When we think about taking a mini-break for some well-deserved spa pampering, a guest or dude ranch doesn’t usually spring to mind and that’s a pity, because many modern day guest ranches have invested a lot of time and effort into their spa facilities. So much so, that some ranch resort and spas are regularly featured in travel articles and even make the 10 best spa resort list!
Guest ranches can offer so much more than merely parking yourself in a spa for a few days, especially at this lovely time of year of sunny days and crisp fall nights. Even if you hadn’t considered a guest ranch or ranch resort for your spa getaway, how does soaking in a hot tub at night on a timbered deck gazing up at a star-filled sky with a glass of something cold close by sound to you? Or getting to experience some of the newest and most innovative spa trends in the ultra-modern facilities of a guest ranch resort spa? After a day of being pampered, cosseted and soothed by the friendly and skilled staff at your guest ranch spa, what better way to relax than to mix and mingle with the other guests in front of a roaring log fire, before sitting down to an exquisite dinner prepared by the resident chef.
As a change of pace from indulging in the decadent delights of your guest ranch spa, a leisurely horseback ride among spectacular surroundings or a gentle hike along verdant trails far removed from the stresses of city life, will refresh and rejuvenate the inner self. Some guest ranches even boast an indoor heated pool or are situated close to mineral springs for invigorating bathing sessions. Having a mini-vacation at a guest ranch at this time of year means you can take advantage of the many end-of-season specials that ranches offer between their busy summer season and the approach of winter. Three or four night getaways are typical ranch resort and spa packages and along with comfortable accommodation and satisfying meals, may also include a choice of spa treatments.
