A sublime parcel of the American West, Inyanga Ranch consists of over 530 acres of beautiful river frontage, ponds, meadows and historic cabins at the end of a box canyon, protected by steep sandstone cliffs that rise up to the Flat Tops Wilderness in western Colorado.
Named after a national park in the owner’s native Zimbabwe, Inyanga is bordered on three sides by National Forest Land and BLM, and accessed by a narrow road for maximum privacy, tranquility and security. At its center is a jewel box of a house by award-winning Colorado architect Jack Snow of RKD Architects, carefully crafted in a simple palette of metal, cedar and tones of cut granite to echo the surrounding cliffs and blend into the environment.
Two miles of Canyon Creek flow through the ranch providing abundant source water for nine acres of spring-fed ponds that teem with three species of trout.
This is a ranch opportunity you must see if you’re looking for the ultimate retreat.

Water. Water. Water.
Fishing: Truly a fishing paradise, Inyanga Ranch is blessed with some of the best water resources and amenities of any ranch in the west. Endless fishing opportunities abound from its 2 miles of Canyon Creek, multiple stocked ponds and nearby Colorado River and Roaring Fork Valley. A little further trip will get you on the Green River and just over the Flat Tops from the ranch is Marvine Creek and the White River which flows through Meeker, CO on its way through two major fishing resorts.
Waterfowl: The ranch looks like a giant waterpark from the air and attracts an abundance of waterfowl. The current owners do not hunt the waterfowl but the potential for hunting is excellent.
Canyon Creek is the largest water flow from of the adjoining Flat Tops Wilderness Area that covers millions of acres of Western Colorado recreation area and home to the largest Elk Herd in North America. 15 minutes away you can float the Colorado in the morning, be back for lunch and spend the afternoon on miles of private fishing in Canyon Creek for three species of trout. If you want to catch an evening hatch on the beautiful well stocked ranch ponds, they are literally off the back porch.
Irrigation: Inyanga’s abundant water rights derive from Canyon Creek which flows through the ranch for 2 miles, servicing 9 scenic ponds and a state of the art newly constructed water delivery system. The system includes all new head gates, underground pipes and a large pumping station that feeds the hay meadows as well as the entire ranch. The ranch gets its agricultural tax status by harvesting over 75 acres of lush grass hay. The entire ranch was replanted in selected pasture grasses to eliminate unwanted species and is on its way to becoming weed free through diligent management.
Climate: Inyanga’s relatively low elevation, 6,300 feet, and long growing season, offer endless growing opportunities and year-round recreation activities. Near the blossoming Colorado wine region, there is a possibility to plant and harvest multiple types of grapes.
Pristine Private Perfect: The ranch has all the attributes you would want in a perfect ranch retreat: The ultimate privacy of a box canyon surrounded by public land, but mostly inaccessible by outside intrusion. Accessibility to nearby Aspen and Vail and the largest county maintained airport in western Colorado that is minutes from the ranch. Enjoy pristine improvements, either newly built or recently renovated, in a desirable year-round climate rich in the varied recreation amenities of Western Colorado.
