From the Horse's Mouth

"Elk Mountain Ranch offers family dude ranch vacations. In concert with regular ranch activities, this Colorado guest ranch has a full kids' program for ages 3-7 years old. Two children's counselors will offer a well-supervised, fun-filled day of kid-friendly activities." "Unplug from the modern world and get into nature for horseback riding, white water rafting, fishing, hot springs, trapshooting, marksmanship, archery, hiking, mountain biking, and more. Elk Mountain Ranch has no TV or landline phones, allowing guests to unwind ." "Ranch owners Tom and Sue work hard to ensure guests have the trip of a lifetime on their Colorado ranch vacation and many guests return year after year." "Superb, varied, home-cooked meals delight both the hearty and discerning appetites. Trail ride cookouts, champagne brunch, steak fry, hors d-oeuvres, fabulous desserts, and kid-friendly options. The highlight at week's end at this Colorado dude ranch is the country candlelight dinner. Fresh baked cookies, snacks and fruit bowl always available between meals. Special diets happily accommodated." "As Colorado's highest guest ranch at 9,600 feet elevation, the views at Elk Mountain Ranch are amazing."
