Wolcott/Bellyache Ridge/Red Sky Ranch

Located just 10 miles west of Beaver Creek, the quiet river town of Wolcott sits among some of the most picturesque landscapes in the Vail Valley. Known for years as the gateway to the ranches between Steamboat Springs and the Vail Valley, Wolcott has matured significantly over time. Now home to three private championship golf courses, the Vail Rod & Gun Club, numerous hiking and biking trails, and some of the countys best fly-fishing and whitewater, Wolcott has plenty to offer recreationally, yet it still remains a true small town. There is a bed and breakfast, a gas station, a market and a restaurant that make up the entire town. As a result, homeowners in the area are drawn by a quiet mountain retreat that they and their families can call their own. Within a 20-minute drive of Vail and Beaver Creek, Wolcott is not far from the luxuries of fine dining, shopping and world-class skiing and snowboarding, but far enough away to offer the feel of country seclusion. In the town of Wolcott, people of all walks of life gather at the outdoor Wolcott Yacht Club to enjoy great food, cool summer evenings and great live entertainment. A short drive from Wolcott is the 4 Eagle Ranch, a western ranch that attracts both tourists and locals for horseback riding, group events and great times.The Eagle Springs Golf Course was built in 1989 and is a private country club located in Wolcott. This club offers a par 72, 7,009 yard course with breathtaking panoramic views.One of the few housing opportunities in Wolcott, Bellyache Ridge resides in the hills above Wolcott. Quiet, peaceful and remote, Bellyache offers the pinnacle of mountain serenity. On the south side of the Eagle River Valley, lies the alpine community of Red Sky Ranch. Years of design preparation and a project price of $100 million place Red Sky Ranch in very exclusive company. This 780-acre high-end community has 87 homesites available featuring tremendous vista views, including overlooks of Castle Peak and the back bowls of Vail. While the views are spectacular, it is golf that makes Red Sky Ranch a truly one of a kind opportunity. Home to two of the finest golf courses in Colorado, Red Sky Ranch provides the perfect getaway for summer golf and winter skiing. The first of two golf courses at Red Sky Ranch was designed by Tom Fazio and the second by Greg Norman. Home ownership secures a place in the Red Sky Ranch golf club, which includes access to a private clubhouse and private golf range. Membership privileges also include play on each Red Sky Ranch course, and one of the two courses is reserved every day exclusively for member play.
