At day's end, you'll appreciate the Home Ranch's impeccable service and facilities (six rooms in the main house and eight cozy cabins). Snuggle under a downy duvet, relax by the woodstove with a bottomless cookie jar by your side, or soak in the private hot tub on your cabin's secluded porch. Meals are prepared with culinary refinement beyond what you'd expect from typical dude-ranch fare. After dinner, guests gather around the fireplace as the Ranch Hand Band plays cowboy classics. From $500 all-inclusive. (970) 879-1780.
