A private community of 40 acre high country ranches surrounded by spectacular mountain ranges
Elk Valley Ranch is a secluded, lush high country land with spectacular mountain views, ideal year-round weather, rich soil, abundant water supply, and is surrounded by world class recreational opportunities, with convenient shopping and services nearby. At 6,500’ elevation Elk Valley Ranch has some of the most spectacular weather in northern Arizona. Enjoy cool summer days punctuated by occasional afternoon showers. Winter at the Ranch brings crisp sun drenched days accented by a few gentle snowfalls. This is unusually diverse ranch land with rich sandy loam soil, and water rights to the largest water supply in northern Arizona. Flower and vegetable gardens are rewarded with abundant harvests. Apple, pear, peach, apricots and other fruit trees flourish in this favorable weather/soil/water environment. These conditions are also perfect for raising horses or other livestock.
“The land was spectacular and the weather perfect. We love our ranch!”
Jim and Patty Waite, Las Vegas, Nevada
Choose your perfect ranch terrain whether it be heavily wooded throughout, blends of trees and meadowland, dramatic ridgetop overlooks or all rich pastureland. Many Elk Valley Ranch properties border scenic State Trust Lands. Just 15 miles west of the Ranch is St. Johns, AZ, a charming country town with ample shopping, services, restaurants and medical facilities. This pioneer town stays close to its roots with many country festivals along with an annual rodeo and a spectacular 4th of July celebration. Lyman Lake State Park is just a short hop away. This huge, 1,500 acre lake offers excellent fishing (trout, largemouth bass, catfish, walleye, crappie). A short drive from Lyman Lake and you enter the gateway to Arizona’s famed White Mountain recreation area. This spectacular high country wonderland includes the massive Apache Sitgreaves National Forest with its sparkling lakes and streams. Excellent fishing, boating, hunting, skiing, sledding and hiking are all here to enjoy. This lush, spectacular valley is a natural sanctuary for a variety of wildlife. Elk, deer, and antelope are residents as are a wide variety of bird species. Land ownership opportunities of this quality in the west are rare. As an Elk Valley Ranch owner you can declare your independence from metropolitan chaos and escape to a quiet, secluded, enriched life for you and your family for generations to come.
