Since its inception in 1980, our Colorado dude ranch known as The Home Ranch has been distinguished by the beauty of its setting, its singular charm and style, its gifted and hospitable staff, and its amazing food. The quality of the guest experience, its memorable and challenging activities in both winter and summer, is now legendary.

Since 1987, membership in the famed Relais & Chateaux small hotel association has extended its reach and reputation, and The Home Ranch is now one of the best dude ranches and beloved guest ranches in the world. We invite you to come and experience the warmth of our Western Hospitality and the stunning beauty of the Elk River Valley.

Probably the most personal and ... magical? ... resort experience I've ever had. The staff -- as friendly and warm as you can imagine - anticipated and accommodated every need and want. The setting is ranch and wildlands, but inside you are enfolded in warmth and luxury.

Last year was by far our most magical Christmas thanks to The Home Ranch. It breaks my heart that we will not be there this year to celebrate with the amazing friends we made. This was the kind of experience you dream of and one that becomes a most cherished family memory! From the food, which was fitting of Five Stars, to the never-ending activities (horseback riding, tubing, skiing, sleigh rides, nightly activities) to the most incredible, unparalleled staff, The Home Ranch took the greatest care of every little detail. Brooks even went out of his way and drove to the store to get cold medicine for my son, who arrived horribly sick. They took such great care of him, making him special meals and delivering them to our cabin.Speaking of our cabin ... it was magical, with a Christmas tree for us to decorate, plenty of firewood available for the wood stove and a hot tub on the porch - and it was impeccably maintained. I really can't say enough about this place and the people-each and every one. I almost forgot to point out those incredible scones and my favorite nightly cookies!! I look forward to our next visit ... it cannot come soon enough!

Home Ranch is a truly unique Colorado experience. The facilities and grounds are Western in feel and style, the service is exceptional and the staff is friendly and warm. I spent two nights there this past February for a cross-country ski race held on the property. The food was exceptional and chef Jonathan uses locally grown produce whenever possible. We also visited the horses, spent time with the ranch dog and poked around the historic buildings. The ski event was top-notch with impeccably groomed trails and a phenomenal post race meal on the back deck overlooking the trails. It was a small event and part of me hopes it remains that way. No need to leave the property during your stay, everything you could desire is right there! I hope to spend time there during the summer months as well. Thanks to Brooks, Clyde, Salina and the rest of the staff at Home Ranch for providing a fantastic experience.

Visited for the first time 21 years ago and always dreamed of going back. Brought the 12 and 16 year-old grand kids for a week to share and expose them to the unsurpassed beauty of the Ranch. The level of service, attention to detail, commitment to the quality of experience of all of their guests cannot be overstated. Not to mention the incredible food. Not cheap, but worth every penny and then some. Only hope we'll have another opportunity to visit in the not-too-distant future.

It truly feels like home. Warm, comfortable, real, and relaxing. The care they provide for all of the ranch's living creatures ( including guests!), and their stewardship of their beyond special surroundings makes for memories that will keep us coming back.
