We offer numerous amenities and services to make your stay at Sohum Mountain Ranch a pleasure. We’re dedicated to blending comfort and convenience to provide you with the attention and luxury you deserve. 

Located in the exclusive Chromo valley, the Sohum Mountain Ranch is a nature lover’s paradise. "Chromo" in Greek means Colorful, which is how this scenic area was named by the Price family. The famous William Price stayed at what is today the River House when he originally settled in this area in the early 1900s.


The property has two homes- the Main Lodge that spreads across 7500 square feet with 7 bedrooms & 6.5 baths; and the River House,  which  sits on the banks of the Navajo river. The 2000 square foot guest wing of the River House is a newly renovated space available for reservations, offering two additional large bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, and a new kitchen w laundry. You get to soak in the 360 degree gorgeous views of the Banded Peaks  which are a part of the Continental Divide & the Navajo Peaks that stand as sentinels of the San Juan National forest. 


The Main Lodge of the Sohum Mountain Ranch is an exclusive property full of quaint surprises for the discerning traveller. Movie studios, advertising companies and fashion outfits have been using this space historically for photo shoots when it was called the Mountain Spirit Ranch before new ownership started in June 2019. With 30 foot high ceilings framing a gorgeous river stone fireplace, the living room sets the tone creating a welcome space with unique architectural details. 200 year old logs harvested from tobacco factories in Texas & the Carolinas, with tongue n groove details wow all guests as you soak in the luxurious appointments including an 18 seater custom dining room table, floor to ceiling windows, heated floors, 2 commercial kitchens & gadgets that would satisfy the most demanding chef plus a wine fridge to store your favorite vinos!


This 117 acre property sits at the base of the Continental divide about 27 miles from Pagosa Springs, CO or Chama, NM and about 1.5 hours from Durango, CO. Whether you are an avid hiker, star gazer, horse rider, naturalist or a bird watcher, this unique property will result in rich experiences of the local fauna and flora surrounded by national forests. Wildlife abounds with elk, deer, bear, bob cats & coyotes spotted frequently along with birds like the bald eagle, golden eagle, red tail hawks & humming birds, to name a few. If you are lucky you may spot the occasional mountain lion or wolf also. This is a non smoking property and no smoking is allowed on the premises or the surrounding land.


Meal Options: You can request for meal services or a private chef and plan a custom menu for an additional charge. If requesting such a meal plan in addition to the Main Lodge reservation, we can also offer delicious meals with vegetarian, gluten free, fish and dairy options and a separate plan can be created on request for a full service experience so you can focus on just enjoying your vacation. All prices listed under the Reservations tab reflect pricing for just renting the venue.


Special Events: This is the perfect venue for that intimate destination wedding, or family reunions, alumni meets & corporate retreats.  Yoga sessions and teacher training have been hosted here historically and its a popular destination for spiritual retreats and shamanic rituals or, you can just get away from it all and just slow down, recharge and rest here.


Our Mission is to be stewards for the nature around us and all products used are sustainably sourced & bio degradable. It’s a full service property where you can plan the services to your needs- either fully / partially catered or just do your thing.


Booking Options:  Guests can reserve the entire Main Lodge including all three levels or just the upper level that includes four grand bedrooms w ensuite custom soaker baths, a loft area sleeping up to 10 people,  a commercial kitchen with informal dining, the large formal dining area and the living room with the half bath that is framed by the 30 foot high custom fireplace. The Loft in the main house can also be used as an artist's studio or sleep an additional 10 people so if you have children in the group, they get their own little fun area. Custom packages can be designed on request.
