From the Zillow listing:


Tucked along the Elk River, this ranch has historically been used to host guests in cozy cabins and on a variety of adventures in the surrounding Zirkel Wilderness. The ranch extends over 1/6th of a mile on the Elk River with miles more very easily accessed on the adjacent public land. Fishing, hiking, riding, hunting and biking are all at your fingertips. The property includes a 3 bedroom main lodge, 5 guest cabins each with a private bath, a “saloon”, a horse barn, and other facilities on 38.84 acres that border national forest. For the investor or large family, 4 of the cabins have kitchenettes and can be used or rented separately. An outfitting permit allows the ranch to take guests on horseback to nearby Pearl Lake to enjoy a catered lunch followed by lake activities such as kayaking, paddle boarding, or fishing. This is a truly versatile opportunity to own and operate an adventure-based hospitality business, an investment property, or to convert the ranch to personal use.
