Luxury Dude Ranch Accommodations
Vista Verde style is first class and friendly, whether you choose to stay in a private cabin or deluxe lodge room. The quiet, luxurious cabins are all stand-alone units, not duplexes, and range from one to three bedrooms and one to three bathrooms with living rooms, wood stoves and private hot tubs out on the deck. The spacious lodge rooms are very convenient and have sitting areas, balconies and gorgeous mountain views, paired with the rustic feel of a Colorado dude ranch.
If you have the expectation of amenities like you would find at the best resorts, Vista Verde will deliver, but in a casual and warm manner. We have invested heavily in the ranch over the years and are proud of our major Lodge addition, classy Indoor Riding Arena, Kids cabin, landscaping improvements and swimming pool. In addition, we are constantly rotating our cabins through an upgrade and updating process. With a philosophy of, “How can we make this better?”, there are always new projects on the horizon to meet the expectations of a well traveled guest who expects the best of a resort, but in our dude ranch setting.
In Room – Each Cabin and Lodge room offers a snack bar, refrigerator stocked with complimentary beverages, coffee maker, hairdryer, robes, plus much more. Each day our magical housekeeping fairies come and tidy up for you, as well as turn down your beds in the evening. And you read it right, there are no phones or TV’s in the accommodations. Wireless internet is available in the Main Lodge at no charge.
The Fitness Center offers an elliptical and treadmill as well as a multi-gym for strength training. Chances are, you’ll never visit this area as you can get a better workout with a better view on the trail! But it’s here for those times when you just need a gym fix. Yoga is also offered weekly.
The Swimming Pool debuted in June 2011 and gives you a place to relax and cool off at the end of the day, or when you’re just not ready for another adventure.
The Coyote Corral is where you’ll find the spacious Kid’s Cabin and the low ropes course. The kids pretty much own this area, but the adults can resort to bribes for entrance into the Kid’s Cabin.
The Great Room is an area for lounging as well as gathering with other guests and staff during Happy Half-Hour daily and some of our evening programs. With beautiful views of the “Sunday pasture” and a great roaring fire in the winter months, it’s elegant and spacious, yet warm and inviting.
Indoor Riding Arena – Our huge and airy indoor riding arena is a great place to meet up with our horse trainers for a clinic. It’s cool in the summer and heated in the winter so you and your horse can focus on learning more together.
Named after the local mountains, our ten cabins are rustic on the outside and anything but on the inside. Of course like the mountains, they are beautiful and spectacular without being the same, so no one cabin is better than the another.
Furnished with a mix of antique, western art, lodge pole pine beds and handmade log furniture, the cabins are comfortable and luxurious. The cabins range from one bedroom, one bathroom to three bedroom, three bathroom. They are quite spacious, and we fit you to the one that gives the right amount of space for the size of your group.
Every cabin has a sitting area with a wood-burning stove for ambiance and to cozy up to on those cool nights. And, each cabin has its own hot tub on the deck so you can sit under the stars and soak at the end of the day.
Convenience, comfort and wonderful views. Located just up the stairs of our Main Lodge, you don’t even have to put on shoes to come down for breakfast! Our three lodge rooms are named after nearby lakes that have captured our fancy. Each has a private bathroom and small sitting area.
Recently remodeled and furnished with beautiful western art and handmade king beds, the spacious rooms provide sanctuary to come back to after a long day in the saddle. For those who don’t need as much space, or are traveling alone, the lodge rooms are a perfect choice.
