The Beaver Creek Ranch, just west of Big Horn and Sheridan, Wyoming, and perfectly situated in the foothills of the beautiful Bighorn Mountains, is truly spectacular, exceptional and private. The word legacy is perhaps too often used when describing ranches, but in this case, a true legacy ranch will be passed on to the next steward. In an area where true legacy ranches seldom come on the market, this offering represents an opportunity of a lifetime for someone who has their heartstrings pulled by the Bighorn Mountains and her lovely foothills.
It’s the consummate Big Horn ranch, complete with unparalleled privacy without being remote and the most uninterrupted and beautiful views of the Bighorn Mountains you will find anywhere. The exquisite homes harmoniously complement the landscape, which is filled with all wildlife indigenous to the area and an agricultural component of pleasing hay fields. The 1,950-acre ranch comes complete with good water rights for irrigation, excellent barns and out-buildings, ponds for fishing and plenty of trophy game like elk, mule deer and white-tail deer, not to mention game birds and many other species from a well-protected natural environment.
This ranch supports a herd of 120 cows and has ample irrigation and water rights. Grazing has been managed in harmony with the wildlife for generations and all the past stewardship of the ranch is reflected in its healthy soils and rich habitat.
This is a premium ranch in a polo hotbed. The Beaver Creek Ranch would make an ideal location for a polo field since this area is already one of the premier polo attractions during the summer months. The Big Horn area has two polo venues each summer; one at the Flying H Polo Club and the other at the Big Horn Polo Club. Since 1893, polo has had a presence in Big Horn, and today it is steadily growing with new players finding the high quality of life in Sheridan and Big Horn to be exceptional. Several patrons have recently purchased their own ranches for polo and to enjoy all that this area of Wyoming has to offer.
The Sheridan area is synonymous with high quality of life. And although the area isn’t as prominent as Jackson Hole, it’s also much more subdued and genuinely relaxed. We have coined the phrase “cowboy-cosmopolitan”, which we think perfectly describes the ambiance and level of sophistication without the attitude. It’s still much as it always has been, casual, real and where handshakes still mean something. People really do make the difference here. The friendliness and unpretentious cowboy culture add to the flavor of the community and make the natural beauty of our landscapes even more inviting. Once you’re here, you’ll learn why those who live here wouldn’t trade it for anything.
Speaking of what else Wyoming has to offer; we have the most “tax-friendly” state with our very low taxes. There are no personal or corporate state income taxes here and there are no state capital gains taxes.
