DISCOVER THE SECRET…Indian Peak Ranch MountainTop Hideaway…exceeding expectations since 1995…

Congratulations...You found gold! As a recent guest said...We felt like how the '49ers must have felt when they discovered gold!

The area's best-kept secret, this gorgeous hideaway with million-dollar 100-mile views, is perched atop a mountain on a unique 122-acre ranch. This spectacular piece of paradise is perfect for a discreet ROMANTIC GETAWAY or HONEYMOON.

For those that are looking for a more active getaway, this property offers lots of acreage for off-trail hiking and exploring, birding and nature photography. You might also stumble upon one of the two historic gold mines on the property!
