Diamond Tail Ranch embodies the iconic image of an authentic Rocky Mountain ranch, encompassing a secluded valley at the base of snow-capped peaks, with a trout-filled river flowing through lush meadows and pastures dotted with abundant wildlife grazing alongside ranch livestock. The picturesque setting for this extraordinary ranch is the pristine upper Laramie River Valley in northern Colorado, an optimal locale where the river spills out of the high country into a broad valley ringed by mountains. Spanning the entire five-mile width of the basin, Diamond Tails 17,656+/- deeded acres ascend up the surrounding mountain slopes to wilderness, national forest and BLM boundaries. Incredible amounts of water flow onto the property from all sides, highlighted by over 27 miles of live water and outstanding private trout fishing. The Laramie River, an excellent wild brown fishery, flows through the heart of the ranch for 11.5+/- miles. Two tributary streams, McIntyre and LaGarde Creeks, add 5.8+/- miles of additional trout fishing. A handful of smaller year-round creeks contribute another 9.8 miles of water for agriculture and wildlife. With all this live water flowing through the ranch, homesteaders began filing on the water for irrigation beginning as early as 1880. In total, an astounding 307.6+/- CFS of senior water rights are owned by the ranch, irrigating approximately 3,000 acres. Rich riparian and production areas are complemented by rolling grassland prairies ideal for grazing. As they had done for centuries, a large bison herd still roams the ranch today. Diamond Tail is well known for its commercial bison, operating successfully for over 30 years. The 750+/- head bison herd is complemented by a ranch cattle herd of 350 head plus another 450+/- head leased during the summer grazing season. Grazing permits adjacent to the ranch add 20,225+/- acres of additional capacity, and a capable ranch manager and staff ensure an efficient operation. The higher elevations of the ranch add attractive scenery as well as habitat diversity for abundant wildlife. Aspen groves and timbered hillsides provide bedding and cover to balance the water and feeding areas, attracting game from the surrounding Rawah Wilderness, Roosevelt National Forest and BLM lands. Resident species include prolific herds of elk, as well as mule and whitetail deer, moose, pronghorn, black bear, cougar, grouse and a variety of waterfowl. The sheer size of the ranch, combined with plentiful wildlife and Landowner Preference applications, make it an excellent hunting property. Since 1979, Diamond Tail Ranch has been carefully stewarded by the Duncan family, owners of renown Silver Oak Cellars. A functional array of quality improvements are utilized for owner, guest and operational usage. Well-maintained buildings range from historic barns to modern owners homes and authentic guest cabins. Unique structures such as a dining hall and hilltop chapel help accommodate large groups comfortably. The ranch is outfitted with on-site employee housing, operational support buildings, livestock handling facilities, and even a private airstrip. Despite its secluded mountain valley locale, Diamond Tail is easily accessible 45+/- minutes from all services in Laramie, Wyoming, including the commercial airport, and only 2-3 hours from the Ft. Collins, Boulder and Denver metro areas. Steeped in historical significance, natural resources and ecological importance, Diamond Tail Ranch is truly one of the most appealing and significant large-scale mountain ranches to become available in recent years. It is exceptionally rare to find a diverse ranch running on over 37,800 contiguous acres, spanning a beautiful river valley, and no existing conservation easement. Even more compelling is a successful ag component that supports the ownership of the ranch, without interfering with its recreation.

