Overview

A real cowboy experience in the Colorado Rockies awaits at the Colorado Cattle Company Guest Ranch which dates back to the 1880’s. This working ranch covers 10,000 acres of prime Colorado ranch land, and gives guests the opportunity to live life in the old west the way cowboys used to. There’s a great range of outdoor activities to enjoy and 75 well trained horses for all abilities. You decide how involved you want to be – if it’s just fun you’re after, then join in the Cowboy School in the afternoon, when there will be roping lessons, cowboy handball, obstacle course and other fun games. For those who want to experience the real thing, then join in The Cattle Work after breakfast, when you’ll ride out on the cattle drive returning to the ranch in time for lunch.

When you want to relax, just sit back and enjoy the views, take a swim in the pool or have a massage to ease your muscles after a long ride. There’s a range of rustic guest rooms to choose from – either in the main homestead or in log cabins. And the price includes three home-cooked meals a day.

We recommend a stay of six nights at this ranch to live the full experience, starting on a Sunday. You'll fly into Denver and then it's a three hour drive, so a couple of nights in Denver are recommended to take time to enjoy the Mile High City, before driving out into beautiful Colorado.

Usually this will finish for lunch back at the ranch, and then you can take time to relax
