Terrific elk and deer hunting opportunities are on the deeded ground as well as the surrounding hundreds of thousands of acres of public land (much of which is very difficult for the public to access). The Holy Cross Wilderness with 122,000+ acres of roadless wilderness, is steps away from the cabin. This section of West Lake Creek is very difficult for the public to access, so it is a natural refuge for game animals. The irrigated ground could be dedicated to game-friendly mountain mixes for food plotting as well. The home and storage shed have plenty of capacity for atvs and equestrian gear. There is also a shooting range in place.

Fishing

The ranch itself also includes over ¼ mile of West Lake Creek. The creek is currently an excellent high mountain fishing stream, but the property includes senior water rights which may be used to further enhance the fishing habitat through the ranch.

Conservation Value

Eagle’s Nest Ranch would be an extraordinary candidate for a conservation easement, as it is currently wholly unencumbered, unlike most of the properties in the Lake Creek Valley. With no easements in place, the owner is free to construct whatever suits them.
