Countdown to Winter!

Our staff is beginning to arrive at the ranch this week. It is so much fun to meet them all and get the ranch ready for the winter.  Christmas lights are going up on the buildings, furniture is being moved around in the living room to make way for the tree and decorations, trail signs are being sprinkled around the meadows to direct guests on their winter adventures and the fishing hut is transforming into the skiing hut.  While we still have two weeks until we welcome our first guests, the ranch is at full speed. It's been a great off season full of relaxation, planning and projects. The maintenance crew has added new lights along the lane to the cabins and barn. The wranglers have set up a leather shop in the Rec. Room to make sure the saddles are in top condition for next summer.  The kitchen is trying out [...]

Thank you & Welcome Home

As we prepare for Thanksgiving, we are reminded what we are grateful for. We are grateful for the land that we live, play and work on, the staff that we work with, the guests that we create relationships and memories with, and the vision the Stranahan’s had for this valley and continue to nurture. Over 35 years ago, Steve and Ann Stranahan discovered 580 acres of land north of Steamboat Springs, CO and upon it they built The Home Ranch. They have been welcoming families and friends to share their 'home' each winter, spring, summer and fall. In honor of the ranch's 35th year, we set out to capture a week at The Home Ranch. The ranch teamed up with Lunde Creative to figure out how to condense a week into two and half minutes. During this busy holiday time, we invite you to take a few minutes to escape to summer in [...]

and the Oscar goes to…. our guests

We are so lucky to have guests that show the passion and love that you have for the ranch. The Home Ranch would not be what it is without you. For this reason, we would like to thank each of you for allowing us to film your family while you were on vacation and wanted to share what we created with you first! Thank you for sharing your 'Home' with the rest of the world. You are always Welcome Home.     Happy Holidays to you and yours, Clyde, Selina, and The Home Ranch family

How Many Pounds of Veggies?!

The 'off-season' at a dude ranch is always busy. From maintenance and construction projects to buying new horses to planning for the following season and year. On snowy days we are all driven inside to work on projects that we have put off for a 'rainy' day. Yesterday was just one of those days, when all of our desks were occupied and keyboards clacked. Our Master Gardner, Adele Carlson, was working on compiling data from the past growing season. I thought the data she shared with us was amazing and wanted to share it with you. Here's what Adele had to say about the gardens at Clyde's Farm and the Kitchen Garden: Sitting at my computer watching the snow fall today, I found time to look back on the summer and production in Clyde’s Farm and the Kitchen Garden. Our total production came in at 1909 pounds – that’s a [...]

Three Reasons to Visit The Home Ranch

A couple of weeks ago we hosted two weeks with The Farm as the theme of the week. If you've ever been to The Home Ranch, then you know what a special place it is and how it fosters friendships with new people. I had the opportunity to get to know Scott and Karen Hudson during their short stay here. Scott had asked if there was anything he could do to promote the ranch, I asked him to write a guest blog about their time at the ranch. The following is what he sent me earlier this week. I can't wait to see them again next year. Selina I don’t usually do this, but after last week’s stay at the Home Ranch I felt I needed to again thank you - and let the world know exactly how amazing this special place is. I’ve been to many Relais & Chateaux properties, and [...]

Kari Forseth ~ Wrangler

It’s time for us to introduce you to some of the amazing staff that we have at the ranch this summer.  First up is Kari Froseth who is one of our wranglers.  I asked Kari to tell everyone how she found herself at The Home Ranch this summer and what her favorite part of the ranch is, so far.  Here is what she wrote:   Kari & Stetson out doing some trail exploring Who would have thought a girl from the outskirts of Milwaukee, Wisconsin would find her way to the mountains of Colorado to work with horses and give guests of The Home Ranch an unforgettable experience. Nearly 1,200 miles from home and here I am; a cowgirl at heart. Growing up I’ve never owned my own horse, but was blessed to have a mom to drive me back and forth to lessons every week. From a young age [...]
