Get away to the finest equestrian sanctuary in northwest Colorado, the Hideaway Ranch. Surrounded by Routt National Forest in the Morrison Creek valley, this 320 acre inholding has end of the road privacy complemented by a stunning country home, world class equestrian facilities and a sportsman’s paradise of recreation. From selection of land to construction of improvements, the Hideaway Ranch was created without compromise. With covered decks and hand chinked timber siding the 7500 square foot residence exudes the warm ambience and intimacy of a classic ranch home. However, this is not grandma’s ranch house. Extensive stonework and heavy timbers combine with post and beam construction and modern convenience to create a western masterpiece. With 7 bedrooms, including an attached two bedroom apartment over the garage, the home can handle large families and visitors alike. A chef's kitchen with double ovens, commercial range, and large walk-in pantry is complemented by four additional freezers and refrigerators in the basement. The master suite occupies the entire second floor with sitting room, his and hers offices, walk-in closets, and a master bathroom featuring custom built in cabinetry, dual vanities, and a claw foot tub with mountain views. Look out from the covered decks to a creek fed pond teeming with trout and a fire pit begging for Smores and ghost stories. Beyond the pond lies one of the finest equestrian centers in Colorado. Facilities include a heated indoor arena, an 18 stall barn with radiant heat, two veterinary bays, and eight outdoor paddocks, and a four bay machinery shop and hay storage building. All of this and more awaits on 320 acres of high alpine meadows traversed by Morrison Creek. Hike, ride your horses, bike, snowmobile, or four wheeler into the highly accessible national forest that surrounds the property. Hunt, fish, and observe wildlife and all the beauty that mother nature can muster. The Hideaway Ranch is the quintessential western mountain ranch for those who demand the very best.
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.
