    Yellowstone IRL? You Can Now Rent Kevin Costner’s Colorado Ranch for $36,000 a Night

    While Kevin Costner’s character on Yellowstone refuses to sell his cattle ranch in Montana, the actor has no problem opening his 160-acre Colorado homestead IRL. In fact, the Dutton-esque dwelling is currently up for rent for a whopping $36,000 per night.  

    Dubbed Dunbar Ranch, Costner’s Aspen compound is aptly named after the lieutenant he played in the Oscar-winning film Dances With Wolves. He originally bought the parcel of land back in 2000, before turning it into the wilderness retreat it is today, reported the New York Post. The pastoral property sits at the base of Independence Pass, hidden amongst the Elk Mountain Range and secluded within a lush pine forest. In terms of accommodations, the spread has 12 bedrooms across its three stately residences with enough room to sleep over two dozen people. The standalone structures include a main house, village house and river house. There are also 24/7 caretakers, private lakes and a baseball field on-site. You know, just in case you wanted to live out your own Field of Dreams fantasy.

    The crown jewel, however, is the main estate which spans an impressive 5,800 square feet and is decked out with rustic decor resembling an upscale cabin. Think lots of exposed wood, warm oak ceilings and stone accents. In the living room, you’ll find a striking double-sided fireplace that will come in handy during the winter months. Even more amazing, though, is the primary suite, which has a secret trap door that leads down to a hidden hot tub with its own waterfall and jaw-dropping views of the Rockies. Because why not?

    When you’re not hitting the area’s iconic slopes, there’s plenty to do around Dunbar Ranch. Depending on the season, guests can go tubing down the sledding hill, spend the afternoon ice fishing or explore the property on cross-country skis. In the summer, kayaking, paddle boarding, hiking and biking are all on the table. Additional activities including horseback rides can also be arranged, allowing visitors to channel their inner cowboy.

    This 316-Acre Colorado Ranch Once Owned by Late Rocker Joe Cocker Just Listed for $18 Million

    Many of late music legend Joe Cocker’s greatest hits are songs that he put his own soulful spin on. Now one lucky buyer has the opportunity to add their own twist to the cover artist’s former Colorado abode. 

    Known as Mad Dog Ranch, the British rocker’s English Tudor–style estate sits on 316 acres in the picturesque North Fork Valley. The 15,873-square-foot manse and guest house were custom-built in 1994 by award-winning architect John D. Kelley for Cocker—who later passed away in 2014 at the age of 70—and his wife. Altogether, the lavish spread contains a whopping 15 bedrooms and 15 bathrooms, which justifies its hefty $18 million price tag. The ranch even comes with Cocker’s extensive art and book collection, plus a historic snooker table that once belonged to King Edward VII.

    “This is the most remarkable home I have ever walked into, and the attention to detail is uncompromising,” listing agent Dan Dockray of LIV Sotheby’s International Realty in Colorado tells Forbes. “It’s situated in the most serene and exclusive location on the West Elk Mountains; there is nothing else like it. The home is luxurious beyond expectations and yet still feels comfortable and unpretentious, an outstanding combination of vision executed in a dramatic setting.” 

    The stately main residence offers up seven suites, 10 bathrooms and four powder rooms. Among its most notable elements is a massive terrace that spans the length of the entire home with patios, seating areas and outdoor fireplaces. Internally, there are old-world details, including soaring vaulted ceilings, sweeping staircases and stone fireplaces. Elsewhere you’ll find a living room, a chef’s kitchen, a formal dining room, a cozy library and a billiards area.  

    Known as Mad Dog Ranch, the home was inspired by English Tudor–style estates.

    Outside, the grounds are the only thing able to one-up the château itself. Think sprawling gardens, 60 acres of irrigated pastures, horse stables and dual amusement park-sized water slides that lead to a large swimming pond. There are also hiking and biking trails that run throughout the property and the prized pad itself is surrounded by a national forest. “The setting is powerful, enchanting, and it provides the ultimate escape,” adds Dockray.

    Whoever gets to scoop up Cocker’s former digs, there’s a good chance they’ll be singing, “You are so beautiful, to me.”

    Terry Bradshaw Is Selling His Sprawling Oklahoma Ranch for $22.5 Million

    Apparently, even The Bradshaw Bunch needs to downsize.  

    A massive working ranch on the Oklahoma-Texas border belonging to legendary Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Terry Bradshaw is officially back on the market. But if you want to get your hands on the sportscaster-turned-reality TV star’s pastoral digs, you’ll have to go deep—into your wallet, that is. The 744-acre property is currently listed for $22.5 million after a buyer recently “failed to follow through, perform, fund and close the transaction,” according to brokers Icon Global. 

