About Rick Lifto

Recently retired, own and operate ranch with our house 1/2 mile south of the entrance. The cabin is another quarter mile south out of view of the main house. We run horses and cattle on the ranch, but they will not bother you and we ask you respect their solitude. We love the country, rodeo's, golf, boating on Lake Bridgeport, swimming, tennis, racquetball, travel and the peace and quiet of the country.

Rick Lifto purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Rick Lifto chose Bridgeport

We bought this ranch from the granddaughter of a man who homesteaded this ranch in 1886. The stone house near the gate was originally part of the property. After we rehabilitated it with the intent to start a winery, the neighbors horse pasture was sold and changed the scenery, so we sold the house to a friend and developed the ranch land. As you arrive at the gate, you will have been provided a special temporary code to open the gate. Or, if you lose the code, just call Rick's cell number which will have been provided.

What makes this cabin unique

If you enjoy solitude, modern comfort, yet the ability to enjoy the country, we believe you will enjoy staying here. You can fish in the pond close to the cabin. It is stocked with catfish, perch, bass, and crappie. Each year we add more fish. In December 2017 we added another 1000 perch, sunfish, bass, blue gill, catfish & crappie. You can keep up to 4 fish to eat for each two days at the ranch. If you stay six days, that would be 12 (all in the same day or spread out). Anything five pounds and above does not count in your number.

Bring your horses, and you can use our corral and trails.

For the ranch bring your ATV, 4 wheeler, or simply enjoy the ranch on hiking the trails, biking, grilling or simply relax around a camp fire. Use the gun range with agreement to abide by the safety agreement. Also, we have bow and arrows for use at the range. We have two flat screen televisions with cable TV, DVD player, movies and Wi-fi. Enjoy an evening soak in the two person hot tub, located in the master bedroom.

Didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

It was amazing! The cabin is fully stocked, extremely clean and comfortable. Rick, the owner, makes everything SO easy. He is very quick to respond to questions but does not intrude at all.

It is very private. It has so much to do already set up for you (horseshoes, GIANT fire pit, private gun range, canoe and more). It is worth it to take him up on the use of an ATV for a minor extra fee. It's close to restaurants should you feel like not cooking. Rick can give you some suggestions and I loved the Rooster's Roadhouse in Decatur. There is literally so much to do that next time I want to stay a week!

Everything was exactly as advertised, even better! Meeting Rick was the highlight of our trip. He made sure our stay was perfect and helped my family make some great memories. I don't know of a thing I would change about the cabin and all the activities there. Truly a relaxing and fun visit!
