Located in the main lodge at the ranch. This is a private room with a queen bed, a twin bed with a trundle, and a twin pull-out couch, sleeping up to 5 people. The lodge was built in 1969, and we are working full time to beautify the property. You will be well taken care of by our staff. There will be boot prints at the front door, and smiling faces working around the ranch-always excited to welcome you! Read the Guest Access section to learn more about all of the fun things to do around here!

On property we offer: seasonal fishing at our private lake, horseback riding, hiking, kayaking, gaga ball, outdoor volleyball, indoor swimming, and much more.

Each season, there are fun and exciting things to do around us:
*Summer: hiking, fishing, horseback riding, our firepit, and local fun attractions near us (see below). In September, we have Oktoberfest in town, and there are hot air balloon festivals in the area!
*Fall: We have a large amount of Aspens that draw people to the area during their turning during the fall season. You will find many picture-taking opportunities nearly everywhere you go!
*Winter: When snow begins to come, you can enjoy our fireplace and some hot chocolate after a day of playing in the snow and sledding! We are a little over an hour away from ski towns such as Breckenridge and Monarch, so you can also enjoy coming back to a nice fire and comfortable place after a day of skiing!

Where you’ll be

Florissant, Colorado, United States

We are in a quiet and peaceful neighborhood off of dirt roads. The neighborhood roads are maintained by the county, and the roads on property are maintained by staff. There are lots of beautiful places on property to walk, and many neighbors walk on the roads if you want to really get your steps in! Because of animals in the area, we do not recommend walking alone at dawn or dusk.
