Beth, It was a pleasure to have you and your family with us this summer. We enjoyed getting to know you all and happy that you were able to bring Ally along as well. Riding horses in the mountains sure bets swim practice! More

Elk Mountain Ranch is one of the most wonderful places on earth, think family camp with cowboys. We spent a glorious week this August with our two daughters ages 4 & 6. Having no riding experience we were reassured by the orientation on the first day and thoroughly enjoyed the riding to a point that we hope to continue to... More

Our family (wife and two boys - 8 and 10) had a wonderful time at this ranch. It started by a very warm greeting the moment we drove on the ranch. Somehow they knew our names and called us by name from day one. Probably one of the biggest things that we noticed from day one was how well the... More

We came as a German family of 5 and didn't really know what we would have to expect. At every time of our stay we felt very warmly taken care of by all team members.

Hallo Ulrich, It was an honor to have your family with us this summer. We sure enjoyed our conversations and learning more about Germany. Hopefully, the kids were able to apply the English skills and didn't pick up any bad ones around the barn. We would love to have you all back with us in the future. Bis bald..... Auf... More

The hospitality of all the staff went beyond our expectations. The trail rides provided beautiful scenery and the meals were wonderful. Our kids participated in the kids program and they had so much fun with the wonderful kids camp leaders. They rode horses, did crafts, worked with the pigs, goats and sheep, searched for gold, and much, much more. They... More

Fantastic ranch vacation for the whole family. Our family, including my wife, 12 yr old daughter, and 10 yr old son, felt immediately at home with Tom, Sue, and all their staff.
