There is so much for us to tell you about Vista Verde to help you! We are a passionate group of people who call this ranch our home, and we want to welcome in guests who will feel the same about the ranch. So, let’s explore!
All-Inclusive Packages Make Vacation Planning Easy
We are strongly committed to providing the many benefits to our guests that come with our all-inclusive vacation ranch packages. Put your wallet away and just choose what you want to do each day based on how you’re feeling and what sounds interesting, rather than worrying about the cost. Lodging, guided activities, equipment, instruction, meals, beer and wine, kids programs, and transport to and from the local airport are all included in your stay at the ranch.

A Horseback Riding Vacation
Although we are much more than just a riding guest ranch, the horses are often what draw guests to Vista Verde. We pride ourselves on our herd of healthy and kind-hearted horses, and their care is at the heart of our horsemanship program. You see, through our in-depth instruction and multiple horsemanship clinic opportunities, we teach you how to ride our horses the way we have trained them. That means you have a better riding experience, your horse enjoys having you as their rider, and you help them by reinforcing their training so they continue to be willing and happy. Everyone wins!
But It’s Not Only About Horses
Vista Verde falls somewhere between a traditional dude ranch and a luxury resort. Like a traditional dude ranch, we are all about sharing the Western lifestyle with our guests, and building relationships through this more simple way of living. And, with a herd of 100 horses, it’s hard to not notice that this is a ranch. But there is also the New West side of the ranch, with the fabulous facilities, delectable culinary options, and diverse program of activities that you expect to find at a resort. Not a rider? Never fear, we have plenty for you to do at Vista Verde!
Summer Dude Ranch Family Vacations
The classic dude ranch family vacation with a luxurious spin on the whole concept. Luxury log cabins, talented chefs preparing amazing meals, diverse offering of activities, but still s’mores by the campfire, and memories that will last a lifetime.
Colorado Winter Vacations
Imagine sitting by a roaring fire while the snow gently falls outside after a day of skiing, sleigh rides, and tubing. This is the epitome of a Winter Wonderland! A winter vacation at Vista Verde brings the best of a snow vacation to you with the ease and comforts of an all-inclusive resort.
Autumn Adult-Only Vacations
Quaking aspens set the hillsides aglow, and everything is burnished in colors of red, orange, and yellow. Autumn is the time for adult-only vacations and lots of adventures on the trail, paired with plenty of relaxing in your hot tub or by the fire in your cozy log cabin!
