Welcome to Slippery Rock River Ranch – an outdoor paradise boasting world-class fly-fishing along a private 1,100+ foot stretch of the Dolores River. This compound offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a historic legacy property located between the charming western town of Durango and the upscale resort town of Telluride. This is a site where the Rico-Dolores railroad once passed through. Every detail of this 36+ acre estate has been meticulously crafted and constructed by the award-winning team at Veritas Homes and designer Ashley Campbell and featured in Mountain Living Magazine. At the heart of the compound lies a beautifully designed main lodge featuring a gourmet kitchen, dining and game room, as well as an upstairs loft space. Adorned with folding glass doors that overlook the river, the lodge opens onto a covered deck with heated dining space and a brand new hot tub. Trails meander from the lodge to the river's edge or to a stocked fishing pond with its own beachfront. Main lodge by a covered breezeway, to four distinctively appointed bedrooms which offer luxurious accommodations. Additionally, a charming historic log cabin, now serves as a yoga studio or workout room. Situated near the southern end of the property are two seasonal riverside glamping tent sites, a second residence that contains a rustic caretaker's barn with an upstairs apartment, a dedicated fly-tying room, as well as two separate 2-car garages – one of which doubles as a workshop. The meticulous owners have spared no expense in collaborating with the Army Corps of Engineers to enhance the river's habitat, creating a haven for anglers with world-class fly-fishing opportunities. Outdoor enthusiasts will delight in the nearby Priest Gulch hiking trails, Bear Creek hiking trails and creek, Boggy Draw mountain biking trails, as well as off-road jeep and dirt bike trails. Close by, the historic town of Rico offers unique shopping, restaurants and some additional trail and backcountry access. For winter sports enthusiasts, both Telluride and Durango offer exceptional skiing just a short distance away. Nearby Dolores has convenient shopping at the Dolores Market, numerous cafes and shops and the Dolores River Brewing Company. Whether used as a family retreat or managed by Vacation Rental Collective for short-term rentals, this property offers unparalleled opportunities for relaxation, recreation, and luxury living amidst the breathtaking beauty of the Colorado mountains.
