Crested Butte Neighborhood Spotlight: Saddle Ridge Ranch
Saddle Ridge Ranch is located roughly halfway between Crested Butte and Mount Crested Butte. The location between the two towns makes it convenient to either head into Crested Butte for shopping or dining, or a day of skiing at Crested Butte Mountain Resort.One unique feature at Saddle Ridge is the shared horse stable and horse pastures, making Saddle Ridge an ideal choice for horse owners who wish to be near town. Views from Saddle Ridge are some of the best in the area, and include the ski area, the town of Crested Butte, Whetstone Mountain, and Red Lady bowl on Mount Emmons. The scenic Lupine trail, which has quickly become a local favorite, begins at Saddle Ridge Ranch. The trail winds through meadows and aspens before dropping down to the scenic Slate River valley near the mouth of Oh Be Joyful creek.
The Saddle Ridge subdivision has 18 homesites, and as of 2015 only one of them has been built on. To learn more about buying or selling a home or vacant land in Saddle Ridge, feel free to contact me anytime.
