This superior luxury ranch hidden away in the beautiful secluded Elk River Valley in the Rocky Mountain high country, with hay meadows and mountain vistas is remote yet very accessible. The Vista Verde only has capacity for 40 guests so you are assured of a warm and friendly welcome along with exceptional service.
With riding being the main focus, there is plenty on offer – including daily morning and afternoon rides and also for those wanting more, there are all day rides with a picnic. Rides are normally limited to 2-6 riders so that each adventure can be tailored to suit the individuals riding ability. Although primarily a riding ranch, there are a wide range of other activities on offer, including river rafting, fly-fishing, rock climbing, hiking, mountain biking, steer roping and even hot air ballooning.
There truly is something for everyone, including children and teens, who have their own daily programme.Facilities include a fitness centre, swimming pool, games room and ‘Fountain Deck’ - a delightful centre of water fun for children. Massages are also available for those that require additional pampering. The ranch accommodation is either in luxury lodge rooms or cabins, each being individual in its décor and all ensuite.
Award winning chefs prepare three mouth-watering meals per day, which are served either in the inviting lodge, on the sun deck or out on the trail. Home baked breads and pastries are always on offer, as well as home grown vegetables and home made ice cream. Wine and beer are included with the meals and other finer wines are also available to purchase.
