It’s the ultimate in traditional western vacations – perfect for families, couples, singles and small groups.
An Intimate Colorado Dude Ranch Setting
One of the best things about Elk Mountain Ranch is the number of guests – 30. This intimate atmosphere allows activities to be tailored to meet each guests’ needs, interests and abilities.
When you arrive at our Colorado dude ranch, plan to find a most outstanding ranch, a group of competent, personable, talented and friendly staff, a lot of terrific things to do, and flowers and a gift basket in your room. Oh, and lots of fun and relaxation too.
