Pleasant Valley Ranch is located just 10 miles south of Steamboat Springs and consists of 257 forested acres bordering 1M+ acres of public land. The pavement and regular county road maintenance end at the north entrance to the ranch, providing easy year-round access in one of Steamboats most sought-after locations. Natural beauty, world-class skiing, and some of the best public fishing in the state define this aptly named, idyllic valley. The ranch consists of several ridges and two spring-fed draws situated between the Yampa River corridor and Blacktail Mountain. A few pockets of aspens and small open parks interrupt dense stands of evergreens on the north-facing slopes and Gambel oaks on the south-facing slopes. Numerous building sites take advantage of views of the Yampa River and meadows in the foreground with the 530-acre Lake Catamount and Steamboat ski mountain beyond. Pleasant Valley, south of the lake, opens up to a postcard-like setting with broad hay fields flanking the Yampa. The valley is still home to the family that homesteaded in the late 1800s. The rich history of livestock ranching and hay production is alive and well today and on display every summer when bales of hay dot the meadows framed by dark-timbered slopes. The ranch is bordered on two sides by federal land; the Yampa River flows through the adjacent BLM land for over 1.6 miles, includes the confluence of Sarvis Creek, and is fewer than 100 from the ranch.

The ranch has approximately 2,500 feet of both sides of the Yampa River plus an additional 850+/- feet of shared river on the north end. The 10-mile drive from town leads past two 18-hole golf courses, through the exclusive Lake Catamount neighborhood with its 530-acre private lake, and through the historic ranches of the appropriately named Pleasant Valley. Two tent platforms on the east side of the private bridge are tucked in the tall pines and overlook the river. The land has a picturesque meadow flanked by an aspen grove and a cottonwood-lined river corridor. It is a spectacular setting in a spectacular part of the Rocky Mountains. The southern end of the property adjoins public land that holds an additional 1.5 miles of tailwater fishing below Stagecoach Dam.
