Home Ranch, the only Relais & Chateaux dude ranch in Colorado, offers all-inclusive vacation packages for Christmas and New Year's Eve that allow you to enjoy fun winter activities without worrying about finding parking, planning meals or elbowing your way through a hotel lobby each morning.
With direct flights into the Steamboat/Hayden Airport from 11 major cities nationwide, getting to this top-rated mountain paradise is easier than you think. Plus, The Home Ranch will gladly pick you up from the local airport (HDN). This allows you to enjoy your trip to the ranch without stressing out before your vacation even begins.
The holidays are a time to celebrate togetherness – that's why The Home Ranch offers numerous family activities this time of year, including sledding, tubing and sleigh rides. If your family is more active, head out on the 30 km of groomed trails perfect for Nordic skiing, snowshoeing and backcountry skiing as well as lessons. If you're a downhill enthusiast, the ranch offers a valet shuttle service to and from the Steamboat Ski Resort. Home Ranch will provide expert guidance on all area activities so you can explore your natural surroundings or, if you want to lay low, you can relax in your private hot tub or curl up with a book in your private cabin or lodge room.
The Home Ranch experience doesn't end there. Since you will build up an appetite during your daily activities, Executive Chef Clyde Nelson and his kitchen staff will happily prepare homemade meals everyday using fresh, local ingredients, offering an unbeatable Colorado culinary experience. The ranch sources organic produce year-round and offers beef, pork and eggs naturally-raised on Clyde's Farm in order to provide the highest quality ingredients to their guests. There is no set menu because meals are created around what's fresh and available in the area. Whether it's Christmas or a normal Thursday, you will not be disappointed by this quality cuisine.
If you're thinking about heading to The Home Ranch this winter, book before Thanksgiving for travel dates between Jan. 3-Jan. 31 and receive a free, full-day pass to Steamboat Ski Resort for each member in your party (when you book five nights or more).
