Adult Only vacations at Vista Verde
In the fall, and during certain times in the winter, the ranch turns into an adult only ranch resort. This is a great time for romantic getaways for couples, but also a very safe and friendly environment for single travelers, or a fun option for getaways with a bunch of friends (see our Share and Save special).
Summer 2012 Adult only weeks are August 26- September 30.
Winter 2013 Adult only times are January 6-Feb 15
Fall Cattle Round-Up
Although Vista Verde offers a luxury ranch experience, there is no reason why you can’t get out and get dirty during the day. During much of the month of September, guests can experience what it’s like to really be a cowboy or cowgirl by taking part in our Fall Cattle Round-up. You’ll spend the first couple days of the week working in the arena and honing your horsemanship and cattle working skills. After that, we pack lunches each morning and head out for some serious all-day rides to round-up the cattle. As this isn’t a canned experience, you may go out and ride all day without finding any cows, or you might find a bunch within the first 10 minutes and have them back at the ranch by noon. Some days we ride from the ranch, some days we trailer out into the forest. You will be covering a lot of terrain, as the cows are out on over 16,000 acres. The riding is rugged and guests need to have a sense of adventure while doing this job. Because there are so many cattle to gather, the experience is offered each week from September 2-30, 2012. Typically, the earlier weeks are ones where we find more cows, more readily. The final 2 weeks tend to be more of a hide and seek game, as we seek out the more sneaky ones who have eluded us so far. If you’ve wanted to experience the real deal, this is it! Please note that our other activities are still offered during these weeks, so it is still a great time to dabble in the many adventures that make up our all-inclusive Colorado vacation experience, as you don’t have to round-up cattle every day.
