Thanksgiving is one of the traditions that bring families together around a festive table filled with delicious edibles that everyone loves. But why stick to your dinner table when you can enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal within the mountains, surrounded by the beautiful scenery you should be thankful for? And why curl in front of the TV later when you can go on a horseback ride, hike through beautiful valleys, or lounge with others in a lodge to exchange stories? If this sounds tempting, then it’s high time that you head on to a dude ranch Thanksgiving holiday.
To help you get the best of the season without stretching your budget, take a look at the following three Thanksgiving 2015 vacation specials available.
Rancho Los Baños Adventure Guest Ranch
A 30,000 acre adventure guest ranch, Rancho Los Baños is an authentic cattle ranch at the foothills of the Sierra Madres in Sonora, Mexico. What makes it special is its original, exotic flavor which you won’t find in nearby ranches. As an adventure guest ranch, you can also expect thrilling, challenging, educational, and, of course, fun-filled activities that would keep you and your loved ones coming back for more. The dude ranch is also enshrouded by wilderness, adding to its seclusion and separating it from the hubbub of Douglas, Arizona almost 55 miles away.
For Thanksgiving 2015, Rancho Los Baños Adventure Guest Ranch is offering a six night, seven day package that starts from Sunday November 22 through Saturday November 28. The package costs $1,200 per guest per stay (single occupancy is $1,320 per stay), but children aged 10 and under are welcome to stay there for free. In addition to a round-trip shuttle, this deal includes a Latin American Wine Tasting session that stretches all week long. Get ready to tantalize your palate with complimentary wines from Mexico, Chile, Argentina, Peru and other great wineries in the region. And to top it all, you’ll enjoy a Thanksgiving turkey dinner served in a unique, cultural setting.
Coffee Creek Ranch
Known for being Northern California’s Finest Guest Ranch, Coffee Creek Ranch is also one of the oldest ranches in the area. Surrounded by the National Forest and the Trinity Alps, the 367-acre ranch offers vacationers the chance to reconnect with nature and experience firsthand the world-famous southern hospitality. Families are most welcome at the ranch, a fact proven by its range of Ranch Youth Activities which offer age-appropriate activities to children aged 3-17, such as horse/pony rides, crafts, and roping lessons. Adults, on the other hand, can pick from horseback riding activities, pack trips, fishing trips, or hunting sessions.
For Thanksgiving 2015 on November 29, Coffee Creek Ranch invites you to unwind, unplug and relax at the ranch. The Thanksgiving package includes all meals, lodging, horseback riding, and all the ranch’s activities. However, if you live within 150 miles of the ranch you can stay there for $150 per night per person to have the best time of your life. Better yet, if your family consists of four members, you can save and enjoy Thanksgiving at the ranch for $400 a night. Children under three years can stay for free. So, book quickly to enjoy a delicious Thanksgiving dinner by the ranch’s pool this year
White Stallion Ranch
A member of the TripAdvisor Hall of Fame after winning the #1 Property in Tucson for five years in a row, White Stallion Ranch has been welcoming visitors for over seven decades. It’s well maintained facilities and wonderful scenery contributed to making it one of the top settings for many Hollywood movies over the years. In addition to comfortable, luxurious rooms, the ranch amenities flaunts sports courts, a fitness center, a bar, a recreation room, a movie theater, and a petting zoo which your kids will love. You can also take part in a range of activities such as riding, rodeo, and hiking. Even if you’re not the adventurous type, your stay will be fun thanks to the ranch’s evening entertainment which includes moonlight bonfires, an astronomy show, line dancing lessons, whip cracking lessons and lastly gun spinning lessons.
If White Stallion Ranch is your destination this Thanksgiving 2015, you can ride your heart out or relax by the pool while a traditional Thanksgiving dinner is being cooked outside. However, you’ll need to book your spot quickly since Thanksgiving Week is very popular and space is limited. Make sure to inquire at 520-297-0252 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
These are just some of the Thanksgiving 2015 vacation specials our dude ranches have available this year. Make sure to book the package you like the most right away or else you and your family won’t be able to experience a Western Thanksgiving before next year.