    It took decades for the four-time Super Bowl winner to build up his gigantic estate, which comprises a stately main residence, eight lakes, horse stables, cattle pens, riding trails and livestock breeding facilities. The ranch sits just north of the Red River, directly between Oklahoma City and Dallas/Fort Worth.

    “Tammy and I are both sad to leave this great big ranch and our wonderful home which has been our idyllic retreat of so many years, however, it is time that we slowed down a little, freeing us up to travel more, as well as enjoy new grandchildren, family, and other interests,” Bradshaw said in a press statement. 

    The ranch spans just shy of 800 acres.

    The sprawling main house, which offers 8,600 square feet of living space, exudes rustic charm with soaring wood-beamed ceilings, brick stone fireplaces and wood paneling. There are six bedrooms and eight bathrooms in total, plus a spacious outdoor patio with its own kitchen, bar, fire pit and sauna. There’s also a free-form swimming pool and spa for outdoor get-togethers. On that note, your guests can make themselves at home in either the 2,600-square-foot manager’s house or a four-bedroom bunkhouse.

    The ranch is ideal for animal lovers, too. You’ll find a two-story doghouse and, of course, plenty of room for your canines to roam. If you’re more into horses, the ranch’s equestrian facilities are top-notch, with a 20-stall show barn, a 12-stall stallion barn, a 50-stall mare barn with a laboratory, plus a covered arena.

    Elsewhere, there are numerous trails that wind throughout the property and can be used for a range of recreational activities, including walking, horseback riding or four-wheeling. Considering Bradshaw and his wife have been “inundated with requests to sell” over the years, any interested buyers best move fast.

    Golf Great Greg Norman Lists His 12,000-Acre Colorado Ranch for $40 Million

    The Shark is getting serious. Golf legend and serial entrepreneur Greg Norman is now laser-focused on selling his treasured 12,000-acre Colorado spread, Seven Lakes Ranch.
    Originally listed for $55 million as far back as 2011, and after excursions on and off the market ever since, the price is now down to a nice, round $40 million.

    “That original price was to say to any prospective buyer, ‘Hey, if you want it at that level, great. If not, that’s fine with me,’ But now it’s time. Time to move on,” the 65-year-old World Golf Hall of Famer tells Robb Report.

    He’s just re-listed it with Colorado big-ranch specialists Hall and Hall, and tasked the realtor’s big gun, Hall and Hall director and partner Brian Smith, with finding a buyer.
    “I’ve had a place in Colorado for 20 years. Had Seven Lakes since 2004. It’s been an amazing property for all the family to enjoy. And we really have made use of it. But now it’s a case of been there, done that. It’s time for someone else to enjoy it.”
    Norman, whose primary residence is in Jupiter, Fla., says he fell in love with Colorado’s Meeker Valley, 90 miles from Steamboat Springs, back in the late 1990s when he was commissioned to design a golf course in the area.
    While he ended up convincing the developer not to go ahead, he connected with the region so much he bought the 8,350-acre Dry Creek Ranch. Soon after, he expanded the property by acquiring the neighboring 3,000-acre Pollard Ranch.

    And when billionaire investor Henry Kravis, cofounder of KKR & Co. decided to sell his adjoining 244-acre spread in 2004, Norman didn’t hesitate, acquiring the land along with its massive 14,000-square-foot stone-and-log lodge.
    Since then the combined 11,900-acre Seven Lakes Ranch has been a year-round escape for Norman, his wife Kristen, and the ever-expanding Norman family.

    “Ten years ago, we started spending the entire summer out there. Then we’d go back in the winter. Now it’s probably 10 or 11 weeks a year,” says the golfer and CEO of The Greg Norman Company, which has 13 divisions and interests from sports clothing to fine wine to Wagyu beef jerky.

    The big appeal? The setting. Located in the White River Valley of Colorado’s Flat Tops Mountains, the ranch is a mecca for outdoor pursuits. From trout fishing in the two miles of the White River that runs through the property, to hiking and biking along the 80-or-so miles of trails and roads, to horse riding, clay shooting and hunting.

    “My wife and I love to ride horses, doing trail rides for three or four days at a time, and camping overnight. I grew up in the Australian Outback so I’ve always had an affinity with the outdoors.”

    The sprawling lakefront lodge has eight guest suites, a huge great room with a 30-foot-high vaulted ceiling and towering stone fireplace, a kitschy cowboy saloon and dance hall, a movie screening room with horse saddles for seats and a commercial-grade kitchen.

    Built in 1993 by Gordon Pierce, of Resort Design Architects who helped design Vail Village, the massive structure used more than 500 logs in its construction, each up to 45-feet in length and trucked in from Montana.

    When Kravis owned it, it had been used as a high-end sportsman’s retreat with room rates going for as much as $15,000 per week.

    “We did think about using it as a business venture,” Norman says. “With all its outdoor activities, it really would make a terrific executive retreat. But family use always came first.”
