Straddling the Smith Fork River Valley, mid-way between Aspen andTelluride sits a secluded 250 acre private mountain retreat with luxury homes and cabins; a great culinary tradition and renowned wine cellar; surrounded by over a million acres of uninhabited national forest and wilderness.

This place has a history of informal but elegant hospitality…. of legendary fireside gatherings dating back to the ‘30s, ‘40s and 50’s, where writers, artists, industrialists and adventurers swapped tales of the day’s ride or hooking the largest fish.

The big fish are still here, as are the horses, the splendid food and wine, and magnificent country, with stunning views in every direction. Towering mountains filled with aspens and pines, high mountain meadows filled with wildflowers and wildlife, high country lakes and streams filled with wild trout make a breathtaking environment.

If you want to spend some time in a private corner of the real Rocky Mountain West with first rate fly fishing and other outdoor activities, Smith Fork Ranch is for you. Best of all, you can have all this in a quiet, stunningly beautiful setting with superb cuisine and a wine cellar to match. There are so few places left that are so authentic, and yet so comfortable and accommodating.

Rates include all meals, snacks, non-alcoholic beverages, as well as numerous activities, games and amenities.  SFR has abundant facilities, spaces and staff to help you enjoy yourself.  While you are our guest “you have the run of the ranch”.

In addition, the entire ranch estate can be rented for weddings, family reunions and corporate retreats.
