Guest Ranches
The guest ranch experiences in Winter Park are truly extraordinary. Take the environmentally friendly Devil’s Thumb Ranch Resort & Spa, for instance, with its rustically upscale accommodations, fine dining and array of outdoor and wilderness recreation. C Lazy U, which has been in operation for 90 years, is an authentic dude ranch with a rich history, rustic elegance, legendary cuisine and signature 5-Spur Service™. Drowsy Water Guest Ranch in nearby Granby is nestled into 700 private acres in a beautiful mountain valley and offers horseback riding, ranch activities, kids programs and much more.

There’s something charming about staying in a B&B or inn, and the Winter Park area has two fabulous options. Wild Horse Inn in Fraser offers distinctive rooms and cabins – some of which are even pet friendly. It’s a perfect combination of comfort, style and rustic elegance, combined with amazing food and hosts. At Winter Park Chateau, visitors enjoy a prime downtown Winter Park location that is walking distance to most restaurants and nightlife. Boasting Victorian charm, the accommodations here include eight guest rooms, some with balconies, fireplaces and jetted tubs. There is also a hot tub, gazebo, terraced back landing area and an entertainment living room for all guests.

Yurts & More
The 12 elevated yurts at Snow Mountain Ranch are available for rental year-round, but they are not heated. Each pet friendly yurt (there is an additional pet fee) can accommodate up to six people, with one queen bed and two bunk beds. A bathhouse is located in the yurt village that has flush toilets, hot showers, hair dryers and a coin-operated washer and dryer. The High Lonesome Hut on Berthoud Pass sits within a 160-acre meadow and spruce forest, surrounded by the Arapaho National Forest. The hut is located at the end of a 2.5-mile trail that can be accessed by any non-motorized method. It features electricity, running water, an indoor toilet and shower and room for up to 12 guests. Arapaho Valley Ranch is surrounded by the Arapaho National Forest and is located in one of the most beautiful wilderness areas of the Indian Peaks Wilderness. It offers luxurious “glamping” tipi and tent accommodations, as well as old-school campsites. There are also a number of other RV parks and campgrounds from which to choose.
