Dear Friend,

One of life’s greatest joys is welcoming families here in the summertime!

We are inspired by your genuine smiles and the sweet moments you share together. We love helping you explore the ranch individually, and when you reconvene for meals to share the details of your day with each other.

Thank you to the many families who return year after year to experience the magic of the Elk River Valley. We are grateful and sustained by your enduring support. Thanks, too, to those families who have arrived for their very first ranch vacation here in Clark,Family Time some traveling great distances from Europe and beyond to enjoy precious time together in this beautiful place.

This month, we have also had the pleasure of welcoming a reunion of the entire Stranahan family. While here, the family hosted a community gathering at Owen’s Cabin, a comfortable meeting place for residents of our Murphy Larsen Ranch development. It was a pleasure to meet so many neighbors, and those former Home Ranch guests who now call Clark, Colorado their home.

Founders Ann and Steve Stranahan continue to take such great pride in welcoming guests, in reconnecting with old friends and telling the stories of their lives and how their Home Ranch came to be.

Abby Stranahan echoes this feeling, “Seeing returning guests is such a delight! As families, we’ve watched each other’s children grow up together over summers at The Home Ranch, sharing triumphs and camaraderie, and making new friends along the way.”

The Home Ranch will always remain a sanctuary for our guests—a place to disconnect from the world and re-charge. Here, nature has a way of simplifying things and making you breathe again. This fresh air and scenic beauty is still the perfect antidote to stressful lives.


Warm regards from The Home Ranch,
