Few places on Earth can match the alpine views from the breathtaking building envelope of the Huntsman Reserve! Unobstructed, protected, views of Chair Mountain and the secluded Ragged Mountain Wilderness are unparalleled in all of Colorado.

Located adjacent to the ‘Roadless Area” Gunnison National Forest, the undeveloped foreground views will be virtually protected forever. This exclusive home site on the edge of an Alpine Mesa, behind a locked gate, has been precisely selected to maximize security and privacy, in a wilderness forest setting, for the discriminating homeowner and family.

A recent US President, who stayed at the historic Huntsman Reserve, remarked, “I have traveled the world, but never sat in a more beautiful spot on the Earth!” He then stood up, looked over the vast wilderness views, and said, “What a great Nation!”

Mike's Thoughts on Huntsman Reserve

The Huntsman Reserve represents a very rare opportunity to acquire one of the finest private building sites in the Rocky Mountain West. Majestic views, privacy, solitude, creek frontage, and adjacency to thousands of acres of National Forest make the Huntsman Reserve a very compelling opportunity that doesn’t come along very often!
