Conscientious design by Architect Robert Hawkins

Located just 25 minutes from Steamboat Springs and 5 minutes from Stagecoach Lake, this 35 acre mountain paradise is quiet, beautiful and soothing to the soul. Views of Stagecoach Lake and Youngs Peak and a mountain-top yurt with firepit are perfect for watching the sunset and roasting marshmallows.

The master bedroom opens to the sound of the water feature and mountain flowers in the backyard; a perfect place for morning yoga and meditation.

Sit with a book on the lovely wraparound porch while taking in the beauty and the views. The only sounds you will hear are the songs of the birds in the trees.

The beautiful, one-of-a-kind, 4,565 sq. ft. home with caretaker’s unit is energy efficient and eco-conscious by design. Architect Robert Hawkins utilized straw bale-wrapped timber frame for the home and was built specifically for the lot it sits on. Inside the home wood, stone and plastered straw work beautifully together creating an inviting and warm atmosphere. The timber frame was sourced from fallen douglas fir thus minimizing the number of live trees used.

Radiant floor heat warms the home while a new HE boiler with side-arm water heater makes for an efficient and cost effective heat supply.

Whimsical kitchen

The beautiful 36′ x 48′ barn with 12′ overhangs on the south and north sides provide quality housing for large animals complete with a heated vet room. Upstairs is a gorgeous 1,400 square foot apartment.

Lynx Basin Ranch was a former alpaca ranch but the barn stalls are equipped for horses as well.

Whether you are looking for a small ranch for raising animals, horse property for the family or space for a zen retreat, Lynx Basin Ranch has boundless opportunities.


Note: Expand to a 76 acre property with the purchase of the 41 acre parcel next door.
