Rio Blanco County Real Estate
Rio Blanco County real estate stretches from the Utah border to just west of Yampa. Many homes for sale along Highway 8 reach from the eastern edge of the county to Meeker and beyond. In the remote areas on the east side, there are sprawling estate homes, and mountain cabins tucked away in the wilderness. Estates for sale in this area are more affordable than in many other parts of the state. A five-bedroom, 4,200-square-foot luxury mountain cabin with a large porch and panoramic views is listed for approximately $2.75 million. For something more subdued, a one-bedroom hunting cabin on 20 acres in the thick wilderness is listed for about $750,000.
Many lots are available at Elk Creek Ranch just west of Meeker in the middle of the county. Lots range from $2.7 million to $3.9 million, depending on size and location. Most lots are just under half an acre, with plenty of room to build a family home - spectacular views to the west and Elk Creek waterfront to the east. Once you purchase your lot, you gain access to Elk Creek Ranch and all that it offers, like nearly 30 miles of genuinely private Gold Medal trout fishing on White River, Elk Creek, and Miller Creek. Additionally, Elk Creek Ranch owns 14,000 acres in the heart of elk country. Including leases, Elk Creek Ranch owns nearly 25,000 acres of moose and mule deer hunting.
Near Elk Creek Ranch are a few homes for sale that don't carry all the perks, so they are more affordable.

Just 20 minutes outside Meeker, the home is part of Chapin Acres between Oakridge State Wildlife Area, Middle Mountain, and the White River Valley. The main floor offers about 2,200 square feet, three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, a den, and a large deck.

A four-bedroom multi-family home on Main Street with more than 3,800 square feet of living space is listed for $185,000.
