 Winding River Ranch is a family owned ranch established in 1963 and is located just a few miles from the town of Grand Lake, CO.  Elaine Busse dreamed of owning a ranch and when she came to see the Winding River Ranch over 52 years ago she knew this would be her home.  The beauty of the ranch and the peaceful feeling she felt when she came to see the property stole her heart.  She and her husband Bob went to work to make the ranch what it is today, a beautiful, welcoming guest ranch with rustic elegance.  The ranch is complete with visiting wildlife, charming cabins,  pool, hot tub,  pens for visiting horses, fire pits and unmatched views.
