The Story of Fox Acres

Fox Acres Country Club, a residential development of distinction in a Colorado mountain wonderland, evolved from a commercial fox farm – and from the vision, skill. business and investment of an ambitious Colorado native, Raymond 0. Stenzel.

Jeweled by 17 lakes – a challenge to golfers, joy of fishermen, source of tranquility for all residents and visitors – Fox Acres is a harmony of natural grandeur and gracious living; Abutting Roosevelt National Forest and the Red Feather Lakes community, it nestles in northwest Colorado scenic majesty about two and half hour by highway from Denver and one hour from Fort Collins.

Three skeins of history intertwine to weave the unique background of Fox Acres: the growth of the Red Feather Lakes resort community, the operation of a silver fox ranch on land that was to become the nucleus of Fox Acres and to inspire the name of the development, and the Stenzel era in the transformation of the area was conceived and matured.

From all that colorful foundation emerges the achievement that is the Fox Acres Country Club, 459 lovely acres including a breathtaking 120 acre championship golf course, luxurious clubhouse and sites for 225 living units – all representing. when development is completed, investments of some thirty million dollars.

Fox Acres was nearly 20 years in the making – a measure of the painstaking care that went into each step of the process – from the time the Stenzels started creating their own vacation spot, through its evolution into an exclusive country club community for selected buyers of homesites.
