We love to tell people who are thinking about visiting us that there is nothing quite like a Colorado dude ranch vacation. It’s a special experience for anyone, and particularly those who don’t get the opportunity to break out of city life all that often.
In fact, it can be such a great time that it’s difficult to explain why, until you’ve been here yourself. So, we took some mental notes from the feedback we’ve gotten over the past few years and came up with the top seven things our guests love about our dude ranch vacations.
#1 The Natural Beauty of the West
You won’t find towering mountain peaks, sweeping valleys filled with wildflowers, and crisp alpine streams like ours in Colorado anywhere else in the world. There is something calming and refreshing about being surrounded by so much scenic beauty. If you haven’t been to the Rockies or the rolling prairies to the east already, you owe it to yourself to take in the sights and sounds.
#2 Getting a Chance to Slow Down, Unplug, and Relax
On a Colorado dude ranch, the last thing you (or your kids) will be worried about is your phone or email. In fact, one of our guests’ favorite things is the chance to unlog and finally “turn off the outside world.” If you are aching for the opportunity to truly relax, then we give you an easy way to get away from everything while still enjoying all the comforts of a mountain resort. No TV and limited Wi-Fi= Bliss!
It’s probably no surprise that we have people who visit us from all around the world just because they want to experience some of the best riding the US has to offer. Not only are these gentle animals natural friends and therapists, they can take you on amazing trails filled with hard to reach views. And just like people, every horse has a personality. Make friends with one and he or she will be happy to tell you about their life story.
There are things you can do on a day off here that you simply can’t experience in your normal life. From adventure-filled activities like whitewater rafting and zip lining to calmer pursuits such as fishing and birding, you’ll never run out of new things to try. It doesn’t matter how young or old your group is, or how much excitement you’re looking for. We can help you plan a trip that’s fun and unique.
Maybe it’s the sense of peace and quiet, the change in scenery, or the long nights spent under starry skies, but a Colorado dude ranch vacation has been known to open families up and bring them closer together. From couples to grandparents and grandkids, there’s something about being with us that makes it easy to connect and reconnect with your loved ones.
First-time guests sometimes think they’ll have to “rough it” on a Colorado dude ranch, but few things could be further from the truth. We offer farm to table kitchens, home baked goods, and dining choices for every palate. We think you should be able to enjoy every meal with us just as much as you do the surroundings and activities, so bring your appetite!
Again and again, guests have told us that one of their favorite things about a Colorado dude ranch vacation is remembering it later. Every group leaves with a great set of stories of shared experiences. The only thing better than enjoying those memories is looking ahead to the next trip.
Guests have told us again and again that any one of these would have made their trip to Colorado worth it. Put all seven together and you have the makings of the perfect getaway for any family, group, or couple.
