Have you stayed at Colorado's best kept secret? If not, you're missing out. Arapaho Valley Ranch is a hidden gem tucked away in the Indian Peaks Wilderness off of Lake Granby. This family owned, 200 acre ranch has plenty to offer for the family. Being surrounded by Arapaho National Forest you'll have access to countless hiking trails, waterfalls, fishing, and other water activities. You'll also be in walking distance from Monarch Lake, where you can see historic steam engines from old town Monarch. If you don't want to explore too far from camp, there are plenty of ponds and rivers on site for fishing or paddle boarding, they even have complimentary canoes to enjoy. Make sure you check out "Colorado's smallest bar" the Red Dog Saloon. If it's not already at capacity, you and 3 of your friends can enjoy a cold one.
AVR offers many different options for your accommodations. If you like to keep it old school they offer regular campsites, including sites along the river. If you're new to camping or in the mood for something different check out their "Glamping" tents or Teepees, perfect for a couple's getaway or family of 4. For that larger group make sure to look into their cabins or dispersed camping options. Planning on saying "I DO" or need a venue for your next family reunion? Arapaho Valley Ranch is an amazing choice with their endless breathtaking views.

Originally from the east and more recently, Indiana, my husband and I have been vacationing here since the early 1990's. In 2013, we purchased a second home in Fraser. Our twin boys, who have been ski racing since a young age, joined the Winter Park Competition Center Full-Time Academy in 2014 and their passion for competing prompted us to relocate to Winter Park permanently. I enjoy hiking, skiing, biking, photography, and teaching Spinning and Pilates. I chose a career in Real Estate to share my love for Winter Park and help others find their perfect mountain home!

"Thank you for Mary Orear. She was exceptionally attentive during the entire process. She helped me starting with the initial “I think I want to buy a house” to a year of watching a crazy fast market and looking at countless homes/condos, she was there every step of the way. I appreciate her so much and will continue to spread the word about her fantastic services and I’m sure all of her other clients feel the same way.