Motherwell RanchSpanning an enormous block of contiguous deeded land rising from the river valley to the mountaintop, the Motherwell Ranch is distinguished by its exceptional privacy, diverse landscape, abundant water, plentiful wildlife and accessible location. This landmark property stands out as a rare example of a large-scale Colorado mountain ranch combining multi-faceted recreational and agricultural resources in one complete and balanced package. The Motherwell is situated in the scenic Williams Fork River valley along the north flank of the Flat Tops Mountains of northwest Colorado. Entering at the ranch gate, one is immediately struck by the stunning landscape embodied by this 10,350+/- acre property. From the cottonwood-lined river and hay meadows in the foreground to the timbered skyline in the distance, nearly the entire field of view is encompassed by the ranch. Beyond the private bridge over the river, the ranch rises 2,550 feet in elevation over 5 miles to the national forest boundary, blending a rich mosaic of irrigated meadows, grass pastures, rolling foothills, verdant mountain parks, and forests of aspen and conifers. The upper third of the ranch was formerly a part of Routt National Forest and remains representative of the quality and character of the finest lands found in our national forests. Historically, the ranch has been operated as a highly-regarded hunting destination for trophy elk and mule deer. Complementing the outstanding wildlife component of the Motherwell is plentiful water for fishing, boating, aesthetics, irrigation, and stock water. Its slopes are predominantly north-facing, resulting in lush ecosystems laden with a multitude of springs, creeks, ponds, and wallows. The higher elevations of the property are highlighted by three beautiful mountain lakes ranging between 10 and 20 surface acres in size. The lower ranch is anchored by 3.3 miles of both sides of the Williams Fork River, an excellent trout fishing stream. The scenic and recreational strengths of the Motherwell are further enhanced by its extraordinary privacy and location. Encompassing one contiguous land mass of more than 16 square miles, the ranch has no private inholdings and no impacts from public roads. This is rare for a ranch this size, and results in exceptional seclusion. Yet, for all its privacy, the front gate is only 20 minutes from the region’s commercial airport and world-class ski resort amenities with full services are only 45 minutes away in Steamboat Springs, striking the perfect balance between accessibility and escape. Well-suited improvements consisting of the ranch headquarters buildings, owner’s home, guest cabins and hunting lodge provide comfortable accommodations without being overdone. Extensive equestrian facilities are complemented by livestock operation support buildings and quality fencing. Private bridges over the river link to an excellent network of interior roads and trails to access all the various activity destinations throughout the ranch. Thoughtfully assembled by current ownership through a series of private and public land acquisitions, the Motherwell has benefited from enduring stewardship that is now in its fourth decade. Additionally, there are no conservation easements on the ranch, leaving it unrestricted and preserving that option for the next owner. The Motherwell is a rare example of the ideal Colorado legacy mountain ranch. It’s what many would create if they were able to craft their ultimate ranch from scratch. They would start with a massive block of private land with a river valley on one end, the national forest boundary on the other, and a diverse and scenic landscape throughout. The ranch would have plenty of quality water for fishing and excellent habitat for wildlife and livestock. It would be all in one contiguous unit with no public roads or public access for exceptional privacy. It would be well-balanced, multidimensional, and offer a wide variety of outdoor pursuits for multiple generations. Lastly, it would be located in an undeveloped rural valley that is easily accessible from a commercial airport and vibrant mountain town. There is only one Colorado ranch on the market that fits this description and there may never be another one. It’s hard to imagine a more attractive and complete package than what is available with the Motherwell. The Facts10,350+/- acres all in one contiguous block, 5 to 6.5 miles north-south and 3 to 4.5 miles east-west.Elevations from 6,650 to 9,200 feet with 2,550 feet of elevation change from bottom to top.Borders Routt County Road 29 on the north end which is maintained year-round.Borders four miles of national forest on the south end.Borders 2.5 miles BLM on the west side.90+/- acre of BLM land inside of the ranch boundaries, leased by ranch and no public access.3,070+/- acres were formerly Routt National Forest and were conveyed to private ownership in 1972 and 1992.3.3 miles of both sides of the East Fork of the Williams Fork River, a great fishing stream.The river is a medium gradient freestone stream averaging 25 – 50 feet in width.Additionally three tributary streams flow through the ranch – Second Creek, Sand Creek and Butler Creek. Three large high mountain lakes range in size from approximately 10 to 16.5 surface acres, plus a 4 acre lake by the river and countless ponds, springs and wallows throughout the ranch.Approximately 24.5+/- CFS of irrigation water rights.Outstanding recreation is balanced by productive alfalfa and grass hay meadows and cattle grazing.Predominantly north facing slopes, contributing to lusher ecology than would be found on south and west facing slopes.Varied vegetation including cottonwood and willow river and creek bottoms, irrigated meadows, alfalfa, grass, sage, brush, oaks, aspens and dark timber.The ranch lays out very nicely from bottom to top and although it is very diverse, the terrain of the ranch is gentle and usable with an abundance of parks, benches, basins, hills and valleys.Tremendous elk and mule deer hunting due to exceptional habitat, location and herd migrations.Both resident and migratory elk utilize the ranch.  The area’s White River elk herd is largest in the world.Currently 4,000 +/- acres high-fenced park with trophy elk herd provides additional hunting options through private management.  This could be enhanced or discontinued by next owner.Excellent network of interior roads and trails throughout the ranch.Well-built and comfortable improvements consisting of:Ranch headquartersOwner’s homeThree guest cabinsHunting lodgeEquestrian facilityLocated only 20 minutes (17 miles) from the regional airport and 45 minutes (37 miles) from ski resort town amenities in Steamboat Springs.The ranch was assembled by current ownership starting in the mid 1980s and expanded with several additions during the 1990s and early 2000s.No public roads bisect the ranch.No private inholdings.No public inholdings with public access.No conservation easement.***FOR HIGH RESOLUTION PHOTO GALLERY, ADDITIONAL INFORMATION AND A VARIETY OF PROPERTY MAPS VISIT HALL AND HALL PROPERTY WEBSITE ***

