My family of 6 just returned from a stay at Lone Mountain Guest Ranch, and I have to say that it is, hands down, one of the best family vacations we've had. Our 4 kids range in age from 10-18, and we all went together to participate in all the activities: horseback riding, fly-fishing, whitewater rafting, zip-lining, touring Yellowstone, hiking, etc.. This is a place where the parents can do everything WITH their kids if they choose, or where the younger kids can go and participate in the kids' programs if the parents need a break or the kids are too young. We never utilized the kids' program, but the kids I saw seemed to be having a great time.
The service and friendliness of the staff is unmatched, the food is great, the entertainment is fun and relaxing.
We have been to many, many destinations: Relais and Chateaux properties, Four Seasons resorts, and have been to Europe, the Caribbean, Hawaii, Mexico, and Costa Rica, many times. While those have all been great trips in their own ways, Lone Mountain Ranch provided a fantastic family memory-making trip that we will never forget.
