Don’t ‘Have A Cow’ Trying to Pick The Perfect Vacation… Just Do a Colorado Dude Ranch!
There is nothing quite like the experience of herding cattle and riding the open range. Learn to maneuver animals ten times your size with ease, and since this cowboy tradition hasn’t changed much in the last 200 years, it’s easy to picture yourself riding in the early American West on a cattle drive.
In the evenings, the cowboy tradition carries on as many of our ranches entertain with a simple guitar and a few famous country songs being sung around the campfire. The night sky is clear and you can see a blanket of stars. No light pollution here! Aside from the hot tub or the swimming pool to relax in at the end of the day, you might easily forget that it’s the year 2012 and not 1912.
Our 29 Colorado Dude Ranches allow you to take a step back in time, yet still enjoy the modern luxuries you might find at home. The cabins or lodge rooms are spacious, comfortable, and adorned with a tasteful array of western décor. The meals are top notch and plentiful. And many of our ranches have extra amenities such as massages available upon request, whitewater rafting trips, trap shooting, fly fishing,kids/teens programs and much more.
So whether you are a ‘city slicker’ looking to try your hand with a little cattle ropin’ or maybe a family looking for a one of a kind vacation where the kids have just as much fun as the grown-ups, then THIS is the vacation for you.
Request a brochure with information on all 29 Colorado Dude Ranches today. Let us take you back to a simpler time where a good horse, good food, and your friends & family surrounding you were all it took to find that true sense of enjoyment and accomplishment of a day well spent.
