Home Ranch
Colorado USA

Through the aspen trees surrounding your cabin come glimpses of Hahn's Peak which beckoned prospectors a century ago. To the North and East lies the Mount Zirkel Wilderness area. A hundred thousand acres of road- less territory. Sprawled at the northern end of Colorado's Elk River Valley, the ranch offers its guests a step back in time and a true taste of life on a real ranch. The tradition of taking guests on a ranch was founded of a desire for company and help by early ranchers, and was welcomed by their city cousins who yearned for respite and space. Thus was born "western hospitality." Within this framework lies a mutual respect for each other's needs and lifestyles. The Elk River Valley Home Ranch is the place to carry on this compliment of values. One is essentially a guest in the home of a big western family.  The ranch has an outstanding horsemanship program for adults and children alike. They are located in a picture perfect setting in Colorado's Elk River Valley. Quality is their trademark. The ranch is rated 4 stars by Mobil and is a member of the prestigious Relais & Chateaux organization since 1987. Whether you choose a cabin or lodge room, you'll feel special in the  individually decorated rooms. The children's program is comprehensive and casual. Nightly activities are family oriented and fun for all ages. The Home Ranch is one of the best dude ranches and beloved guest ranches in the world. We invite you to come and experience the warmth of the Western Hospitality and the stunning beauty of the Elk River Valley.
It is advisable to make reservations as soon as possible - the summer months are usually sold out 6 months in advance.
