Land Map

This overview map is a great way to get the lay of the land at Marabou. As you can see, every site has it’s own benefits and personality. We warmly welcome you to your luxury ranch community.


lot story

Just past the Sleeping Giant to the north,  you can sometimes see Sand and Saddle mountains on a clear day off in the distance. When viewed from certain angles, Saddle Mountain is perhaps the most dramatic peak in the Elkhead Mountains in North Routt. Unique from most mountain ranges, the Elkhead Mountains run west to east as opposed to north and south. It is impossible to describe the general forms of the peaks because they are all so different. However, if you ask our resident wrangler, Saddle Mountain is the one that looks most like a saddle.


A Western Country Club…Reimagined

Regardless if a foundation is ever laid, your Marabou ownership guarantees a minimum of four weeks in one of the Guest Cabins, and the ability to take full advantage of any of the amenities Marabou has to offer year round! We like to think of it as all of the best parts of a country club lifestyle, only better!

Now that there’s no need to feel rushed to use your time at Marabou, you can relax knowing you have all the time in the world to take a lesson from one of our Master Fly Fishing Guides, or saddle up to the lodge saloon to tell your tale about the trout you caught! After a day of mastering your new craft, cozy up with the family in the state of the art Theater. Enjoy watching one of the more than 450 movie choices on the Kaleidescape System on the high-definition, 14-foot curved screen.

After a day of fly fishing and an evening at the movies, you’ll be ready to settle down like the giant himself. Dream of trout nebbing in the soft light of morning and grazing cattle as you slumber until the next sunrise over Marabou Ranch.

27225 Cowboy Up Road

Seclusion and solitude with a dramatic view of downtown Steamboat Springs and the ski mountain below make this site an elevation oasis. Arguably one of the most exclusive views on Marabou Ranch, this lot will never see another neighbor in its vista other than the occasional bald eagle coasting the ridgelines.
