Phantom Lake Ranch is family owned and operated. We strive to provide every guest with a relaxing, fun and adventurous time. We want to help families make memories of a life time, wedding couples to have a stress-free day, and provide a space for small businesses to treat their employees to a day out of the office. We believe that everybody could use some fresh mountain air and time away from all the distractions life throws at them.
Phantom Lake Ranch, originally known as Hardin Ranch, is home to the oldest log cabin in Red Feather Lakes. It was built in 1871 by the first known settler in the area, John Hardin. John made the long trip, with his family and a herd of cattle, all the way from Missouri. In addition to ranching, he hauled some much-needed wood, by horse and cart, down to the folks settling in the Fort Collins area.
