…at Colorado’s All-Inclusive Dude & Guest Ranches. Explore Specialty Weeks, New Amenities and More Activities that Meet Individual Needs and Budget.
Shawnee, CO (Jan. 27, 2010) – What exactly is a ‘Colorado Cowboy/Cowgirl’? Mix one part traditional cowboy with one part Colorado active outdoor lifestyle and get the best of both worlds – a fun-filled, activity-packed Colorado dude and guest ranch vacation.
Leave the winter doldrums behind and check into an all-inclusive Colorado dude and guest ranch vacation where you can ride horses, build campfires, fish gold medal rivers, raft class 2 – 5 rivers, hike Colorado’s national forests, rock climb to majestic views, mountain bike scenic trails, and more.
“Our guests experience the flavor and culture of Cowboy living while enjoying the excitement and beauty of Colorado’s outdoor bounty,” said Colorado Dude & Guest Ranch Association Marketing Director Selina Heinz. “Of course, if you simply want to relax, you can do that too.”
Colorado dude and guest ranches offer lodging, meals, and most activities as part of a weekly rate. Each ranch has special activities that may be unique to their property such as rock climbing, hot air ballooning, or guided fishing, but guests are informed if these activities cost extra prior to arrival.
In addition to the numerous outdoor activities available, Colorado dude and guest ranches offer wine cellars and wine pairings, gourmet meals, spa treatments, yoga classes, crafts and photo workshops, petting zoos and special themed weeks such as couples retreats, culinary weekends, cowgirl weeks, and horsemanship clinics to name few. And, all the ranches offer extensive children’s programs that will keep the kid’s entertained for hours.
Dates fill up fast, so for the best all-inclusive summer vacation value, book early. Historically, the Fourth of July, the first two weeks of August, and Labor Day weeks are among the busiest vacation times in the Colorado mountains.
Rates range from $1800-$4200 per week; partial weeks may be available. Be sure to check for early or late season bargains as many ranches offer discounted rates the first and last weeks of summer.
