Horseback rides are tailored to the interest and ability of the individual guests, with plenty of riding through unspoiled wilderness. Remote in the San Isabel National Forest near Buena Vista, Elk Mountain Ranch offers a breathtaking panorama of snow-capped peaks and a variety of wildlife to observe -- a nature lover's and photographer's paradise.

Log cottages and lodge rooms are carpeted and tastefully furnished, with each accommodation including a private bath and daily housekeeping. The suite in the main lodge and five of the cabins all have two bedrooms, with the sixth cabin having three bedrooms -- ideal for family vacations. There are also three lodge rooms in the Pioneer Lodge, all with private exterior entrances and sharing a long front porch. Two of these rooms can be combined for families with older children.

The common areas in the Main Lodge give guests plenty of space in which to spend some relaxing time. In the lodge room with large fireplace as well as the enclosed porch and sun deck, catch up with fellow guests, curl up with a good book from the library, or play one of the many games available. You can watch a movie in the movie room.

Sure to be a highlight of your stay, the superb, varied, and full-course meals will delight both hearty and discerning appetites. Enjoy trail ride cookouts, a steak fry, hors d'oeuvres, candlelight suppers, and fabulous desserts!

Whether you goal is to improve your horseback riding, experience all the breathtaking beauty and exciting adventure of the Rockies, or simply get away from it all, you are sure to be relaxed and renewed after a visit to Elk Mountain Ranch. Committed to upholding the deserved reputation for a traditional Western experience which is unsurpassed, the friendly staff at Elk Mountain Ranch ensures your stay will be a memorable one. .

A family-oriented guest ranch, Elk Mountain also offers a full kids' program for children ages three to seven. Children eight and older are usually able to participate in regular ranch activities, but are always welcome to join the kids' program. On Saturday, the children will put on a rodeo.

An abundance of activity awaits you at Elk Mountain Ranch, all amidst the picturesque scenery of aspen and evergreen on Little Bull Creek.

Each weekly vacation package includes your own personal horse with trail guides and instruction, a thrilling white-water raft trip, a scenic vehicle trip to Aspen, and a host of other ranch activities such as trap shooting, archery, hayrides, square dances, campfires, and musical entertainment.

The ranch's remote high mountain location also lends itself to hiking and exploration. Discover an area rich in Indian and mining heritage where wildflowers and wildlife are abundant.
