Welcome to the Home Ranch
All-Inclusive Vacations at our Colorado Dude Ranch, Deep In The Soul of the True West
As you enter the Elk River Valley, just beyond Steamboat Springs, Colorado, you may notice the peaked eaves of the barns, the storybook crest of Hahn’s Peak in the distance, and the feeling that you are going back in time to a more idyllic landscape, one that hasn’t changed much in 100 years. No condos. No streetlights. Just Colorado as you hoped it would be, and as it once was. Big ranches. Blue skies. Real cowboys.
And tucked away at the far end of the valley, where the Elk River flows from the Sawtooth Range, you will find our hidden Relais & Chateaux gem, one of the West’s best dude ranches, and a family-friendly summer vacation paradise offering year-round multi-sport adventures, legendary horseback riding vacations, Orvis-endorsed fly fishing, and picture perfect Colorado winter vacations made in sparkling powder heaven. If you are looking for an extraordinary vacation from the stresses and strains of modern life, and a place to repair and replenish your body and soul, you will find it here at The Home Ranch. Join us in every season of the year and enjoy our promise of old world hospitality deep in the heart of the American West.
