$1,150,000 / 159 Acres / Under Contract
The Rodear Ranch and Arena is nestled in the Wood River Valley, less than 10 miles from Crater Lake National Park. This valley is characterized by expansive irrigated pastures, cattle ranching, great views of the Cascade Mountain Range and blue-ribbon fishing.
The Rodear has a rich history of ranching, roping, premier cow dogs and cowboy culture. Productivity and natural beauty characterize this 158-acre property. Fenced and crossed fenced for rotational grazing, the property also has 141.9 acres of 1864 water rights. Fort Creek provides 43 acres of irrigation and 98.9 acres from Crooked Creek (the Crooked Creek water has not been regulated during the time this seller has owned the property). Approximately 40 acres is irrigated by K-Line Pods with buried mainline and the balance of the irrigation is applied by flood irrigation through a ditch system. The property is sprinkled with Ponderosa pine, aspen, and birch, providing a mix of year-round greenery and vibrant color through the changing seasons. The entire ranch is level and 3 sides are treelined.
The ranch home is a beautiful log cabin that graces the north end of the property near the largest of three ponds. The charming home features a welcoming covered front porch, an open floor plan with two bedrooms and two full bathrooms, beautiful wood beams, lodgepole railings and the rustic finishes you expect from a log cabin. The kitchen has tile counters, a propane range, and is open to the living and dining spaces. The living room has cathedral ceilings in traditional log cabin style. There is an impressive staircase that leads to an open loft and the master suite. The master suite is spacious with vaulted ceilings and great views of the ranch. Downstairs is the second bedroom, full guest bath and a large laundry room. Enjoy your morning coffee and beautiful sunrise from the back patio. Near the home is a shop and a detached garage.
The well-known Rodear Arena hosts roping and cutting horse events, Cow Dog Trials and training clinics throughout the year. The Arena has a PA system, judges stand, covered aluminum bleachers, lighting, roping chute, cow handling pens and staging area with over fifty stalls, warm up area, and abundant parking. There are two one-bedroom and one-bathroom cabins that can be used by event hosts, ranch hands or as vacation rentals. In addition to the arena, the ranch also has a conditional use permit for a campground.
The crystal-clear waters of Crooked Creek run the length of the ranch with its spring fed headwaters only a short distance north of the property, on the bordering Forest Service land. There are three ponds that add character and, historically, these ponds have been stocked with trophy trout for the fly fishing enthusiast. The backdrop to the east of the ranch is a timbered rimrock face that rises nearly 400 feet vertically, adding to the ranch's stunning beauty and natural privacy. The national forest land begins at the base of the rimrock on the east property line and provides access to thousands of acres of public lands for your recreational enjoyment. Local recreational opportunities include hunting, world class fly fishing, hiking, ATVs, snowmobiling in the winter and more. Both the Wood and Williamson Rivers are minutes away and provide outstanding fishing opportunities. Klamath Lake is also just a short drive and is one of Oregon's largest bodies of water. Elk and deer are known to frequent the ranch (Archery tags for deer and elk are available over the counter and rifle hunting is available by draw).
The Medford International Airport is just over an hour drive away, as are the conveniences and Medical services afforded by the Rogue Valley.
The adjacent Crater Lake Resort is also for sale from the same owner. It is eleven acres, complete with Creekside cabins, RV sites, tent camping, general store and owners/managers home. Estimate NOI of $150,000 annually.
History lovers would be fascinated by the many things to explore in the historic Fort Klamath area, a small portion of which exists right on the northern edge of this property.

"We appreciated Tim's hard work. We had 2 different real estate companies prior to meeting you, over the time of a couple years they each brought us 1 prospective buyer. You in turn brought us numerous prospective buyers along with several offers, with a final close in under 2 years. We feel that you had a knowledge of where and how to market our business so it was marketed in the right places and to the right people. As you well know when the sale was finalized it was at our asking price with little or no haggling.
We appreciate the fact that you were available 7 days a week, and willing to show the business even on a Sunday with very little notice. Tim Thank you once again.

"We were referred to Jason a few years ago. We were looking for our dream rural property, however, competition was high and inventory was low. Jason found us a great starter home until the right property came along. He continued to keep looking for us; one day we received a phone call that he “thinks he found the one.” We drove out to that day, and we immediately knew Jason was right ~ This was the dream property we had been waiting for! Jason stayed on top of every detail, and we can't thank him enough for listening to all of our needs and wants and finding the perfect property for our family. His attention to detail, care for his customers, integrity, understanding of the market, and work ethic shined every step of the way!"
