Colorado or Wyoming?

5/23/2018 8:48:00 AM

Although you can find guest ranches pretty much everywhere nowadays in the US and Canada as well as in other countries Colorado and Wyoming are often popular choices for many people. Both states have a lot to offer as you can see at Colorado’s Laramie River Ranch and Wyoming’s Gros Ventre Ranch.

For those who have dreamt of becoming real cowboys or those who simply wish to experience the rustic western lifestyle, Laramie River Ranch is ideal. Nestled in the majestic Rocky Mountains, the ranch features spectacular scenic surroundings with the chance to view wildlife such as antelope, elk and moose. It also boasts a wide range of activities and even a kids’ program.

There’s no end to the fun and excitement offered at the ranch. In addition to horseback riding and hiking, you can take part in many guided activities such as wild flower walks, bird watching, stargazing, and casting animal tracks. You can also pick up a few ranch-related tricks such as grooming and saddling your horse or roping. If you’re the kind of person who goes with the flow, do so literally at the Laramie River. You can float down the river on an inner-tube before reaching the lodge. However, if you’d rather stay wet and indoors, you’re welcome to take a dip in the hot tub.




To make evenings fun at the ranch, live musical entertainment is offered. From cowboy poetry to fiddle players and all the way to cowboys with guitars, rest assured that no minute is boring. You can even join other guests and the crew while square dancing, regardless of having two left feet.




Laramie River Ranch offers all of this and more. Be sure to check out their ranch listing for more details or to book your upcoming Colorado guest ranch vacation. 


Gros Ventre River Ranch in Moose, Wyoming, is considered a premier Jackson Hole dude ranch that offers all-inclusive vacation stays. Nestled on the banks of the Gros Ventre River this ranch boasts spectacular views of the Teton Range. With 30 to 40 guests per week you will be treated like family. If you love to horseback ride then this is the guest ranch for you. The morning after you arrive wranglers will assign you a horse for the week that best matches your experience level and riding style. There are several rides to choose from like scenic walking rides or more challenging rides that take you into the surrounding hills near the ranch. With two rides a day available and also an all-day picnic ride the amount of time you spend in the saddle is up to you.




Other fun activities to choose from are fly-fishing and hiking or if you are in the need of a jolt of adrenaline then try your hand at white-water rafting or a tandem parachute jump off of the 10,450-foot summit of Rendezvous Mountain. Looking to slow down? There are several golf courses in the area too. Or simply kick back in one of the hammocks found hanging between the trees throughout the front yard or curl up in one of the soft chairs by the fireplace in the main lodge. Kids love to hang out in their own rec room which comes complete with foosball, ping pong, puzzles, games, and movies. Adults can enjoy cocktails in the lounge and soak up the beautiful Wyoming sunsets while relaxing on the porch. After dinner the whole family can get together for a game of pool or play some table games while in the main lodge.

Over the past few weeks RanchSeeker has focused on several popular guest ranch destinations in the USA and we have also highlighted lots of great ranches in those areas. Our first blog post highlighted Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia and Idaho. Then in our 2nd blog post   we featured Montana, New Mexico and Wyoming.  For our final blog post about “Where Should I Go on My Next Ranch Vacation?” we will be focusing on the following destinations and guest ranches located in Canada.

Alberta

When you think of “ranches,” “old west” and “cowboy,” the province of Alberta, Canada, may not come immediately to mind. But all that will change when you discover the variety of Alberta dude ranches that welcome guests each year. In fact, Alberta has a long history of western traditions and is well known throughout much of the western U.S. for their ranching background and cowboy heritage. 

From the border of the Northwest Territories to the southern border with Montana, Alberta’s landscape holds something for everyone: rivers, lakes, badlands, the Rocky Mountains and even glaciers! Alberta ranch vacations take full advantage of this province’s magnificent geography. Alberta dude ranches offer activities for every member of the family: horseback riding, cookouts and barbeques, nature trails, white water rafting, wildlife viewing, golf, pack trips, photography outings, fly fishing, mountain biking, birding, cattle drives, hiking and so much more! Alberta ranch vacations create memories that will last a lifetime!

Ranches in Alberta attract visitors with their national park system, dinosaur digs and the fact that the province has 5 of the 13 UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Imagine visiting the Dinosaur digs in the Alberta Badlands in the morning, working on the Alberta ranch with the cowboys in the afternoon, and relaxing in the evening in the hot tub. You can do all this, plus more, at an Alberta ranch. 

At many Alberta ranches you can choose an independent schedule and explore on your own, or have the ranch arrange activities for you including horseback riding, fishing trips, and city tours.

For a once-in-a-lifetime experience check out Banff Trail Riders.

Grandparent Travel at Marble Mountain Ranch

11/6/2017 12:00:00 AM

In Northern California you will find Marble Mountain Guest Ranch, a dude ranch that combines their exceptional equestrian program with thrilling ranch activities such as white-water rafting, kayaking, fly fishing, sporting clays, jet boat adventures on the Lower Klamath and traditional American ranch events. Guest ranch accommodations and lodging include fully furnished deluxe homes and housekeeping cottages (or cabins).


