Tumbling River Ranch is a truly special place for parents and grandparents to enjoy our one of a kind family vacation. The heart of our business is week long stays for families and we do that for about 8 weeks of the summer season. At our awesome elevation, the air is clear, skies bright and the mountains giant. We are the premier “kid” ranch in Colorado with full programs for babies, kids ages 6-11 and teens. Our philosophy is that if the kids are having a great time, the parents can’t help but relax and enjoy the ranch as well. The kids will try and experience new adventures, new animals and enjoy the fun and enthusiasm of our awesome ranch crew. As for activities, we are constantly adding and updating our programs. Our guests always comment on how many activities we have in comparison to other ranches. Activities for family members include fly-fishing, hiking, trapshooting, family rodeos, white-water rafting, and or course horseback riding!
Your family will enjoy beautiful horseback riding (half-day rides, all-day rides, arena work and our amazing overnight pack trip). Our riding is special: we can get you where only mountain goats go, to 12,200 feet above sea level! You will enjoy the back county in a way you have never experienced before. We live for families returning year after year to their same cozy cabin, familiar faces and our highest level of service, hospitality and comfort.
Let’s not forget the most important part of the vacation: no cooking for a week! Meals are a source of pride to us. Everything here is home-cooked. We make our own breads and pastries, and guarantee that you will not have any instant anything here. Typical dinners will feature tri-tip roasts, smoked pork tenderloin, grilled chicken, and Danish pork barbecued ribs–all you can eat! We have lots of cookouts, and you haven’t lived until you’ve ridden several hours up to a high mountain meadow and smelled coffee brewing and bacon cooking.
