The Wilson Ranch: Gorgeous Cattle Ranch House in Gypsum Valley

Space 3,000 sq ft
Property type lodge
Minimum Stay 3 - 4 nights


About the property

The Wilson Ranch is a modern log home built in 1960 but it has been kept up to be a comfortable and spacious retreat. You can also recognize this ranch from its brand 'Triangle Lazy V'. This log home resides in the beautiful Gypsum Valley (near Eagle, CO) and overlooks a working cattle ranch. The Wilson Ranch is a 3000 square foot picturesque log home that will truly help you feel you are in the heart of Colorado while still being close to grocery stores and amenities. In the ranch you can spread out and enjoy a large great room, fully equipped kitchen, outdoor fireplace deck, huge grass lawn and picnic tables, gas grill, foosball table, Direct TV, wifi and lots of space to enjoy with your family or friends.

You can have fun hanging around the ranch with recreational activities on-site: hiking, stream or lake fishing, stream-hike, or you are only moments away from some of the most breathtaking sights Colorado has to offer. It is also close to major ski resorts: Beaver Creek 25 min., Vail 35 min., and Copper Mountain 55 min. Other recreational activities you will find nearby: hiking, mountain biking, hunting, Glenwood Canyon Hanging Lake, Glenwood Springs (Olympic-size mineral pool, Glenwood Caverns, Amtrak train), Fulford Cave, fishing (lake and stream), Sylvan Lake State Park, zip line adventures, horseback riding, jeep tours and much more!

It is 1.5 miles to closest grocery store and only 2.5 miles from the international Eagle/Vail airport (EGE) where a car can be rented.

This log home is a haven where you can recharge your batteries and make wonderful memories. I truly believe there is no better and more peaceful place to be than looking over the gorgeous Eagle Valley on the lawn of the Wilson Ranch. But don't take my word for it, come see for yourself!

About Craig Wilson

My name is Craig Wilson. I coordinate the operations and reservations of family and guests staying at the Wilson Ranch. My grandfather build the ranch house in 1962 and operated a cow/calf operation of 160 head of cattle. Since that time, the ranch has been passed from one generation to another from my grandfather to my father and now to me any my siblings.

We have a strong bond as a family so the ranch is a place where families can come, relax and have fun together. Our family heritage places high priority on having guests and making them feel comfortable. Our guest books at the ranch bear this out.

What makes this lodge unique

The Wilson Ranch is a quiet place with great vistas from any window and provides room for families and friends to gather together. Depending on the time of the year, you may see the cattle grazing nearby. It is especially fun to watch the calves during calving season March through May.

Another Outstanding Stay at the Wilson Ranch House

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at the Wilson Ranch House. The first time was back in July of 2015. This time, we were able to enjoy a family Thanksgiving together in this beautiful home. There isn't a single thing the Wilson family hasn't thought of to help visitors enjoy their time in Gypsum. As locals, my husband and I have really appreciated the opportunity to have friends / family visit us in Gypsum and have a place to stay close by. It is a house that comfortably fits a large group and is so well appointed that guests do not have to worry about a thing! Thank you, again, for opening up your house to us!!

A Great Spot to Spend Time in Colorado!

  • 5 of 5

Me and 11 of my Ragnar Relay Race teammates rented this location for the Colorado Ragnar in August of 2017. The Wilson Ranch was well located for our purposes and in a beautiful area. The house was rustic without being run down and had gorgeous views from the deck and many of the rooms. The stars at night were a definate plus and the ranch is located just near enough to Gypsum and Eagle to access restaurants, grocery stores, etc. Just a fabulous place to spend some time, particularly if you are traveling with 10 or more people.

Wonderful, peaceful and perfect

  • 5 of 5

Had our annual family getaway at The Wilson Ranch House July 29th through August 1st. We knew we picked the right spot Saturday evening when we all sat around the fire pit talking and laughing. Craig was so helpful, the house was just as advertised. Sitting on front porch drinking morning coffee and looking at the beauty was just what most of us needed. Thank You Craig Wilson for allowing us to share You home.

  • 5 of 5

The Wilsons were quick to respond to any questions. The Wilson Ranch was perfect for us. We were there for my daughters wedding near by. The Ranch had plenty of space for family and friends to stay at for he wedding. It was very clean and had all the essentials. We loved cooking meals as a family and having the space to relax. Thanks Wilson family. We are hoping to return someday!

The Wilson Ranch is a great place for making memories!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a winter-wonderland weekend at the Wilson Ranch house with our two sons and their families for an early Christmas celebration. The outside temperature dipped well below zero, but we were warm and cozy inside as we enjoyed this spacious house. Our grandkids all slept in the basement where they played foosball and darts long after the rest of us had gone to bed in the comfy kingsize beds on the upper level. The kitchen was well equipped for preparing meals for a large crowd and it was great that all 13 of us could enjoy eating at the long dining room table together. It's hard to describe the incredibly beautiful views from the large windows of the horses and cattle in the midst of the snowy pastures and against a backdrop of the snow covered mountains - so peaceful and serene. The ranch is surprisingly close to the town of Gypsum which means groceries and restaurants are easily accessible. We would love to stay there again during the summer so that we could take advantage of the outdoor deck and dining areas. Our grandsons climbed up the snowy ladder to check out the awesome treehouse, but it was just too cold to play up there during our stay! We made some happy memories being together and enjoyed every minute of being in such a comfortable house. And thanks to Craig Wilson for welcoming us so warmly with his emails and helpful information.
