Lodging Overview
We have 12 cozy, comfortable guest log cabins clustered along the Colorado River. Also available is our 3 bedroom Ranch House. All cabins have screened porches. Cabins and the Ranch House are cleaned and the beds made daily. There is a laundry room available for guests to use at no charge.
Recreation Overview
While the ranch features horseback riding and "GOLD MEDAL" fishing, we offer a variety of other non-riding activities to choose from including our 1500 foot COLORADO RIVER ZIP LINE. Mountain Biking, guided hiking, White water rafting, trap shooting, sight seeing van trips and nearby golf are all available. You can also choose to lounge in our 20X40 heated swimming pool, soak in our jacuzzi, grab a book from our library, or sit and relax in the main lodge. The recreation barn is always open for a game of air hockey, ping pong, shuffleboard or foosball.
Dining Overview
For most meals everyone gathers in the historic lodge where we serve good old American home style cooking. Lunches are served in our river porch overlooking the Colorado River. At 7500 feet elevation the mountain air and outdoor life provide a terrific appetite booster - so we serve em' up in cowboy sized portions. Our entrees are accompanied with delights such as homemade breads, pastries and desserts. Since our own family is split between meat and non-meat eaters, we recognize and appreciate guests' variance in appetities. There are always options available.
