Property Description

At 2,700+/- deeded acres, the Bettels Ranch is an exceptionally well located, multifaceted investment and recreational property!  Located less than an hour south of Kansas City, the Bettels Ranch is very desirable as an income producing farm and a world class hunting and fishing retreat! 

Consisting of 1,700 acres of fertile grasslands, 675 productive tillable acres, over 170 acres of live water, and the remaining balance in excellent wildlife habitat, the ranch truly offers it all! 

With over 170 acres of deep lakes and shallow pools, the ranch is thriving with world class bass and crappie fishing plus world class waterfowl hunting!  One of the key components to the waterfowl hunting is the location of the ranch, it is tucked in the center of the flyway between La Cygne Wildlife Area, Marais Des Cygnes Wildlife Area and Four Rivers Conservation Area! A big bonus from a deer and turkey hunting stand point is Mulberry Creek laces through the center of the ranch and a beautiful stand of timber extends off each side providing excellent whitetail hunting opportunities.

One of my favorite aspects of the ranch is the location of the lodge.  The 5,000 square foot lodge sits on a gentle ridgetop overlooking a beautiful lake and breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside.  The lodge is open concept with a large living room, dining room, kitchen and large stone fireplace that all connect providing a very open and at home feel.  The lodge is complete with 4 large bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and a huge walk out basement.  The lodge is also complimented with a large 2nd story deck off the back, overlooking the lake and farm.  The deck would be an incredible place to entertain friends and enjoy the scenic beauty of the ranch.    

The Bettels Ranch offers a rare opportunity to acquire a large contiguous ranch in truly a turnkey package.  Call today with questions or to arrange a private tour!
