Colorado Dude Ranch Unplugged. With everything seemingly turning corporate or franchised, it is a comfort to know a family owned dude ranch offering the vacationing family a down home, old-fashioned good time. The cyber world stays inside when you come to The Black Mountain Ranch, a dude ranch that has been family owned since 1903. Your souvenirs here are experiences out in the wilds and backcountry of the Colorado mountain country, and maybe a few fun items from our gift shop. But nothing can compare to the memories and photos taken as souvenirs when out with us on your dude ranch adventure. Meals are served family style, with conversation and tall tales swapped at the end of an adventurous day spent riding, hiking, fishing and learning about the horses. Because the dude ranch is family owned and operated, the chance to really get to know the hosts gives the vacation a touch that seems to have become a long-lost art. With a family owned dude ranch vacation, you get old school style hospitality as well as good times in the fresh air. And it isn't just horse riding that keeps you going. Rafting rivers, hiking mountains, learning backcountry skills and techniques are all part of the experience. The hosts have decades of experience out in the Colorado backcountry and are always happy to tell guests about it. It isn't uncommon for former guests to return year after year and stay in touch with the hosts on these vacations. If you are feeling the urge to disconnect from the fast paced and connected world, contact us and we will arrange a fantastic down home dude ranch vacation. This is just the ticket to get you back to your old ways and get rid of that fast paced world stress.
