Flying Horse Ranch

About the Ranch

Home on the Range

The centerpiece of the Flying Horse Ranch is the 10,711-square-foot lodge. With a price-point of close to $800 per square foot, this incredible structure was built in British Columbia using massive white cedar logs and reconstructed on Horseshoe Lake. Without question, it is one of the most impressive log lodges built in North America, with onyx chandeliers, Persian carpets, vaulted ceilings, restored hardwood floors, and roaring fireplaces.

Multiple seating areas allow for numerous pockets of conversation, regardless of the size of the guest list. Buddy up to the western bar for your favorite refreshments, polish your skills at the pool table, nestle into a leather daybed with a book, or share a glass of wine with friends in front of the hand-carved fireplace. There is no wrong choice here at Flying Horse Ranch.

Cozy Lodge Living

The main lodge offers two masterpiece masters, both with ensuite bathrooms and fireplaces. One room showcases a 10-foot-high intricately-carved fireplace, thick rugs, candelabra, antique furniture, an oversized king bed with custom bedding, and double leather chaise. Indulge in the master bathroom’s copper soaking tub, eight-foot double shower, and double granite vanity sinks with mosaic basins.

The other master suite is a complete apartment on the second floor of the lodge with sweeping views from the deck of the plains below, with equally opulent furnishings as its counterpart. Three other guest rooms complete the lodge, each with their own personality and individual delights.

Ranch Life Living

Beyond the lodge, the Flying Horse Ranch includes two lakefront cabins, and a ranch house. The log cabins sit on the shores of Horsehoe Lake, both with decks for enjoying the view. The cabins include a downstairs bedroom, living area, and full kitchen, with a sleeping loft above. To get even closer to nature, Flying Horse also includes a Fish Camp nestled in the pines near Baker Lake in the north forty. Two canvas tents sit atop wooden platforms. The latest addition to the ranch is the 7,492sf log barn. It comes equipped with extensive equestrian facilities, including eight stalls, bathing booth, tack room, loft hay storage, workshop, heated office, and restroom.

3,688 Acres of Glorious Ranchland

Purchased by Thomas Hyatt in 1883, the Flying Horse Ranch became and has remained a working cattle ranch to this very day. The Flying Horse Ranch and the surrounding National Forest offer ample opportunities to see almost every big game animal in the state including elk, mule deer, antelope, bear, and mountain lion. The ranch sits right on the migratory path for Elk and supports great numbers of animals during the winter and spring on the meadows. Jefferson Creek traverses the ranch, with plenty of small browns and brook trout just a cast or two away. The ranch land itself is a precious, protected space, with full water rights from the pre-1900s, some of Colorado’s most significant wetlands, and the highest concentration of rare plants in the lower 48 states.

About Jefferson, Colorado

The Flying Horse Ranch is a part of South Park, the grassland basin with an elevation of almost 10,000 feet. It covers 1,000 square miles around the headwaters of the South Platte River. The ranch sits 60 miles southwest of Denver, 97 miles northwest of Colorado Springs, and 37 miles southeast of Breckenridge.

The land is an outdoor lover’s dream, with countless streams for fly-fishing, trails for hiking, rocks for climbing, mountains for skiing, and horses for riding. Breckenridge, Keystone, and Denver are all an easy — and beautiful — drive from the ranch for shopping or dinner out.
