A recent stay at the Zapata Ranch leaves us eagerly looking forward to a return visit!! The staff are all very welcoming, helpful and eager to tailor your ranch stay as you like it- work, ride horses, relax, soak in the hot tub, bird, walk, read, roam the bison, visit the great Sand Dunes National Park,...or just hang out in the rustic chic lodge and eat very well. We were there during calving and it was very interesting. Set in a huge valley with a spectacular backdrop of mountains, the Zapata's scenery is a great match to an amazing experience. The welcome is warm and sincere from everyone!