One of the few remaining historic northern California cattle and hay ranches, in one of the best locations: at the foot of the Sierra! The Historic Constantia Ranch is a classic historical northern California cattle and hay ranch. This unique Ranch’s history dates back to the late 1800’s when Albert Elijah Smith discovered the land and built a $14,000 mansion with 17 rooms. It was nicknamed the “White House.” The Ranch is located in Doyle Ca. just 40 minutes north of Reno NV, with acreage on both sides of U.S. Hwy 395. The majority of the ranch land is nearly all level, with approximately 600 acres of steeper land reaching into the Sierra and bordering National Forest. The Ranch has various water sources. There is a productive spring that consistently provides about 300 GPM to the ranch headquarter buildings and provides significant flood irrigation on a portion of the ranch. The Ranch has excellent water rights from Long Valley Creek; a dam on the property is able to divert enough water to run a full pivot. Additionally there is a brand new well on the property that pumps 1,300 GPM. There is an older well on the property that pumps approximately 450 GPM that is run by diesel power. The aquifer in the area is stable. It is possible to drill additional productive wells closer to power. There are currently two pivots on the ranch, new in 2008, with additional older wheel lines. The ranch currently produces approximately 400-500 ton of hay and alfalfa per year. The production could be significantly increased with better overall management. The Historic Constantia Ranch has plenty of usable contiguous deeded acres, with the resources and potential of running as many as 300-350 head of cattle year round, inside the deeded land, with an efficient grazing program. Improvements on the ranch include an approximately 3,000 sq. ft.ranch headquarters home with a 3 car garage. A second smaller home provides for comfortable living for a caretaker or ranch employees. There is a large approximately 9,000 sq. ft. metal barn that was newly built in 2010. Also included is a classic 100 year old wooden barn, a smaller wooden barn, and two older homes that at one time were the old ranch headquarters. These homes could possibly be restored or reconstructed. There are about 6 mostly historic “Constantia” buildings, including the old Constantia store, all in need of restoration, repair or reconstruction. Less than an hour from Reno Tahoe International Airport. This is all quality land with resources intact. There is tremendous upside and unlimited potential for the Historic Constantia Ranch with quality ownership and good management.

Arriving at the ranch and driving to the buildings after crossing over the badlands, the view to the west and north is of the 1036 acres of bottom land area along the Yellowstone River that borders the ranch for approximately 4 miles. Smith Creek runs through the middle of the ranch for over 4 miles and provides consistent stock water, irrigation water and excellent habitat. An oversized Valley center pivot irrigates 368 acres and another 99 acres is flood irrigated. There is an additional 204 acres of dryland crop scattered throughout the ranch utilized for food plots and livestock feed. The Eastern White Pine log home, built in 2002, has 3042 square feet with 6 bedrooms and 3 ½ baths. The log home, with its large wrap around deck, is sited along a bluff overlooking the bottomland and provides just the idyllic setting that one would expect on a classic Montana ranch.

It boasts a large populations of whitetail deer, mule deer, turkey and an occasional antelope.  Pheasant and grouse can be found in the bottoms and cropland, respectively, for those who enjoy upland bird hunting.  Goose and duck hunting are also available due to the proximity to the Yellowstone River which also provides excellent fishing.

Popular hunting shows broadcast on national television has filmed approximately 300 episodes on this ranch. LOCALE Sidney, Montana sits near the junction of the Yellowstone and Missouri Rivers in northeastern Montana. Lewis and Clark once camped in this area that was one of the leading fur trading regions of the country. Permanent settlers arrived with the Great Northern Railroad. In 1911 Sidney became an incorporated town and the Richland County Seat, so named for the promise of the U.S. Reclamation Service project and the booster rhetoric of the era.  In the early 1900s, high national farm prices encouraged the federal government to construct the Lower Yellowstone Irrigation Project. Richland County farmers were then able to irrigate their land and produce abundant beet, oats and grain crops. The initial success of the Lower Yellowstone Irrigation project, along with the homesteading boom of the early 1910s, led to the creation of Richland County. Sidney was the largest town on the Northern Pacific’s spur that ran up the Lower Yellowstone Valley. The historic grain elevators along the tracks testify to generations of agricultural products shipped from the town, although today the incessant freight traffic serving the oil fields of the nearby Williston Basin overwhelm the earlier agricultural focus.  The Yellowstone is the last free flowing river in the lower 48 states. From its headwaters in Lake Yellowstone downstream 670 miles to the Missouri River in North Dakota, the Yellowstone River flows as it has for centuries, in its natural state, undammed and untamed. Clear, cool swift and challenging it offers fishermen and river runners some of the best water Montana has to offer. To fishermen, its blue-ribbon waters are known world round for an abundance of big trout. As it flows through Montana the big river goes through many changes - from steep-walled canyons where boulders churn its green waters to the eastern part of the state where the river broadens to take a lazy path through fertile farm country. There are many opportunities for recreation along the Yellowstone River. Gravel along the river from Custer to Sidney often yields Montana agates. Fishing and floating are two other favorite activities on the Yellowstone.
