Lake George, Colorado and Teller County Ranches and land for sale

Lake George was established as a railroad stop for the Colorado Midland Railway. The trains would stop to pick up ice that was cut from George Lake which ended up giving the town its name. In the early 1900s, farmers and ranchers in the area began raising potatoes in addition to raising cattle.

Today there are still large ranches in the area but few still raise cattle as the primary use. Most are utilized primarily as recreational and hunting ranches. The area is however very popular area for horse properties. There are numerous horse properties ranging from 35 acres to several hundred acres.

The area is a popular area to live given the close proximity to recreational spots such as Summit County Ski resorts, hundreds of thousands of acres of public land, as well as some of the best fishing in the states.
