Secluded in a broad, verdant valley, this deluxe dude ranch attracts an international clientele, including both Hollywood royalty and the real thing. The healthy all-inclusive rates (starting at $2,590/week) include your own personal horse, luxurious Western-style accommodations (with humidifiers), fine meals, live entertainment, and just about any outdoor activity you can dream up—it's the ultimate in hedonism without ostentation. The instructors are top-notch, the ratio of guests to staff is nearly one to one, and the children's programs are unbeatable. They'll take you up nearby Baldy Mountain in a Sno-Cat during ski season, and they run a top-notch fly-fishing operation. The minimum stay is seven days in summer and five days during the December holiday season, but the ranch has a few summer weeks set aside with a shorter three-day minimum.
