When it comes to pleasing all members of the family, no one else comes to the rescue quite like a Colorado Dude Ranch. It’s tough planning a family reunion. With so many varying interests and personal tastes, where do you start? The answer: right here!
Kids only get to be kids once. We want ranch kids and teens to ‘get a little dirty’, try something new (like horseback riding, archery, rock climbing), and leave the ranch without pining for their phone or PlayStation even once. We have yet to hear those dreaded 3 little words; “Mom, I’m bored!” over the past 83 years and we don’t anticipate we’ll be hearing them anytime within the next 83 years either. We keep’em busy with good ol’ fashioned fun and comin’ back for more.
You don’t have to ride a horse to have a great time at a Colorado Dude Ranch. Our goal is to bring families together and offer a variety of activates and yes, even down time, for families to simply reconnect! Whether you want to fish, hike, or simply spend the afternoon on the porch swing enjoying the sweet sounds of nature, we have plenty to occupy the non-riders in your group. And for the youngest members in the family (0-3 yrs old), many ranches have sitters available during the day to ensure everyone in the family is able to have a little fun!
Think about the last family vacation you took. Now, think about how much organization (meals/activities), shuttling, and planning fell on your shoulders? At our Colorado Dude Ranches we want the adults in the family to get a vacation too! We take care of feeding the family 3 hearty farm fresh meals a day, picking up after the family (daily maid service in your cabin or lodge room), and offering every age group activities for the day. All that’s left is for you to sit back and enjoy the ride!
Planning your reunion is now a snap! Here are 3 simple steps to turning your dude ranch reunion dream into reality.
1) Request a FREE Brochure & DVD to get you a snapshot overview of pricing/location/capacity. We also have a DIGITAL BROCHURE for you to share with the family. All of our ranches are ALL INCLUSIVE to help make budgeting and planning a piece of cake.
2) Narrow down the dates that work best for your family. All of our ranches offer week long packages (best value!) and some offer 3-4 night packages typically starting on a Saturday/Sunday. Call our office 1-866-942-3472 for more information.
3) Call the ranch(es) of your choice to confirm availability and then to book! They will take good care of you from there. Some ranches offer airport transfers (small fee) while others refer guests on to our Association Travel Service 1-800-729-5521 for the best transfer options.
