The Historic Dell Fork Ranch – Bondurant, WY

February 27, 2012 by Haley Leave a reply »

This jewel of a historic ranch has everything the legendary West has to offer, including two miles of private trout-filled streams packed into its 127 acres. The Historic Dell Fork Ranch is 30 miles from Jackson Hole, which offers four golf courses, luxury dining and world-class skiing. The pioneering traditions have been preserved on the Dell Fork, including the original homesteader’s cabins, barns and bunkhouse.  They are beautifully restored while incorporating all of the modern day conveniences.  The Historic Dell Fork Ranch also boasts a newly-constructed, custom handcrafted log cabin for guests.  The ranch is located at the base of the 11,600-foot Gros Ventre Mountains and is directly adjacent to the Bridger-Teton National Forest and Wilderness areas. Hiking and equestrian trailheads lead directly from the ranch to spectacular waterfalls, hot springs and rarely fished timberline lakes.  The adjacent public lands also offer approximately 4 additional miles of trophy trout fishing on the creeks, as well as a portion of the Hoback River, contiguous to Dell Fork’s 2 miles of private water.  And for the trophy big game hunter, moose, elk, Mule deer and Rocky Mountain sheep are in your front yard. The working cattle ranch portion of the Dell Fork is supportively managed by its cowboy-rancher neighbors who still harvest the hay with big draft horses.  The current owners have improved the property’s ranching components via new fencing, as well as new horse corrals at the ranch headquarters.  The design of these corrals was a collaboration with the owner and an Amish carpenter, who constructed the new facilities using primarily old world carpentry tools.  The master craftsman’s attention to detail is quite evident.  The Historic Dell Fork Ranch quietly balances life with the homesteader and outdoorsman tradition in a contemporary and undemanding place to relax and enjoy the West at its best. Offering price is $3,995,000.