What truly makes Marble Mountain Ranch one of the best locations in all of North America to vacation, is the wide variety of unparalleled adventures possible at their ranch. Keeping families together and engaged in activities suitable for beginners to experts is what this ranch is all about. For many guests, it is the horseback trail riding that is the highlight of their stay. However, the ‘summit to sea’ option ,which includes incredible trail riding opportunities featuring breathtaking mountain views combined with rafting, fly fishing and shooting are also not to be missed!

                                                             

Marble Mountain Ranch also caters to a very special vacation niche: Grandparent Travel where multi-generations come together while enjoying shared adventures. Creating memories and time well-spent together helps bridge the generation gap between loved ones. The bond between grandparents and grandchildren is a special one indeed and a shared vacation allows the younger generation the opportunity to better connect with their family roots. It can also enable parents some often much needed time for themselves should they choose to opt out of this particular adventure. Grandparent Travel need not only apply to the biological grandparent. Aunts, uncles, and godparents can also benefit from inter-generational travel experiences as well with their younger family members.

                                                             

By choosing Marble Mountain Ranch grandparents can feel confident that their young charges are in a safe environment. The remote and secure setting of a wilderness ranch eliminates the worry of little ones wandering off and getting lost in a huge resort-like complex. Ranch wranglers, guides, counselors, and owners are on-hand to staff all of the activities offered at the ranch and group safety is paramount.

A guest ranch destination also makes it easier for the urban raised grandchild to “unplug” from the digital world and be more present in the moment. With so many exciting activities to choose from in an outdoor wilderness setting your grandchild will prefer real world experiences over virtual ones. By disconnecting from their digital devices grandparents won’t have to compete for their grandchild’s attention providing the opportunity to truly connect with one another on a meaningful level.

A Grandparent Travel vacation at Marble Mountain Ranch combines a shared passion for adventure that spans generations while providing multiple benefits and memories that will last a lifetime.

Vista Verde Ranch Winter Escape

10/2/2017 7:54:13 PM

If you love to play in the snow and adore everything about the winter this year why not consider a vacation at Colorado’s Vista Verde Ranch located just outside of Steamboat Springs? Here, you will enjoy a true winter wonderland experience. As the temperatures drops and snow falls hideout in a deluxe lodge room or a peaceful, luxurious log cabin that range in size from one to three bedrooms. Each cabin features a living room, wood stove, and your very own private hot tub situated out on the deck which is ideal for stargazing on a clear, crisp wintry night.


When you do decide to poke your head outdoors you will find lots of exciting activities to choose from such as taking part in a traditional one horse sleigh-ride accompanied, of course, by a steaming hot cup of chocolate… could it get any better than that? But the fun doesn’t stop there, as you strap on some skis and try a variety of styles of Nordic skiing from classic to skate to back country. In addition there’s snow-shoeing, “fat” biking (bikes with wide tires that allow you to bike across snowy terrain) and snow tubing. And if that isn’t enough you can also take photography lessons, practice your downward facing dog, book a few spa treatments and take part in weekly cooking lessons and wine tastings.

If riding a horse through a blanket of fresh snow is on your bucket list then be prepared to cross it off! There is nothing like sitting astride one of Vista Verde’s magnificent horses with their warm, thick, lustrous winter coats and hearing the crunch of snow beneath their hooves while out on a winter’s day ride. Expect a slower paced excursion that lasts for an hour or so due to snowy conditions and colder temperatures. Whether you have ridden in the snow before or not this is an experience that should not be missed during your ranch visit.


Between adventures in the snow and downtime in either your private cabin or deluxe lodge room prepare to feast upon gourmet meals that balance “ranchy” with fancy ,which are served with perfectly paired wines that will impress even the most sophisticated palates at your table. Vista Verde’s Executive Chef Cholly McGlynn and his full staff of trained and experienced Chefs will happily accommodate any special dietary needs that you may have, if you simply let them know in advance.  With all the fresh air and time spent outdoors enjoying the varied activities available this is one vacation that you definitely won’t need to worry about counting calories.

Families looking for something different to do during Christmas and New Year’s will find that Vista Verde Ranch is the perfect choice to celebrate the holidays. Let the trained staff at Vista Verde take care of all the planning this year and simply show up and enjoy your all-inclusive winter vacation. For those who prefer adult-only vacation times, early January until mid-February are the dates for you. When President’s Day weekend comes around, the kid’s program kicks back into high gear and families are welcome once again through the ranch’s March Spring break weeks until it closes for the season when the snow starts to melt away.


With all the many options and activities to choose from once you get to Vista Verde Ranch, the only thing left to decide right now is what will you pack, when you want to go and with whom to spend your Colorado winter wonderland escape with this year? So what are you waiting for?
