Nestled in the Uintas and Wasatch Cache National Forests, Geronimo Ranch has perfect views from its 7200ft elevation. Before pilgrims settled these lands in the 1880's the region was home to the Ute indians and the abundant wildlife and Gambel Oak (thus the name Oakley).
Even though this area is known for the peaceful and serene setting, Butch Cassidy and many other gold seeking bandits had been known to hideout here and potentially find some success in the famed Rhodes Gold Mine located somewhere in the Kamas Valley.
Regardless of your mining skills, there is a ton of things to do within the 15 mile radius of Geronimo Ranch. Named for the famed Apache Warrior and our top of the mountain location. We were delighted to learn that the Mescalero meaning is "One Who Yawns" - which is a perfect way to look at our ranch after your exciting day outside. Our property has been recently renovated to give us the modern luxury and outdoor enthusiast twist that we love. The hosts practice Native American Healing and craft custom dreamcatchers that the tipi doubles for as a studio.
Since we are also real estate agents and developers, we spent quite a bit of time looking for the perfect location to make our dream house and though small we have found it in Geronimo Ranch. We sold our place in the city and headed towards the mountains to live here full time in 2016 and we have never looked back.
Our philosophy is to live with as little impact on our mother earth as possible but to use our home as a conduit of her beauty. There is cell reception, wi-fi, electricity readily available but do yourself a favor and unplug for the weekend in Geronimo fashion.
