The Home Ranch
Featured in the first edition of "1,000 Places To See Before You Die", and the only dude ranch in Colorado affiliated with the prestigious Relais & Chateaux, The Home Ranch is distinguished by the exceptional beauty of its Rocky Mountain setting, its singular charm and style, the outstanding quality of its horsemanship and children's program, and its exquisite gourmet food and hospitality. An Orvis-endorsed fly-fishing lodge, it also an excellent destination for fly-fishers of all ages, and quite simply, one of the finest Colorado vacations you can imagine, at one of the finest dude ranches in the West.
Your all-inclusive vacation to The Home Ranch gives you and your family the perfect blend of elegant lodging and front door access, by horseback or foot, to the natural highlights of the Rocky Mountain Wilderness: the wild and scenic Elk River, the Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest, and the Mt. Zirkel Wilderness area.
Big summer fun, healthy outdoor activities, excellent food, and all kinds of memorable family adventure opportunities are literally at your doorstep when you reserve your all-inclusive summer vacation at The Home Ranch.
A family-friendly vacation at The Home Ranch requires no advance planning, no childcare arrangements, no dinner planning, and no stress. You and your family can simply follow your individual bliss while we take care of everything else for you.
Everyone in your family gets their very own horse for the week - and all of your food, lodging, local transportation, fishing gear, kids counselors, guide service, wranglers and endless on-ranch activities and adventures are included in the price of your stay.
Our all-inclusive children's program and dedicated kids counselors offer a wide menu of daily activities and adventure for kids and teens - and make it very easy for the whole family to unwind, relax, and do what they want, when they want, how they want to do it. Our counselors are available to keep your kids occupied and entertained every day of the week, from 8:30 in the morning until 9:00 at night.
Live entertainment and music in the evenings is one of the highlights of the week and you can count on impromptu concerts, Cowboy theatre, and the beloved Home Ranch Barn Dance.
Dude ranch. Gourmet cuisine. Strange bedfellows these two phrases. When some people think of "dude ranch vacations" they picture a guy named Cookie whipping up bacon and beans in the sagebrush. Well, we are sorry to disappoint anyone who has such a colorful imagination, but as the only Colorado property in the prestigious Relais & Chateaux, we won't pussyfoot around the subject: our food is amazing.
We open for week long vacations in mid-June & continue until late August. Singles & couples of all ages are also welcome to join in the fun. We offer wrangler led horseback riding, guided hiking, mountain biking & fly fishing every day of the week, morning & afternoon. We also offer full day excursions for those who want to head deeper in the wilderness. Our exceptional children's program is available daily & our tireless & enthusiastic counselors create fun adventures for kids and teens alike
6 rooms in our main lodge & 8 cabins appointed with antiques, Native American rugs, plush down comforters, hair dryers & robes.

Lodge rooms feature king beds, private renovated baths with glass enclosed showers & separate vanity.
