Badger Creek Ranch Jan 30 2012

High in the spectacular Colorado Rocky Mountains sits working cattle operation Badger Creek Ranch, providing authentic western ranch vacations perfectly suited to keen riders.

Guests stepping through the gates of Badger Creek Ranch are promised the western vacation adventure of a lifetime by owners Natalie & Brian Allio, and Chrissy & Dave McFarren, who welcome wannabe cowboys and cowgirls to join their crew of wranglers. As a working ranch, Badger Creek offers guests the chance to ride fences, round up, doctor and sort their cattle. Ranch life at this Colorado guest ranch is traditional and authentic, and with a guest capacity of just six, Badger Creek creates a small, homely atmosphere.where first-rate hospitality and service come first.

Guest can immerse themselves in western ranch life, saddling up one of the ranch’s sturdy cow horses to cover mile upon mile of mesas and ride the open range. After a long day in the saddle, hearty home-cooked meals await, served family style in the dining room. After an evening spent under the starry Colorado sky recounting the day’s adventures and planning the next one, guests can retire to Badger Creek’s traditional and comfortable accommodations in the ranch bunkhouse, ready for another day of western adventure.

With no set schedule, each day at Badger Creek runs to guests’ requests – be it improving horsemanship skills in the arena; taking relaxing horseback rides through beautiful open country vistas or to ancient ruins on the ranch; or tackling everyday ranch work with Badger Creek’s cowboy crew.

This adult-oriented guest ranch, although ideal for keen and competent riders, also welcomes guests without any prior horseback riding experience. Beginners are coached on the basics in the arena until confident and able to head out on the open range, and our staff are always on hand to impart their extensive horsemanship knowledge and ensure the comfort of every rider. Those feeling a little saddle sore can take advantage of Badger Creek’s many off-ranch activities, which include rafting, fishing, trips to ghost towns and festivals, and much more.

For an authentic taste of western ranch and rural life in a peaceful, tranquil setting, a guest ranch vacation at Badger Creek ticks all the boxes.
