The Elk River Guest Ranch is located in one of the most beautiful places in the state of Colorado. Surrounded by the Routt and Medicine Bow National Forests and with the Mount Zirkel Wilderness as a backdrop, you can escape to a peaceful surrounding. At 7,500 feet and the Elk River by its side, the ranch offers rustic cabin rentals, special events, retreats, reunions, and weddings with a connection to many activities to those wishing to take a break and breathe the mountain air. This ranch, having been in existence since 1902, has been everything from a mining camp, to a local watering hole, to a fully inclusive dude ranch. Currently the ranch offers a few cabin rentals with a 2-4 night minimum, depending on the season and time booked, that range in size from a studio that sleeps 2 to a lodge housing up to 12. The whole ranch may be available to host your special event. Combined with our knowledge of the area and connections, Elk River Guest Ranch can create the experience you will be sure to remember.
