Nature was here first


We’ve been thinking about your great-grandchildren

The truth is, there aren’t many places like this left in Colorado — intimate communities with roomy homesites and wilderness beckoning you from every direction. So, we decided to develop just a fraction of the land, leaving the rest untouched. And to protect the natural terrain, water flow, dark skies and wildlife habitats. Together, we’ll preserve this beautiful corner of Colorado for generations.

Dark Skies

It’s humbling to look up at such immenseness. And seeing the Milky Way never gets old. At The Ranches, we’re committed to lighting practices that preserve our magically dark nighttime sky.

Native plantings

You won’t see water-hogging turf imported from other regions. But you will see beautiful ornamental grasses and native trees and flowers that thrive in our alpine climate — and feel nothing like the suburbs.

Energy mindful

We love our sunny Colorado days. Especially how they can help us preserve precious resources. Solar panels and water heaters are welcome — while thoughtfully integrated into home design, of course.


Our first custom home, The Homestead, is well underway. And our homesites, priced from $750,000, may be developed by the builder of your choice or Devil’s Thumb preferred builders.
