Colorado Ranch Vacations

Everything Wanted to Know About Western Ranch Vacations

If you've never been to a guest ranch in Colorado, you might be wondering, well, what is a guest ranch? What makes a guest ranch vacation different from other vacation options? The biggest difference is horses and horseback riding. Horses are one of the main components of a Home Ranch vacation. We've got over 70 of them in our meadows, horses of all colors and kinds, and we know one thing for certain, human beings are fascinated by horses. There is a very powerful, ancient connection between people and horses that we love to nurture, and that actually transforms people's lives. At The Home Ranch, we love teaching children to ride horses. We think the connection that we foster between children and horses is likely the most unique thing about a ranch vacation. Horseback riding takes a young child (or an adult for that matter), out of their typical environment and makes them an active participant in their own Western adventure. Who doesn't want the chance to feel like a cowboy or a cowgirl for a week, and ride against the backdrop of the western Continental Divide? That is something people long remember about ranch vacations.

All-Inclusive Family Vacations Colorado

A Western Ranch Vacation is like a great Colorado Road Trip, without the Road

"Last summer, my wife and I planned an epic tour of Colorado with her sister's family of four. We had two vehicles full of adults, kids, camping gear, and great expectations. We had a good time, but we both came home more exhausted than when we left. The sheer logistical madness of figuring out where to stay, where to eat, what to do, how to do it, and even if we should do it, left us all feeling like Napoleon after Waterloo, (except the kids, of course.) And though we thought we might save a little money by camping sometimes and just following our bliss, we came home shell shocked from our travel expenses. We should have gone to a guest ranch. Perhaps the greatest pleasure of a ranch vacation at The Home Ranch is that you can have all of the adventures and activities of a great Colorado road trip right from the door of our main lodge. Once you arrive, all of the things people love about Colorado are right in our backyard. Horseback riding, whitewater rafting, fly Fishing, Rocky Mountain hikingskiing, sleigh rides, big roaring campfires, all of it, without ever having to plan anything or drive anywhere. It's like extremely fancy camping with exceptional cuisine at every meal."
