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 lived 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 1600 square foot guest wing of the River House is a newly renovated space available for reservations starting June 2022, offering two additional large bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, and an open concept new kitchen cum living room, dining and 2 fire places plus laundry facilities. 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 venue 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. 100+ 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 a 16 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! The reservation includes only the rental of this Main Lodge and its surrounding garden and patio with a big hot tub on the deck. Holding any private event, party or wedding requires a separate booking and involves fees to book the grounds. Guests do have access to enjoy the Navajo river and scenic walks on the property.
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.
