Heather Creek Ranch – Saratoga, Wyoming
3,015 Acres of Productive and Beautiful Summer Range - Saratoga, Wyoming
The Heather Creek Ranch, first settled in 1886, has been in only two strong ownerships over the last 77 years.
Its location in the grand Upper North Platte River Valley – possibly Wyoming’s most desirable big-game hunting and fly-fishing destination – affords the next fortunate owner a rare opportunity to join one of the Nation’s most admired fraternities – cattle ranching in the Great American West!
This beautiful and authentic ranch possesses strong water rights and is a sea of high-protein summer grass which “hardens” in August and September to reliably put 200-pound gains on quality yearling steers.
Heather Creek is a simple operation – five months a year – no expensive haying machinery and equipment – no challenging calving season. The next successor may choose to further simplify life by leasing the Ranch to a reputable rancher in the Valley who wouldn’t need to occupy the homes.
The Ranch owns an astounding 138-acre parcel of land within the Medicine Bow National Forest about six miles south of Headquarters which contains a stunning 37-acre lake virtually surrounded by stands of conifers.
With depths reaching 55 feet, trout winter over nicely and grow to good sizes. A small cabin provides enjoyable shelter for exhilarating fly-fishing and heart-thumping big-game hunting.
The working improvements are well-maintained with good fencing plus easily accessed shipping corrals and scales. A four-bedroom home built in 1910 was remodeled and is used by the Owners every Summer. It is complimented by a comfortable two-bedroom guest home built in 2010 which enjoys great views.
ONLY 20 MINUTES FROM AN 8,800-FOOT WELL-MAINTAINED AIRPORT CAPABLE OF HANDLING LARGE JETS – SARATOGA IS HOME TO THE RENOWNED OLD BALDY CLUB.
