We may also have some Current Dude Ranch Vacation Special Offers & Opportunities!

Non-rider discount:
We offer a 15% discount to dude ranch cowboys and cowgirls who enjoy the ranch but do not ride. Please ask for our non-rider discount when you book your family vacation reservations.

Active Military and immediate family – Year Round:
We want to thank you for your service with a 15% discount from regular pricing for all Active Military and your immediate families.  (If you have been injured in the line of service, you may call us privately about a personalized pricing.)

The Small Print:
Rates listed here are per person. Additional charges include 3.55%  tax and 15% service charge.  We are often asked by guests how gratuities should be handled.  Starting this year we are automatically adding a service charge rather than suggesting a tip.  If you feel you received exceptional service, and want to show your appreciation by giving an additional tip for our staff they will appreciate it, but not expect it.

Gift shop, liquor store purchases and massages may be added to final bill.

We prefer personal checks or travelers checks, & accept most credit cards. Oh! Cash is just fine too!

We require a deposit of 20% for dude ranch reservations, and 50% for family reunions or other larger groups of 10 or more persons.

Cancellations:  Cancellations 60 days prior to your arrival will be refunded minus 10% handling fee.   We will gladly attempt to reschedule your reservation and transfer the entire deposit to that new reservation.

No Show:
In the event that you do not show. You will be billed the full rate for your reservation.

Travel Cancellation Insurance
You might want to consider trip cancellation insurance to protect your family dude ranch vacation deposit. Both the Colorado Dude and Guest Ranch Association and the Dude Ranchers Association are associated with Travel Guard insurance.

Little Riders:
To ride outside the arena, children must be mature and large enough to safely control their horse on the trail — we look at the child’s size, coordination, and attitude on horseback. Typically children are ready to ride at about age eight. Children who are not yet ready to trail ride will ride with a wrangler in the arena. Please feel free to call us to discuss any questions you might have about your child’s readiness to ride. Safety is our first concern.

Riding “double” is extremely dangerous, and is not practiced here.

A portion of our sales is shared with the Red Feather Mountain Community Churches Assistance Program to help pay for groceries, prescriptions and heating fuel for our local neighbors in need.

We are an equal family dude ranch vacation opportunity employer and provider, authorized by special use permit on the Roosevelt National Forest.
