Accommodations for Big Thompson River Ranch

This is a stationary ride, so all nights are spent at the same location.

Each lodging unit is decorated in the spirit of the Old West and furnished with antique accents. Our guest rooms are television- and telephone-free, allowing for the opportunity afforded to enjoy evening walks and/or fireside chats.
The ranch is smoke-free to preserve a healthful environment.
Some of our lodging units accommodate wheelchairs.

Amenities include our Game Courts with tennis, pickle ball, shuffleboard, foursquare, and basketball. In addition, we have a Game Room equipped with table tennis, foosball, and billiards. You can also enjoy a refreshing dip in our outdoor heated pool (seasonal).

Complimentary wireless Internet is available throughout the main ranch grounds, including lodging rooms.
Cell phone service is patchy. Verizon has a strong signal in the Heritage; other providers are a little trickier. However, our house phone in the lobby is available 24/7 with complimentary international or domestic long distance along with local calls.

If needed, pick-up laundry service is available mid-week.
