A tranquil oasis of lush irrigated meadows and cottonwood-lined streams nestled beneath rocky buttes, Table Rock Ranch is one of the finest fly-fishing properties in western Colorado. The extraordinary water, beauty and privacy of this end-of-the-road property are complemented by outstanding accommodations and a convenient location within easy reach of both the Vail Valley and Steamboat Springs resort areas. Table Rock Ranch is blessed with a unique setting at the mouth of three canyons where streams tumble out of the rugged mountains and combine their flows as they meander alongside fertile meadows. This natural abundance of water has been further accentuated by professional enhancements to make this ranch truly stand out for the amount of high-quality live water and still-water fishing. Additionally, the rich habitat attracts a variety of wildlife, and vast surrounding BLM lands provide a multitude of pristine areas to explore directly from the 785± acre property. The owner’s compound is situated in a very private location on the banks of Rock Creek in the center of the ranch. Attention to detail in design, construction and furnishings is evident throughout the buildings and grounds of this area. The main lodge serves as the central gathering place, featuring expansive living areas, gourmet kitchen, dining, and multiple outdoor entertaining and lounging areas. A huge outdoor rock fireplace anchors a patio overlooking the creek. On either side of the lodge are two large cabins, each with two bedroom suites linked with living, kitchen and dining areas. Rounding out the compound are an historic barn and two buildings with additional accommodations, vehicle storage and fly shop. All of the buildings in the main compound are tastefully designed and decorated in a bright and colorful “mountain farmhouse” style, providing functional and cohesive spaces that work equally well for large groups or small gatherings. The ranch manager’s home and working facilities are positioned at the entrance to the ranch, where a gate controls access to the property. Although the property is located less than one mile from the paved highway, the road is not visible from the ranch and there is no public access going through the ranch. For all its privacy, Table Rock Ranch is easily accessible, just over 30 minutes to Beaver Creek, about 45 minutes to Vail and an hour to Steamboat Springs. The Vail Valley Jet Center and Eagle County Regional Airport are less than 45 minutes from the ranch.

It all started on the beautiful West Coast of California in the San Francisco Bay area. Colorado was always the home of my family, so - off with the sandals and on with the ski boots - the family arrived in Littleton, Colorado. In 1976, I attended CSU and then soon found myself wanting a career in the healthcare field.
After graduating from the Presbyterian Hospital School of Nursing and Radiologic Science, I was employed as manager of Boulder Memorial Hospital Trauma CT Unit.
