Saddle up! Owned by the same family since 1790, this 2,000-acre dude ranch about 25 minutes southwest of downtown may suit you if you're looking for a rural mountain experience and a family atmosphere, with plenty of ranch-style food, homey activities like square dancing and cookouts, and horseback riding. Cottages, which vary considerably in size, are functional rather than fancy. Camping and RV sites also available. Weekly rates including lodging, all meals, and unlimited riding and other activities are available. Nightly rates for cabins only are also available.
