The Ranch on the River

‘Whether it’s the size of the sky, the scent of the earth or the power of the river,
Marabou pulls you in.Tucked in a graceful bend of the Elk River,
Marabou is the essence of comfortin an authentic western setting.”

Marabou is now completed, and 43 of 62 homesteads have sold as of July 2011. Due West Land, LLC picked the planners and architects, then hired contractors and supervised construction of over $55M in amenities and infrastructure. Construction took two years. Sales began in 2006 before construction was completed. Marabou is financed and owned by Elk River Partners, LLC.

Surrounded by over 1,717 acres of picturesque ranch land and open space, just 62 homesteads now grace the Marabou landscape. Carefully chosen in prime locations, each homestead is its own private refuge, nestled among vegetation and valleys to maximize privacy and seclusion.

The ranch offers a beautiful sense of harmony with the land. Preservation, sustainability and stewardship are Marabou’s defining characteristics. More than 1300 acres of land are preserved as open expanses of land for perpetuity.

Marabou has already received awards from the City of Steamboat Springs, the Environmental Protection Agency, and was awarded the Golden Nugget Award for the best public/private recreation amenity building.  Marabou is financed and owned by Elk River Partners, LLC.

Marabou residents enjoy over two miles of private trout fishing on the Elk River, the luxury of the magnificent River House Lodge on the banks of the Elk River, the Downstream Spa, owners cabins, the River’s Edge Fitness Center, 20 miles of trails and the fully equipped Barn and Equestrian Center.
