Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite fall photography from listings all across the country. While spring and summer have their allure with blooming flowers, warm temperatures, and sunny skies, there is something special about autumn that really makes us aware of the beautiful landscapes surrounding us.
Miller Lake Ranch represents a unique opportunity to effectively own your own national park. This 10,000± acre alpine ranch includes the tops of two 10,000-foot-tall granite peaks and miles of the Continental Divide. Rock ridges loom 1,500 feet above the timber, lakes and creek of this dead-end mountain valley. Privacy is here in the extreme. Wolves, bears, elk, deer, sheep and moose all summer here. Cutthroat trout fill the creek and lake. Winter is deep in snow and pristine. Yet, for all its seclusion, the Miller Lake Ranch is located surprisingly close to airports, interstate, towns, hospitals and supplies.
At the pinnacle of the upper Elk River Valley is a unique gentleman’s ranch combining exceptional land and extraordinary improvements.

Tolemac Farm is a legacy property located just one hour north of Atlanta near Jasper, GA where the Blue Ridge Mountains start.

Westlands is one of Colorado’s premier mountain recreational and retreat properties. Within its 4,603± deeded acres is perhaps the best private river fishing in the mountain states, excellent big game hunting, bird hunting, an exquisite owner’s home and guest quarters, extensive support buildings, four hole Greg Norman designed golf course, tennis court and immaculately maintained grounds. Located in the treasured White River valley in Colorado’s western slope near Meeker, Colorado, Westlands has hosted many distinguished guests, from CEO’s of large corporations to well-known dignitaries, political figures and celebrities. Westlands has been carefully developed and nurtured over the last 30 years by Henry R. Kravis who has spared no expense and whose fine eye for detail has created a family and business retreat that is unrivaled. The centerpiece of the property is the fishery on the North Fork of the White River. Fly fishing on this water is something most people can only fantasize about with the potential of landing multiple 10-15 pound, 24 to 30 plus inch rainbows and cutbows in a single session. With its many pools, islands and confluences, this fishery is completely private that likely could not be duplicated in today’s world. In total, Westlands has over five miles of live water on both forks of the White River.
Tucked into the foothills of the southern Blue Ridge Mountains, this historic 715± acre farm embodies the best qualities of north Georgia land. Purchased from the Cherokee Nation along with 14,000± additional acres in 1832, Old Horne Farm is a piece of the legacy of Farish Carter, an essential figure of Georgia’s pre-Civil War economy and the namesake for the city of Cartersville. Farish chose a spot just up the road from Old Horne as his family’s summer residence, a testament to the allure of this area. Old Horne Farm consists of fertile farmland that gradually moves into rolling forested hills that overlook the scenic countryside below. One of the properties highlights is the adjacent 3,200± acre Carter’s Lake, the deepest of Georgia’s reservoir lakes and an incredibly rich recreational body of water. Old Horne Farm is just 20 miles from Ellijay, GA, one of North Georgia’s prized mountain towns, and 65 miles from Atlanta, providing many wonderful conveniences.
