About The Ranch

‚ÄčThis remarkable piece of land is bordered to the East by the majestic Mount Zirkel Wilderness Area; on the North by the wild and scenic Elk River; and on the West by cattle ranches that extend all the way to Sand Mountain, and thousands more acres of National Forest.

There are 1500 acres on the Murphy-Larsen Ranch. The twelve home sites are located on the South Murphy-Larsen, a curving ridge that overlooks the Continental Divide. The home sites share an extensive network of trails that lead to National Forest and Wilderness lands. Homeowners have common ownership of the adjacent 875-acre North Murphy-Larsen.

The cattle on MLR are owned and operated by Doug and Adele Carlson and The Home Ranch.  Cattle grazing on Murphy-Larsen Ranch not only provide a great view but serve as a reminder that ranching and residential interests can be complementary. Homesites are protected by by perimeter fencing maintained by the homeowners association.  

The wrangling, hiking, and fishing guides at The Home Ranch are an invaluable resource for Homeowners and their guests as they explore the length and depth of their corner of the Elk River Valley.
