A Vacation at The Home Ranch

A Rocky Mountain Ranch Vacation


Wide open spaces and some of the most beautiful scenery on the earth serve as the backdrop for our 4,000 acres ranch high in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, along the western slope of the continental divide. It is the combination of fresh air, plenty of freedom to explore and try new things that makes a ranch vacation so different from another hotel stay. Horses are one of the main components of a ranch vacation. We've got 70 of them in our meadows, horses of all colors and kinds and we know one thing for certain, that human beings are fascinated by horses. There is a very powerful and ancient connection between people and horses that we love to nurture, one that actually transforms people's lives. We love teaching children to ride horses. We think the connection we foster between children and horses is likely the most unique thing about a ranch vacation. Horseback riding takes a child or an adult for that matter, out of their normal lives and makes them an active participant in their own Western adventure. Who wouldn't want the chance to feel like a cowboy or a cowgirl for a week riding along beside the Continental Divide? That's something people will never forget from a ranch vacation.

Why a Colorado Ranch Vacation is like a great 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 children, 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 The Home Ranch. Perhaps the greatest pleasure of a ranch vacation 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 excellent cuisine at every meal.
