Introducing Brown Ranch

The Brown Ranch is a special place just west of the current Steamboat Springs city limits. It’s a beautiful 534-acre property with meadows, bluffs, creeks and rolling hills that include stunning views of the ski area, the Continental Divide, the Sleeping Giant, and Emerald Mountain.

For more than a century, the Brown family farmed the land, producing oats and wheat, raising horses and generations of children. And for the last 14 years, it has laid fallow.

Now, thanks to the foresight and generosity of an anonymous donor who gifted this property to the Yampa Valley Housing Authority, our community has the opportunity of a lifetime.

Over time, this special place will become a series of vibrant, resilient, diverse, and welcoming neighborhoods. It can provide a wide variety of housing options and services designed by and for the Yampa Valley community.

And by delivering long-term affordable housing opportunities for Routt County workers, the Brown Ranch can help preserve the Steamboat character we all cherish.
