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, lies a 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 Colorado Winter Vacations made in sparkling powder heaven. If you are looking for the True West, (but with gourmet cuisine), this is the American West at its best.
Your all-inclusive vacation puts the wild and scenic Elk River, the Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest, and the Mt. Zirkel Wilderness at your doorstep and gives you and your family immediate access to all of our on-ranch activities and some of the best adventure travel outfitters in the Steamboat Springs, Colorado area. The Home Ranch is an ideal home base for all kinds of adventure, in every season of the year, and offers you a wide variety of adventures and activities to suit any age, taste or desire.
An exceptionally family friendly summer vacation destination, our excellent children's program is available every day from 8:30 a.m. until 9.p.m. and our tireless and enthusiastic counselors create fun adventures for kids and teens alike. Live entertainment and music in the evenings is one of the highlights of Home Ranch life and you can look forward to impromptu concerts, Cowboy theatre, and the unforgettable Home Ranch Barn Dance.
