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

This lot is almost reminiscent of Northern Colorado as being the slowest part of the state to receive settlers, due to being cut off by mountain ranges, it has been left to herds of cattle and a few venturesome spirits who care to brave solitude and privation. It’s this adventuresome spirit that led James H. Crawford and friends to traverse the upper Yampa in 1874. Advice from a lone prospector told them of a wonderful site with warm springs; one he called “Steamboat Springs”. Crawford and a friend decided to follow the river and find the springs. Enamored with the spot, James put up a “notice of location” and the stone foundation for a future house. The entire Crawford family soon came out and settle in Steamboat in 1875. It was from one isolated cabin, a village slowly grew.


A Western Country Club…Reimagined

Thanks to conservation policies, a neighbor will never be in view on this peaceful lot. Without building, this piece of property could be your very own piece of history. With ownership at Marabou, you’re entitled to all of the amenities available at Marabou. Take advantage of one of our Guest Cabins along the Elk River, and stay for up to four weeks a year, and you’ll never have to build on your pristine land. Or if you are feeling the call of the west, you can build a home and live year-round on the ranch. With every season offering so much you’ll want to watch the landscape change. On a green summer morning visit The Barn, saddle up, and ride up to your property, hitch your horse on your own plot of land and enjoy a picnic, take in the view of Sleeping Giant and recall days gone by. In the winter watch the plentiful herds of elk and mule deer meander through white powder pawing through the snow as they graze. Enjoy relaxing and knowing these lands are being preserved and protected in keeping with traditions of our forefathers.
