About Cedar Mesa Ranches

Welcome to Cedar Mesa!

Cedar Mesa Ranches, located in the Four Corners region of southwest Colorado, sits just north of US Highway 160, directly across from the entrance to Mesa Verde National Park. This 2,000-acre development comprises 139 properties – ranging in size from five acres to nearly 50 acres. Each lot is buildable, has full underground utilities including water, and fronts on county roads maintained by the nonprofit Cedar Mesa Ranches Homeowners Association (CMRHOA). Currently, all properties have been purchased and primary residences or second homes have been constructed on nearly two thirds of the sites. Covenants monitored by the HOA restrict certain uses of the land in order to preserve the natural beauty, solitude, and overall environmental quality of the area.

Local terrain is mostly pinon / juniper and sage forest, situated at an average elevation of 7,000 feet, largely surrounded by Bureau of Land Management and state property. Wildlife abounds, including deer, elk, wild turkey, coyote, black bear, lynx, and mountain lion. The area is characterized by spectacular views of the La Plata Mountains, Mesa Verde’s Point Lookout, Sleeping Ute Mountain, and Utah’s Abajo Range. The close proximity to area attractions such as Mesa Verde, Ute Mountain Tribal Park, Hovenweep, Crow Canyon Archaeological Center, and Canyon of the Ancients – as well as the towns of Durango, Mancos, Cortez, Dolores, Telluride, Ouray, and Silverton – make this community an excellent investment location, characterized by sunny, temperate weather, a wide variety of recreational choices, and a friendly western ambiance.
