One of the top rated guest ranches in Colorado is the Lost Valley Ranch. With over 20 secluded cabins, each nestled in the pines overlooking the ranch, there is room of everyone. Riding the amazing trails in the area or hiking through the Pike National Forest are some of the highlights. Also, you will ride with the professionals, enjoy heated swimming pools and learn the ways of the cowboy by helping the wranglers with their daily chores. Lost Valley Ranch has a pickle ball court, guided hiking adventures and family-friendly evening entertainment.
And then there’s Vista Verde Guest Ranch. Each private log cabin at the ranch is unique in design and décor and the amenities are amazing. They include a private hot tub on the deck, Italian linens, cozy comforters, spa robes, locally made bath products, and more. Also, summer is the season for the traditional family horse vacations. At Vista Verde enjoy the horseback riding, cookouts, green grass, quivering aspens, and fun barn dances. However, the winter is also a great time to visit. The ranch offers sledding, sleigh rides, hot chocolate, bubbling hot tubs, horses and snowshoes. Remember to check for availability before making any vacation plans.
