Situated completely in unincorporated Eagle County, but sharing its northern property line with the town of Eagle’s municipal border, Hardscrabble Mountain Ranch offers the privacy of a large-scale ranch combined with the conveniences of a nearby, lively small town. Eagle, the county seat, offers a variety of restaurants, shopping, and entertainment options, but in an understated style not found in neighboring resort communities.
The ranch is located just seven miles from Eagle County Regional Airport (EGE), which offers direct flights to and from 11 major American cities including Houston, Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, and New York. Beaver Creek Resort and Vail Mountain Resort are 24 and 33 miles, respectively, east of the ranch via I-70, and the Denver metro area is just two hours from the ranch, also via I-70.
Due to its elevation of 6,600 feet above sea level and its position in one of Colorado’s “banana belt” regions, the climate around Eagle is surprisingly mild, even at the peak of winter. These reasonable weather patterns allow Eagle residents to enjoy the best of both worlds – mild winter temperatures and snowfall at home, complemented by world-class skiing and deep powder just 24 miles away.

Frost Creek Country Club & Community
Hardscrabble Mountain Ranch is bordered to the south by Frost Creek (formerly the Adam’s Mountain Country Club), a private, luxury golf community featuring a challenging and scenic 285-acre Tom Weiskopf-designed golf course. The 18-hole members-only course features eight lakes, a driving range, and practice chipping and putting areas, all surrounded by the spectacular topography of the Brush Creek Valley. The club also boats a luxury 40,000+ square foot clubhouse featuring a dining room, lounge, fitness center, pool, tennis courts, and other spa amenities. Club memberships may be negotiated as part of the ranch purchase price.
Interspersed throughout the golf course are dozens of fully developed, multi-acre homesites, as well as several recently built custom homes, many of which are available for immediate purchase. Detailed information regarding the Club and available real estate opportunities can be provided upon request.
