The cowboy life in Denver was not that long ago yet the thought of living on the range and riding horses everywhere is foreign to us now. Lost Valley Dude and Guest Ranch gives Denver the opportunity to experience what it is like to live in Colorado cabins, ride cross-country on horseback, wrangle cattle and more.
Located two hours south-southwest of Denver in the Colorado Rockies, Lost Valley is the only Colorado ranch to receive AAA’s Four Diamond rating for 30 consecutive years as a premier Denver vacation. Lost Valley caters to the whole family and gives parents time to spend away from their kids during the day while feeling at ease that the children are having fun and looked after too.
Children activities are catered to according to age groups. Kids get to learn what is like to be a cowboy by learning to ride and groom their own horses and learn about the cowboy’s principles of responsibility. There are plenty of children’s programs and for all ages there is also fishing, hiking, tubing, rafting, tennis, crafts, hay rides and more. For those who would prefer to spend their vacations away from children, there are also special adults only weeks at Lost Valley.
One of the most popular activities to do on this dude ranch is horseback riding, of course. Guests get to ride cross-country on trails that are only traveled by elk and deer while listening to the flutter of Colorado aspen. The length of the rides is based on how the riders are feeling that day. There are scheduled cowboy cookouts for breakfast and lunches. In the evenings, experience home cooked from scratch traditional Western-style American dishes from Marion’s Kitchen. If you happen to have caught any fish earlier in the day, the kitchen will easily cook your catch.
Taking a Denver vacation at Lost Valley Dude and Guest Ranch is not only fun for the entire family but also perfect for keeping to a budgeted vacation as almost everything is all-inclusive. Experience Lost Valley’s “Brand of Western Hospitality” this year.
