Whetstone Mountain Ranch
A 260 acre ranch that has been divided into eight home sites. Most of the property is still used for agricultural purposes and provides a lavish amount of open space for all owners to enjoy. There are several private ponds scattered throughout and fishing rights on the Slate River are afforded to each owner.
Hidden Mine Ranch
Regarded as one of the premier, residential development sites in Gunnison Valley, located less than two miles from the town of Crested Butte and five miles from the ski slopes, the 756 acres of land start with ranch properties and climb the gentle, aspen covered northeastern slope of Whetstone Mountain. Most of the 35 acre sites offer spectacular views of Mount Crested Butte and the mountains in the northern valley.
Hidden Mine Ranch is located in Crested Butte’s newest gated community with 550+ acres of common land. National Forest access is just south of town at the base of Whetstone Mountain and offers horseback riding, snowmobiling, extensive trails and historical cabins on site including Buckley Mine site just to name a few key features of this unique subdivision. This spectacular area offers 300+ feet of the Slate River frontage and 360 degree views of the surrounding mountains.
Improvements include a substantial road system, an attractive entry area, and power, phone and cable access. Hidden Mine Ranch is convenient to the area’s amenities yet still perfectly secluded between Whetstone Mountain Ranch on the northeast and the Gunnison National Forest on the southwest.
Nineteen owners share 588 acres of common land with miles of trails for horseback riding, hiking, biking, skiing and snowmobiling. Exclusive access to well defined trails to the historic Buckley Mine Site, to lakes on the upper property and to the Slate River complete this as a self contained outdoor recreation site. And if that isn’t enough for the nature enthusiast, the Gunnison National Forest is located along the southwest border of Hidden Mine Ranch and spans two miles in length. Step over this boundary to additional meadows, trails and incredible views.
