Harmel's Ranch Resort is a family mountain guest ranch located at the merging of Spring Creek and the magnificent Taylor River in Gunnison County, Colorado. At an altitude of 8,412 feet, the ranch is made up of 300 acres of trees, water, and meadowland lying in a beautiful valley surrounded by 1.6 million acres of the Gunnison National Forest.

History and comfort... Harmel's was originally homesteaded by wagon train in the 1890's. Today, the ranch boasts 37 cabins with all the amenities (stables, dining room, laundry facilities, rec room, hot tub, sauna, swimming pool, conference area, etc.). The unique cabins were built one at a time, placed in the perfect spot for size, and numbered accordingly.

Cabin #1, for instance, has been renovated to be used as the ranch's store and fly shop. Take a look around when you visit the store; you'll notice it was built with an axe -- now a lost art. Your hosts have kept the rustic look on the outside of the cabins while turning the interiors into clean and comfortable cottages, many with kitchens.

A river runs through... Taylor River runs through the camp, offering a romantic mountain setting and fantastic fishing. The ranch's 3/4 mile of river has been rated 10x Gold Medal quality. Here you can catch Rainbows, Cutthroat, Browns, and Brookies -- Grand Slam fishing! Harmel's strong suit, however, is their Western hospitality. They pride themselves on being able to say "Yes" to you. Come take in the fresh mountain air, beautiful scenery, and abundant wildlife

Hearty menus... The dining room, with its newly refinished floors and rustic decor of antiques, overlooks the Taylor River. You'll be able to see people fly fishing on the river and hundreds of hummingbirds sipping sugar water from the feeders. Three delicious meals per day are available, with at least one buffet daily, including the expansive chuckwagon dinners. The menu offers a varied choice of entrees, from hearty charcoal-broiled steaks to delicious fresh fish or vegetarian dishes. They really feed you like a king at Harmel's!

Activities... are plentiful at Harmel's Ranch Resort and are designed for flexibility and fun. Enjoy horseback riding, mountain biking (bring your own bike), fly fishing, BBQ & steak cookouts, horseshoes, square dancing, hayrides, whitewater rafting, massage therapy, hiking, movies on the big-screen television, and other events throughout the spring and summer months. All of this and more are offered right on the ranch, with no driving required. Your hosts strive to make your vacation as stress-free as possible.

Horseback riding... Extensive horse programs offer options from a one-hour learning ride to guided trail riding throughout the week, with three different riding levels (beginner, intermediate, and advanced) as well as overnight pack trips and all-day wilderness rides available. From the youngest buckaroo (must be 7 years of age) to the most weathered cowboy, Harmel's has a mount and a program for your horseback riding pleasure!

Harmel's Ranch Resort could be the vacation you've been waiting for. Steve, Brad, and the rest of the staff at Harmel's do their best to help you have a good time, so when you leave through Harmel's big gate you will say, "That was a great vacation!"
