There are multiple historic ranch buildings and two very livable renovated residences on the ranch. Stunning Mt Massive and Mt Elbert the two highest summits in Colorado and the Rocky Mountains dominate the view from the ranch. The stunning views from Lake Fork Ranch are dominated by the two highest peaks in the Rocky Mountains, Mount Elbert, and Mount Massive.
