Oleo Ranch
Cabin renovations are ready for 2022!! Book now!!

At 10,500 feet, Oleo Guest Ranch offers rustic Colorado vacation cabin rentals. The mountain cabins are located in a remote part of southwest Colorado (between Creede and Lake City) and are surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery the Rocky Mountains have to offer. Each secluded mountain cabin offers privacy and breathtaking views with comfortable accommodations. The remote and secluded cabins are all built overlooking a beautiful valley. The ranch’s water is drawn directly out of the mountain the cabins are built upon. Propane gas runs appliances, lights and heats water for the kitchens and bathrooms. Electricity is neither needed nor available, and we do enforce a no generator policy. Anything which needs to be plugged in will not be of use at Oleo. You will not miss the electricity. You are truly “off the grid” at this ranch, and your mind and body will thank you for it. Don’t worry, technology, electricity, restaurants and other conveniences are just a short beautiful drive over Slumgullion Pass into Lake City if need be. The cabins are pet friendly as well.

Recreational activities at Oleo include miles and miles of scenic trails for mountain hiking/climbing, photography, fishing, or just relaxing. Moose and Elk are often seen and several kinds of hummingbirds are always around the many cabin feeders. The colorful wildflowers in summer, the wind blowing through the aspens, and the spectacular fall foliage are nature at its best. Five stocked ponds and 1.5 miles of streams provide guests with private fishing, so beginners to avid fly fishermen will have ample opportunity to wet their lines. Peace and quiet is not something you have to seek out at Oleo… the wind blowing through the aspens will be the only thing you’ll hear while reading your book on the deck. There is zero light pollution at night so stargazing is one of the most incredible things you will ever witness. Also, look no further than Oleo to escape the heat of the summer. Even in the dog days of summer, the average temperature during the day is 70 and nights can drop below freezing. Day trip opportunities “off the ranch” are abundant- anything from climbing one of the seven 14K mountains, fishing the Rio Grande river, hiking the Continental Divide Trail, renting a jeep in Lake City and driving over Engineer Pass, as well as something as simple as having an ice cream cone, sitting on a Lake City bench. There is so much to see and do in one of the most beautiful areas of the Rockies. Thank you for taking a look at Oleo. We hope to see you there soon enjoying the simple life!


Hello Oleo Ranch Family,
Amanda and I and the rest of our family are beyond excited to begin our journey as the new owners of Oleo Ranch! We want to thank the previous owners for their development and stewardship of the property – Oleo Ranch is extremely special to its many loyal visitors due to the steadfast work and the passion of Ralph, Mark, Craig, Tracy and Doug. Together we are all working on a smooth transition of the ownership and operation of the ranch.
As avid outdoorsmen, we are committed to preserving the natural beauty and integrity of the ranch while also making improvements to make your stay more comfortable and enjoyable. Plans include cabin renovations, the addition of new common areas for guests to enjoy and added amenities such as fly fishing and horseback riding excursions. We look forward to communicating with you as these ideas come to fruition.
Many of you have already booked reservations for this summer. Jeremy and Rachelle Davis and their children will be there to greet you and ensure that you enjoy your stay. In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at info@oleoranch.com or by calling
