Nestled in the heart of the Gunnison National Forest and bordered by the West Elk Wilderness Area, the Floresta Ranch consists of 1,650+/-acres. The ranch is set apart from of all other high country, mountain ranches with a pristine 10-acre lake called Lily Lake and open, native grassy meadows are overshadowed by the magnificent Anthracite Range bordering its southern borders. Anthracite Creek runs through the old town site of Floresta. Magnificent views of East Beckwith Mountain, the Anthracite Range, Storm Ridge, Marcellina Mountain, West Beckwith Mountain, Mount Axtell, Big Soap park, West Elk Peak and Squirrel Creek are only a few of the numerous monuments throughout the Gunnison National Forest surrounding Floresta Ranch.
The lodge, completely solar powered, sleeps 16-people comfortably with four master bedrooms and six full baths, fully equipped kitchen, dining area and living areas on each level and a massive, rock fireplace made with mining remnants from the Town site at Floresta. The cabin serves as a gathering place for the many outdoor activities that awaits its visitors. A two story 1760 sq ft garage/shop has plenty of room for all the ATV's, snowmobiles and dirt bikes.
Backcountry Skiing is stellar boasting more than 1,200 vertical feet of glade and above Timberline northerly exposed terrain keeping the powder light for weeks. Great care has been taken to keep the ranch’s pristine identity and a major forest management plan has greatly improved the healthy forest that is an integral part of the ranch. A remarkable trail system has been implemented to create access to all parts of the property. Part of the Floresta mine remnants and remaining buildings have been preserved in allowing one to still have a sense of the mining operation that years ago was a vibrant part of days gone by. You can still walk the narrow gauge train bed path that once served the town-site. Truly is a one-of-a-kind mountain retreat!
