A spectacular ranch for a unique summer vacation, combining Colorado Rockies splendor with northern New Mexico enchantment. Rainbow Trout Ranch offers breathtaking country in which to ride, fish, and hike, and the brand of western hospitality that keeps our guests coming back for more. Excellent kids’ programs and a fun teen program add plenty of options for everyone to go their own way, or to spend time together. We have superb riding which includes plenty of options plus all-day rides and team sorting (working cattle in the arena). Also great fishing on the Conejos River which flows right through the ranch. Fly-fishing guides on staff to help get you started, and equipment included. Side trips include whitewater rafting on the Rio Grande near Taos, and America’s highest, longest narrow-gauge railroad nearby. Fascinating Santa Fe is a great choice for a night before or after the ranch. Enjoy your own aspen-log cabin, home-cooked meals served in our historic lodge, Rocky Mountain nights dancing or singing, horse drawn hayrides. Spend six nights and take home a lifetime of memories!

"Phenomenal Riding..." "Awesome fishing..." "Fantastic teen program..." "Our kids loved it--so did we!" --from RTR guest books. 2021 Sunday to Saturday stay: $2600 per adult. Adults Only: August 22-September 19, 2021: $400 per person per night, minimum 4-night minimum stay; "Fisherman's Rate": $375 per adult per night. Non-Rider's Rate: 15% off regular rates ***2.9% Colorado state sales tax + $10 county lodging per person for the entire stay – these are the lowest you will find!
Teens (12-17): $2400 per week. We are one of the few ranches that offers a teen program--it is optional of course but they really love it. They have a great counselor and it is not as structured as the children's programs because we have the teens join in the planning which they thrive on. It is healthy, outdoors and non-technological which they adjust to quickly, and surprisingly, love. "Cowpokes" (ages 6-11): $2200 per child. We love kids, and both programs reflect this--they have fun activities, great counselors and the one complaint we get is "Our kids are having so much fun we hardly see them!" "Buckaroos" (ages 3-5): $2000 per child. Little ones under 3: $250 per week.
