The master suite located on the second floor has vaulted ceilings, fireplace and large bathroom.

The Rainy Mesa Ranch is currently stocked with cattle, and the headquarters, fences, roads, and rangeland are in good condition. From Reserve the ranch has 24 miles of paved access and 3 miles of gravel USFS roads and 5 miles of gravel county road to the headquarters. While portions of the ranch can be accessed by truck or ATV, the ranch is predominantly a horseback ranch. The Rainy Mesa is being offered turnkey with 300 head of cattle and a full complement of equipment to operate the ranch including backhoe, trucks, trailers, generators, welder, fuel storage tanks and all the necessary tools and supplies to run an efficient outfit. In addition to a being a great cattle ranch, this would make an excellent hunting/outfitters ranch or just your own little slice of heaven!
