Picturesque Autumn Colorado Vacations
Guest Ranch Getaways for Adults
Discover the magic of the upper Elk River Valley
Autumn arrives early at The Home Ranch bringing a sublime, golden season to the Elk River Valley. It is a slower-paced time of year, when the children have returned to school and the atmosphere of the ranch beckons to adult travelers in search of this dramatic setting in the Rocky Mountains.
The days are crisp, clear and golden; the aspen groves shimmer with their own inner light and the fly fishing is exceptional. It is a prime time for deep relaxation, serious leisure, fine meals and crackling fires.
To help you put yourself in this picture, we structure unique September weeks to cater to the interests of the adult traveler. Please check out the offerings below and let us know how we may help make the arrangements for you.

Hands on Horse Week
Guests of The Home Ranch are given the unique opportunity to interact with a variety of different aged horses and deepen their understanding. The horses will range in age from young horses to mature saddle horses. We will take the same principles we use with young horses and apply them to the groundwork we do with an older horse. This is a great week to increase your horsemanship skills. Learn More
