Autumn comes early to The Home Ranch and brings a sublime, golden season to the Elk River Valley. It is a slower-paced time of year, when kids have all returned to school, and the atmosphere at the ranch beckons to adult travelers who have time to savor the season, sans kiddos.
The days are crisp, clear, and golden; the aspen groves shimmer with inner light, and the fly fishing is exceptional. It is a prime time for deep relaxation, serious leisure, long gourmet dinners, and crackling fires.
To take advantage of this special season, we structure unique September weeks to cater to the interests of the adult traveler. Please check out the offerings below and call us if you would like further clarification of each week's events.
Adults Only Weeks 2013: August 25th - September 1st & September 1st - 8th
This year, the last week in August and first week in September are reserved for adult travelers only (no kids). Excellent fly fishing, exceptional weather, fall color and gourmet dining bring travelers from around the world to savor the sights of the Elk River Valley in Autumn.
Weanling Week and Canadian Sport Horse Sale 2013: September 8th - 15th
This is a week filled with learning, laughing and love. Each September Gord Jessiman brings down about 30 four-month- old horses from Canada. The guests of The Home Ranch are given the opportunity to interact with these babies for the first time in their lives, teaching them how to lead and how to trust people. At the end of the week, on September 14th, 2013, these beautiful babies are sold at an auction to horse enthusiasts. For more information on Weanling Week, please click here.

Fall is the time of year when the slower pace of our historic ranching community slows a bit and allows us to truly enjoy our surroundings and neighbors. The days are crisp and clear, and the Aspen leaves often peak in late September. It is a prime time for deep relaxation, leisurely days, exceptional fly fishing, and long gourmet dinners...
To take advantage of this peaceful time of year we offer our guests the option of convenient four night stays. Of course once you get here you are free to extend your vacation for as long as you like. This is a great opportunity to taste all that our Colorado dude ranch has to offer, without the requirement of a seven night stay.
Horseback riding through the golden aspen groves, as we bring in our sister ranch's cattle from their summer pasture, is a fall highlight. If horseback riding isn't for you, we'll take you on a guided hike to awe inspiring views and trails dusted in freshly fallen leaves. As an Orvis-endorsed fly fishing lodge, fly fishing the Elk River doesn't get any better. Or you may just want to sleep late, read a book by the fire, soak in the hot tub, and indulge in Chef Clyde's cuisine. It's a good time to relax and follow your bliss. Time is your servant, and the days are yours.
Give us a call at 800.688.2982 for more information on what your fall getaway could look like.
