A Great Family Vacation!
Thinking about one of our Colorado dude ranches for your vacation?
Then a vacation at one of the many Colorado Dude Ranches might be just the ticket for you.
You will be able to do all of these activities and more. You can also learn fly-fishing, raft down a river, take an overnight pack trip or have a family rodeo.
Or, you could experience camp fires and cookouts, hayrides and horseshoes. In the evening, there is live music, cowboy poets and old-fashioned barn dances.
Now, let’s say you love the idea of old-time ranch living but you do like a soft bed at night and great food. Well, these Colorado Dude Ranches have all of that and much more.
Oh, and one more thing. Did I mention that these Dude Ranch vacations are all-inclusive? Well, they are. They all include lodging, meals and daily horseback riding and most also include much more.
If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about horse whispering, check out this very interesting book. Below I have posted several ranches that I hope you will love:
Zapata Ranch in nestled at the base of Southern Colorado’s Sangre de Cristo Mountains and shares a border with the Great Sand Dunes National Park & Preserve. Located about 3 hours from Colorado Springs and 30 minutes from Alamosa, there are several cabins and one larger house for groups. With terrific food, lots of fresh air in a real Western wilderness property, this ranch will make you feel right at home in Colorado.
Open year-round, they offer a great riding program, along with mountain biking, rock climbing and cooking classes in the summer. In the winter, cross country skiing and snowmobiling are great activities.
Down-to-earth and friendly, you’ll love the food and the great diversity of activities and adventures.
Come in the summer with the kids or in the fall when they are for adults only. They’re open in the winter and offer crisp, Colorado days with unforgettable scenery and then a warm fire at the day.
Memories are made of this!
At the Ranch, the lodge is historic and the fly-fishing is incredible!
Ride the beautiful horses on trails that will take you through breathtaking canyons with endless variety, everything from gentle walking to loping and all-out advanced rides.
There are many more great Dude and Guest Ranches in Colorado. Some are located at lower elevations, some are bigger, some are smaller with more personal attention.
