Responsible tourism: Colorado working ranch accommodation, USA
Here at the ranch we have added guest accommodation that is both in keeping with the stunning natural surroundings as well as being sustainable and kind to the environment. We built our first cabin to run on hydro power, and the most recent addition runs on solar. We're passionate about renewable energy and are fully supportive of affordable power options for our future generations, and we'd love nothing more than to work with engineers in the local area to make it happen!
When vacationing on our ranch you'll enjoy incredible scenery all day long, and there are plenty of opportunities to get out an explore. Head out hiking, or rent a bike in nearby Glenwood Springs. We also run horseback riding tours around the Ranch, where you can enjoy peaceful vistas and get to know our well loved horses.
We're a working ranch, and we do everything as sustainably as possible. Our elk meat comes from elks raised right here on the ranch, and we supply this to local outlets who can then sell it to local people with minimal food miles incurred. Everything we produce is natural and free from chemicals.
We proudly support the Colorado Girl Scouts on their annual outing and camping trip here at the Ranch! With good ole' fashioned camp fire s'mores and elk sausages with all the fixin's for supper. We also offer this traditional camping experience to our guests as a fun and enjoyable way to experience what life is like living amidst the great outdoors.
We're in a peaceful and rural location and its easy to forget about the world around you with guests arriving and things getting busy on the farm! We do believe in spreading the benefits of tourism as widely as we can and we have teamed up with attraction providers to offer packages to our guests. Companies we'd recommend and can organise bookings with include a local rafting company, bike hire company, as well as a great local fisherman who can take you out and show you the best spots!
As well as raising elk and selling our meats locally, we're also custom hayers which is our main job alongside welcoming guests to the ranch! We always make everyone feel very welcome in our part of Colorado, we'll supply you with fresh eggs for your breakfast and any help you need to plan your adventures during your stay!
