About us

The Ranch is in the beautiful Animas Valley off Highway 550 North, on the road to the “Million Dollar Highway”, just 15 minutes from downtown Durango, and 20 minutes from Purgatory Ski Mountain. This mature development is nestled near the terminus of the Hermosa Creek valley and surrounded by soaring red rock peaks and vistas of mountains in all directions.

Residents enjoy a park-like setting replete with lakes, streams, ponds and waterfalls. Amenities include acres of maintained common ground, wilderness walking trails, tennis court, basketball pad, and on site storage for recreational vehicles. The Ranch Homeowners Association offers owners accountable management, community activities, and volunteer opportunities.

Whether blanketed in winter snow, laced with young spring green, scattered with a quilt of summer flowers, or dazzling fall foliage, The Ranch is a home for all seasons.
