Purchased in 1995 by John Hendricks, founder of the Discovery Channel and Animal Planet, the resort and the residences at West Creek Ranch are designed in a stunning Southwestern architectural style, combining traits of both the Ancestral Puebloan and Fremont cultures. The properties mirror the rich hues of the surrounding red rock formations, creating a connection to the past while embracing modern amenities.

Construction on Gateway Canyons Resort & Spa began in 2004, and since then, it has been recognized as one of the best destination resorts in the U.S. and the world by renowned brand Condé Nast Traveler. The 72-room retreat caters to those with an appetite for adventure and a curiosity about the world around them.

This resort features a host of different excursions and experiences for guests to choose from including hiking, horseback riding, an education center, helicopter tours, off-road vehicle tours, and much more. The world-class Gateway Auto Museum features Hendricks’ privately-owned collection, including a 1954 Oldsmobile F-88 concept car. Guests who prefer the finer things in life will enjoy the gourmet dining options and soothing spa offerings.

“Luxury and unspoiled landscapes meet at Gateway Canyons Resort & Spa,” said Endsley. “There’s no place like this anywhere else in the world. Explore or indulge—the choice is yours.”

West Creek Ranch includes the main residence, a private single-family home featuring only the finest in amenities and finishes and elevator service to all four levels. Completed in 2001, this 22,000-square-foot home was sustainably constructed and utilizes geothermal heating and cooling. This is living like no other. Both the art and architecture of the home are adobe inspired and there are even ancient fossils incorporated as interior design accents throughout the expansive house.


In addition to the stunning living spaces and private suites, the bonus features included in this residence make this offering stand out from everything else on the market. The home’s two-level, circular stone library with a swirling, wrought-iron spiral staircase is the perfect place to cross off books on your reading list. Residents and their guests can enjoy a showing of their favorite film in the tiered theater room, engage in some friendly competition in the game room, or focus on their fitness in the home gym.
