Property in detail
Originally built in the late 1970's, the Ranch has been well maintained over the years. The main lodge is used for entertaining and dining and includes a commercial kitchen, dining room, lounge, large open fireplace, games room, country bar, reading room and manager's suite.
The Ranch can provide accommodation for up to 44 guests in a variety of configurations. The majority of improvements are of log construction, with guests staying in one of the seven 2 bedroom cabins or a large 5-bedroom house (the Hill House). Further accommodation can be provided in a 3-bedroom house (the Creek House) that is currently used by the owners. Additional improvements consist of a hay barn, machine shop, sauna house and gym, stable and tack room, and a 4,000 foot grass airstrip. A ranch managers house and smaller home is also located on the Purjue Ranch.
Three diesel generators provide electricity on the Ranch, with water being provided by a large water reservoir and filtration system. All services are provided to the buildings underground, including propane. A significant amount of work has been completed in anticipation of constructing a Pelton wheel for a self-contained hydro generation system.
Approximately 300 acres of the Ranch are irrigated with a combination of wheel lines and flood irrigation. This produces one cut with approximately 450 and 850 lb bales. The Ranch can support up to 100 head of cattle.
The Ranch also has several water licenses on Elkin Creek, Vedan Lake, and other watercourses.
