“This is truly a multi-dimensional ranch and one of the finest properties in all of Colorado,” said Buerger. “Outstanding fly- fishing on approximately 1.32 miles of the Elk River, a large well-stocked private lake, healthy big-game populations, and very attractive improvements all less than 15 minutes from a jet-capable airport is a rare combination.”
Round Mountain Ranch is located in the heart of the Elk River Valley in the northwest quarter of Colorado, home to the largest migratory elk herd in the United States. The Routt National Forest is adjacent to the ranch and offers phenomenal hunting and fishing resources. Elk, mule deer, and bear are the primary big-game species found in this area. The agricultural operation on the ranch is suited for cattle, yearlings, horses, and a haying operation.
This Colorado property, which has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, offers all three venues of trout fishing - river, stream and lake. The Elk River is a fertile, medium gradient river that mostly flows through private ranch land with limited public access. The average size trout on Round Mountain’s stretch of the river is 14 to 16 inches, with an excellent population of fish over 20 inches. The ranch's meadow stream offers a more intimate setting and was created by the leading aquatic habitat and fisheries restoration and enhancement firm, CFI Global. The stream averages 10 feet in width and supports year-round populations of rainbow, brown and cutthroat trout. The five acre lake is a great complement to the river and stream, fishing well even when they are unfishable during spring runoff. There are huge trout in the depths of this lake.
Improvements on the ranch ensure privacy and offer an abundance of space for guests and employees. There is a 5,126 square ft. owner’s home, a 4,000 square ft. manager house, a 900 sq. ft. lake house, a 460 sq. ft. river cabin, a 4,000 sq. foot barn with five 12x12 horse stalls, a 6,500 sq. foot shop, a 10,000 sq. foot hay shed, and more.

Round Mountain Ranch is conveniently located near multiple airports and recreational amenities abound. Just 11 miles south of the ranch is the Steamboat Springs Airport, also referred to as Bob Adams Field. Steamboat Ski Resort is world famous for its characteristic Champagne Powder® and great tree skiing. Just north of the ranch Steamboat Lake is one of the most scenic water-ski and boating lakes in the country. Hundreds of miles of groomed trails and limitless backcountry opportunities make the Hahn's Peak area north of the ranch one of the best snowmobiling venues in the nation.
